    You honestly think a Rogers rep would know something like this? Employees in Apple's own retail stores are clueless about upcoming products and there's a lot of proof at these forums that they generally just spout utter nonsense or stuff that is nothing more then rumour - Apple simply doesn't tell anyone about it's upcoming products.

    Actually its been in the rogers system for some time now. When rogers reps pull up the ordering system its listed. They just can't order it. So only reps who bother to search for it know about it.

    Yes it is rumor but I wouldn't doubt its true.

    Check below of the screenies, from Rogers. I dont know where your from but at Rogers they dont know the exact date they will get phones. Rogers just sends them a shipment of phones and they open it and its a surprise to them.
    Look at the memo and the transactions screenies.

    Ok I'm not going to say it's not coming, but I'm going to agree with the other posters.

    Rogers reps know ****. I used to be one... we weren't told anything.

    That being said, it could just be an error on someone's part (referring to the screenshots above).

    but anyways, can anyone tell me if they think it's too late to get an iphone at this stage?

    Apple publicly stated after their last product releases that there were going to be no more this year (they said that completed their holiday lineup). So I'd say stop waiting, start buying.

    yep, spend 100 bucks more for double the ram, double the space, faster cpu/gpu, and better camera (with video). or the refurb 3gs for 50 bucks more.

    but then why does it say this on http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/
    Product :iPhone
    Recommendation: Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle
    Last Release: June 08, 2009
    Days Since Update: 170 (Avg = 178)

    and seeing as people think its comming out in december 8 or 12th it should be comming out in 13-17 days

    Oh, come on. Even if it were true that an 8gb 3gs is coming out, which I highly doubt, why would a bunch of random people at an online forum know when it would come out? Even if somebody did know, and posted a date, how would we confirm the info? There's no way to know. Accept it, that's life.

    Roger's won't get that iPhone until after Christmas.
    Bell is getting it first.

    Buyers guide is automated calculation.

    Apple already said no new products this year.
