I called ROGERS about 1 month ago and inquired about the apple LTE watch
they (Mat ) told me it would cost $10/mnth which i thought was reasonable
I was shocked when I ROGERS tonight and was informed they don't have plans to support this watch , a check of their records confirmed they had spoken to me and noted my conversation
they offered their apologies but no possible compensation
very disappointed in them
Did the rep at Telus happen to mention how much they'd be charging?
Honestly, with Bell doing it at $5 a month, I'd be surprised if all of the other carriers didn't match it. (even though the US carriers are charging $10).
Good! I'm hoping Bell has really started something here that we'll all eventually benefit from. One bucket of data - light up as many devices to share it for $5 per month - each (provided they have an eSIM).
Considering most people are only going to use one or two devices at a time, it really shouldn't be using up a lot of sessions on the carriers base stations. It's practically free revenue for the carriers for a one-time provisioning.
(ie. why shouldn't they do it?)
I just received my new iWatch 3 yesterday. After calling Rogers for support so that the watch will work independently from the iPhone, they told me that they cannot do it. Grrrrrrrrr. I paid $1800 for the new watch with excitement about its untethering. The technical support person was really pleasant and said he would look into it and call me back. He did call me back and said that there were no dates for which Rogers would support this product. I'm now going to explore BELL and TELUS as they apparently support it. I'm disappointed as I've been with Rogers for about 30 years. All good things come to an end.
Dont know how you paid $1,800 when the highest Apple Watch 3 is $989 and that with taxes is near $1,100.....
As for Rogers, they said they won't support it at the moment and there is a thread already made about this on here. Unfortunately the reps give misinformation all the time ( as i am dealing with this issue right now with my mother and her services for Smart home).
Telus won't support it until December. However Bell does support it as of this moment. Rogers will release the service sometime next year as they said.
