I must acquire a cell phone for The Parental Units

I want a Rogers/Cantel/AT&T 2 phone cell plan with Nokia 8260's.

The plan itself wasn't too bad. It'll come out to ~$50/month for the two phones. That would give us 100 weekday minutes, unlimited evenings and weekends between the two phones.

I was just about to get it too, but the thing that stopped me was that Joyce (Celtek staffer) pointed out that the first phone comes with the plan for $285. But I had to pay the full price for the second phone - a whopping $450.

*sigh* So I'm now looking into getting refurbished phones. Joyce said the warehouse was busy, so I just left my name and number for her to call me back when she has more info on the Refurbies. =)

She mentioned that she'd give me the Refurbies for $250. Which is a lot better than $450, but the ShopRogers website lists Nokia 8260 Refurbies for $124.

Aaaagh... I couldn't find the 2-in-1 package on the Roger's website, UNTIL I looked in the FAQ. It says that the call comes in to the PRIMARY phone, if there's no answer, it gets routed to the SECONDARY phone, then to mobile message. I don't want that. I want them to both function as separate phones. I just want them both to be on the same bill AND I want a discount for having two phones. =P
