    Ouch! That long?? Well it look all good for Rogers customers then...

    So at best buy how does the shipments work? If 1 or 2 carriers are pushing through for friday will they carry those carriers phone? Like does each carrier ship to bestbuy seperately?

    I believe they are doing what any good employee should do. (Cover their employers and their own ***)

    If they were to tell you yeah sure come in first thing and guess what... the truck making the delivery broke down.. well now they're in a situation were they told you one thing, you showed up at the store and now they're red faced with no device for you..

    I personally would understand, but there are the few out there that would throw a ******* fit!


    Typically the store would like them in the day before, it's just good business practice... but who the **** knows.....

    Telus - just changed the 24th to "coming soon" like 2 days ago ... So it doesnt look to good
    Bell- Wont get it til Oct. 1
    Virgin - haha I think this is the first time mentioning it on the forum.. so ppl probably dont care.

    Place your bets...

    Also BESTBUY changed their 24th to "coming soon" as well

    Okay I just did a little test...

    I spoke to my Best Buy, they said official word from RIM is all carriers delayed... I then immediately called the Rogers Plus which is directly across the street... the guy told me at the moment none have come in but they are expecting to sell them Friday morning, first come first serve...

    Now it's either Best Buy is seriously misinformed (Very possible) or it could be that only Roger's Plus stores are getting the initial shipment.. just throwing it out there...?

    I would think Rogers ships to there own stores before the ship to third party retailers.

    Also its so hard to keep up on this thread geeze! It grows like 3 pages an hour!

    Well I know the manager of the Rogers store in a mall so I'll be going there. Opens at 10 am. My kid want this phone aswell. Maybe I'll bring him too. He can sit at the store while I'm go karting for 2 hours haha.

    Probably an hour or two before. How about you?

    Haha yeah 45 min sounds about right. I just want to go kart. I got this one month season pass as a gift from work. So I was thinking what better time to use it then a day off waiting at the mall for this phone :P
