Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

One thing that I should tell everyone is that the phone is actually 249.99 on the 3 year plan. They posted 199.99 on the website because of the 50$ credit you are eligible for if you do a hardware upgarde.

So this is how it went down (I have e-billing, not sure how it will differ for those that don't)

They put the $40 reservation fee back onto my account balance

They charged $249.99 onto the account balance

They told me to go online and apply for the $50 hardware upgrade rebate (easier thing in the world) so that you get the rebate right away instead of doing it via mail (which can take 6-8 weeks)

They charged a $35 activation fee

Depending how much time you have left on your contract, they will charge you a early hardware upgrade fee (any thing after 30 months, there is no charge)

 

So all the charges are done on my Rogers Bill, I didn't actually pay anything in store when I picked up the phone.

I'm pretty sure that alot of people expected the 50$ rebate onto of the 199.99 (I know I did), so that may turn some people off.....

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

Thanks Tim!  Great additional info!  The whole rebate thing is Accountants smoke & mirrors...I really don't know why they bother, if your are giving a $50.00 discount....do it at the counter.  Even though, it's a pretty small PITA, it's STILL our PITA....like what, people can't figure out how to go online?

 

I am surprised that you were not asked to pay cash-money when you picked it up, so, if they just put the $249.00 on you Rogers account...I guess the rebate thing is a wash.!

 

Enjoy your new toy, and thanks for your GREAT "customer service" TIM!! 🙂

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

I live in Thunder Bay On and I also have been waiting impatiently for this phone.  Does anyone have any idea when it will be available to the public.  Unfortunately I didn't know you could reserve it.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

Hi Tim, does the Rogers LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy have the Home button, or the 4 Interactive buttons?

 

Thanks

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

I'm guessing that they do the $50 rebate thing in hopes that some people forget about it.
Before this phone I had the iPhone 3gs. this is my first experience with Android and I have to say I love it and I haven't even scratched the surface yet!!
The phone has the 4 interactive buttons
