Of course they are doing this while all the Snowbirds and winter travelers are out of country! Anyone surprised?
Following is Rogers Email…..
|Since the launch of Rogers One Number, we have introduced a number of wireless innovations that help Canadians stay connected in more ways than ever – like our Share EverythingTM plans with unlimited Canada-wide calling and Wi‑Fi Calling that allows you to call and text in more places with a compatible device.|
|Rogers One Number will no longer be available after January 31st, 2017. As of this date any Rogers One Number Call Control rules such as Do Not Disturb, Forward My Calls, Ring My Numbers and Blocked Numbers that you may be using will no longer exist. Forward My Calls (Call Forwarding) is available as a part of Rogers Share Everything plans, however you will have to set up this feature again, if desired. Use the call settings menu in your mobile device or visit here for additional details on setting up Call Forwarding. No action is required if you do not have Forward My Calls set up.|
UPDATE – January 24th.
I contacted Rogers to find out if i needed to turn phone on (currently in Airplane mode) to activate call forwarding once One Number discontinued. Was told by agent “On Janaury (sic) 31st simply contact us and we can’t do the call forwarding from here, you won’t need to turn your phone on”
