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.

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$? I'm doing an upgrade.
I did the same (ship home), and now I understand why I have not received anything beside an email thanking me for my order (and the amount paid) and that I will receive a tracking number when the device has shipped.
All seems correct?
All ship to home orders only get a thanking u for the order. The next email will be the shipment email with the tracking number!
Only ship to store orders have a status and Que number.
I want to pre-order the Pixel 3 XL ASAP to benefit from the free Google Pixel Stand including with each pre-order.
I currently have a device balance (62.50$)
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?
