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!
@sbradley33 my advice to you....just wait until the issues are resolved.
Keep checking back here daily. Trust me...when they're resolved you'll know about it here.
on another note, 44mm gold cancellations are pouring in. I'm down to lucky number 59 LOL
I'm about to go get my apple watch 4 at the Apple store and I'm wondering if its just easier to go into a rogers store and set this up rather than trying online? my reason for asking is it seems we have endless problems and I honestly cannot be bothered being on hold to Rogers for ages. Should I purchase and head to a store or should I avoid like the plague??
My advise to you Sir/Madam:
1. Get your AW4 from apple
2. Go home and set it up/play with it/enjoy it (Pretend like it's a wifi only model for the time being)
3. Wait until the dust settles and Rogers fixes their network (like I mean 100% fixes it, not fixes to the point where 47.3% of people have a proper connection)
4. Once step 3 is complete, set it up online through your watch app at your leisure
The ONLY way to set up cellular is through the watch app. You have absolutely zero reason to go into the rogers store unless you have about 10 hours to kill and looking for the most inefficient way to waste a day
Yup they won't ship until their activation/connection issues are in order
Activation is only half the battle. Maintaining an actual connection to the network post activation is the remaining battle.
@KC1996 Yup. But honestly the AW functions perfectly without cellular. Only thing is you need to have your iPhone nearby to make use of all the notifications/functions. So it's just a very minor inconvenience imo.
You can try to activate it but if you get an error code just stop trying. If you get it activated but can't maintain a connection, just put in a ticket with rogers and wait for them to sort out everything (don't bang your head against a wall like I did trying to fix it). And if you get a proper activation and connection first or second try, then awesome. Count yourself lucky.
My main point is don't waste too much of your time on trying to get a proper cellular connection. The system is just hella broken right now. It's up to Rogers to fix it.
