Wondering how long it will take? Wheni preordered on first preorder date my iphone 7 plus black 128 gb was #706 currently sitting at #414, i also preorder a iphone 7 plus rose gold 128gb and was at #221 now at 86.
I called Apple they told me it was best to order from them directly cause i would likely get it faster because they take care of their customers first. I said arent i an apple customer regardless where it comes from? I was insulted.
I can't blame Rogers for not getting enough phones in, its all on Apple. They clearly did not make enough. However Rogers was telling me that it could take 6 weeks to 3 months for my black one and one to two weeks for the rose gold. I think they must have thought i was talking jet black, but it is the matte black, there is no way being #414 as of today that it would take 6 weeks to 3 months would it?
Question - When I try to reserve online with Apple, it's telling me that I need to pay via credit card. I will be a new client of Rogers and was expecting to put in on the tab. How do I proceed? Are the phones from Apple only unlocked?
Also, I am number 113 for an iPhone 7+ 128 GB Black and I ordered on launch date an iPhone 7+ 128 GB JB. Rogers already charged me for the phone I ordered via telephone on launch date and said that I will not be receiving it till 6 weeks to 4 months but yet they already charged me for it.
Had my grubby mitts on a 7+ Matte Black 128gb phone in Apple's reservation system a couple of minutes ago for pickup at Metrotown, and then poof it was gone once I clicked continue to confirm the time chosen to pickup.
So close and yet so far.
Still #116 (started at 185) for Jet Black 7+ 128gb on Rogers reservation.
I have a question. Would Rogers automatically cancel my place in line for my JB reservation if I were to do a carrier ugrade in an Apple store? I'm thinking of Silver instead now because of the wait but would like to keep my reservation spot in case I decide I don't like the color and to return it (most likely will end up happening)
Also, does anybody know if Apple completely opens up the phone when done through Rogers upgrade or would it be sealed? I would also like to ask them NOT to activate the sim card also.
I managed to reserve a 7 Plus 256 GB Black (Matte) earlier today (12:30 EST) at the Ste-Catherine store in Montreal. I went to pick it up and one of the employees told me they still had one in stock, but the website showed "out of stock".
I think it's available right now I just checked. Get it fast, it could be gone by now! I suggest you guys check during the day, they get new phones during the day, and you need to be lightning fast to reserve one in the morning.
To help you guys reserving faster on the Apple store, I'll share a tip. When the reservations are about to start in the morning, go on the Apple website to reserve with a carrier. Select a store (Usually, there's always one that's already open for reservations). Select it and choose whichever phone, size, color, etc (It doesn't matter which, because you won't be reserving this one, obviously). Click Next. You will be granted by a login screen (Apple ID, Password) followed by two-step authentication, if you have an iPhone. Login to continue with the "reservation". The final screen should be about confirming time of pickup. When you reach this screen, click away and go back to the phone reservation's initial page (Where you select the store, phone, color, size, etc). From there, just refresh the page until the reservations for your store open. For me, they opened at 8:01AM every morning. DO NOT close your browser at this point, or you will lose your connection and you will have to login again with your Apple ID - Also, it's possible that the connection drops automatically if you leave your computer logged in to the Apple website for too long. I suggest doing this process 5-10 minutes before the reservations open (It didn't happen to me, but it could happen).
By doing this, you won't have to login with your Apple ID at confirmation AND won't have to go through the two-step authentication.
It was nice reading through all the replies, and I hope you guys get your iPhones really soon. See you all next year/in two years 🙂
Sounds like Oct 8th there may be a whole lot more inventory available (at least in the Apple stores). Seems a very large shipment of the phones has been caught up with a bankrupt shipping line, and Apple is making arrangements for their cargo to be offloaded.
