After returning my iPhone 6 and managing to pick up a non reserved 6 PLUS from Apple, I'm going to be returning the 6 PLUS. The huge screen is eye candy for me, but it's use as an MP3 player and actual, phone on-the-go, feels too big and heavy.
The regular 6 I had was extremely light and looked more smooth and slick than the 6 PLUS. I can kind of understand how Apple figured more people would buy the regular 6. I can't even tell the difference between the 720p and 1080p resoulition between the phones.
My wife constantly makes fun of how I look holdng up this huge block when I talk on the phone. Despite trying to convince myself of keeping it, I just couldn't.
I seriously suggest you stay under 30 minutes of talk time to ensure you can return your phone to Rogers in case you feel the same way as I do. If you are like me, and use the phone on the go, for the gym, as an mp3 player, you may want to reconsider the phone itself.
I think I'll throw this bad boy on kijiji and sell it at base price. I traded in my old iphone and got $205 from Apple, so I'm not in the market to make a profit.
Good luck on those still waiting for the phone, cheers!

Meowmix, the question was doing an upgrade FROM APPLE, not Rogers. If you upgrade your phone at Apple, they will make you pay for Applecare ( if you want it ) up front.
I did it at Apple and have the receipt. Asked for it to go on my Rogers bill and Apple stated they could not do it.
Wait, so if you're doing a Hardware Upgrade Fee, the cost of the phone AND the hardware upgrade fee as well as the Apple Care price can ALL be added on your invoice?
Hey andrewmalheiro, I was in the same boat this week. I just got back from returning my iPhone 6 Plus to Rogers after having it since this past Sunday. It wasn't at all that bad during the week when i was just commuting to work and the phone sat on my desk or on the passenger seat of the car. I absolutely loved the screen. Then I tried cycling, the gym, jogging and it was not a great experience to say the least.
Stunning screen and incredible battery life but for my needs, it just didn't work out. I hope whoever is next in line in the Toronto area will enjoy it! It is a space grey 64GB iPhone 6 Plus. It is an amazing phone that'll make the right owner very happy I'm sure.
Off to reserve a regular 6 🙂
Roger's live chat is completely useless.
I upgraded the line I ordered my 6 plus on, my 6 plus is shipped. I decided last evening to upgrade all 3 lines. Getting my lines confused I upgraded the wrong one in store. Can I use my the phone I reserved on that line on my other line (all the same account) when it comes in?
The agent on the live chat is saying no, I have to cancel and reserve all over again once the phone arrives in store since it's already cleared for shipping. But... I've heard others who when they didn't want their reserved phones took a friend or family member in and transferred their reserved device to that person. So confusing.
Hwo can you check your reserve status in line? On my Rogers all I get is a generic few categories and my profile overview keeps saying thre is an error with the system at this time yada yada... been that way over a week. I'm not a current rogers customer, only reserved the phone. Emai confirmation said I would receive weekly updates, which of course, hasnt happened yet.
