Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Hello Everyone!

 

 

 

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.

 

 

For frequently asked questions about the Rogers Reservation System, please click here Rogers Reservation FAQ

 

 

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!.

 

Thank you! Smiley Happy

Thanks. I hope that store isn't busy then. Long lines and kids do not mix well.

Why is it that Telus can tell you when your iPhone 6 is shipping yet Rogers is unable to do that?

Just spoke with rogers and for corporate here are the 2 plans that qualify.

 

$65

unlimited talk/text/pic and video msg
Voicemail and caller ID

500 minutes Canada wide long distance

3 GB data

 

$75

all the above with the following changes:

unlimited North america calling ( usa and canada)

5 GB data.

 

Makes no sense, better off just buying the phone.

 

My question is i have a reservation to pick up at rogers store, but since i will not be upgrading my plan, can i just buy the phone when i get there instead of upgrading? will the phone be unlocked since i am buying it out. If not will rogers unlock it, and will i be charged?

 

I know i can just buy it from apple, but my reservation looks like i will get it friday, while apple is 3-4 weeks out.

I will be amazed if you get it Friday. Or even this month.

@ThePunisher -- That's probably a 3 year plan, instead of 2 years. I believe corporate plans require the 3 years, which loses it's value to me.

So, rumor has it that the 6+ is in such low quantities that carriers may not get any for launch on Friday.

 

Fingers crossed, as I'm #233 right now for a 6+ 64 Grey, but it really is looking like next week.

For those upset about plan increases... My understanding is that the plan HAS TO increase to adjust for your new FlexTab amount. (As Rogers is not in the business of selling $1,000 phones for $500). They have to recoup the money... And these are the most expensive smart phones in history.

For example:
iPhone 6 Plus 64 GB (Seems to be the most popular)
Outright = $969.00
With 2 Year Contract = $484.99
* Remember Rogers is not giving you the phone for half price. You will still end up paying the same amount as someone who buys it outright.

this means you got a discount of $484.01.
Divide that by 24 Months (2 Year Contract)
You get $20.17

Your bill HAS TO go up by at least that amount to reapay your phone over 2 years.

Either this is correct, or I completely misunderstand FlexTab.

Manny, they aren't 3 year plans.

@oramgefreddie...

They are making enough to pay for the phone and then some... this doesn't include the actual phone bills for the 2 years.

No, it does not restore it to last backup. It restores it to stock and then does the upgrade which is cleaner then doing a straight upgrade. Just click backup first before you do it and then it will restore and automatically upgrade and then once thats done, it gives you the choice to set it up as a new ipad or from a saved backup.

its province dependent the reason why manitoba/sask has nearly the same plans as before is cause theres a 4th competitor in both provinces, the regular big 3 + mts for mb, & sasktel for sk, & our provincial carriers are at the same lower price with more data which is why the big 3 must match, or theyll get zero customers in those provinces

@501joe... The business rep I spoke to 2 days ago told me corporate plans have to be on a 3 year plan to get the discount...

But you know Rogers, each rep says something different. I asked if she was sure it's 3, not 2 and she said yes.

#438 for 64GB 6+ Space Grey.

I have a feeling I will be picking up my phone in October 😞

64GB 6 Plus seems to be the most popular, and have the most limited stock.

Of course this is all speculation and I'm just riding the roller-coaster of emotions eagerly anticipating my new iPhone 😄

There is an corporate plan for employees where I work - I talked to our corporate rep a couple of days ago and their plan is 3gb, unlimited nationwide calling, unlimited text etc and a discount for calls to US. It $60 and if you want 5gb then it is $70. Both plans are two years. Once I upgrade my phone I'm going to switch over to a corporate plan. I didn't want to lose my #34 6+ spot. It will be about $30 cheaper to move both my lines over than the 6gb share promo that they will let me keep.

Just talked with a Rogers representative and was offered (corporate plan):

 

However, Telus are offering $400 for business clients (http://cambridgeelectronics.ca/400-telus-credit-for-rogers-business-customers), and their 2 year plan is (if I remember correctly):

 

Any thoughts?
