I called Rogers and ordered Iphone 6 plus 64GB on October 9 and still no news. I checked several Rogers stores in Toronto downtown, no store is 64gb version of the phone. Checked apple store in Eaton Center but no luck. Apple store guys recommended to check online stock on their web site, but looks like Eaton center Apple store does not update their stock on their wbe site. It alwys shows all models out of stock. Please advise.
Thanks for all the information. Based on this, I might be getting my device in couple of weeks from Rogers.
I could be wrong but from my understanding, contracts are simply phone related (not plan) - since new CRTC rules kicked in. That means if you purchased a phone via rogers then that phone would be subsidized over a 3yr period (some corporate plans allow that) rather than a 2 yr (for consumers). The advantage of a 3yr subsidy is that is lowers the upfront fee you pay for a phone but the disadvantage is that you will be paying a phone off over a 3yr period as opposed to a 2 year.
But what about the contract? Well, there is no fee to cancel your "cell phone plan" because contracts are strictly for the phone. In your case, since you cancelled your iphone reservation via rogers, there is nothing bounding you to them (unless you owe them device balance from ur existing/previous phone).
When i called rogers, a business rep told me the above and mentioned i can sign up for a consumer plan, get an iphone in store..then switch to a corporate plan (cancelling my consumer plan). I asked if i would pay "contract cancellation fees" and the rep said there is no such thing anymore and explained the above.
But i would call and confirm with Rogers.
Good morning everyone,
Thinking of reserving my 6+ 64Gb, just some quick questions:
1) previous posts indicate 2100 people in line.... is this Canada wide ? doesn't it sound too little ?
2) does location matter ? e.g I will ask delivery in Winnipeg, Manitoba and i will be in town by the end of November
do you think i have a chance of getting it by then ?
3) when will the change of plans for the 2 year term happen ? on phone delivery ?
cause i'm on a month to month basis since May 2014
