just found out we'll probably be getting the I5 @ the contract price but our phone plan will be 50% off.

I'm hoping I am among the first to get it, although I'd have to wait a week before I can touch it.

What's the current time period with Rogers before you can do a HUP? Is it still 2 years into your contract or longer?

I went on the Rogers reservation system on the day it opened and I got number 164 or something. I checked back again and now I don't have a number any more and it says the shipping process has begun.. Whatever that means.
I also just got off the phone with customer service. I told them that my $300 early upgrade fee was a bit high and asked if there was somehing they could do for me. They transferred me to retentions and they gave me 50% off the upgrade fee.
Thanks for the advice sianspherica

Those new HTC Windows 8 phone were also underwhelming.

ANyone else find that the "beats" trademark anything for sound is a HUGE turnoff for a product? I sure do!

My phone just left the UPS depot in Concord and I've transferred service to my nano sim already. Wooo!

Hope you guys weren't too dependant on your Maps app in IOS 5 cause 6 seems to have really pissed off a lot of people:

BBC News - New Apple maps app under fire from users

Yeah, the maps kinda suck. I had been using iOS6 for a while and was frustrated when asking for directions to businesses. When the directions are locked in, the GPS is really good, however setting the locations is a pain. I spent 5 days in NYC recently and the lack of transit in the maps app was frustrating. I ended up relying on 3rd party applications but the original google maps transit was much better.

Apple doesn't take to criticism too well so I'm sure they've probably called an emergency meeting and are making it a priority to make them better, but until then, we gotta put up with it...

It's going to be a rough patch of adjustment as Apple gets the mapping improved. The new service is clearly inferior and there is no option but to improve it.

Like when Fandroids were waiting for Google to improve their handset OS, and instead they pinched off Honeycomb. Or Microsoft and Vista. Or for that matter, any Microsoft mobile OS pre-WP7.

Telus' systems are completely down today across Canada.
They've been down since 8am this morning and have not been able to
activate any iPhone 5s. I just went by the Telus store to get my phone and this is the latest.

And you sir, just gave me goosebumped skin. :)

My status says "IN PROGRESS", so I am most likely going to receive it with the second shipment. Pretty excited. :)
