Coming with a 5MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video capture, the Atrix also has a front-facing camera.

Telus has introduced a couple new policies recently that could result in customers getting upgrades sooner, and seeing lower, more proportionate early cancellation fees. The new hardware upgrade program introduces an Early Device Upgrade fee, which is calculated based on the type of the device you last received, in addition to the number of months remaining on your contract.

Here's how the upgrade fee is calculated:

Voice or Feature Phone - $5 x number of months remaining in contract. Includes standard flip phones, sliders, non-data devices
Smartphone or Feature phone (with minimum data commitment) - $10 x number of months remaining in contract. Includes BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Phone 7 devices
Premium Device - $15 x number of months remaining in contract. Includes iPhones

Here's the example provided on the Telus website:

Pat has an LG Keybo and wants to upgrade to an HTC Desire. He has 15 months left on his contract. What does Pat pay to upgrade?

Pat pays $75 (15 months x $5) in addition to the new device cost ($79.99)

There are a couple of rules that come along with this new upgrade program, like that you must complete at least 6 months of your current contract before being eligible for upgrade at all, and customers on the Credit Limit Program are no eligible for any early upgrade offer.

The cancellation policy is also based on which device you last received, but is more specific. Essentially, your early cancellation fee is calculated using the exact discount you received on your last device, and the time remaining on your contract. There is also a $50 admin fee for non-Quebec customers. It's important to note that this new cancellation fee policy applies only to customers who activated or renewed on or after November 21st, 2010. Other customer who wish to cancel would still have to pay $20 x the number of months remaining on their contract.

Here are some examples of how the policy works:

At activation, the customer receives a $400 discount on a 36 month service term. After 20 months, their cancellation fee will be:
Monthly pro-rated discount = $400 / 36 months = $11.11/month
Remaining discount = $400 - ($11.11 x 20 months) = $177.76
Non-Quebec: Total Cancellation fee = $177.76 + $50 Admin fee = $227.76
Quebec: Total Cancellation fee = $177.76

So there you have it, two new policies coming out of Telus. What do you think about the new early upgrade program? What about the new cancellation policy?

We recently filled you in on the known details of Rogers new brand Chatr, and have more information available for you!

According to internal training documents, "zones" at launch will include Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Ottawa, though maps also included in the material suggest coverage spanning through Quebec and into the east coast.

Marketing based on the reliability of the service, since the service will be using an existing network, Rogers claims this new brand will be able to offer fewer dropped calls, better reception, and one low monthly fee for unlimited talk and text compared to competitors.

Scrapping activation fees with Chatr, customers will purchasing a SIM card, and can choose between 2 plans.Though pricing is yet to be confirmed, it seems as though the first plan will be Unlimited Talk for $35 which will offer unlimited in-province calling and 50 outgoing SMS (unlimited incoming). The second plan, Unlimited Talk & Text is rumoured to be $45, and offers unlimited talk across Canada, along with unlimited SMS to and from Canada and the U.S.A. Keep in mind that these are "in-zone" rates, so customers roaming would be subject to additional fees.

Lastly, the training material leaked shows at least four handsets at launch:

The essential - Nokia 1661 - $49.99 The slider - Nokia 2680 - $89.99 The flip - LG GB125R - $69.99 The QWERTY - Samsung Gravity - $149.99

Since March 15th, Rogers stores received Samsung?s latest hybrid phone, the Corby Pro. This device sports a full 2.8?QVGA touch screen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which reminds us of a mix between the Forever and the Gravity. So everytime you will touch the screen, it will give you a vibrating feedback and when you slide out the keyboard, the screen auto-orientates. The keyboard is sporting bigger keys than the Gravity, which will help to type faster. What differentiates this handset from the competition (the LG Xenon) is its 3.0 Mp camera with WiFi! This will be a hit for customers looking for a device that will give them access to all their social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and My Space, without having to subscribe to a costly data package. The Samsung Corby Pro retails for 274,99$, but if you are willing to commit to a 3 year contract, it will only cost you 69.99$. Don?t forget that if you subscribe before March 31st, your activation fees will be waived and you will get your early evening clock for free!
