Samsung Galaxy S2

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

how did you guys get the phone...

my status is still in process.

did you guys get the phone by calling in stores to see if they have any in stock?



Getting the phone....Well, it involved selling some small children, they were not mine, so no stress.  I was actually quite surprised that A. They did arrive on a Saturday... and B.  The rogers store called to say it was there!!

 

I would be pretty certain that your will be there tomorrow...

Like shaggy said. People got phone calls from the stores to go pick them up. Some also called stores to see if any of the phones came in. I got my s2 LTE that way.

how simple is it to transfer your contacts from your old sim card to the new LTE sim card? Or do you have to indivually re-enter everyones number, if that's the case i will cry...no really i will hahaha

Mobile Syrup is saying people from Vancouver already have it...but I havn't been able to find it, I've called about 5 locations.

And if I had to take a giant guess, I'd say that big Rogers location with Canucks logos everywhere would have it first...but I called and they don't know, they said sometime this week. The location I'm having it delivered to has no clue either.

Let me know when you pick it up and I'll let you know if I find out anything else new.

The Rogers Plus store where I got my phone transferred it for me. They connected both old and new phones to this little machine and in a couple of minutes all my over 200 contacts were copied

I just called my local store in Burnaby. Ours are in..

we were ~300 and ~305 on the list.

 

Try giving your store a call in case. The might have forgotten to call the customer.

I GOT MY SGS2!!!!

 

I was around number 1,200 or so on the reservation list.  Hadn't received a call about it or anything, so this morning I just decided to start calling stores to see if they had them.  The 9th store I called had them, and I rushed over immediately to pick one up.   I forgot to ask about how many they had in stock, but in case anyone in the GTA is still looking to find one, you could try calling them.  It's the Victoria  Park store (Gerrard St E & Victoria Park).  2490 Gerrard St E.  (416) 699-1465

 

I bought the phone using a hardware upgrade and got the $50 mail-in rebate form.  The employees of this particular store admitted that they couldn't help me with changing over my data plan for LTE, since they  didn't know anything about LTE plans yet (not their fault... head office clearly hasn't sent out the required materials or info to all the stores).  So they advised me to just call the call centre when I got home, and I was totally fine with that, as I was so happy just to be walking out of the store, SGS2 in-hand!

 

I just got off the phone with the call centre, and I was dealing with one of the most competent, intelligent, friendly and helpful reps I have EVER encountered with Rogers.  He made the changes no problem, put me on the $50/10GB LTE data plan, and he proactively made a few other modifications to my account to save me a few bucks a month.

 

Rogers, I am happy with you today.  This phone is breathtaking.  It's utterly amazing.  It's.... scrumtrelescent!!!   Thank you, big red!

what is the point of reservation system if someone can get the device by calling in stores

first of all why would rogers stores have the phone in stock when there are tons of ppl in reservation system that didn't get the phone yet.

What's the point of complaining no matter what?

 

The reservation system is in place in case there's a shortage of stock, so you're guaranteed one. 

 

Clearly there's no shortage in this case, they just took forever to get them.

apparently in edmonton there will be none of these phones in stock until at least a month unless you are on the reservation list.
