Many of you have been asking for an update about when you’ll get your iPhone 4S that you reserved through our Reservation System. Some of you have asked about how you’ll be notified, when your iPhone 4S will arrive in store, and how we will manage inventory for this great new smartphone.
We are allocating inventory to the Reservation System. We are excited to tell you that we have begun fulfilling reserved orders and we will continue to ship reserved orders as inventory becomes available from Apple.
When your device is ready to ship, you will receive an email from us with a link to track your shipment until it arrives at the store of your choice. If you don’t get an email letting you know your device is ready this weekend, fear not, you’re still on the list. By being on our reservation system you don’t have to line up or look for stores that have an iPhone left. Keep an eye on your email starting early next week. We’ll send you an update on your place in line.
Remember you can always check where you are in line and the status of your reservation by visiting rogers.com/myrogers.
We know that some of you may choose to go to a store to try to get a smartphone this weekend. That’s okay too, because your $40 reservation fee is totally refundable. All you have to do is cancel your reservation and we’ll give you back your $40.
We’ll continue to keep you updated.
UPDATE: (October 16, 2011, 5pm): We have now shipped thousands of devices and many of you will soon receive a notification that your device has been shipped. We continue to receive more inventory and have put extra staff in place so we can get the devices sent out as quickly as possible. At this point stores are selling out. But since you have reserved a device you are guaranteed to get one without having to line up or phone to see if there are any available. To track the progress of your reservation you can log on to MyRogers.
