ordered an iPhone 4s 64GB BLACK -
I was #143 on Friday at 6:05am and now i'm #120 OPEN status ....
If this is a national number, it's pretty sad that those numbers haven't shipped. Rogers couldn't buy 1000 iPhones of each model nationally?
and why is Rogers so darn secretive of how all this works? like really!!
Read my post above. The more i look at this secretiveness, the more i realize this pre order thing was just a way for rogers to tie in curstomers into placing orders and get in queue, rather than a way for them to facilitate a first come first serve basis fair system. Lines seem to be moving disproportionately, only less than the top 100 in queue seem to be able to be getting phones for launhc. Across 6 lines, that means if you're 100 for a specific phone, that is approx 600 phones. I find it hard to believe rogers got only 600 for the launch of a new phone. I was under the impression the reservation system was the preferred method of getting phones, rogers would tell everyone to get in queue, and as they ship hpoens to stores, your number will come up. It would seem rogers has locked in its customers in a way, and will probably be sending disproportionately high number of phones to stores. i'm # 500ish, and the way the line is moving i doublt i'm getting my phone before a months time.
I was told by a Rogers rep that they have divided their stock - half for the reservation system and half for store sales. This was due to the fact that they advertised the reservation system so aggressively. I hope she was right. What she couldn't confirm was when the reserved phones would actually get shipped. I'm confident I'll get my phone within a few days of the 14th at the latest, but not counting on getting it right on the 14th.
I'm now number 119 for a black 32 GB still in OPEN status.
If mine has not changed from IN PROGRESS to SHIPPED tonight I will be pissed & i will also wait outside & get one from the store. If i can not get one at least i have the reservation as a back up.
My status has been IN PROGRESS since Sunday afternoon (1pm). That is 2 days for them to get everything ready & have it been shipped out by tonight. Lets hope so.
I am going to line up anyways... don't think Rogers will release 500 units in a night... I am at #497 right now... Meowmix I hope you get your iphone at launched... One way or another haha 🙂
