I’m a new Rogers customer as of July 21st. The only reason I ordered wireless home phone is because I could not port my old number to Ignite home phone. The call quality being unacceptably noisy on the receiver’s end no matter who I called although my adapter was placed near a window and showing a strong signal forced me to cancel wireless home phone and order Ignite home phone instead. I was expecting a new Ignite phone adapter within a few days but it still hasn’t been shipped to me to this day, August 6th.

I contacted a Rogers agent to chat with and was told that my Ignite phone adapter would not ship to me until my wireless phone adapter would be returned. Of course I’ve already been billed for the first month of wireless phone service and when I asked about charge cancellation I was told that this would take place once the wireless phone adapter would be sent back. I just read that charge cancellations can take up tp 4 weeks and my first bill is due August 10th. if I remember correctly. I have no intentions on paying this first bill since as far as I’m concerned the 4 week Rogers delay in fee cancellation shouldn’t be my problem especially when I reported the unsatisfactory wireless phone service. I find that Rogers could improve on their policies and aim higher at new customer satisfaction! Can someone shed some light on this and help me out?

Hello @canacura!

 

First off, thank you for taking a chance on Rogers, we truly appreciate your business! 🙂

 

I am disappointed to hear that the onboarding of your wireless home phone service didn't go as well as planned but I am glad to hear that we are moving you over to our Ignite Home Phone for a much better experience. Once hooked up, I'm sure things will be much smoother for you. 

 

In reference to your billing concerns, I would recommend reaching out once the return of the wireless home phone unit has been processed to ensure that you are credited partially for the wireless home phone services. It is true that it may take some time for the partial adjustments to go through and they would appear on the bill that follows. Unfortunately, we do not have a way to process the adjustments in advance since it is automatically done through the system once the return is compete. 

 

If you decide to deduct the cost for the wireless home phone charges from your invoice when making your payment, you may receive a system generated late payment fee for the missing portion on the next invoice that arrives. We always recommend paying your balance in full and then waiting for any expected credits to appear on your future invoices to avoid a late payment fee being applied in advertently. It just saves you the headache of having to call in and dispute any late payment charges.

 

I hope this helps answer your concerns!

I've Been Here Awhile

I signed up for a 2 year contract with rogers after 15years with them with a new phone, first time I used a rogers phone and contract and when my s20 ultras phone won't zoom they want me to send in and wait for it with no loaner phone. This is not what I signed up for and after many times asking for a supervisor I was brushed off. I am now leaving rogers for good and my kids on my plan as well. They won't honor my contract which states I have device protection for one year. The supervisor is too busy to call me and I'm tired of the run around. Don't trust rogers as they are scamers and will not honor contract. I am done for good. See ya rogers it's been great until I signed up for contract that ypu will not honour

Hello, @Bosshoss46.

 

Thank you for sharing your device troubles, and welcome to Rogers Community Forums!

 

Based on your comments, it seems you are talking about the manufacturer's one-year warranty. Have you reached out to the manufacturer to see if they can repair your phone while you wait?  You can call or chat with support at https://www.samsung.com/ca/support/warranty/ to have your device fixed. 

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin
