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!.
@canamera it's not that people don't acknlowledge that apple controls how much stock rogers gets, but rogers is by and large the biggest mobile network operator (by number of subscribers) in canada. they have been working with iphone launches since the launch of the iphone 3G in 2008. they have subsequently been a launch carrier for the iphone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S, and 6. certainly they would be able to acquire a hundred or two hundred of each iphone model for launch?
since rogers has been working with apple over many iphone launch cycles, i really find it hard to believe that rogers hasn't received a hundred 128gb gold or rose gold 6S+ devices. they know what demand is, and apple hasn't had much of an issue producing stock. yet no one has seen any movement on these for reservations, even with reservations made the morning of september 12th with reservations under spot #100. what gives? rogers is big enough to get an appreciable amount of stock, and they have.
@Meowmix, do you really believe rogers, with almost 10mm subscribers, hasn't received just 100 128gb iphone 6S+ in gold or rose gold?
Fingers crossed my iPhone 6s 64gb Rose Gold goes from In Progress to Shipped tonight!! It's been at In Progress since yesterday afternoon so here's hoping!! And hopefully it will arrive at my local Rogers Store tomorrow!!
I only reserved on Saturday night, so that's pretty good.
Sorry to those who reserved early but are still Open. Guess you ordered a popular model?
My 6s+ Space Grey 64gb changed in In Progress yesterday afternoon but status is still In Progress now.. I'm doubting that it will arrive to the Rogers store I picked for it to ship to by tomorrow..
I think it's a matter of logistics. It's one thing for Apple to put thousands of new iPhones on skids and ship them around the world to both their retail stores and to cellular providers. You then have to break those shipments apart and send them out to individual stores notifying them that you now have x number of y units on hand to fulfill pre-orders on the 25th.
In the mean time, you've had to box up more units individually and prepare them for shipment to individuals va UPS. This is VERY labour intensive.
Apple isn't shipping your iPhone directly from China. They are shipping them by the boat load and have for a while to get stock pile of iPhones available for the launch. They will never really catch up for weeks...
