    Pretty much dead on. I did a pre order and got a December 5-12 delivery date. A modest daily effort landed me a reservation and phone yesterday. Once I was satisfied it had no issues I cancelled the pre order. A pre order is like insurance in a way. The part that got me was I went to the effort of reserving a phone. When I went to Yorkdale to pick it up they also had a walk-in line. No reservations with a thirty minute waite. The same time it took to pickup a reserved phone... The other Apple location I attended did not allow walk-in purchases. Must have been a large shipment that date.

    The X is better than expected in every way. Moved up from a 7.

    I could’ve easily gotten one by reserve and pickup by now. I probably have 2 dozen email notifications from istocknow over the last few days with 256gb stock in the vancouver area every day. If mine hadn’t already shipped and been charged I would’ve just gone to the store. Now I’m forced to wait for the 14th.

    Going to be the longest long weekend ever..

    are people still waiting on X's? I've already been able to get my hands on two. One from Apple and one from Rogers.

    Yup. I'm 8 hours drive from the nearest Apple store, and I'm not interested in renewing my cell plan at a much higher rate, an extra $34 a month, for 2 years. Hopefully my wait ends Tuesday.

    Preorder is good if your not in a rush. (Which of course most who preorder want them ASAP) Looks like reserving in store wins this time around. Picked up at Fairview in Toronto nov 9 and cancelled my preorder which was in December.

    At Fairview yesterday there was a walk-in line, but the reserve in store folks walked right past it.

    Launch day dates from pre-order is still better than reserve and pickup, because reserve and pickup will always be the day after launch as the earliest possible chance. Unfortunately next year will be even more competitive.

    I have a 256GB Silver and a 64GB Space Grey on reservation at Pacific Centre / Vancouver. Going to cancel those, if someone is interested in taking one, direct message me. We can set an exact time to the minute where I'll cancel, then they'll hopefully show up for you to get.

    Heh. I must need sleep. Your handle made me think of the particle man song and now it's stuck in my head.

    Well, who knows what's accurate at the moment — or if I'll receive anything at all today.

    No updates from UPS49 or UPS99 tonight so I guess we sit the weekend in Incheon. Must be a boatload of phones sitting there waiting to ship out. Assume I’m not getting it till mid week at earliest now.

    Edit: Noticed UPS67 is now scheduled at 9:48 EST Saturday, Nov 11 from Incheon to Anchorage. There’s hope :)

    I had to return my 256gb silver to Masonville in London today and buy another one since the camera was defective. So I guess I took one of the phones allocated for tomorrow :)

    Side note: The Masonville apple store is the worst I've ever been to. My front facing camera would show a weird blemish when there is bright light. The genius was able to recreate it by using a flash light. But wouldn't replace my phone. Said it's fine and I shouldn't be taking pictures with bright lights any ways. I had to fight them to get them to replace my phone, since it's too much to ask to have a $1700 phone to work flawlessly.
    Also not the first time I've had issues with this store. They damaged my iMac before and wouldn't fix it. Had to get apple HQ involved.

    Both of the reservations I managed to nab were at the store in Masonville (yep, love driving to London for no other reason) ;)

    Both times I was there I was correcting the "Genius" staff about things that they were telling their customers. Apple really should be doing a lot more training before letting these guys onto the floor. Selling products by misinforming the customers only builds distrust and quite possibly loses a customer for life.

    I thought about that too... it will be my next step if investigation takes way too long (more than 5 business days)
    friend from the bank advised that they expect the merchant to take reasonable steps to resolve the issue before they do the stop payment
    and since apple is investigating, i can’t / shouldn’t do a charge back yet

    late today ups status changed... to officially lost
    “We're attempting to verify the package location. / Lost package investigation”

    Same here. Let’s hope for a depart and arrival scan after she lands in Anchorage. If not UPS99 leaves at 5:05PM EST. Painful :(

    I guess so. My original date was the 13th and there's no way it will be here then. We'll see; I'm guessing mid/late week unless things really start moving soon :)
