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!.
Well Mission Accomplished!! I LOVE IT... I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!!!
Despite all the MyRogers, systems and reservations issues, I managed to squeak through relatively unscathed. The phone actually arrived yesterday at launch, but i decided to avoid the mayhem and calamity and just waited until today to pick it up. I somehow managed to show up first in line at the Toronto Yorkdale Mall location and luckily managed to get everything done and walk out by 10AM, a hair before the systems crashed again. I overheard a couple of agents tell other people they couldn't proceed and to come back in a few hours. So Very lucky for sure.
I don't have anything good to say about the MyRogers thing and the ability to stay on top of the reservation, I know a lot was happening over the network, but I think maybe some level of greater anticipation or preparedness was needed by Rogers, in the face of what was surely to come. Anyhow for me in the end I did get all the emails as they promised, was able to track it through UPS, and was able to make all of the needed account changes, and it did arrive at launch. All of the agents, both at the store and on the phone were fantastic, despite the hiccups. So overall Im a happy camper
This will likely be my last post on this thread so just wanted to thank everyone out there for sharing all news and info, especially to MeowMix. Great Job there again and hope to see you there for sure on all the future releases to come 🙂
went to a rogers plus store where my reserved 6 128gb was waitying....
systems were down... stopped by an hour and a bit later... same thing...
he said he'd call me when they were back up, as I live 2 minutes from there.. but still nothing
What the ... ahhh
Guys, I need some help.
Here's my situation: I am number 25 nationwide for a silver 128gB iPhone 6+. My status has ALWAYS showed up as "open". I started off at number 28: I have always amongst the first. My only hope as of now is that Rogers gets a new batch of iPhones on Monday. However: will they get my model? Will they even get iPhone 6+'s? Unfortunately, me thinks not (slowly losing hope).
I therefore have 2 options as of now. I have no contract whatsoever with Rogers, I just moved to Montreal and am depending on a pay as you go plan:
1) Order through Apple. Question though: can I pay my 6+ $594? Or can I only buy it unlocked ($1079)?
2) Switch from Rogers to Bell/Telus etc etc... However, I have no idea on how their stock/network is.
What should I do? I haven't even started my contract with Rogers and already feel horrible ... Is it worth waiting longer in hope of one day seeing my iPhone 6+ pop up?
