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

Meowmix,

Boy am I happy I got lucky and got my phone at an Apple store....still in progress....I understand they are maybe trying to save money to do bigger shipments at once but for something like this and long enough delay already, they should ship them out faster....shame on Rogers lol

Anyone know when the next batch will come in (so that another group will go into In Progress? I am probably going to be part of said group as I'm currently 54 Open for my 128 GB 6+ in SG).

@writergal based on what I've read in the past, it seems that rogers get their bigger shipments Thursday and people seem to flip status during Thursday and Friday.

Wow!

Did I luck out..

 

After getting a 6 64 space grey reserved at Apple store in Richmond on friday,

Then calling *611 to ensure they could process my upgrade for my business acct(one that didn't need a MDS or MSD code) and being told that the Apple store could do it,

THEN calling the Apple store to ensure they could, only to find out they couldn't BUT they called Rogers to find out why and called me back later(very nice guy at APlle did that),

...And they said Rogers told them "after looking into it, that Apple would not be able to process the upgrade for me."

..BUT the Rogers employee understood there seemed to be unusual circumstances blocking my acct(for some reason everyone got stuck when looking up my acct with my postal code) he found one at a corporate Rogers store that the store manager said he would hold for me....

Voila, new iPhone 6 64 GB grey in my hands since friday and I am only 3 spots ahead in the reservation system.

 

Really tho, I will stick with Rogers because of my "unusual circumstances" helping in this case, somehow.

I must say good luck to all of you. Godspeed

Anyone in or around the Kitchener area......

I have a 6 Plus 64Gb SG coming in on reservation this week. I don't want it. If you want it and Rogers will allow someone else to take it, it's yours for the taking. Just let me know if you want it.

I would much rather someone from reservation get it than a walk in.

Hello pleum21

@pleum21

Everyone I know who has either iPhone either put a case on it or a skin (I've already preordered one from nuvango.com) to make it less slippery.

I like that case too, guess I have to hold on tight!

Hello pleum21

I have almost dropped it to many times without the case. Its that slippery. Apple should have added something on the back to not make it that slippery. That is why i am putting into a case lol

Well, it must be my lucky day! I manage to snag a 128 gb iPhone plus dark gray from the Apple Store in Waterloo at 2:30 online at pineapple. It was so worth the drive (1hr) and the entire transaction was quick and seamless from start to finish! I even got to use my Rogers points, and Apple gave me more $ for my old phone than what Rogers quoted me! I would suggest that before anyone claims their iPhone they set up their account first with the best possible deal u can get from customer service/retention to make things smooth and quick. I am declining my 64 plus gold that is in progress with Rogers. I just don't have much faith in Rogers reservation anymore. Btw- I absolutely love the phone (not my first choice of colour- but I can live with that!) as of now, my phone reservation is still in progress from last Thursday... Sigh. Thxs to meow, ur thread was fantastic and full of great suggestions and made the waiting easier! Good luck guys!

I've Been Here Awhile

Rogers corporate/business account holder here and preordered an iPhone 6 16GB Space Grey on September 12th.  The status has been In progress (Pre Fulfillment) since day one and my original position was #64.  As of today I am position #34 with no change in status.  Have any other corporate/business account holders recieved their preordered device?  

 

In the past I've reserved as a regular consumer account holder and jumped through hoops to get Rogers to hardware upgrade my corporate/business account on launch day.  Thought it was best to do it straight through the business reservation site this time and save my self some headaches but starting to get a little impatient at this point.
