Well, I have powered off my Note 7 and moved my SIM back to my Note 5...
No news sources seem to link to the orriginal press release, so for those who want to know they are getting their information from the horses mouth (I know that's what I was looking for), here you go.
I went over to the Rogers reservation system and put in a reservation for a Pixel XL 128GB to replace my Note 7 (hopefully).
Hopefully Rogers has everything figured out by the time my Pixel XL pre-order is in stock, whether that be to refund the purchase of my Note 7 or exchange for the Pixel XL. Worst case, by the time the new phone is ready, they determine that they still won't be accepting the Note 7 devices and I tell the store I don't want the pre-ordered Pixel XL device (which at this point, I really do, I'm so tired of dealing with Samsung on this).
Hopefully things work out and hopefully there is some actual communication for Canadians and more specifically, Rogers customers by the end of this week.
Message from Samsung Canada ;
Update – October 10 at 9:00pm: We received the following statement from Samsung Canada:
“At Samsung Canada we remain committed to working diligently with regulatory authorities, carriers and our retail partners to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation. Canadian consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device. Details of the remedies available for Note7 customers, which will include a full refund at their place of purchase, will be announced shortly. For more information, Canadian consumers should contact 1-800-SAMSUNG.”
Can you ask them what happens when we bought a replacement (locked to Rogers) from kijiji??
Can we please cite sources of information? I'd like a link to the Samsung Canada statement. Their twitter feed doesn't have anything and the news page doesn't either...
