Apple iPhone 6S & 6S 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 6S & iPhone 6S Plus . The new iPhone's includes a 3DTouch, 13MP back new isight camera, rose gold color &  much much more. . This thread is the offical thread for the iPhone 6S / 6S Plus for customers which have any questions or need answers!  Rogers will put up the pre order list for customers 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 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 mind 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 1 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 Saturday Sept 12th & Launch date is Friday Sept 25th. I am sure Rogers will follow those orders. As for the device orders & which models Rogers will get. I am sure Rogers will get both models like they did last year.

 

Also the prices for both phones are different. So if you are going to get the iPhone 6S Plus, it will be much higher price then the iPhone 6S. Rogers will announce the phone prices within either today or  sometime before Friday!!! The prices are the same as last year from what Apple said!. 

 

 

Also remember please post anything related about iPhone 6S & 6S 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 5 years of doing this to answer any questions you have about the reservations or device.

 

IOS 9 will be available Sept 16th on your current Apple device!

 

Here are both links from Apple for the iPhone 6S & iPhone 6S Plus. I know for sure i will be getting the iPhone 6S Plus!.

Here is more information about the new iPhone 6S & 6S Plus!

 

 

  • 3D Touch, force-sensing technology that adds new gestures “peek” and “pop,” which bring up modal windows and things hidden under panes.
  • A9 processor promising 70% increase on A8 speed and 90% faster graphics (“console class”), enabling games to offer all sorts of special effects and frame rates better than A8.
  • M9 motion coprocessor, always on, along with always-on Siri.
  • Second-generation Touch ID, twice as fast as before.
  • All new 12MP iSight camera. 50% more pixels than before, more accurate autofocus. They decided they would not add pixels over the 6/6 Plus camera until they wouldn’t compromise image quality. 4K video support has been added, as well.
  • New 5MP FaceTime HD camera, including “Retina Flash” (screen) with True Tone ability. Screen can light up three times brighter than usual for this.
  • Support for Live Photos, pictures you can save and watch animate (with sound) as you press with 3D Touch. They’re mini videos automatically created as you take pictures. But they’re not videos, a series of frame-to-frame compressed videos that work on all devices.
  • Wi-Fi and LTE Advanced with “up to” 23 LTE bands, 2X faster LTE, and 2X faster Wi-Fi (866Mbps)

Not surprisingly no mention of a Ram upgrade in the 6S. Definitely needs it by far still having 1GB in the 6. Apple never talks about Ram but I would be shocked if the new 6S doesn't have at least 2GB of Ram

Hello @dieselx

Rumors do say its 2GB RAM but again the only way to get the actual info is if Apple releases it which it doesn't & or someone physically checks the device.

With regards to the pricing, if they are the same as last year's models thats all well and good but didn't Rogers raise the price of all iphones mid year? I bought my 64gb iPhone 6 last year for under $400 now if I were to buy the same phone from rogers that I have it will be $599 on a 2 year. Any idea if we can get discounts from the current posted rates?

Hello @mikey_27

Unfortunately those prices will be changed once the new iPhone's have been released or about to release next week. Apple is the one controlling the prices & changes, not the carriers. Apple controls the iPhone discounts / prices & releases.

Apple raised the price in Canada mid year due to the exchange rates, so far in Canada the 6S unlocked from Apple is more than the 6 was yesterday, probably due to exchange rates again.

Hello @jrfox87

That is correct. As said on page 1, Apple controls all the prices & they are the ones raising the prices & putting discounts on them. Carriers have no control on this.

 

The 16GB iPhone 6s will cost $899; 32GB $1,029; and 128GB $1,159. The iPhone 6s Plus is priced at $1,029 for the 16GB model, 64GB $1,159; and 128GB $1,289

Hello @somalp

Hmm i will see what i can find out for you. In the meantime speak to them & see if they can pre order one for you over the phone. That is also a possibility when it goes for pre orders.

Hello @lxhunter

From what i know it will be 6am EST. That is the time all carriers will do it here in Canada. Apple Canada will start i think 3am EST. 

Re: Apple iPhone 6S & 6S Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

Unless Rogers messes up like last year and starts it early at 3am EST again.

Hello @jrfox87

That is true but speaking to someone at Rogers the system will automatically open the reservations system at 6am EST from what i was told. Last year was a huge mess up at 3AM i agree.

Re: Apple iPhone 6S & 6S Plus Questions / Reservation numbers!.

It worked out for me last year because I was going to order straight from Apple, but since that took forever to get online I tried rogers just after 3am not knowing they were supposed to be doing it later and ended up being 23rd for the model I wanted lol
