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

FYI iOS 11.2 beta 1 just came out today, along with iPhone X backgrounds. If you want to get into the iPhone X mood, download the beta and get the X background on your current device lol

I went from 51 to 21 for a 256 silver and still open. Seems strange that people with higher numbers are now in progress.

Hi Ziglaub,

I remember you from last year.  i was the guy that had the same issue.  sitting in progress for 2 weeks.

 

This is why i'm not cancelling my apple launch day in store reservation yet even though i'm in progress with rogers. 

 

i'm making sure i get it launch day this year.

 

by the way, make sure everyone has at least a premium account with minimum $80 and the secondary line has to be $65 or else they won't let you upgrade on contract.  i had the $80 for my primary line but my secondary line was legacy $55 so they forced me to upgrade it to $65.

sapphire 27ca,

 

is it because you are on the business line reservation?

 

the consumer lineup and business lineup are separate.  they tend to allocate more to consumer line because consumer plans pay more than business plans.

I do have a corporate discount but I didn’t realize that meant I was on a business plan. Everything I’ve done is through the general Rogers site. 

 

Super disappointed I likely won’t get mine on launch day but I can’t wait to read about how it is on here!

I was under the impression that they would force you to upgrade to an in-market plan in order to get a subsidized iPhone X? I have a $90 7GB plan that I got a few months ago but is no longer available. Would they allow me to add the tab to this? or was my initial impression correct, that I'd have to switch to the in-market 6GB plan?

Hello @nasa25

Installing it on my iPhone 8 Plus.

BTW I got the iPhone 8 Plus from Telus today ( Transferring my line over tomorrow). The iPhone 8 Plus is factory unlocked.

Worked fully with my Rogers nano sim and my buddies Bell sim too. So I guess now Telus is sending them fully unlocked. Hopefuly Rogers does too.

Weird

I was position #60 for a 256 grey and I’m now position #30, but still open.

Hey JonathonCo,
Same with me, dropped from 32 to 2 on the same model. Are you on a business account? Mine isn’t

They have different models reserved. Seems like space grey models are in progress more (more of them that is)

That’s true it’s a dev beta. I’m running the dev beta profile on my iPhone and public beta profile on my iPad. I think the public beta is at 11.1 beta 5 if I’m not mistaken.

Hi @charles1977

 

Is that only for going to the premium + subsidy? To get it for $599(64GB) or $799(256GB)? Or is that even if I'm willing to pay for the higher price upfront? Because it doesn't say anything about raising the second line to $65 on the premium plan

Hello @enigma4321

That is correct. However I just received my iPhone 8 Plus and my BlackBerry KeyOne with Telus and they are both factory unlocked.

Tested them with my Rogers sim and my buddies Bell sim and worked on both. ( Transferring my line over tomorrow to Telus).

So Maybe Rogers will do the same? "

Nice! Enjoy the iPhone 8 Plus. I have a corporate work plan that I can get through telus with some nice iPhone deals but I just can’t justify an extra line. Wish I could. Rogers has me locked down pretty tight for the next couple of years lol

Hello @nasa25

Yeah i got a sweet deal with them to switch. No connection fee, $150 for the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus and a free case.

So we shall see how it goes.

Maybe they’ll find some more silver somewhere in the back before Friday!

Wow that’s a CRAZY deal. I think my corporate plan was at like $330 for the iPhone 8 Plus 64gb. $150 is unheard of given the fact that it’s like an $1150 or so phone.
