    Not that I know of Clarkee.. I don't think you're going to have a problem getting one on release day though.
    I didn't think I'd have a problem getting one release day. I'm going to get retentions a call and see if they can note that I want my HUP to be a BB Torch and I can go on release date with a cheaper plan and new phone!

    I am with Telus in NB. I won't be picking one up on the 24th, but I would if I was eligible for an upgrade...

    I can only upgrade in August 2011, so it will have to wait... I wonder what the product life-cycle is like... I wonder if there will be a new flagship phone by August-September 2011... If so I would wait for the Torch 2 (with hopefully a better screen and more power under the hood)...

    3 year contracts in Canada suck! Wish it was 2 years like in the states. The discount on 2 year terms in Canada is lame...

    I dont think anyone will have problems getting this phone, maybe if you went to a rogers store late in the day but if you went in the morning I can't see there being a problem

    Guess it depends how much money / month you spend with Telus. My monthly plan is about $150/month, and that makes me eligible for their Platinum Perks, which among other things (nice little gifts at christmas time etc) allows me to upgrade my phone once per year for the same deal given to any 3year contract upgrade (hope i'm explaining that correct). So basically even though i'm only 16months in on my 9530, i get to upgrade to the 9800 for $199. Come this time next year, i will be able to upgrade to another phone for whatever their offering on a 3yr sign up.

    I cannot even fathom the fact that we are just TEN days away from picking up this magical device.

    I will be going back to my office after grabbing it in the morning but I am not sure I will be incredibly productive the rest of the day...
