    Well, I just got the FutureShop and BestBuy fliers(flyers?) for this week and they both have the Torch in it. No mention of 'coming soon'... just 'new'.

    I think we will be okay for Friday...

    And it states for Rogers, Bell and Telus...

    Just for fun I went over to BestBuy.ca and searched for "Torch". I didn't find the phone but I found four accessories. I checked In-Store availability for the OEM Holster and all stores in my area have stock. It doesn't confirm a release on Friday but they're certainly getting ready.

    What's going on with Bestbuy Gelzz?
    i called to double check if I could buy out phone out. The rep told me that I cannot.
    I was like huh that's what I was told by when I made my deposit. Shes like what deposit. I said the pre order for The Blackberry Torch 9800, You know the 50 dollar deposit to put a name for one.
    She's like Oh, well from what I know you can't buy out, you need to renew your contra ... that's when I cut her off and said well that's not I was told when I made the deposit, I made sure and asked the questions before I made the deposit, and I was assured that it was ok wether or not your an existing or new customer.
    The she goes by saying well on the website it states only for New Customers. I said Double check that because there's nothing on the Ad ! So how can you say that to me.
    She's like, hold on ... pause .. then she goes well I don't know just call back tomorrow and speak to the Manager.

    I was like ahhhh Ok. I will do that.

    Compared to the US launch where the date was confirmed and known to everyone, AT&T stores had live units a week in advance and were fully stocked on the day of the release... I think I speak for most everyone here saying the Canadian carriers (except maybe for Rogers) get an F for communication. We are 36 hours away from expected release and I wouldn't bet a dollar that the Torch will be available on Friday. Pretty sad, really.

    100% agree.. I know we're not the normal population here and they don't have the masses waiting for word, but at the end of the day, it's not right!

    I've tried to keep that idea about it, "this ain't no apple launch" but it would just burn me to no end if it does in fact launch Friday and I'm not able to get my hands on one! I'm sure you understand.

    Using the WebID codes for Futureshop.ca in the ad posted by Fr3Incr (thanks!) brings up the phones. They are not for sale online and you cannot check for store availability. However, the pre-order text does say: "your new BlackBerry Torch will be ready to pick up starting Sept. 24".

    Wow... anything to get you off the phone eh.

    I think we all (Torontonians ?) should go to the flagship store (Across from Eaton Centre) to get our phone Friday Morning. If they don't have it (like they told us when we gave them the money) they we ask for some compensation for wasting our time. Best Buy, and carriers should of been WAY more organized... Telling us that they want to do a last minute "update to the OS" is no excuse. Its been a month since this confirmed date of Sept 24th. There should be no change. Period.

    (Feel better with all that typed out lol. Still doesn't solve anything though)
