I have read several articles today regarding BlackBerry confirming that Rogers will not be carring the new Z30 smartphone. I have been with Rogers for a long time now and I am very disappointed and a little sad that a Canadian company the size of Rogers would not support another Canadian company like BlackBerry. I can totally understand that they may not want to carry a large surplus of phones, as the outcome of BlackBerry is still uncertain, but to not offer the new phone in anyway is just bad for business. I have all my business and personal phone, TV, internet and wireless through Rogers and i can honestly say that i will be considering leaving them for a company that will support BlackBerry. I hope that Rogers will reconsider this stupid decision that they have made. Support Canadian companies.
Ummmm.... this is very disappointing.
ROGERS - I urge you to reconsider your decision to not carry the new Blackberry Z30!!!
I have been a loyal Rogers customer for years, even switched from Telus to Rogers. Loved the service, but I believe I am going back to Telus, with this decision to not carry the z30. I have my cell and home phone with Rogers. Very unfortunate that a Canadian company will not support another Canadian company, especially kick them when they are down.
My family and I have been loyal rogers custmers for over 10 years including cable and landline phone services. I just finished reading that rogers will no longer be supporitng Blackberry and will not be offering the new Z30! First thing tomorrow morning I will be calling them to cancell all my services with them to NO LONGER SUPPORT THEM! Thank goodness for Telus and Bell!
Count me in too. What an absolutely shameful decision by Rogers to not offer the Z30 to their customers. It's the best BlackBerry ever made and they decide not to carry it? Rogers should be ashamed of themselves for not supporting another Canadian company especially since Bell, Telus and even the American Carriers are all going to offer it.
It's senseless and bone headed moves like this that will have customers ditching Rogers in droves as soon as some real competition shows up in Canada. I hope in the meantime people vote with their wallets and switch to Bell, Telus or any other Canadian carrier that respects their customers enough to give them what they want. And Rogers likes to claim they are progressive and the number one BlackBerry dealer. What a farce. BlackBerry helped Rogers build up their business and this is the thanks they get. You obviously don't care about what your customers want and have no patriotism.
Shame on you Rogers. I will cancel all my services with you first chance I get. Way to become a follower and not a leader. I guess it takes the threat of a company like Verizon coming to Canada before Rogers would dare to out their customers first. I heard the commercials where Rogers and the other Canadian telcos were frantically campaigning against Verizon's entry into Canada and this decision to not carry the BlackBerry Z30 is an example of why the Canadian public has no sympathy or loyalty to Rogers.
Don't dictate which BlackBerry will serve your customers. We have the right to make that decision ourselves. Your responsibility to your customers is to provide those options.
I implore Rogers to change their stance on the BlackBerry Z30 before they end up losing a lot more clients. There are a ton of upset Rogers customers getting ready to leave as indicated on popular BlackBerry forums. Wake up and shape up Rogers!
I hope Rogers re-thinks their stand on the Z30. I have the Z10, which I love. But the Z30, being a bit bigger and more powerful will be even more attractive as "phablet".
