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

Hello @Prospect

Yes but those models didn't cost $2,000 outright and Rogers can order plenty of Samsung or LG or Google phones and get them..

Apple controls pricing and stock for all their items. Something many don't understand. As someone that worked closely with Apple and at Best Buy I can tell you that Apple sends out how many devices they want. Not what the carrier orders. It's not right but that's how Apple rolls.

You were lucky to get those on launch as many didn't and I know since I made those threads lol.

Don't get me wrong. Rogers has had plenty of issues every year with the reservation system. No one can deny that. Lol

It was a waste. I was (and still am) #1 in queue as a business customer and my pre-order is still in "open" status. This confirms that the change in the position number is due to cancellations and that no business customer has received a 64gb Silver XS Max. Not surprised, as this happens every year to business customers.

Hi all

 

I ended up cancelling my pre-order ship to home method. it took quite a lot to actually cancel the order from Rogers reps but in the end, got it done. I had pre-ordered the 256gb silver iPhone xs Max. however, a buddy of mine mentioned that he noticed online that all the apple stores in the GTA have plenty of stock on all iphone xs max options and colours. i actually just picked up my new xs Max from them. so if you really want the phone and paid outright for it like i did, it's best to check out what apple has.

 

 

enjoy!!

@itzyabooyyy you can also do a carrier upgrade at the Apple store.  So it's not totally necessary to pay full pop for the phone at Apple.  

 

For anyone that's been waiting and are remotely close to an Apple store it's a no brainer to get it from them

@itzyabooyyy yeah if you have a sick plan it's best to keep it and just get the phone subsidy free.  Saves you more in the long run.

Hello @itzyabooyyy

Great to hear! Yeah most Apple stores have stock in every 8am.

I would say with your plan as long as I could. Those plans don't came very often or at all back..

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

I did a test order again on https://secure.rogersdirect.ca/ for a Xs Max 64GB grey. The queue status seems accurate because the new order placed me at 39/39, and my 1/38 switched to 1/39. So at this point Rogers didn't skip anyone, it's really a bunch of people canceling, and that Rogers really have no stock for Xs Max 64GB grey at all for https://secure.rogersdirect.ca/ users at all.

 

On the contrary, my https://secure2.rogersdirect.ca/order for Xs 64GB grey already arrived. So it's really just https://secure.rogersdirect.ca/ users being shafted. 

 

As a reminder, I used https://secure.rogersdirect.ca/ because it lets me keep my plan as-is, and is a corporately paid plan (work pays my monthly plan). https://secure2.rogersdirect.ca/ is for a discounted, employee paid plan (I pay monthly) and I had to change my monthly plan to the current offerings.
