Seeing as how stoked I am for the phone, I decided to make this thread to see who ordered what and the position they are in line.
I'm #47 for iPhone 6S Silver 64 GB. Think there's a chance I'll get it day 1? I don't really mind waiting a few days.
How about you? What number are you?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@Holla865023 I got mine from the Square One Mall location; in Mississauga.
LoL'ed at the Apple Staff; they were literally handing out apples to customers LMAO.
@danielr wanted to add that when I told the rep that I called Fido and they said I could use my Fido dollars through an Apple reservation... AND showed him your post in this forum that another user was able to apply dollars towards an unlocked phone purchase... the reply I got? "Anyone can post on this forum right? How sure are you that it is fact or fiction?". I was like, you don't have to be rude about it.

@Holla865023 the Mod in this thread (http://forums.fido.ca/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Smartphones/thread-id/24501) seems to think that we can use our fido dollars... getting really confused between different answers between Fido employees
@danielr, you got really lucky then. I tried again today at Fairview and was met with the same answer. That I cannot use my Fido Dollars towards an unlocked iPhone purchase. Only way is if I'm recontracting or upgrading to a locked Fido phone. And when I told them I don't mind getting a locked phone since I'm on Fido anyway, they said, oh you need to reserve the phone via Fido instead and get it at a Fido store. SO FRUSTRATING!
Perhaps I'll try at Square One tomorrow but given my luck, I think I'll face the same issue.
I just picked up a 6s plus at the apple store today. They were able to apply my fido dollars as well as the negotiated fido contract at the apple store.
@Holla865023 I was also able to use my Fido Dollars at the Apple store without any obligation to change my old plan from many years ago. Got the phone unlockcked; and the bill was applied to my Fido account. You must have had an Apple employee who is a noob and doesn't know how to do their job properly.
