I'm in position 643 for the 6 64gb Gold... I'd be shocked if they get mine in on the launch day. Here's hoping!
Flextab & trade in are different. If you trade in your device during upgrade, the total cost of the phone will be added to the bill that your being charged for the new phone & upgrade. So they will take out lets say $140 from the total bill.
I would suggest doing what you said tho. Its up to you.
Regarding position in line and when you'll get it. It's funny because the iphone 6 64gb line seems to be the most popular one considering some people's high position, yet it's pretty obvious Apple will send Rogers way more than the highest position that I've seen. The only thing that causes doubt is the allocation per store. Some will obviously get tons more than others.
But yeah for instance someone above mentioned they are 600+ for a 64gb gold, apple will obviously give rogers more than that. Just gotta hope not a lotta people chose your store or they get a lot at that specific location lol.
/just a random thought
I am #2 in line for the Plus model, 128GB, in the silver/white and I will be picking it up Friday (19th) morning.
E-mail me if you're interested in purchasing it from me. (cost will be 1079 + tax + 200) and I live in Hamilton, Ontario but I guess I could ship it out too if you want it but are not local.
e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yeah that's true. I feel like They'll cover most at launch or close to it though. From what I'm reading...if you have a 6+ and a high position....those people are going to need some patience.
Lets hope everyone gets theirs on launch for a happy ending 😛
