    I'm no where near trying to start rumors or anything, and I didn't feel like putting this in the other thread because it could be overlooked. I called Telus today in order to pre-order my phone so maybe they could ship it tomorrow. I talked with the guy, and he says. "Trouble is, there are chances are we will be experiencing another delay due to the amount of units that are in demand. The latest it will be bumped back will be October 8th."

    He went on to say that stores would be my best bet to get one (closest one is 2 hours away) and even then there is a chance that they will be sold out and won't receive new shipments for up to three weeks. Also, if I was to order online he said the phone could take up to two months to get to me. I don't live that far away from anywhere, I'm 2 hours south east of Calgary, Hanna, if any of you know where that is.

    So whats with this? I'd appreciate if someone else called Telus support tonight and see what they have to say. I'm not waiting that long for my Torch, i'll go to Bell.

    By no means meant to scare anyone, but with all this uncertainty it's impossible to see the end of it. I don't want to wait until December for a phone I've been waiting for since May.

    Well they do put almost all stock to store fronts anticipating higher sales through retail outlets vs CSR orders.

    Id call right back and speak to 3 or 4 different CSRs and see what else you can get out of them.

    I posted in the other thread a couple of minutes ago about my doubts regarding TELUS. The web site still says "Coming Soon" and I have yet to hear of a single Torch being in stock anywhere, about 36 hours before release. The @TELUSsupport on Twitter did confirm to me that it was going to be available on the 30th but dodged my question about whether dealers were going to have stock on the 30th. I'm on the list at my local corporate store and also at my neighborood dealer and haven't heard from either. At this point, I'll only believe anything when I have the box in my hands. This is easily one of the worst product launch ever. And I don't have much patience left.

    BlackBerry Torch 9800 start arriving at Bell stores | MobileSyrup.com

    Bell has them

    Telus has done some rogue releases in the past, this might be another one.

    Looks like we're going to be "Torched" by Telus.

    To the OP..does Hanna even have a Telus outlet? What about Drumheller? I'm sure they might have some smaller outlets who may not be getting them right away (cuz they are small outfits)..but if I were you I'd be planning on driving to Calgary or Red Deer come Thursday. I've already talked to Best Buy in R.D. and they have them in store..just waiting for release day.

    Don't worry guys. Authorized dealers got a bulletin today sept 28th about the launch of the device and it states it will be released on the 30th. Call them if you don't believe me and need to be reassured ...

    According to the FutureShop web site In-store availability, the Robson store has the Torch for Bell, not for Telus.

    There's some people in here that are reassuring me, but really there's no way to know. Hanna does have 2 Telus outlets, however they aren't stores, and therefore aren't given the same information. My neighboor runs the one and I just talked to him, he has absolutely zero idea when the phone is being released, so that kind of bums me out. I might have to look up some numbers from BestBuy or FS tomorrow and grab one.
