A Rogers agent suckered my into getting Ignite TV and now I am being told that there is no way of getting rid of call waiting. Does anyone know of a solution to this? (I was told that to get rid of Ignite TV, I would lose my home phone number due to "system limitations".) How do I get rid of call waiting?
@1234444w43 : I just checked and couldn't see a way to delete call waiting online. I did find the following:
Changing Your Home Phone Plan or Calling Features?To modify your services:
However, as mentioned by @Biollw, why not just ignore it or make use of it depending on what you feel like doing at the time?
I tried live chat and calling them. They both gave me their profound apology (which they are experts at) and said that it couldn't be removed and asked me if there was anything else they could help me with (as if they had already helped me with something).
As for ignoring it, while I thank you for pointing that out (I had been under the impression that flipping over to the new caller was mandatory), I find the beeps very annoying for both me and the current caller.
Check with customer service. Great suggestion. I posted here without checking without customer service first. Thanks for pointing that out.
I don't know whether you're being sarcastic or whether you're contradicting what you said in post 4 where you said you did try chat and call?
i have spoken with 8 representatives to try to turn it off because, for me, it is rude to switch over to talk to someone else and i don't care about the beeps but my 88 year old father goes nuts because he doesn't understand the entire concept and thinks he's being ignored. i pay a pretty penny for the phone, i should not be forced to use call waiting and voicemail if i want. why can't i?
I can wholeheartedly appreciate wanting your home phone features to match your usage. The Ignite Home Phone service comes with 6 features, and each are selected when setting up the service. To my knowledge however there's no alternative option to call waiting that can be selected in lieu of it nor can the service order be completed without selecting 6 features. Apologies for the inconvenience, we will ensure our product team is aware of the request.
