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

That's the worst part about this entire mess.

 

Rogers wanted folks to pre-order, and so we did. And yet you had a better chance to get a device by going to a Rogers store and get the model you wanted, or go through Apple or an alternate re-seller.

 

So why bother with the reservations? If you weren't planning to honour them prior to the last minute crush.

 

Look, I want to throw my money at you to get the latest gizmo and you're doing your best to **** me off. How does that make business sense?

 

If and when I get my device (through whatever means), I am going to pay for it outright, and not renew my contract. And then shop around and see who really wants my business... of course, given the stupidily high rates we pay for cell service in Canada, we all get gouged regardless.

 

By the way, I'm still #18 in the business queue for the 6+ 128GB Gold that I had reserved on back on the 12th. I've moved up... 2 spots. You can't tell me you didn't get at least 100 of those phones for your customers?

 

(Of course, being the cynic I am, I'm guessing a lot of those early shipments went to friends and family of Rogers employees... that happened the last couple of times around as well.)

I REALLY NEED SOMEONE'S HELP!

 

My girlfriend and I just moved to Montreal from France. We've been here since August. Both of us have been waiting for the iphone 6 to get a contract with an operator. 

She reserved a gold iPhone 6 from the St Catherine Apple Store, everything went great,

 

However, when signing up for the contract, her debit card did not work (no security code behind), and she wasn't able to get the phone... 

 

When signing up for a contract, are credit cards MANDATORY? We currently don't have one...

Our store said they received 4 iphone 6's and no 6 plus on Friday. Which makes me mad. If I knew preorder didn't work I would have went to the store early instead.

The reservation doesnt mean that you will get one on release day.. it just means that one will be reserved for you.

With stock in the past.. sometimes a store only got 3 phones  or NONE for walk ins.
And it took a good MONTH before more stock came in.

As stock did start to come in, the REMAINING pre-orders were filled.

So pre-orering, if there is not enough stock, can get you a phone before people taking the risk on the availability of a walk in purchase.

Unfortunately, yes... to get a phone on CONTRACT with the hardware subsidy (the discount), you need to have a credit card usually at min... for them to be able to do a CREDIT CHECK on you.  Pretty much just to see, that your not someone prone to having a BAD credit, for not paying bills, etc

@Summersca

 

You have it exactly right.  I've been with Rogers my whole life, just finished a 3 year contract with them, stuck with my old phone (iphone 4) to get the 6.  When preorders opened I was ready to re-up with Rogers for another 2 years.  Had my issues with them, and not happy about the new expensive plans but nothing I could do about it.

 

Do to this godforesaken joke of a reservation system, the complete lack of communication, and the awfulness of their website, I'm done.  I've missed my chance to reserve through the Apple Store for launch, but I'll take my chances checking their stock every day rather than give Rogers one more cent.  Going to cancel all my Rogers (2 phones) accounts and sign up with Telus for everything.

 

I know this rant will not change one thing, but my god I hope enough of us decide not to put up with this crap.  I don't expect Rogers to notice, nor do I want anything if they do.  Sometimes you have to stop pleading with your abuser for some relief and just cut all ties!
