Subject line says it all.

On the phone with a Rogers rep this morning I asked about the iPhone 4 and he said that they have decided not to go with the device until the antenna design problem is solved from a hardware standpoint (not simply use a case).

Can anyone confirm this?

That rep must have really wanted to close a sale, assuming the OP is not a crank.

Like Rogers is going to pass on the i4 while Bell and Telus clean-up. Not to mention, such a stunt would almost certainly result in Rogers no longer having access to iPhones. Apple wouldn't hesitate to freeze-out a company that embarrassed it by pulling a stunt like that.

Oh, the things reps say...
Sometimes when I talk to them I have a feeling I am communicating with an alternate universe, especially when it's on the phone. :)

Maybe not a crook - My corporate rep @ Bell told me this afternoon - Bell is reviewing the situation and there may be a delay beyond the 30th of July...even though it's posted on Bell's site.

Cheers

Might be some credibility if Apple announced it's delaying sales in Canada AND we saw a sudden gap in shipping dates for i4s ordered in the USA. That would suggest Apple has come up with a change to the design of the antenna and re-tooling production, with the delays inherent in that. Until Apple announces a delay in shipping to Canada and the other countries scheduled for July 30, I call "nonsense".

Nope...my Rogers rep says details out by july27...launching July 30...both black and white...same pricing as USA

Things could change, but doubt it.

No you are correct, Apple has recently delayed White for everyone (not just Canada).

Best Buy Canada is now advertising iphone 4 July 30th for all carriers. So looks like it is a go even if Rogers hasn't done full presser yet.
