    Bell told me if I pay off my pre-ordered my S4 is guaranteed. 🙂 So I did. Hopefully, it wasn’t BS.

      It all depends on how many devices Samsung sends to them. You can not blame the carriers or the reps at the stores if Samsung sends limited stock to the stores. Blame Samsung on that.

    • Rio

      While that is true, Bell was guaranteeing you an S4 if you pre ordered before yesterday 🙂 So either you get one of you get some sort of credit

    • EmptyTome

      They were guaranteeing for the 27th. I doubt they are going to hold that promise.

    • Dimitri

      Yes but Samsung Canada just said tomorrow is a no go. Read this. Its on their Facebook page as well.

      “Samsung is excited to see the level of pre-orders that Canadian
      consumers have for the GALAXY S4. Samsung Canada had intended to ship
      pre-orders by the 27th, but due to the overwhelming global demand of the
      Samsung GALAXY S4, we will not be able to meet the pre-order date of April 27th for all customers. These orders remain the highest priority with carrier and retail partners and will be fulfilled in the coming days.”

      Don’t promise something unless you’re absoultly sure. Oh well, if they are held back too long I can go with the HTC ONE.

    • Dimitri

      Dont promise anything? Bro go read Samsung Canada facebook page. They posted this on there.. SO i am sure.

    • EmptyTome

      They posted one day before the release. Do you know the definition of making a promise and breaking it? We’re release the S4 to pre orders on April 27th. One day before the launch let’s announce we’re pushing back the date. Not only they broke a promise they bait and switched.

      Blame Samsung on this, not me lol. They screwed up really bad & this is one of the reasons why i am not going with Samsung. They have done this 3 times now with their device. S2 LTE, Note 2 & now S4.

    • EmptyTome

      Not blaming ya, I’m blaming the carriers and Samsung. They broke a promise and did bait and switch. They should of done the pre orders in early April. You should see their face book page now. People aint happy lol.

      “we will not be able to meet the pre-order date of April 27th for all customers” Keyword ‘all’

      Doesn’t that mean that they will only ship a percentage of the reserved phones instead of all that were reserved?

    • Dimitri

      Not anymore. Read what Samsung just said on their Facebook page. Here you go. ” Samsung is excited to see the level of pre-orders that Canadian
      consumers have for the GALAXY S4. Samsung Canada had intended to ship
      pre-orders by the 27th, but due to the overwhelming global demand of the

      Well I just got a E-Mail informing me I MAY NOT get it this Saturday and offered $50 credit if I don’t. I guess it’s not so bad, I can use the $50, I mean I’m loving my hTc One.

    • Eric Tang

      Me too, rocking an HTC One and loving it…Also pre-ordered an S4 but definitely not a rush 🙂

  • YUyu

    price will drop to $0 in 6 months, go get it now,

    • vn33

      Wish I have the funding to get the latest and the greatest. I’ll just wait 12 months and get it at almost half price, no contract from the people who CAN afford to buy the latest 7 greatest !

    • Evayo

      Sounds like you could use a better job, or are you still in school?

  • David

    Marketing gimmick in play, who really thinks Samsung can’t crank out enough units in time. Its a false sense of scarcity to make it feel “exclusive”

    • Stephen

      Samsung aren’t HTC, people that aren’t MobileSyrup readers actually want their phones

  • Walter Feddern

    I was in position 1 for the white S4 with Rogers, and no ship notice, so doesn’t look like any are going out for tomorrow.

    • Me OpenId

      looks like your the only loser here. You parents must be really proud of you.

  • jeff kaczor

    $100 credit for what?

    • Drew

      are you trading in your phone?

    Bell’s statement is:

    “Thank you for pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S4TM with Bell. Due to shipping delays from Samsung we are unable to confirm when your phone will arrive in store, however rest assured that pre-orders will be prioritized upon shipment arrival. We value your business and for any inconvenience this causes, we will be giving you a $50 bill credit on your first bill upon activation. We will notify you when your phone arrives in store and we appreciate your patience.”

    From Bell email.

    I pre ordered my S4 on April 19 and was suppose to receive mine in store on the 27th. Now I got a email from bell saying they can’t confirm the date when I will receive my phone. They said they will give me a 50 dollar credit toward my bill. This Is all after me paying 199 on a 3 year contract and a 400 dollar deposit up front!

  • Danielle

    If they alk took pre orders well then samsung would know how many every company needs,then there wouldnt be shortages….

  • Beastmode

    Just one more reason to get the BEST PHONE the HTC One. Read the reviews and stop wasting your money on the Samsung/Apple S4. $199 for a piece of Plastic….please what a waste!!!

    I just received a text from Bell, my SGS4 will be available for pickup in store tomorrow. I preordered on the 15th and got the call last night about receiving $50 off my bill. Looks like its $50 for a one day delay which is fine with me.

    I’m in Newfoundland.

    • Penni Pope

      I also received a text saying mine will be available for pickup in store tomorrow. I also am in Newfoundland and apparently there were only 2 others that pre ordered it at the same store so I don’t know if that makes a difference.

    • Mark Murphy

      Text was bullshit, they didn’t get them in.

    • Penni Pope

      Did you get your phone after?

  • EmptyTome

    Aparantly mine will ship on monday.

  • Rand om Has ard

    For Canada, is it the octa core(exynos) or quad(snapdragon)?

  • Jerry D
