I don’t think people are getting skipped. I believe are concealing their preorders. My status is still open but my number is going down. There is really a stock issue with the phones. Went to my Rogers store locally where I am supposed to pick up my preordered phones. They received no silver phones. All they got so far was space grey and gold. They had 64gb only in stock. They are expecting another shipment of phones around 12 to 3pm. The sales guy took my number and will call if they get any more 256gb phones. At this point, I don’t care of color, just any 256gb phone. We will see how it goes.
I prepaid and ordered mine to home, got an email saying changes were made to my account yesterday - and no shipping email. However my phone was delivered about an hour ago and is currently in my hand restoring from icloud.
Good luck to all those still waiting.
(I ordered early Friday afternoon)
