Charged for phone due to migration

AnotherTigger
I've been here awhile

When I migrated from Shaw to Rogers, I asked multiple times if there would be any charges beyond what I'm paying now. I was assured everything would be the same.  Now after the port, I get a $482 bill to buy out my phone. Why am I buying out my phone?  You guys are the same company?

 

After many calls back and forth, I am just getting the run around with no one able to help.  Shaw tells me they can't do anything and that I should speak to Rogers.  Rogers says they don't see a charge and ask me to call Shaw.  This is beyond frustrating and super stressful.  

 

Can anyone help?

Good day, @AnotherTigger !

 

Thanks for joining us here in the Rogers community and for sharing your recent migration experience. I'm saddened to hear that it didn't go quite as planned. 😞

 

I understand that receiving a higher than expected bill can be quite alarming. May I ask, was the bill that included the device buyout amount of $482, from Rogers or from Shaw? If it was indeed from Rogers, we should be able to see the charge at our end. Also, have you tried reaching out directly to our dedicated migration team through our online chat or phone service found here?  They are available 7 days a week, from 12 PM until midnight (ET).

 

If assistance is still required and you'd like for us to have another look into this for you, we'll be happy to do so! Feel free to send us a Private Message @CommunityHelps to get started. 🙂

 

Thank you,

RogersYasmine

Same happened to me.  Everyone I talk about it say they will help only to send me the same bill. They are trying to wear us down into accepting higher paying contracts...

Re: Charged for phone due to migration

Hi @RogersYasmine,

 

Thanks for the welcome.  This seems like a good community. 

 

The bill came from Shaw but Shaw support is saying there's nothing they can do about it.  Everything about the account has been pushed to Rogers.  Shaw suggested Rogers issue a credit and monthly invoicing against the balance. 

 

Rogers is saying there's nothing they can do as the bill is on the Shaw side.  


From my perspective, I hear Shaw and Rogers are one company and working together but I just got hit with a $482 bill. Hopefully you can help.  

Re: Charged for phone due to migration

Hello @AnotherTigger ,

 

Thank you so much for the additional clarification on this matter! 👍

 

Although, we are working to bring MyTab over to Rogers in the future, I'm afraid that this has not yet been implemented. We will let you our customers know when this feature is ready to go.

 

For the time being, when customers decide to move to Rogers Mobile, their Shaw Mobile account gets automatically closed. If there are any MyTab balances owing, they will get automatically charged to the final Shaw bill, along with any remaining service fees. When the final Shaw bill is issued, the amount due can be paid directly to Shaw in the same way that past bills have been paid. We are not able to manually transfer any remaining balances over to Rogers, from Shaw, at this time. I'm so sorry for any disappointment this may cause. 😕

 

**UPDATE**

For any Shaw mobile customers now migrating your services over to Rogers, if you have a Tab balance remaining with Shaw, it will now be automatically transferred to your new Rogers wireless account. For more info and to ensure a smooth transition when migrating, please get in touch with our Rogers Together with Shaw Ambassadors team. You may call in to 1-888-764-3771 and ask to be transferred over to this team, or if you prefer, you may use our online Live Chat feature to get in touch with them here

 

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here in the Community. Please don't forget to conduct a search using keywords, as your question or concern may have already been posted and/or solved by another user. 🙂

 

Kind regards,

RogersYasmine

 

 

Re: Charged for phone due to migration

Hi @RogersYasmine,

This was not explained to me the way you just did.  I was told there would be no charges for this move. When Rogers does implement the MyTab, can I get included retroactively?  This $482 bill is causing a lot of stress and anxiety.

Re: Charged for phone due to migration

Good morning @AnotherTigger,

 

If you were explicitly told there would be no charges whatsoever for this move, then we would need to investigate.

Hi @RogersCorey  and @RogersYasmine,

 

I tried sending a PM but got an error invalid HTML in the message body even though there was no HTML.  Here is the text of a conversation I had with your specialist about there being no costs associated with this migration.

Im on my second bill with Roger and its still not matching what I used to pay with Shaw. They have been saying they will fix it but they are still over charging. This is painfull but I wont pay these fees.

You might want to consider filing a complaint with CCTS then. It might take a while to get sorted but hopefully they will be able to motivate Rogers to honour what you were told.

Hey AnotherTigger and MJCCL, 

 

How did this all turn out for you both? I am going through the exact same thing…… I called to change my address with Shaw and they told me I couldn’t do that until I did the migration, so I did the migration, which took over 10 hours on the phone with 8 different agents. After I was done, I got a bill for $1300 to pay out the my tab balances on my phones and out of those 8 agents, not one of them mentioned that this is what would happen. I filed a complaint with CCTS, but I feel like that will go nowhere as these government agencies are typically a joke. Rather than risk Rogers pushing this to collections,  I feel like I am going to pay the bill. I honestly hate big companies like this that think they can take advantage of their customers. 

 

I would check your first bill that Rogers sent you as well. In my case they tried billing me for the month before I migrated over to Rogers, which I paid already with Shaw. They are doubling charging customers, and I bet many aren’t noticing it.  

 

Hope to hear from you on how your experience all turned out! 

 

Cheers

I've been around

Same thing happened to me. Only I had my phone paid off. Now Shaw no longer exists and Roger’s says speak to Shaw. Well aren’t they Shaw now. Total scam job. Go to freedom.
