I was able to reserve for pickup at the Apple store for 2 silver iPhone xs max 256gb phones. Salesperson got the phones and sept with my Rogers current plan. Paid the same amount I would have paid if I got my preordered phones from Rogers with my current plan so I’m very satisfied. Cancelled my reservation with Rogers without penalty since the reservations were still open status.
FYI, the carrier plan reservation at the Apple store resets with new stock every day at 8-8:30am. If anyone wants to get their phone later today or Sunday, this is probably the best way right now.
now comes the ardorous task of backing up everything and reloading 😋
I purchased a Max at the Apple Store at the subsidy price on contract renewal with Rogers (1189$ on a Premium plan). I also had a corporate code that they applied immediately on activation so the answer is yes, you can get a subsidized iPhone and maintain your corporate discount as long as you have your code or proof of corporate employment.
Well, well, well. It's Monday morning, the store that has my phone opens in 19 minutes. Fingers crossed that I get a phone call to come pick it up, it's like all of my frustration this weekend simmered and now I can't stand the sight of my 6S. I want my new toy!
