Apple Store iPhone 4S Reserve and Pick Up Now Available

Share:

Canadian Apple retail stores now have ‘Reserve and Pick Up for the iPhone 4S, a service that was also offered during the holidays in 2009.

Users just select their province, Apple store location, and choose an available model.

The Pacific Centre Apple Store will start taking reservations tonight as of 9PM PDT, and other stores should also be following suit. Apple announced this morning iPhone 4S sales exceeded 4 million in just three days.

Anyone looking forward to using Reserve and Pick Up? It’ll save you time from guessing about stock and waiting in line.

Thanks @Christian_Lim!

    This is good news for me as well as other people,thanks for the info Gary.

  • Cake

    This is great! It can save people from coming back from the store empty handed. But at the same time the Apple Store app would have been way better.

  • AGTO

    So its at 9PM Pacific time? 12PM for us? how do we know that for sure? it doesn’t say PDT on the site.

  • Cellonly

    Actually is says available to order at 9pm and then allows you to go to pick a store but does not flip back to the ordering page. I say try after 9pm.

    If they have the model I whish, this will be too bad for Rogers. I have been waiting for news from my reservation since the 7th, and am still “in process”, although I am at #36. 
    If the Apple store has my model, I will go unlocked, and say good-bye to forces 3-year lockin.

  • Is this only for unlocked phones? Or if you’re a Rogers user, can you get a phone from Apple retail and take it to Rogers to get activated?

    Let’s hope it will be faster than Fido reservation system!

  • Glacasse

    It will be activated on the spot by Apple staff.

  • rivix

    I’m going to try and do this, although I still have a Rogers reservation. Apple can do reservations right. 

  • Anonymous

    Well this is a reservation… so yes Apple can? And you can cancel your Rogers reservation at any time and get your $40 back.

  • Patiently waiting…

    What about orders placed through apple before launch? I purchased my phone on the 11th and order status still says “processing items” with an estimated delivery of “October 25-November 1

    This is better than waiting 24 hours at the apple store and in the rain in Toronto.

  • Anonymous

    You will get it.

    The stock the stores get are separate from the online order. This reservation system is based on the store stock so it might be unavailable for sometime until the demand drops and stock starts lasting for several days

  • that’s great! I just reserved mine!

  • rivix

    Hu? Yeah I know I can cancel my reservation. But unlike Rogers, Apple with give me the next iPhone of my choosing as soon as they have one available, and not wait for my shipment to get to the store. 

  • Ian

    Reserved mine but then tells me to bring credit card/ID/etc.

    I can’t buy an off-contract unlocked phone this way?   I’m keeping my reservation and calling the Sherway store in the morning, I suppose.

  • Lawlam

    wow which apple store?

  • it’s unavailable .. everywhere! how did u reserved it?

  • nik

    having trouble with the site, fairview location still says ‘unavailable’ !!

  • Bruce

  • Rivix

  • Coolin

  • Coolin

    No 64GB models….all others were selectable.

  • u are lucky! i don’t know how Ontario has less stocks! hopefully i can do it better tomorrow LOL

  • 6S

    Still showing unavailable here in Calgary! 🙁 Can’t select any of the phones. 

  • JustinB

    Im getting all unavailable at all BC stores

  • Rivix

    Yeah same. I’m not sure if that reflects inventory, or the reservations haven’t gone live yet. 

  • Anonymous

    Got a 32 GB black at fairview anyone intersted

  • Dm100

    got my 32gb white at Pacific centre. I think they’re all gone in BC!

  • 789456789456

    Started in Vancouver at 8:53. The 32gb sold out right away and all were gone at around 9:05

  • Tlr5

    Hit reserve at 8:54pm, and ended up with a 16GB black – the 16GB White and 32 GB black were the only two other options a that time.  

  • Brian

    Yes, interested. Couldn’t find anything available anywhere, been refreshing since 9.

  • Anonymous

    What’s your email

  • Got in right at 9PM for the Sherway Gardens. The only model available was the black 32GB, which was the exact one I wanted, so I was all over that, and got my reservation. I checked afterwards out of curiosity, and they were all gone, every model, every colour, every store in Ontario.

  • 6S

    I am thinking that it hasn’t gone live yet. Despite what some people are claiming here, the BC stores do not appear to be live as of yet too. 

    Typical Apple with these reservation system. It was the same last Friday too; big delay getting the reorder up and running. It’s very frustrating for people. 

  • Brian
  • Sjette1

    Same here 🙁

    Delete it do u don’t get spamed

  • bboy

    Reserved mine for 8-9am pickup, but the store hours are 10am! How does the pickup work? Anyone know? Thanks in advance.

  • Martin

    if anyone has a reservation in Toronto/GTA that would be amazing!!!

  • Raulrestrepo

    I’ve been trying all night in the GTA/ burlington stores and nothing….. I want the white 64gb!!!

  • zbgo0d

    did this even happen in calgary?  i was trying for a while when the reservations “went live” but they never seemed to?  all unavailable 

  • initram5

    For how long will this be the way they are selling it? Do you think for next week they will have enough phones in stock to sell them normally?

  • we will all try it again tonight…

  • we will all try it again tonight…

  • Danada

    Just now I received an email from fido saying my order was shipped and it would take 4 business days to arrive. I clicked the supplied tracking number and found that its only a 25 minute drive away in the city next to mine. I imagine I’ll be getting a call from the store I chose today. Lol 4 Business days, although with how long I’ve already waited who knows

  • Rqei

    DO you have to pay for the Device only or with your contract with for example Rogers – service upgrade fees? ect… or do they just bill it to your Rogers account?

  • Dumontgirard

    You can do with any carrier.

  • Alex

    If you an existing customer it will be billed to your monthly one.

  • Aksh

    Anyone have any success reserving a 16Gb model at any of the GTA Apple stores? My pre-order has yet to even ship, so I may opt to do this. 

  • PeterUpNorth

    Tuesday 18 Edmonton telus store in bonnie doon mall still has lots of iPhone 4s in stock .

  • 6S

    Same here. It was ridiculous. I tried and tried. Nothing. Maybe tonight we’ll have more luck. 

  • Poochi

    looks like most people don’t want to sign a contract 🙂

  • I got it before 9 actually. it was around 8:55 PM

  • I got it for the Ste-Catherine Store.  but you got to be quick otherwise the reservations gets unavailable. I reserved for 4-5 PM. I showed up at 4:35 because work was a bit hectic. lots of people were activating at the same time so they told me I had to wait till 5 pm to activate but then an agent showed up at 4:50 and I made my activation. They were super quick and painless… that’s how I like my HUP to be made!

  • Donald

    I was able to reserve 16GB and 32GB at both black at eaton centre store tonight.  I went to website at 8:55 pm and reserved for pick up tomorrow – Wednesday.

  • Shi

    Will the reservation be available before 9 ? 

  • 6S

    Nothing at 9 Mountain Time. Maybe at 10? The reserve page keeps loading…not showing even the phones are unavailable now. Maybe they are updating the page? Hope so. 

  • Peter

    still not up yet

  • 6S

    Went live. No 64 GB in Calgary

  • Yjason

     it mean it’s out of stock. they just don’t want to tell you.

  • Yjason

    once there is reservation available, say Monday. Then the next few days should be unavailable all the time. Because the stores have to wait for new shipments.

  • Jonemike

    you must be the only one seeing it take you to ipad reservation

  • Muzammilkool

  • luverne.tln@gmail.com

    Can you get an unlocked iphone 4S with the reservation system?

  • Wonivek

    The mall is open.  the Apple store has classes going on usually starting at 8 AM.  For the case fo this reservation (iPhone4S), go to into the store (the doors will be closed but unlocked), check in and they will take care of you.

  • Gerry18

    I was able to reserve mine after numerous “time out” sessions. Best time to hit the refresh button is between 9-9:20pm, you’ll see the inventory stock on what’s available. That’s what I did.

  • Cooperfinley

    The reservation system is crap. It is pathetic that the server cannot handle the load.
