I was #233 for the Note Black and am now IN PROGRESS as well!!!
By the way, any experiences out there concerning whether IN PROGRESS means that a device is actually available in the first shipment and typically how long it takes to ship?
When I reserved two iPhone 5C's for my kids, strangely enough, when I received the shipping email and tracked it, the devices went from Concord to Kingston. I live in Bracebridge!! I got a call the next day from the local Wireless Express store in Bracebridge. Why the side trip to Kingston? This time I chose a Wireless Express store in Orillia (should probably have picked the official Rogers store in downtown Orillia but...).
My status went from "OPEN" to "IN PROGRESS" but the number indicating my place in line has disappeared? Is that normal?
