Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

I just want to give a quick aftermath to my furious post yesterday: Approximately 2 minutes after I posted my 2nd post, I got the phone call telling me to come and pick up my device. I was relieved because 50 minutes later and I was on my 1 hour commute, and that would've been the end of my dream of a new phone for a couple of days. The person that served me, however, was not the same person that happily brushed me away. I was glad, because it would've been awkward otherwise. Hang in there to those who wait. If you're going from a 3G to a $s, the upgrade is well-worth it.

 

As a side question, now that I have 2 iphones, can my other one be sold to someone that is running with another carrier?

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

@dyalad. No because your iPhones are locked to Rogers. So you need to sell it to someone that can ONLY use it on the Rogers network. ( unless you have it unlocked or unlocked it your self WITHOUT jailbreaking it)

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

I'll share my story with everyone since this site was what kept me sane during my wait 🙂

 

iPhone 4S 32GB Black (London ON)

 

I reserved the phone online on Oct. 22 and was at ~2010.

On Oct 24, I was at ~400 (I think Rogers gets a shipment every Monday).

On Oct 28, I was at ~200.

Then I read posts about reserving online via Apple. So at 9:00pm on Oct 28, I ordered the phone on the Apple website and picked it up on Oct 29 at 9:00am. I should've done this a week ago! Apple took less than 12 hours to get me what I wanted. If I had kept waiting for Rogers, it probably would've taken another ~2 weeks for me to get my phone.

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

You want to know why Apple takes 1 day for you to get your phone? Its because Apple stores are owned from Apple ( duh lol) they get more shipments of phones then any carrier or any 3rd party store. They get shipments every second day or even a week. They get more then a thousand phones a week.

 

Apple got more shipments of iPhones this year then they did any other iPhone launch.

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

@ymcanita You're a smart person! Tried looking for white 32GB on apple reserve site, but unavilable. Seems like all other models are avilable somewhere except this white 32 GB 😛 

 

 Ahh well. Just have to keep on waiting 😄

 

Whats the moral of this problem....just reserve through apple rather than waiting weeks for rogers to get inventory

Re: iPhone 4S on reservation

I Agree with Jun. Apple like i said gets more inventory of iPhone's then any other carrier or any 3rd party store.
