After being notified by Samsung that they have stopped selling the Galaxy Note 7 due to reported safety issues, we immediately suspended shipments and sales of the device in all our stores and through our website. Samsung is working on a replacement program and we’ll continue to work with them to ensure the process is seamless for our customers. In the meantime, customers can visit their nearest Rogers store to exchange their Note 7 or get a loaner device.
For discussion, please continue to post them in @Meowmix's Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Reservation numbers / Questions thread here.
Stay tuned to this thread for updates on the Samsung Note 7 Replacement program.
Samsung has issued a product recall on the Note7 and are advising all Note7 users to power down their device and stop use immediately due to battery cell issues. Please see more info on Samsung's Note7 Product Replacement at http://CanadaNote7exchange.expertinquiry.com
Direct Exchange through Samsung
Impacted customers can now register their device at CanadaNote7exchange.expertinquiry.com for a direct exchange through Samsung. Samsung will process an exchange and send the customer a replacement device, as well as a return kit for their current device.
Replacement through Rogers Retail Store
Impacted customers can visit a Rogers Retail Store and we will send off the affected Samsung Galaxy Note7 to the authorized Samsung repair facility. Once Samsung provides a replacement device, the replacement will be shipped to the store and you will be contacted to arrange a pick-up.
Exchange for Comparable Device
For Samsung Galaxy Note7 devices purchased on or before September 2, we are offering the option to exchange their Note7 for a different device of their choice (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge). Customers are to return to their point of purchase for this option.
Thanks for your patience while we gathered details regarding this situation.
Here's what you need to know:
1. Please power down the device and stop use immediately.
2. You will receive a $100 credit if you exchange for a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge device. Alternatively, you will receive a $25 credit if you exchange for a device OTHER THAN an S7 or S7 edge. These two credits cannot be combined.
3. If you purchased your Note7 from a Rogers store, please return the device, all accessories and packaging to the point of purchase for exchange/return.
4. If you purchased your Note 7 from rogers.com, please call us (1-888-764-3771) for exchange/return.
