Re: Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular models) Activation

@rflats771 hmmm I thought only the XS and XS Max have embedded esims.

Last years X didn’t have that to the best of my knowledge but I could be wrong.

@nasa25 I thought it was only iPhone Xs purchased from Apple directly, I'm really not sure, I thought I heard about it on Howardforums? (shrug)

Hmmm yeah. I’ll have to look further into that.

Just tried it again early this morning. Originally I was getting a ws516 or ws300 code even just at the captcha. Worked like a charm at 6:15am!! About time Rogers figures it out

@Alexdurmann That's great news! It's about time Rogers gets their p00p in a group! Hopefully this is a upward trend.

Good to hear of another successful activation.

I’ve never even heard of the ws516 code lol

Haven’t seen the 501 yet I don’t think.

So many codes!

Tried just now for fun.
Ws300 code after the 911 verification page as per normal procedure

Also add another phantom reserved line to my account for the failed activation

The saga continues

Re: Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular models) Activation

I’ve been fighting with this same WS300 error all week. The only response I’ve had from Rogers is “try again later.” I see some lucky people have been able to escalate, so I’ll give them another (probably useless) call this morning.

If Maude’s keeping track:
iPhone 7, iOS 12.0; AW3, watchOS 5.1. WS300 normally pops after confirming my plan, but before any 911 entries as others have mentioned. There have been times where the error has popped earlier, but 95% of the time, it’s at the location mentioned above.

This is quite ridiculous for Rogers. We’ve been waiting for this service to literally pay more money each month, for a year, and when it finally arrives, it doesn’t work. Others have mentioned escalations to Apple, which leads me to believe that Rogers doesn’t even know what’s going on, and there will be no quick turnaround on this one.
