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

Thanks  so much!! Really appreciated all your hard work! It's been a couple years since I've posted here but you were super helping getting my iPhone 6 ages ago!

I think I'm going with the Apple iPhone 8 Plus 64GB @ $359.99.

 

Does anyone know if Rogers will let you pay for this upfront on your major credit card instead of it appearing on your monthly bill? The reason why I ask, is instead of paying $169+ for Apple care, I would have an additional year of warranty added from my credit card provider.

 

Cheers!

Hello @Radar2000

All upgraded done in store since last year you now have to pay the sub price in store. The only thing that appears on ur next invoice is your upgrade fee.

It would be amazing if an iPhone 8 64gb was $229 on a premium plus tab but I have a very hard time believing that given the fact that an iPhone 7 32gb is $199 on a premium plus tab

No one would go for an iPhone 7 under this cost scenario

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

Actually I take that back. iPhone 7 pricing is a mess now. Rogers outright price for an iPhone 7 32gb is $929 and apples price of a 64gb iPhone 8 is $929. No one is going the iPhone 7 route in this case

$929 -700 subsidy = $229 on a premium plus tab and $429 on a premium tab - for an iPhone 8 64gb

iPhone 8 plus should be $359 on a premium plus tab and $559 on a premium tab. Outright price of that phone is $1059

Hello @nasa25

Well those are the prices Best Buy Canada has posted online for Rogers, Bell and Telus. Mind you as i said those pricing can change before or after the pre orders start.

@Meowmix what you’ve posted makes sense. $700 subsidy on a premium plus tab. For those on a premium tab the price will be $200 more than what you’ve posted

Rogers iPhone 7 prices just don’t make any sense now. That’s what was confusing me. $199 for an iPhone 7 makes no sense when you can get an iPhone 8 for $229 next Friday.

Hello @nasa25

I noticed it on Bell and Telus as well. So it's Apple doing this pricing as we all know. The pricing for contract and outright is done by Apple for all carriers here.

In the end I agree it makes no sense. Pretty soon the iPhone 7 will be $0 anyways.

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

@Meowmix yes a $0 iPhone 7 would make a lot more sense.

I think the general rule of thumb based on the past few years is to expect a $500-530 subsidy on a premium tab and a $700 subsidy on a premium plus tab

So for people trying to get a price estimate, just go on the Apple website and look at the outright price of the phone you want.

If you’re on a premium tab, subtract $500 from that price to get your on contract price. If you’re on a premium plus plan, subtract $700 from that price.

Meowmix you mentioned that the iPhone X subsidy could be as high as $870 on a premium plus tab ($449 on contract price for the 64gb). I really hope this happens. That’d be an extra $200 subsidy from what we have seen in the past

Hello @nasa25

Yes it could be that high and in the end, I don't think many people would dish out almost $1,000 upfront for a phone on a 2yr term ( taxes included but not any cases or any warranty) . That is what i am thinking.

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

nasa25

Yup. Even with a $500 subsidy on the X and selling my iPhone 7 I’ve figured my net cost to upgrade would be about $500. If I get an extra $200 subsidy my net cost would only be $300. That’d be a no brainer for those of us on a premium tab that upgraded to an iPhone 7 at launch last year.

I don't see product and services on MyRogers account, the closest I have is usage and services and if i select wireless it just gives me my shared plan details. I can upgrade my device, but there is not option for the reservation. I know the pre order isn't until the 26, so is that why?

I have a share everything plan.  I got a discount code from my union which gets me a discount on the monthly price.  I was told when I got the code that when I get a new phone I have to have it shipped to the authorized dealer location.  From the posts above it says that will take longer than having it shipped to an actual Rogers store.  Is it true that I have to have it shipped to an authorized dealer to keep by discount on my share everything?

Hello @chrome262

It will be up. It will be under the new Upgrade My Device option now it seems. They also have the original reservation page here.

Hello @gwild55

It may be true. This is set from each company and not Rogers. So in some cases it does happen.

Pricing is coming tomorrow supposedly - kinda weird through they would open pre orders without providing pricing before hand.
