    Damn its not looking good

    I have been out in oshawa/whitby area and the only store that said they were getting them tomorrow was the Rogers store in the mall

    And it sucks cause I got to play with the dummy units and it felt so good in my hand. and also cause it felt like a long add time to get to today and now they are saying no. Its definately not awesome sauce thats for sure

    Very disappointed that Jimmy Balls and The Greek couldn't get their act together enough to pull the trigger in time. This was an obvious high demand item, especially with the highly anticipated OS6 on it. They all fail, but Bell did notify their customers 1st, Rogers waits until the final hours of the final day before launch, booo!!

    if youve already ordered it will it still be shipping tomorrow? or will it ship the day stores get it?
    From my experience, it'll ship at the same time or even AFTER the stores get it...

    unfortunately.

    Well, I went ahead and pre-ordered the Torch at Future Shop. I figured I'll get a free car charger out of this wait, since I've been waiting months now.

    They said New Activations have priority, grr. They better get it a lot in stock!

    Gee... I like how a Canadian company gets the 9800 released on time with AT&T but can't hold up the Sept 24th release time in their own country! ...or is the infamous Canada "snail mail" Post to blame here?

    I heard they have had at least one tractor trailer of them stolen in Mexico so not sure if that is screwing things up.

    and even with all this there is still really nothing from telus saying anything

    unless i have missed it, the only "official" news i have seen regrading this damn thing was saying that it was coming out on the 24th on the blog

    I was in my local Telus dealer this morning and the owner said there is a conference call to discuss the Torch on Friday so all dealers should know what is going on sometime tomorrow.

    I just called Telus customer service (*611) and he said that the torch will be out tomorrow. He said they havent received anything regrading a delay. if they did they wouldent recieve the delay news until tomorrow but he was sure that some stores will have the torch tomorrow

    I knew that there would be a delay for the torch (remember the bold 9000? It was to be released @ spring 08, didn't come until end of summer)that's why I went ahead and got my torch 2 weeks after the US release. $500 US well spent

    And the website still says the 24! Pathetic! Honestly - I'm giving this up and relaxing now. My Rogers store has assured me I can do the early HUP and I'm third on their list, so when they get it, they will call me. It comes when it comes but BOOOOO Rogers!!!

    An update from my side of the world.

    I just got back from Andre's Audiotronics (Those of you on the west coast of Canada will know them) and the manager stated that the Torch on Telus is a go for tomorrow. With a catch.

    It's being "released" tomorrow. And by "released" he means from their warehouse. Which means stores won't be seeing it until early next week. I was skeptical so he called the warehouse and confirmed it.

    He was so sure, I put down a deposit on one to guarantee one on the first shipping.

    What still boggles my mind, is how this thing wasn't shipped to the retail outlets. What kind of "release" on the 24th is there, if nobody can buy it???

    Heck, my wife earlier today went to a local Telus store, and they couldn't even tell her when it was releasing and that they "100%" for sure were not getting them this week. That was all they could say.

    What a gong show.

    actually they didnt really cause the official torch page on rogers still shows 24th and a cr promised that that i can get it in store on the 24th in the middle of the afternoon. Most people dont go to a rogers subforum for news.

    Definitely no harm in trying. I'll be doing a quick check as well since I drive right by a store anyways.

    On the red board Miranda posted a comment stating the official date is now Sept 30. They waited until 2 pm to announce, they close shop at 5.

    I really hope all this delay stuff isn't to create a artifical "buzz" about this product. I mean I know they want to ship it and release it as bug free as possible but common to be this in the air about a release date a day before the "posted" release date is unreal

    Latest news came from the Telus store today, the manager of the store confirms 100% that the torch will be shipped out tomorrow from the warehouses. Expect orders pre-ordered from the site Monday or Tuesday, and most stores before Thursday.

    Telus Blackberry Torch CONFIRMED shipping September 24th, 2010.

    Just left a local rogers store. Played with the dummy phone for a bit and asked the 2 guys when they are getting it (without saying anything about our findings)

    He said they will have it 100% tomorrow between 1030-1pm. That when they get deliveries.
