Just a few moment ago Samsung announced their new devices. The Galaxy S6 & Galaxy S6 Edge. The Galaxy S6 packs a 5.1-inch QHD display, 3GB of RAM, Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos 7 chipset, 32 / 64 & 128GB of storage, and a 16MP camera in the back. The battery in the S6 is 2550mAh while the S6 Edge packs a slightly larger 2600mAh cell , Wireless charging & Cat6 LTE. Both devices have the same internals but just the EDGE has a bigger batter & weights more. Samsung has tipped that the Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge will be released April 10th but we do not know if Rogers or any canadian carrier will be included in that date.
Once Rogers announces the device / pricing & reservation information, Log into My Roges - Product & Services - Device Reservation & make your pick. please post anything about both devices on here.
Also please use this format when writing down which device you got & what reservation number you have & color / model. This will be used to know each users information so we all know what model / color & device u got.

Reservation number -
Again thank you for coming on here & hope Rogers opens up the reservations soon!!! Also another note to make. I would HIGHLY suggest you pick a Rogers corporate store for your reservation as in the past with other reservations the third party Rogers store may not get the device when it ships out & they use a different warehouse. So it may be a hassle.
Also please not making a Reservation with Rogers does NOT mean you will be first on getting the device & does NOT garranty you will get the device at launch. You will need to put a $40 deposit down for them to hold the device for you BUT u get it back once the device has been shipped or the reservation has been cancelled.

Again please keep any questions about the S6 / S6 EDGE in this thread!! Thank you:)
I just checked mine an hour ago and it says im 39th with a open order for the black edge 32gb, sucks to see that people over 100th place to get theirs in progress, but I understand Rogers doesnt have much control over this and needs to consider units for instore contracts and stuff. I'll keep patiently waiting
When I reserved the Samsung S4, I saw on tracking information that my phone had been received at the Rogers store so I called them and asked if I could go there now to get the phone. They told me they hadn't seen it yet so I'll have to wait for their call before I could go pick it up. 7 hours later, they called me back to tell me that my phone had arrived and I could go and pick it up.
I know that they won't release the phone until the 10th even if they receive it on the 9th. That much I can understand. I just hope it wouldn't take that long again before they call me to go and pick it up.
I like how you call what they're doing to the account "an upgrade"...
For me to keep what I aleady have they need to "upgrade" the monthly fees only, and by $25. That means that the $500 difference between "buying outright" and "paying monthly" will be covered in 20 months (so right there it's cheaper by $100 to buy outright than pay $25 difference over 24 months), not to mention, in 2 years if I do the same, likely the difference to "upgrade" will be even higher than $25, so it becomes even cheaper and cheaper to just buy outright.
The problem for most is forking out $1000 on a phone, but if you have it, and especially if you have a good plan for not too much monthly, it makes all the sense give Robbers some money up front and keep your plan. I know guys who are paying $56 after taxes and get 6GB and unlimited Canada talk/text (+VM/Call Display). Got that plan on some sort of promotion years ago... They'd be crazy to give that up even if Robbers gave them a free $1000 phone...
