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?
@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)
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.
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.
@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
been "in progress" for about 5 days now for a 32gb in Vancouver. should I hold on, or try and order one through apple?
Hey, i reserved a white iphone 16gb about 2 weeks ago and my number was 840 and last week it went to 400 and since that week my number hasn't moved at all and i called rogers tech for help and they told me to talk to my store pick up location and i went to them and they said to call them :S and one of my friends ordered it on the same day as me and she got it...can someone tell me what to do?
