    In my house.
    I tried to contact Rogers via their online chat support to ask about the cost to terminate a Data plan, and they gave me the run-around about how it depends on the plan, and that they couldn't tell me. Whatever.

    So I called Customer Support and asked the same question: "I have a Voice plan, and a Data plan. How much does it cost to terminate the data plan?"

    The answer was $100.

    I asked them to confirm that it was $100 TOTAL, no extra fees, no x$ per month left on the contract, and the answer was "$100 Total".

    So, now you know.

    I have not updated my Magic yet, and I don't intend to until/unless they fix the bugs in the bugfix, and it becomes possible to root (in case I want to).

    In the mean time, i will wait out the month they are paying for to see what happens. In the end, it will only cost me $100 to cancel my data plan, and just use WiFi until something better comes along.

    something better like?....

    I don't see what the problem is, the new update has some issues, but I would never go back to the OS you are currently using... that was brutal.

    The new update is not as bad as you make it out to be... the old ROM that your using has way more issues then the new one... besides if you want your DATA back root with this rom and it will come back http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=592856.. This is a 1.5 Cupcake Sense UI ROM based on the official 3.05 Rogers HTC RUU for people who need a stable ROM with all the features working.

    I just saw this thread... I can confirm (twice :rolleyes:) that canceling a data plan costs $100 per phone, no more, no less (it's called the DETF.) We had a Family data plan (with 2 Dream phones), and after doing the math, figured that canceling the Data plan early in the contract (and paying the DETF) made a lot more sense economically if you don't need "real-time" (i.e. I only connect WiFi at home and at work.) We're now only on a Family voice plan (duh!) :p In my case, I'm coming from an old Palm, and only needed a new, recent PDA, but Android only came on smartphones, no "pure" PDA's. Also, phones are heavily subsidized (and still a good price considering the paid DETF). Finally, I wanted nothing to do with WinMo... nor Apple's "closed" eco-system.
