July 7th, 2009
Today is July 7, 2009 and that means that Rogers Wireless consumers are being charged $0.15 per incoming text message.
To void the incoming message fee simply subscribe to any text plan or value pack that has text messaging included. Customers with my5 plans without a texting package will be charge $0.15 per incoming messagae that is not from one of their chosen five numbers. System alerts and WhoCalled messages will continue to be free regardless if you have a text messaging plan or not.
Text messaging plans start at as low as $5/month for 250 picture of text messages. Give customer care a call at 1-888-ROGERS1 (1-888-764-3771) or 611 from your Rogers mobile phone to add you text plan and avoid the incoming message charge.
Rogers’ discount brand, Fido, will not implement the incoming messaging charge. If you want to switch your Rogers account to Fido a $100 transfer fee will apply and the transfer will only be granted if you are past the one year mark in your contract.
