Samsung Galaxy S2

I've Been Here Awhile

I spoke with a Rogers rep and he said that they will not be getting the S2 yet. He said probably not until earliest September, but more likely even later in the year.

 

Too bad...its an amazing phone, but I've been saving my upgrade for months and months for the S2 only to be disappointed that I have to wait for everyone else to get it first. Smiley Sad

My guess is that yesterday's "accidental"  & temporary renaming of this forum to "galaxy S3"  was perhaps not an accident, but just premature?

 

Given the Monastic like silence from rogers...here is my next guess...rogers will eventually say that they are not going to proceed with the distribution of the GSll LTE and will instead be distributing the Nexus a.k.a. GSlll....

Actually the thread was not renamed, someone wrote a message saying he'd rather wait for the Galaxy S3 and change the subject of his post, someone replied to his message so the name changed to Re : Samsung Galaxy S3. It has nothing to do with Rogers or the mods. Someone simply changed the subject.

Oh wait, I forgot the best of the BS:
"While we wish we could get this device to everyone who has reserved the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE on the reservations system today, we’re thrilled to be able to deliver on our first-to-market commitment by shipping Canada’s first LTE smartphones.
We’re also excited to confirm that we’ll continue to fulfill orders for the device as early as next week and expect to have enough devices for everyone in the reservations system."
http://redboard.rogers.com/2011/samsung-galaxy-s-ii-lte-smartphone-to-ship-as-early-as-next-week/
Translation:
"To our investors: We're excited to be able say we were the first to ship the 10 demo devices we received from Samsung a while back. They still looked brand new so we decided to give them away to the first 10 people on the reservation system who won't know the difference. Who the **bleep** knows when the rest will arrive. We're still trying to figure out the best placement of or logo on the device and how to best place and lock the bloatware into the phone in order to trick our valued (sorry, i mean valuable) customers into using as much of the bloatware as possible for maximum profit potential once the devices arrive for us to **bleep** around with. We will be able to use this "first" to continue our long string of loosely attained marketing strategies geared towards deceiving the unsuspecting public into believing that we are the "first" at everything and that we care about delivering our customers wants and needs ina timely fashion.
When we say we hope to ship the remaining devices to those on the waiting list "as early as next week", it simply means that we don't have the devices yet to ship this week but that also means that we have strategically crafted our words in the statement  to leave open the possibility of shipping the devices to an infinite time frame, stringing the customers on the waiting list along until we've sold enough iPhones to make Apple happy and crappier HTC and Motorola devices which we won't be able to sell as well after we launch the Samsung Galaxy S2."
To our valuable customers: "**bleep** you and have fun waiting while we re-invest your reservation money into the new Rogers Bank! Have a nice day and thank you for choosing Rogers."

I found the SGS2 on Rogers page and hit Order Now and made it all the way through to the checkout, but didn't proceed.

 

Someone else care to try?

Sorry for the "cap" that follow;  RIGHT ON MOBILESYRUP!!!!!  MOBILESYRUP DID IT'S JOB, INVESTIGATE, VERIFY & REPORT!!!

 

Who said that MOBILESYRUP would be not write this story out of concern that rogers would "cut them off early testing etc"??

 

One of my favorite Quotes in the article was "Rogers sent an email back saying that a shipment miraculously arrived today and customers can expect it shortly."

 

MOBILESYRUPS' wonder at the miraculous arrival is only matched by mine!!!

 

Think about this...we are not waiting in line for MOBILSYRUP, yet they DELIVERED A SUCCINCT HONEST RESPONSE...& rogers?

Also, the Mobilesyrup says that the phones are good to go!

honestly if Rogers could email them back saying that then how come no one else got a email like that or Rogers came out live to say that. Yes they added it on their website today but yet never really said any date nor anything.. HMMMMM.. Is Rogers really playing us here?

Although i am happy for this good news i am happier that i made the right choice to get the HTC Raider. I am not going to wait any longer for a phone that has similar specs inside ( other then the 1.5ghz )

Nope still shows " Store locator"..

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

Wow.... kudos to those of you who e-mailed MobileSyrup - especially Shaggyskunk.  It actually worked.   We got an answer!

 

Thought I'm sure it's a coincidence that the phone is now up on the Rogers website (i.e. they probably just happened to finally receive a big shipment from Samsung today, and it has nothing to do with our complaining), it is nonetheless AWESOME to see that beautiful piece of hardware in all its shining glory on the Rogers site.  This MUST mean that they now have ample stock, and hopefully will be shipping them out to us immediately, and sending them to the stores as well.

 

Finally, finally, finally!!!   I feel giddy right now!

The title of the webpage is:

NO PAGE TITLE FOUND IN CMS FOR: I727CLKR

 

It seems like the didn't have the page ready. They only had 4 months to get it ready...

It's GREAT to see that even though we are small in comparison Megarogers, we can hold them accountable!  Tman, EVERYONE "EVOKED" this response from MOBILESYRUP!  We SHOULD ALL send a Thank You e-mail to info@mobilesyrup.com!!

 

One last thing folks...who would want a Stinking SHAGGYSKUNK on their tail 🙂

I got all the way to the point that I could order it. The hardware listed was shown as No Name.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

It just now changed to Store Locator.

Just got the Raider yesterday but I'm still in the queue for the SGS2. I will stay in line for now but if they don't ship by tomorrow I'm keeping the Raider.

When I cliced Store locator, it brought up my location...I called them and they said they have not received them as of yet....BUT, they could well arrive during the course of the day TODAY..

 

One other point....the person that I spoke to at the rogers store WAS AWARE OF THE MOBILESYRUP update & rogeres resonse to them.

GREAT job emailing Mobile Syrup Shaggyskunk and the rest who did! Thanks to Mobile Syrup too for investigating!

AMAZING what it takes to incite this beastly corporation into complying with our requests for transparency!...well, we got a little anyways, but Rogers left the possibility open for even more BS so who knows! I'll believe it when the phone is in my hands!
