    Since there seems to be little advert for the 710 and 800 and the infinite amount of ignorant sales rep, anyone interested in setting up a date and go stand infront of a couple Rogers/Telus store like a mob and show off how the os works to the sale rep/customers? :P

    (something ms should do...)

    Smoked by Windows Phone!

    I'd love to hear from some Telus and Rogers reps to find out if they're getting any PK at all on the new phones.

    all the reps i work with ( 100+ ) ether hate WP or AND know NOTHING about it... just yesterday one of my reps said to me * it doesn't even have copy -past *,.. i instantly face palmed.

    mind you bell doesn't sale any more WP but still..

    we could go in front of a bell and make clients go to rogers and telus , maybe then bell would wake up./

    Maybe Bell carriers are all down on it im sure Rogers and Telus carriers know whats up. Im gonna peep my local Rogers store and see.

    In regards to Bell though it was funny I e-mailed my corporate rep and told him that I plan on using Windows Phones company wide and hes like "your the first person to ever ask me that question" (not suprissed) he told me "what makes you want a Windows Phone over iPhone and Android" I listed all the reasons and it defiently changed his mind on the platform.

    I bought my phone from Rogers online simply because I didn't want to struggle with a rep possibly telling me to buy an Android phone instead.
    I have yet to see any sort of promotion for WP7 in Canada from anyone. It's really sad.

    I find most of the reps in Canada where I am aren't really bashing WP7 they just aren't really knowledgable about it. I haven't found them steering me clear of them but they aren't doing WP7 any favours.

    Oh and by the way, the 710 will apparently be coming with an Android version shortly.

    ...according to Rogers peeps...

    Has anyone else noticed that you can no longer order the 710 directly off of Rogers' website?

    If my plan wasn't so amazing I'd ditch Bell the second the 800 comes out... And tell them EXACTLY why I was leaving. At $15/month more for the closest TELUS plan, I could buy one outright and use it on Bell without feeling guilty spending so much. Or the 900 from Rogers, for that matter...

    I hope that's not my fault... I emailed them asking about the in store unlocking fee and explained I would be purchasing outright and using it on Bell... :P

    I finally saw a Rogers Lumia 710 ad today. It was in the free Metro (Toronto) newspaper that they give out on the subway. It was a full page add that was only about the Lumia 710 and WP7, so that was nice to see.

    It's still listed at $254 on the website. I would talk to the manager and threaten to phone corporate on them.

    Wow, really glad I finally pulled the trigger and picked one up this week. Loving it so far. And the price was right to carry me over until my subsidized upgrade next year.

    I asked at my Telus store in West Edmonton Mall. Apparently the Nokia 800 is coming out in a few weeks. The guy I talked to liked what he saw. He had good things to say about the phone AND the OS. Unusual...

    OK, just to muddy the waters a bit, the Rogers Video Store near Quadra and Hillside in Victoria has the Lumia 710 listed for only $229!
