First of all a company large enough to pay $3000 a month for a phone plan isn't going to give a care if their employees get an iPhone 6 on launch day so they really have nothing to worry about. Secondly I'm out of contract on all my services except smart home monitoring right now, you can bet your bottom dollar I will be moving over to a company that might give me a better deal as a new customer with what I can bring to the table. If I'm not going to get the phone I want with rogers when I want it and also have to feel as though my loyalty is worth less than a new customer, what will I really have to lose? I'll bite the bullet and continue with the smart home because I don't think the other guys offer anything similar anyways. At least I will have the satisfaction of leaving Rogers and maybe even snag a better deal with Bell if I can stomach another 2 years worth of contracts after finally being contract free.
Mine went from #40 to #4 about an hour ago under a new line activation.
6+ 128GB Space Grey
Ah cool...then in addition to 6+ 64GB Space Grey models, I guess 6+ 128 Space Greys are also experiencing significant drops for new lines. Any other folks out there with different models experiencing significant drops in the past couple of hours? New lines or upgrades?
A guy from the rogers live chat told me that the Iphone 6+ were gonna get shipped tmrw?
How are people with New line activations seeing their position? I reserved one under new activation and it is not showing up under my account (only my device upgrade one is). I've contacted rogers and multiple reps told me that new line activations do not appear under "device registration" because it has no line to connect to??
Am I missing something here??
I’ve been watching this iPhone forum since it started and I also followed these forums for the iPhone 5 and 5S launches but have never posted before, so hello!
I have reserved three devices (consumer-side, not business) this time around:
1. iPhone 6+ 128gb Gold (OPEN)– reserved as a “new line” because the system was down @ 5:40 a.m. EST. My number was #41. I moved down to #39 yesterday. This afternoon my number went down to #21!
2. iPhone 6 128gb Gold (IN PROGRESS)– reserved as an upgrade @ 6:10 a.m.-ish when the system let me in. Was number #44 I believe. Moved down to #39 now. Went into progress sometime Monday night/Tuesday and has not moved and no shipping notice.
3. iPhone 6+ 128gb Gold (OPEN) – reserved as an upgrade @ 6:10 a.m.-ish because I was worried Rogers would give me a hard time about the “new line” reservation since I was going to be upgrading not adding a new line. I was number #110 I believe. Went down to #105 Monday/Tuesday overnight and now today it is #104. Has not moved even though the number went down on the “new line” reservation for the same model.
On Wednesday afternoon my local store in the north end of the GTA (where I reserved my phones to and where a friend works) told me they got about 30 or less iPhone 6 in stock in various models/sizes (no iPhone 6+) for walk-in customers for Friday. My friend is working today and just told me that they still have not received any reserved devices at all.
