Anyone had any luck with upgrading at FS or BB lately? Or are they even stickier this time of year and staying with new customers only? I would love to take advantage of the $19.99 S2 LTE at FS right now!
You can not do a upgrade for that price. If you read the fine little print it says " NEW ACTIVATIONS ONLY". This means you going to have to do a new activation & not a hardware upgrade. It rarely happens where BB & FS gives you the new actiovations price for a upgrade.
Still not happy with the network, but speeds are improving. I live north of Toronto and outside LTE zone and often do not get calls on the phone, even if I dial my own number from the home phone. There needs to be something done to make reception better overall but the freezing is something wrong and not typical.
Splashdown.... do you have an LTE SIM and plan? Are you in an LTE area when you can't receive calls?
If you have an LTE SIM and plan, and are experiencing "No service" and "Emergency calls only" messages at specific locations where you know there is a strong Rogers GSM signal.... read the thread about the GS II LTE not receiving calls while on the LTE network.
I suspect that the problem is much more widespread than is recognized.
