Carrefour Laval Mall, 3AM EDT (via Sylvain):

Metrotown in Burnaby, the front of the line:

Oakridge Mall had people ‘inviting’ their friends into the line up, which people were clearly not happy about. Check out these before and after shots below. You’ll clearly see people had way too many friends budget into the line:

  • Lol

    Seriously….oakridge is already lining up, what time did ppl get there? O_O

  • Cellonly

    Man, these people need to get a life. Mine will arrive in the mail next week.

  • The line up was a lot of fun last year, my first time. That being said, it wasn’t easy waiting in line overnight without sleeping!

  • Loki

    Lol next week… Noob

  • If only I had a 4S that picture would have been so much clearer! 😉

  • Anonymous

    I’m astonished to see so many people lining up given how many phones were already sold via pre-order!

  • Wuju

    curious when will the mall security kick them out and when they allow to come back in the morning. Eaton Center for example

  • AccordXTC

    I’m HAPPY to say this will be the first year not lining up for the new iPhone, with the EUP from Robbers the next lining up I’ll be doing to to sign up with a different provider.

  • Peter

    All you people lining up the night before are IDIOTS.
    I’ve lined up for the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 and both times it was the morning they were released? I remember getting there at like 4/5 am. And LAUGHING at the morons that were there the night before because I got my stuff maybe 1 hour after they got theirs.

  • Ray

    Although I am still on iPhone 3….I have never lined up for ANY product and dnt think I ever would…..I can think of MANY other things I can do during that time (sleep) and get the phone a few hours or maybe days later……..Also I don’t think Roger/Bell/Telus stores are gonna have huge line ups that is where I got my iphone 3 and think will be trying for 4s tomorrow…since the online reservation system was a HUGE fail for rogers.

  • Shawnthomas

    I mow that west Edmonton mall is open to the public 24/7, but ou also aren’t allowed to stop anywhere for more than 5 min. I assume the line up would be a special circumstance though.

  • VJR

    Can any1 post a photo from Apple Square One if you’re lining up

  • Not lining up this year. Last year was fun, but don’t need to experience that again. I’ll just wait for me email from Rogers, telling me it’s ready to be picked up. 🙂

  • Anonymous

    Lmao. Lining up at Oakridge seems like it sucks. Last year they had to line up at the security doors so they were all stuck outside. At least it was summer though.

  • i agree with you! i did it last year……… don’t need to experience again .. .at all LOL probably if they have a new design 😛

  • Thanks 🙂 Next time

  • Carsonjstark

    Lol I’m gonna be sitting in my warm, cozy house until my iPhone is delivered to me personally. 

  • Bug No.1

  • Sha9gy

    The line up at Southgate Mall, Edmonton AB…. Is getting a bit longer by the hour.

  • Fahad

    SOME OF YOU GUYS ARE CRAZY

    If you guys were smart, you would have read the posts on iphoneincanada and read the BEST BUY PREORDER POST

    i preordered from Rogers and Cancelled that shit since they didn’t give a definite receive date for the phone even though I was 59th in line l O L

    anyways the reason i cancelled it is cuz i simply walked into my local bestbuy store, told then i wanted to preorder, they told me to be there before 10AM fri, and that was it, no B-S no Hassle, (ps. this was done on thurs the 13th at 7:00pm) FUCK ROGERS. 

  • Kraken

    Yup.  I’m getting mine tomorrow as well.  No line up.  People in the above pics must either not have a life and love waiting in line ups, or just plain dumb.

  • jsmile

    everyone cold?

  • jsmile

    when does it move inside into the mall. I’m willing to line up as long is its indoors. lol

  • Asakura58

    when I was @richmond center at 6 today there was a line forming maybe like 30 people?

  • Asakura58

     yea mines to by monday! 😀 good old preorders! Idk ppl cant wait a day or two!

  • shauna

  • Anonymous

    Yup I need a fricken chair !!!

  • Ex

    For those wondering, the line at Pacific Centre has turned the corner and is on Dunsmuir!

  • Ad

    About 300 ppls in upper canada mall toronto

  • jsmile

    Looks like a lot of stores have approx 200- 300 people. How long would it take Apple to process that many people?

  • Fahad

    Okay I did some number crunching that people may find useful.

    I figured out that it`s better for me to purchase an unlocked iPhone 4S instead of getting a hardware upgrade.

    This will only apply to people who got an iPhone 4 back in July 2010 with signing a new 3 year contract under Rogers and are looking to purchase a 32gig iPhone 4s tomorrow ($260 promotional pricing) as well as getting the lowest memory phone next year (it will MOST PROBABLY be a 32gig iPhone 5 @ $160 – no need for me to purchase the 2nd level iPhone 5 next year as the 1st level 32gig would be fine). 

    If the next iPhone comes out in July 2012: Option #1 – Pay the $320 early upgrade fee 2moro for i4s @ 260 and get the next 2012 i5 on an upgrade also: $655 for the i4s [260+320@1.13] + 40admin (35@1.13) + $655 iPhone 5[420+160@1.13] + 40admin  = ***$1390***Option #2 – Get a brand new unlocked phone from Apple 2moro for the $750 price n the i5 on upgrade:$848 for the i4s [750@1.13] + 316 iPhone 5[120+160 @ 1.13] + 40admin =  ***$1204***

    So you are essentially saving $200 by purchasing the unlocked instead of getting the stupid early hardware upgrade. 

  • Ramiro

    I’m with you.  Now that I’ve got the iOS 5 on my phone, waiting a few extra days for Siri,, bigger camera and better memory is no biggie.  I’ve had the phone a whole year without those three things… a few more days isn’t going really to matter!

  • Ex

    If you’re buying unlocked, very quickly. If through a carrier, not so much.

  • Pvcsugar

    Where is the end of the Pacific Centre line up? Is it longer than the iPad 2 lineup?

  • Wuju

    Just got by from Newmarket Upper Canada Mall and they sold out right in front of me. – the line is cut. 🙁 How frustrating since I was in line since 4:30am this morning. The problem is there are tons and tons of people infront that buy the phones for resale. Seriously, I see people all coming out with 2 phones per bag and I see a lady literally pay them some cash and take the phone off their hands.  There are lots of this happening. I was really upset when I saw this. Apple must know this, all they have to do is look not too far from the store and see this happening – those bad business folks are not even hiding the fact cause I see them in plain sight as I’m lining up!!

    Seriously, Apple should really restrict 1 phone per customer sale cause it’s ridiculous!

    I guess I would have to go at 3am next time to guarantee anything. 🙁

    Future Shop at Lansdowne – NO LINE-UP!!! Cancelled reservation with Fido online.  Carrying a beautiful iPhone 4s Black 16g. LOLLLLL!!!!!!!!!

    That was painless. Lined up at 7:30 ish and out the door with a brand new 64 gb 4S around 10. Love it.

  • guest

    my co-workers and i got our 4s this morning. 

  • Fahqjerk

     I was at Eaton Centre, lined up literally in the middle of the night. Got in this morning, bought two phones, sold them at the door of Eaton Centre at 50% markup, went back into the line with my girlfriend in tow, she bought two phones, and we just sold them. We just made almost $2000! Now I gotta get one for myself, though I’m gonna get a used 4.

    I went on my lunch to Pacific Center. Got there at 12:40 and left with an iPhone 4S at 1:02. Amazing. It was SO much smoother than last years 4 launch.
