Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X on Rogers?

Are we getting these on Rogers? Wanted to use my upgrade but it seems Google has decided to sell them only on Google Store. Any information here from experts?

Hello @bboyshark

Log into My Rogers - Products And Services - Device Reservation. Fill out the information including the store u want to pickup at. Remember there is a $40 reservation fee which will be credited back to you once the reservation has been shipped or canceled.

Hello @GibMcFragger

While many don't understand it, I do. The carriers including the manufacturers put limits and restrictions on how many and which units carriers get. Rogers isn't the only one that is doing this. U are welcome to buy the phone outright from Google if u like bigger GB but Rogers won't carry the higher models and i doubt any Canadian carrier will carry it.

Because I have around 54GB of music on my phone. I don't really see the point of chewing up data to stream it from the cloud. Storage is cheap.

As for the 32GB phones, they generally only have around 27GB of actual space once you take into account the OS and uninstallable bloatware apps. 🙂

Yet they do have control over what they buy and resell to us. They are not told by Google or apple what to buy and resell.

Hello @garythevans

Incorrect. All carriers are told which model they can release on their network and for how much and how many units they receive. Apple controls the stock, pricing, launch dates and all. Same with Google and the Nexus line.

Wrong. But nice try though. Manufaturers control the pricing and the launch dates but not the stock.

Hello @garythevans

Think what you want but i did work for one of the manufacturers and i can assure you that I'm Right ;). Also carriers don't build, ship or manufacturer the devices. I can show u a few things proving that I am correct but I'll let u think what u want 🙂

 

At the end of the day, carriers only get whatever the manufactures give them. Rogers is a carrier & not a manufacturer. They do not build, Supply or request a huge amount of stock.

Mobilesyrup says that Rogers is only offering the 32gb version.

 

What is with Rogers incessant love with only offering 32gb Android phones? They did it with the Note 5. Now it looks like the Nexus 6P will only be offered in that size. Without expandable memory, 32gigs is nowhere near sufficient.

 

Why is it that we'll be able to order the 64 and 128 gig versions direct from Google or Huawai, but not through Rogers?

Hi RogersDarrell,

 

Will Nexus 5X and 6P models purchased from Rogers have to rely on Rogers for future software updates, or will they get OTA updates directly from Google at the same time as 5X & 6P devices purchased directly from Google?

Hello @constable145

It seems like Rogers and the manufacturers have decided that a 64GB isn't need as there is cloud space or something else in the agreement we cat see.

Subject says it all.

 

If I order a Nexus 6P from Rogers (instead of Google), will the phone be unlocked (SIM and O/S updates)?

 

Thanks

Hello @wstrange

Yes it will be. All Nexus devices sold within carriers will be factory unlocked.

Any word on when Rogers will be able to ship the 6P ?

 

I made my reservation over a week ago and the reservation page shows that I am 9th in line to get it but there is still no ETA as to when we can reasonably expect it.

Hello @chaotik

The date should be released soon. Sadly there is no word as of when it will be.

Any word yet if Rogers will carry the Nexus 5X?  And if so, when will we be able to put in a reservation for it?


I noticed Wind has it listed as "Coming Soon"

I was in 9th place (reserved on Oct 3rd) and today it is showing that I am in 6th.

Weird. I guess 3 people in front of me dropped out which means the likelihood of people dropping out in front of you is very high.

Sooooo is it actually the 2nd? Cause I literally bought the Note 5 after being told that we WEREN'T getting the 6p. If it's being released in 2 weeks, I would've gladly waited.
