I've just spent about half an hour on the phone with a senior Rogers Agent regarding the order of deliveries, and why some people that have reserved theirs on a later date then I preordered mine are getting them before me.
- The final answer after consulting with her colleagues was "We don't have an answer for you at this time. Even though the website stated that prepaying for the phone would entitle you to priority delivery, it has obviously not happened that way, and we apologize. And for any of our agents to have made that statement wasn't appropriate either." (Even though the website stated so.)
The long and short of it, is that the Online Orders are sperate from the Phone Orders, and the Store Orders. Prepay is handled separately from Reservations. They are all different departments, and such, one doesn't guarantee you faster service overall, just faster service over orders from that department. And off the record, I was told "It is all just about marketing, and getting the orders."
@ColinRaininger, that's very disappointing to hear. I'm in the same boat as you. This is likley to be my last pre-order for anything like this. Until all of this, I was quite a happy Rogers customer as I have not had issues with the service itself, but have heard many horror stories when dealing with Rogers support. I took no heed to much of that because my experience was different, until I tried to do my pre-order. Since then, dealing with Rogers staff has been a very trying experience. Seems that many of them just talk to get us off the phone, etc. It took 4 people to assist me with my online-preorder, and all of that failed. It wasn't until the next day (April 11th), that the pre-order actually worked. I'm guessing that as soon as something touches your account internally at Rogers, there is a flag on the account that prevents any web or online stuff from working until a few hours later.
I'll be patient for a few more days, I pre-paid as well and I'm not getting the service speed that I feel we are all justified in getting.
