So, for the 3rd time in a row I'm OP of the iPhone SE Pre-Order Status thread. I will be buying the iPhone SE 64GB Space Grey. Absolutely love the iPhone 5s space grey. I'm also buying the SE leather case.

Talk about whatever here, looks like price will be nearly the same after exchange, no word on carrier pricing.

Don't you already have an iPhone 6s? Are you replacing? Or just getting 2 phones?

I'm tempted to buy one just for fun... But do I need 2 phones lol?

I do but my dad is retiring his old 4s. So I will either give the SE to him or I will give him my 6s.

No you don't need 2 phones man, cmon lol. I will be pre ordering 64gb space grey tomorrow 5:50 am.
One will be for my dad. Not sure what one he will have but that will be decided when the phone arrives.
[doublepost=1458788528][/doublepost]According to Apple, the soonest that the phones will ship will be 31st. So if you want them on launch you'll have to camp out, otherwise they will arrive after the 31st.

No the actually delivery date is March 31 for preorders based on the Apple.com information and my order confirmation.

Might be because youre closer to China... Lol. Well I hope I didn't miss out for launch day, I ordered it at 4:15 a.m EST.
Also, I applied a $21.60 apple gift card for the purchase.

ordered via videotron and I got to keep my 3GB plan for 55$ :p
I'm happy
No way awesome ! I called them yesterday but they did not have info on plans for the unreleased phone. So I will be calling them soon as I get my phone. (currently $69.99 with rogers for 3GB)

as long as you have a 60$ bill, you're good to go without changing plan. When I went at a Videotron store they didn't tell me that, they said I had to switch plan and take the 2gb one (at 65$). The lady over the phone told me a different story. I'm happy to have kept my old 3GB plan (55$-5$multi-service+5$visual VM=55$). They apply the rebate at the end, so my 55$ plan + 5$ extra was enough to be eligible.

Mine says Processing Items and Delivers 31/3 - 4/4. Ordered it at 6AM, didn't wake up at 3 despite my alarms.
[doublepost=1458881887][/doublepost]The reason why we don't have a definitive date that just says 31/3 is because different parts of Canada have different delivery times, unlike the United States. If you live near or in a large/medium metro you'll get it on launch day. The territories and the rural areas will get it a few days later at the most.

looks like price will be nearly the same after exchange
The price looks a bit rough actually at $579 CAD from $399 USD. That's a 0.689 exchange rate. Even the newly released 9.7" iPad Pro is based on a 0.75 exchange rate which is much more accurate. I'd guess though that they're likely pricing the iPhone SE knowing that the majority will buy it subsidized anyway.

I won't be ordering one myself, but happy to see them keeping the bottom tier / smaller size updated with recent internals and getting a bit aggressive on the price.

Mine has now moved to preparing for shipment and I have a 03.31 - 04.04 date. :) I live in a city so I imagine I'll get mine on Thursday or by latest, Friday.

My phone is preparing for shipment. Track by reference yields no results so it seems like they haven't shipped yet, probably will be shipped from the Syncheron warehouse in Canada and that is when they will give us the tracking number. Right now they are probably being shipped in pallets and as a result we have no tracking number.
