Unable to Use Cell Phone Data Service

I have no internet on my cell phone.  I restarted my phone twice, and still nothing.  I pay a lot of money to get what i need from my phone, and now I can't do anything, and i work from my phone.  Is there anyone else having this issue?  I am in Winnipeg, Mb.

 

Please help.

Re: Unable to Use Cell Phone Data Service

I have the same problem, in Gatineau, QC... Tech support wait time = 2 hours on the phone... looks like a generalized problem.

Re: Unable to Use Cell Phone Data Service

I am unable to Use the cell phone Internet data on the new iPhone XR after switching from a no-data plan to a new plan with data included. This problem persists for more than 2 weeks (!) already. Had numerous conversations with customer service representatives, four sessions with technical support, and chats with supervisors. Had three tickets that had been just closed by Rogers quietly and without asking if the problem remained. Tried various tools and approaches, like resetting network settings several times, resetting the phone to factory settings at least twice, turning cellular data on and off, turning Airplane mode on and off, etc, etc, etc.

 

It is a brand new phone (already a second one, as there was the SAME issue with the previous XR phone) and a third sim card attached to the same cell number already. The technical experts keep insisting that there is no problem and no blocks on the network side, and "everything works fine". But in reality, nothing works. There is a brand new phone with no access to internet data (if outside a  wifi network) still.

 

The Rogers team wasn't calling back to suggest a solution, never. Once in a while, there was one robotic call (!) to inform me that they checked the network, it works fine, so "thank you for contacting us, goodbye".  Within more than 2 weeks there is no solution provided, no alternative offered.  The only suggested  "solution" was to return the second iPhone XR but nothing about how the internet connection would be provided afterward. 

 

The Custome Service representatives keep insisting that I will have to pay for the services (internet data, in this particular case) as the services "have been provided". In reality, the internet data services were "promised" but never provided to me. It is endless trouble.  I do not understand why Rogers is treating its customers in a such disgusting way. Frustration and discomfort. No solution.

Re: Unable to Use Cell Phone Data Service

Good evening @sk26,

 

Welcome to the Rogers Community! I hope you're doing well and staying safe.

 

Thank you so much for your detailed account of events. I can only imagine how frustrating this could be for the user of your second line. I did go over the troubleshooting steps you've described above and without having access to your account, I can only think of one cause for this issue. 

 

Did you previously have a shared plan with a Data Manager set up? Could it be that the Data Manager is restricting the usage on the second line?

 

I know you mentioned recently having changed the plan on the secondary line but would you mind popping in to your MyRogers account to see if there is anything enabled under "Data Manager"? If your primary line is outlined maybe try to turn it off or change it for the other number, just so we could rule that out. To be fair, this is pure speculations but it's worth a shot at this point.

 

Additionally, get in touch with us via private message so we can see how things are set up on your account and investigate further. We most definitely want to help you resolve this as soon as possible!

 

Please send your PM at @CommunityHelps. You can find details about our private messaging in this blog.
