Sources: iPhone 4 Release Date in Canada on July 23rd

Update 1: Just had an email from a Bell source–July 23rd date mentioned again.

In their latest PR release about iPhone 4 sales, Apple once again confirmed the iPhone 4 will be launched in Canada “by the end of July”. We have received two separate emails that provide specific information to corroborate a pending July 23rd launch.

According to our tipster, with close ties to an Apple Store, here are some vague details “CS” was able to provide:

  • Word around the store is a July 23rd launch for the iPhone 4.
  • Employees have been asked to start shifts at 7:00AM on that day.
  • No one is allowed to book time off on that day.

The above details are identical to what was provided regarding the iPad’s rumoured April 24th launch in Canada–until it was delayed by Apple.

Earlier today, another story popped up online with a similar date (their source was from a major carrier, not an Apple Store), but of course we have to always take these rumours with a grain of salt. We previously predicted July 23rd or July 30th, the last two Fridays of the month. Right now, the former is looking to be the best bet for the iPhone 4 launch in Canada.

All we can do now is wait. Rest assured that as we inch closer into July, the iPhone 4 launch date will soon by announced by Rogers, Bell, and Telus on the same day (they like to do things in tandem).

  • SF

    Hopefully the white one will be there too.

  • Dave

    Finally…
    Do you think there will be preorders available on the site?

  • rorypiper

    Good enough for me! I'm going to go get in line! πŸ™‚

  • Noahattic

    july 23rd, that's not bad at all. i think the white version will be available and the screen issue will be fixed at the time. but…………r they gonna fix the antennas issue by the time they're shipping the 2nd release? that's the thing really annoying me about the new iphone…..

  • Besh

    I've never been in an iphone lineup before – assuming it opens at 7a.m, what time do you think you should show up to be able to grab a phone (not necessarily be first in line, but be relatively safe in securing your own copy)? 5a.m?

  • Wait for me!

  • Carl

    My Fido contract is renewable on that date, coincidence!?

  • Earlier the better I'd say. 5AM sounds about right to be “guaranteed” one.

  • We've never had iPhone pre-orders in Canada before. This could be the first if it happens.

  • I really like the theory that Apple/Rogers/etc is going to annouce this on Canada Day – wouldn't that be nice? πŸ˜‰

  • mackman6151

    hmm i wonder if us Canadian's will get a pre-order time a few weeks in advance and 2 days early delivery too, jusdt like our good “friends” in the USA πŸ˜›

  • Draz

    Can't wait! I hope for pre-orders too!

    Hopefully a news release this week or next week for the latest

  • Patt

    I have a question. Am I going to be able to get an iPhone 4 at an Apple store for the reduced 3-year telus contract price. Or will I have to line up at my telus provider guys store?

  • Ex

    You can go to the Apple Store.

  • Anthony

    Still wary about the antenna though

  • Brandonline

    what if i want to renew my contract so that i can get the reduced price on the iphone?

    do i line up at my cell phone provider? or can i line up at apple, who has the power to renew my contract and everything?

  • Jreid2375

    OMG..Thats my Birthday!! What an awesome Birthday Gift!!! A new iPhone shows up on my doorstep with great reception, and a personal message from Steve Jobs that reads Happy Birthday!!! Lets hope at least one of these happens.

  • Could I just go in a week later and get one without hassle…?

  • Ann Nonimus

    If you look around you'll see that direct contact with the lower left side causes the lost signal. Using an iPhone case seems to solve that problem OR holding it with your right hand. Some say it's a matter of an OS update and I personally feel that it's a good thing it's coming later to Canada (most of the bugs can be worked out by then).

  • Zeke2d

    Yeah, but the problem is that most people are left handed, so they hold their phone in their left hand and use their right hand to do all the tapping, controlling the phone. Isn't this a hardware issue? So how can it be solved with an OS update, it would be great if it could however, because I read somewhere they might change the frequency or something.

  • Guest

    The personal message from Steve Jobs is more likely…

  • Wuju

    I want the factory unlock model. So they sell it only at the Apple store, right?

  • Noahattic

    if you really think about the issue, it definitely cannot be fixed by a firmware update. that's a design flaw. i really hope they will fix this before releasing in canada.

    i need a phone with not really great reception but at least average and stable.

  • Noahattic

    i have a rogers store 5 mins walk away from my house..

  • DocBurN

    same question, my 3y contract with fido is over.. can I get a iphone4 with a reduced price at a Best Buy store, signing a new 3 years contract if i am a paying no-contract customer right now. ?

  • Christopher Jones

    Happy Birthday!

  • Joker Eh

    No wait for me!

  • Joker Eh

    Well if you want or should I say need one on opening day then you will have to wait in line. But you can jsut call Rogers or which ever provider you choose and call and order over the phone and you get it within 3 days. At least thats what I did when I ordered my 3G.

    When the 3G was released I waited in line at a Rogers store from about 5 AM. I was 6th in line and I didn't get the phone I wanted. The people in front of me ordered more than one of the 16GB Black. And all they had were white 8GB. So I was out of luck and just went to work called rogers and ordered it.

    Now I think stores (this included carriers and apple) should only limit one per customer on opening day. And hopefully they have the model I want what ever the day is.

  • Adam

    I'm currently with Robbers Wireless, but was planning on jumping ship to Fido and grabbing the iPhone 4. Do I have to go to a Fido store? Where else can I go?

  • een

    That would be awesome!

  • Arif

    Fido Store and Apple Store are your best bets bud. I suggest an Apple Store because they usually have more stock.

  • Hagow

    I am in Toronto and with Rogers. Can I wait at the Apple Store if I want one that is subsidized? I know I get the unlock one for full price but what if I don't care about unlock. Do I also reserve one at the Apple Store before I go line up?

    The Apple Stores are also in malls how the heck do I get in the mall at 5:00am?

    So confused…

  • Hagow

    one more thing…

    If we get an unlocked one where do we get the micro sim? do we need to line up at both Rogers and Apple?

    I also heard that cutting the miniSIM works though.

  • djepsilon

    Ha! I beat all you suckers. I'm already IN line.

  • STEPH

    can't you preorder one? and then your are guaranteed one??

  • roadcarver

    I'm going to wait until the dust settles and the stampede stops. Additionally, need to find out what the contract pricing is / unlocked phone pricing will be.

  • Eric

    Thanks for sharing that information. Highly appreciated.

  • Eric

    yes

  • redjediknight

    I have a question though, does Future Shop, Best Buy, Walmart and other phone companies that are tied in with the big three–will they also release the iPhone 4 or will it be specifically only on the Apple Store?

  • Ex

    Both.
    Apple Store or the provider.

  • Ex

    Yup

  • Ex

    Apple Store

  • Ex

    Yes, Apple Store.
    You'll wait outside until the mall doors open.

  • ADAS

    THATS TOO LONG OF A WAIT!

  • Ex

    Correct

  • Question: if you're not with Rogers and want to get a phone do you have to goto the Rogers store or can you goto the Apple store?

  • Be a nice Canada Day birthday present for the country.

  • Ex

    Well if you're not with Rogers, you won't go to Rogers. But, no matter who you're with, it's better to go to the Apple Store

  • So will Rogers have a presence there to sign you up at the Apple store or do you goto the Rogers store to get your account setup afterwards?

  • That would be very nice.

  • xxl

    Buddy !!! You can get it from Bell, Telus , Virgin or Fido if you choose or buy (unlocked) outright from apple and go month to month on the carrier of your choice.

  • iphone3g_with_no_wifi

    Friend of mine who works in Telus Headquarter told me that they will start test iPhone 4 on their network from next week and the phone will be released one or two weeks from there (2 – 3 weeks from now). According to the information I have, July 23rd sounds about the right. He told me there will be no delay. We will see what will happened. Cross the fingers πŸ™‚

  • Hyperextension

    Sweet. I will be pre-ordering (hopefully) an unlocked unit through Apple and if all goes good, be receiving it on July 23. Unlocked is pricey, but I travel alot overseas and it is nice to get a prepaid SIM from a carrier and pop into the phone.

  • I understand that… my question would you be able to sign up for the carrier at the Apple store (will Rogers/Bell/Telus have a booth or something) or would you have to goto the carrier's store after getting the phone to sign up?

    I ask because I know in order to get subsidized pricing you have to resign for a three year contract (and some of us will have to do that as we can't afford $700 for a phone). How do the carriers know you got a new phone and resign you if you didn't buy it from them directly?

    Am I making sense here?

  • Ex

    Apple employees can do all that (since August 2009).
    They can do activations, upgrades, etc for all carriers.

  • Ex

    lol
    They're not testing anything.

  • Ex

    Apple Store employees do it all. In some cases, they have more access than the carrier stores themselves.

  • Joker Eh

    Nope.

  • excaliburca

    Ok… thank you, that answers my question.

  • Hagow

    Malls have like 5 entrances at least. I can see everyone dashing for the Apple Store when the gates open. lol

    I hope they put a line up sign or something.

  • Ex

    Also, many malls open at 5AM anyway to let in custodian staff. So at that
    time, you could go into the mall but no stores will be open.

  • Joker Eh

    Ex,

    Where can I go to get an iPhone 4 on the day it is released????

  • Tim

    Rogers owns Fido … so you'll be jumping to the same ship

  • Ex

    Your local Apple Store. They will have tons of stock and everyone there can
    access your Rogers/Fido/Bell/Virgin/Telus information.

  • stuhFAN

    They also open the doors early to let in the “mall-walkers”, aka old creepy people.

  • Ex

    lol
    RESPECT YOUR ELDERS!!

  • Hagow

    Hoping to be a mall walker that day at 5am. Going to the nearest entrance. SquareOne Mall has 1 brand new Apple Store and 2 Rogers stores just in case something goes wrong.

  • LukeSchenn

    If we want a rare white one would it be a safer bet to go to the apple store or a robbers wireless store?

  • Ex

  • Vartanarsen

    Hi Ex…question. I am from Boston. On July 23rd, I wish to drive up to Laval Carrefour and wait in line to purchase a Factory-Unlocked version of iPhone 4. I will then bring it back with me to Boston, to use with T-Mobile. 1. Will they let me purchase it at the store? Apple Canada Online only ships to Canadian Addresses. 2. If they do, will they take my american credit cards, or do i need to use CAD (so i stop at ATM before hand). 3. When i drive back, will i have ot pay anything on the border? 4. Will i need to learn French? hehe

  • Ex

    Assuming it comes out July 23,

    1.) Yes, if you buy in store.

    2.) Visa, MC, Amex, all accepted. Doesn't matter what country you're from.

    3.) You'll have to declare it or risk losing it. You'll pay a small duty on the item.

    4.) No. English is better anyway. πŸ™‚

  • Nick

    Hey, He is going to Laval. Everyone there speaks french. So you'll most likely have to speak french there, or lucky enough to find someone who speaks english correctly.
    Also, Ex, Who are you to tell that English is better ??
    The fact that you're too idiot to speak it, doesn't mean it's a bad language.

    Cheers

  • Ex

    Hey Nick,

    Watch your mouth and learn to take a joke. Wake up.

  • steve lam

    there is no pre-order in canada.

  • Zeke2d

    All you need to say is: Je veux un iPhone 4 qui est unlocked”

    I know only little french so correct me please, french people

  • tecc

    The 8gb didn't have a white version on release

  • nidx

    Dang, I was hoping to get it before I leave for comic-con on the 20th. it will be very frustrating being surrounded by iphone 4's down there.

  • Alextzo12

    I want to ask something, well my father is visiting Toronto somewhere in middle August and i want him to buy me the iPhone 4 from there as it is cheaper than here (Greece) well where should he get it from? From the Apple store??? And will there be any devices left for him to buy???
    Thank you

  • Ex

    Go to Apple Store

  • Rukk

    If I buy an iPhone 4 with Rogers at the Apple Store, will it be unlocked?

  • Ex

    No.
    If you're doing a contract, it's locked.

  • Alextzo12

    Ok also can i buy it without a phone contract because in the online apople store to buy one you need to have an AT&T contract, i ust want to buy one without contacts or anything.,..;
    Thank you

  • Rukk

    Alright, that's what I thought. Thanks.

    Doesn't matter, I need a contract so I'll be stuck 3 years with them anyway.

  • Ex

    If you buy from an Apple Store in Canada, yes, unlocked full price

  • Paul

    Does anyone know if you can use your fido dollars at the apple store?

  • Ex

    When renewing on a contract, yes.

  • megh

    ouch, that's sucks! I'm assuming at least if we want to avoid the lines we will be able to order online on July 23rd without too much wait for it to reach our doorstep?

    Packing the kids for a road trip to get a phone seems a little more obsessed then I'd like to admit I am πŸ˜‰

    Separate.

  • Chris_10101

    Kind of off topic…
    Looking to buy the new iPhone 4 and I would like to know about plan costs…
    What is the minimum cost of the lowest plan for the iPhone. I know the base price is $50 but what about including all the service charges and taxes.
    I'm hoping no more than $65 ($60 would be even better)
    Thanks!

  • Draz

    I'm curious on how Apple Store's iPhone stock works…

    Do they get the phones pre-locked to the network upon arrival, or do they get say 100 units unlocked and apply the lock once the device is activated?

    And I'm still debating on if I should line up at the Apple Store or go to a Rogers Store… I know the Apple Store at Eaton Centre in Toronto would have a huge stock but the line-up would be hours long… Fairview Mall might be slightly better but still be long… AH the decisions! C'mon Pre-orders!

  • Draz

    Not even $60 if you include all taxes and fees which vary by province and provider.

  • Chris_10101

    really? thats good news. the only thing holding me back is the plan cost so glad is 'relatively' low

  • nac12

    I can wait, but it is a little ridiculous that our launch is a whole month later than the initial launch, given our proximity to the U.S. and the much smaller quantity needed (relative to the U.S.) to satisfy demand up here.

  • K Kaniff

    i'd be interested to see if the white version gets released on july 23rd as well.

  • Joshjackson

    “will soon by announced by Rogers, Bell, and Telus on the same day (they like to do things in tandem).”

    If you don't care if its locked or unlocked and are ok with it being on a contract, then why not just go to a local Rogers store (or whatever provider you want). Get the phone from them, locked in your contract.

  • asdmd

    Well if best buy offers them with a carrier yes you can, but again, why not just go to the carrier you want on release day. Get your phone and contract.

    How would the apple store honor that deal, they are not a cellular provider. If you are buying an unlocked iphone 4, you keep your plan and the only thing you'll need is a new sim from FIDO. If you are ready to sign a 3 year agreement again you can keep your plan and get an iphone 4.

  • Ex

    If it's already on your account, there's nothing to honor.

  • Ex

    Cause the carrier stores typically have pushy and uninformed sales people.

  • Ex

    Apple just calls fido and honors it. Easy.

  • Hi Alex. Unlike in the U.S., in Canada the iPhone will be available unlocked at Apple Stores.

    You should reserve an iPhone for pickup at the Apple Store Eaton Centre, which is in downtown Toronto.

  • luca

    you think will have the white one in canada when it releases here? i also what u to answer this question doe sthe white iphone seem more feminine cuz i wante dteh black one at first but then looked at the white and liked it more what do you think??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The white iPhone is neither feminine or masculine. It is a personal
    preference.

    Hi Ex, would it be faster to preorder the iPhone or line up at a store on the release date? I currently do not have a phone and I would love to get my first phone as soon as possible πŸ˜›

  • Ex

    Probably either way.

    Pre-ordering will likely ensure it arrives on the day of release or maybe
    one day later.

    Waiting in line guarantees you one on launch day, that is if you are at
    least in the 100th or less position in line.

    i think the unlocked phone pricing will be very similar to the 3GS when it first came out.. in the Key note, they moved the 3GS down to the price point of the 3G and the 4G took the price point of the 3GS… i think they will start at $649/699 up to $749/799 for the most GBs one… i been doing ALOT of research trying to find out!! =D

    It will be worth the wait, because by the time it gets to us, they will know and hopefully fix all the bugs and unknown problems the people in the U.S have been first to discover! =)

  • Roo

    i think the price works out to be about the same no matter where you buy it.. its best to buy it in your own country though, so you know you will be able to use it to its full potential.. where as if you buy it from the states you may have problems.. =D if you have to wait a little bit longer, just think that you will have the better phone, because apple has had time to fix any problems! =D

  • Roo

    Whites cool!! Like STORM TROOPERS!! LOL you could get a black/blue/green bumper to man it up a bit if you feel like its to “girly” lol I REALLY REALLY HOPE APPLE GETS ITS *BEEP* SORTED SO WE CAN HAVE THE WHITE ONE ON RELEASE DAY!!! =D

  • Roo

    maybe.. in the states you only have to be on a 2 year contract… and if your 3GS contract expires this year then you can upgrade by just paying for the new iphone.. uhh but you have to resign to AT&T with your new phone.. maybe canada will offer something similar !!

  • Roo

    maybe you can get your brother to pre-order it for you from an apple store or when they have pre-ordering online?? =D

  • Roo

    me 3!

  • Roo

    I'd go to the Apple store!! They probably have more stock.. and that way you get what you want! Who cares about the wait, everyone will be excited to get there new phones.. and apple seems to make it a pretty big deal so it might be. umm fun.. lol

  • Roo

    that sounds like a whole lot of effort.. go on you tube and jailbreak a U.S one, and then you know it will work in the states too!! Im a 25yr old female.. basic computer knowledge.. i jailbroke the very first iphone.. if i can do it, you can do it! Its super easy!!

  • Biggy204

    I wouldn't want to commit to the iphone4 just yet, if I were you guys. There's already like multiple Class Action Suits against both AT&T and Apple just south of the boarder.

    http://gizmodo.com/5577010/first-iphone-4-class

    Is all the proof i need to see that the phone may be delayed here in Canada and wherever country that will have the same Release date. Let's hope Mr Jobs does his JOB right and fix these issues, otherwise the money Apple made on the 1.7 million iphone4 units sold, will all go back to those who sued the pants off of Apple and AT&T in the USA

    BTW, I am still getting the iphone 4 just not right away due to my 3G being enough for me as a phone for now, and i don't really need any of those iOS 4.0 features as they are simply replicated on a JB iphone.

    i was in England on the release day and I walked into some carrier store not sure which and asked if they had more in stock if i did not preoder one and they said they had 8 so i dont think you will have trouble getting your hands on one if you go through a provider, besides alot of ppl arent willing to dish out 800 as they just got the 3gs a year ago and cant update

    I figured they were going to do that too.

    Hi. I was wondering are there any people from Montreal planning to wait on line on July 23?
    I am planning to wait on line at the Fairview Pointe Claire.

    I was hoping to start a meetup launch group?

    Anyone here buy previous iphones from there? When did you all start waiting on line?

    Do people know if upgrades are available right away? I have a Iphone 3G and am eligable for an upgrade and am going to use it on the Iphone 4. I have seen in the past where it was only new users who can get phones when they are first released. Anyone have any ideas?

  • JonnyDub

    I believe so. I've asked around at 3 or 4 Rogers Wireless stores just checking if I'm eligible to upgrade right away at the advertised price point, and they said it shouldn't be a problem. I have a 3G as well (got it July 12/08); they told me as long as it's 24 months (to the day) into my contract, I should be eligible. Hopefully that helps!

  • JonnyDub

    I have a black iPhone 3G 8GB that I got in July 2008 and am looking to upgrade to the 32GB iPhone 4. I'm just wondering: Because I have an 8GB, can I only upgrade to an 8GB (which would be a 3GS) or does capacity not factor into the upgrade process?

  • Ex

    You can upgrade to any device.

  • Artie

    Does Apple have the power to give you a new plan or contract? Like don't they have to contact your cell phone carrier to do so?

  • Ex

    Nope.
    Apple Stores have the EXACT same access as each wireless carrier store.

  • Artie

    Wow, so that means the Apple employees have to know about every single carrier's individual contracts/plans/policies?

  • Ex

    Yep. Just like we at the site know as well. It's actually very simple.

  • Diesel

    Hey Ex. i am going away on the 21st and returning on aguest 19th can i pre order one and go to my local fedex post office and pick it up later?

  • Ex

    If you pre-order and no one signs for it when it arrives at your door, then
    yes, FedEx will hold it until you pick it up.

  • Diesel

    ok great cant w8!

  • Diesel

    lol made a wrong reply to myself
    anyways cant wait for it!

  • J.

    why going crazy and line up at 5 a.m.???? Why can't you people wait and get it later on? What will change in a week for example? Why such a hype???

    I have done, ps2 launch way back in the day, the original iphone launch in buffalo, xbox 360 and PS3 launches… and all those I was there 12 hours before, and about 3rd to 6th in line for each.
    Even for the Modern Warfare 2 launch, I was there 5 hours before, and there was a line of 20 people.

    how come on the other post it says july 30th?

  • JonnyDub

    This release date was just speculation. No one knew the official date until now.

  • Applerock!

    iPhone 4 officially comes out on July 30th in Canada. Download the version 4.1 to get rid of some of the bugs in it. There will be no more unlimited data plan anymore either. Buy a bumper for $29.99 at most phone retailers to fix the antenna problem. Also I recommend the Zagg INVISIBLEshield for your iPhone 4 to prevent scratches. If your still reading the FaceTime will only be over wifi an will Not be over the 3G network. IMPORTANT: Buy phone insurance for the iPhone 4 due to all the problems (if your service provider let's you). Last but not least I'm not an Apple obsessed geek.
