Just hours after pre-orders began, shipping estimates for new iPhone 4S orders placed through Apple's online stores in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the UK have slipped to 1-2 weeks from the initial "by October 14th" estimate. Shipping estimates through Apple remain at October 14th in the United States, while the company is not offering online sales in Japan.

So, would it be faster to go to a brick and mortar Apple store?

Hello, new here. Just wondering what is the cheapest plan (including student plan if qualified) on Rogers that with 3 year term you can get iphone 3gs for $159, on the website, it always says on select 3 year term, but it is not clear which plan is eligible from their website.

Thanks.

Called Rogers tonight just to find out what my upgrade costs would be to see if that $20 a month would be there and it certainly was. I've upgrade ech year like most at the full subsidy price but this year was going to be $340 early upgrade fee plus the subsidy price AND contact extension which really sucks after all that money. Fortunately I was able to get to customer relations and the account is now noted with an upgrade at the fully subsidized price plus activation without the early upgrade penalty. Just have to call on or after October 14 and will probably have to wait a bit for delivery.

good job!

I'm going to call them too and hope they waive the upgrade fee and 'service charge'. My wife wants to move her ipad from telus over and maybe her bberry (until the contract is up then maybe the iphone). I'm hoping Rogers realizes they're getting more business if they show some faith back. Good for them, good for me.

Unlocked seems the better option

I'm agreed, buying an unlocked iPhone 4s seems a better option rather than paying the early hardware "penalty" from Rogers.

i think it depends on the situation. if you don't use the phone option alot, maybe better in the long run to go with pay as you go.

for me, it's a business expense so a write off, but i'm definitely wanting to keep expenses down and it's also principle. Sure, it's Rogers right to change their policy, but i find it shady that they only recently changed it....conveniently close to when the new iOS5 and hype for a new iphone.

So apparently the iPhone 4S had more than one million pre-orders in 24 hours, beating the previous 24 hour record of 600,000 and becoming the biggest product launch by Apple so far. All without customers even having an actual phone to try out. Not bad for a minor upgrade. Well played. Mr. Cook and friends. Well timed, Mr. Jobs. Even after death, the man is still the master salesman.

Those are 'manipulated' numbers. The carriers weren't taking pre-orders last time, so it stands to reason there would be more this time around!

I realize pricing may be different for others, but after requesting my price for upgrading to iPhone 4S via Rogers, their "tool" sent me these numbers:

Dear Customer,

As of the date above, you are eligible to upgrade to an iPhone at the following prices, with select new 3 year term voice and data plans. See Full Details below or in-store for additional details and conditions.

Model 3 year term voice & data plan offer

iPhone 4S 16GB $209.00 + $35 Hardware Upgrade Administration Fee
iPhone 4S 32GB $319.00 + $35 Hardware Upgrade Administration Fee
iPhone 4S 64GB $419.00 + $35 Hardware Upgrade Administration Fee
iPhone 4 8GB $149.00 + $35 Hardware Upgrade Administration Fee

Plus applicable taxes


How is it possible that someone who hasn't purchased a handset from Rogers since the launch of the iPhone 3G actually has to pay more than their quoted prices on their website? To me this makes very little sense, especially considering I am no longer under contract with Rogers.

It is indeed strange if not ridiculous.
I'm in the same boat with Fido. My contract is up, since purchasing an iPhone 3G over 3 years ago.
I hope Fido's pricing isn't this bad (although since they're one in the same, it will probably be the same).
