Rogers, may I request that you seriously consider enabling Data Sense on your Windows Phone devices.
It is an OS component of Windows Phone that enables users to track data usage, but in addition, search for nearby areas with Wi-Fi, ensure that browser use doesn't heavily eat into data, etc.
This, in addition to enabling proper Visual Voicemail on WP (also integrated into the OS) would make WP8 handsets on Rogers fully functional. Not only that, but it would also put Rogers ahead of carriers worldwide (not that already isn't) in the level of WP support, especially in Canada.
Thank you Meowmix, I have been trying to get an answer to that question for a couple of days.
Rogers has unfortunately gone about this the wrong way. Their television ad hyped that they were the first to bring Windows Phone 8 to Canada but did not mention they neglected a great feature of it. Yes their My Account 'app' (web based not native) will tell me what data usage I have consumed but not 1) what applications have consumed it and 2) compare it to WiFi use.
And a big point that few have discussed here is that Data Sense is also a compression system (why the carrier has to be involved) which means I can get more with less. I am guessing this is why Rogers does not want it as it means people can purchase lower data plans.
Please enable a "basic" version of DataSense, that alows us to track our data usage.
All those in favor say "aye"!
(and no, for PayGo customers, the "MyAccount" app doesn't provide the info - the App just doesn't work with PayGo)
Bell does enable DataSense on their Windows Phones; if they've enabled it, obviously so can Rogers...
Let's keep this thread about DataSense only, don't add a grocery list of stuff you want, thanks!
There is possibility of it coming out actually and that involves the GDR2 update. That update is said to "expand" on the carieers supporting DataSense...which I think just means that they have gone for a more Android like approach on this where the feature is not really at the mercy of the carieers having to turn it "on" but that's just a wild guess. Point is, it might be in the GDR2 update. If not, then you already expected that from Rogers so no harm done.
