    maybe you know something we don't but how can u trust best buy?

    they didn't even know they were taking pre orders when the ad went up on their site...

    but i am not saying your wrong cause it still might happen!

    but i am hoping for the best! Rogers is more likely to release this friday then telus for sure!
    I dunno what best buy you went to but the one I went to (there was 3 different stores) knew about the pre order and informed me also about the changed date. But at the same time Rogers is also under Best buy in that pre order ad. So at this point, yea it could still be on the 24th but it could also be passed on a later date. Remember it was BELL who first changed there date officially on there site.
    Rogers and Telus only had it posted on Twitter and the Rogers Bored. Telus never changed anything on there official page.

    So again at this point anything goes. But again it wouldn't surprize me that it's been pushed for all company's really. BUT again that's another BUT if rogers releases it in 4 day's and counting -THEN HORRAH for the Robers !! Boo for Telus and Bell

    I could see Rogers sticking with the release date, they would be the only carrier (If Telus delays) to offer the Torch and could definitely see some positive sales because of it... Also Rogers is basically the AT&T of Canada, they seem to have a little more push and pull than the other carriers..

    yes I do agree with that. I guess it's the waiting game

    Here's a little positive info..

    Just had to fix some issues with my Rogers' services.. I made sure to ask every single person I spoke to about the Torch.. they all said they've been given information about it launching on the 24th.. no talk of delays...


    Take it as it is.. sometimes no news, is good news..

    Haha Rick, That's a lot of effort but an amazing idea. I'd love to see the look of the Rogers reps when you cruise in there to return your unlocked Rogers device while talking on the new Telus one.. haha

    Well that's what's absurd to me about this. If one company releases it, then it only makes sense for me to buy it without contract and slap it under my own carrier. Telus obviously already has the service books and stuff for it if other people are running unlocked at&t devices. Since Best Buy has the 14 day return policy, viola..gots me my phone!

    I'm not sure...why would I be limited? If I unlock it and put it thru my existing Telus plan..why would that affect anything? I've never unlocked anything before, so i don't know all the in's and out's, but not sure why it would affect my talk/data plan.

    @Knowledge
    yea they would open late lol hahahaha but my phone is on hold at best buy heheheheehehe but like i said I can stand in line lol maybe bring you coffee lol :P

    @JDel - that could come true - I was on there site and when you look at there smart phone line up on the top ( this may not be something big, but jus thought i would jus share) they just added the Torch as most Populare lol so your conVersation might be true after all because that wasn't there before.

    That's good news!! The only problem is if you talk to a different CS rep they'll tell you they're not getting the Torch at all haha.. I'll feel much better when I see it posted on their site, or better yet, i'm posting from mine on Friday.
