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

By the way, I was NOT on crack when I said I could not find the "end call" while on the phone....If you open up a web site while on the phone, then go back to the phone with the web site still open....the "end call" is gone....on My phone anyway.  If someone wants to confirm, that would be great.


 

Hey Shags,

 

This happens on my wife's Andriod phone as well. The fix I found was when this happens just try swiping the menu bar down from the top. This should list your current call and there should be an End Call button there. Let me know if it works.


Yup Phil...it works!  Thanks!!

I just called Rogers and swtiched over to the 6gb LTE plan. No hassles and the nice lady on the other end was able to get that done right away.

@Todd - Regarding the battery issue. I got off the phone with tech support regarding battery issue and why Im having trouble getting 3G and mainly 95% on EDGE, he told me the same thing, Backup all contacts to sim and do a "Factory data reset", I'll have to do this tonight since it'll take a few to get my apps back up and running again. Hope this works.

 

And BTW, GO launcher is one of the best ive used so far as a launcher including most of their apps/widgets.

I called Rogers too about the LTE plan , and I still have to get a new plan in order to get that, bc it is part of the package, and not a stand alone deal. But im sure ain't going to sacrifice my 700 day time minutes to 200 for a new plan, and besides Alberta doesn't have LTE yet.

shaggy: you may be having a tech issue with your phone. i only once and a while cant connect to a webpage and have to refresh it but other then that absolutely no probs. im also not using lte network. but you should look into this. its either lte network or theres something wrong with your phone.

on hold with rogers at about 2;30pm....CSR is still trying to find this plan, that "went live" on the 17th...yesterday.

rogers REALLY needs to get their act together...AGAIN!  Why does rogers insist on blind-siding their own people??? 

It's not the CSR's fault that they have not been informed.  Why were the customers having to inform rogers CSRs about the delivery of the SGll.

Finally...after listening to rogers, ever so delightful "on hold music" (I'd rather be duct-taped to a chair being forced to watch the New Two and a half Men...over and over) the CSR found the plan....I mentioned that the EE's at rogers should speak to their management about leaving the "front-line" in the lurch, yet again..Sigh.

 

Plan Changed to 6 Gig....Phew...Time now 2:48pm.

 

Next on the List: LTE connectivity issues, but even at 4G speeds...$30 for 6 Gigs is WAY better then what I had been paying for an HSPA+ Rocketstick.....It was $50.00 for 2 Gigs until I got them to reduce that by 50%...but now by paying an extra $10.00 for Shared Data, the cost for BOTH is $40.00!!

 

I have been trying to see if I could get Mobilesyrup to conduct a Survey of rogers customers, with LTE, to determine overall satisfaction with in rogers own words "THE FASTEST WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY ON THE PLANET"?

 

I figure if those that find the LTE speeds and connectivity, well crappy..Send in an e-mail to info@mobilesyrup.com .... perhaps we can be as successful as we were in getting Rogers to address the issue.

Thanks Shorty...It may be an issue with my phone, but I was having similar issues with my rocketstick....it may be more of a location issue, even though I am within 1km of a tower...and can see Parliment Hill (don't know if that is the problem...all those politicians  🙂  with their bad Karma, disturbing the air..yeah, I am wearing my tin foil hat).

You need to restart the phone & do a battery pull & the gps will come off the battery usage.

My s2 LTE did the same thing. My battery dropped 10-15% each hour. This is why i gave it back.

Bestbuy now has the SGll @ $129.00 What was rogers price "guarantee" again... Rogers CSR's still don't have the phone & plan FAQs right yet & the price is dropping faster then the value of B.B. shares..

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

This is because of the Galaxy Nexus & also a few other phones are about to get released. They see that the phone will get sold on a lower price & so they lower it & so doing that will give them more money.. Rogers stays with the same price until they decide to change it.

You can find some of these "hubs" at Samsung's Canada site, under downloads.

This might be what you are looking for...I don't use any of the Hubs....so I am not sure.

There are a few different ones listed along the top of this page.  There is a social, game and music hub listed...
