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!.
Hehe yeah life is just unfair.
Oh well I guess I'll just have to live with the embarrasment of my archaic phone for another few days/weeks/months now. But at least I'll really appreciate it when I get it. Everyone with a 5S will be like "Yeah it's a big bigger, but is about the same thing really" where as I'll be "Wow this is a thing from the future, probably from space. I can actually open the camera and not miss the tortoise race that has just gone past me - again"
And just for the record, who ever decded it was a good idea to make a phone out of glass? The most fragile material know to man and beast
Everyone should cancel there order with Rogers directly. They wont have any 6plus in stock for tomorrow. If you reserve it from future shop or best buy and they don't get your phone in tomorrow they will give you $50 off and 20% off any accessories.
Thats customer service!!!. I checked with the kennedy store and they have over 200 phones in stock for tomorrow.
In all honesty I dont mind 16gb yes I would of preferred 32 but as for games I dont really olaynon my phone and for pics and video it doesn't bother me uploading them to my computer time and time again..m as for music I use my HTC one which I will use solely for music in my car or whatever so I'm good I guess it goes with preference..... On another note I have my brothers number on the account as we share a joint account... I tied to see for s. And giggles what position itbwoukd give me if I reserved live at for 64gb 6plus space grey it was position 3660! Obviously I cancelled it!..... Mine is still at position #36, iPhone 6 plus, 16gb, space grey status open!! I'm gonna give my Rogers plus store a call this afternoon and see if I can get any info out of them... I'm seriously debating just going there tomorrow and straight up be like I'm here to pick up my reservation and if they have anything to say I'll just be like well I get promised status updates! And if your gonna actually tell me that at the biggest Rogers store in Montreal you won't have my #36 (which is all of Canada for Rogers)
Im just giving great advise to those of you who will not be getting a phone tomorrow. If you want to save money buy from future shop or best buy. They guarantee stock or will pay you $50 bucks. Call the stores yourself. They have tons of stock and you dont have to wait in line or wait 3-4 weeks like you will with rogers plus stores. Rogers reservation is great thats why not 1 single persons status has changed for the 6plus.
