haha this just keeps getting better and better.
so i received the "congrats your phone is getting shipped to the store you chose" email from Rogers this morning saying it was shipped to my store in Toronto.
The UPS info says it was shipped and delivered to a store in Quebec. I called the store and they said it arrived but had someone else's name on it, so its not mine it's theirs! WOW thats incredible..
So i guess I lost my phone reservation!!
Same here, although mine ended up in oakville, Ontario, while I asked for it in coquitlam, BC.
I got on the "live assistant" thing from above and they confirmed that it happened and "sent an email" to fix it...Now I have no way to track its progress or if this email did anything anyway..I will not be using their "reservation" service again and am seriously considering moving carriers. To "drop the ball", first you have to carry it...
I called about 10 stores in the durham region this morning with little luck. There were a couple third party dealers such one as one at Pickering towncenter that had 32gb black(not sure how many). There was also one in Whitby that had 1 64gb white. I was able to track down 1 16gb white at Oshawa center at wireless wave which I picked up this morning. I think its better to go with the third party delaers like wireless wave and others as they are not apart of the reservation system. i just cancelled my reservation I was 1310 , I would have been been waiting a while and the apple reservations site always crashes. Good Luck everyone !
i'm pretty sure it is dependent on your specific corporate plan... mine does not allow me to do any upgrades in stores (i have gone to rogers plus stores, wireless wave stores, etc. and all of them get a message on my account that says i must call my plan administrator, and it prohibits them from making any sort of changes)...
Phone is at my local store for pick up so I can go in, and pick it up on Monday
10 business days from the time I lost my wait list number (in progress) to shipped. Orginally reservered the 32G Black first day of launch,
This was for Ontario
What I would suggest if you are not in a hurry just wait and order later, Apple now has to put a fix on the new ones they are sending out as iOS5 has a flaw that is lowering battery life,
Plus if you are not a mac user seriously get get the Samsun Galaxy it is way cooler.
or u can do what i read here in a post about going to future shop etc to get one .i called a couple stores a couple said the had none then some said yes but only 64 in black .then finally richmond hill had 16 gig white last one ,so i drove an hour and it was still there.big thank u to kim workin there.so ive been trying previously with rogers reservation sys,apple reserv sys- on the phone with both companys & even tried to order online from store with two week delivery but was told they cant send me locked phone to rogers or anything to do with plans .they only sold unlocked .long story try future shop etc.
