    Ditto. I'm hopeful they'll be in by Friday. I'm heading to Halifax tomorrow, so I'll call around to all the stores in there to see if they've got them. But as was mentioned, Truro comes before Cape Breton and they have 'em there.. But you have to get off the 104 and take the first exit on the 102.. So I'm guessing if they were delivered by truck, the truck never left the 104 which means they didn't get to Halifax either.

    I saw that you had just posted and said to myself:

    I'm going to enter this thread and read: "I finally got it!"

    I feel your pain man. Same situation here, waiting for a bell store in my area to get their **** together and sell me something they had advertised as available half a month ago. Ridiculous really, I wonder if either of us will get one while the $50 off promotion is on.. only 3 days left.

    You're right! I said it myself in an earlier post. For some reason I was thinking November lol. In that case I'm sure we will both have one before the deal is over.

    Edit* After complaining at my local Bell store, the worker said they'll order one in from another store. It's on the way now! @64GUNSHIP, Maybe you should see if your local Bell store will do the same?

    I'll have to try that.. I'm tired of waiting. I was at an executive conference today and was talking with a few folks from AML communications (sell Rogers phones all over Eastern Canada)... And they've got the 8X in their Halifax stores.

    I'm not a Bell customer. Is it possible to buy it from Bell off contract? Will they sell it to me when I'm not a customer? I could unlock it online if they did.

    For those folks having trouble finding the phone in Bell stores, have a look at The Source.
    Their website has stock info and there is stock at many locations throughout Nova Scotia, including Truro.
    I had the same issue here on Vancouver Island locating the 8X and was able to find one through the Source on the weekend. They are able to do the early upgrade as well.

    Bell owns The Source? I thought they just had a partnership to sell their phones lol. Does RadioShack still exist in Canada? Did Bell buy them out?

    Either way lol. They did have em in stock but I can't get to Truro until tomorrow.. One delay after another lol

    I do miss the dark blacks of my Samsung, but the more realistic colours make it a fair trade off!

    I also picked up an Avoca rubber case for it, the only one they had. As much as I really do hate cases, I'm going to use one for the meantime at least until the problems with colours wearing off gets sorted.
    Avoca Mobile Products : HTC 8X Cool Wave Transparent - BLUE

    I was on the phone for almost 4 hours last night and had more than 50% battery remaining, so no complaints there yet!

    So what exactly is the $0 term with the 8X at Bell? I ask because I'm hearing you get a $50 store credit. If that's the case, what did you guys put it towards?
