Reserved 32GB Black 5 weeks ago today, was 2600th in line at that time.

 

Status changed to "IN PROGRESS" 1 week ago

 

Just received an email advising that my phone has been shipped and "Your shipment should arrive within four days".

 

Reservation status in MY ACCOUNT is "SHIPPED" however the UPS tracking link doesn't work yet (I understand from previous posts that the UPS waybills are pre-printed and not scanned into UPS' system right away).

Do you get another 50$ if you are still in-progress?

I tracked my position since the first day. Sometimes it barely moved, other times it jumped more than 400 positions. I was excited when I got to zero but now I'm stuck "IN PROGRESS" with no idea when the phone will ship. 

 

By the way, I did get 2 X $50 = $100 to be credited to my account after 28 days. I really don't feel like waiting another two weeks.

Considering they haven't even edited their website for the additional shipment notices they sent out (when they got a shipment in to switch users to in-progress), I think they will switch us over to shipping when they update the website. As of now, it still says 15 000 shipment notices sent out. Let's hope they try to update it this week.

Mine just hit "In Progress" for a 32GB black ordered Oct 4.

What's the cut off for the $50 credits? Clock stops when it hits "shipped", "shipping" or "in progress"?

Does anyone know the time period between being In Progress & Shipped? I have a feeling that the change would only happen when Fido gets another shipment next weekend, but would it be possible to go from In Progress To Shipped during the week (Monday - Friday)?

My status has been in progress for 7 days.I ordered the same phone as yourself and on the same day.

I'm curious to see who gets it first.I was # 1428 before it changed to "in progress" with no number in line.

Very frustrating!!!

I am at 147, dropped from 1286 over the weekend with 905 on Friday, 526 on Saturday and 147 today for 32GB Black iPhone. But surprisingly my status is still OPEN. Any guesses on when it would ship?

My position was stuck on 2200+ for almost two weeks. Since Friday, it dropped to 1200, then 600 then now it's In Progress. Just in time for 100 dollar credit. I wonder if now I will stay for 2 weeks with "In Progress". I'm not that optimistic after having to wait a whole month for the whole process. Way wayyyy too long.

I had been hovering around position 360 for the last 2 weeks and yesterday I finally dropped down to 49 and today it says in progress. Today was my 28 day mark, does this mean I won't get my $100 credit? It doesn't say it has shipped yet, it's just "in progress"

i just spoke with an online fido representative and they said that I can still receive my second $50 credit because my iPhone hasn't shipped, it is only "in progress." Only once it says it's "shipped" are you know longer able to receive the $50 credit.

I'm curious about this too, cuz this is day 30 for me and I went in progress...for the first $50 credit I got the notification on the Monday even though day 14 was the Saturday.

I dropped from 644 to 488 today.

I hope I'll be in progess within the next days...

I am supposed to get my first $50 credit tomorrow.

Fido's message all along is that if your phone doesn't SHIP within 14days then the credit is applied, same for the 28 day credit. In progress doesn't necessarily mean shipped.

According to Fido's definition of "in progress" shippment is in progress or has initiated:

" If your status is “in progress”, we have begun the shipment process and you will not be able to edit or cancel your reservation any longer. The next email you will get will be the one that confirms shipment to the store you chose."

I have a strange feeling that we will not be entitled to the $ 50 credit  if we are have the "in progress" status and close to the 14 day mark !

YoLoKID, I would imagine it would be soon, but I do not know. Mine went from 125 on Fri to IN PROGRESS on Sat. Before that I was 505.

Awesome! Just went In Progress now. Not sure exactly when, but I was still 489 in line earlier this morning. I hope it ships very soon! Smiley

I think a number of us went IN PROGRESS this morning because I checked around 8:30am and the reservation system was down. I checked again about an hour or so ago and I had gone from 125 last night(down from 506) to IN PROGRESS.

Hopefully it ships soon, but not before next pay day, lol.
