Default Rogers Wireless without a contract

I know someone who purchased an unlocked phone. She intended to "ride out" the rest of her contract with Rogers (less than a year left on it). Instead she went and signed up for a 3 year contract because she was told that all of the reasonably priced plans that Rogers offers are only available on a contract.

When she told me this I thought it was bizarre. My understanding was that Rogers/Bell/Telus/etc justify the contract because they subsidized a phone. If you pay the full price for the phone (or bring your own unlocked phone) then you wouldn't be in a contract, just a month-to-month term.

Is it true that in order to get the published plans that you need to sign up for a contract, or was she mislead?

Most Rogers promotional plans require a three-year term. The regularly listed plans do not. In my experience, Rogers is much more stringent about this than the other carriers.

Would the prices on the page I linked be considered promotional or are they "regular" plans?

Not sure, but as it says at the bottom of the page:

Available on a 3-year term.
Your best bet is to go to a Rogers store and see what they tell you. Otherwise, pick a different provider if possible.
