Went the Apple Store in Calgary, was told nano sims will not be available until Friday. Rogers was for vague but did not seem to have them or wasn't giving them out.

I'd say you'll have to wait a week or two.

16 GB White/Silver - 273 on wait list at Rogers.com I tried ordering it at 3 AM, but the whole site crashed and I wasn't able to get it ordered until a few minutes after 6 AM. Hopefully it comes relatively quickly.

If we go to the apple store on Friday or anytime after that to get a nano sim, will we have to pay for one or do we get it for free?

I heard that they would give it to us for free? Not sure though.

I have a SIM for Fido (personal) and Telus (work) for my 4S...

Can I get new nano-Sims in advance? If so, can I switch my service over to the new nano-sims myself when my phone arrives? How?

Or do I need to take my phone to a carrier retailer and have them swap SIM cards?

What are the logistics/processes for switching sim cards?

Not sure why Telus (or Rogers, or Bell) wouldn't just ship a nano-SIM with the phone. Nothing else will work with it.

Actually, just checked my Telus order, and a nano-SIM was included automatically.

In case I missed an earlier post, has anyone in Canada found a place which has the nano sims available today? I've called multiple places in North Vancouver and been told:

1: "What? No, there not even in Canada. We'll have them on the 21st but only for contract phones."
2: "I don't know. Friday maby?"
3: "No."

Mine dropped by about 120 spots too. I think there are some cancellations occurring due to the 16GB limitation.

I went to talk to a Rogers representative in my local town in Southern MB. After telling him that I was 516th in line for a white 16gb model, he told me not to expect one on launch day.

I don't know if this is because I live in a rural area or because they won't have stock. So, take it for what its worth.

Some people's statuses have changed. I was in the 200s when I reserved w/Rogers and I'm now listed as "in progress."

Damn Telus doesn't let us check on the status. It's going to be a long few days until it ships.

Picked up my nanoSIM from the store today as well.

Also, I just checked my sister's reservation on Rogers.com and she's moved up about 850 spots! She's number 650 for a 16GB White now when it was 1500 just last night. That's awesome!

Anyone willing to help me out by picking up an extra nano sim and mailing it? I'm like 300km from the nearest Rogers's store and even they are clueless about the new sims.

I'd gladly cover the cost and shipping.

Thanks!
