    I also find it odd that the release date is suppose to be in 4 days yet the rogers website does not have any info on this device.

    so i talked to rogers retention today and they are sending me a 9800 in the mail for $199. they said that retention receives new devices about 1 week or 2 later than the stores so i have to call them every day to find out if they received the phone so they can send it out to me. so basically my file reads that i am eligible for a torch at $199 but its up to me to call and have them send it to me.

    does this sound strange to anyone?
    Was just about to post the same thing

    Spoke to them last night (they're called "Customer Relations" now, not retention).
    She noted in my account that I was eligible for the early upgrade, and said that I would have to call on the day it arrives and they would mail it (nothing about them getting a week later). I asked if I could just pick up at a store and she said that isn't possible because they use a different system and she had no way of making the early upgrade available for them to see.

    Ah, but MY store is calling customer relations on my behalf and, if I'm eligible, they will just tell them. Of course, it still doesn't guarantee that I'll be able to actually get it from the store or have to have it mailed to me...

    Don't think it's going to happen. I chatted with the Customer Relations person for a while (got an amazing plan out of her), and she said there was no way to update the system to allow me to buy in store.

    If you can follow Jvictor's plan maybe you stand a chance
    I might pop into my local store and ask...

    There is a button for "Where to Buy" for Canada. it takes you to a fomr you can fill out that notifies you by e-mail and asks who your carrier is......hope that is also a good sign.......waiting, waiting!!!

    Actually the Where to Buy button is for the States. If you hit the Canada one it says "get updates" - and hence the form you fill in. They are unable to say where in Canada you can buy as it's not anywhere yet!

    Posted this in the other thread aswell thought I might share with you guys who aren't following the other one.

    Ok guys not to scare anyone but.. I called this girl I deal with at a rogers store and asked her to update me on the Torch. She said they still aren't able to order the amount of phones they need for there store. She said usually when the ordering becomes available the phones arrive the following monday. She said her guess was its going to be delayed.

    Lets all hope Rogers pulls off a miracle and actually spends money on same day shipping! haha cheap ********.

    They are allowing me to buy in the store. I got her to note it. They have to follow their notes; so I got the reference number. It happened to me before where they noted the in store buy. It turned into a huge argument, but in the end they have to follow those notes and I got the phone

    For all of the people thinking they are going to get it from CR a week or two after, good luck! I was waiting for 3 weeks after the Christmas rush in 09 for the bold 9000 that went on sale for a cent. They ended up sending me the 9700 because I bitched so much. Anyways, be one of the people that call and wait on hold from 7 am to get connected to someone at 8 if you really want it. One rep told me that they're anticipating a shortage similar to the iphone.

    I duno, CR told me that cause the stores are owned by independent ownerS they can't set up a pick up in store.
    This is my first time waiting on a release of a new device so I'm not sure if this is normal. Dates all over the place, no one confirming an actual date. Phones out in 2 days yet everyones all over the place lol
