Yeah that's right. That's the very early phase, they did not know they can also release it on apr 17 as well. By the time I want to pickup my free case offer, they told me they can do the same as Rogers too, but I just told them I already placed my order through Rogers. So regret I did not preoreder there as a backup.
I'm #4 for the Orchid Grey S8+. Business Side. Located in Winnipeg.
Just called in and the phone is IN PROGRESS - ACTIVATION.
It should be shipped today.
So I'll have it tomorrow (launch day) or Monday.
For the first time in a long time, I got a very helpful rep, he informed me because the launch day is tomorrow, they're currently seeing ton's of S8's being activated right now, TONS. Meaning many of us on the business side should start seeing shipping notifications soon.
He also informed me that they're over 311 on the reservation system now so if you're up there on the list, it may take longer until you see your phone.
Lastly, the online portal for reservations on the business side has been having multiple issues as of late, and he suggested if anyone is curious to call in and check on their "in progress" status (to check it it's at activation yet)
So technically, they're definitely improving the system on the business side.
I can't comment on people who are way up in the line.
I'm not sure if business clients who order numerous phones at once are considered 1 queue. (if they are, this would make sense for the wait, as you're actually 30-40 phones behind instead of just the reservation number of say #7)
Meowmix may know the answer to that one.
Yes, correct for the consumer side of thinking. Since I am woking in the similar industry, I always avoid doing these double ordering trick myself because I know that would cause them more workload and confusion and would be unfair to other potential customer.
Glad to hear that! Yea that would make sense though as I know it.
I would say it would be shipped out today as sometimes it takes a day or two to get them ready unless Rogers will do a mass ship out tonight and get it all out unless they wait for tomorrow and Monday!.
Either way it's starting to move.
THE ICE DAM IS THAWING! lol
