Ive been following this forum since the pre order day. I too believed in the Rogers Reservation system, like many of you. I got sick and tired of waiting so I decided to go to the apple store and was able to pick up a 7+ Matte Black 128GB. I had a corporate account but had them switch it to a consumer account with a corporate discount on. Went to the apple store and they had no problem issuing me the phone with my plan. All they required was my corporate email. I probably spent longer waiting in line then I did for the activation to go under my plan.
funny thing is even the apple rep was making jokes saying " oh you reserved through rogers? You'll probably get it for Christmas 2018"
I am really disappointed with Rogers and their lack of professionalism, not even telling their own reps information is ridiculous.
anyways do your self a favour and go to the Apple store !
I too can confirm the ridiculous business practise Roger employes with those of us with corporate codes.
After 2 cancellations and being rejected at Apple because they can't "service corporate customers" I was able to get my matte 32gb from a ROGERS STORE.
The two stores I walk by in downtown Vancouver had 128gb jet blacks in STOCK, albeit only 1 at the time.
I held it in my hands before I decided 128GB is not worth it for me.
This was after another store sold me a DEMO iphone 7 plus also.
The answers I got 3 times from different reps on the phone line when I complained why corporate plan holders had to wait extra long in a queue line that's different was "because you guys on corporate codes have amazing phone plans".
EDIT: I was in corporate queue forever and was promised it would be escalated because of all this and got an email saying I'm #246 out of #246. For those of you that really want it now, call your local stores every day, that's how I got mine
noticed a bunch of canadian apple stores with 7 plus 128 GB jet blacks today so hopefully we see some reservation movements on those today. if you look at istocknow.com, there's some in eastern canada with stock as I write this, but it'll probably be gone in a jiffy.
Hey charles1977, the downtown rogers stores were the Pacific Center one and the one on Robson and Seymour. Those two stores seem like the stores with the most inventory allocation. On the other hand I believe the on Broadway & Arbutus gets good allocation too.
I have order a mate black iPhone 7 through the rogers reservation system, but I have been waiting for two weeks now and I'm not moving in the queue! (started at 1000 and got to 820 in two weeks!)
I would like to upgrade my device and as such get the discounted price, but I was wondering, can I get it directly from the apple store and cancel my reservation without having to pay the retail price? or do I need to wait until the reserved device comes?
Thanks so much in advance! probably this questins has been answered before but I coudln't find the answer.
seems like apple stores across the country have been getting in I7+ jet black 128gb
shows one store in Quebec city has one in stock as im writing this.
and my reservation went from #12 earlier this afternoon to position #2 now
so crossing my fingers that rogers is sending them out and its not due to cancellations
When you get a confirmation email on the bottom theres a link to see the progress and cancel your reservation
