Hello @Giroyac

I noticed that as well. Exactly if u have a case on it then it won't matter but some care about the color but it's up to them.

Hello @pixel_xl

Never once did i ever get a silver or white color. Always been black and Jet Black " for the iPhone 7 Plus.". My gf had the silver Note 7 which i liked alot but never got it due to the recall lol. Only had the black Note 7

Re: Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL Reservation Number / Questions

Does anyone know here if Bestbuy mobile is able to create retention deals? Like I've spoken to retentions and have been given a deal and a reference number for the deal, and was told that when I got the pixel in store Rogers would be able to call in and get authorization to give me that price. Can bestbuy do the same thing? I didn't realize how much better their preorder deal is (and in my experience bestbuy seems to get more phones than any one rogers store?)

i would say silver would be a safe colour. smudges does not show up as easily. i had an htc m8 in silver and held up pretty well without a case.

 

just the white antenna lines started to discolour.

think it only works internally within carriers. 

 

dont think third party sellers can have authority to initiate deals like that.

Hello @benbar21

Unfortunately no they can not. Only the call center can. Not even the Rogers stores can. So u would need to call in and have it plan changed before getting the device to the retentions plan u got.

Hello @pixel_xl

That is correct. Unfortunately only the retentions department can do changes like that. Not even a Rogers corporate store can do retentions plans. Sadly he would have to call in and do it before getting the device wherehever he chooses too.

Re: Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL Reservation Number / Questions

I've already called in, and have a interaction number. I've been told by retentions that if I give that interaction number to the Rogers store that they'll be able to then give me the deal. I currently am on a grandfathered in plan; maybe that makes a difference?

But yea retentions told me that I will be able to get the deal I was promised in store so long as I provide the interaction number. I suppose it makes sense however that only Rogers Pluses can do that?
