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

It's not an automatic credit back, I called Rogers 1-888, support told me they cant instantly credit it back, they told me to go back to the store and return my phone (buyers remorse) and get another phone. Kind of a hassle to me in my opnion. What's even worse in my case, I returned my HTC Raider last night in exchange for the GS2 (buyers remorse) and they said thats its the last time I can do that. I talked to supprort about it and they told me to bring it back to the old store because I didn't want it and go to a different Rogers store and get it for $179 instead.

Not worth the hassle for me.

I'm here at Rogers Plus store in MarkvilleMall in Markham and the lady said they have a few in stock. Call and reserve one before you go to be sure

Guys, it's not a real price drop.  Instead of subsidizing 450$, you are subsidizing 470$ now.  The phone still retails at 649.99$ outright.

it is for those that are upgrading. for those that arent, yeah no difference.  A drop this soon should be credited to everyone IMHO.

Not really.  Regardless if you were upgrading or not, it's just the pie shape that changed:

199.99$ now + 450 subsidized = 649.99$

179.99$ now + 470 subsidized = 649.99$

Can someone please post when they have successfully price adjusted their 199.99 SGS2?

 

Please answer if you did it in store or if you managed to get someone on the phone to do it for you.

 

Again i don't want to hassle with the whole process.

I've already applied my rebate and the whole act of having to exchange and redo it and then apply for rebate AGAIN

will only cause issues in the billing system and we all know how messed up the bills can be sometimes on the rogers end of things.

exactly its a price drop in what part of the pie you are paying instead of paying $200 out of the total you now only pay $180. (po-tay-toe po-tah-toe)

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

kid_icarus

okay

so i don't get why it HAS to be done at the store

 

still makes no sense to me.

is it just becaue of the "commission" aspect?

I just got off the phone with a lady at Rogers billing department.  I asked her about the price drop and if there was any way to get refunded for it. She quoted the 15 day price protection and said she was able to do it.

 

She will be crediting my account $40 (I got 2 phones) on the next billing cycle (Nov 15th for me).  I got a reference number and she said she would text me as soon as they credited my account (She said likely a couple days after billing cycle - Nov 17). 

 

I recommend everyone call and talk to billing make sure you get a name and reference number just in case.

Yeah, I can't imagine that rogers wants anymore negative press over the release of the SGll.  I am going to wait a few more days before calling,customer service/customer retention... that way, I think more of rogers people will know what's going on.  It's kind of unfair to hold the person that answers the phone at rogers, responsible for what management has not done and not informed their staff.

Why? It took all of 5 minutes and the girl I had was quite pleasant and knowledgeable. Might as well call now before everyone else gets wind of it.

Thanks JimmyJo

 

i called again too (3rd time today)

and i got a rep that knew the "rule"

and showed it to his boss and it was approved right away.

 

the hard part was him trying to remember where the rule was in his guide

 

either way it was done and credit will appear

thank goodness
