Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

you’re not alone my friend! Keep your fingers crossed perhaps Rogers will support the Apple Watch when the Series 4 is launched? If not there are people like me who will pay more to switch simply because my contract isn’t up yet! Have faith!

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

Technically the Apple Watch 3 and the new Apple Watch have eSIM for sure. I want to buy the Apple Watch 4 but without Rogers supporting eSIM there’s no point. This is somewhat concerning from one of Canadas largest carriers, even Bell had eSIM up for launch day of Apple Watch 3 last year. Heading into the 8th month of the year now with still no clear sight of eSIM support at Rogers. I get they said 2018 so we will continue to give them the benifit of the doubt until December 31st but if it’s not here by then.. be ready for the riots guys....

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

From what I’ve seen Rogers reason behind not having the Apple Watch 3 w/ LTE is because there’s already rumours of the Apple Watch 4 👏🏾👏🏾

Congrats to Bell and Telus for playing the short game - Rogers is in it to win it! Smart move business wise if you ask me 😉

Hopefully the Rogers faithful will get decent deal on data plans when they start carrying the Apple Watch (4 and not 3, fingers crossed) 🤞🏾

Switching providers for a watch is also beyond me! (even though I love my tech.)

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

So what’s your solution? Why don’t we take this the local news and get them to push the envelope??

I consider Rogers move smart because they won’t have any back stock of 3’s when the 4’s come out. They’re obviously not too worried about defecting customers after gaining a lot of customers recently - probably offsets the customers they are forecasted to lose 🤷🏾‍♂️ But what do I know about running a multi million dollar telecom business? 😅😅

1-they wouldn’t have had to worry about having too much stock if they’d been on the ball and ready.

2-what do you mean “all the customers they’ve gained recently”? There’s nothing that makes them more attractive than Bell and Telus.

3-there’s a difference between carrying the physical watches for sale and just supporting them on the network. It was free money they’d be bringing in and keeping their customers (by keeping their customers happy) by just supporting wearable tech, not selling the hardware themselves.

Glitches? What are you talking about? It’s the third iteration of the device in question and wearable tech is new, but this is the third version. And Apple didn’t invent eSim technology. It’s proven tech and to my knowledge there hasn’t been any major glitches for Apple Watch on either Bell or Telus, so your argument falls flat.

 

Have a good day.

Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan

That may work, Rogers seems to be just ignoring us here on this board!

 

Maybe someone with a twitter account could reach out to mobilesyrup or, I dunno, iphoneincanada website?

I just sent an email to mobilesyrup to see if they have any contacts at rogers who can clear things up.  If other people do that as well, they may give it a shot!

 

I don't think its that big of a story for like CBC or something to pick up!
