BTW, there's at least one person whose S8+ Orchid Grey has shipped (on Thursday). Cannucklove, post # 776.
Also, agreed with you on all points concerning the blame game:
1/ Rogers (or any other carrier) never said "Will ship by 17th for pre-orders".
2/ Not sure why anyone blames Rogers, as none of the other carriers have communicated anything to their customers with regards to the 17th shipping either.
3/ There's no need for Rogers (or any other carrier) to notify the customers if the preorders are not shipped by the 17th, as they never guaranteed it.
I got a shipment confirmation on Wednesday night for an S8+ Black. Can I be certain that my local store has recieved it by Monday morning?
