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

Hello @RogersPrasana

No need to thank me! Glad to be doing it for everyone! 🙂

I may check it out but due to the unforeseen circumstances and financial situation I am in atm and with family emergencies I have been dealing with, I may pass on this one. As much I would love to have it, it's worth the wait until next year or the following year.

Although it does look amazing and we shall see what else they will bring to it!

Its weird that Rogers wasn't listed for the new Apple Watch Series 3 LTE.

 

They not supporting it? Or waiting until release?

Hello @Mega31

Most likely will support it at a later time or will launch it on their own.

I did not see the iPhone X on the Apple Store website at all.  I assumed that it was because it was too early.  How did you find out, @Meowmix?

 

And what's the deal with Apple Watch Series 3 NOT being on Rogers?

it's up now:

 

Apple Canada’s website is now back online, and pricing is available for iPhone X. Here it is below:

  • 64GB iPhone X: $1319 CAD
  • 256GB iPhone X: $1529 CAD

 

Be prepared to pay still close to $800 for a 64gb even on contract for this one

Hello @writergal8

Thats because it was early. Go check it out now and should be there. Apple announced it on their own keynote!.

Its on Mobilesyrup, 9to5mac and other tech sites :).

It could be a agreement issue between Rogers and Apple or Rogers will release it later on.

Hello @AccordXTC

At those prices, I won't be getting it. The Note 8 and S8+ are far less and feature the same specs nearly.

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

AccordTR

Your definitely right. You can get the same specs for considerably less if you go Samsung. I'll grab a X still but probably only a 64gb outright.

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

The specs can't be compared like that. The iPhone 6S Plus runs circles around the Note 8 in terms of performance and memory management, and it only has 2GB of RAM vs. the Note 8's 6GB (!). 

 

The A11 that they announced today is a fairly crazy jump over that. It's going to be a much faster phone than the Note 8.

Hello @AccordTR

At due to the family emergency and financial situation I am in, I won't go for it. Its to much for a phone and if u factor in cases, charges and all ur looking near $1,700

Hello @markiskander

When you factor in that the iPhone X has the same if not similar internals for more it does.

In the end to each they own! 🙂
