Re: Samsung Galaxy S4 Reservations.

Hi, I’ve been a Telus customer for almost two years now and my current contract comes to term at the end of this month.  I also want to change my phone with a newer model since my current phone (which I still love the format of it) is getting a bit slow and poky.  The new phone that I am looking for is the new Samsung Galaxy S4 announced yesterday and that should be available next month.

 

Here are the specs Samsung confirmed yesterday: 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 1.9 GHz Quad-Core Processor / 1.6 GHz Octa-Core Processor (to vary by market), Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), 2GB RAM, 16/32/64 GB internal storage, microSD support, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS / GLONASS, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 (LE) and IR LED (Remote Control) and 2,600 mAh battery.

 

So I think your company will have a choice in model to sell.  I know that for the S III, your company, unlike many others chose to have both the 16 GB and 32 GB model and that was great for all your customers.  For the new S4, is there any chance that you could have a 32 GB or even better, the 64 GB model available, even if only by limited special order?  I know that I would pay the premium to get that model and I’m sure some other users in Canada would do the same.  And when I say premium, I’m thinking like 50$ more for the 32GB and 100$ more for the 64GB.  Also, it would be awesome to have the Octa-Core instead of a Quad, but the press release did say “to vary by market”, so I’m guessing this is more a choice that will be made by Samsung than one made the carrier.

 

So, can you please forward this message to the proper department that makes the choices of cell phone models to resell to user and notify me of the actual date at which that premium phone will be available?

 

I’m sorry to say that I’m going to send a similar message to both Telus and Videotron to make sure that at least one carrier that I would consider doing business with will carry the premium model that I want.

 

Thanks and have a great day.

Hello adumontet

At this moment, we have no info on which device Rogers will carry. For a fact the we are NOT getting the Octa core in Canada or the States. Canada & the states are getting the Quad-core version as that one has LTE on it.

As for the GB model. Most like the 32 /64GB version will come. Remember tho, the carriers already have made the deals with Samsung on which model to carry. Also need i remind you that Samsung Canada & the carriers both make the decision on which model the carriers get.

Even if Rogers forwards your message, it will mean nothing sadly to say as they already made up which device they will get from time ago.

Hello nismo_S14

At this moment there is no info about the S4 being in the reservation system. It could be a few days for them to add it. Depending when the carrier & Manufacturer want to release it & such.

I would give it a few days for it to go on the system. Once it does, someone on here will make a thread about it.

We’re happy to confirm that Rogers and Fido will offer the Samsung Galaxy S4, available this spring. We look forward to offering our growing base of Android customers the next generation smartphone from Samsung. More details on pricing and availability will be announced soon.

Strange how rogers plans things without asking us first. Don't limit our options and give us vague release dates when its coming so close to deployment. There will be more competition now. Best to make more effort in keeping your customers. Is there a newsletter that you guys send to tell us when new phones will come out? Anyway you can have us notified when you make up your minds of a release date? Checking your website is not an option. It usually has site issues. I rather be emailed.

Hello cready

Rogers has no say in which device they get. Second no need to ask us. Samsung Canada makes the decision on which device Canada gets. No other Canadian Carrier has release a pre order or info.

Rogers an ounces things via email, Facebook twitter and on their site. I am sure you visit all those. Now I am also sure you can be patient and wait until they announce when it's being released. Again no other Canadian carrier or even American Carrier has release info.

The site barely has any issues, if it does, it's during the night when I gets shut down.

"Rogers has no say in which device they get."

 

There is no way that statement can be true. It makes me think Rogers is holding an empty bowl, begging for more. Say what you want, Meowmix, but I'd have to hear that from a senior Rogers rep before I'd believe something like that.

Hello Alph

First I was talking about the hardware of the device AKA model. Canada and the states never get the better one as we always get the devices with LTE. Also th S3 with Octa core does NOT support LTE thus Samsung Canada and the Canadian carriers will pick the Quad-core with LTE on it. That is what i mean with my statement.

You won't get anything from a senior Rogers rep posting on here. That will never happen. We all have asked for this but it won't happen.

I hound some information on the internet on Samsung Galaxy Pre Order pricing.  This is through web site I was viewing and has nothing to do with Samsung or Rogers as far as I understand.  So I thought I would should you the pricing I've seen so far.

 

Please Note: These prices do not come from Samsung or anything to do with Samsung. Just making this very clear as I found this infomration from a web site on the Internet.

I've been doing a little research on pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and here is what I found.

(1) Samsung i9500 Galaxy S4 64GB (Unlocked) (White Frost)
Pre Order Original Pricing $889.50

(2)Samsung i9500 Galaxy S4 64GB (Unlocked) (Black Mist)
Pre Order Original Pricing $889.50

(3)Samsung i9500 Galaxy S4 32GB (Unlocked) (White Frost)
Pre Order Original Pricing $849.50

(4)Samsung i9500 Galaxy S4 32GB (Unlocked) (Black Mist)
Pre Order Original Pricing $849.50

(5)Samsung i9500 Galaxy S4 16GB (Unlocked) (Black Mist)
Pre Order Original Pricing $798.50

(6)Samsung i9500 Galaxy S4 16GB (Unlocked) (White Frost)
Pre Order Original Pricing $798.50

Since the site allowed me to face book this information to my facebook page I thought I would type it out on Samsungs Page because everyone is asking so many darn questions.

Hello mdennique

No one said Rogers will carry the 64GB model. They may get it but no one knows as info has not come out yet. Also no one can put your name on any list as nothing has been said / announced by Rogers. Once they do, they have a Rogers reservation system. You will need to log into your My Rogers - Overview - Device Reservation. You will find it there ONCE Rogers has announced which model and color they will get. 

 

Please note the prices you posted are NOT the prices Rogers will offer. Those prices are from someone else which will have the device unlocked. This info you gave is useless on here.

 

Also please remove it as it has NOTHING to do with the topic as well.. Even tho the OP is talking about the S4, the info you gave is not what the OP is talking about. Please stay on topic here.

I never said or mentioned anything about Rogers ever carrying a 64GB model of the Samsung Galaxy SIV, Nor did  I state or imply that these are Rogers Costs. I clearly stated that these a pre order of the Samsung SIV phones and that is had nothing to do the Samsung Pricing or Rogers.

 

Everyone one knows or should at least know that all Telecommunication companies have there or set pricing rules and regulations pre set.   This is a known fact.

 

This post clearly states the pricing I found on the internet for pre orders for speciific internal GB memory availability on specific SIV models and colours. It does not state Rogers will carry all ot these ranges or configurations. 

 

For you to state that my information is useless is more than insulting, It just clearly shows what's out ther nothing more. 

 

 

Re: Samsung Galaxy S4 Reservations.

Wooooo,  Im wainting HOPEFULLY I can get my hands on one in April I am using a phone that can only text, and call, like back in the early 2000's  Smiley Frustrated

Re: Samsung Galaxy S4 Reservations.

@mdennique

On the Internet I found pre-order prices around $900, and on the biggest online stores Galaxy S4 pre-orders are sold at $750 - $1400. Maybe mobile carriers will announce some prices for S4 pre-orders.

Just another Galaxy S4 Fan!!!

Hello mdennique

The OP was not talking about prices. Read the OP's post then you will understand. They are asking about the device it self & models. They are also asking about a firm date which has not be released.

Your post is saying about prices outside of Rogers. This is a Rogers forum. They asked about Rogers, not about other sites & what they offer. This is why your post & prices are not needed in here. Also insulting you? Not really, just simply telling you how the site rules are you to follow the OP's post & either answer or help with what the OP is talking about.

Yes your post says its not Rogers prices but that does not matter. Please read the Policy & rules of guides of posting on here. It clearly says when you post, it has to help or near help what the OP is asking / talking about.

The Carriers make their own prices, that is correct. Apple is the only Manufacturer that can have a set outright & contract price. This is because they have agreements with carriers to do this.

Hello ppscslv

Carriers will release more details on prices & dates a few weeks / days before the release the phone. Most likely in a week they will they will go live with the page.

Hello Jlannen

He won't give us a ETA until Rogers head office goes lives with it. Until then, all you will hear is coming soon.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S4 Reservations.

I came across the following link suggesting that the s4 will be launched on April 19th @ $169. Anyone have any more information on whether this has been confirmed? If so, then good for Rogers being one (if not THE) first to launch the s4...

Hello handsomedan

It could be true BUT no one knows until Rogers confirms it when they announce the price and date. Until then, all we can do is guess an listen to the blogs.
