Okay So I got the backorder email this morning as well...apparently sent at 430 am!
Still no email about shipping but then again I ordered the White one!
So, I am guessing that only grey ones are being shipped and white are on back order. Called and the customer care dept said that they might receive more on Thursday! So I will keep myself calm at least till Friday!
After that...I dont know what I am gonna do! Craziest launch ever...
Funny thing is ...the longer its taking the more its driving me towards this phone!! Lolz!
Congratsssss to all who got it already!!
The US had thier launch a few weeks ago and some carriers are only releasing it next week.. does that mean we get ours in Dec? Whats the point of a launch if you dont have the product? maybe I should cancel my order and get the iphone 5 and ipad mini instead.. at least its out when they say its out..
had a moment of the crazies there.. ill just carry a pack of stickies and a pen until my order comes in.. hopefully before the end of the mayan calander...

I have been going to the Roger's stores around my house and work locations for the phone and missed the only times they had received a shipment. Seems they got half a shipment on Friday and both locations were sold in an hour.
Today I inquired more and the one location told me that "half" equal 3 measly units.
I also went into the WirelessWave store and so far they had 1 unit. They think they will have more stock in three days.
Must say I am very frustrated by the lack of proper communication.
I managed to get a copy pretty easily through a Rogers store, and I suggest you all pursue this method instead of preordering through Rogers online. Call the Rogers stores in your area, and ask when they'll be receiving more shipments (they receive very small shipments atm). Also ask the salesperson you're speaking with if they can notify you as soon as they get an order in.
This is what I did, and within an hour of receiving the call, I was the owner of a Note 2 Titanium Gray. Needless to say, I was very happy and grateful towards the salesperson who helped me out.
I am having the exact same problem with google voice search. It's not a big issue for me right now. But I have literally tried every combination of settings that I could think of to turn it on. Google searched a number of options as well. No luck. If somebody could come up with the solution to this, it would be really helpful.
I picked up a Titanium Note 2 at Rogers last Friday but I also ordered a white one online. Still no information about shipping yet. Unfortunately.
