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

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

Hello Meowmix,

 

Thank you for your very informative answers in the posts! I check it every day! One question that I have is: I currently have the iPhone 6 Plus and I want to upgrade to the iPhone X when it comes out through the Ship at Home option. On a previous post you said that the phones shipped at home are already activated. Does that mean that there is already a pre-installed Nano Sim card with all my information from Rogers installed and all I have to do is turn it on and all ready to go? or do I have to take out my existing Nano Sim card from my iPhone 6 plus and install it into the X and then it will automatically recognize all my info? Thank You for all your help!

Hello @monctondale

Activated means that the IMEI and serial number are attached to your account. The sim card that comes with the phone can be activated when u call into Rogers.

You can use your existing nano sim card if u wish and have that new one as a back up if need be!

Thanks Meowix 🙂 so maybe i can just use my existing sim for my iphone X and use the new one that comes in the X and use it into the 6 plus when i sell it for the next person to use?

Hello @monctondale

The sim card is only able to be activated on one account. The new buyer for ur 6 Plus won't be able to use that sim and will throw it out.

Also for security purposes I would suggest cutting that sim card and disposing it your self instead of giving it to someone else.

You use ur existing sim card into the X and the one they give u, either keep it or throw it out. The buyer can not use that sim on their account.

Hello @ziglaub

Unfortunately no. Keep a eye on Google or Apple.

Wow, quiet in here. I guess that's what a Super NES Classic release will do. Anyone know if Rogers has announced pricing for people on non Premium plus tab contracts?

Hello @richelsd

Its not because of the Nintendo release lol. It's because many don't seem to be interested in the iPhone 8 / 8 Plus or X atm. Even the line ups at the Apple stores during the 8 and 8 Plus launch wasn't even big (20 people on launch day for the 8 and 8 Plus vs 200 during last year).

Unfortunately the only pricing I have heard is $999 on a 2yr term for the 256GB iPhone X. That's on a premium plan ( not +)

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

Hey @Meowmix I have a plan question - currently I am on a loyalty 15GB Premium Tab plan with 4 lines + 2 tablets. I want to upgrade one of the secondary lines that is eligible for upgrade but I want it to be on a premium+ tab with the iPhone X.

 

I'm expecting i'll have to change my plan, correct? If so that is fine as I am currently paying $145 for the 15GB but I am eligible for the 30% corp discount through my work so I can change to the 20GB plan and save $$$.

 

But should I change my plan before I initiate the upgrade process or during the upgrade process? If I change my plan now will I have to re-verify my corp. discount when I go to upgrade?

 

And if I want the new device to be on the Premium+ but the rest of my lines are Premium tab or No tab / off contract is that allowed?

 

Cheers

Hello @jackthecompguy

I would highly recommend to upgrade your plan before going to get the phone. This way u won't have to do it in store and may not get the same deals u will get now

That should be allowed as all lines have different plans on them and aren't the same but best to call and ask.

Contact customer relations and see what they can offer for u!

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

Ok... i was gonna just change my plan online since i'm taking advantage of my corporate discount.

 

So you're thinking it should be allowed on the following configuration?

 

Main line - Premium tab iPhone 7+ (12 months left on contract) - $180/mo less 30% corp discount

Secondary line - Premium+ tab iPhone X - $70/mo

Tertiary line - Premium tab GS8+ (~18mos left on contract) $60/mo

Fourth line - no tab iPhone 6s $35/mo

Plus the 2 tablets at $10 each.

Hello @jackthecompguy

Yeah it should be allowed but again before doing any changes, call in and ask and see what they say. You don't want to change one plan and another plan needs to be changed too.

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

alright thank you 🙂 just doing a chat with the messenger team now

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

Thanks. Yeah, more interested in 64GB. 256 is overkill in my opinion.

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

Hello @richelsd

Most likely $749-899 for the 64GB one on that plan unless they change it.

Unfortunately they shouldn't have removed the 128GB model. Should have kept it at all three or 128GB and 256GB models instead.

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

I agree the 128 model is the "sweet spot" for most. Oh well. Looking forward to October 27th.

Hey @Meowmix
I had a question, I’m sure this has been answered already but there are quite a few pages in this forum. Do you know roughly what time in PST the iPhone 8 went up for reservation? Hopefully it will give me some insight on when to wake up for the iPhone X. Thanks 🙂
