Have you made any attempt to communicate to Best Buy that the Samsung Gear VR will NOT work for any Rogers customer with a Note 5 on Dec 11th? It seems like this could create a lot of headaches for both customer service teams since expectations are definately being set.
FWIW, I'm just a little annoyed because I bought the 16GB Note 5 from Rogers and a Samsung Gear VR from the US and expected it to work. Now I am twiddling my thumbs waiting for a software update and the 64GB Note 5 is now the same price as what I paid for the 16GB one! At the very least, I expected that the Note 5 would work on the day that the Gear VR is released in Canada (most US carriers pushed the update well in advance of the launch there.) Instead, I will have to wait for the update until a while later.
Every major provider in the States was able to release the update before the gear VR released, makes no sense why Rogers can't do the same. Now due to Rogers incompetence all Note 5 users are going to be stuck with a $140 paper weight for a few days.
Thanks Roger! How soon?
Not to be a Grinch, but I don't beleive a reasonable amount of time would alot to more than 1 or 2 days. Is this too much longer or do you know? I want to have faith in my serivce provider (Rogers) but I'm sure others (like me) will jump ship if they aren't keeping their customers in mind.
Darn it..... my Gear VR shipped today. I can't find anything from Rogers. The guy responding to messages on Facebook didn't even know what Gear VR was. I'm crossing my fingers that it will work, but not holding my breath!
