Stores are getting phones ahead of the reservation list. That is way reservation list is broken.
You arewiating on 7+ 256GB Matte Black - my store had 2 of these in stock last weekend and anyone could walk in and get it. I wanted same but 128G. They did a store serach and found one in a store in next city (20min away). They held it and I got it last Sat. Then I cancelled my reservation (was at 21) and got depostit back.
Rogers should fullfil reservation list before sending out open stock to stores.
Rogers you have Failed.
but 2 weeks at #2 - i mean come on - that's laughable.
rogers shoudl just own up to how this reservation system works (or doesn't) and be al ittle more transparent.
what is the point of it if they ship some devices for walk ins? did the walk ins provide a $40 deposit? were they ever given the impression that the reservation system was going to give them prefered access to the phone? NOPE.
This is part of the problem - stores should not get them if there are people waiting on a wait list.
I was on wait list from day 1, ended bypassing this by being a 'walkin' to a store that I found had the phone I had orderred (7+ MB 128Gig).
I should not have to run around to find my new phone when it is reserved.
BTW - I am only talking about Rogers not how Apple sells to in many customers. To repeat above, if Apple sends 1000phones to Rogers, and Rogers has 1000 people on the list and has 1000 stores. the 1000 people should be served first - hence the reservation, and stores get 0.
Well then this is the last time I am ever going on the registration system. It's ridiculous and honestly what's the point of it all then if the phones go nilly-willy all over the place? What's the benefit of even being on the reservation system?
