Well if u ever pre order with Bell, it's the same thing. They do not offer updates on the pre orders until it ships out unfortunately. I know this as my cousin is still waiting for his black S8+ with ore order from Bell.
It is less about the pre-order than it is about the fact all the reps say different things while I still get hosed by Rogers. I only stayed with them this time because they have Roam like Home which is perfect for my trip in June.
You will get that with all reps of all companies sadly though. They are doing the same over with Bell. Giving him different answers everytime he calls them. In the end, research the companies really closely and see.
All I know is after racking up a 30 thousand dollar phone bill Telus is off the table.
