First one was the older 8300HD and after an hour on the phone I was told they could do nothing.
When I found a Next box I gambled again and went through the same thing and literally tried everything. Was on hold for 15 min to no avail.
Figured I'm a good customer with over 25 years but no go.
Both went to electronic drop off. Such a waste.
Tried twice. Both went to electronic drop off. Such a waste.
In future, you can use the tips in post 3 of this thread. You could also have left the boxes at the Thrift Store or Garage Sale for someone else to perhaps use for parts, etc. You could also post them on Kijiji, or similar, for free or nominal amount and someone else may have use for them.
Unfortunately this Unlock the serial number from an account has caused a HUGE amount of ELECTRONIC WASTE.
I have found older Rogers PVRs and a NextBox at both garage sales and Thrift stores only to find out they can't be used. The thrift store I can't track down the owner and the Garage sale told be they are no longer with Rogers.
It doesn't matter that they are no longer with Rogers. They can still call in and have the box released. I have bought boxes from such people and they were able to get the box released so that it can be activated on another account.
