Hello @nasa25

Welcome back. Unfortunately due to my personal situation and financial situation I will be also sitting out on this one. Actually many are as this is getting a bit ridiculous on the pricing.

Here's kind of a ridiculous question...

 

since ive never reserved any other device on any other day, would the reservation system for the 'X' model work the same on Oct. 27?

 

same times, same process?

Hello @ragu13

Yes it will. They will add the iPhone X om October 27th on the reservation system just like they do with all phones when they have a set pre order date.

Most likely the same time but no one knows and but same process. It can be anytime during that day. Morning, middle of the day or night. The process is the same though.

maybe this year I'll actually be successful with the reservation system.. 3rd times the charm. Despite being like #6 last year the system still failed me on the first day launch and I ended up going to a retail store to buy it that evening.

Hey Meowmix,

Back again, great to see the gang back together Smiley Happy

I'm still debating whether to upgrade or not. I currently have the 6s so the 8 would be an okay upgrade but am not sure how much better it is really. The X is nice but I want to wait to see how it performs. Might be better holding off until next year. Decisions, decisions 😊

Re: Apple iPhone 8 / 8 Plus & iPhone X Reservation numbers / Questions!

Rogers website has the information up for the 8 and the X but no pricing info

Also a small printing error...it says in the title screen that the preorders start 10/27 but on the actual 'X' information screen it says preorders start on 11/27

Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come with all the confusion of last year all over again lol

No plan pricing as of as of yet however based on the current 7 plus pricing I assume the 8 plus will be 50 bucks more with any plan and the 'X' could be as much as 150 more

Amazing that a phone costs as much as a laptop to buy outright...Yikes!!!

Hello @ragu13

Most likely it's a screw up on the date. The release date for the iPhone X is November 3rd. Smiley Happy

Yeah that's true. More however I have gotten a source to tell me the iPhone X 256GB will be $649-$700. So roughly you will end up paying almost $1,000 upfront for it IF you buy the AppleCare+ and the devices on a 2yr term.
