Seeing as Apple already announced the new iPhone which is called iPhone 5S & 5C, this thread will be where you need to post questions & even your reservation numbers once Rogers announces it & puts it up. Please do NOT make another thread about reservation & all. I would like to keep it as one thread & clean..
Once Rogers has announce when they will add the iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C to the reservation list & the day comes, sign into your My Rogers account - Overview & 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 5S /5C 16GB, 32GB, 64GB" & & the color of the device you want. 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, Once the reservation goes into “IN PROGRESS” status, you can NOT change the device or store you picked. You will need to cancel the reservation & start all over again. You will lose the number you are at as well. The Status will stay “OPEN” Until Rogers start shipping them out. Last year they started shipping them out 2-3 days before the launch. The stores will get them either at launch or a day before. You can NOT get the device until release. The store will call you & let you know it’s at the store. Most likely Rogers will be sending out around 70-200 phones first & then the rest out. Depends on if they change it up this year
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 the iPhone 4 / 4S & iPhone 5 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. 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.
Also remember you are going to have to put down a $40 fee but once the device gets shipped. 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.
Also the prices for the new iPhone 5S $ 5C prices on a 2 year term & outright price will be as followed:
iPhone 5S 16GB : $199 Outright will be $719
iPhone 5S 32GB: $299 Outright will be $819
iPhone 5S 64GB: $399 outright will be $919
It will be available in white, black and gold.
iPhone 5C 16GB - $99 Outright price will be $599
iPhone 5C 32GB - $199 Ouright price will be $719
It will be available in white, yellow, red, blue and green.
Also remember please post anything related about iPhone 5S & 5C in here please. I know this is a huge thing to read, but read it before asking multiple questions in which have been already answered in this post ( if they have been answered on this post).
Meowmix, as far as you saying to search the web for iphone 5s availability it's not a Rogers issue, well read http://bgr.com/2013/11/26/iphone-5s-christmas-shopping/
Basically US carries have 98-99% 5s availability now.
Rogers had no excuse for this business backlog.... Enough passing blame around this is a Rogers problem....
I've read pages upon pages of this forum before I decided to post. I'm sure this will be more about 'venting' rather than a question, but, I ordered an iPhone 5s (Space Grey/16gig) on Tuesday and was positioned around 2600 (In progress Pre Fulfillment). Today when I logged in to check my status I was #2786 out of 2975. I also received an update from Rogers via e-mail that said "Position #2786 out of 497". What is the 497 referring to?
I've read that many people are still waiting for their reserved devices but am wondering if things are picking up in Canada (as I hear the States are slowly but surely getting sufficient stock)? Thanks very much for any insight or stories of people getting their iPhone(s) delivered !
Thanks in advance!
