We're a week away from release and on my corporate reservation page it shows i'm #75 out of only 140. Thought there would be much more reservations. I hope this means there's a better chance I'll get the phone earlier. I read through the iphone 5 thread about corporate reservations the last few days at work and I hope Rogers has gotten their act together since then.
I felt bad those guys couldn't take their business elsewhere because Rogers was who their company plan was with. Fortunately for me my work gives us the option of Rogers or Telus....the Telus plan is actually $4 cheaper a month but I'm too lazy to switch and I've already been with Rogers for close to 10 years. It's nice to know I've got a backup plan though. Plus no activation fees on Telus!
Rogers tho did offer the people that waited more then 14 days after the reservation $50 credit & if you waited 28 days or more they gave you $100 credit on your account as a " Sorry" From them & a goodwill when all this happened on the iPhone 4S/5 & Note 2 reservations for everyone that waiting so long for the device using the Rogers reservation system.
Most likely they will do the same AS Telus just started for selected customers that are going to wait for a long time they will give a $50 credit as well but only to selected customers.
Now if you wait that long after, most likely they will give you $50 credit as well if Rogers goes that way as well & most likely will as the demand for the S4 is pretty high. Lets hope you get the device soon tho!.
No there is no way of knowing this unless someone works at the warehouse and leaks it out. The stores get around 10-20 devices each. High traffic store's get a bit more but depend which location they are in.
Also a update for the walk ins. The official release date is May 3rd. The ONLY ones that can get the device April 27th is the reservation phones. The stores will NOT sell the S4 in the 27th unless you reserved it and it is at the store. I hope Rogers changes it and lets costumers get the S4 on the 27TH without a reservation but its like this with all the carriers it seems. So if you go April 27th to buy it outright or a new contract without having a reservation, they will not sell it too u. I had to contact Rogers and Samsung Canada about this.
hey, just saw on the site that Rogers is offering a $35 google play gift card for new and existing customers that sign 3 yr deal...i was wondering if anyone knows if it has to be new plans or i can keep my old plan and just sign 3 yr contract and get this promo??
