    Just got an email from the store that my 950XL is going to be ready for pick up tomorrow. As an FYI I preordered the phone in person back in October.
    Which store?

    Now to confuse things even further WPCentral just confirmed some stores are carrying them now and selling them now. Guess I will be stopping by there after all.

    I just got a phone call from my store in Burnaby, BC.... Will be available first thing tomorrow morning. He made double sure to ask me whether I pre-ordered or not. They were actually calling me about my band2 size exchange, was waiting for mediums.

    I see, that's a little worrisome. Well I actually pre-ordered online but they cancelled my order for some reason so when I wanted to pre-order it again it was already not available. When I called a few days back the lady say they should have enough units to sell other than the pre-order pick ups.

    Just received my 950 xl, nov 25, via UPS. Was shipped from Harrisburg, PA. Was ordered on nov 16. I am from Montreal.
    The unit is a dual sim with build 10586.0 and battery charged at 30%. When beginning the initial setup I was not able to enter my MS account. Gave me an error (don't remember). I had to reinitialize the phone from the system settings and after around 15 minutes of resetting I had been able to enter my MS account. And I chose my backup to restore from my previous Lumia 930. The restore went well.
    Than I started the appli update from the store. Around 32 appli had updates.

    I have a quality feeling when I have it in hand. Its not too big for me. Much lighter than my L930. I use a Moko case to protect it.
    While

    I will post other info after few days or using it

    So.... I got an email from MS as follows: Product Availability Notice Microsoft Lumia 950XL Good news: This product is now available at MicrosoftStore.ca. I read that too quickly it seems and called Microsoft Store (as you know they act as a middleman and call your local store for you to inquire on your behalf). I told him I received an email that my 950XL pre-order was ready for pick up and wanted to confirm this before heading over. He put me on hold for about 2 minutes then came back on saying that I'm good to go and can pick up my item. After hanging up I realized the email is essentially telling me I can purchase it online. Not that it's my pre-order ready to be picked up. But yet he confirmed I can actually pick it up.

    I'm sceptical but will try my luck anyway on my way home.

    Now I'm getting uneasy, the West Edmonton mall store still claims they never received the phones yet.

    Run there and say you got a call from MS saying that it's ready for pick-up, see what happens and let us know.... Relax the worst they can say is it's not in till tomorrow

    Yeah it's not like I'm going out of my way to pass by them tonight but I'm pretty certain it was a mistake and they'll have them in tomorrow like everyone else.

    That's awesome news! I've pre-ordered at the MS Store in Vancouver so I'll give them a visit tomorrow. I was there yesterday and they were thinking it would be available on Friday.

    So it appears it may be my lucky day. My buddy over at my local store actually texted me saying what if he told me I can get a 950XL a day before launch. (this confirms tomorrow is when they are officially selling them in store). I said that would make my day. He said he "got the green light from Seattle" so if he can work his charm with inventory and convince them he'll sell me one tonight. Not really sure what any of that means but if it works I'll be very happy.

    A required security check has delayed delivery. / Your delivery has been rescheduled for the next business day.

    If it's coming from the US then it's probably getting cleared through customs

    That's one thing I hate about shipping. I'm never home during the day so I miss all my deliveries and end up having to play games with the courier on trying to get things re-routed.

    But on a separate note I've confirmed some good news and bad news for us Canadians hoping to get our 950's this week. Bad news is word has it that there's a major problem with Canadian shipments right now and it has to do with customs specifically. Stores like Yorkdale (Toronto) are going to be directly affected by this as well as some others and as a result there may be some stores that won't get their shipments for launch tomorrow.. or even Friday. Meaning that some may end up waiting till next week to pick theirs up. Ouch.

    The good news? I get to officially pick up mine up in an hour lol. Sorry to those that don't get theirs tomorrow, I feel for you trust me.
