Just curios if anyone has had there position in line move to shipped? i was positioned at 189 and i moved to 59 a couple hours ago, so i assume 130 have already been shipped! if they keep shipping at this rate then i should have my phone at launch! this is my first pre order from rogers, ive been a rogers customer for 19 years! i was an inch away from moving to telus just so i can get the apple watch - till rogers gave me a loyalty plan i couldn't refuse so i decided to wait it out and good thing i did!
@rokstar I sympathize with you
My advice would be do ship to home from now on. That way you just get the phone delivered to you, pop your existing sim in and you're good to go
As for the watch, yeah it sucks that shipments have been slow. I can only assume that's partly due to the activation issues but it seems like shipments are starting to pick up a bit.
Also re: watch activation issues....I cut rogers like 5% slack just because it's a new line of business for them. Seems like everyone at rogers (save a select few) were blindsided by this launch. Most had like days notice that they would be supporting the watch and were learning on the fly.
Takeaways for Rogers:
1. Start your beta testing LONG before launch. Spend the money to beta test properly and maintain happy customers
2. Improve your internal communication and training. Let people within your company know well in advance of these kinds of launches (albeit might be hard because Apple LOVES to make sure people keep tight lipped about any new products or launches and probably dictates communication timelines)
@Nixle32 thanks for the update.
Just installed it on my S3 Cellular and S4 Wifi only
Cellular is working perfectly on the S3 after the update. I'm glad they fixed the glitch where Apple Music and Radio usage data would show under 'uninstalled apps' in the cellular section. Now the cellular data usage for those apps are correctly categorized.
As an aside, man, the screen on this 44mm watch is just a beauty. I've been spoiled going from a series 0 38mm to an s3 42mm (which I marveled at the screen) to an s4 44mm (which makes the s3 42mm screen look pretty average) all in the course of about 3 weeks lol
Any man that ordered the gold with pink band....the pink is a really light pink....but it's not gonna match well with most dark colours at all. I'll rock pink all day long but I'm not the biggest fan of that muted light pink sports band. I wish apple launched the gold aluminum with more than one option for band colour. Oh well.
I also wish apple offered a band trade in program where we could trade in our new light pink sports bands for something we prefer lol
Ok, so just to respond to that, first, there’s no slack being given to Rogers, period! Second, ship to home was not available for iPhone and certainly not for the watch that they hadn’t even taken stock of yet either. Third, the watch isn’t new territory for Rogers. I was unable to upgrade at launch, on a reserved pre order, with Rogers, after nearly 20 years. There’s 2 other extremely huge carriers that launched e-sim almost 2 years ago, and there’s plenty of data to help Rogers get in gear. Thank you for your opinions, and they are all appreciated. I think at this point, Rogers has just soured the relationship beyond repair
