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!.
I now understand the Quebec contract thing some people was asking.
When you upgrade to an iPhone 6, you HAVE to switch to a Share Everything plan. Wich is minimum 75$/month for 2GB and pretty much unlimited on everything (Text messages, Calling etc.). And then 80$ for 4GB and 5$ more for every 2GB I think.
3) If you want that new iphone 6 unlocked because you paid full price for it, you must wait 90 days before you can unlock it.
If you have bought your iPhone outright the carrier is required by Law to unlock it with no wait period. If you do have a subsidy they are required by Law to unlock it after the 90 days on the new contract.
That is correct. If you paid full price for the iPhone 6 via Rogers, they have to immediately unlock it for u for a fee of $50.
If you get the iPhone 6 on a contract then you must wait 90 days to unlock it via Rogers for $50
Here is some information for my Manitoba People.
Just got back from the Rogers store which my iPhone 6+ will be delivered to. (I'm currently 345 Open)
Wanted to talk to someone about my plan changing, here's what I got.
-I will have to switch to a Share Everything Plan
-It will be $50 (Unlimited Calling and Text in Canada)
-$5 for 2GB data
-$10 for 5GB
-Visual Voice mail is an additional $5
Therefore my plan will be cheaper than what I have now. BONUS!
Also talked about trading in my iPhone 5. Lady said, "Yeah you might get $75-$100. I then showed her the trade up offer I received which I did through the website on my device which was later emailed to me. It was a trade in offer of $175.00. She seemed quite surprised by that, however I had documentation which included the offer number I was assigned.
I asked if I could pay off my current flextab today, rather than having it on my next invoice. Answer was no. Flextabs are invoiced.
My plan is to sell my iPhone 5 after receiving my 6+. We talked about unlocking it. She said I would have to call the customer support number and they guide you through the unlocking process. The charge for this service is $50.00 which also gets added on to your next invoice if you decide to unlock it. I want to unlock it so that way when I sell it, the person who buys it can decide which carrier they want to use. If I sell it and don't unlock it, the purchase of my Iphone 5 MUST use Rogers.
My departing words were, "See you on Friday." She said, "There's a queue you know." I said, "Yeah, I know, see ya Friday....haha"
Anyway, have read about the outrageous plan prices from others and wanted to get this our for all my MB friends who were wondering.
and those who liked my little rant.
oh and @aj85.... don't get so butthurt. Its a forum.
I'm sure a lot of the people here will not be found again after they get their iPhone in their hands, me included, well acutally I think I come here to find out if Rogers cable/internet is down.
I hope you people that reserved the 6+ get some kind of notice. And if any of you guys do follow Apple via sites like Gizmodo or Macrumors you should know know already that they had issues fulfilling D-Day orders. So don't be too surprised if you don't get any confirmation or status changes this week.
I too was on the fence about getting the 6 over the 6+. But after deliberation and my constant use of my ipadMini I didn't feel I needed such a hulking phone. And from the review from Gizmodo it does seem too big. I was never a fan of Galaxy sized phones. Its like were taking steps backwards. I remember wanting a Nokia 8210 because it was so small and compact. Now people want phablets. Not that its a bad thing but to me personally it isn't practical to have such a large phone. Again, IMO.
Is this true for iPhone 6's as well, or just the 6+? Mine has said in progress (pre-fulfillment) since the moment I reserved, and my position in queue has only moved up a few notches throughout the days (due to people cancelling one at a time).
It wouldn't be a panic, but it would be a disappointment. It's amazing to me how badly companies still underestimate consumers. It's not like this is Apple's first release, and it's the biggest update the iPhone has ever had....
