    Are you a dealer? I ask because you said arrive at your store...
    lol no. When you pre-order with Rogers you get to pick a store it ships to when you're ready to go get it. The tracking number they sent me is giving me an error... "UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Please verify your information and try again later" What gives?

    typical buck passing. Ironically, just received an email from Bell saying that th s3 will be released tomorrow and to come to their store to get one...I'm with Telus.

    I'm with Telus and my wife went to get her upgrade today (she's getting an S2 since the Nexus is being retired with Telus) and the store confirmed they have them in stock locked away so I called Telus for a few things I wanted to check on and the lady told me for pre-orders the phone will be shipped on the release date so it could still be 3-5 days before I receive my handset.

    Why in the world would anyone pre-order if it guarantees you will get your phone last.

    I am also moving from Blackberry and this will be my first Android device so I hope the transition will be smooth, however I a prett geeky person so I assume it should be pretty easy.

    I was told basically the same thing. The did tell me that I could go get one from a store and they would credit me back my preorder money.

    Really defeats the purpose of pre-ordering if you can't get it first right when it comes out. Regardless, I'm going by the store tomorrow and if I can get one then without paying some ridiculous penalty, I will.

    ups showed my phone Enroute and then delivered, I called the store and they claimed they didn't receive it and it was sent to a warehouse first. I guess that is possible although I have a suspicious feeling that the employee wanted the first initial batch for himself and his friends, anyone else?

    Weird I would receive an email saying the phone was Enroute to the store, then to see tracking confirmation as delivered with a 14 item delivery. And then the employee to claim it isn't there?

    I called into Bell and spoke with them set up a new plan and all. I then called into a store in my area and they were taking deposits to hold a device for people. I went in Sunday and paid 50$ on the pebble blue. Walked in today and picked it up at 10am. I have been playing with it all day.

    Before this I had a BB9700 since Feb 2010. I have been following these sites the whole time and I am glad I got this phone.

    Mine is showing "2012-06-27 05:07 PM Shipment In Transit via MONCTON, NB depot" from Telus. I will only get it tomorrow but my wife is home all day so it should be waiting for me when I get home from work tomorrow night. I was really hoping for it tonight but I had a few things to do which means I will be able to play with my new toy all night!

    Who are you with? My Telus store ran out. Should be in today. I'm also hoping for the $50 rebate as a result.

    I'm also with Telus.. And I pre-ordered late (June 20th)

    I was surprised when it was shipped to my door on day 1, thought for sure there would've been a shortage or delay.

    Quick question for you guys... Virgin is advertising this thing as LTE (as I'm sure all your carriers are as well), I'm in the coverage area but I'm only seeing H+ as the network... I'm just wondering if this is the only icon or if I'm actually not getting LTE
