Still 0 movement on my phones. Just reserved a 128GB gold 7+ for pickup after school today. Called + confirmed my apple store does carrier upgrades, confirmed with Rogers that doing a HUP as an authorised user at the apple store works (and have proof - live chat) so I am good to go.
See you later Rogers reservation system.
thanks @orangefreddie! Your story gives hopes to those few of us who are still clinging on. The only reason I'm still with Rogers is because I have an amazing plan (Share Everything 10gb with premium Spotify and roam like home - 40% corporate discount, so comes up to around 65/70$ per month)
Today at 5PM will mark the 48hours deadline I was given. I will keep you posted! Funny enough to say, even though I haven't been escalated yet, I started at position #538 out of 538 when I was "reinstated" in the NRS, and I am now #473 out of 617. That's 65 spots down, and I was initially #57. If only it was done properly I would have properly received my phone by now lol
I went down from 94 to 80 for a 128 gb rose gold 7 plus on the business side and was so excited haha. I do hate the waiting game but I do like the excitement behind it. The status of my black 128 gb plus is unkown since it was a new line activation which sucks but oh well! For now I will live vicariously through the lucky ones that are getting their phones.
i'm really hoping we see some movement today. i was trying to get my hands on a 7+ black 128 via apple this morning, logged in at 8:01am, there was some at Sherway Gardens and Square One...reserved via Sherway, and as soon as i put in my apple id and password, it told me to re-choose a store as Sherway didn't have any left already.... . people with quick fingers!!! (i was doing it all on my phone so a little slower than it would have been with my laptop, but i was at work and nothing else i could do)
i dropped one spot from this morning, probably from a cancellation from all the available phones at the apple stores this morning
question @Meowmix, i noticed some people are saying they are in x spot out of x in total....how do we see that? mine only says 113 and open, it doesn't tell me how many are in total
I am currently #117 and #121 for two &+ JB.
On day of initial reservation I was #159 and #169.
Does anyone have even a rough estimate on timeline? Christmas? New Year?
Nobody can say for sure.
I'm #13 in line, and my original expectation was mid-October the earliest. I think Apple will just take care of their stores first. You'll probably have more luck finding one through their reservation system in November.
@jeffrey_mtl there was a bunch of 7+'s this morning as soon as the apple system opened...but you had to be super quick to get them. i logged in at 8:01 and by the time i had to put in my apple id and password, all my local stores were out already (im in the GTA)
