The moral of this story is: Check your statement, and check it completely. Rogers Wireless is ohhh so sneaky!
I purchased an iphone on contract from Rogers. The phone broke and aftera two week delay (they cited replacement shortages), the sent me a broken replacement.
I called, complained, and they sent out a replacement for the replacement by Canada Post. I promptly packed the broken replacement in the same box and shipped it back the way I got it. Turns out, they claim they never received the phone and according to their records, the packing slip was for Purolator or some other delivery method.
They sent me a letter saying they hadn't received their broken replacement, and would bill me up to $600. if not received within 15 days. After 15 days, they charged my account $750. Yes, that's a $750 charge for a phone that never worked, which I sent back to them!
The real rub here is that I have no choice but to pay for a broken phone that I never wanted, and gave back to them too, in order to keep my phone service connected. lol.
Before this latest incident, Rogers has been billing me monthly for text messaging. Some months, my text messaging fees were as high as $125., and I averaged about $80/month in text charges over a two year period. The irony is, I had added the unlimited text messaging service to my plan and they were also charging me monthly for unlimited text messaging. Approximately every three or four months I would have to call Rogers and spend an hour going over my statements with them, and request a refund for the overcharges. And then like clockwork I would call back again and complain because they conveniently forgot to adjust the interest and tax charges accordingly. This went on for nearly two years. No kidding. In total, nearly $2, 000 in text messaging overcharges.
There's some good news to this story though. Since Roger's wireless tipped me off to the fact that Rogers is proned to overbilling, I also took a look at my Rogers Cable Television Bill and discovered that they've been charging me for additional cable outlets that don't exist, and they've been charging me these fees for over three years.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BILLS PEOPLE!
