Roger's rep are getting lippy since lots of people are calling in to fight for activation fees because of this insane deal.

One thing is for sure...if you got charged activation for opening up the $75 phone plan because your were not an existing rogers customer and you canceled right away ... they should credit back the activation on the "phone plan" since you didn't take any phone from them on that phone plan (which is truly "Buyers Remorse"). as for the activation on the watch....it's all luck and at the mercy of the rep you talk to....btw... They are documenting the interaction when you call in to fight the activation fee..I called 3 times and "every time" the agent made notes to my closed account about me asking to waive the activation fees.

Here is the article explaining in detail what covers under this Mobile Service Trial Period

Pay special attention to section "V" paragraph "B".
Hmm. Thanks for the insight! My case was a little special now that I think of it.

I was able to activate on a $30 talk and text plan, and also paid the retail price in store rather than having it on the final bill. I guess that’s why I qualified for buyers remorse on both.

I mean no disrespect when I quoted you, I just heard it so many times on this board and people makes it sound like it's a given because they are protected by that CRTC clause. In reality it's pure luck if you get the activation fee waived on the watches and you are completely at he mercy of the rep.

Would like to know how trade-in would work between two people exchanging the watch?
Aren't the device serial number tagged to your new line in your Rogers account?

Will one be able to activate cellular option on another apple watch with different serial number, if you decide to do so after a while?

When I received my watch at Best Buy, the only thing the Rogers rep did was add a new line to my account. (They might have special assignment to lines meant for a watch?), When I got home I paired the watch to my phone. Through the watch app, I was brought to the rogers site where I linked the new number to the watch. So my guess is that as long as the watch has not been previously paired, you should be fine.

I remember BestBuy Rep scanned a bardcode from the watch box which is most likely IMEI / Serial of the device which is updated in your Rogers account.

I am very doubtful about doing an exchange with someone and then trying to activate the watch with different IMEI number to the watch wireless line in my account.

Once you cancel, nothing is tagged to your account.

And you activate the watch through your mobile app, all watches are unlocked. So you could even activate it with a different provider, which I confirmed when I cancelled my watches.

That actually makes sense.

So, while exchanging watches, we must exchange proof that the line has actually been cancelled.

Now, anyone willing to exchange my Gold 44mm with Black/Grey 44mm in an unopened box?

I can meetup in Brampton(weekend) / Vaughan (during the weekday).

Probably best to show the initial contract(which Shows the last few digits of your account number as well as information to show the Apple Watch you get/trade is from the Rogers deal and login to your actual account to show no Apple Watch lines and verify the last few digits of account number)

Didn’t get email confirming anything
How did you say that you wanted to cancel so that they gave you 24 months of free service?

Did you buy the watch outright?
I put it on financing to be able to enjoy the 3 free months, but if I cannot get the activation fees waived it’s as if I paid $35 for the 3 months. Then there is no point.

If I need to buy out the Watch to have the fees waived, I will certainly do it but then I could not try the service for free for 3 months, unless they offer it.

I didn't buy the watch but I'm a smartwatch plan subscriber and I'm trying to find out how to get the 24 months free. I've put in a cancellation order for my watch plan and asked their retention department via live chat about the 24 month free offer but they said there is no such offer. Was there a code attached to the 24 mo. offer?

did anyone were able to get a Trade-in credit with the watch?

on the website, it states "get a minimum of 100$ trade-in credit and purchase a watch on edge financing with a smart plan"

iPhone 5s TIV is 25$ , we should technically get 100$ ( I paid 50$ on Kijiji few months ago to upgrade my phone)

I just called Rogers and got a nice rep. I just said what you said, but she asked me why I wanted to cancel and also said I didn't need the service.
She said that since I am on financing, they cannot waive the activation fees if I cancel the line. She told me that in order to cancel the fees, I would have to stay for 24 months but as an incentive she would add $10 credit for the data, so free for 24 months.
So I would just pay the $12.08 + HST every month for the financing.
I am happy.

wow great.

I did a chat, I asked for cancellation and that activation fees be credited. They will credit once the charge of 35$ appears on my next bill. no offers of free 24 months
