    Is it worth the upgrade? Best bang for your buck

    I currently have a 21$ voice plan. I can also upgrade to $25. I want to know which of the plans is better

    21 plan:
    250 incoming
    250 anytime min
    Unlimited evenings
    250 outgoing text
    Unlimited incoming text
    Visual voicemail, caller id
    Visual call waiting, call forwarding, conference calling
    Canadian long distance 10c a min
    US long distance 15c a minute.

    25 plan:
    Everything in the 21 plan plus
    350 anytime minutes instead of 250
    Unlimited outgoing text
    Unlimited incoming minutes.

    --
    Questions: which would you pick? Which is the better deal? Is the extra 4$ worth it?

    How many minutes per month do you talk?

    Varies intensely month to month. I would say an average of 40 min with standard deviation of 60 min.

    Someone said that the 21 isn't a great plan ( It's a corporate plan) for your buck. I'm wondering if the 25 plan is good

    well, if you aren't going over anything in your plan, the extra 4$ is just money lost from you and given to rogers

    if you went over your minutes then the 25$ plan would be better since incoming calls are unlimited and it gives you an extra 100 minutes, but if you only use 40-100 minutes per months... I see no point in changing

    21 plan only gives 250 text while the other is unlimited text.

    I also basically want to know the value of the 25 plan. That is, for the features you get is the cost a good deal? The 21 is maybe less of a good deal but perhaps a better fit for me, but I could be missing out on a good deal by not talking the 25 dollar deal. I hope what I'm saying makes sense here.

    for the money, I guess the 25$ plan is good

    I have the 17.50$ EPP + 10$ valuepack = 27.50$ for 200 mins, unl ev/wk 6pm, 2500 text, caller id, voicemail

    so it's 2.50$ less for more airtime, unlimited incoming calls and unlimited texting.. so i'd say it's pretty good

    hell maybe I would try to get on that if I could since 25$+30$ 6gb -20$ credits = 35$ and I pay 37.50$ right now :P

    is there a name to this? is it corporate?

    The real decider since not a voice user really, is do you text over 250 texts a month........$4 security.

    Do you currently run any overages or close to, if not stay on what you have,

    unlimited incoming is also nice for the extra $4 but if you only using 40-100 minutes and less than 250 text there is no reason to upgrade, and in fact if it came to a point you need more you can change to the $25 at a later time, thus saving you $4 a month till needed

    standard corporate/business plans, but don't count any plans on getting any credits or very little with these plans....

    It's a hospital plan. On the actual account It's called a government plan.

    So I guess the 25 plan is a better bang for your buck than the 21 plan?

    I probably go close to 250 texts. I have to restrain myself sometimes too be sure of he limit. The other thing is there may be a possibility that the 25 plan disappears in the future if I don't act on it soon enough. I am currently on the 21 plan and can switch anytime right now.

    The money value of the plan is what in thinking about now and that's what guys in this forum know really well

    These plans have existed for years, if and when rogers decides to change them I am sure your tech department when you got plan from at work will notify account holders in advance.

    But as you know your plan bets any market and most retention plans out there. EIther one is bang for teh buck, but reality is its your buck, you can save $4 a month for a year ( $48 + taxes --thats 2 montsh saved basically of the $21 plan )) and use your plan as is without overages, or waste $$48 a year on things you will not use....but then again its security of going over.......so @ $4 you could pay overage on text at $0.10 or 0.15 sent for 30-40 extra texts that one month you may need....
