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!.
If anyone is interested Future Shop has never received any 6+, but you can pre-order and receive a $50 Store Credit + $50 Rogers Bill Credit that is far better than the crappy Speakers being offered here. You have to do the ordering at the store and not online, bit there is really a small wait involved of about 10-15 people to complete the application. Not sure of how long I need to wait for delivery, but the $$$ is tempting even if this involves waiting a few weeks longer.
i can't believe that Best Buy had walk in 6plus today. i kick myself for not checking, didn't think they would. they even have on on display!!
can't fathom how i waited up seven days ago to order and show i wanted one, but some shmo can walk in and get one care free. blah. the 6plus is very nice though, have been waitng for a large size ios for so long. makes the wait harder. i hope rogers gets their shipping team together for a Saturday delivery. if not why did we bother pre ordering and why does rogers both having the reservation system.
they might have been better off just sending them to stores and we wait their for walk ins. no one in my mall except Apple had 6pluses, so thats ok i suppose. just best buy down the road. i went at 9am to look for a case and they had walk ins in plus they told me, but no more. of course!
And rogers screws me over again!
I had an iphone 6+ 64gb grey reservation #9 in line. I called to talk about my plan the rep told me that the best deal would be to move my number under my wifes account as (she was #18 for a 6 64 silver) she had a "targeted promotion on her acct"
I asked specifically if moving my number would affect my reservation she said "no reservations are attached to phone number not acct # you reservation will be transfered as well" i said great ill talk to my wife and call back. i did call back with another question and that opperator confirmed the same as the last. then last night I called in to change the plans and was told a third time "reservations are attached to phone number not acct #'s" so i made the change. today no reservation! and a more expensive plan with less data than we had before!
so i guess everyoe looking for a 6+ grey 64gb just jumped ahead a position.
the supervisor i spoke to did offer to create a new reservation and told me it would only take several weeks so that makes me feel much better
Just went to my local rogers store at 10am. I was the only person in there for 20minutes. Was so dead there! They had tons of iphone 6's too. I was able to get the space grey in 64gb :). I need to cancel my 16gb preorder now but myrogers is down ..
LOL.. I doubt they would look at the "notes"
The rep couldve changed the colour when they noticed it.. thats what they did for me..
Has anyone in business with a plus get a status change?
#1 for 6 64GB Silver, no update since Sept 12
