OK some updates although take this how you will once you see the source. I went to a mall today had to ask about my iPad and travelling etc at the Apple store. Well I asked the sales rep about iPhone 4. He said believe it or not they had no information about pre-order, pricing, etc. I asked him if they atleast had gotten units in by now in anticipation for Friday? he said he couldn't tell me that but later he told me one that that answered that anyway. So there will be no pre-orders it's Monday and no one has changed their site to offer pre-orders. He did tell me there is no white iPhones, aha they do have units already LOL but if this is true I highly doubt anyone else will have white units if the Apple store doesn't. He asked me if I was getting the phone and I said well if there was pre-orders I was getting a fully unlocked phone but without pre-order I don't want to stand in line for nothing. He told me that if I arrive at the mall by 6AM or earlier I WOULD be leaving with a phone. I don't know how he was so sure, without pre-orders I'm not even that sure but he seemed very confident so I guess I'll try my luck. I'll tweet when I'm there and if any TiPbers are there come chat. I'll update this on Friday with a or a LOL

Prices are out
16GB iPhone 4 Unlocked $659 and 32GB unlocked $779 so which are you getting now? I was planning to get 16GB like my current 3G and my iPad but I was planning to spend up to $800 so looks like I'll be getting the 32GB

I am going for the 16gb. I have the 32gb 3GS and I never used more than a third of the available space. I guess I still have a couple of days to take the decision.
Man, I can't believe Apple hasn't even updated their webpage, I wish there was more information about the launch.
Yeah but don't forget now you'll be able to do HD video and the still camera is better. You gonna sell your 3Gs? cause you'll more than make up the difference. Is there a Fido store in Eaton Center? cause right after I'll need to get the microSIM.

Yeah, there is a Fido Store almost below the Apple Store on the lowest level right at the food court so it will be a short trip for you. I will have to do the same thing but with (bloody) Rogers, I hope they are available because I would like to use the phone right away otherwise I will be too tempted to bring a knife over my current chip. And you are right about the HD camera, I am sure that those videos are going to be HEAVY, so maybe is will be better to go with 32GB...

This is perfect. I am going to the Fairview Mall, the Rogers Store is literally right beside the Apple store. Just called the Apple Store, they are opening at 7, so I will leave my house around 6, head over to the mall, grab a phone, grab a SIM and be out. Yay.

Yeah Apple stores usually open at 7am on launch day. I would like to get to Eaton Center at about 5 but unfortunately the earliest I can be there is 6:30 so hopefully not many people will buy the 32GB. Yeah Rogers has the microSIM now I'm going to Fido tomorrow to get mine so I wont have to wait again on Friday. It's $10 though I wonder if Apple will give microSIMs with the phone like they did with the iPad cause then it would be free???

I'm thinking that too but don't want to chance it. I wonder if I could get the microSIM from Fido then if I get it from Apple return the Fido one. I just think it's stupid to pay $10 for something you could get for free what do you guys think?

Hey mates, I just got a bit of information about MicroSIM cards. They told me at the Apple Store that the phone will not come with the SIM when you purchase the phone outright but they will have them for sale at the store. They will also activate your existing number on the new MicroSIM for you if thats what you wish. So I guess that makes purchasing the SIM card at the carrier store unnecessary. Hope this helps.

Just called Apple, they will have the MicroSIMs in store. They will be offered the same as the iPhone 4, first come, first serve.

1) Fairview is not a big hotspot, most people will be going to the Eaton centre.
2) Not many people will be willing to shell out $800 for a phone
3) There is a Rogers store next door, I will lure some traffic over there
4) I just called the Fairview Apple store and they are not expecting a huge rush
5) One of my co-wrokers husband works for Apple and I have been talking to him and he may be able to get me one.
