Once again i am making the iPhone Questions / Reservation thread!!!!! Apple just announced the new iPhone which is called iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus . The new iPhone's includes a bigger screen, different backing design, better camera & VoLTE & much much more. . This thread will be where you need to post questions & even your reservation numbers once Rogers announces it & puts it up. Please do NOT make another thread about reservation & or about the new iPhone . I would like to keep it as one thread & clean..I am sure getting the iPhone Plus !!!
1). Once Rogers has announce when they will add the iPhone 6 to the reservation list & the day comes, sign into your My Rogers account - Product & Services – Wireless & you will see a Red wording saying “Device Reservation" on the main page. Click that & it will take you to the page. Once there you will need to pick which device you want " iPhone 6 / 6 Plus 16GB, 64G,128GB " & the color of the device you want. You also need to pick the store you want it to go too. Just to make it clear, reservations are for current Rogers wireless customers which have contracts with them. Rogers will put up the Pre order list for people that want to pre order the phone which have no wireless accounts with Rogers. Also just too add below is the meaning of the statues .
- If your status is "OPEN", your reservation has been made and we are awaiting product from our supplier. At this time you can change your pick-up location, contact email address or cancel your reservation.
- If your status is "CANCELLED", your reservation has been cancelled and your reservation fee will be credited back to your account.
- If your status is "IN PROGRESS", we have begun the shipment process and you will not be able to edit or cancel your reservation any longer. The next email you will get will be the one that confirms shipment to the store you chose.
- If your status is "SHIPPED", your device has left our warehouse and is on its way to the store you chose. Keep in mind that you can NOT reserve a device via calling them. It can ONLY happen if the reservation system is down but they will to reserve it via online. Plus if you reserve it via phone, you will NOT see your status or know what number you are VS reserving it online.
2). Please keep in mind that if you pick a Rogers Authorized dealership, you may not be able to get the device soon after it ships. This has been the main issue with all the iPhone reservations & most of the other devices which have been on the reservation system. I would suggest you pick a Local Rogers store (Corporate Rogers store or Rogers Plus) to go to get it. When the Rogers warehouse sends it out, the Rogers stores will get them first. Some of the Rogers Authorized dealers have their own warehouse in which the devices will go to. After that there is no tracking until the device ships from that warehouse & goes to the store & they call you. You can also look for your FlexTab aka upgrade fee online via My Rogers or contact Rogers & they will let you know.
3). Also remember you are going to have to put down a $40 fee to reserve the device. Once it ships out, the $40 fee will be reversed back into your account. IF you want to cancel your reservation, that $40 will also be credit back to you. So either way you will get that $40 back. Also remember you may NOT be the first to get the phone if you have a high number or a low one. The Reservation system is made to have a device reserved for you as the stores will be sold out. If your reservation status still says “ OPEN” after launch & a store has a device in stock, you can still go in the store & get it. Then come back home & cancel the reservation online. If the status is “ IN PROGRESS” & you get a device via a store that have one for u, you have to wait until it ships out & then tell the store that u picked u do not want it. Do reemember the reservation number is CANADA - WIDE. This means if lets say you are #45 in line for the black one, you are #45 for that GB , color & model Canada wide. Also keep in mine you have to be the account holder in order to pick up the device at the store. No one else can. You can try adding a family member as Level on the account but some stores will decline it.

4) .For Corporate / Business customers. You guys will have a different line then regular customers do. This means you guys have a few different statutes then regular customers do. Also keep in mind for the past few years there has been issues / confusen about business customers getting the phones via the reservation. You guys will be getting them the day of launch or after depending on your status & what goes on.
Pre orders will come out Friday Sept 12th & Launch date is Next Friday Sept 19th. I am sure Rogers will follow those orders. As for the device orders & which models Rogers will get. I am sure Rogers will get botboth models like they did last year.
Also the prices for both phones are different. So if you are going to get the iPhone 6 Plus, it will be much higher price then the iPhone 6. Rogers will announce the phone prices within either today or sometime before Friday!!!
Also remember please post anything related about iPhone 6 & 6 Plus in here please. I know this is a long thread to read, but read it before asking multiple questions in which have been already answered in this post ( if they have been answered on this post / thread). I will do my best like I have for the past 4 years of doing this to answer any questions you have about the reservations or device.
Here are both links from Apple for the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus. I know for sure i will be getting the iPhone 6 Plus!.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I talked to a local Rogers Plus store in Calgary, Alberta and they indicated there were only 3 iPhone 6 Plus came in last Friday.
There are no stocks and people might have to wait for months until the next shipment.
iPhone 6 Plus might not be as good as it seem - http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/22/6827863/apple-iphone-6-plus
OK so almost like 1973 in line in Rogers ( CORP rep also reserved online and he said could be 4 weeks ) and the apple reservation doesn't help as Vancouver is iPhone town, nothing available at all.
So decided to pay extra $30 over regular price and buy it from craigslist seller and when mine arive I will see it outright, maybe $20 cheaper, will lose some $$ but then the wait is too long
As for 6+, used Note 2 for 2 years before this and decided for 4.7 inches as after usabilty - the size is too big for lot of reasons
Be extra careful especially the slippery slope
Too large for car holders, must have dropped like 100 times
Fitting in pocket
Holding and using with 1 hand
I know its the lets combine a tablet and hone, no - its not the perfect match, a 6.5 is a good match but u can't have a phone that size, its a terrible trade off. Its individual preference but after using a large phone or phablet, I much rather have a decent size and worry about lot of things above
I know we're all anxious here, but at least most of us are keeping it light.
Please don't get carried away ...
Hilarious.... my device was delivered to the store according to tracking on launch day around lunch.... ROGERS just calls me now to pick it up..... i know for a fact it wasnt busy as i was in the store lol... pathedic service. P.S i got a device at a diff store on launch day
Got sick of waiting for Rogers, so i reserved one yesterday and picked up 2x plus's for my wife and i. Loving it, but not sure if i am gonna keep it or trade it for a 6. Seems a little too big for my needs. Gonna try it out for a week and see.
Samething happened last year too, used rogers reservation system and was totally useless.
Here to hoping the Masonville Apple store gets some 6+s today!!! I will post if I see them pop up, that is only after I have reserved mine. They still have 16gb gold 6 if anyone is looking. get out of the rogers reservation system!
First time using the reservation system, and not impressed thus far. You would think that there would be some sort of lead time, for each type of product. Orders are processed and delivery lead times are part of every commercial business arrangement.
I'm not sure if my "position" is for my specific product and or chosen store; or if it is for all of the Rogers reservation system for desired product.
It only looks to be slightly decreasing by assumed cancellations of frustration. Talked to local pick up store and was advised that people that had ordered last thursday were getting their units (next day) on launch.
I can relate and even laugh at myself and others desire and impatience; but if there was even a slight bit of communication I'm sure the community would deal with it.
it's the uncertainty that is caucing frustration and potentially driving consumers away.
If it is going to be a day, or going to be 2 weeks or 2 months, at least throw a dog a bone so that people know where they stand. If they want to cancel then, or find other means or be patient.
Come on Rogers, figure it out; this isn't y our first BBQ
