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!.

So I talked to 2 reps to make sure things are clear.
Pre-order and Reservations aren't the same, although many reps that I asked said it's only the difference between you paying for your device upfront and sending it to your home or pay $40 and reserve one when it is available to pick up in store, but in the reality, it is COMPLETELY different. I have asked one of the rep, if they did receive any shipment for my model and she said she did, and asked if so, why did we have person who's with #1 remains OPEN status. She confirmed that; people who pre-order gets their device before people who made reservations (Priority wise). When I asked her if it says that on Rogers Reservation System or any other pages, she said she is "unsure". I think they need to clearly state this on both pre-order and reservation pages. If I knew this, I would've just pre-ordered.
If any of you had a bad experience with the Rogers Reservation System, then for the next time, just make a reservation via Apple. I know for business reservations you may not do so, but it will make things easier for both Rogers and us (customer).
Keep this in mind, Rogers can't do much about it when Apple only supplies few of them.
@elvtnedge I used mine in the Apple store towards a HUP...not sure you could use them for outright purchase as you would have the ability to walk away from Rogers at any time. What about just buying outright and redeeming your First Reward points for one of the "take ____ amount off your bill" rewards?
One thing that i have run into.. KIND OF directly related to this.
When doing the upgrade at the store, had a PREVIOUS share everything plan, but was a bring your own device one.. so wasnt compatable (as its discounted due to no hardware repay, etc). So had to switch it to an in market one.
Which wasnt a big deal.
BUT.. we did have the addon of the VISUAL VOICEMAIL.
When switching to the NEW one.. it said it had to remove the visual voicemail.. that specific addon was not compatable with the new one. The store could not see any NEW version of it 😞
I did talk to someone on twitter.. And they were able to add one on.
WHen i go into MYROGERS, into the addons management for the phone, it shows that the iphone value pack is added. It says its only VOICE TO TEXT on it.. says nothing of VVM.
BUT its on there.
So this morning I got myself a reservation at a local Apple store...did it right at 8am local time and glad I did because just as a refreshed to check to see availability at another store, all reservations for the phone I wanted were gone at any local apple store.
We'll see how it goes at noon, I wont cancel my apple reservation until I'm dont at Apple.
