Was misled by agent and now have to pay for it

A few months ago, I received a call from rogers for an upgrade as my contract was up for renewal. During the call i have agreed to try out the new phone they were sending me only if i were able to cancel at any time with no penalty charges. I was clear in telling them that this is a trial period only. Both the original person I have spoken to and the other agent I was transferred to promised me that i can cancel at any time without any penalties. I made sure they repeated themselves a few times confirming this information. A few months later i called as i wanted to upgrade my phone. It was not working well and i was told that i would have to pay over 400$ for an upgrade. I then asked to have my contract cancelled, i was informed that again i would have to pay over 400$ for an early cancellation fee. Long story short, the manager i was transferred to listened to my call and agreed i was misinformed. She left me a voicemail with this information and asked to call back. When I did, the agent told me I can have a free upgrade. The free upgrade they are offering is not what i want, and they don't want to cancel my account. If I knew, that there would be a fee for early cancellation i would have not agreed to renew my contact in the beginning!!! I have a friend, who just received a bundle that consists of the following:60$ plus tax a year which includes a free phone, 100 international texts, 6gigs, free on weekends and after 6pm, unlimited text messaging, 300 anytime minutes, rogers TV. The agents I spoke to told me that this is not available for me. am very frustrated, and I'm not willing to pay more then that as not only has this happened to me, but they did the same thing to my mom, and she ended up paying the 400$ cancellation fee as they could not, conveniently find the call confirming she would not have to pay anything. I feel like i am dealing with a company that does not care about their longtime customers, and I feel tricked/cheated into signing a new contract. I want out and I don’t want to pay for that!
