Rogers not honoring a promised credit on my first bill and charging me additional fees
June 26, 2019 went to the Rogers at Tillsonburg store to purchased a sim card with data plan for my already owned phone.
Was upsold to a Samsung s10 with 10gb unlimited plan and a free tablet for a 2 yr contract.
Was made to wait 2 hours in the store and had to go home and get my passport and other documents to prove my identity when I was told my Ontario drivers license and medicare card from Quebec was not good enough.
The stories told to me was all false as they lied to me, due to them thinking i was committing fraud because I moved to Ontario from Quebec!!!??
Was told I would get a free 1st month credit on my phone for the inconvenience of waiting so long and having to go through the hassle just to get a simple line for a phone.
paid my activation fees for phone and tablet.
did not pay for the first month bill as i was owed a credit but paid for the next month and the month after that.
I still have not been given the credit owed
Rogers is billing me late fees
My billing still is not reflective of my payments made in the past
They intermittently cut/throttle my internet access (which my phone is critical for use with work, mail, tethering, etc)
When i call phone support i am told that nothing relayed to me in the store was entered in any support history and that i have to go back to the store and deal with the matter there.
The store knows full well of the issue that is occurring and have yet to help me as all I here is they are waiting for the head office, DSM is aware of the issue... 3 MONTHS???
Now I am not able to cancel my contract??
have a phone with no internet access so i can't be mobile and work
I can certainly appreciate where your levels of frustration are coming from, especially if you've been given a particular set of information. If the credit was promised from store level than the previous agents you've spoken to are correct in that the store would have to administer the resolution. I do hope they're able to resolve this issue for you soon.
In addition, do note that setting up an account requires two valid pieces of government issued identification and a healthcare card is not considered a valid form of government issued ID for use outside of medical stations.
If your data is currently suspended, I would definitely recommend reaching out to our Credit Operations department "here
Alternatively you can reach out via phone at 1-800-268-7815.
Their hours of operations are as follows:
Monday to Friday: 7:00 am - midnight ET
Saturday: 7:30 am - 9 pm ET
Sunday: 7:30 am - 6 pm ET
In regards to cancelling the contract, this is entirely possible. However, as you have been provided with device subsidies, you would be required to pay off the balance of those devices to end the term. Touching on your final point, in the event of a credit/amount dispute, you would still be responsible for paying your monthly service fees or late fees would be applied, as agreed to in our terms of service.
I hope you're able to come to a reasonable conclusion in a timely manner.
