Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

Lol I really hope so.. I have better odds of getting my phone soon if it is not store specific lol. If 1314 people reserved the iPhone I wanted at my store alone.... 

I like the odds of province or all of Canada Smiley Happy

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

Actually it's store specific. I reserved 1313 unit at your store 😛 I hope some day to corner the iPhone 4S reseller market.

 

Ok maybe not. Bad joke. It does seem to be device-specific. I'm in at #330 - status is 'Open' and I'm in wait and see mode.

 

I ended up reserving one through Apple b/c of the uncertainty around the pricing and line-ups and all. I can always return it, but it's good to have options. Two years in a row I was first 5 in line at Rogers store, had the phone in hand, and turned away b/c the store guys don't know what the **bleep** they are doing (didn't know about early upgrade plan/computers down etc).

 

Although I'm an optimist, and I do wish the best for Rogers, I don't see how this year be different given the Rogers operating model seems to be the same as years gone by. Why are the Rogers stores so disconnected from Rogers proper? Are they franchises?

If anyone is trying to figure out what their upgrade cost is going to be you can always go to your "my rogers" account and enter your info and it will tell you what it will cost to upgrade to iphone 4s.

Yeah the tool is live. Forget it I'll wait for the 5 so I don't get hit with an even higher upgrade fee when going from a 4s to a 5 when it's out in less than a year. Rogers quoted me $320 early, $209 for 16gb 4s, and $35 fee. For that coin might as well buy it out right at apple and then when 5 comes out renew at Rogers. That way you won't be paying early upgrade twice.

No, when you sign in the first page that opens has like 6 large boxes, billing, overview etc. There is an iPhone 4s box/picture, click that one.

What are the odds they'll allow people who got the 4 last year to upgrade at promotional prices? 650$ after tax for the 16gb is very steep...might as well get the unlocked one.

@AccordTR:

 

I'm at Home | My Rogers | Overview

 

I see a box for 'Wireless', with my exisitng phone details in there. I click 'Upgrade My Phone' and I get the error above.

 

Am I in the wrong spot?
