Once again i am making the iPhone Questions / Reservation thread!!!!! Apple just announced the new iPhone which is called iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus . The new iPhone's includes a bigger screen, different backing design, better camera & VoLTE & much much more. . 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 & or about the new iPhone . I would like to keep it as one thread & clean..I am sure getting the iPhone Plus !!!
1). Once Rogers has announce when they will add the iPhone 6 to the reservation list & the day comes, sign into your My Rogers account - Product & Services – Wireless & 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 6 / 6 Plus 16GB, 64G,128GB " & 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 below is the meaning of the statues .
- If your status is "OPEN", your reservation has been made and we are awaiting product from our supplier. At this time you can change your pick-up location, contact email address or cancel your reservation.
- If your status is "CANCELLED", your reservation has been cancelled and your reservation fee will be credited back to your account.
- If your status is "IN PROGRESS", we have begun the shipment process and you will not be able to edit or cancel your reservation any longer. The next email you will get will be the one that confirms shipment to the store you chose.
- If your status is "SHIPPED", your device has left our warehouse and is on its way to the store you chose. Keep in mind that you can NOT reserve a device via calling them. It can ONLY happen if the reservation system is down but they will to reserve it via online. Plus if you reserve it via phone, you will NOT see your status or know what number you are VS reserving it online.
2). 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 all the iPhone 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. Some of 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. You can also look for your FlexTab aka upgrade fee online via My Rogers or contact Rogers & they will let you know.
3). Also remember you are going to have to put down a $40 fee to reserve the device. Once it ships out, the $40 fee will be reversed back into your account. 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. The Reservation system is made to have a device reserved for you as the stores will be sold out. If your reservation status still says “ OPEN” after launch & a store has a device in stock, you can still go in the store & get it. Then come back home & cancel the reservation online. If the status is “ IN PROGRESS” & you get a device via a store that have one for u, you have to wait until it ships out & then tell the store that u picked u do not want it. Do reemember the reservation number is CANADA - WIDE. This means if lets say you are #45 in line for the black one, you are #45 for that GB , color & model Canada wide. Also keep in mine you have to be the account holder in order to pick up the device at the store. No one else can. You can try adding a family member as Level on the account but some stores will decline it.

4) .For Corporate / Business customers. You guys will have a different line then regular customers do. This means you guys have a few different statutes then regular customers do. Also keep in mind for the past few years there has been issues / confusen about business customers getting the phones via the reservation. You guys will be getting them the day of launch or after depending on your status & what goes on.
Pre orders will come out Friday Sept 12th & Launch date is Next Friday Sept 19th. I am sure Rogers will follow those orders. As for the device orders & which models Rogers will get. I am sure Rogers will get botboth models like they did last year.
Also the prices for both phones are different. So if you are going to get the iPhone 6 Plus, it will be much higher price then the iPhone 6. Rogers will announce the phone prices within either today or sometime before Friday!!!
Also remember please post anything related about iPhone 6 & 6 Plus in here please. I know this is a long thread 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 / thread). I will do my best like I have for the past 4 years of doing this to answer any questions you have about the reservations or device.
Here are both links from Apple for the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus. I know for sure i will be getting the iPhone 6 Plus!.
Going along with the Apple store inquiries,
On the US Apple store it currently gives you the options online to do a 2 yr contract. AND says prices starting at $199 or whatever it is.
On the Canadian, it says prices starting from $749 with no 2yr contract options.
I talked to an Apple employee and said that I could only do the contract at my service provider's store. But this does not sound right!
That is because Apple & the US carriers already set the price ahead before the announcement of the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus. The Canadian ones announce them like usual a few days after the announcement so they can get promotions & other little things ready for it.
No. Apple store can do upgrades as well but they are telling you to go to your carriers store because its easier & faster then waiting in line with thousands & if something happens, that Apple rep will need to contact Rogers & yeah. So if the Rogers store screw up lets say, its easier for them to do everything.
Rogers & the other Canadian carriers will announce the prices sometime this week. I am sure of this as they always have done it before the reservation & sometime a day after.
On the business account side of things, there is a device reservation tab. I am not sure if this is for all brands or a specific tab just created for the ^ launch. I tried loging into the business reserve system and it told me i had an invalid username. I logged into my business acount with my typical user name and password (worked fine), i then proceeded to chat with CS. they said, that since its too early(not the 12th), the system doesnt recognize any usernames. Is this correct? I dont want to wake up in the middle of the night or whenever the reservations start only to find that there is some sort of tech problem with my account. wouldnt be the first time the right hand doesnt know what the left is doing.
Which model and capacity will you pre-order on Friday or buy on September 19?
This PDF file when printed on standard 8.5″ x 11″ printer paper at 100% scale, will display the footprint of Apple’s current iPhone 5S alongside that of the larger 4.7″ iPhone 6 and the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus. It is best to print the PDF and then cut out the individual iPhone outlines so you can get a better idea of their size and how they feel in your hands, pockets or purse.
Rogers will open it up at 6:30-7am EST Friday morning. They never do it at midnight. That is only Apple & some other carriers that wish to do it. Last year it opened up at 6:30am EST. Mind you if everyone tries to go on at once, there will be a slow down time & you may need to refresh the page alot to see the phone on there.
