  • I called the apple store in montreal this morning, and they still had stock, but only 16gb white. You can buy from apple on contract with fido and cancel your reservation online. Thankfully, my 32gb black just changed to shipped tonight.

I was #278 for an iPhone 5 64gb Black sunday... And now, I'm #270... Like seriously, I'm pretty sure I won't get it this week if it continues like that.. It's so slow, I can't believe this..

does anybody know if you lose your place in line if you decide to switch models? I'm currently 5900th in line, but I think I want a 32gb model now. I will have to cancel my current reservation and get the 32gb, but will that put me at the back of the line again?

Yes, I did the same... I reserved a 16G, cancelled and then reserved a 64G... I went back of the line again...  Fortunately I did this early in the game and was at 407th when I re-reserved.

Re: Whats your position in line for iPhone 5 ?

Reserved mine the first day Sept 14th ... my # was in the 800 and now 593  

First .. very slow 

Second i opened the reservation 10 days ago and still status is Open 

Third , i keep getting "technical difficulties" error when trying to check the status on Fido site

 

I have a friend that went to a kiosk in the mall yesterday and got one with Fido , no lines no waiting (black too )

So what is the point of reserving if it's that slow !

If these "position in line" numbers are nation wide, how come they only go down by 20 numbers a day !

 

Is Fido only getting 20-30 devices for customers who reserved ? Orrrrr

Most devices are given to customers at the store ?!

I reserved 32 GB black. I was 1200-something when I reserved around the 15th. Dropped to ~130 by Friday morning, ticked down to 120 through that day, dropped suddenly to ~35 by Sat night, and is now 29.

 

I'm guessing that Fido gets big shipments of phones at a time, and the big drops are when they get shipments. On Thur/Fri that was the first set of pre-orders, on Sat night that was another smaller shipment. The individual ticks down (from 30 to 29, etc) are most likely other people who were ahead of you in line, but cancelled their reservation.

 

Assuming this is true, expect the drops in your position in line to be sporadic.
