    oh im in Brampton.
    I have a store somewhat near me at both Bramelea City Center and @ Bovaird and Hwy 10. Ill check with those guys see if they say anything.
    I would check with that guy again though to make sure he just wasn't giving you a random date.

    Rumour I heard through back channels, could be garbage, was 3 more weeks till they release it. Don't know if that was 3 weeks from yesterday when I was told or the weekend when they found out? They were very confident in the timeline.

    Just wondering how much you guys think Rogers will (or should) charge for the 9800 on a 3 years contract? Ps: don't tell us for free or 99cents it will not happened on the launch week

    PLUS

    Do you think Rogers will ease up the HUP program (like they did for the Iphone4), just upgraded for the 9700 last Jan and already approved to upgrade to Iphone4 but I don't want it. Hopefully the same kind of approval will be possible for the 9800...

    I talked to our business account manager and he said $199 on a 3 year.

    I'm hoping it'll actually be $99-$149 though. =)

    wondering what's the strategic point for Rogers to hold it? To create a demand for it?
    Well they are not creating a demand for it but more frustrations from all of us

    Yeah, I logged into my Rogers account and a huge banner at the top was like 'YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED FOR AN IPHONE 4 FOR $159'

    That's great.....what about the Torch? Can I get the Torch for the same price? =)

    Yea, I know, us horrible 1 post people who've not been graced with 4000+ posts upon registration. Did you even read the article, or are you too good for that? Maybe have someone read it to you...probably easier that way.

    did you even read this post.

    "but Canada will also get this smartphone by the fall through Bell Mobility"

    Where in that sentence or even that article do you see that bell will be getting it first? By the "Fall", that means nothing at all. If you go and read other messages from other carriers for example rogers, they said this phone will be coming out in the next couple of weeks when RIM first announced this phone, So how do you know that rogers won't be getting it first. "The next couple of weeks" is sooner than "fall"

    until bell or rogers or any other phone company in canada gives an official release date, you can't say bell will be getting it first because face it YOU DON"T KNOW!

    I had asked a friend to get me the Torch from ATT in CA to bring back to Canada and the sales guy said they just sold the last one! WTF.

    Friend then asked if he knows another ATT store around the area and he said he doesnt know. WTF x2

    No, I actually have a job so I have to balance time between doing work and reading this.

    Just spoke with our Rogers business acct rep. He said the current chatter is seeing BM first. But, RIM may waive exclusivityto increase exposure of the device.

    Bottom line is we don't know which Canadian carrier will release it first or when they will release it. There is a lot of speculation floating around, everyone claims their source is reliable, but in the end until the carriers make an official announcement we are just left guessing.

    Just stay patient and good news will come soon enough

    I heard it will be middle of september, but again nobody can state for sure.

    I hope it is soon as if not i will drive across the border = 3 min drive and buy one from AT&T and unlock it, well i may do so too if rogers RACKS the price up.

    Yeah, I logged into my Rogers account and a huge banner at the top was like 'YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED FOR AN IPHONE 4 FOR $159' ...... TOO and was wonder if Rogers will DO this for the 9800, but i am will to bet NO NO NO as they never did this for the 9700 ... Rogers is Stupid not to do so and sell lots of CANADIAN MADE PHONES as APPLE is dispicapble (My opinion is based soley on my word)...

    y can't rogers just tell us a date.....whats the big deal anyway? regarless of them not saying ne thing or a date being released ppl r still gonna buy....the only differecne is if they keep on holding out n being stupid about it everyone is gonna go south untill they can't wait ne longer. I called rogers 4 times and everytime the answer was differnt, one rep even said we may not get it at all n then i told her rogers said "coming weeks" and then she said o yea.....what a joke this is and its getting outta hand now with the suspense. HURRY UP OR ELSE IM TAKING MY 2 LINES I HAVE WITH YOU 2 TELUS!!!!! ATLEAST GIVE US A OFFICIAL DATE!!
