From the iPhone 4S reservation system by Rogers, keep in mind that reserving with Rogers won't necessarily mean you'll get an iPhone 5 on launch day. Last year, their reservation system was a hot mess. The had some stock for launch day, but they didn't use any of those for reservations, just walk ins. It wasn't until sometime after the launch that they started fulfilling reservations.

Maybe different this time, but I'll wait until they have more details.

You can cancel, you'll just lose the pre-order fee that would otherwise be reimbursed. It's $40+tax for Rogers.

You can pre-order through Rogers tonight? Seems like everybody said you can only pre-order unlocked through Apple's online store.

For the 4S, you could sort of order from Rogers the same time as Apple.ca. Apple had the phone go on sale at about 3:00 AM in Canada, but Rogers and Telus system didn't go online until about 6:00 AM.

If its anything like the 4S release, it will be a pain in the rear to order a new iPhone. The system should work well, but so much demand made it incredibly difficult to order one. I bought an unlocked 4S, did not pre order, just went through the reservation system on release date. Literally took about 5 days of fighting with their down servers to actually get one on order, plus limited supplies meant those lucky enough to get through on the servers got them faster.

When did the unlocked iPhone 4S preorders ship last year? Did your phone arrive in the mail on launch day? I'm thinking I might as well just pre-order, then I assume any Rogers store will be able to activate my nano sim? Does apple include the nano-sim?

Unless they were told more ahead of time and they're just dragging their feet... which is a possibility as well.
I don't feel bad for the carriers at all. Everyone and their babies knew that the iPhone 5 was being announced on September 12th. Pricing and availability were an unknown, but Apple announced during their presentation on stage that iPhone 5 would work on LTE with Rogers/Fido, Telus/Koodo, and Bell/Virgin. So they HAD to have talked to the carriers already about this.

The fact that the carriers are all only linking to boilerplate pages that duplicate Apple's own marketing pages, STILL, 24 hours later with no word on pre-orders (despite the fact that Apple's pre-orders happen in about ~12 hours as of this posting) is pretty lame. Can't they get their acts together and at least have pricing info posted?

My big question is gonna be - I have a 6GB Data plan... will that get upgraded to LTE to use with the new phone, or will I have to pay more and/or get a different plan to use with LTE?

Apple may be embargoing carriers from releasing any details. That's a very likely scenario.
