Just curios if anyone has had there position in line move to shipped? i was positioned at 189 and i moved to 59 a couple hours ago, so i assume 130 have already been shipped! if they keep shipping at this rate then i should have my phone at launch! this is my first pre order from rogers, ive been a rogers customer for 19 years! i was an inch away from moving to telus just so i can get the apple watch - till rogers gave me a loyalty plan i couldn't refuse so i decided to wait it out and good thing i did!
Going to give Rogers the benefit of the doubt this time around as shipping of devices (both phones and watches) seems delayed. I had an appointment in my local Apple Store scheduled for 3:00 to 3:30 window today and I received this this morning from Apple at 3:25 EST.
I ordered my 512 XS Max Grey as soon as orders went live on the 14th. It doesn't say I won't get it today...but it doesn't say I will get it today either. This launch has been messy top to bottom with shipping of devices and if Apple can't get them in time to their retail stores then I would think Rogers is having difficulty getting volume too. I am also stuck in the Rogers reservation system at #3 Open for the same phone model, #4 for aluminum Space Grey AW Series 4 44mm and my wife's aluminum gold 40mm AW 4 just moved from #6 Open to "In Progress" yesterday at 11 am after not moving since they went live on Rogers Reservation system also on the morning of the 14th.

Final update! I walked into the Apple store hoping they would have some watches available and luckily they did. I cancelled my Rogers reservation and bought the 44 gray from Apple. Setting up the watch to cellular took me less then 3 mins without any help from the Rogers or Apple rep. Literally 6 clicks on the screen later and cellular was active and set up.
Still waiting here for any word from rogers....We have already all waited a year for AW support so whats a little longer...
Just called the rogers store I reserved the watch at. They do not have them in yet, only have the demo models at the moment.
He said they may come in later today or tomorrow...ugh
