Hello jkanaris

No as the larger dealer is the Apple store and even they can't get any from their own company. Apple is shorting all the larger models to everyone even their own stores it seems.

It all seems pretty haphazard to me, Meomix, especially Rogers' online reservation number system.

Hello jkanaris

I know it does. I know. But the fact is that Apple needs more supply for everyone and opening up in China the world's largest carrier isn't making anything better now at all. Apple needs to learn from this.

What's really sad to me is that Rogers doesn't care. It doesn't need to care (in fact they may not even notice) since customers continue to line up for the product, despite their (Apple's) inability to supply. They're not suffering a hit business-wise which means they don't really need to care.

One other problem is that apple uses container ships from china because Air is to expensive.  

With the cost of fuel rising those ships travel slower and take around 3 to 4 week to cross.  

When we do get our order they will probably have sent enough to have flooded the market and you will be able to pick any phone size up from any store in the country.  

my guess is 2 to 3 weeks to make them 3 to 4 weeks to ship them 3 to 5 days in customs I would say apple will be shipping them to suppliers early next week we should have them the end of the week after that whether you are number 2 in line or you order tonight and are number 4000 we will all get them at the same time... Just in time for Remembrance Day

Hello jkanaris

In all due respect what carrier does?. Rogers should have communicated a bit better things like this but they would say the same thing I have been saying or others have said. It would be nice if they did tho. They wouldn't give a ETA.

Hello pgguru

I had the same thought last night. Indeed they only use a 747 BOEING for the first shipments and then the others are shipped via container ships. That was proved last year and the year before.

That's exactly my point, Meomix. It's simply not on the radar when the demand is there. If demand wasn't there, then companies would pay heed.

Mayeb Rogers should follow Bell's lead?

I know, Iknow ... Rogers is already offering a free speaker ("as long as supply lasts").

 

What they haven't done but Bell has is to actually email their customers with an explanation and apology!!!

 

That is what Customer Relations is all about.

Hello SpeedyC

They stopped offering the speaker as of October 1st. Got pushed back. So whoever reserved it after that date won't get one.

I do agree they should either give a small discount or better yet a explaining whats going on and a appolize like u said
