I just called Rogers sales department. They don't even have a shipment from Samsung yet. Apparently the independent Rogers dealers get sent phones first, because their stock is small, then Rogers gets it after that. So at this point they don't know when they are going to get the phones from Samsung, but it shouldn't be more than a week until they get it in their warehouse. This was all according to the sales person on the phone. In fact, they don't even have the phone listed in their system when they look up phones, which is strange to me. I guess until they get it in the warehouse, the phone isn't even entered into the system.

That is very weird because the Rep that I talked to said that there aren't any white ones in stock just grey ones so I'm pretty sure the warehouse has grey but not white?

Every rep will give you the wrong / incorrect info. Believe me I called 10 times and got told different answers. The reps have no info and they just give out wrong info which is sad because we sit here believing them / waiting around.

So true... 😕 But I think it makes sense that they have grey ones at the warehouse because they did say the white one was out of stock whereas the grey one, I was able to purchase. I don't wanna wait forever haha. Impatience for the win! 😄

I ordered a grey one, and it's still backordered. I also ordered it at 10:30am on the 30th. I'm just annoyed more at Samsung than Rogers by the fact that they didn't send out enough stock beforehand.

I just called rogers for the **bleep** of it, to see if they had grey in stock but not white, and I was told by the rep that the systems show both are in stock and should ship out in the next day or 2... so we shall see how true that is

They better ship out tomorrow, I can't wait! I've called like 20 different stores, (rogers, bestbuy, futureshop) and none of them let you buy the phone outright/on a no term contract. That is the only reason I ordered through the phone. My hopes are high for tomorrow. 🙂

I don't know who to believe.  The reps all say different things.  Some say it's in stock, some say not in stock,  some say the phones are not in the system,  some say the phones are in the system but there not sure if it's in stock.  I think the reps have a wheel of stock status that they spin for every inquiry just like the NHL has the wheel of justice.

After a whole weekend of "research" (aka physically going to stores and making dozens of phone calls), this is what I learned.

 

1. Rogers stores that are not corporate owned (i.e. BestBuy, Wireless Wave, AmCall, etc, and some Rogers Plus) have stock.  but because they are franchise owned, their managers tell them they are only allowed to do hardware upgrades or new activations becuase the store will make more money that way.

 

2. Only a handfull of units of Gray 16GB have been shipped to each of the Rogers stores, with the franchise stores having more stock than others.

 

3. UPS usually ships to stores somewhere around 12PM -1PM

 

4. online order is completely different than phone order.  the phone orders stock is separate from online stock

 

5.  There are new shipments coming monday

Got mine last Thursday at a Wireless Wave store at the Southgate mall in Edmonton. They only got a shipment of two 16gb Grey units and I now am a proud owner. This phone is a game changer. I installed a 32gb sd card, and I'm good to go. For those of you on the fence, buy this phone. It's everything you think it is and more.

Also, the rep i spoke with told me there was a much better chance of getting one at a retail store than buying it from Rogers over the phone. It turns out that was the case. Most of the stores I called also told me that they receive shipments around noon so keep calling them.

I finally got on late Friday at a Best Buy Mobile location in Oakville Place Mall in Oakville.  They had two and when I got there around 5 PM, the first one was being sold to someone else as I walked in the door.

 

Yes the metallic gray one actually looks good and even though I wanted to wait to get a white one, I don't have any regrets with the gray one.  Only thing I don't like is that compared to the glass on my previous iPhone4 , this feels cheap - especially the back cover.  Its so soft and flexible.

 

Other than that I absolutely LOVE IT!  Its everything I expected and even more.

 

All I need now is to get the Samsung dock, a wireless keyboard and mouse and I can use it as a desktop PC if the need arises.

 

Everyone who is still waiting for one, the wait is actually worth it.  A big smile will be on your face whenever you're using it. 🙂

Has anyone rooted the Note 2??

You should probably check XDA for that... not the Rogers board... since Rogers doesn't approve of its users making mods to their devices that will void the warranty.

Hi carpediem

 


With regards to Multi-Tasking Window, you will need to wait for a software update to be released. As I am an user of the International Version (N7100 & non-LTE), I was able to catch this feature thru XDA. Which is one of the benefits through those forums.

 

Keep in mind, when AT&T in US release there version in USA. I believe people are still waiting, if you want to root your phone and install custom ROM, then you can get the feature, I am sure one of the developers of XDA forum will port-forward the feature, since the AT&T version is the same as Canadian.
