Customer of Rogers for almost 18 years and have had no issues getting phones I want though Rogers . I currently have and love the lg v30 .
For some reason Rogers hasn't gotten the v35 , v40 or the v50 . I can understand the v50 due to being a 5g network phone. But that doesn't make sense to me either since it would be nice to be 5g ready for next year when 5g starts being available.
Even if I wanted the new lg g8x again Rogers doesn't get this phone , yet all other Canadien competitors have .
Any one know what's up with lg and Rogers ?
Hello @Jerrimy and welcome to the Rogers Community Forums :)!
I'm glad you love your current phone. The device availability can vary depending on the manufacturer.
You can find a list of all available devices here.
As always please keep an eye on rogers.com for all new device releases and announcements :).
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!
I can understand how exciting it can be when a new device that you are interested in is launching soon.
Regrettably, we do not have any information on the LG v60 ThinQ 5. Once we have any information the Rogers Website will be updated first. Click the following link to see all of the phones we are currently carrying: Click Here.
Thank you for your post.
The only reason I switched to Rogers is because we have a corporate plan discount. Rogers can't give a straight answer as to whether or not they will continue carrying LG phones shows they have no care for transparency or it's customers concerns. I could have left almost a year ago now since I finished my contract but was waiting for a phone I liked.
It's been a year, I'm out. The discount I get isn't even enough to keep me anymore given this is the service we get.
I would imagine that far less than 10% of Rogers customers would purchase an LG phone. If the demand was there, they would carry them. You are minority, I am afraid. Rogers (like every other business), is driven by sales and profit. 95% of people want iPhones or Samsung devices, like it or not.
It also may be on LG. They may not want Rogers to carry their devices unless they agree to buy XXX many. Rogers won't do that if they know that they will collect dust.
Bottom line is that they aren't. If you want LG, you are free to switch carriers. 🙂
