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

According to the CRTC:

Did you receive a phone or other device at a reduced upfront price (a "device subsidy")? Yes

       -The fee cannot be greater than the amount of your device subsidy.

 

So,  Sign Rogers contract, recieve phone and GearVR in store.  Call 611 and cancel contract.  Pay remaining subsidy,  Walk away with phone and VR.

Hello @Bcsc

Unfortunately it doesn't work like that... While yes You can go on contract and then cancel and pay the remaining balance and a disconnecting fee and ur last month's bill. That's all. BUT you must remain on a contract for 15/30 days. In order to get the Gear VR headset it won't ship to you AFTER 10 days of having the account open. So you will have to keep the account open until u get it and then cancel it and pay it off.

"Those interested in scoring one will have to act fast as the fine print on Bell’s website states, “Offer ends March 7, 2016. Available with new activation or upgrade on a 2-yr term with a Plus plan. Must activate device by April 11, 2016. Allow 10 business days after activation for shipment of Samsung Gear VR."

So you see even Bell has this policy. So before ranting about Rogers, Bell and Telus are doing the same. Go check out their websites if you don't believe me and check out Mobilesyrup as well.

It tells you on your device reservation page. So there may be shortcuts, but I got to MyRogers, click on my phone number, scroll down and click on Device Reservation. Then it brings me to a different page and shows me my number. For example, mine:

No. 8 for S7 Edge....🙂

 

I'm not one for sticking up for Rogers, but a free Gear VR was bound to come with conditions.  I also believe it was a stipulation from Samsung.  Not sure we can blame Rogers for this one; can't believe I said that.

 

Now if only Canadian carriers would drop their data charges!

Oh right, some dreams don't come true.

Hello @temp456

Go into My Rogers - Products And Services -Device Reservation and in that page it show you your number. That number is Canada wide and yes you will get the Gear VR!

Hello @mrfbaggins

Agreed. Just because Samsung said " FREE Gear VR" doesn't mean it won't have conditions and terms like any other product u get for free. Samsung and the carriers make a agreement for it.

Agreed on ur second part!!

Hello @kaos013

For which model? All S7 and S7 Edge have 32GB model. The edge only comes in black
