Samsung Galaxy Note 20/Note 20 Ultra Reservations/Questions

Well, been an interesting past 6 months huh? Lol

So, with the Unpacked event happening tomorrow, presumably we will be able to pre-order the Note 20/20 Ultra, who's ordering? I have a Note 10, it's been pretty darn good, but I upgrade yearly anyways so I will order 🙂 Probably in Mystic White if we get that.

I guess I will have to look up the device financing instead of whatever Tab plan I'm on now which I don't think exists anymore.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20/Note 20 Ultra Reservations/Questions

Hey Everyone!

Welcome back to my annual Samsung Reservation thread! Once again Samsung will announce their new Galaxy Note 20 series! Once they do, Rogers will Open up their reservations for the phones! I will do a life update to make sure everyone is up to date!

How you will reserve if you’re an existing customer:
Log in to My Account on Rogers.com
Under Account choose Wireless.
Go to Manage My Device at the bottom of the page.
Click Upgrade My Device.
Choose The new Note 20 / Note 20 Ultra ( which ever model you want) as a “ Pre order”
Pick either Ship To Home or Ship To store (Device Reservation)
Choose a phone from the Phone Model drop-down.
Only phones that can be reserved will appear.


7. Review the account information next to your selection.
The email address must be auto-populated in the right section of the reservation form. Otherwise, you can’t reserve a device.
If the email is not auto-populated, first add the email address in the appropriate field of your My Account profile. Then, log out and log back in.
8. Select a store to pick up your phone.
9. Review the reservation details and click I AGREE to accept the Terms and Conditions.
10. Click Reserve to complete the reservation. A store representative will call you when the device is ready for pick-up.


How to reserve if you’re a new customer
Go to https://www.rogers.com/web/link/DeviceReservation?forwardTo=nrsRegisteredCustomer
Click Sign Up and enter your email address. ( It may tell you to also input all your info again.)
Under Phone Information, choose the device you want to reserve, and click Continue. Only devices available for reservation will appear.
Fill out the form under Personal Details and click Continue.
Fill out the Payment Details for the refundable $40 reservation fee and click Continue.
Select a store for device pick-up and click Continue.
Review the reservation details and click I AGREE to accept the Terms and Conditions.
Click Reserve to complete the reservation. A store representative will call you when the device is ready for pick-up.


Online Statuses
Open - Phone has been reserved
In Progress - Phone is in inventory and the order is being processed
Shipped - Phone is on its way to the chosen store
Cancelled - Reservation has been cancelled


Keeping you up posted along the way
You’ll receive the following confirmations:
An email after completing the reservation
Weekly status emails confirming you number in line on the waiting list
An email when the device has been shipped to the store. (Includes a delivery tracking number)
Phone call from a store representative when the device is ready for pick-up


Good things to know
Phone can only be reserved, not purchased ( The purchase of the device will be done in store)
You can change the pick-up location when the online order status is open. If the order status is in progress or shipped, the location cannot be changed
Shipments typically take up 4 days, and your device is held in store for 3 days ( The delivery can be next day in most cases)
If you don’t pick up your phone within 3 days, the reservation will be cancelled and be sold to a walk in customer. You can make alternate arrangements with the store manager if need be.
Only the account holder or an authorized level 1 user (someone authorized to make changes on the account) can pick up the phone. Photo ID is required when picking up the phone.
If a reservation was made to a location that is now closed, We’ll send the device to the closest Rogers store or authorized dealer in the area. The new store will contact you when the device arrives and is ready for pick up.


Reservation Fee
“What about this $40 reservation fee? Will it be returned to me?” You betcha. You’ll get a credit of $40 (+ taxes) for the reservation fee on your account if you reserved as an existing customer or to the original credit card if you reserved to activate a new line. Your reservation fee will be credited when:
Your phone ships from our warehouse or
You cancel your reservation online.
Before you go to the store to pick up your new phone, why not get a quote for your old phone and trade it in for a credit!


Please keep in mind that if you pick a Rogers Authorized dealership, you may not be able to get the device soon after it ships. This has been the main issue with all the iPhone reservations & most of the other devices which have been on the reservation system. I would suggest you pick a Local Rogers store (Corporate Rogers store or Rogers Plus) to go to get it. When the Rogers warehouse sends it out, the Rogers stores will get them first. Some of the Rogers Authorized dealers have their own warehouse in which the devices will go to. After that there is no tracking until the device ships from that warehouse & goes to the store & they call you. You can also look for your FlexTab aka upgrade fee online via My Rogers or contact Rogers & they will let you know.
.For Corporate / Business customers. You guys will have a different line then regular customers do. This means you guys have a few different statutes then regular customers do. Also keep in mind for the past few years there has been issues / confuses about business customers getting the phones via the reservation. You guys will be getting them the day of launch or after depending on your status & what goes on.


They also started a pre ordering system done online being charged on your CC ( Credit card) imminently and having the device shipped to your home instead. 4 years ago with the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus and last year with the 8 &8+ with the X the ones that picked this way got it the day of launch or day after launch but only a few did. Not everyone. This way is a good way but sadly u do not see any status updates like u do with the reservation system and only get a confirmation email and a shipment email. ( some did not get any email until the unit got shipped with QMS or UPS). Please do remember. Using the SHIP TO HOME option does NOT give u any insight of updates or status. You will only get notified when it ships out.

i now its alot to read at the moment but i am trying to cover all the bases for everyone so everyone knows how the reservation works and what they need to know! as always do not be afraid to ask any question you have as I or any other member will answer it for you. I will do my best and answer all questions

Hello @JeromeM

Hello! It's been a while haha. Unfortunately I am going to sit this one out this year. The pricing for the ultra is almost $90 without the bring it back program. Insane as you can lease a car at this point 😂.

Enjoy it!

My Note 10+ is going to say bye bye in a few weeks. I have pre-ordered the 20 Ultra in Mystic Black. I got the Aura White last year when I pre-ordered it directly from Samsung, sad to see there wasn't an exclusive color this year if we ordered from them.  I liked having a color that no one else really had. My note 9 was black, but the new textured back I think will be better for fingerprint reduction. 

Can't wait to get it! This thread is super dry though... I figured there might be more hype behind this phone or at least people talking about it....

Yeah this is super quiet over here. On Android Central the pre-order thread is crazy! And it's clear they get way more incentives to upgrade than we do in Canada lol

I ordered directly with Samsung this time around, they offered 0% financing so why not use there money to purchase.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 20/Note 20 Ultra Reservations/Questions

JeromeM

@SwordFish99 I could have swore the Rogers Financing is also 0% no? I don't like that there was no 512GB option with Rogers that kinda sucks. I will be curious if WiFi Calling works with the Unlocked device, one of the reasons I keep buying through Rogers as my house has bad reception so it's a required feature.

Hello @JeromeM & @SwordFish99

Rogers and all carriers have a 0%financing. So you would get the same payment plan as you would with Samsung..

I do believe they should work as Rogers is actively adding new devices on the list. However we saw the cluster that happened a few years ago lol.

Hello @jkffghjfghjfghj

Lately the threads in here have been dry as many are not looking at the forums anymore or are on other forums which are bigger and advertise more. The days of having 100+ page threads is gone my friend :(.

I'll be happy to make my annual pilgrimage back to the Rogers community forums for my note pre order posts as I have been doing religiously since I discovered this place back when I got my note 4. In fact all my posts are around late summer/early fall and only discussing that years note phone. Lol. I've had em all since the first one, not stopping now. lol

WOW lucky you!!! That's awesome! Anxious to see about the Wifi Calling capabilities so I know for next time if the unlocked model works (Rogers says no but they are just trying to push their own sales)

 

My status changed to "In Progress"

As is the case with many forums, the mods need to approve photos to avoid spam.  This typically takes a few minutes, or perhaps a couple of hours depending on time of day.  I see that your photos have been approved.

 

Can't wait to get it! This thread is super dry though... I figured there might be more hype behind this phone or at least people talking about it....

Since "everyone" has a smart phone, the latest is no longer an event like it may have once been.

And the Buds Live came with it. That's the way to fulfill a promotion deal! Back then I had to chase Samsung to get my bonus gift (Gear Fit 2 for Note7 => RIP both devices}.
