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

Welcome to the Rogers reservation system these are the things you learn from trial and error and missing out on first day orders 3 times.

-Never ship to home
-don’t trust the reps
-no one knows anything other than the system will probably open at 6am but has opened earlier in the past
-chances are if your order hasn’t moved 2-3 days before launch day it’s a really good chance you’re not seeing it launch day and you should start planning a back up plan. Your best bet is find a Best Buy mobile and go there they will get something.

First time I reserved late at like 9am and was #160 for iPhone 5 - and it came the 2nd week

2nd time the reservation system unexpectedly opened early at 3am instead of 6:00 and I was late (again) - walked into Best Buy at 6pm in Hamilton and picked it up

Third time I was #6 for jet black and they didn’t move any units launch day. Went to Best Buy at 8:30 and settles for matte black.

This is the first time I’ve ever got a phone on launch day through this system.

4 attempts.

Hello @GibMcFragger

Honestly i seen this with the iPhone 7 launch. During launch day some devices get shipped to the stores early morning / mid afternoon via UPS.

I had this happen to me on my IPhone 6, I called in the morning, but it was on the UPS truck for the day, called after 2pm, and it was in the store.

Mine is via Canada Post (to the store). At least that's what the pre-order tracking number shows.

It's all good. I work until 5pm on Friday anyways. If it makes it to the store Friday afternoon it's fine, I can't get there until around 6-630pm anyways. Mall is open until 9pm.
