Hello XanderLo

It all depends on the account but i doubt u will have a bad surprise. See what happens.

I have seen many will go via the Rogers reservation system but also pre order it via Apple. I will be going via the Rogers reservation system & getting the 128GB Black iPhone 6+

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

I went through rogers.com website and logged in and all, but when I click the Rogers Reservation System link and I type in my same login and password but it says that my login information is incorrect. So I do have an account already and I am eligible for the phone also as i had changed my plan yesterday. I just want to ensure that I hadn't missed anything and will be able to pre-order in the morning.

Hello triplettsang

That is because its still down. It should go back up shortly. I had the same issues this morning & a few weeks ago. Don't Worry 🙂

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

My ipad is showing 44 pages of posts so this may have already been asked. I have a shared promo plan (6gb) with the primary line at $100 and in iPhone 5s. The secondary is a 5 for $55. The Rogers chat person told me that if I upgrade my 5s I have to switch over to the new plans but not if I switch the secondary phone. I thought the plan had to be over $80? If she was correct can I take the 5 in for the upgrade and then go home and switch the sum cards? If not I will pay be tab off and cancel the service. I'm not going to pay an extra $45 a month.

Hello Lisa-67

Yes there is 44 pages of this thread. Even if you cancel the service & go with another carrier, all carriers have the same policy in place sadly.

Yes u will need to change the plan on the second line in order to get the device on Friday at launch. Contact Rogers via Facebook.com/Rogers or call them & see what they can do!

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Hello Meowmix,

 

I remember you helping me out 2 years ago when I had questions about buying my iPhone 5. Good to see you are still helping others. 

I have almost decided to by an iPhone 6 unlocked from Apple so I can keep my old plan. I looked at the Rogers FaceBook site and found this quote:

Rogers Our Share Everything plans include great features like unlimited Canada-wide calling and messaging, voicemail and Call Display – features customers on older plans have to pay extra for. You can also purchase the device outright and activate it on a month-to-month basis on your current plan. - Michael T

 

Can you explain what Micheal means in the bolded text? I thought all I had to do was buy the new iPhone 6 unlocked and move my sim card from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6 and carry on with my current plan. Do I really have to activate it on a month-to-month basis?? What does that really mean?

They told me I only need to change my plan on the line that I'm paying over $100 for.

Hello RangerOne

Yes i do remember you!:).

That means you can buy a unlocked device & bring it to rogers & open a account & get a plan BUT it wont be under contract. Month to month means it has no contract committed to it but you have to pay the same amount each month unless u add something else ontop!.

You CAN buy the phone unlocked via Apple & just swap the sim cards & u will be fine! Do not worry what Micheal said, it does not apply to you or anyone that is doing what u are doing 🙂

Re: Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

I have a 5s with 1 year left on the 2 year contract.  I also have the 6GB data plan which I don't wish to give up.  Will I have to pay the DSRF (device savings recovery fee) if I buy a 6 Plus outright from the Apple store? Or is this only if I am starting a new contract after closing the present one by paying the DSRF and then contracting out the 6 Plus?

 

As long as I still owe Rogers 12 more months of contract, do they care whether I sell my 5s with the 1 year still remaining as long as I continue with them using the new 6 Plus?  Seems to me they shouldn't be bothered by what I do with the 5s which is still under contract as long as I continue paying the balance of the contract until it's over and then I would be free to go anywhere.

 

Or am I confused??Smiley Embarassed

 

Also, should I sell the 5s without the sim card or wipe it and include it with the phone and start afresh?

Hello Lisa-67

That makes no sense seeing as ur plan is over $80. Hmm maybe they are trying to get you to get a new plan. Contact them again & see what they say. Its worth a try,.
