    apple stores in toronto are still selling out everyday. you'll need to line up for it right in the morning.

    wireless wave, best buy, etc get shipments every now and then. so their shipments are random.

    Don't waste your time checking and calling wireless stores everyday. They get shipments randomly and you would basically have to be there at that exact time to be able to get a unit, which is a waste of time and would require a lot of luck.

    Best way to get it is to line up at the Yorkdale or Eatons Apple Store at 5AM. (line ups are always right in front of the Apple Store doors, not mall doors). It's only 4 hours waiting which isn't too bad.

    People are still lining up for the iP4? Wow, I though that they had managed to get enough stock by now. I guess being able to pick one up at the end of July by randomly asking a guy at a BestBuy in Lafayette, Indiana was a lucky fluke.

    Hahah, what? How is lining up at 5am and waiting 4 hours not too bad? That's downright atrocious. I find the whole idea of waking up early and waiting hours and hours in line, just so I can give my money to a store, to be offensive as a consumer.

    That being said, I still want an iP4. Are these lines ever going to let up?

    Of course they will, but who knows when? Many people from around the world come to Canada, buy unlocked iPhone 4's and resell them elsewhere. Until that becomes unprofitable for them, you'll have to line up or hope to get lucky.


    Just for reference, I have 3 co-workers in Toronto who have been trying to get iPhones since launch day but refuse to line up for them. All 3 are still looking.

    Line up, or make other plans, such as buying them at inflated prices from those who line up and resell them elsewhere.

    If you get it from best buy, it will be locked to Rogers, Bell or Telus (or Virgin or Fido). Only way to get it unlocked is from the Apple store.
