Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL Pre-Orders & Reservations

Does Rogers usually do pre-orders for Pixel devices? I know usually Samsung and Apple but wasn't sure on Pixel.  Looks like it will be available on Nov 1st in Canada and I want to make sure to have WiFi Calling so would rather order from Rogers.

 

Thanks,

Jerome

FWIW, I was in the same boat with my Pixel 2,ultimately at the end I purchased directly from Google (i really didn't want a black or white phone).
so I've been using Wi-Fi Calling, VoLTE, and all the other goodies on my non Rogers device just fine. Given the software nature of Pixel devices, I would assume the Pixel 3, once released and supported by Rogers, Wi-Fi Calling will be available to non Rogers bought devices too

Managed to pre-order a Pixel XL 128GB in Clearly White, kept my same plan (Premium Tab $120/month for 10GB and unlimited Canada wide) so it was $759+tax.

Chose the ship to home option, first time not going to pickup a preorder at a store not sure how I will like not seeing any pre-order queue or get any notifications until the day before or day of availability.

I pre ordered the Pixel3 XL black to be picked up in store. Says I'm 23rd in place. I was just curious the 40$ reservation cost does that come off the cost of the phone which was 229$? I'm doing an upgrade.

@qa6 I just looked at my bill from Sept 2017 when I had pre-ordered the Note 8 using ship to store and I see a $40 credit on my bill refunding the reservation fee after I picked it up.

Oh yes you are correct, when I pre-ordered my pixel2 last year I was credited.

I did the same (ship home), and now I understand why I have not received anything beside an email thanking me for my order (and the amount paid) and that I will receive a tracking number when the device has shipped.

 

All seems correct?

Hello @jefflessard

All ship to home orders only get a thanking u for the order. The next email will be the shipment email with the tracking number!

Only ship to store orders have a status and Que number.

@Meowmix

You are alive! I guess not a lot of pre-order activity for this device which is surprising, like the ole Blackberry Preorder days lol

Pre-Order & Device Balance (Pixel 3XL)

 

Hi,

 

I want to pre-order the Pixel 3 XL ASAP to benefit from the free Google Pixel Stand including with each pre-order.

I currently have a device balance (62.50$)

 

If I preorder the phone now and choose to pay right now to get it faster, Rogers asks me to pay the full device balance as of today, 12th october. Even if I might even get the device in 3-4 weeks from now.

 

Will I get credited the difference between the device balance I paid upfront today and the remaining balance I would have when I actually get the device in 3-4 weeks? I mean, it's kinda shady to make me pay the full amount of my device balance when I just make a preorder on a phone that isn't released yet. Is there any way to avoid that?

Thanks.
