I just went back and forth with a rep on facebook. The exact message they sent me, based on my order & account number, was this: "The device should leave our warehouse today, or tomorrow. Once it does, Canada Post tracking number will be sent to you within 24 hours."
Well the status changed from "Order approved" to "Order received" with this:
We're processing your order, which you should receive in 3 to 5 business days. When your order ships, we'll send you the tracking number.
So, I guess that I won't have a same day delivery as a rep told me earlier this morning...
It's ridiculous now, in french the text below "Order received" is not the same as in english. In french, it's the same one as "Order approved" with still 15th as delivery date. I had a chat on the french Facebook's page of Telus, simply put, the fault is on Samsung for the late shipping. Also, according to them, It's not because the shipping is late that we will receive the phone after everybody else. Sounds to me that the quantity in store will be very low for the launch tomorrow.
I am starting to not like this pre-order system. I thought for sure we would have the device before it hit shelves. Apparently if you pre-order through a carrier then you may be out of luck. I am highly doubtful at this point that I will have the device by tomorrow, but stranger things have happened. 🙂
