Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Questions / Reservation number!

Hello @oemconcept

Their shipping location isn't in Mississauga. It's in Toronto. If they haven't been picked up then they should tonight. Mine did that last year and actually was picked up but the store failed to call me. Also is this a authorized store or Rogers Plus store

Is there any way to get the Samsung 7 for less? I'm on a two yearshare everything plan with a Samsung 4 that is due for an upgrade

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Questions / Reservation number!

I do not know what plan you have. You have to switch to Share Everything plus plan and you will be on premium tab. For Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, you will be paying $499 plus tax and be on premium tab for 24 months. Each month remaining balance decreases as you keep the plan with Rogers. When the balance reaches zero, you are eligible to upgrade again. 

 

If your current plan is cheaper and worth keeping it, I think it is better to purchase the phone outright. I have 7GB Share Everyting plus I switched last Oct. When I tried to do hardware upgrade to S7 Edge, I was asked to swith to 9GB or 5GB Share Everything Plus to upgrade. I had to pay extra $45 a month for 9GB and $25 a month for 5GB. It was not worth it. I gave up the idea of upgrading to S7 Edge with free VR Gear and walked out of the Rogers Plus Store. Americans have the option to spread the price of phone over 24 months at zero interst rate, but we don't.

Hello @donnalynnwright

Unfortunately your plan will not work to upgrade for the new Galaxy S7 and edge. You need a shared everything plus plan on order to upgrade to those for the current pricing. Also the devices are as low as u can get them. The only other thing I could say is buy it outright.

You are eligible to upgrade anytime but you must pay the remaining flextab balance from your last upgrade. Once you 2 years is up you can upgrade without paying the remaining flextab as it will be at $0 but u still have to pay the device price as set.

Unfortunately no device is eligible for that plan. U must upgrade to the new plan or call in and see what they can do!

Well it is now day 7.  My reservation is still open. Ihave changed from #82 to 78.  I read the posts from meowmix about the phones being in backorder. Any body have any idea what the timeframe to clear this might be. No opinon from me this time, just fact and question.

Hello @sparky70

There is no time frame... No one can give u a actual time when Samsung will send devices. It's up to them when they have enough to send over to Rogers or any carrier. At this point it's a waiting game.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Questions / Reservation number!

Hey guys,

Enjoying the phone so far... Quick question though. Is it just me or the Gear VR was supposed to come with a 6 game bundle? There is nothing to show anywhere I checked... I know this is not a Rogers thing, since it's a Samsung promo, but is it that kind of thing that is US only?

In the US, if you activate Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, Bestbuy offers free VR Gear + 6 game bundle and 64GB MicroSD card. In the US, T-Mobile even offers one year of free Neflix subscription and Verizon even offers free Samsung Gear 2 Watch. You get to choose one of the three colours - Black, Silver and Gold for S7 Edge in the US. 

 

In Canada, if you order with Carrier before March 11, you get free VR Gear but no games bundle. If you purchase unlock phone before March 11 at full price of $999.99 from Samsung Experience Store, you are offered Free VR Gear and 128GB MicroSD but still NO GAMES bundle. In Canada there is only Black colour available for S7 Edge. 

 

The US Samsung promotion is until March 18. Living in Canada forces us to pay more for inferior bundle. What do you expect when BIG THREE dominate the wireless market.
