iPhone 6S - Position in Line

Seeing as how stoked I am for the phone, I decided to make this thread to see who ordered what and the position they are in line. 

 

I'm #47 for iPhone 6S Silver 64 GB. Think there's a chance I'll get it day 1? I don't really mind waiting a few days. 

 

How about you? What number are you? 

 

Thanks!

Hey thelazypolygon!

 

We can't guarantee anything but fingers crossed you get it soon after launch! Maybe even day one. Wink

Thats a thing I would never understand and that suck from appple. If they see that they have limited stock of 6S+ due to some manufacturing delay, then why they just don't wait few more weeks before launching it to have more time to make some more iphones  to have enough devices and then everyone will be happy...

@orionoreo @mamb0girl There have been reports of manufacturing delays for the 6s plus backlight module so I think supplies of the plus will likely be very constrained at launch. Apparently could be up to 3 weeks before it is in good supply. I think that's why only people who reserved the 6s have received shipment notifications so far.

@erica123 no way anyone's getting one until launch day, the 25th. Apple is very strict about enforcing their release dates! If she got a notification it was that it's shipped to the pickup location, but they won't release it to anyone until Friday.

I'm #39 for a 6S+ Gold 128gb. Really hoping I can get it on launch day as I'm already scheduled off work that day. My status is still "OPEN" though Sad

I have a question, supposedly the account holder is the only one who can pickup the phone. But my father is the account holder but lives in Texas, and I'm the one who's paying for it, is there a way I can pick this up? Because the only way I could reserve my iPhone was thru over the group account.

Hey @apineda

 

Only the account holder, with government picture ID, can pick up the phone.

Do we pay for the phone when we pickup at the store or does it go to our next monthly bill?

Hey apineda,

If you are already a Fido customer renewing a tab, the balance of the phone will be applied to your account.

If you are a new customer or have an account for less than 90 days, you'll have to be in store.

You don't have to renew your tab for the balance of the phone to be applied to your account. I didn't renew mine with the IPhone 6 Plus, and it was applied to my Fido account.

You can change the pickup location on the reservation page if I remember correctly.

@GpH I'm just worried that they aren't actually getting there on the 25th and they don't ship on weekends so it'll get there after I leave Calgary.

Hi, will I be able to use my fido dollars if I'll buy the unlocked phone and retaining my old plan not the max plan? i read in the iphone 6 thread that they won't let you use your fido dollars if it's not on Max plan. 

Hey sassysaphire, 

you can use your FidoDOLLARS to buy a phone outright, it's no problem Smiley

I also assumed that they would be shipped before the launch date to be there for pickup on the 25th. Does anyone know if they are shipped on the 25th or are to arrive on the 25th..?

kasialeo, I have no idea. I did reserve one with Apple store and it seems like I'll be going there come Friday next week to pick it up. Talked to 2 Specialists at the Eaton Centre Toronto location and according to both of them, you just need to show up at the store during your chosen time slot on Friday with IDs.

 

If you reserved it, you'll get it day one. There will be a different line-up for those who reserved the phone. They're are also able to redeem Fido dollars and have access to the Fido portal. So I suggest that if you can, do reserve with Apple just in case.

I'm also curious for people on the Fido reserve system - I should have went with the Apple one. I'm in position 95 for 6s+ 64gb. Problem is I'm driving across canada starting that morning and won't be back till the 4th. If they only hold it for 7 days I won't make it. Wondering if I should change the location to Calgary. I'm leaving Calgary on Sunday.

Thanks Amanda.

One more question. I have an interaction ID with a few notes and perks that are to be added to my agreement when I upgrade. Will the associate at the Apple Store be able to gain access to the notes so he can apply the loyalty discounts and such?

Thanks
