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!.
You make a good point Jampole the speaker sounds like a nice bonus... I have a logitech ue boombox and I love the sound of it.... so I don't see myself really using the bonus.
Another thing to consider, from what I heard, the phones that Apple gives out are unlocked and will work with any carrier. That is a benefit as well, plus I don't think I'll get the shipment until Mon-Tues from what I have been reading.
I'm probably gonna stick with Apple - if it would be possible I would love to pass on the rogers reservation to someone on this forum who's been patiently waiting - I would hate to have just given to the first walk-in. I'll re-post more info tomorrow once this all gets settled.
hi meowmix, just wondering , i reserved my iphone 6 plus through the business reservation, i'm 54/210. i'm kinda confused, some people are saying they are #300 in the qeue. I live in Edmonton btw, are those 210 devices being shipped throughout canada or to edmonton? not sure if i make sense
I was #520 in line for the gold 16gb 6 on rogers reservation. I went online at Apple at 12am and managed to reserve a 16gb Gold 6 at Apple store Yorkdale for pickup tomorrow. I stil have my $97 ECF to pay.. my plan is this: Go to rogers plus in Yorkdale and pay my ECF so i am no longer on contract. Go to the apple store right after and pickup my iphone 6 and sign the new contract on rogers. But I am wondering...does Apple supply me with a Rogers simcard to use with the 6? I am currently on Fido with an iPhone 5 and my mum is on Rogers with the iPhone 4s. She wants a 5 and doesnt care for an iPhone 6, so I am taking her upgrade with Rogers and we are basically switching carriers with each other.
Im 99% sure your phone will be at your rogers plus store the day after u receive the shipping notification txt ! Got my shipping notification txt last night and got a call today at 1PM. FYI I live in Vancouver so its still next day air from Ontario to B.C.!
P.S. Even if you get your phone from Apple, if you pay the subsidized price, it will still be locked to Rogers.
And I'm on Vancouver Island, BC... I got mine 2 days after shipping text but mine was sent to an authorized dealer... so had to go to their warehouse first and then the store... so 2 days is actually very good timing to get to an authorized dealer. Once that shipping text goes out it seems to take no time at all.
I see from another post that you were able to pick one up at Futureshop. I tried to do the same last nignt, but the system was down. Do you mind if I ask which FutureShop (or at least which province) you got it at?
