All NEW HTC ONE

I Plan to Stick Around

I just cancelled my reservation for the Galaxy S5 and reserved the New HTC ONE (M8). It is my understadning that the ones who reserve, these will be sent out asap and should recieve them by weeks end? I wonder if anyone has any info on this.

 

I've decided to go with HTC because I believe that we should support the high quality build they have been offering. I've had the original HTC One since launch last year and with some known issues (mainly camera) the phone is stellar. Hopefully the camera issues don't carry forward and HTC can present the most well rounded phone this year.

 

I was going to go with Sony and their Z2, but with there little to no information about the release on that phone I have changed my mind. HTC has done a good job with this release/roll out, if it goes as planned and I hope HTC is rewarded by the public. I would hate to see them go under when they are releasing some great tech.

Hello zombiejc

Yes that is correct. Mine went IN PROGRESS not to long ago. This means they have the device and they are starting the shipping process. I either will get it tomorrow or Thursday.

If your status says OPEN. Then they are waiting for the device to come and then change status when they get one. I was #16 when i reserved mine

So yes we all will get it before the end of the weekend if we reserve it today or tomorrow. I am getting both the HTC One M8 and the S5.

Mine In Progress as well. I really appreciate the speed at which HTC has moved with this, it's much more enjoyble process than the announcement and then weeks, if not months, of waiting for a release date announcement.

Hello zombiejc

That is true. I like how whoever orders it online, gets it within days but stores will start selling it on and after April 10th. A day before the S5 release. I was planning on buying both Anyways lol

Hello brararsh

It shall change sometime between 2pm-11pm EST today if they are going to ship them out. When they ship them out, you get a email with the tracking number. This tracking number is for UPS.

Please remember tho. If you reserved it to go to a Rogers Authorized dealership, you may get the phone either the same day or 1-3 business days after. Reason being as the authorized dealers have their own warehouse where Rogers ships the devices too. When the device is shipped to their warehouse, you can no longer track it. You just have to wait for the phone call from the store.

If you ship it to a regular Rogers corporate store, you will receive it the next day it ships.

How can I get to know if it's corporate or an authorized dealer, I have got it shipped to Rogers Plus at 1030 Adelaide St N, London, ON N5Y 2M9

Hello brararsh

Let us know how you like it when you get it! 😄 It does suck that we wont get the bundle of accessories that Telus is offering their customers but its alright tho!

Actually you know what, I like Rogers as they are transparent with their policies. I switched from Fido to Rogers and they did refund my 1 month advance as it's same company. Now I have business 70 bundle and no other provider gives it.

 

I am only unsure about one thing, as I didn't take any device when I got a new account at Rogers, I will just pay $229 and activate my phone or I have to go by any other process. My plan includes that I can have 1 phone from rogers without any increase in rate plan.

Hello brararsh

Fido & Rogers are the same company as they are owned by Rogers. Rogers has a better discount program & plans & phones then Fido.

That is correct. You will pay the $229 + $15 connection fee & your monthly service plan. That is going to be on your bill once you do the upgrade.

Thanks for your help, you have great knowledge of products and plans.

 

Just last question, do you work for Rogers or it's all your General Knowledge? 😛

Hey as you mentioned, 2PM to 11PM, is that a specific time when shipping is done? I mean is there a reason behind it?

Hello brasarsh


Shipping is done around 8pm. UPS picks up the stuff around 7-8pm EST. From 2- 11pm is just when Rogers prints out the waybills and gives u the tracking number

Re: All NEW HTC ONE

I just had a chat with Rogers and the rep said you are still in queue and order has not been placed yet.

I told him that am getting in process status but he said you are still in queue. I asked for my number in queue so he said he cannot see that information.

 

I am not sure that I will get it by Friday or not as he said once I get shipping email it will still take 1-3 days to reach me.

Re: All NEW HTC ONE

Brararsh, what was your original Position number before it got switched to In Progress?

Re: All NEW HTC ONE

Hello ivanzchan


What number are you and what's your status? I was #16 when i reserved.

Re: All NEW HTC ONE

I'm crying inside... Smiley Sad

I logged in at 12:55PM and clicked to reserve at 1pm, Got Position 2, but I didn't know about the corporate store vs Authorised dealers until it was too late (upon reading meowmix's explanation later in the evening).  Mine is in Progress. but I doubt I'll be able to get it before the end of week just because I have little faith in speedy parcel deliveries in Toronto and generally things don't turn out the way I wish they would.
