    mike, the only way to buy unlock in Canada is by Apple online reservation. Tomorrow in Apple stores, rogers, bell, bestbuy, to only name those, they will sell carrier locked iPhones.

    same, that is why I reserved with Rogers instead of buying an unlocked iPhone from Apple.com

    i wish i thought about reserving with rogers first thing instead of apple. i reserved with apple at like 5:30am friday morning and my delivery date is oct 9. ordered from rogers the following day and it looks like rogers might come before oct 9th. if, but i have no way of knowing.

    it depends alot on what location you set up pick up, if its a busier location than it may take longer. I called my location today and they told me they had 17 phones in and another delivery later in the night and another delivery tomorrow. I have no idea how many are ahead of me at that location.

    no one seems to know what the numbers actually mean on "my rogers"

    This is a real mess haha! I personally reserved too late. Can only blame myself since I wasn't sure to want to upgrade first.

    I'm surprised by that, I know Bell corporate is allowing only new sign ups and hardware upgrades. Staff aren't even allowed to get the device until next week to allow sufficient stock for customers and the Rogers location across the way is the same rules, no outright, no staff upgrades/purchases from store stock.

    I'm surprised as well. I'm still about 5 people back. The rogers system is jammed and its taking forever. They already told me over phone I could buy out right and they took my name down now and asked which one I wanted with no mention of not being able to buy so ill cause a rukus if I wait for nothing haha.

    I'm 123rd in line but my status is still OPEN. I called the store and they said it will be SHIPPED then DELIVERED. I'll get emails confirming the status change when they occur. Hopefully Monday.

    maybe for the apple one because it's unlocked. But about the Rogers one, wont you have like 2 upgrades? I feel like you will have to pay twice! Maybe I am wrong, but I'd make sure

    I'm starting to think I should have gone to the store on Friday and tried to pick one up. Unfortunately its not worth losing a day's pay.
