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

Hello @jackthecompguy

I do remember for a couple years now that small business clients had issues upgrading at the Apple store at launch. However some did report it worked. It seems like it could be something on the account like a code that they can not bypass or have to call in and deal with it.

You would need to contact your closest Apple store and speak them. They will give you more of a clear insight then we can here as most of us don't live in the same area of eachother.

I do believe you can get up to 3 devices at once. I remember someone saying that last year.

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

Hey guys!

Pricing is up for the Xs / XS Max 2yr term on a Ultra plan pricing.

64GB - $429.99
256GB - $629.99
512GB - $ 889.99

iPhone XS Max
64GB - $ 559.00
256GB - $759.99
512GB- $1,019.00


Now AS you can see those are with the NEW Ultra plans. For Premium + it will be more. However i can not see it atm. I would say at most $100-$200 more for the + plans.

$960 subsidy on the 64gb Max

 

I was expecting $920 so that's actually not bad at all

Hello @nasa25

Mind you this is with the Ultra Plans. If you are wanting to keep your Premium or Premium + plan then the prices go up by $100-$200 at that point for each model and GB as you know.

Rogers is the only carrier thus far to post pricing.

 

I may end up getting the 256GB Max. Don't know yet. My 64GB has lasted me a year ( all my images and videos upload on my personal dropbox every night over wifi and i have icloud as well. )

@Meowmix yup I misread your post at first

 

I'm expecting premium plus to be $200 more and premium to be $400 more....

Hello @nasa25

Yea i did the math and if you want the 64GB on a + plan then it starts at $759.99+ taxes. So It may be worth calling into Rogers and speak to a rep. See if they can switch u to the ultra plan but try and give u some small discount.

If not then stay with the plan you have now but pay more upfront.

@Meowmix yeah I already spoke to rogers a few weeks ago to see what they could do for me. 

 

It's not worth it for me to switch from my premium plan.  So if I want the 64GB Max I'm probably looking at $959.  I was expecting a $520 subsidy so if I can get that pricing (which includes a $560 subsidy) I'd be pretty happy.

Hello @nasa25

Yea that is true. With the pricing they have posted for the Ultra plans, i dont believe many will go and get it with the older plans unless they upgrade to the Ultra plans or dish out the outright cost.

This may well be the first year Apple sales may be lower then before. Pricing is way to high. Even with the plans cost, its still to high.

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

@Meowmix yup and for people that have a decent premium or premium plus plan, it doesn't make sense to upgrade to an ultra tier and increase the monthly cost far greater than the extra subsidy you'd be getting

 

Like I could have moved to a premium plus plan but Rogers wanted an extra $20 per month (so $480 over 2 years).  I'm only saving an extra $200 on the phone so it makes no sense for me to do that.  Many other people are probably in the same boat.
