How is the numbering/wait-list set-up anyway? Is the wait list store specific or it's giving an overall number throughout all Rogers stores. My number is going down one-by-one and I am wondering if they're only getting 1 device at a time.
I am currently at #10 for my 7+ 256GB Matte Black! (Business account)
Yes, it has to be cancellations. In my case, if I don't get it in the next two weeks I will have to cancel the reservation as I have a big trip ahead. Do you guys know how long they keep it in the store after receiving it? Do you lose the reservation fee if it goes to the store but you are not there to pick it up?
Also, I understand that estimates are difficult to make... but they do still help if they include it when they think they will receive the next batch. It looks to me that they allocate devices to reservations in batches so they do have some control on the estimates.
If we had as much information as the logistic channels of Rogers the wait would feel so much better... That's my opinion anyways.
Stores are getting phones ahead of the reservation list. That is way reservation list is broken.
You arewiating on 7+ 256GB Matte Black - my store had 2 of these in stock last weekend and anyone could walk in and get it. I wanted same but 128G. They did a store serach and found one in a store in next city (20min away). They held it and I got it last Sat. Then I cancelled my reservation (was at 21) and got depostit back.
Rogers should fullfil reservation list before sending out open stock to stores.
Rogers you have Failed.
but 2 weeks at #2 - i mean come on - that's laughable.
rogers shoudl just own up to how this reservation system works (or doesn't) and be al ittle more transparent.
what is the point of it if they ship some devices for walk ins? did the walk ins provide a $40 deposit? were they ever given the impression that the reservation system was going to give them prefered access to the phone? NOPE.
This is part of the problem - stores should not get them if there are people waiting on a wait list.
I was on wait list from day 1, ended bypassing this by being a 'walkin' to a store that I found had the phone I had orderred (7+ MB 128Gig).
I should not have to run around to find my new phone when it is reserved.
BTW - I am only talking about Rogers not how Apple sells to in many customers. To repeat above, if Apple sends 1000phones to Rogers, and Rogers has 1000 people on the list and has 1000 stores. the 1000 people should be served first - hence the reservation, and stores get 0.
Well then this is the last time I am ever going on the registration system. It's ridiculous and honestly what's the point of it all then if the phones go nilly-willy all over the place? What's the benefit of even being on the reservation system?
Of course it is my choice. Much like it is my choice to ditch Rogers one day when I get fed up with their horrible plans, horrible web site (that only works about 60% of the time), and this joke of a reservation system.
What's your take on what the benefits of reserving via rogers would be?
