Apple.ca iPhone 4 Orders Have Started Shipping

While waiting in line overnight for the iPhone 4 on launch day, Apple.ca quietly updated their website to allow the option to order unlocked iPhone models for Canadians. The only downside? Orders would start shipping in three (long) weeks!

Apple iPhone 4 Orders Have Started Shipping in Canada

Just like the Apple iPhone 4 Case Program, Bumpers have already shipped and have arrived earlier than expected. This has also applied to the iPhone 4. Given the extreme shortage at the moment, it looks like ordering online for an unlocked unit is probably your best bet for securing yourself an iPhone 4.

Here’s a screenshot of an order that has shipped (thanks Lee!):

Has your iPhone 4 shipped yet? Or are you still battling the lines to get an iPhone 4 from the “Big 3”?

  • Chrome262

  • Ships Sept 17th…worth the wait!

  • coffinlid

    i ordered my BEFORE the person who took the screenshot in the post but mine is only “prepared for shipment”.

  • ElectroBot

    Mine still says “Prepared for Shipment”. (I noticed the change and missing funds hehe around 5PM so it must have happened sometime before that.)

    I ordered my iPhone 4 32GB at 03:36AM PDT on July 30th and chose the Expedited shipping option. Hopefully it’ll arrive before the weekend.

  • yvrgal

    I couldn’t wait any longer so I just ordered a 32GB 3GS in White. I’ll just wait for iPhone 5.

  • Omar1795

    i hope mine gets soon also i pre ordered one on the launch day plz the person who wrote the article tell me when did you pre order yours. 😀

  • Anonymous

    Hmm.. My order was placed 2:47AM PDT and still just “prepared for shipment”

    Wonder why they aren’t shipping them in sale order…

  • Anonymous

    Ahh.. Mine was for 2 32 gb units, maybe 16’s became available first.

  • Colem

    Pre ordered at 2:50am PDT July 30th. “Prepared for Shipment”

  • Lee

    I ordered it at 8:30am eastern time. Last night it went into the Preparing for Shipment status and then an hour or so later it changed to shipped and gave me the FedEx tracking info. I didn’t pay for expedited. Odd thing too is on my MasterCare they did the temp authorization when I bought it, but that dropped off ages ago and there’s no new charges on my card either so who knows.

  • Omar1795

    hey im getting confused yesterday i checked my order status it said ships 20 august arrives 26 august and today it written prepared for shippment and this article says that someone got the iphone 4 today and he ordered it on the same day i did and he lives in the same satate i do so can someone help i mean can apple wirte arrives august 26 and it arrives today or tomorrow if somebody can help plz reply!

  • Edge

    Mine still says “Prepared for Shipment”- 16 GB, expedited shipping, ordered the first day.

  • Matt

    Thank you. I just did! 😉

  • lukejw

    Same here, I ordered at 3:04 PDT (before the person in the article), and mine still says Prepared for Shipment. I think it’s because we ordered the 32GB. Hopefully they start shipping tonight.

  • Igzabier

    …because they can only make a few hundred 4’s a week?..or am I getting jerked by a marketing strategy that provides limited #’s to up the hype?

    Either way, I don’t work for Apple they work for me, so there are more important things/issues/human crises than twitchy tech & its addiction

  • Matt

    Actually, he is just lucky with 4 days to be honest (it states that it will take 3 weeks to ship) and in the screenshot case it’s been shipped after 17 days. (He ordered in June 30th and the process was made in Aug 17th) i don’t understand the fuss about this… So, whoever ordered at that time will be receiving no later than Aug 21st. However, this was really a good post in a sense that it gives us hope “it is POSSIBLE to receive before the expected date” 🙂
    Anyway, thanks for the share and good luck everyone! 😉

  • Lee

    Does anyone know what we’re supposed to do about the micro sim? I’m with Telus, when I bought the iPhone online it never asked who I’m with. I have the 3GS so just the big sim. I assume I just have to go to Telus and ask them for a smaller sim? Does anyone know if they deactivate your old sim and activate this one? Reason I want to know that is because the concierge in my condo would call me when FedEx arrives, but if my current sim doesn’t work then I won’t have a phone! I’d just prefer to have the sim ready vs getting the phone and having to go to Telus before I can use it. Or I guess I could attempt to cut my sim first…

  • ElectroBot

    I went to a local Fido store and purchased a hybrid SIM/Micro-SIM card (its got breakaway parts so you can use it as a SIM card and then break away a bit more and it becomes a MicroSIM) for $10 + tax. I figured that’d be quicker than trying to get a MicroSIM from Apple.ca on the unlocked iPhone 4 I’m getting.

  • L537p

    Fuk you waeles fuk you dowffins fuk you appew and roguers god dam mongorians!!!

  • L537p

    Full price for 2 32gb models, won’t you feel silly when this fake shortage stops. Stopping sometime after Apple has suckered enough people into buying outright I imagine.

  • ronni

    Ordered a 32gb on july, 30 and it says “prepared for shipment”. it would be awesome if i get it by the end of the week. i choose expedited shipping.

  • Noel Iphone

    Ordered both iPhone 4 16G and 32G at the same time, single checkout. Got an email saying 16G is being shipped. No word on the 32G thou.

  • ronni

    Do you know if rogers have the hybrid sims also?

  • Bitter

    This is absurd. I just came back from a day of waiting in line at the Apple Store at Yorkdale Mall, Ontario, from early EARLY. There was a lineup of over 50 some people. At one point the Apple Store manager came out and told us all that there was enough iPhone’s for everyone today. On a pee break, I ran into the UPS guy who told me, quite candidly, “Apple gets shipments every DAY — I just dropped off about 100 of them”. THEN, a few minutes later, Apple employees were out telling everyone to go home and that there was no shipment today!!!! WTF??? FOUL!!! FOUL!!!! I’m done. I am DONE. I’ve tried everything and I’m just done. WHY THE HELL ARE ROGERS AND FIDO CUSTOMERS GETTING SCREWED while I can buy a Telus and Bell iPhone 4 TWENTY TIME OVER?!?! I cannot afford to buy an unlocked iPhone 4, nor can I buy out of my Rogers contract. Is Apple trying to battle their Antennagate press by creating a shortage? They’re LOSING customers. I’ve never seen the like.

  • ElectroBot

    They should as Fido is owned by Rogers. Other carriers should have them as well. If they don’t, then you could grab a MicroSIM and use it with a MicroSIM-to-SIM adapter (you can get them on ebay [from Canada] and other places for under $10 with free shipping).

  • Jason G.

    I was worried about the same thing before I ordered online. I called up my local Apple store and asked what am I going to do when I get my phone as it doesn’t come with a micro sim (and apparently you get one free if you purchased in person at the Apple store). The rep told me just to bring the phone to the store and they would give me the sim free of charge.

  • xxJDxx

    You don’t live in a state. And what do you expect anyone here to do?? You think we know when apple is going to ship your phone??

  • xxJDxx

    Unrelated but for those that have them, are you experiencing the antenna issue? I was playing around with one in the store the other day and was able to stop it dead when loading a webpage with my pinky finger…..

    I know a lot of people say it isnt an issue with ‘normal use’ but couldnt you accidently touch the spot when using it ‘normally’ ?
    I really wanted this iphone, but honestly, seeing the antenna issue is still and issue and rumors of a new CDMA iphone with insulated antenna probably by xmas makes me think it might be a good idea to wait 6 months…..

    Considering they still sell for over $1000 on ebay, no I don’t feel silly buying them for $800 to turn a quick profit. I got my 32 gig unlocked for free.

  • Tiffany

    I’m more worried about breaking the iphone than the antenna issue. Everywhere I look, there are people saying that the glass can be easily shattered. I’m generally not a careless person, but hey, it’s not so hard to drop a phone sometime…

    I can grip it in such a way to make the signal drop a bar or 2, but have yet to run into any issues with just using it.

    No dropped calls, etc.

  • Anonymous

    Yes, the ones I got from Rogers were hybrid.

  • xxJDxx

    It often doesnt affect calls all that much, have you tried it while using data over 3G though? its when using safari that I noticed problems….

  • Jayke

    Just got the notification at 12 that my 32 GB iphone 4 has been shipped! Hopefully all of you who are waiting have been as well. I’m pumped :D. Should be here by the 20th 🙂

  • ronni

    same goes for me…received e-mail about shipment, i should get it by the 20th.

  • ElectroBot

    Just got the email that my iPhone 4 32GB has shipped from Shenzhen, CN at 6:55AM (their local time) and should be here (through 2-3 day Expedited shipping) before 6PM on Friday.

    Okay so I ordered my iPhone 4 from the Apple website. I live in Nova Scotia and I’m pretty sure that there aren’t any apple stores here. I currently have a HTC Touch Diamond on a 3 year contract with Bell. If I get the iPhone 4 can I just change the contract over to my iPhone 4? Thanks!

  • mco19

    I ordered an iPhone 4 32GB through Fido customer relations department on Monday and it shipped a couple hours after I got off the phone. Should be getting it on Friday 🙂

  • Joe

    Sorry for the off topic but question…

    I did an HUP(Fido) almost two weeks ago, and lately I’ve been thinking would apple let me exchange the 16GB to 32GB by paying the difference. If not..can I do a refund then buy the 32 again and still get the upgrade price?

  • Joe

    oh yea reason is they’re replacing my phone because something about the built in modem resets 7 times in two weeks is not a healthy numbers…so I might as well just exchange the 16 to 32

  • Lukejw

    Same here. I live in Kelowna and it’s supposed to be here before the weekend!

  • L537p

    You mean you plan on selling them on eBay? Good luck getting a 1000$ for them. Also what’s rong with a hup if you can do it every year anyways. I apprciate the answer though atleast now I know people would actualy do that. More for those who are trying to find one through Rogers I suppose.

  • Ben Senise

    you just need to put in a micro-sim. either you get one from bell for $10 i think or you cut your existing one down. your contract will not change.

  • Ben Senise

    you just need to put in a micro-sim. either you get one from bell for $10 i think or you cut your existing one down. your contract will not change.

  • Ben Senise

    you can also just cut down your sim to the right size.

  • L537p

    Also what do you mean less for resale once ip4s comes out. Why not take your extra 500 bucks and invest it in some apple stock.

  • Aluminium123

    My 32g shipped 18th. Ordered on July 30th. When I checked FedEx tracking, says I should have it on Friday. And, then I guess off to Apple store to get a microsim since the Apple site didn’t give me that option.

  • Misteedawn61

    I was under the impression that it came with a microsim?

  • Misteedawn61

    I ordered a 32g on the 30th. Fedex Tracking says it was shipped on the 17th (my time zone) from China of all places. Suppposed to be here by 6:00pm Friday. Woo hoo!

  • TargetSu

    @Bitter…

    Nice story. Only problem is, how would the UPS guy know how many iPhones are in a box? Do you really think they are shipped individuality? Please.

    Why can you get a Telus or Bell phone? Common sense would tell you that Rogers and Fido have more subscribers on iPhones as they were the first carrier in Canada to have the iPhone, Bell and Telus were a little late to the party.

    I lined up twice at the Apple store in Square 1, Mississauga, to only find out they ran out. No biggie, I got one last Friday at a Rogers store in my local mall.

    It’s just a phone, and you will eventually get one.

    And, BTW, they are not losing customers. Every see how busy an Apple store is. Other stores in the malls, could only wish they had the foot traffic at an Apple store, and people lining up for their products.

    case in point. How many lines do you think you’ll see for the new BlackBerry Torch?

    Have a great day and remember, it’s just a phone… (albeit, a kick-ass one)

  • Anonymous

    I agree with TargetSu that you need to chill, but at the same time I know a rogers dealer that is refusing to sell his iPhone4s to anyone unless it’s on a 3-year contract. He always keeps a few out back for people who sign a new contract because he says he gets kickback for their whole 3 years, not just the $20 he gets for selling the phone.

    So yeah, they’re probably screwing you…c’est la vie

  • Ship date

  • Peter

    Where do you live? I live in NS and chose expedited shipping, but my estimated delivery is Aug 23 by 6:00 PM. Lame!

  • Aluminium123

    I live in Toronto. Chose regular shipping. Says estimated delivery is Aug 20 Noon.

  • Aluminium123

    I thought so, too but, they never asked which carrier I wanted to go with.

  • Peter

    Huh? I paid extra for expedited and I’m going to receive it *after* someone who opted for the regular shipping? What’s up with that?

  • Peter

    So did I get ripped off by paying extra for expedited shipping? Some people on here seem to be saying they’re supposed to get their orders before the weekend with just the regular (free) shipping. My estimated delivery via Fedex is Aug 23. May have something to do with the fact that I live in NS, but I find it hard to believe that someone in Ontario that opted for free shipping will get it several days *before* me when I paid for expedited.

  • Anonymous

    No, but I’m aware of its g spot and haven’t had any problems yet. 🙂

    Do an advanced search for factory unlocked iphone 4’s that have completed. They do not sell for less than ~$1050 with most going for just over 1100.

    With Rogers, you can’t do it every year. They wanted $500 for the 32 gig for me.

    Yay, mine shipped overnight too. Estimated delivery on Friday.

  • Luis Jimenez Araya

    what about if I want to use the iPod function or safari on the iPhone 4 cause I do not have the micro SIM yet! What do I need to activate the phone? Do I still need the microsim to activate it or just by plugging it to the computer will be enough?

    My 32g ordered on the 31st still hasn’t had any updates done to it, hasn’t been shipped nor does it say ready for shipment, hopefully it will ship before the weekend!

  • Wayne

    I’m on vacation in Kelowna and picked up my iPhone 4 on Sunday. I’ve been experience the antenna problem ever since. Once it completely dropped to “searching” but most times it drops from 3 or 4 bars to 1 or 2. I’m not sure if it’s the reason I’ve had several dropped calls. I’m trying to hold it differently but when using apps (as opposed to talking) I keep holding it against my palm until I realize the bars have dropped to one (I’ve only seen it drop to none once).

    Hopefully it won’t be as bad in Vancouver. I really don’t want to add a bumper or case.

  • Lee

    Apple is expediting all shipments from what they told me, regardless of if you paid for expedite or not. Glad I didn’t, mine is being delivered tomorrow yay.

  • roadcarver

    I’m still waiting it out with my trusty old 3G. I downgraded my 3G back to 3.1.3 since there was slow down when launching apps with iOS 4.

    I don’t have the time to wait in line due to young kiddos, and I can’t justify right now spending over $700 for a phone.

  • Personx

    I order a lot from the Apple Store. It normally takes 24 hours after a shipment notification, it’ll tell you longer, just in case, but you can probably expect it by tomorrow. 🙂

  • Jason

    I ordered my iPhone 4 – 32 gb on Aug 3rd. I’m told it will ship Aug 24th and arrive Aug 31st.

  • Alnk1015

    Does anyone know if the phone will have 4.0.2? I along with a lot of people who ordered online are screwed then.

    Awesome. I was under the impression that we couldn’t do that, but I’ll give it a shot. Thanks for the heads up.

    Only if you want to jailbreak it. 🙂 Even then, it’s not like they won’t come up with a way of doing it for 4.0.2 and then 4.1 when it comes out.

  • Chrome262

    well if you are having a problem you should be able to bring it back and get it replaced. I am sure they will bump you up to 32 gig if you pay the differeence, but you would have to wait i am sure.

  • nathan

    Yes, they’re freshly made iPhones, they’ll come with the latest firmware.

  • nathan

    You should call to get a refund for the faster shipping

  • L537p

    Well if they wanted 5 hundred and you have got a decent career why not right. I would be doing the same right now, that rediculous upgrade price is a game changer. But you gota admit there are better ways to turn a profic than to buy a phone for 800 bucks and to sell it for 200 minus shipping and list price. I understand your fustration, given I didn’t have a generous cooporate plan I would stop wasting my time to and just buy the phonez. And futhetmore if I knew I was screwing Rogers I would buy 5 phones from apple instead of one. But I don’t know who’s screwing me soooo the wait goes on.

  • punkd09

    Mine shipped from SHENZHEN CN lastnight at 9pm and says its already in MISSISSAUGA, ON at 9am this morning… final destination Saskatoon. Seems incredibly fast to me… Im crossing my fingers that it arrives by friday. Ive never had anything shipped to me before so what is the chance of it getting here by friday? i paid for expedited and its with fed ex.

  • wei

    Could you let us know when you placed your order?

  • Wei

    Well they are made in China, like everything else these days. The fact that Apple has its supply-chain organized so well that the phones are shipped to you direct from the factory should impress you, not puzzle you.

  • Xzar

    Check corrently… if it says “Paperwork available for non-FedEx broker”, then it only means that the paperwork is ready. It states Mississauga because that’s where they were made available. Your package is not yet (as of 9am) on our continent. Coming soon though!

  • Peter

    So indeed it was a ripoff. It’s kind of crap that they advertised & charged for faster shipping when infact they gave everyone expedited shipping. I mean obviously $14 for expedited is not going to break the bank when the phone is $800 but I’m just annoyed. I’ll try getting a refund.

  • iPhone4crazy

    I did a speedtest and it showed 3157kbps – DOWNLOAD 2973kbps – UPLOAD
    With the deathgrip I got:
    2893kbps – DOWNLOAD 58kbps – UPLOAD

    That’s a huge difference! Pinky test was at around 660kpbs upload, so it only seems upload is dramatically affected. If people request I will do more tests including ping time and case on/off. Do you guys want a Mythbusters style antenna test?

  • Mine was shipped yesterday! Estimated delivery on Tuesday, August 24th but I’ll bet I have it sooner. Really happy here!

  • rufi

    you can cancel before shipment.

    I would say it takes 3 weeks for shipment + 5-6 days for delivery. You could always order it then cancel it in two weeks (or before) if it hasn’t shipped, but you need a plan B if it does ship right after you leave. You may have better chances if you buy it at a local apple store.

  • sherry

    thx for the reply rufi but after how many day after confirmed me the shipping and delivery date?

  • El

    There is no difference between a 16gb and 32gb in terms of wait time on the online apple store. Right after you purchase the phone you will be given an estimated ship and delivery date.

  • shery

    and wot about the confirmed time?

  • rufi

    I do not think they “confirm” the date, they just tell you the estimate which is basically order date + 3 weeks. They will email you when they ship it though, but it can be after 3 weeks or a bit before that (some people reported shipping after 2 weeks + 3-6 days to arrive).

  • zack

    So I finally found a store that had iphones for Fido. (Fido at limeridge mall, Hamilton). I get there, and they have one left. They said they promised it to a guy on the waiting list. They said they’ll give him a call and see if he can come if not they’ll give it to me. They call he doesn’t answer. They told me to come back in half an hour, I was flexible and said ok. I come back and they said, they’re going to give him until tonight, so essentially I should try back tomorrow. I said give me a minute and I’ll think about it. I quickly called Fido tech support, and they were furious. They said their is no way they can refuse to sell me the phone. So I go back and tell the lady and she refuses to talk to Fido on the phone. Anyways, long story short, 2.5 hours later I get the phone. She gives me a survey on my experience at the store (LOL). But I still said i would strongly recommend this store!

    Mine got there at 11:16pm according to the ‘Local Scan Time’ option so I’m guessing we were on the same plane. I actually have twins on the plane and one of them will go off to Spain once it arrives in Canada and the other will come to me in the Philippines.

    EX, I have a question:

    If the online order says PREPARED FOR SHIPMENT today, when can I expect it to arrive?

  • Nando83p

    And, do shipments arrive on weekends?

  • Lee

    Like 2 days later.

  • Nando83p

    and do shipments arrive on weekends?

  • Maly70

    Hi;
    i ordered iphone4 on july31, i got comfirmation that it will be shipped on Aug 23 and estimated delivery day on Aug 30.
    I received an email from Apple says that my order has been shipped on Aug 19, i checked the web site to track delivery but Apple site was down for update.
    Today i check it up and the Phone is now in Mississauga “Paperwork available for non-FedEx broker” what that means!
    i like to share with you iphone4 status and hope all who ordered like me get their orders shipped
    Thank you.

  • Asm

    when did u order it? what day?

  • Misteedawn61

    Conratulations! I’m so jealous, but mine should be here tomorrow.

  • Lee

    I ordered it on the 30th at 8:25am when it came out. 16gb black downtown Toronto. My fedex page said delivery august 19th before 12:00pm they delivered at 11:57pm lol.

  • Mrmozart

    My shipment is totally fuc*ed up… It departed MEMPHIS, TN twice with 4 hours diff in timing…..

    what about you guys????

  • ip4FTW

    So once we get our iphones in the mail. can we go straight to the apple store and get a free micro sim? or do we have to pay for it at our current carrier?

  • Lee

    So I literally have mine in my hands 1 day short of 3 weeks from date of order which is great. From my experience, whatever day FedEx says it will be delivered is when it will be regardless of what their tracking status is. The Mississauga thing is just paperwork, it will go to Alaska next then Memphis and then Mississauga or wherever you are. Was neat last night, it said it left Memphis at 4:24 and so I found a flight tracking website that lets you track FedEx jets and it showed FedEx from Memphis left for Toronto at 4:25 so like a huge nerd I tracked the flight until it was here 😛

  • Shery

    shipping date 10 th sep del date 16 september is there any hope to get them before 13?

  • ounkd09

    Unless it has departed China (as of lastnight) i would highly doubt you get it before tomorrow. Most likely mon or tues

  • TBeats

    Meh, I guess I can wait a little longer then. I’m shocked at how under stocked many of the places in Halifax (and apparently other cites) are right now. A woman I work with has been trying to get one since I ordered my unlocked iPhone4 online and it’s looking like she will get it when I do. That’s pretty sad.

  • nts

    We should have an Apple Store in Halifax :/

  • Junk3124

    Damn same thing for me, I want my phone!

  • TBeats

    I agree completely. I’m not sure if there are other independant retailers and maintainace service providers, but if you ever need something fixed, I’d check out the independant mac place on Barrington St. I feel like not many people know about it so google it if you ever need to.

    Also, no I do not work for them, just thought i’d let my fellow Haligonians know ; )

  • Slow But Effective

    Hey people, keep these status updates coming! Please try to include not just the date you ordered, but the time as well, which specific model it was, and whether you ordered the unlocked version (or perhaps unlocked is all that’s available?).

  • IphoneVirgin

    i order 2 16gb (one for me and one for my boyfriend) on aug.1st. it was scheduled to be shipped on aug.23 and received by the 27th because i paid extra for the express post. i checked this morning and it was already shipped today (thursday, the 19th) from shenzen china, to hong kong to missisauga, to anchorage and should arrive by 1030am this monday the 23rd. i’m so excited!

    i tried to line up at pacific centre last week to see if i could get it but that is really hopeless. the jerks that are selling them for an arm & a leg on craigslist keep lining up at 5 or 6am (when the mall opens at 10am) and buying up all the stock so no one else can get em. no joke! when i lined up some people in line already had one or two phones in hand! oh well. will have my phone sooon! =)

  • IphoneVirgin

    yours went from mississauga to anchorage to memphis?! where is it’s final destination?

  • IphoneVirgin

    50 people in line? that’s nothing! try over 300 every morning! the apple stores in vancouver have been getting shipments almost mon-fri but the problem is that people are mostly buying the max amount they can at a time and so if they had 50phones when you were there and they said there were enough phones, then those 1st 25th probably bought 2! and they really aren’t losing out because people are buying the phones for full price just so they can get the phone but i do agree that it’s unfair and it does suck for people wanting to do the hardware upgrade.

  • IphoneVirgin

    and like it or not, its supply and demand. they haven’t been producing them as quickly as they can (white ones aren’t even out yet because of issues) so obviously it makes sense for any business to make as much as they can. we can shake our fists at them all we want but if roles were reversed, you’d want to sell something at full price versus a small portion of it to gain a profit. hang in there =)

  • IphoneVirgin

    i ordered aug 1. express post. it said it would ship on the 23rd n be delivered by the 27th. but it was shipped today the 19th and i should have by 1030am on monday the 23rd!

  • IphoneVirgin

    if there is an apple store near you, you can just take our receipt in and get the microsim for your carrier for free!

  • IphoneVirgin

    if you go to the carrier you have to pay, but if you take your receipt to apple apparently its free.

  • Jefinately

    Anybody know when shipments come into Apple stores and/or how many per shipment?

  • Claude

    Mine is exactly the same as yours and I am also worried. Looks like its still in transit from memphis,TN

  • Mine arrived today! Yahooooo.

    I was going to pay extra to buy it from Kijiji RIP-OFFs!

  • Asd

    Apple likely does!

  • Telserv_ca

    Agree that Fedex tracking is really messed up. My shipment shows in Toronto as of last night, but didn’t make it onto a truck this morning. It’s due before noon today. We’ll see.

  • Telserv_ca

    Did you receive the Iphone4 marketing questionaire before you got the IPhone4? What kind of marketing genius sends out a questioaire about his product, before he’s even managed to deliver it??!

    This is my first Apple purchase. Their performance so far looks like they are deliberately trying to make Microsoft look good. No more Windoze jokes from me, ever.

  • Srankin

    Hi folks. For those in the Toronto area, just purchased my iphone this morning at the Sherway Gardens store. They have phones.. big line-up, but they have them, and they opened early, 8 am.

  • Drizzx

    Serious? So your blaming Apple for shipping a product a week earlier than expected, that doesn’t arrive instantly because it has to be air-shipped by a company that is not Apple owned or controlled. This is somehow Apples fault and doesn’t live unto your expectations? Perhaps you need to sit back and take in some perspective.

  • Drizzx

    Use the Yahoo Fedex tracker as it provides more information. I suspect you’ll see it’s now actually in Mississauga cleared for delivery. Which basically means it’s through customs, and can now carry on to it’s final destination. With any luck it will make a mid day plane and be in a truck for afternoon delivery.

  • Asd

    Cant wait for this guy to buy a Windoze smartphone. Comedy gold will ensure.

    @Jeff: thanks for the update. Is this the Speck PixelSkin HD case? i ordered that one on July 30th and it still says “Not Yet Shipped” on the order status. Where are you located?

  • Misteedawn61

    I’m expecting my iPhone 4 to arrive at my home today. Current FedEx tracking information says it’s on the truck for delivery. I was wondering, of the people that have received theirs, is there a microsim card with the phone? Or do I have to go purchase one?

  • I just got off the phone with Fedex, and if the guy is to be believed, and your phone is still sitting in a status of:

    2010-08-20 06:30:00 Released for delivery MISSISSAUGA, ON

    Then unless you’re in the Mississauga area you will not receive it until Monday.

  • Misteedawn61

    It was delivered to my house about 10 minutes ago. Woo hoo! Now I just have to get off work.

  • Bob

    And did it have a sim?

  • Misteedawn61

    I don’t know. I’m still at work. 🙁

  • Bob

    Oops, sorry, read your other post wrong, thought you were off to work after getting the phone. I will try to learn to read properly.

  • Telserv_ca

    I’ve had customers fire me for non-performance for missed deadlines. Apple needs to smarten up.

  • Misteedawn61

    I’m home unpacking my iPhone but I can’t get the simcard tray open. Although I was told by FutureShop that I will have to purchase a simcard

  • Misteedawn61

    got it open and there is no simcard

  • iphone4ready

    How could it be non-performance on Apple’s part? The store clearly showed ships in 3 weeks when you ordered it. So they have an automated system that sends out a questionnaire x number of days after your order is placed – not a great system, should be after shipment, but how is this non-performance?

  • Misteedawn61

    Just went to the Rogers store to pick up a microsim card. It only cost $11.00

  • appdog

    I got the same response from Fed Ex. I took the day off today to accept delivery.

  • centric87

    That sucks!!

  • Bob

    I heard Apple stores have them for free, for each carrier, will check over the weekend and confirm.

  • Guest

    I guess it looks like it won’t be delivered today then. Also, I noticed that on the fedex tracking page they’ve removed the estimated shipping date.

  • Nate Cohen23

    I tried to get a 32GB Iphone 4 at every Telus retailer around me, and could not find anything. Seems stock was very very limited, wait lists are huge, and phones are coming in drips and drabs (if any at all). Finally ordered online through Apple on the 15th of August. Late, I know 🙁
    Anyone else order this day? And any chance of early shipping? The apple site shows Estimated Ship Date of Sept 7.
    I cant wait to get rid of my Blackberry!!!

  • Asdf

    I’m in the Toronto area, and they report having my package in Mississauga last niight at 5 PM. Apparently, It didn’t jump on a truck this morning. Apple has to be responsible for their choice of couriers, when I’m paying for expedited delivery.

    Why the heck would it go from Anchorage to Memphis when I live in Vancouver, directly below Alaska!? It better come Monday morning like it says! ahh!

  • IphoneVirgin

    Wow that Yahoo Fedex Tracker that Drizzx recommended works way better than FedEx’s own site! My phones literally got into the Mississauga Ramp 30mins ago! Looks like my Iphone cherry will get popped Monday morning afterall! 😉

    p.s. Thanks Gary & Ex for all the updates on this site!

  • ronni

    i checked my visa statement, if you picked the expedited shipping…apple didn’t charge for it.

  • ronni

    fedex sucks…i was waiting around at home today because the estimated delivery date was today and now I checked the tracking and that date is gone.

  • centric87

    ya exact same situation with me……well if I don’t get it by Monday, then I’ll really be pissed lol

  • Neal

    Received mine today and got a micro-SIM adaptor from Pacific Mall and they cut my Rogers SIM card to fit using the familiar SIM cutter – all for $5 or $8, depending on the type of adaptor. I got the $8 one because it doesn’t need a sticker to hold the card.

    But… the firmware is already 4.0.2!!! Is there anything I can do to jailbreak this? I want to run MyWi.

  • Ex

    Why cut it when Apple Stores are giving micro-sim cards for free?!

  • BHT

    Well I don’t know about Neal, but I live in Nova Scotia and their isn’t an Apple Store here. So unless they are sending them with the iPhone 4 then I will have to cut it too.

  • BHT

    It might get shipped like 2-4 days early. I know mine did and I ordered on Aug. 3rd

  • BHT

    I don’t see how a questionnaire is a big deal. Do people actually do those things?

  • BHT

    Gotta make money somehow I guess. 😉

  • BHT

    Completely agree man. I think they would get a lot of business here in Hali. Oh well they will probably bring one here someday.

  • BHT

    Is their any other way to get a free micro-SIM? I live in Halifax and they don’t have an Apple store here.

    Mine was delivered around 11h30 this morning…. yahoo

  • nathan

    They won’t deliver it, but it may continue to move towards its destination.

  • zenj

    I ordered mine on 30th July and i got email yesterday that it has been shipped from Shenzhen, China yesterday and it will be delivered on 27th. Interesting 2 phones coming on different shipment as I have 2 different tracking numbers.

  • R Spencer

    My iPhone 4 shipped today !! Ordered online on Aug. 5th. It shipped 5 days ahead of the original schedule….I guess Apple has better inventory.

  • jackiesoul

    I ordered mine on the July 30th right after arriving home with my new phone. It said 4-6 week delivery but I have just received a shipped e-mail that says it should be here on the 23rd. This kind of makes up for having to order one in the first place, I thought they should have been given away at time of purchase.

  • Misteedawn61

    There is no Apple store in my city

  • maybe for you… but for me, It’s not true…
    I just checked my credit card statement… and I was charged the full amount (iphone4 + expedited shipping).

  • Omar1795

    plz if any one receives his ordered phone tell me what software comes on it 4.0.1 or 4.0.2 thnxxx!

  • Misteedawn61

    I assume it was 4.0.1 because as soon as I plugged it into the computer it did an update.

  • Tigger59

    The fact of the matter is that UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO STAND OUTSIDE AN APPLE STORE all night, your chances of getting an iPhone 4 are zero to none.

    Telus is taking $50 deposits and both Telus and Bell (same company) are advertising on tv and in print. WHAT FOR? If I were a Telus or Bell customer, I’d sue for false advertising because they are “selling” an product that is NOT AVAILABLE.

    Yes, I’m pissed. Because a product that SHOULD have been readily available, is ONLY available to people who have time to stand in line for hours on end.

    Who has bought the iPhone 4 in Toronto because I haven’t seen ANYONE using one??? I’d like to hear from someone who actually bought one for PERSONAL use.

  • Tigger59

    Locked or unlocked?

  • Guest

    Simple answer is to order it online through the apple store (and wait ~3weeks) unless you want one subsidized by a carrier. Also, I’m not sure how taking a $50 is false advertising, the way I see it is that it is no different than how places take preorders for games.

    Anyways, best of luck in your iphone search.

  • Guest

    so lucky! i ordered mine on the 5th… the status is still “not yet shipped” is your phone 16gb or 32 gb?

  • Asd

    Wow, what made you such an entitled little brat? It is a phone, relax…..

  • Asd

    Uhh why would it be locked?? Have you even bothered to read the apple.ca page?

  • R Spencer

    I should have noted that unit that shipped early for me is a 16GB.

  • Owais

    Update: I called Apple Customer service yesterday to find out of there was an update since people have started getting their cases. It was around 2-3pm at the time and the CSR said its still scheduled to ship on Sept 27th!! He didnt know about ppl getting the cases either.

    Afew hours later I checked online again and the status had changed to: “Prepared for Shipment”. So i guess i will get it in mail in a couple of days now. FYI the new update still shows the shipoment date to be Sept 27th.

    I will be back with another update once i get an official email that it has been shipped.

    Thanks and goodluck!

  • Owais

    @ Neal: if you call apple and complain then i think they will either mail you a microSIM from the carrier of your choice or they will reimburse you for purchasing it. I know apple is not a cheap company so $10 for the microSIM wont break their backs.

    Let us know if this works out though.

    Goodluck!

  • yesJb

    Ordered 28/7/10, arrived 20/8/10
    4.0.2 already installed…bummer.
    Went to a local Rogers store and told him I needed a new microsim.
    He gave me one free, a very nice fellow, indeed 🙂 and was about to upgrade from my regular sim on my 3GS. Couldn’t wait.
    This evening did it all on line. No problems. Works fine but can’t jailbreak.
    Tried to downgrade to 4.0.1 but didn’t work.
    Oh well…

  • Omar1795

    if anybody receives his phone plz tell me on what software does it come with 4.0.1 or 4.0.2 thnxxx!

  • Shery

    ello omer i am shaheryar i just wana know i ordered my iphone4 18th of august they said they shippd on 9th and delvrd on 16 i have to leave canada on 13th is there any chance that i can have my both cells before 13 or on 13 realy appreciate u if u share ur experience

  • invincibleparm

    Not false advertising, but not right either. Considering that Telus support has told me five times that they are not allowed to (‘by Apple'” according to them, to take waiting lists, pre-orders, or money down. It is supposed to be first come, first serve. When I phoned Apple support after giving in and ordering my phone (Ordered, Aug 19, arrival date: Spet 9th) they also said that all phones were supposed to be on a first come, first serve basis. Now 50$ deposit? For a chance to get a phone when? According to the telus stores in my area, there haven’t been any in house since the launch….at least on Vancouver island

  • Guest

    For people that are tracking their package, what’s their current status. (BTW I paid the $13 extra for 2-3day shipping)

  • iphoneinregina

    oh yeah, I didn’t opt for the expedited shipping, just regular.

  • Tombo

    I have a question – I bought my iphone4 from apple.ca and received it on Friday. I activated it in itunes using my Rogers SIM card (cut it down to microsim size). Can anyone confirm that by doing it this way that the phone is still unlocked?

    Thanks!

  • iphoneinregina

    I can’t confirm as I haven’t done this yet, but I can’t imagine that using an old Rogers SIM card would lock your phone. Of course, while you are using the Rogers SIM card, you can only use the Rogers network. If you wanted to switch carriers, you would have to switch SIM cards.

  • Tombo

    As long as that’s the case, I’m happy with that; I just want to keep the flexibility to switch to an alternate provider in the future if desired. Anyone else out there know for sure?

    Just checked mine and it’s 4.0.2 – arrived on Friday (ordered the same day they came out in stores at around 11:30am)

  • Exact same location & destination. Ordered July 30th at 5:30am and with Express shipping.

    Surely glad I paid that extra $13 Apple tax 🙂

  • Guest

    I’m in Vancouver so it looks like it’s making its way via truck from the east. Fingers crossed on receiving it tomorrow.

    2010-08-22 20:00:00 Arrived at FedEx Ramp CALGARY, AB

  • appleaddict

    i opted for the expedited but when i was billed it was not charged although on my order it still shows expedited and looking at the tracking info it seems to be travelling expedited considering it shipped friday and now is saying released for delivery as of monday 450AM eastern time.. anyone else get free expedited shipping?

  • owais

    update: Shipping status changed to “Shipped” on Saturday night and UPS tracking number updated. Apple sent an email confirmation that it has been shipped. The tracking number still shows as being invalid on UPS website. I am hoping to get it in a couple of days. At this time I am not sure if its coming from within north America or China.

    I will be back with another update on this when available.

    Cant wait to get my iphone 4 in the Speck PixelSkin HD case!

    – owais

  • IphoneVirgin

    So according to FedEx, my phones were supposed to arrive 5mins ago. I just called FedEx because the last information shown was from Friday/Saturday showing that they were released for delivery from Missausaga and there is no information on either (they shipped separately for some reason… i wasn’t being selfish ordering 2, one’s for my boyfriend)tracking number saying that they actually arrived into Vancouver. She said that it is possible for them to get missed on the scanning and still get loaded and sent out for delivery but she’d still file a claim and call me back to see if they could be tracked down.

    Anyone else experience anything like this? I’m hoping they just missed scanning and they are on way (I also paid express shipping) but I’m very worried someone stole them as I have heard that has happened a few times…

  • TBeats

    Just got my new unlocked 32 gb iPhone 4 from FedEx and I’m quite excited. For anybody ordering from Apple online I think you should know that unless you already have a SIM card from a carrier, you will NOT be able to activate your phone and it will be useless until you do. So the moral of this story is to get that SIM ASAP!

  • Guest

    I’m in Vancouver and I received mine this morning (I paid for 2-3day shipping). I think the fedex tracking system is messed up. It says it was scanned in Calgary and then 17min later it was scanned in Vancouver. If you haven’t already, use the Yahoo Fedex tracker, it shows information that is filtered out on the official fedex tracker.

    Can someone please tell me why so many new iphone owners prefer to have the older iOS version 4.0.1 or 4.0 on it? I have the original 4.0 on my phone and i never accepted the firmware upgrade. Picked mine up on launch date 07/30/10.

    Im just curious to know b/c if there is something wrong or if there is a disadvantage of having the 4.0.2 version then i wont upgrade.

    Thanks!

    Good advice! Also, Apple stores have micro-sims for each carrier and will give it to you free, just picked mine up and am still waiting for my iPhone 4. Not sure about other carriers, but Rogers is charging $11.

  • Guest

    I’m not sure if this has changed but I believe you cannot jailbreak your iphone on v4.0.2.

  • got mine today (Monday, 23 August at 10 am). 3 days later than estimated when shipped – or 4 days earlier than when I ordered it (30 July) – depending on your perspective.

    Edwardo

  • IphoneVirgin

    Thanks. I also paid the express shipping fee…. Yea FedEx’s site only showed up to departing Memphis. Yahoo only showed them being released for delivery Saturday Morning out of Missisauga. I got worried because 1030am today had rolled around (that’s when they said it’d be delivered by) and nothing and still no update on it’s whereabouts. Called FedEx who said they’d get back to me because they didn’t know… Just talked to another guy from there and he couldn’t give me a reason (I called again because it no longer even showed a delivery date) but he said they are now coming by tomorrow morning 10:30…. I guess I’ll have to wait & see. But I wasted my day off waiting for it and now I won’t see it til tomorrow night… Hopefully!

    Thanks again!

  • Iwantmyiphone4now!

    Did your tracking info ever update from “Released for Delivery” after Mississauga before it delivered to you?

  • Guest

    For some people in BC waiting for their phones today: According to FedEx there was a problem with an aircraft so some are delayed an extra day.

  • Anonymous

    You cannot downgrade unless you have the SHSH blobs on file with Saruik’s auth. server. Unless you previously jailbroke on 4.0 or 4.0.1 you CANNOT roll back.

  • Guest

    I can confirm that you can get a micro sim card from the apple retail stores for free. I just went to the location at Oakridge mall and received one for Fido w/o having to show a receipt. Fido’s website is down right now so I had to use the micro sim cutter I bought on ebay before hand on my old sim. Also, mine came with 4.0.2.

  • owais

    Hi,

    I ordered the Speck PixelSkin HD case fro the free case program for iphone 4. I placed my order on July 30th (Launch Date).

    I got an email from apple on Sunday Morning 08/22 that it has been shipped along with UPS tracking number and expected delivery by Aug 24th (Today).

    However UPS did not have any record of that tracking number in their system till 9pm yesterday and even now it only says they have recieved billing info. I doubt ill be recieving the case today.

    Does anyone else know how long it takes from this point to recieve the case from UPS? I call the apple store last night and they said its coming from US. can anyone please verify this? i thought all shipments were coming from Cina or is it only Fedex shipments that are coming from China?

    Please help.

    Thanks!
