@Meowmix I completely agree. It is frustrating that they create this reservation if they cant keep up with a demand especially for the people whos numbers are 10 and up. I could understand if I was 25-50-100+ not getting one, but being #4 on the list, I find it absolutely retarded they can't get 4 of these to carriers.
I used to wait in line like you (I remember those years speaking with you on the forums like we still do now) but no longer wait in line and haven't in years.
1G I bought of someone random from Craigslist the year it came out in the states (he bought in jersey) and I met him at Fairview mall. I was one of the first in Canada to have an iphone and wish I had kept that original iphone.
I waited in line at Rogers King St. west for the 2g 6 years ago I believe and had issues upgrading in store due to Rogers software and walked out of the store phoneless that year.
Another year I waited in line at the Eaton Center kiosk for the 3g I believe and waited hours for activation to complete but got the phone that day.
iPhone 4 and 5 I actually can't remember but must have gone smoothly.
iphone 6 was smooth reservation as well.
Not so much this year. Glad I pre-ordered from Apple a back up Black model (also have jet black but 1-3 weeks) to arrive tomorrow to my doorstep.
I think I'm getting too old for this!!!!!!!
I was #68 for iPhone 7 128GB Jet Black and today I am down to #52 and still OPEN. Do you think they will ship mine tonight?
