It's been 4 hours and they still haven't unpacked the box..

 

EDIT: called store, the rep who signed the UPS package didn't even know he received an iphone.. he told me he didn't receive any iphone..

 

i can't even pick it up, lame service.

My UPS notification shows it was delivered, but apparently it isn't delivered to the store directly, but to the Fido warehouse (in my case) in Richmond Hill, not the actual store in Toronto.  The guy at the store said they will get it tomorrow from the Fido depot.

 

Checked the UPS tracking number and this is indeed true, the shipment was sent to Richmond Hill, not the store.

I called UPS, he said they delivered to *store address*. And it's written it's signed by XXX the rep working at the store.

Urgh. Unclear stuffs.

 

Anyone else got anything?

The store called me to let me know both phones were there. Actually, they called to let me know one was there and I asked about the second, which she confirmed was also there.

Got my hopes up, just went to check my status and it is the same as before (OPEN). 😛

Dear XXX,

Congratulations! You have reserved a Apple iPhone 5s 64GB Space Grey through the Fido Reservation System. Your new phone will be shipped to the following Fido store:

 

 

 

Should arrive within 4 days.

Reserved at 3:46am PST, so just after reservations opened.

16 GB 5S Silver, position #11 (then went to 10)

16 GB 5S Gray, position #25 (then went to 22)

 

Status went to IN PROGRESS on Saturday and got the emails/texts last night that they are shipped. Checked the UPS tracking slips and doesn't appear they've actually been shipped yet, I assume they go out today.

 

Hopefully they arrive by Friday as I don't think UPS ships on Saturdays. I've waited too long to upgrade my iphone 4!

Wow... now I regret getting 32gb. Should have also went for 64gb. Called FIDO, they say they have no shipments to send out yet.

I cancelled my order for the 32GB gold and called them up. They are sending my a 32GB Grey. They only have 16GB and 64GB in stock for the gold. I wanted 32GB.. so grey was my next option

Oh man, should've ordered 64GB for gold. 😕

It's too late for me to go back now as I am still the next in line to get the 32GB gold online, won't cancel unless I can find a 32GB or 64GB in stores.

everyone, i didnt come here to pick fights, or have to 'prove it'. Google for yourself

 

My question was simply  "why only iphone".

 

Today i logged back in to see what new phone was added to the list.

 

thats my answer, another iphone ( assuming they will add more from time to time that arent just macintosh)

 

i'm done

if you have something smart to say to me, i wont be reading it. this forums over

You sound like a kid. iPhones are highly sought after, especially at launch. Companies wouldn't invest money in creating systems for reservations if they weren't necessary. The demand at launch for the phones you listed simply isn't there, therefore no system is required. You'll probably be able to walk into stores and buy them on release day without issue.
