Yes, you can activate iPhones through Rogers at an Apple store. That’s what I did, only thing is you have to pay the cost of the phone on contract at the time of pickup and the taxes. For my 64GB iPhone X I paid $599 and around $30 for tax at the Apple store. The early device upgrade fee if you have one and the $25 activation fee is added to your next bill.

For those of you that ordered over the phone how do you know where you are in line? I never got any confirmation email.

Hello @Kunaal23

Yes it is!. However you need to pay the device price upfront Plus the taxes. So $599 or $799 Plus taxes. The device balance and connection fee will be added on your next invoice bill.

Hello @SaabFanatic

They don't. They can't track their progress unless they get a shipment email.. The only ones that can are via device reservation or if you are a business account and the business support team puts the order through for u.

Amazing! So I'd be able to reserve an iPhone online for the Apple store and then cancel my preorder once I pick up my phone?

Hello @Kunaal23

Yes you can! First reserve it with Apple and get it. Then cancel the reservation on the Rogers site.

I have the reservation set. Only thing is I reserved via phone, so do you think my current reservation would affect my ability to upgrade in-store?

Also, I have about $200 in credits applied. A facebook rep said they'd keep the credits, but not sure if that's true.

Hello @Kunaal23

You would need to call in and ask. Most of the times regular consumers that pre order over the phone actually do the upgrade automatically.. Call in and ask and see!

How come we can't do the ship to home option on the X online and only via phone? I did it successfully over the phone but not sure why they make us go through this?

Hello @SaabFanatic

Due to the high demand they shut off the ship to home option the day after launch and only have the reservation open and over the phone.
