First Canadian iPhone 5 Unboxing Hits the Web [VIDEO]


Looks like someone got their iPhone 5 earlier than the rest of us. YouTube user Blentron (from Toronto) sent us the following video, which he claims is the first real Canadian iPhone 5 unboxing. It’s recorded with the iPhone 4S and shows us how it will take two hands to unbox an iPhone 5.

Check it out below:

Have you received your UPS tracking number for your unlocked Apple iPhone 5 yet? I still think the iPhone 5 in black is a creation by Lucius Fox.

Update: Turns out this is an iPhone 5 locked to Rogers and it arrived this morning.

Update: Looks like the video and account has been deleted.


  • The hell. Mine still says preparing for shipment.

  • Why did it take you so long to get off the plastic! It’s like a girl unwrapping presents haha

  • mine too! and preordered at 3am friday.

  • Captin Majed

    Toke with him forever to remove the plastic cover!!!!

  • I don’t get it – why would someone already have theirs in Toronto while mine doesn’t even provide tracking info.
    For the video above – what specific model is this one?
    Last winter for the iPad 3, my tracking info only appeared the day before expected delivery, and even then it only showed that the shipment originated in Mount Hope (Hamilton – UPS depot). This leads me to believe that Apple spreads out bulk shipments across the continent, then break them down for further distribution a day or two before delivery date.

    EDIT – now that the post has been updated to indicate that this was a locked Rogers phone, it makes a bit more sense.

    Is this guy retarded?

  • AccordXTC

    Well if anyone sees this guys other videos, I can understand him having issues with a box lol.

  • If there isn’t an update in shipping by tmw then I’ll start to get upset .

  • DonatelloNinjaTurtle

    Why do you ask that bro?

  • Ex

    What the fu….is this guy completely stupid?

    Preordered from Rogers. Got tracking number yesterday. Ups shows will be delivered to my store choice by en of day today. Originated from ups in concord.
    Looks like it will be waiting for me till Friday πŸ™

  • Ex

    I think he is. Put the camera down and open it or learn to edit videos to remove the difficult opening. Dumb.

  • frank

    i ordered an iphone 5 with rogers

    ups tracking has stated that it has been delivered to my rogers location this morning (wednesday)

  • fco

    Mine arrived at the rogers store today at 11h. It will be waiting for me until Friday I suppose.

  • Ahahaha. It’s hilarious how long it takes him to open the box. πŸ˜› And then, SURPRISE! There’s an iPhone inside. I don’t get the appeal of unboxing videos. I did one for the original iPad, and then realized how dumb it was. πŸ˜›

    ordered mine from rogers last friday and was #353 on the list for a 32Gb white iphone 5. I got ups tracking yesterday and it was delivered to my rogers store this morning. They even called me and said I could drop by right now to get it. I was a little skeptical, but I work just around the corner, so I dropped by during lunch break and MY iphone 5 was indeed right there. I even held the box in my hands πŸ™‚ BUT.. the poor girl obviously didnt know rogers policy very well. Sh really tried to enter my number in the system and process my upgrade … she even called Rogers to ask how to do it, but she was then told that she absolutly couldn’t do it before friday. So she was very sorry and had to ask me to come back on friday. She replaced my iphone 5 box with the label with my name on it under the counter and thats it. But now at least I know for sure that I will be able to get it on friday πŸ™‚ And it is definitly possible for someone in canada to unbox one as of today.

    Hey, there’s an iPhone 5 in there after all that! Who knew?

  • RaphaelNinjaTurtle

    It took him forever to open the box

  • He told me via email he was just excited. lol

  • In the words of Nelson Muntz:

  • Mine too, I haven’t got info on either my orders (Apple and Rogers)

  • impiss

    fcuk it! I ordered 12:05am Friday and mines still preparing for shipment…fcuk apple!

  • sam

    what are you guys current a # out of? im on a business plan so i ordered it through biz solutions and im 17/1000 but i called in to ask when it would ship and all they said was they dont know and its one big reservation system. seems like a small amount if only 1000 people ordered rogers 32GB black ones…

  • Shawn

    How does he get his LOCKED iphone 5 delievered to his house??

  • Kirk

    Wow lol.. I never knew they glued the boxes together with super glue! What was wrong with him lol…Jesus, my order is still at preparing for shipment and I ordered unlocked right at 3:13 am…. So impatient…lol I hate waiting…and the UPS trick didn’t work for me. Anyways, glad dude got his phone. πŸ™‚

  • draz

    Well the Rogers store already has my phone so I bet this guy works at a store or knows someone who gave it to him

  • k1llua

    This video is proof that iPhone is for those with slightly impaired cognitive abilities… welcome to the future, people can’t even open boxes without they iPhone app..(currently loving the best iPhone ever made…my s3)

  • Jeremy

    Ok it’s looking like its better to pre-order locked iPhone 5’s thought the reservation system because my wife’s white 16gb has been confirmed to arrive at the the location on Friday and my iPhone unlocked pre-order which was purchased at 12:03am still says Preparing For Shipment. This is ridiculous.

  • Don’t be so mean.

  • Nick

    Found out I’m getting mine on the 28th even though it said the 21st. Note to self: wait in line next time. πŸ™

  • Ex

    I guess he learned. Deleted the video and account!

  • Hilton Routley

    Loved how he said he had to use pliers to open it hahaha
