iphone 4s canceling data

hi, i'm planning to renew my contract with an upgrade to an iphone 4s in a couple of days and since i'm not a big data user, i was wondering if its possible to cancel my data a month or two after my contract is renewed. i heard you can do that but with a $200 cancellation fee but is that still the case now?

Hey everyone!

 

Although this thread is quite old, I'd like to add a little update since I came across it Smiley

 

Conditions for phone subsidies and downgrade have changed since last post in this thread, you can find the new information here.

 

Hope it helps!

Re: iphone 4s canceling data

It's not $200 anymore. They take the amount of the discount you received, subtract $50 as the voice cancelation portion, and divide the rest by 36 months. Then the amount you owe when you cancel data is the total discount minus $50, minus the number of months into your contract.

For the iPhone 4S it would be
$650 retail price
-$160 amount you pay
=$490
Then
$490
-$50 voice cancelation fee
=$440 data cancelation fee
$440 is the amount to cancel data in the first month

$440/36= $12.23 so if you cancel after one month you data cancelation fee is
$440-$12.22=$427.78 and so on

Re: iphone 4s canceling data

so the cost to cancel data after the first month would be $427.78? the cancelation fee is only a one time thing right?

One time charge. Verify actual amounts at the time you are doing the upgrade.

Re: iphone 4s canceling data

is it the same for Manitoba?

 

i'd like to do what we did with my wifes iPHone 4.  pay $359 for it ($159 subsidized price, +$200 no data penalty) and just sign a voice/text plan.

 

or, can i purchaed the iPhone 5 at the subsidized price, switch to a voice/text plan and pay a lower penatly.

 

i know there are new laws for MB (manitoba), but i'm not 100% clear on  how they work.

 

i'd gladly sign on for another few years, but do NOT want a $60/mth data plan.  i like my $25 retention plan, but need to upgrade to a new iphone from the old 3G
