    Rogers BlackBerry Torch 9800 will "begin arriving" on September 27th, online ordering available on the 24th | MobileSyrup.com


    More proof.. You can order your torch online tomorrow but can't pick it up in person till next week.

    I too will be very dissappointed if the torch does not come out tomorrow. I also called my store. A flagship Store as well very large very busy and always gets product first and they have not yet received their shipment. They have heard the rumour that it may be delayed but the store has not yet been officially told that its happening.

    They said to call in the morning. Their shipments arrive at 9am and they will know for sure at that point.

    yes i am wrong and you are right. i hope you love the torch you're getting tomorrow. please post a pic so we can all drool.

    its useless posting anything here because some people are too stupid to know they are getting real information. we spend over $20,000 a month with rogers. im pretty sure if they called us to say no torch tomorrow, theres no torch tomorrow.

    Unfortunately guys, im gonna have to ride with the OP on this one....i have been hopeful as anyone else to pick up my torch tomorrow morning but I looked at rogers redboard and they have stated the launch has been pushed back to Sept 30th and CTVS GLOBE & MAIL also reports that rogers has confirmed the release to be now on the 30th. It is stupid that we have had to wait this long but with Telus and Bell both pushing there launces till the end of this month lets hope that all carriers push out the best possible torch that they can. I would rather wait a week and be satisfied with the product they push out then get it a week early and complain.

    It's such a shame some people are in such a state of denial. They seem to want to believe only 1 side and not the other side. They have no problem believing the people that claim they talked to some high rollers that are "in the know" but when someone posts facts they get all upset and say things like "Where's your proof" or "I Like how the OP knows hes wrong and disappeared"

    Too Funny.

    Here's hoping... it really wouldn't be that crazy if some stores did in fact receive shipment tomorrow...

    Delayed until Sept 30th until further notice. Word is trickling down to all the rogers stores and retail partners as of today so by days end everybody should be on the same page. Sucks because now I have to wait another week and I wanted it a month ago.

    whitebarry, the OP is there, 3pm and hour before you posted.
    who cares so its delayed, its just a phone? Would it be a surprise if it was delayed even longer?

    I didn't say the OP.. I was referring to Chrisd534 and whomever else has their titties in a twist over a gadget.

    I'm a gadget freak but whatever..there are other things to keep me happy!

    lmao

    ok so i just wanted to share some early news with guys but some people freaked out lol.

    glad to see we have some normal people on here too though.

    as some have posted, its only a week and its only a phone AND its better the friggin thing works out of the box.

    6 months from now we'll be trading the torch in for the latest and greatest BB anyway.

    Can't say that I'm not a little bit disappointed but a week isn't terribly long a time, what's another week after all this time?? At least this way I don't have to fumble to install the latest OS if that were the case. =)

    Bummer about the alleged delay. I managed to fondle one today at a rogers store.

    Real nice device, really noticed the weight difference from the iphone. It felt good though.
