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

 

@wpd.  Go with the Applecare.  

 

You get Technical Support that you will never get properly through Rogers (ie. Reservation disaster) and the chances of losing the phone is actually very slim.  You also have to consider the costs of approx. $264 vs. $99 (+$79 per incident fee) for 2 years. If you properly care for your phone the lower costs and better support service is worth the price.  

 

If you're clumsy the Applecare 2 incidents + fee equals $257 which is still lower than $264 Rogers.   The only reason Rogers is better is losing your phone and this might be a good idea to screw them over...Smiley Surprised

iPhone 6 128GB space gray #168 at last available listing (wednesday I had no visible # on site since).
Switched to SHIPPED on Thursday and UPS sent tracking #.
Only beef is that it is expected delivered at Rogers store on Monday (not affiliate), so not truly available on "launch day".
So site is lacking in social graces but apparently accurate.

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

I never use a screen protector... and my iPhone is always in my pocket with keys and change... I've also dropped my phone a few times, never a scratch! The screen protectors I find make it look worse, because you notice all the scratches on it.

I say applecare and keep the iPhone bare... looks much sexier that way

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

So here's my story...Business customer.

2 iPhone 6's reserved by calling in at 8am on Friday pre-order day (cause online system down all morning). I got # 1 and 2 in line for my models (Yes, in Canada). Was convinced I'd get both on launch day.

The status on both phones stayed the same and she didn't move as of 9am this morning. I called Rogers business and they had no idea if/when they would ship.

I then walked to my local Rogers Plus Store (Yonge/Lawrence) at about 9:45am. They had about 30 or so iPhone 6's available for walk ups. They had not received any of their reservations. I grabbed a 16GB Space Grey for my wife - called and cancelled her order. I missed out on the last 64GB Space Grey for me by about 2 minutes. Although they did have ones in other colours. So I decided to take my chances and wait.

Called Fairview Mall when I got home (10:15am) and they had some in stock. I raced up there and got their last 64GB Space Grey iPhone 6. Called and cancelled my order. I was home with both phones at 11:10am.

The moral of the story is I wasted so much time on the pre-order and with Rogers reps. It was all for nothing. I will never do a pre-order again. It was a huge failure. I was at the top of the list - it didn't mean much.

I am happy that i got the phones and I feel bad for those who haven't got theirs yet. Rogers needs to have better communication and a better system. Or just don't do pre-orders at all.

Someone cancelled in front of me on the Plus Silver 128GB line, I am at #33 now!

 

Keep 'em coming guys, the Plus is bigger than you think it is--most will probably end up exchanging it for the 4.7 anyways.... 🙂

So just picked up my wifes 16gig slate. I am very impressed with how it went. only took me about 10 minutes at Rogers for everything including them setting it up. They said the computer for the rogers activation system was upgraded after last year.

 

Phone is very nice. I'm really impressed with the free speaker. It gives great sound.

 

Hopefully my 6plus will be in by monday.. Still shows in progress

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

How long after you get the phone can you add apple care?

Did they say you have any time or after so many cell minutes to decide?

I was in a rush and declined everything.
