Once again its the time of the year that Samsung will be announcing their new Note line up. I am happy to announce that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be announced tomorrow! As for the specs, They are rumored to be AMOLED 6'3 inch, Dual back cameraCamera, 3,000mAh battery, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with the ability to expect memory via a microSD card slot and more! As for colors, its been leaked out Midnight Black, Maple Gold, Orchid Grey, Deep Sea Blue (it’s likely that only a few of these will be available in Canada). As for when Rogers will be putting it live, it most likely will be tomorrow or the following days after, I will update this thread with more info to come!
1). Once Rogers has announce when they will add the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to the reservation list & the day comes, sign into your My Rogers account - Product & Services – Wireless & you will see a Red wording saying “Device Reservation" on the main page. Click that & it will take you to the page. Once there you will need to pick which device you want; Samsung Note 8 Black and what other colors they may release it on. You also need to pick the store you want it to go too. Just to make it clear, reservations are for current Rogers wireless customers which have contracts with them. Rogers will put up the Pre order list for people that want to pre order the phone which have no wireless accounts with Rogers. Also just too add below is the meaning of the statues .
- If your status is "OPEN", your reservation has been made and we are awaiting product from our supplier. At this time you can change your pick-up location, contact email address or cancel your reservation.
- If your status is "CANCELLED", your reservation has been cancelled and your reservation fee will be credited back to your account.
- If your status is "IN PROGRESS", we have begun the shipment process and you will not be able to edit or cancel your reservation any longer. The next email you will get will be the one that confirms shipment to the store you chose.
- If your status is "SHIPPED", your device has left our warehouse and is on its way to the store you chose. Keep in mind that you can NOT reserve a device via calling them. It can ONLY happen if the reservation system is down but they will to reserve it via online. Plus if you reserve it via phone, you will NOT see your status or know what number you are VS reserving it online.
2). 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.
3). Also remember you are going to have to put down a $40 fee to reserve the device. Once it ships out, the $40 fee will be reversed back into your account. IF you want to cancel your reservation, that $40 will also be credit back to you. So either way you will get that $40 back. Also remember you may NOT be the first to get the phone if you have a high number or a low one. The Reservation system is made to have a device reserved for you as the stores will be sold out. If your reservation status still says “ OPEN” after launch & a store has a device in stock, you can still go in the store & get it. Then come back home & cancel the reservation online. If the status is “ IN PROGRESS” & you get a device via a store that have one for u, you have to wait until it ships out & then tell the store that u picked u do not want it. Do reemember the reservation number is CANADA - WIDE. This means if lets say you are #45 in line for the black one, you are #45 for that GB , color & model Canada wide. Also keep in mine you have to be the account holder in order to pick up the device at the store. No one else can. You can try adding a family member as Level on the account but some stores will decline it.

4) .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.
5). They also started last year a pre ordering system done online being charged on your CC ( Credit card) imminently and having the device shipped to your home instead. Last year with the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus 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)
Let's make this thread the only thread for the Note 8 please and if you guys have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me and I'll gladly be able to help!
It's true that the carriers announced the early release for pre-orders, but that link you added there is to a constantly updated page. The early release was not announced when pre-orders opened, but about a week later.
I didn't say anything about Rogers being the only one to release the phones early, nor did I suggest that they did so or would do so without Samsung Canada's explicit permission. All I said was that Rogers released them early... which they did.
Given that we're still about a week and a half away from the official release date, I think it's fair to let people who didn't experience the S8 release know that Rogers (and Samsung Canada) have released a phone early in the recent past. In fact, it was their most recent flagship launch.
Rogers may still announce an early release for the Note 8, but more importantly, we are still waiting on what sort of benefit Samsung Canada will be giving Note 7 owners. Australians were informed over the weekend that they would get $250 off the cost for former Note 7 owners. Let's hope we here something soon.
How would previous owners be able to prove they owned the Note 7?
I can understand if you stayed within the same carrier and they can look it up somehow I am sure, but what if you have moved carriers? (not me, I have been with Rogers forever) I'm sure there is more than one person who had a Note 7 with Bell let's say, and is now with Rogers a year later...
Samsung Canada Live Chat just told me that they will have an offer for Canadians whom preordered the note 7, and note 8. And that details should be announced shortly! 😄 WOOOOOOOOOOOO
Lol, this is epic.
I spoke with them last week and they told me we get nothing, and the week prior they said it cannot be confirmed weather or not we will have a discount.....
I feel like they are slowly turning into a subsidiary of Apple inc 😮
looks like it's already had it's first price drop.... it was 1325 when i did the preorder, now it's 1299 no term. Not huge, but I read that Best Buy in the US dropped 150 bucks so I thought I'd check it out.
You can use code 15%OFF to save another $150. Hard to say if they are legit resellers, they are not listed on the Samsung site as Authorized and online reviews are mixed. Maybe send Samsung a message on facebook or twitter and see what they say.
