Seeing as Apple already announced the new iPhone which is called iPhone 5, this thread will be where you need to post questions & even your reservation numbers once Rogers announces it & puts it up. Please do not make another thread about reservation & all. I would like to keep it as one thread & clean..
Now all we need to do is wait for Rogers to announce when they will add the iPhone 5 to the resevation list & once its done, sign into your My Rogers account - Overview & you will see a Red wording saying " Device Reservation". Click that & it will take you to the page. Once there you will need to pick which device you want "16GB,32GB,64GB" & you just need to pick the store you want it to go too.
Also remember you are going to have to put down a $40 fee but once the device gets shipped, they will credit the fee back to you. Also remember you will not be the first to get the phone if you have a high number or a low one. The reservation list is made so they keep a phone in your name & you go pick it up once the store gets it.
This is something Rogers can not change unless they do. The prices are going to be the same $199 for the 16GB, $299 for the 32GB & $399 for the 64GB version. Like i said those prices MAY change from Rogers but those are the prices Apple said they will be.
Also the prices for the new iPhone 5 outright price will be as followed:
iPhone 5 16GB : $699
iPhone 5 32GB: $799
iPhone 5 64GB: $899
Also remember please post anything related about iPhone 5 in here please.
EDIT* Rogers has posted a tweet that it will be avialble for the reservation system on Friday 14th.
To everyone who got their early upgrade fees removed:
My 3 year contact started on November 2010 so I have a year+ left on my account and was told that I would have to pay $182 for hardware upgrade in addition to the price of the phone itself. By "early upgrade fee," are you guys referring to the early hardware upgrade fee?
If so, how did you guys get the fees removed? What was the apple and roger deal? I would love to have this removed or reduced if at all possible. I'm wondering how I should go about doing so and speak with which department...
btw I was 296 on white 16gb and it also says in progress 🙂
I just called *611 and the automated message said $229 (+$10 fee) to upgrade to the 16GB. I signed up for a 3-yr contract a little over 2 years ago when I got the iPhone 4. It said $229 (+$0 fee) for my wife who got her iPhone 3GS and 3-yr contract almost 3 years ago. Is that what other people are getting?
How do I know if I'm getting the $50 rebate?
BTW, we were #20 & #37 and now are "in progress".
It sounds like you might be using Internet explore 9. This is a common issue with IE9. Try with another browser and you will likely have no issue submitting this. If issues persists try contacting rogers.com support by chat via the contact us section on rogers.com
Just went to check if my position on the waitlist had changed and my status has changed to "In Progress". Says they will be sending me an email with the shipping details soon. My hopes off recieving my phone on or near launch day just went up!
If you are still getting an error when you try to reserve your phone and it says that you may not be eligible, here is what I just did that fixed the issue:
1. Removed my wireless account number in MyRogers
2. Signed up for a new MyRogers account with a different email address
3. Added my wireless account number to this new MyRogers account
4. Reserved my iphone and voila - everything worked perfectly
Only 36 hours of attempts before I figured this out.
Hope it works for anyone else still having an access problem.
Here's a question
I am no longer locked into a contract and I have been with Rogers for 10+ years. I've spoken to 2 different customer retention reps now and they have both told me that they can't offer me any rebates or incentives for signing on to another 3 year plan with Rogers on the iphone 5.
It seems a little unfair that Rogers is willing to wave anywhere from $5-$300 off accounts that would have had to pay an early upgrade fee but for someone who is free to walk away without having to pay anything at all - they won't give any incentive to.
Any suggestions on how I can work around this?
