    Default [FIDO, Canada] Completely SOLD out until WHEN?

    Trying desperately to put my hands on one of those but all 3Gs are gone.

    Keep calling Fido and all Kiosks and nothing. Anyone has a clue when next the shipment might occur???

    Also, called Fido and the rep told me if I place the order with him, it will be shipped August 1st.... Give me a break. Two week wait is too much I think. I would hope to buy one in kiosk sooner. Is that possible?

    A replacement already? Is this because you lost, dropped, damaged it or is there a tip or idea you could share?

    I think that it will be a while before Canadians see an iPhone again.

    My thoughts are that Apple will have Rogers at the very bottom of its list to re-supply (sine that whole mess rogers created pre launch).

    If i was making a decision at Apple I would re-supply Europe along with Asia before I even think of Canada. iPhone sold out in other countries as well. 70 Countries to take care of and Canada's Rogers was the absolute worst PR for apple in I don't know how many years but many many years.

    I hope my thoughts are wrong simply because as we all know Rogers has this limited promotion on rates for data and if we don't see iphones 3G before end of august its going to suck for many. Come to think of it that could be something that Rogers will do..hold off on resupplies until end of promotion this way they blew off that really bad PR period and still force people into bad plans. Who knows..

    GOOD NEWS! Called Fido Vaughan store this morning (Wed.) and they got more stock, so the reps on the phone AGAIN know shit.... Picked up mine as of noon today. They only got like 7 or 8 in, but that's enough for those impatient types calling everywhere around like me. I assume all stores got this small restocking. Better than the phone rep who also told me Aug 1st....

    GPS is awesome!!! Driving with it even better! And 3G is almost or just like WiFi a lot of times. What an awesome phone, glad I sold my 1.0 just a few days ago for over $400 LOL
