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.

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!.
I can't believe how messed up this reservation thing has been for others! I guess I got extremely lucky! I just hope they don't screw up shipping out the devices too!
Hello again @Lizzybear,
Thank you for updating the Community.
We are sorry that the order was not properly placed. We appreciate your feedback and we truly apologize for any inconveniences this matter may have caused.
New here and I don't plan to read through 80 pages of post to see if it's been addressed..
On the reservation system, it only show 6S+ models, and I want a 6S 64 GB version. How do reserve this specific model?
If I log into MyRogers and choose Device Upgrade, I see a 6S 64GB available for Pre-Order, but that option seems to force me to pay now and change my plan now, which I don't want to do until I actually get the phone.
@RogersMaude It has been asked many times why the 6S 64Gb or 128Gb any color phones are NOT available on the Reservation System without any real explantion why. I had to Pre Order for two 6S 64Gb phones and pay Rogers up front on my account to hopefully reserve them when September 25 rolls around and Apple launches them. The reservation system if it worked would have allowed me to pay for it when I get it in my hand on that day or close to it, not today.
I believe that Rogers prefers the Pre Order process and therefore removed the more popular 6S version of the iphone to eliviate the big rush that occurs in the Rogers retail stores, especially when they are trying to activate the new reserved phones which took forever since the computer system grinded to a halt. Also by Pre Ordering you are required to address your wireless plan at the time of the Pre Order to ensure Rogers puts you in an approved Share Everything Plan. I got nailed on that in the store when I reserved last Fall for one Iphone 6 and had it subsidised and then all my Family plan phone plans had to be upgraded as well for an additional $10 per phone. If I wanted the phone I had no choice to increase my Family Share everything plan a that time. Was not happy.
So I think this is all by design to pad the pockets of Rogers as well as eleviate the retail store rush when given the only option to Pre Order. Which can be delivered to your home whenever Rogers feels like releasing inventory and getting you into a more expensive plan. I bet I won't see these phones until October 25.
Have any business account users been able to successfully do a hardware upgrade on the rogers direct website? The harware only (full price) option seems to go through successfully, but the HUP option gives me the message "We are not able to process your reservation online. To reserve your iPhone please contact your Rogers Business Specialist..."
