Yes. The apple store can set it up with rogers even tho you are on a corp plan. 

 

I did it yesterday with a 6+, got tired of waiting in the dark with rogers.

 

The one thing tho with a corp account they will not be able to do it on their system. 

 

They will have to call rogers, and then do a manual contract. 

 

Took me 45 minutes start to finish, but I have a 6+ on a corp contract now.

@Meowmix

Do you recall the turn-around time on those stages?

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

My 2 cents...

My 3 year $50 corporate 350 plan expires Dec 4. Like a lot of people, i don't want to lose this plan! I called the regular Rogers phone line to inquire about getting the iPhone 6. They gave me some prices and said i could do it at the local Rogers Corporate store. I went to said store, where i was immediately told they couldn't do anything for me, and that i would have to contact my corporate rep. He did say that i would not be able to keep my plan, and that i would have to switch to a minimum $65/month plan, with 3GB data (I currently have 5GB). 

I went home and called the Rogers business line. They told me that i would not be able to keep my plan, but that it would be a minimum $60/month plan. Both they and the store employee said that i would be looking at 1-2 months for an iPhone 6. 

I emailed my corporate rep. She said that that they were getting some phones shipped to them at corporate and asked if i would like her to hold one for me. She also said keeping my plan was no problem.

Yesterday i picked up my iPhone 6 64GB, and renewed my plan for 3 years. Really just goes to show you the many different stories you hear!

How did you pickup your phone if you are on a corporate plan?

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

Hi Meowmix,

 

I ordered the 6 plus 16gb  in silver on sept. 21 . I have been sitting at 415 in reserve list for 1.5 weeks. I have been a regular costomer for many years. I am upgrading my phone. Any idea when they will move the regular online reserve list?? 

 

Any help would be appreciated...

She gave me the option to pick it up or have it shipped. Naturally i chose to pick up!

That is unfortunate. We don't have a large account (only around 10 phones). It might be a case of who you speak with. I had two people tell me no, and two more tell me the yes (shout out to Sophie and Sebastien from FS) , and in the end the yes's were right. The rep has to call Rogers for details on how to set it up because consumer stores don't have the corporoate options available to them. For me, the guy was on the phone with Rogers for almost an hour while he processed my upgrade, and they told him what to do every step of the way.

 

Best of luck to you!

Regardless of all the communication issues with Rogers ( phone supply is not Rogers fault ) and Apple dedicating more supply to their own stores, there is one thing that stands out for me in all this mess;

 

The Apple Reservation System is absolutely a role model process.  

 

Real time inventory, selection of date / time to pickup, confirmation of order and pickup details via e-mail.

 

Rogers, take notice on how to properly manage a reservation system.
