    i had a feeling, that if it were to be delayed they would wait until the last second to announce it. it's just the d*ck thing to do.

    Posted this in the other two rogers torch related threads but thought i would put it out here as well...CTVS GLOBE & MAIL tech section also reports that rogers has confirmed of the release being pushed to the 30th...looks like we will have to wait another week to get our hands on this thing but lets just hope that they put the best possible phone out with the best os so we can be happy when we finally get it.

    Yep! just buy it from the states and stop whinning....its just a phone. Heck what if they delay it for another month? Would you cancel with rogers and move to bell or telus? If not, then why complain.......its just a phone.

    just take it back to bestbuy, if its serious enough, they can deal with it. i'm sure everyone has a back up phone. But really, unless i'm luck, out of all my blackerries i've had i've never sent one in for warranty....

    stupid rogers. STUPID RIM.
    Why the **** didnt they do a simultaneous release? I've been waiting for this phone so long and to settle for another week without a phone (partly because of a ********* of a father I have.) Im going to futureshop tomorrow just in case.
    But oh well nothing I can do. PLease let thursday come quickly./

    Warranty is fine if you buy from the US. Register your PIN with RIM. Already called them before I got my Torch

    Crap!!! I wish I knew that before. I would have bought one a month ago.

    What if I buy a used one?

    Hopefully the delay means that they decided to hold the units back and upgrade the O/S to the most current release, which according to people who have upgraded in the States claim is a significant improvement over the O/S version that was on the original AT&T release.

    If that is the case, then I don't mind waiting another week to get a phone that - out of the box - is as fast as possible, bug free, works with all Rogers features like UMA, and doesn't require an immediate, time consuming update of an unofficial release.

    (On the other-hand, if it isn't the case, and the Canadian carriers end shipping it a week late with an out-dated O/S, then I will be pissed....)

    Yes, they are opening every box and refreshing the OS. Come on people!!!!! That's not what they are doing. Must be supply chain delays. If they are coming out next week they were long ago flashed with OS.

    How about they just don't ship the boxes with the phones with the old O/S, they wait an extra week for the brand new ones coming off the assembly lines with the updated O/S?

    I'm no logistics expert (I just play one on TV) but that is how I'd do it...

    Why do it? Because the phones would get a much better review in the Canadian press with the latest O/S than they would with the origional O/S, and it will mean less tech support calls down the road.

    (Then again, maybe the carriers are really just jerks and are having fun yanking us around....)

    I went to best buy this morning when it opened. And rep told me the Torch is postponed to next Friday. Also, I can't buy it outright even I already pre-order for the phone. So, I decided to check it out in Rogers store nearby. The guy told me the same thing, the Torch will be released next Friday. and Rogers will not sell the Torch outright without 3 years contracts during first few weeks after Torch launched in Rogers. He says I can buy it outright couple weeks later when they have enough devices in stock. Sign....I'm thinking to buy it from states. Feels so bad now....

    Umm, the Torch is being release Thursday the 30th.. not Friday.. Best Buy and Rogers Plus stores will begin selling them on Thursday the 30th.......

    Just wanted to clarify.

    I donít know what the reason is but I doubt itís supply. Have you heard of one person in the states being not being able to get a 9800 because theyíre sold out? If RIM/Carriers could be selling them today, even one or two per location, they would.

    White Apple iPhone 4 finally coming to Rogers? | MobileSyrup.com

    Reading above, look at the Rogers screenshot, Torch 9800 seems to have a 50$ rebate (goes for 549.99)

    Also if you are looking to buy it outright, don't drive all over town looking. Just call around. There are tons of Rogers stores in my city (corporate or otherwise) and I called around when I was looking for my 9700. Some would sell it outright, others wouldn't. Its hit n miss for the most part.

    Do you think that was because you ended up going to a non-corporate store? i.e. not a roger's plus store?

    On a side note, i asked this in another forum as well, but maybe the wise people in this forum would have better advice. I was thinking of trying to go to a Futureshop to get the torch, on rogers, was wondering if you think they'd be more likely to sell it pff contract since they generally work on commissions?

    I read in another post that future shop sold someone a Bell 8900 so i though "what the **** I'll call Rogers and see if CR can send me my 9800 today" well the girl said it wasnt in the system yet and to call really early tomorrow because its going to be busy. The Rogers rep said she was so surprised on how many calls they got on Sep 24 for the Torch, she said they didn't anticipate such a large demand for the Torch as everyone still has a hard-on for the iPhone. anyways I'll be calling at 8am sharp tomorrow morn.
