Well then, it does not make sense that it is an overall system for the whole country, since I only reserved late Friday afternoon, and I immediately got around number 2681 on the list. Now am at 2547 (was at 2551 earlier this morning so not a big change.)

The guy was pretty strict on waiting until tomorrow, even though he admitted he had the devices in boxes ready to go. I jokingly
hinted at bribing him with money but you could tell they had gotten strict instructions from high up the chain.
Anyhow, the guy said he does not expect line ups like for the apple phone, and I told him he might be in for a surprise. I asked about what would be included in the box, wanting to know whether or not the charger with extra battery would be part of the package, but he did not know, had not touched the boxes.
Paid a visit to Telus and Virgin stores as well while I was at it. They only are getting the phones tomorrow in both cases. The guys at Telus did not say much, but the guys at Virgin said that some Blacberry reps paid them a visit, and demonstrated the phone to them. They were quite impressed with it,and said it was a good phone, that it would sell. That was their opinion!
Anyways, just sharing the information I got this morning.
