Hey Rogers!

 

Samsung's latest rendition of it's Note Series, the Note 3, is rumored to be release September 4th.  When will us lonely Canadians get it?

Hello everyone


Note 3 drop test done by Android Authority. It seems the Glass gets spider cracks when it falls face first and then bottom scratches up when falling button first. The device stayed in one piece tho.

Hello charlo1108


No one has that info sadly. The only way to find out is by calling the business support line but I doubt they will say anything really. It may go up sometime this week or at launch.

No, the business line knows less then me as sad as that is.. They don't even know that its available for reservation on the consumer side and refuse to believe me when I tell them it is because "they haven't been told that"

Will it take as long to get the Note 3 through business reservation as it has been for the 5s?

Hello charlo1108


Oh wow. It seems the business reps don't really think anything is true. Sadly forward them to the Rogers.ca site as they will see it. Same with the Rogers Redboard site.


I really doubt it. Business reservations for none really high end times will take less

LOL I tried even spelling out the link for them to the consumer reservations site and walking them through each step and they STILL said "No, I don't see that, no one can reserve it".. its just so frustrating.. its like telling someone "Look there is a sun in the sky, see that bright shining object?" And they just look away and say "no there is no such thing"

Honestly what I would have done is ask for a manager, if the manager refuses / says they can not see it ask them to write it down on a note, get the interactions number and contact the office of the president and make a complaint. It seems the reps are more lazy and want to lie because they rather you get something else or don't have answer

I tried to ask for a manager and thats when they kept me on hold for over 20 mins before I had to hang up so it looks like their plan worked to try to just get rid of me.. honestly, its sooo frustrating, I've never had another retail company that made me see red as much as Rogers.. its like no matter what you do, you can't win

Hello carlo1108


I always just swear while I am on hold and hang up, call back and make a complain about the last rep and start all over again lol.

Ugh, I'm 233rd in line! I'm really hoping they have enough Note 3 so I still get it on Friday. I sold my S4 and am using my old BB Torch in the meantime!! Haha. It's horrible.

Hello king_tut


I am #6 for the Jet Black. I am sure they will have enough. I am trading in my iPhone 5 32GB to Rogers for a $310 credit on my account. That will take away my Flextab fee to upgrade LOL

DId you had white version before? I always have black or obscure colors before but I decided to go white this time for the note 3.
Could I know why u went black?

Hello dral29


I never had a note before. So first time Note user here. I don't like white phones. Always thought they were girly lol. I always had black or silver / gray.

Re: Samsung Note 3?

Same here.  I had the Black S4, and had the black Note 2 before that.  I'm not a huge fan of white as well.  Especially with a phone the size of the Note 3.  I mainly don't like the contrast of the screen to the white bezel.... the screen pops more, IMO, with a black bezel.

Hello king_tut


Exactly! The black screen on a white phone / bezel makes it look weird for me. Mainly I rather get a Black one instead.

Does it seem weird that no where is there real pricing on the note 3 or anything really being said about the galaxy gear coming or not coming to Rogers. They announced the iPhone and changed there whole website to reflect it but notta zilch zero on the new galaxy note 3 with the galaxy gear.
I have a note 3 on reservation but I want the galaxy gear deal, but if rogers is not going to have it then will have to go elsewhere and try to get it like best buy, does not give much time to try to get one Friday or on a reservation list

Hello GCT

Same can be said about Telus, Bell, Virgin, Wind. The only one that has put something is Telus which says "COMING SOON".


From leaks out there, Samsung Canada is telling carriers not to release any info or page yet. It seems that they will allow you to pre order and reserve but nothing else.

My guess is that it will be put up tomorrow or Tuesday. Friday Oct 4th is supposed to be the launch day for all carriers and Samsung Canada said this 2 weeks ago.

Apple pays the carriers and have deals with them to do this adversing on the websites. Same goes with Samsung. Apple told all carriers to put up the same page. All Canadian carriers did at the same time. The manufacturers control it, not the carriers

From what I am thinking. Samsung Canada wants to make it different and what I am think is that they want to have us pre order the Note 3, but as a bonus we get the Galaxy year for a cheaper price?. It could be. Remember all Samsung products were advertised from the announcements. This one tho Samsung Canada is keeping the lips tight about prices and carriers posting anything with the acception of Telus with the " COMING SOON" page which states nothing.

Thanks for the reply Meowmix. Yah I am hoping that something will give in the next couple days. It just seemed weird that Samsung is keeping it under wraps. I was concerned of how we had to preorder the note 3 but it does not give much time to reserve a galaxy gear watch if that is what they do, or possibly might not be able to get one right away or something, not sure what to think. Hopefully something will come out tomorrow explaining it, I know best buy is offering buying them together but no other info is given on the website Says see store wonder if anyone has actually talked to them and see how they are doing it
