Telus is no longer taking reservations for iPhone 4s

I phoned up Telus Mobility on a billing matter unrelated to the iPhone 4s, but still got a recorded message, that Telus is not taking any more pre-orders for the gadget.

Ok, thanks for the heads up. I will feel more comfortable with it being here once someone uses it and even better when it shows up on Apple's website.

The reservation link is working but it doesn't even list the 4S yet (as of Wednesday morning), just the 3GS and the 4 - and it shows those two as being unavailable.

I'm wondering if anyone has a guess when the 4S might appear on there, and when it might be available. I can remember last year with the iPhone 4 they had the reservation system up but I can't remember if it was something that only kicked in at the last minute, or the night before, or whatever.

Cancelled my pre-order.... SaskTel now says they will have the 4S on October 28th and the $500 difference between 64GB unlocked from Apple and 3 year contract price from SaskTel was NOT WORTH it

It's a day to go, and the reservation system still isn't showing anything yet. Maybe they won't have any unlocked phones for tomorrow? Or maybe it's just going to be a real last-minute thing.

Yeah I checked the reservation system again this morning and no luck... I'll try my luck after work tomorrow in hopes that I can get one. But I'm not expecting too..

It appears that Siri doesn't fully work in Canada, according to the Toronto Star: "When Siri works, it works great, and never ceased to amaze the people I showed it to. But – there’s always a catch – directions, maps and restaurant searches won’t work in Canada. Ask about Indian restaurants in Denver and Siri will list the top-rated ones, but ask the same question for Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver and she tells me Canada isn’t supported. I received the same response when I instructed Siri to take me to the CN Tower. But say “take me to Buffalo, New York,” and Siri will open up the Maps application and show me the way from my home as the starting point. Hopefully Canada will be supported sooner than later." Fabulous.

Not a surprise that Siri doesn't fully work.
