Just so you guys have an idea of how many people got their turn to get the iphone 5.... I was 407 in line today for the 16gb black and now im in "in progress".. Got my 100 bucks credit last friday so its finally good timing to get the phone!

Anybody knows how long it takes to get "shipped" from "in progress"?

I never received my weekly update on my iphone 5 position in line (Which I should have received on friday), so I have no idea what number I am in line and what my status is. I tried calling them to see if they could tell me but they said they have no idea...

Log into your fido account and click the yellow button that says phone reservation. It'll take a few seco des to load but your position in line will be right there.

Sitting at 1374 for 32gb...been 2 weeks already started at 1816 dropped down to 1400 quickly and since has moved one spot a day. Who else reserved the 32gb and where are you sitting. 


I've had a similar experience. I ordered 2 weeks ago today, started around 1800, quickly dropped to 1450ish after the first week, and am now sitting at at 1426 for the 32 GB black. It seems I drop a couple spots a day, probably people bailing on the reservation. 


I found pretty much the same thing. I ordered on Oct 4, also the 32GB in black. I started at 2645 and by Oct 6 I was down to 1685, a drop of almost 1000 in 2 days. I was doubting I would get my $50 credit if they were filling earlier orders that quickly. It slowed a little right after that but was still falling at a pretty good clip. By Oct 15 I was down to 1193, so almost 500 in 9 days. Since then it has been a snail pace. Some days it doesn't drop at all and on other it might drop by 1 or 2. I am down to 1177 now, so only 16 spots down in 8 days. 

 

I agree that the current pace is likely due to people canceling orders and if not for those that we would still be where we were a week ago. Seems like Fido is no longer filling orders, at least for this model. Guess I still have 9 days to go, so it seems like I will get the other $50 credit, but at the current rate of ~2/day, I will be waiting until sometime in early 2014.

Fido can simply honor the credits promised for customers that purchase in store or at an Apple kiosk. Charging customers ($40) to avoid hassle and lineups and not delivering is a huge fail on Fido's part.

The $40 is refunded back to you. Fido is not really making revenue off of the reservation fee. Especially with the reduced iPhone production at Foxconn, Fido is really losing money from the credits they're giving out.

I think it's time I switch carriers, to be honest. If I switch now I'd get the phone in a week, unlike fido's **bleep** system of treating their customers as if they have no other options.

Didn't move at all this weekend. Still 1314 for a 16 GB iPhone 5 White.

They should also have a free upgrade to the next model up... For example, if you ordered a 16 GB White iPhone 5, they should give you the 32 GB White iPhone 5 with no extra charge for waiting. Telus did something similar to this.

If they honored the credits if you found in store that would be great.  It still does not make sense to have a reservation system and not fill those orders first.

 

And if we are speaking facts just look on the main Fido webpage and your # in the queue.

371 - > 271 iphone 5 64GB. Did they get a shipment on Sunday or something. Might be people leaving the line. Anyway for those in montreal, Point-Claire Apple Store has a lot of 16 GB in stock.

Seems to be so, my position in line went from 191 to 82.  Feels nice to be close; I say it'll probably ship by late next week.
