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'm #199 on the iPhone 6s Plus 64GB Grey line with a status of OPEN.
When do you guys believe this will ship? And, do you think the odds of walking in to a store tomorrow are good?
I am going in the morning. My store just called and told me they are opening at 10am. So I'll be waiting outside the store from 5am lol.
I would say morning is best but the system may crash. Mid day is okay and evening everyone will go after work
Wondering why everyone is so concerned that they won't get their phones tomorrow? Is there a link to somewhere that says that Rogers isn't getting very many, or that Apple is releasing so few?
I'm #596 for 6S+ RG.. which is by far the worst number i've seen on here (went down from 675 a couple days ago) and i find it hard to believe that I'm not going to get a call about picking up my phone this weekend. I mean really... i would think that Rogers would get at least 1000 of each model/colour Canada wide... that's just 8000 phones for 450 stores (17 phones per store) . I think people concerned that they aren't getting at least a couple hundred of each are perhaps a little paranoid?
PS, im dying to get my phone cuz my iphone5 died last week and I'm on a cracked 3gs now.
Only Rogers knows how many units they have to distribute tomorrow and they're not talking. Lets say they got in 10K units of all types for processing to fulfill customer orders tomorrow. They have to individually identify which type of phone it going to an individual customer and do 1 of 2 things, email a notification to that client and arrange to have a phone shipped out to that client via UPS. Or ship x units to both their corporate and franchise stores, still notifying select customers that your dream has come true.
Each step of the process from inventory control to order fulfillment and finally shipping the units out is labour intensive. Rogers has to track what goes where and to whom so that if there are questions as to why you billed me for a phone i didn;t receive, they can get to the bottom of things.
I remember when the iPhone 5S came out, some stores didn't get a shipment of new phones for the first few weeks, not days, weeks!!! Corporate stores got them first and usually those with large orders.
@Jenn6s people are concerned because people with numbers #1-10 or #50 or #100 for 128gb gold and rose gold 6S+ models are still "OPEN" the evening before launch with no progress at all since reservations opened. at this point, it would be lucky if you got your phone this weekend as #596.
@Meowmix Thanks for the info. So that's where the problem is coming from. Apple's control on the inventory. I used to believe that when people pre-ordered or make a reservation on the 12th, Apple will match those numbers and send all of it to Rogers but it seems like it doesn't work that way. Oh well. We'll get it soon enough. 🙂
I sold my iPhone 6 yesterday so i'm missing my iPhone now lol...
Doesn't look good for tomorrow..
I've made a reservation for an iPhone 6s 64GB Grey... Moved to in progress yesterday but hasn't changed to shipped yet :-(..
As we're almost 7PM, I assume I will not be getting it tomorrow ;(((
I'll be checking this thread constantly in the next 24 hours with a glimmer of hope. Still sitting at IN PROGRESS for #2 position Gold iPhone 6S+ 64GB. I have faith it'll ship out tonight and get there sometime tomorrow.
Also is there not a posibility the website is just flatout wrong? Basically is it not possible that the website gets "delayed" in updating for whatever reason and so the website's info is just old? I feel this is what happens a lot with shipping companies. It hasn't shipped, and it hasn't shipped, and it hasn't shipped, and then all of a sudden it gets to my door from China overnight lol and I look at where it went and apparently it's been shipped for a week but the site just never updated. I just feel like that's a possibility. I'm really hoping for tomorrow, but Saturday wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if it's then at the latest. Guess we'll see tomorrow!
