Maybe it was the Karma Police that came calling, but Rogers system was so overloaded that many stores across the country could not fill iPhone orders all day today. I was the very first iPhone that left my local Rogers Wireless store today, and I just got it at 4:30pm. I'm still chuckling about it.
I "pre-ordered" my cell phone the day Steve Jobs announced iPhone was coming to Canada last month. Apparently they cut off this system the day after, but were obliged to honour the pre-orders. I walked in today several hours after the store opened, noticing lines had died down considerably by mid-morning.
They explained that the computer system had crashed, and only when I walked in that it was coming back online, albeit very SLOOOOOW. Come back in a few hours, or when we call you.
I went back to work, and noticed my cell phone Sim card no longer worked. Guess they had completed my order (5 hours later). I walked in, bing bam boom, and had my iPhone.
Syncing it now.
