Rogers Basic Prepaid Unlimited Local Evenings/Weekends + Texting $120/Year


If you are one of those people who use a cell phone only for emergencies and make very few calls, Rogers has a limited time offer that may interest you.

They are advertising a plan with unlimited local calling during evenings and weekends with unlimited text messages for only $120 per year!  At only $10 per month, this is probably the lowest you will find while getting decent coverage.  It includes 50 minutes of day time calls to last you the year, in case you do need to make that emergency call and additional minutes or long distance are priced at $0.50/minute so would quickly add up if you do use it for calling.

If you are more of a text person though, you get unlimited Canadian text messages (outgoing and received) and voicemail, call display, and call waiting are included.

This plan does not include a phone, but most unlocked phones have no issues with the Rogers network. If you want to stay with well known stores, Staples has unlocked phones starting at $50 while Best Buy has a very basic phone starting at $40.  Many stores or online outlets will have refurbished phones at great deals and you can always check Kijiji etc for local deals.

    It sounds great, even better than what I’m using (7-11’s Speakout with unlimited text for $10).
    I might consider switching to this plan.
    But what’s the catch? There must be something… like after 1 year expire I won’t be able to renew and Rogers offers me something more expensive?

      They offered a similar plan last year and people said it renewed. Someone asked them on twitter and they said as long as you add $120 in credit it will renew, but always best to call and ask
      The catch is the $0.50/min calls if long distance or over your minutes, adds up quickly when other plans cost 1/2 that per min
