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

I sort of view this as I do game consoles.

 

You can buy the base model or a deluxe with a game and extra accessories but in the end, you're still paying more for those extras.

 

With each extra that's packed in, the price goes up. Personally, I've come to like having a reduced price that gives me the option to choose my own accessories.

 

Give it a little time and you'll see all sorts of more affordable third party options, it's still early in the game yet! Besides, I'm sure most people are more excited for wireless charging than fast charging! I was just looking at potentially buying a new car and saw that many come with wireless charging built in. That's pretty cool.

 

In time, wireless charging will become as ubiquitous as WiFi and a charging cable will become like the Ethernet cable.

Thanks for the quick response @Meowmix.

So there is no official time yet communicated by Rogers?

Hello @Radar2000

The official timing is 6-8am EST as always every year. Last time they gave a time, the system pre maturely went up and many got update. The other time before that the system went up an hour after they gave the time. So they are saying 6-8am EST now ( as per the conversations I have had with them) ".

I think I'm going with the Apple iPhone 8 Plus 64GB @ $359.99.

 

Does anyone know if Rogers will let you pay for this upfront on your major credit card instead of it appearing on your monthly bill? The reason why I ask, is instead of paying $169+ for Apple care, I would have an additional year of warranty added from my credit card provider.

 

Cheers!

Hello @Radar2000

All upgraded done in store since last year you now have to pay the sub price in store. The only thing that appears on ur next invoice is your upgrade fee.
