Apple IPhone 7 / 7 Plus Reservation numbers / Questions

Hey everyone!!

Once again its the time of the year that Apple announces their new iPhone line up. I am happy to announce That Apple this afternoon announced the Apple iPhone 7 / 7 Plus !. The device seem to have amazing specs! Including water resistant and most of all, new cameras and also including new chips and memory!



1). Once Rogers has announce when they will add the Apple iPhone 7/7 Plus to the reservation list & the day comes, sign into your My Rogers account - Product & Services – Wireless & you will see a Red wording saying “Device Reservation" on the main page. Click that & it will take you to the page. Once there you will need to pick which device you want; IPhone 7 / 7 Plus in any color and Black and what other colors they may release it on. You also need to pick the store you want it to go too. Just to make it clear, reservations are for current Rogers wireless customers which have contracts with them. Rogers will put up the Pre order list for people that want to pre order the phone which have no wireless accounts with Rogers. Also just too add below is the meaning of the statues .

- If your status is "OPEN", your reservation has been made and we are awaiting product from our supplier. At this time you can change your pick-up location, contact email address or cancel your reservation.
- If your status is "CANCELLED", your reservation has been cancelled and your reservation fee will be credited back to your account.
- If your status is "IN PROGRESS", we have begun the shipment process and you will not be able to edit or cancel your reservation any longer. The next email you will get will be the one that confirms shipment to the store you chose.
- If your status is "SHIPPED", your device has left our warehouse and is on its way to the store you chose. Keep in mind that you can NOT reserve a device via calling them. It can ONLY happen if the reservation system is down but they will to reserve it via online. Plus if you reserve it via phone, you will NOT see your status or know what number you are VS reserving it online.


2). Please keep in mind that if you pick a Rogers Authorized dealership, you may not be able to get the device soon after it ships. This has been the main issue with all the iPhone reservations & most of the other devices which have been on the reservation system. I would suggest you pick a Local Rogers store (Corporate Rogers store or Rogers Plus) to go to get it. When the Rogers warehouse sends it out, the Rogers stores will get them first. Some of the Rogers Authorized dealers have their own warehouse in which the devices will go to. After that there is no tracking until the device ships from that warehouse & goes to the store & they call you. You can also look for your FlexTab aka upgrade fee online via My Rogers or contact Rogers & they will let you know.


3). Also remember you are going to have to put down a $40 fee to reserve the device. Once it ships out, the $40 fee will be reversed back into your account. IF you want to cancel your reservation, that $40 will also be credit back to you. So either way you will get that $40 back. Also remember you may NOT be the first to get the phone if you have a high number or a low one. The Reservation system is made to have a device reserved for you as the stores will be sold out. If your reservation status still says “ OPEN” after launch & a store has a device in stock, you can still go in the store & get it. Then come back home & cancel the reservation online. If the status is “ IN PROGRESS” & you get a device via a store that have one for u, you have to wait until it ships out & then tell the store that u picked u do not want it. Do reemember the reservation number is CANADA - WIDE. This means if lets say you are #45 in line for the black one, you are #45 for that GB , color & model Canada wide. Also keep in mine you have to be the account holder in order to pick up the device at the store. No one else can. You can try adding a family member as Level on the account but some stores will decline it.


For frequently asked questions about the Rogers Reservation System, please click here Rogers Reservation FAQ


4) .For Corporate / Business customers. You guys will have a different line then regular customers do. This means you guys have a few different statutes then regular customers do. Also keep in mind for the past few years there has been issues / confusen about business customers getting the phones via the reservation. You guys will be getting them the day of launch or after depending on your status & what goes on.

Let's make this thread the only thread for the devices please and if you guys have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me and I'll gladly be able to helpSmiley Happy

So far, Apple, time is most likely 3am -- 12am Pacific time like last few years

Rogers-  well . few years back it was 3am, then last year 6am, so I think most likely 3am - 6am...

Hello @hendersonsarah

Good to see you too! 🙂

Last year was around 8am EST. A year before that was 6am. Telus does 3amEST. I am thinking around 5-8am EST to be honest.

I'm waking up at 6am regardless of what time the preorder starts.  Getting too old for early morning shenanigans.  

 

Can't believe this will be my 10th iPhone lol

Upon reveal of the new 7 I was shocked to find on the Rogers store that the price of the 6s plus 64GB has gone up 100$ !!! wut?

Hello @zerothree

Unfortunately that will happen within the next couple of days. Keep a look out on the Rogers site to see more information.

The prices hike up due to Apple. Apple controls the pricing for all the iPhones ever launched

makes sense meowmix.  Honestly I'm still a bit up in the air about upgrading.  Not much incremental benefit from the 6s as far as I can see.  Next year's model will be insane I think.

 

Thanks for moderating this discussion again this year!

Meow, your original post says

 

"Just to make it clear, reservations are for current Rogers wireless customers which have contracts with them. Rogers will put up the Pre order list for people that want to pre order the phone which have no wireless accounts with Rogers"

 

If you arent a current customer, is the Pre-Order a different process? Does it happen after the reservation upgrades?

 

Thanks

Hello @voodoo_ca

They put up the reservations for the ones that aren't with Rogers but wanted to switch over. It's the same process as the existing customers reservations BUT u can't see ur status.. That's the down fall. U will have to wait until you get a shipment email.

Sorry if this has already been asked but if my tab is all paid off and im eligible for an upgrade will it be cheaper to get the 7 through rogers then or am I better off just getting it through apple?

Hello @yobumchan

You will have to pay the sub pricing for the device on a 2 year term but no upgrade fee will be added.

Hey Guys

So checking the Best Buy website it seems the highest model iPhone 7 Plus 256GB Jet black will be $799 on a 2 year term. So is everyone willing to pay that much for a phone on a 2yrs term?. Crazy pricing...

 

iPhone 7 32GB - $399 (2yr term

iPhone 7 128GB -$529 (2yr term)

iPhone 7 256GB - $649 (2yr term)

iPhone 7 Plus 32GB - $549 (2yr term)
iPhone 7 Plus 128GB - $679 (2 yr term)
iPhone 7 Plus 256GB - $799 (2yr term)

iPhone 7 Plus pricing

Hey Meowmix,

 

"On a 2-year Premium+ Tab plan starting at $125.00 /month"

 

Is this true? This is what is says under the 6s and the Note 7? Will we need a minimum plan of 125?

Re: Apple IPhone 7 / 7 Plus Reservation numbers / Questions

Hello @darkdad

As long as ur plan is called Share Everything Plus plan or a Premium plan then you can upgrade without any issues. I would contact Rogers and speak to them about it.

@Meowmix

that best buy pricing is exactly what I was expecting.  $500 subsidy on every model with a 2 year term.  Exactly the same as last year.

Hello @nasa25

But $800 on a 2yr term for the 256GB? That's way out of most peoples pockets. It's getting crazy and expensive quick lol.

SO WHAT would you do ? buy outright or buy on contact?

Re: Apple IPhone 7 / 7 Plus Reservation numbers / Questions

nasa25

Yup I think its $1309 for that model from apple so you're actually getting an extra $9 subsidy by going that route lol.  Plus saving the tax on $509.

 

Buying that model unlocked from apple would be almost $1500 with tax

Hello @mattsatt

Thats a decision you need to make on your own. We can't decide for you. If i had that kinda money I would just buy it outright but thankfully I decided to go to another device which is cheaper and has the same features.

Hello @nasa25

This is getting disgusting with the pricing. Phones should not be that much. Talk about 1000% margin on the phone pricing. Lol.
