I feel so bad for everyone that is still waiting! I cancelled all my families pre orders a week or so ago. I’ve been loyal to Rogers for over 10 years and all people want is updates and the truth. If it’s a supply issues tell us, if it’s something you CAN control but something messed up just tell us!
Everyday I called stores & reps on the phone and got mixed answers, not good from a large business like Rogers.
Ended up buying 2 AW S4 out right at Apple, they had plenty. Now 2 less things to owe Rogers money for so it’ll be a bit easier to leave one day. I get FULL bars with freedom mobile LTE in my house and 1-2 W/Rogers lol.
I was looking at the activation thread this morning and it seems that a lot of people are still having issues with activation and error codes. Would it be safe to assume that there is a possibility they are limiting the number of watches shipped on preorder based on this. I haven’t heard of other carriers having similar problems and from my understanding, Those who purchase outright from Apple are having better success with activation on the Rogers network. There are some people who are still having issues even when purchasing outright and the problem seems to be the Rogers network and connection issues.

It says " or newer" but doesn't specify any of the Xs or Xs Max models. Either way if anyone did activate it before this promotion I don't think it will let them get thag $250. Rogers is known for this.
After spending an hour on the phone the answer I got was they are on backorder, and Rogers doesn’t have a estimated time frame as to when they will be in!! Very unprofessional on Rogers part. The best offer they had was to buy it outright from the Apple store and then when I’m ready I can add it to my plan...... the reason I preorder was to have it on release (3weeks on Rogers preorder ad) not to be waiting weeks or months with no answers.
