Only 16GB model of iPhone 5 up for reservation?

So I'm trying to reserve an iPhone5, but the dropdown menu only had the 16GB models. Did the 64GB (and 32GB) versions sell out?

 

And I thought the reservation system wasn't opening until 6AM -- I assumed it was Eastern time, but I seem to be able to acccess the system at 5:50AM EST (I'm in Vancouver).

 

Can anybody shed some light on this?

Soon! The reservation system may be down briefly while it is updated to include the two other models!

As an addition, if you have already reserved their 16 gb, you may have the possibility to change your selection without affecting your position in the queue. We will give you more updates as they come in.

Re: Only 16GB model of iPhone 5 up for reservation?

so one question.  Should i wait for the online reservation system to include the other models first? or should i go ahead to reserve the 16gb and switch to the other models later?

So how is that going to work??? Isnt the Queue specific for each model of phone? 

 

Should I be reserving a 16gb now so whenever your system is updated I can switch to the 64gb? This system seems really flawed... is anyone thinking over at fido???

Oops, somebody majorly botched that up!  I went to the site once I heard you could reserve, saw only the 16GB model (less than my old 3GS 32GB!), and almost panicked!  Glad I Googled and found this thread.  And gald to hear the 32GB and 64GB are infact available (soon) too.  I keep checking the reservation system to reserve the i5 64GB. 

 

Just talked to support chat too, and they say I can keep my existing plan with per second billing, and 6GB data.  Awesome!

And if that is the case... how is that fair? I was up at 3am PST to reserve my iphone 5 64gb. But there was none. So why should those who reserved a 16gb be able to switch to a 64gb and be ahead of me in the queue? That's isnt right.

I will let you all know as soon as I receive news. Don't cancel your reservation yet.
