    Miketko: find a corporate store in your area, not an individual owned/operated (forgot the technical term)

    Cyphon21... don't accept a demo, get an unused one. Do you really want one that has been touched, manipulated and fondled by everyone that has come into the store?

    Hmm, I suppose on friday when I call in I can always try to have them send me to a corporate owned store
    I wonder if I went into a store like "telephone both" had them call rogers to confirm the note on my file and then have them hook me up". HmMm

    The way you know it's a corporate store is if it's a Rogers plus. If it's not a Roger plus it's most likely privately owned

    Probably not.

    Rogers Customer Relations can only note in the internal system that you are eligible for an early upgrade, but can't change the actual upgrade date (which is what the stores will see). So you'll have to call and get them to mail it to you.

    Sucks, but I'm in the same boat.

    I was told by CS that if I had trouble getting one launch day to just call customer service and they would mail one out to me, hope that puts your mind more so at ease.

    i had to call Rogers today to ask a couple questions, and after the gentleman answered my questions he made me aware that i'm eligible for a hardware upgrade. at which point i asked if the torch is still on track to be released on friday, to which he said yes, and said that its available as low as 199

    ...i know, i know another rogers rep story, but just thought i'd share with the class...

    So he said you're eligible. Is it 2 years since your last HUP, or are you a couple of months away - like me?

    Im not worried I'm eligible for an hup, so Imma waltz right in with guns a blazing and say "I hear this is the place where Mr. 9800 is hiding aka Torch!! surrender him to me!!! or I will tear this place down" lol well something like that..

    Here's the deal people:
    Rogers Plus (corporate stores) are going to receive the Torch first - not saying Best Buy or Wireless Wave aren't getting it Friday, just saying your best bet is your nearest Rogers Plus.

    Next, different stores have different delivery schedules. A flagship store like Eaton Centre/Dundas Square might get shipments every day or 3 times a week. While a store in North Toronto, might only get two deliveries a week.

    The Torch's are in the supply chain, how long it takes them to get to your nearest retailer of choice (be it Rogers Plus, Best Buy etc.) depends on that specific stores delivery schedule. Store's that get usual deliveries on Fridays should be seeing Torch's tomorrow. Stores that don't will probably have to wait until Monday.

    Rogers isn't going to put the Torches on UPS trucks for 9 am delivery to every single storeand forgo their logistics infrastructure. Every store knows they are going to get it at a different time, depending on their usual delivery schedule, which is why there is so much confusion in this thread.

    About 4 years ago i signed a 3 year contract on a family plan with 2 Motorola flip phones. about 2 years into that i killed my flip phone and bought a Samsung windows mobile phone, about a year after that i bought my 8310, and then maybe 6 months later i got my 9700 for free through work.

    SHORT ANSWER - i haven't been on contract for almost a year, so no upgrade issues for me.

    because I'm going to be paying for it, and i will be "stuck" with the torch for at least 2 years, i want to make sure its what i want, so im going to hold off for a few weeks i think and see how it goes...but the earlier it gets out, the earlier i can hear how it does in Canada

    Midland is FAR from being north :P it is "South Central" Ontario..

    Though I do bet the local store does low volumes
