Hiws it going man? I had a couple questions for you.. I too preordered my phone on the 30th ad was made 22nd position. When you ordered it did you do it over the phone? Also everything I need to check my status I need to call because we don't have access to rogers direct... They keep telling me phones only ship on the 21st.. Lemme know how it worked out for you! Thanks man.

I'm wondering if people can register for pre orders on the walk ins. Im seriously debating just risking it.

Correct me if I am wrong @Meowmix but they do not usually give out walk-ins until all pre-orders have been fulfilled?

I know from past experiences that they have NO stock of new phones right off the bat, usually they tell people come back in a month.

Hello @clr416

There is no list like that. Stores do not take lists for pre orders.

Hello @RAwhite1987

Thats is not correct. They have some stock for the stores for launch. That's how it works for all carriers.

Thats only for high end devices like the iPhone but even then stores have limited stock or none.

@Meowmix The Iphone and Galaxy are what I was referring to unless you consider the Nokia 3310 relaunch a high end phone. It is indestructible but not high end. 

Years ago I wanted to get the S6 right at launch (was not too familiar with pre-ordering at that point) and walked into Rogers. They said they had none and were backordered. 

That is where I got my information. They told me since the phone was brand new to come back in a month when all the hubbub died down.

Hello @RAwhite1987

In some stores yes they do not get stock but some do at launch. I usually go to the location I go to and they have maybe 2-3 on them on launch!

I think it depends on the traffic the store makes and such.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+ Reservation numbers / Questions

I've always been able to go to a store on launch and get my new device. I have had to call around and put it on hold. But I've lucked out. I was thinking about doing that Friday; however, will I lose my gear vr gift?
