Re: Apple iPhone Xs / Xr & Xs Max Questions / Reservation numbers!

I was one of those people ho stayed up refreshing over and over again and got 2nd in line for a 64 X last year but i can't for the life of me remember what time Rogers went live.

 

I'm considering doing the same this year. 

 

I had 2 questions.

1. Does anyone remember exactly what time Rogers' reservation opened?

2. Has anyone had experience with Apple's reservation and how does it compare?

Hello @merms

Opened at 6:10am. However every year the time changes. So it's not a promise that it will open the same this year. It could open the same time or later. I explained this on page 2.

Apple pre orders are full price. So you pay upfront what for the phone via CC. They do have the option to reserve a phone for pick up and pick a carrier to go with however last year they froze that for a couple days days and went back up again.

Hey guys

Sad news. Apple has removed the Lighting to 3.5 headphone adapter from all the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr. This is a low blow at this point. First they wknt include a fast charging adapter. Now they are forcing you to buy this to listen to ur headphones plugged in.

Also the X is being discontinued as of today.

Hello @hhhiii

Take this up with CRTC or the CCTC and Apple's head office.

You can buy any dual sim phone and add two sims and it works. This is nothing to do with crtc it is carriers choice to support esim

Hello @hhhiii

I am talking about the phones being sold in Canada. Unfortunately no one in Canada as a carrier sells dual sim phones at the moment. You can buy a dual sim phone from another country and use it.

Hello @hhhiii

I made a mistake there.. Didn't realize Apple Canada will be releasing the iPhone Xs / Xs Max and Xr in dual sim..

It will be 1 nano sim card slot and the other will be a ESIM instead. I checked up on it after dinner and realized that all carried here in Canada show this on their splash page for the new phones.

However i don't know if it's both enabled or just the nano sim that's enabled.
