According to a family friend who works at Fido, the expected contract pricing for the iPhone 5 on Fido will be the standard $199/$299/$399 for the 16GB/32GB/64GB...

If I have an unlocked phone, does it become locked when I use the carrier's sim, or can I change carriers and put anyone's sim in the phone and the phone stays unlocked?

Hello!

Is Rogers gonna offer the iPhone5 in their online reservation system? Did it offer the 4S? I waited in line for the 4 and I'd prefer not to renew the experience...

Don't even know why I put off preordering the 4S last time. I'm just gonna preorder this thing on Friday. What time do I need to get up to place the preorder?

Carriers starting to put iPhone 5 Info online

The carriers have started putting iPhone 5 info and/or splash pages on their site.

Rogers:

Rogers just has a splash image on their main page, but clicking on it just brings you to an under construction page:



Bell

Bell's similar splash image brings you to a page with iPhone marketing, but not much else in terms of details of plans or upgrade options yet.

Fido

Fido has a splash page going to a similar marketing page.

Telus
Telus (seeing a trend here?) has just a marketing page as well.

Virgin Mobile
Finally, Virgin Mobile has the same boiler plate iPhone 5 landing page as well.

I do kind of feel bad for the carriers - I'm sure they were told a new phone was coming, but to really only give them one day to get things in order for a pre-order is pretty crazy.

Unless they were told more ahead of time and they're just dragging their feet... which is a possibility as well.

Can pre-orders be cancelled? I want to pre-order just in case I can in fact upgrade and get a new, better plan. But if it falls through, I'd like to be able to walk away.

I'm actually surprised how fast they got the splash pages up and acknowledgement of the iPhone 5 this time.

I agree! They've been much slower in the past.

I'll be online at an ungodly hour to try to reserve through Rogers.
