Re: Apple Watch Series 4 Pre Order/Reservation

Any body knows if they start shipping because stock at the same place I was yesterday morning

I taught they were suppose to ship yesterday or today because when I call the store they told me that I should receive it beginning of this week

Re: Apple Watch Series 4 Pre Order/Reservation

Hi, 

I'm about to go get my apple watch 4 at the Apple store and I'm wondering if its just easier to go into a rogers store and set this up rather than trying online? my reason for asking is it seems we have endless problems and I honestly cannot be bothered being on hold to Rogers for ages.  Should I purchase and head to a store or should I avoid like the plague?? 

 

Thanks

I do not think they are shipping anytime soon until they can fix activation, i am at position 1 😉

LMAO

 

My advise to you Sir/Madam:

 

1. Get your AW4 from apple

2. Go home and set it up/play with it/enjoy it (Pretend like it's a wifi only model for the time being)

3. Wait until the dust settles and Rogers fixes their network (like I mean 100% fixes it, not fixes to the point where 47.3% of people have a proper connection)

4. Once step 3 is complete, set it up online through your watch app at your leisure

 

The ONLY way to set up cellular is through the watch app.  You have absolutely zero reason to go into the rogers store unless you have about 10 hours to kill and looking for the most inefficient way to waste a day

Yup they won't ship until their activation/connection issues are in order

 

Activation is only half the battle.  Maintaining an actual connection to the network post activation is the remaining battle.

Haha awesome, 

 

So pretty much go get it and try the online way and if it doesn't work..use it as an expensive pedometer until rogers pulls their fingers out! 

 

Thank you! good to know the in store way would be like using a chocolate fireguard

I picked up my watch at Rogers yesterday and the aactivation was no problem. The only problem was that the associate hadn’t done any before so it took about 40 minutes.

@KC1996  Yup.  But honestly the AW functions perfectly without cellular.  Only thing is you need to have your iPhone nearby to make use of all the notifications/functions.  So it's just a very minor inconvenience imo.  

 

You can try to activate it but if you get an error code just stop trying.  If you get it activated but can't maintain a connection, just put in a ticket with rogers and wait for them to sort out everything (don't bang your head against a wall like I did trying to fix it).  And if you get a proper activation and connection first or second try, then awesome.  Count yourself lucky.

 

My main point is don't waste too much of your time on trying to get a proper cellular connection.  The system is just hella broken right now.  It's up to Rogers to fix it.

Every Rogers store with 100KM of me said they will not get any. Where did you get yours??
