Is the Warehouse open 24/7 to get shipments? or only until like 6pm? I just want this whole thing done and overwith at this point. Also^ Buying a phone from Future shop, wouldnt that mean you need to go to Rogers and get the plan filled out?
Thanks man (or woman..?)! im trying to be patient but it's so hard when the newest and greatest... I may cancel reservation and drive to Toronto and pick one up.
Oh, I'm well aware of that fact. I have called everywhere within a 100km radius for the past 3 weeks. It seems impossible unless you have amazing luck and find one sitting somewhere.
No where in my message did I blame anyone or the system. I'm just stating I don't understand the function of the system when there are so many people waiting, yet phones are still being given out to Rogers secondary supplier wireless stores or walk in retailers for walk in stock while people remain in the system. I am also upset that the system has done such a poor job giving customers an estimate for when their product should be in. Rogers stores a week after were giving the information of 6-8 weeks. based on that alone we should have a good idea, however the reservation system is showing that to be false. Now I understand that the supply is based on what Apple alots for Rogers, but if Rogers knew or had some idea that they wound't be able to meet demand in a reasonable time they should offer some incentive for putting all our eggs in one basket. I would of begin secondary sourcing, or put in reservations earlier at secondary sources.
If Rogers had stepped up to the plate by now and admitted that demand had outstripped supply and offered customers something for sticking with them, then perhaps I would not be so irked. But for them to say hey, come reserve with us, we're a fast way to get it. Inead we get, have a $40 speaker that is only while supplies last so the rest of you who have to wait get doubly screwed.
It was just a poor rollout for Apple and Rogers and Rogers has dropped the ball with keeping the customers informed.
