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

Hi again @Meowmix 🙂
I have one last question (at least from me lol). I made the reservation on the rogers reservation system under a different phone number than the one I want to make the upgrade with. Will i have a problem using that reservation to upgrade on my own phone number? I believe I had done that in the past for the iPhone 5s and didn't have a problem, but with rogers you never know, things always change lol. Thanks in advance 🙂

When I ordered on the 27th at 4:20am MST, I was in spot 155. On Monday it dropped to spot #3 for 256 Grey. I ordered for pickup at an Authorized dealer by my house but I’m himdsight I think I probably should’ve sent it to a Corporate store. Hope it comes soon, I got an exclusive offer of $100 off the phone on a premium plan and $130 credit if I trade in a phone valued over $25.

#6 silver and #13 Grey just shipped for me.

I do live outside GTA in a small town and things usually take an extra day to get here so may be they are shipping based on how far these things have to go.

thanks for posting your numbers and updates. rogers seems to be all over the place with shipping out devices in order. hopefully all who are in progress will mean shipping soon and it doesn't matter. but seems odd to have a number system go out the window on the most important step..shipping. the numbers mean nothing if someone who is way behind me gets a day ahead of shipping. no big deal, i am excited but in no rush to spend 800 bucks.

Correct, some will get shipping notices prior to others, Example: #55 getting it before #42.. wont make a diff, everyone under a certain amount should get it this weekend. Chill 😉

I just got off a 45 minute call with Apple's iPhone sales line, who have confirmed to me that Telus was sent the A1865.  I had them double check this as the Telus website does not indicate CDMA/EVDO support.

They were unable to find any model information assigned to Rogers.  I did not have them check Bell.

 

As someone who is paying full retail cost (i'm off contract, and with the scope of my loyalty package it would not be cost effective to re-sign with a new plan), If Rogers tries to hand me an A1901 when I arrive for my in-store pickup they will lose a sale.

Exact same thing for me. I'm not worried, we should get the shipping notice in the next day or 2 🙂

At this stage, order doesn't matter, its rogers system that's sending out notices to different numbers.. the order still matters

Who ever you spoke to, gave the wrong information. ONLY the A1901 is sold in Canada

If you really want that model (which there are possibilities that it wont work correctly here), you have no choice but to order it from the states, or overseas

More info, direct from Apple website Spec sheet

 

in other words, in Canada, IF you can get the A1865, you will see NO difference between the two

 

Model A1901
FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 66)
TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41)

Model A1865
FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 66)
TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41)

I ordered my 64GB silver at 5:55EST. I decided to have it shipped to home as they said it would be faster.. Does anyone have any idea if I should receive it on Friday? I wish Rogers would give us STHers a que number !

For me, it's not about serviceability inside Canada. I require access to CDMA and specific LTE bands unique to Japan. These are only available on the A1902 or the A1865

I was #8 but haven't gotten any shipping notification yet. The status is "In Progress" on the reservation site, hopefully shipping confirmation comes soon...
