Hello, For those of you who are having issues login in to your CA Samsung account, but are able to login to your samsung account Via moblil or via US account login. I was told tp create new login with new email address to register for promotion for VR GIFT; you would also have to change the registered email on your phone for this to work. Samsung Rep gave me this as a work around for the issue I am having. Make sure CA is part of the web address as you need to login on Canadian linked Login.
After many reasonably happy years with my Windows Lumia 920, I decided to take the plunge and get a Samsung S8. The transition was neither quick nor painless. Everything was so simple on my 920, everything was there on the first screen and if not, just a quick swipe down and lesser used apps would appear. It was easy and it worked well together. If I took a photo, the image was in my gallery immediately. It was also on my OneDrive cloud so it was available anywhere. The Galaxy is shiny but seems so fragile. I've already covered up the sides and back with a thick rubber frame case. This was unnecessary with the 920. In fact the 920 could be used as a weapon if I needed it. There are positives. The Galaxy, whether through Bixby or Hello Google seems to understand my voice without a problem. Cortana seemed to have trouble with English, although it was nice that she would read things back to me. The Galaxy is like over stimulation with so many features and so many ways to do the same thing. It does seem to get better reception and things such as wireless calling can be useful. The learning curve will be steep but I'll get there. I have to because Microsoft Abandoned me. My guess is that they would have 10 to 15% of the market if they stayed the course. Instead they decided to be the next Blackberry and look where they are. So sad to see MS shooting itself and it's shareholders in the foot when they had a good product that just needed time to grow and mature. It's like Betamax and VHS.
