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

#441 for 7+ 32gb Matte Black. It is what it is... it will arrive someday, lol. Then I will take the black. "Night gathers, and now my watch begins".... I had way too much coffee so far!

 

Happy for those who got, or are expecting to receive later today, what they ordered.

 

On a side note, I've often been on the critical end of Rogers, but after nearly 25 years with them (grandfathered customer from Maclean-Hunter...bet you haven't heard that name in decades!), i'm impressed how customer service and retail staff have been with me. This could easily have been a bad experience, but they're handling my particular case very well.

Hello @werwerggdfh

Who knows but it all solely depends on stock from Apple now.

Hello @Th1ef

They are told to say that to the clients now. I don't know why but they have. My best bet is that hey think Apple will take longer seeing as it shows November on the Apple site..

It's actually funny, APPLE released a brand new flagship phone in a new colour and are using it in all their advertising and they dont produce enough? It's not like they are going to over produce phones and realize they can't get rid of them.

FML

Rep is also claiming a 2-4 week wait period for all other colours but it seems that the other colours are not as difficult to come by as people are getting shipping notices left right and center.

Ooouh! So my rogersdirect reservation (the backup plan) got "Escalated", then a few minutes later got changed to "In progesss" (real deal). Looks like since they cancelled my original "consumer" reservation they bumped up my backup plan. Sounds good to me!

 

My original reservation was a JB and my backup was a matte black, so they probably set me up for the matte black... But I seriously don't care.


I was one of the people who got their myRogers reservation cancelled due to a corporate discount. I went on Rogers Direct and ordered myself, then called to follow up. My order was also changed to 'escalated' today - but still 'In Progress (Pre-Fufillment)' - I guess that's better than nothing!

Yes I understand that I'm thinking the first batch of jet black will come out next week. There's no way it's going to take months....

Always set the bar super high for customer expectations so when you produce the productnquicker you look like a superstar.

Hello @Th1ef

On the Apple site, Telus site and other carriers sites it shows 4-6 week wait for some models of the Plus in all colors.

Rogers is now telling me my phone reservation was cancelled because I qualified as a 'business' account since there was a Ryerson University code on my account (FROM 10 years ago!) and this is considered an internal employee purchase. 

 

Never happened in 10 years though until now! What the?

For anyone that wants a non-jet black phone I suggest start calling Best Buy mobiles I am confident you will be able to get one today.... Jet black don't even bother ...

How did you get that?! I've been still at #26 on the business side since day one with nothing happening.

got wet waiting for nothing, purolator even showed up delivering phones 3 mins before they opened, no pluses in any color any size, go figure.. the guy says NOVEMBER for non reserved people. says reserved phones are being shipped now, ya well i been #2 since day one for matte black 32gb 7+, im STILL #2 and STILL "OPEN"

 

utter garbage, exactly as i expected. the other carriers always go faster than the biggest one, rogers. every year. every, time. better not be weeks on weeks before something crawls to them, my previous phone is going to be worth nothing on kijiji by then.

 

this is sad. how many years now are like this? idk like EVERY SINGLE ONE? whats so hard about producing and shipping EARLIER, apple? rogers?

Once again screwed by Rogers.

I have a corporate discount through work. So my original order was cancelled and switched to the business side.

Finally talked to someone who said my device wouldn't be shipped until I changed my plan, as mine has expired. WHAT?

I had to contact them to figure this out. So after staying up until 3am to order, having that cancelled and switched and the people after me recieving their device, I now have to change my plan and then WAIT! Are you KIDDING ME?

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

@Th1ef Feel your pain! I was at the Apple Sherway Gardens this morning and it looks amazing. Fingerprint/scuff nightmare, but nonetheless, gorgeous (always bring Purell when handling demo phones!).

 

I'm interested in supplychain management (I was in charge or buying 3rd party products for a "somewhat well-known" retailer in Canada) and this really gives us some insight into Apple's forecasting system, and it's flaws. Gauging demand is not an exact science, but I would expect better given they're worth something like $725 billion. I'm assuming their production is based on forecasted demand from previous years' sales; the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus both had lower unit sales than the 4.7" versions (at least according to the data I was able to quickly pull). 

 

Also, they have 28 different iPhone 7 SKUs! (5 colours, 4.7" and 5.5", and 3 storage options - 2 in jet black). I guess they REALLY didn't forecast this properly. Really, they brought this on themselves.

 

They probably could have over produced, but the 6s generation was overstocked. They probably discounted the cost to their retail partners to sell through them, which would retailers overstocked on inventory that will be hard to move once the 7 generation became available for sale.

 

I know it's no comfort to you. My strategy for iPhone 7s and 8 is to become friends with a Rogers or Apple Store employee to secure one lol.

Hello @inferno129

Not all carriers got Plus models and most of them got only silver or Gold if that...

I csnt say what's going on but this time it's not only Rogers fault.

Hello @Dimundz88

Hello @thesixfile

Even if u do, they won't secure one for u Sadly lol. I tried that I am close friends with the Apple store manager at the Eatons center and a few Rogers reps as well.. They can lose their jobs for hiding a phone or securing one for someone else other then customers waiting to get one. It's on their contracts they sign when they get the job lol

I'm Here A Lot
My iPhone 7 128gb Black just reached in Progress (finalization) I'm in Toronto and a corporate customer. Does this mean shipping soon or tomorrow? Anyone know how long it takes from this stage to shipping? Does this mean there is a phone with my name on it already and it's just waiting to be sent?
