I was told today the end of May. I am holding out hope sooner or later. This cannot be so difficult. All I want to do is use their cellular line. I have the bloody watch and want to add to my service. What is the darn problem??? This is just plain stupid.
Neither Rogers nor Shaw offer Apple Watch connectivity at all. Simply not available on their networks no matter what account.
Tell me about it. On top of all that the consumer plan is double that of Bell. Telus wants $10 a month vs. the $5 Bell is charging. I will seriously switch if the corporate rate is $10/month. If it really is $10/month what was the point of all this waiting? What would the benefit of being a Telus corporate customer?
Let's see if Telus actually gives us something worthwhile to stay loyal.
That will be the icing on the cake for this Apple Watch fiasco at Telus.
Us: So um you want $10 a month and a $30 connection fee? But you made us corporate customers wait since Dec for this service your regular customers had since Dec?
Telus: Yeah but think of all the money you saved by waiting for our exciting new corporate plan! We think outside the box here at Telus!
Us: ... Hello, Bell? I'd like to switch
Well that's disappointing if that's the rate plan. I did a chat with a Telus rep on the the Telus site and he was thinking mid-June... but he really had no clue. Also no clue on the rate plan.
Telus CSR: Okay so we're getting a lot of calls and inquiries about the Apple Watch for corporate customers. What can we tell them?
Telus Management: Nothing - still working on it.
Telus CSR: But it's been like 6 months of questions about when and how much - are we really going to charge $10 a month when Bell is charging $5?
Telus Management: Hey that's a secret - keep that to yourselves! Besides, we are so top heavy with layers of inept management that we need to charge more to pay for their wages.
Telus CSR: Oh good, so we may get raises?
Telus Management: Hah! Good one lowly worker. Just keep beating back the angry hordes and be happy you're employed. Remember, you don't know anything even though it's your job to know something. Get it? Got it? Good!
Wow I really hope that true. So sad owning an Apple Watch that’s capable of using LTE but having no line from your provider. Do you really think your account rep knows what he’s talking about when he said Monday May 28?
Yea he's been really reliable in the past so I'm confident he's got good info. He'll be calling me to add it on Monday when he has the rest of the details.
I was unable to confirm the option for next monday with the business customer service.. BUT..its seems they already have the formation on business side..so i would bet less than 2 weeks..i've been told last time i phone before the end of the semester so before june 30..Hope it's true for monday keep in touch..
It's rather ridiculous that if they are in fact going to begin offering Apple Watch LTE support on the 28th, you would think they would start letting customers know. Being in the dark over timelines and rate plans is rather annoying. We shall see what happens on Monday. I imagine there may be a carrier update on my phone associated with this?
