Apple iPhone 8 / 8 Plus & iPhone X Reservation numbers / Questions!

Hey everyone!!Smiley Happy

I am posting this now as tomorrow i will be unable to come online due to some family appointments i have Smiley Sad

 

Once again its the time of the year that Apple will be announcing their new iPhone line up. I am happy to announce that iPhone 8 / 8 Plus and iPhone X will be announced tomorrow! As for the specs, They are rumored to be the iPhone X will have a OLED wrap around display near bazel-less and have 3GB of RAM and wireless charging as per the rumors. The iPhone 8 / 8+ will have similar body and display as the iPhone 7 and newer technology such as new camera / Face unlocking and more! Will update this tomorrow when i can! The names to be rumored as per what the IOS11 beta has shown and also some of the features! Again i will try and update the thread tomorrow when i can! 

 


1). Once Rogers has announce when they will add the Apple iPhone 8 / 8+ and iPhone X to the reservation list & the day comes, sign into your My Rogers account - Product & Services – Wireless & you will see a Red wording saying “Device Reservation" on the main page. Click that & it will take you to the page. Once there you will need to pick which device you want, iPhone 8 Black and what other colors they may release it on. You also need to pick the store you want it to go too. Just to make it clear, reservations are for current Rogers wireless customers which have contracts with them. Rogers will put up the Pre order list for people 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 remember 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 remember 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 mine 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 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 / confuses 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.

 

5). They also started last year a pre ordering system done online being charged on your CC ( Credit card) imminently and having the device shipped to your home instead. Last year with the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus the ones that picked this way got it the day of launch or day after launch but only a few did. Not everyone.  This way is a good way but sadly u do not see any status updates like u do with the reservation system and only get a confirmation email and a shipment email. ( some did not get any email until the unit got shipped with QMS or UPS). Please do remember. Using the SHIP TO HOME option does NOT give u any insight of updates or status. You will only get notified when it ships out. 

Let's make this thread the only thread for the iPhone 8 / 8+ iPhone X  please and if you guys have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me and I'll gladly be able to help!Smiley HappyCat Happy

I'm sure next year they will start building off of the iPhone X for iPhone 9 or whatever they will name it.

Hello @gcooldude

That is true. I wonder how they will do the name change next year as iPhone X is IPhone 10. So will they continue to that or change it. We shall see.

Re: Apple iPhone 8 / 8 Plus & iPhone X Reservation numbers / Questions!

I'm thinking next year will be iPhone 9 and maybe the following year iPhone 11. Seems like they may do away with the "S" cycles.

Hello @gcooldude

The S line is gone I believe. A insider within Apple leaked out that the S line will no longer be with the iPhone name at all.

So we shall see!

Well for the first time ever I won’t be upgrading. Had every iPhone since 2G but gonna sit this one out boys.

iPhone 8 isn’t a big enough upgrade from the 7. Plus the removal of the 128gb model wasn’t welcomed at all

iPhone X with more than 64gb storage is $1529 plus tax. Paying the remaining year of my subsidy coupled with selling my iPhone 7 for $650 or so would still mean an upfront cost of about $800 for me. Can’t YOLO that.

Have fun boys and girls. I’ll be with you in spirit this year.

Hello @nasa25

Welcome back. Unfortunately due to my personal situation and financial situation I will be also sitting out on this one. Actually many are as this is getting a bit ridiculous on the pricing.

Here's kind of a ridiculous question...

 

since ive never reserved any other device on any other day, would the reservation system for the 'X' model work the same on Oct. 27?

 

same times, same process?

 

Hello @Th1ef and @nasa25, weclcome back!

Hello @ragu13

Yes it will. They will add the iPhone X om October 27th on the reservation system just like they do with all phones when they have a set pre order date.

Most likely the same time but no one knows and but same process. It can be anytime during that day. Morning, middle of the day or night. The process is the same though.

maybe this year I'll actually be successful with the reservation system.. 3rd times the charm. Despite being like #6 last year the system still failed me on the first day launch and I ended up going to a retail store to buy it that evening.

Hey Meowmix,

Back again, great to see the gang back together 🙂

I'm still debating whether to upgrade or not. I currently have the 6s so the 8 would be an okay upgrade but am not sure how much better it is really. The X is nice but I want to wait to see how it performs. Might be better holding off until next year. Decisions, decisions 😊

Re: Apple iPhone 8 / 8 Plus & iPhone X Reservation numbers / Questions!

Rogers website has the information up for the 8 and the X but no pricing info

Also a small printing error...it says in the title screen that the preorders start 10/27 but on the actual 'X' information screen it says preorders start on 11/27

Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come with all the confusion of last year all over again lol

No plan pricing as of as of yet however based on the current 7 plus pricing I assume the 8 plus will be 50 bucks more with any plan and the 'X' could be as much as 150 more

Amazing that a phone costs as much as a laptop to buy outright...Yikes!!!

Hello @ragu13

Most likely it's a screw up on the date. The release date for the iPhone X is November 3rd. 🙂

Yeah that's true. More however I have gotten a source to tell me the iPhone X 256GB will be $649-$700. So roughly you will end up paying almost $1,000 upfront for it IF you buy the AppleCare+ and the devices on a 2yr term.

Hello @Emily-Marie

None of the carriers have posted this yet. They will post the pricing within the next couple of days.

From a source within, i got pricing for the iPhone X when he also said it could go higher. IPhone X 64GB most likely will be $449 and 256GB will be $649. Remember the S pricing can go higher as the 256GB is $1,513 outright. So Rogers takes half of that and charges the customer upfront.

So base the pricing to last year's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and add an extra $50 or so.
