Are You Lining Up for iPad 2? Coordinate Meetups Here

by on March 22nd, 2011

If you missed it–Apple officially announced iPad 2 launch times for Canada today:

MARKHAM, Ontario—March 22, 2011—Apple® today announced that iPad® 2, the second-generation of its third post-PC device, will go on sale in 25 additional countries this Friday, March 25. iPad 2 will be available at Apple retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers at 5 p.m. local time, and online through the Apple Store® (www.apple.ca) beginning at 1 a.m PDT

Are you planning to wait in line for an iPad 2? Use this post to coordinate with fellow iPad enthusiasts on where and when to meet up. Lining up overnight for an Apple product launch, as absurd as it may seem, is actually a lot of fun. I met so many great people during last year’s iPhone 4 launch.

This post will be a sticky leading up to Friday, so we can all coordinate stock, line ups and provide updates.

Things to Bring If You’re Waiting in Line:

  • Blanket, jacket, gloves, toque, ear warmers
  • Drinks, snacks
  • Foldable beach chair
  • An iPhone or iPad to keep yourself occupied

So let us know the following:

Where are you lining up?

When?

  • Peter Nguyen

    Best buy scarborough town centre. I’ll be there midnight

  • Ryan

    I will be lining up at Southgate mall in Edmonton probably between 4 and 5 am on Friday morning. Hope to see some other people there!

  • Malee_ca

    Eaton Centre at 8am I think :) . Do you guys think that is too late?

  • Brian L

    I was thinking hitting southgate (edmonton). Are you going to the north end doors by the Safeway? I was also thinking of 5am.

  • http://twitter.com/themanofsilver Jason Silverman

    Anyone lining up in Calgary? I’m just visiting for a long weekend and trying to figure out when and where to head.

  • Zoltan Rano

    Is 7am too late or to early? Fairview mall.

  • Paulo

    Aurora Best Buy or Newmarket Apple Store. Which do you think I have a better chance of getting a white iPad at?

    2:30 as soon as school finihses. But I’m going to try and get out of school to go earlier!

    If I can go earlier than I’ll probably line up as soon as I wake up so around 10-12 am ish! :)

    I hope to see some other people there!

  • Ryan

    I was planning on lining up by the outside doors right close to the Apple store. I think that’s where safeway is? Where the old food court used to be. As soon as you walk in it’s Coles on your left, Apple store on your right. Is that normally where people line up? The mall was already open when I lined up for my iPhone 4 last summer.

  • Paulo

    I don’t think so. I think that 5 hours ahead should be good if your not worried about being one of the first ones to get an iPad 2.

  • VCapplefan

    Anyone know what time to line up in the vancouver oakride location on fri? Is 10am too late?

  • Solomon

    I live in Halifax and we don’t have apple retail store.

    I will start lining up at Best Buy Dartmouth at 1 in the morning.

    Good luck guys!

  • Paulo

    I’ll probably be going at about 10am to my local store.

  • Malee_ca

    Thanks Paulo!

  • Brian L

    The doors were open @ 5AM for the iPhone release? Yeah those were the doors I was thinking of. It’d be good if we were allowed to wait inside! I’m going to contact Southgate to see what time they are going to open the doors @. Bring a thermarest and sleep there!

  • Mohammed

    I’ll Order online and will head to wal mart hoping that they will carry it on Friday

  • Fy1990216

    7am-5pm… 10 hrs is long for me…
    Btw… I’m planning to line up in fairwell mall too… If u r saying Toronto, eaton centre is too intense for me :p

  • Zoltan Rano

    What time woud you suggest?

  • Zoltan Rano

    For Fairview?

  • Ryan

    I don’t know when they opened the doors in the summer I didn’t go until 1pm to get my iPhone 4 (had to work, thankfully they still had stock). From what i’ve read about other locations it sounds like mall security usually lets people in early so they can line up inside. Defiantly bring a small folding chair. 12 hours is going to be a while. Looking forward to it!

  • Brigden

    I’ll be lining up at the Apple Store downtown Vancouver if anyone else is planning on going. I haven’t decided what time I plan to go yet, but it will probably be in the morning sometime.

  • Janna

    The doors at southgate by the apple store were open all night for the iPhone 4 release. Not sure if that will be the same for the iPad 2. They let senior citizens walk around the mall to exercise in the morning starting at usually 6:30 am. I used to work out Southgate mall.

  • Ryan

    Just phoned Southgate the lady told me they open the doors to the Mall at 7am so that’s probably when we will be allowed in. 2 hours outside shouldn’t be too bad. Hope it doesn’t snow!

  • Fy1990216

    I dont know really… But I guess 5 hours ahead should be good enough if u r not urgent to be those head ones…beside if u have extra time, u can definitly go early, just to make sure, or u can even help pay tousled part of ur iPad by selling ur spot~

  • Fy1990216

  • Zoltan Rano

    I’ll try for 7 am but we’ll see. Thanks!!

  • Kris

    I’ll be interested to see where SouthGate allows people to line up. Remember, during the original iPad and iPhone 4 launches Restoration Hardware wasn’t open. So there was lots of room to lineup outside the Apple Store. Now with Restoration Hardware open, I’m sure they won’t want people blocking the store. We’ll see what happens.

  • Marc

    Anyone waiting in line in Montreal or Quebec city? / Quelqu’un a l’intention d’attendre à Montréal ou Québec?

  • Jeanphilippe D

    We have a bunch of no-lifers here.
    Sorry but this is the harsh truth

  • audiotek

    Moi, à Montréal.. Vers 13 ou 14 heures..
    Attendre 5 heures et plus, c’est complètement ridicule.

  • kabsalsa

    I am going to square one in Mississauga but can’t decide on a time. 5 am seems too early especially without a buddy for breaks, etc. Maybe 9 am?? Any suggestions from anyone who has stood in a line there in the past? I know for the iPhone 4 launch, that was in the AM, I talked to someone who arrived at 10 am on the launch day and still got a phone. Wonder what type of inventory they will have?

  • aryarovira

    I will be there. At the downtown apple store around 1 pm

  • Ryan

    Hey we all have our vices. All of us here happen to love Apple devices, there are a lot worse things to be obsessed about. Don’t tear us down simply because you don’t feel how we do.

  • Stev0fcb

    I’ll be heading in to Market Mall in Calgary. Im going to try and be there for about 12:30 – 1:00 P.M. A few hours before they open the doors, I know that there is going to be a long line but im hoping to get one

  • Brian L

    By no means am I the biggest Apple fan. I have a PC @ home and I run Android phone. I’m doing it just to say that I have done it. I do think Apple makes an excellent product, and that’s why I’m getting a couple iPads. Its a cultural phenomenon and want to experience it. Good or bad…

  • Anonymous

    i’m trying to figure out if it would be better to try best buy..? i guess they probably won’t have many… not sure what time i should go. we need some twitter hashtags for this.

  • Adrian_95

    I’ll be there :D But the question is, what time should we line up??

  • Durwinbrennan1

    I’m hitting Best Buy a well but I have to work until noon Friday. Hoping the line isn’t too long. We should start a petition to get Apple to build a store for the east coast of Canada. @Durwin

  • Fy1990216

    Yep…typo…

  • Anonymous

    Moi je serai au FutureShop des Galeries de la Capitale a Québec

  • manface1

    Anyone going to line up at Future Shop/Best Buy in Edmonton?

  • VCapplefan

    Hey Brigden, I live in Vancouver too but was prob thinking of going to Oakridge cntr! I keep hearing if u go around 10ish we all should be fine!

  • Marc

    Je crois plutôt aller au Apple Store de la place Ste-Foy.. J’ai peur que FutureShop n’en ait pas autant en stock qu’au Apple Store directement.

  • Anonymous

    Going to line up probably about 6 to 7am at the Apple Store at the Rideau Center in Ottawa (or as soon as the mall opens if that’s not possible). Anyone interested?

  • Tiffanywood

    Anyone going to yorkdale fri?? I am thinking between 10-12 would be good… Its going to be a long lonely day for me as all my friends have to work…. Wish I had someone to camp out with :(

  • James

    I have meetings until 1pm but I would gladly buy you lunch or even your smart cover if I could join you in line at 1!

  • Anonymous

    C’est peux-etre ridicule mais au moins on aura un iPad 2 et sa en aurais valu la peine… Attendre 4-5 semaines pour un iPad sa c’est ridicule!! ;)

    I don’t think they’ll accept to build an Apple Store (Investing < 1 million$) for a rural area, where the population is dispersed to more than 20km… ;) It wouldn't be worth it…

    In my bedroom, in Markham Ontario ready to buy at 1AM!
    im there with you guys in spirit :)

  • Anonymous

    Montreal Fairview Pointe-Claire Apple Store or Saint-Catherines Street Apple Store? And at what time, should I stand in line?

  • Anonymous

    I can handle lunch for a place in line… just be prepared for any dirty looks when you get in line with me. :)

  • neo64

    i am also going to line up at Rideau! does the mall close overnight? i was thinking of lining up at 6am too!

  • Anonymous

    It may… I don’t know to be honest, last time I lined up for an Apple product was the 3G and that was at the Rogers store instead. I may call tomorrow to fine out.

  • Colin

    Anyone going to line up at Future Shop or Best Buy in Hamilton?

  • Darrinbean

    Based on my experience on March 11 at the Alderwood Store in North Seattle I was in the lineup at 1 and easily got one but by about 3:30 the lineup became huge.

    And if you’re ordering online set your alarm and order right at 1 am

  • krish

    Hey Brigden I’ll be lining up at the apple store dt Vancouver as well. I was thinking maybe sometime around 5am or 6 am what do you think?

  • KRISH

    Anyone going to be at the Apple Store dt Vancouver around 5am or 6am?

  • Saintboniface73

    Anyone heading to the Apple store in Winnipeg?? I am trying to figure out when I should head there?

  • Peter

    Ok I lined up for the iPhone 4 5 hours in advance and I could have gotten away with lining up even 3 hours in advance.

    So I’m wondering why people are being so silly as to plan to line up as much as TEN hours in advance of this launch. That’s a little much, don’t you think????

  • Anonymous

    At future shop in Abbotsford BC

    Anyone joining me at Upper Canada Mall when the mall entrances open early in the morning???

    I will be one of the first ones there…. I am buying only ONE, so any iPadincanada readers want to meet up with me and get the second one I might help out… if I don’t plan on selling my spot xD

  • Jeff

    Anyone know what the shipping cost and shipping time is if you order online?
    Thanks

  • bosoxfanx

    acutally, should I go to Yorkdale or Fairview? does any of these malls have free wifi? xD

  • Jeff

    Ajax Best Buy Store around 1:00PM and if the line is crazy, online.

  • Bacha

    Dude he means he is going to order online.

  • Brigden

    Don’t bother with Best Buy. Unless you’re the first person, your options will be slim. The stock will be limited enough as it is, so other stores like Best Buy and Futureshop will get an even smaller number than before. If you really want one, head to the Apple Store.

    I’m thinking of going to the Apple Store downtown Vancouver around 6am, but I haven’t decided yet. I don’t want to wait in line for 12 hours particularly, so I may look online to see what other people are saying before that. My work is located in TD Tower so I can just hang out there if the line hasn’t started.

    If people do want to meet up, figure out a time and we can make it work. Makes it easier so you can go for bathroom breaks etc.

  • Sean

    I’m buying online in my PJs! I am assuming 1am means 4am EST. I will have my mouse ready to hit refresh at 3:50am!

  • Brigden

    I could do 6am, but it depends on what everyone else starts saying. Thats 12 hours in line, which I think is a little much, but if others plan to go there that early, I will too.

  • bosoxfanx

    wait I am stupid…. Apple Store has free wifi right xD

  • James

    Awesome! you can reach me at jrhayes5 at gmail dot com

  • Peter

    I just checked out the shipping times when people in the US bought the iPad at the 1 AM launch time…people started getting shipping times of 3-5 business days (after processing by Apple, so let’s say 5-7 total).

  • Minicoopernuts

    Toronto Eaton Center: I’m thinking 5am might be the only way to be guaranteed one, but it’s hard to say with all this ridiculous hype. If it’s empty, I go for breakfast, if it’s busy…I’ll at least be there and hopefully still be home for dinner.

  • Lebron

    Last year I went to the apple store in Ottawa at 1pm after the 8am launch, there was no line and they still had hundreds of iPads. Why are people planning to wait for 10 hours? I’m going to go around 6pm or 7pm on Friday to get mine.

  • timdog

    I think I will heading to Market Mall also, a little bit more geeky in wanting to be there in the morning.

  • Paulo

    Shipping is FREE! :)

  • Paulo

    Hey there, I will be going there too most likely! I would love to meet up with you and wait out.

  • Paulo

    Nope.

  • Guy

    Anyone think that if I’m first in line at an Apple store I could sell my spot? :P

  • Brigden

    You do have a point, but no one can be certain as to how much stock each store will have. Some people like myself are just big enough fans that we want to ensure that we get it on day one. Some places you’ll have no issue walking into a store and grabbing one, but at other stores it might be a few hundred people waiting in line. With the stock issues as they are, if you don’t get one on launch day, chances are you’ll have a hard time finding one for a while.

  • Peter

    Easy. Because they are stupid.

  • Jeff

    Thanks Guy!

    I’m lining up at Yorkdale by 10am with a friend. We’re bringing foldable stools, food, drink, snacks, and movies on my iPad. Might set my alarm thought for 4am EST (1am PDT) just to order online first to ensure we get the model we want. If I do get one in store, I can either return the online one when it arrives or sell it if there is still a shortage in Canada.

    Question for the others who have done apple store launch day lineups before… How nice are people in line if say you have to go to the washroom or want to grab food from the food court? Do they let you back in or do they generally shun you from re-entry? Luckily I’ll be lining up with a friend, just curious how things went down in Buffalo for the iPad2 launch on March 11.

  • Stojkovic

    Hmmmm…. I was planning on going there before work… say 6am’ish…

  • http://twitter.com/mtlscream Steve Belisle

    The trick is to be with other people… so you can do round :) waiting all of you together… and once in a while, one go to eat and get back etc…. Anyway that’s what i did for the iPhone 4 and will do the same for iPad 2.

  • Sam

    racist much?

  • Anonymous

    I was thinking of earlier if it was an 8am launch, but I don’t have the strength for that considering it’s a 5pm launch. All the power to you, 6am I guarantee you will be one of the first ones in line. I say anytime before noon you should be able to get the model you want, just you won’t be first in line. I’m basing this on what I read from the Walden Galleria iPad 2 launch (people posted on RFD)

    Ya I’ll be with a friend so we should be good. Hopefully we can make friends with our neighbors in line. I have a friend who might meet up with me if he can get off work before 5pm, but I doubt people would allow him to enter the queue with me, eh?

    I think you are right. Maybe even later and take my chances.

    Going to be there 7am as well since thats when doors open. First time at a lunch so dont know what to expect

  • KRISH

    Hey you are right it is too early but at the sametime the line for iphone 4 also started much before than 12 hours so I am just thinking that going early and waiting is better than going later and possibly not getting one. Do you think that oakridge store will be better to line up than pacific than i can join you at a confirmed time at oakridge?

  • Andy H

    is anyone in the Richmond Hill area? i may go to best buy at around 3pm.

    Funny story: best buy knows nothing at all…After seeing on their website that iPad 2 goes live and sells at 5 on friday, i call in to see their process of selling them, as the store will already be open. I call and the guys like “yeah we dont know anything about that. So im like..well, your website says your selling them at 5..hes like yeah we dont know about that here. so i basically say “you need to talk to your manager. good bye” :P

    anywho, is anyone going to best buy at this time? Or do you think stores may have them saturday morning?

  • Anonymous

    1AM PST = 4AM EST

  • Lareina

    Yeah, it’s hard to tell where the best place to get one would be… at least at the Apple Stores we’d be indoors if it’s snowing… lol

    close to the movie theater…2nd floor? the one besides Shopper drug mart or the one besides dry cleaner/post office? thanks!

  • Kenny

    A staffe member at the Sherway Gardens Apple Store told me the following a few weeks ago/
    In the past the lines has started prior to the mall opening at door 4. At some point the Apple store staff escort the folks in line to the front of the Applestore and have the folks form a line in the middle of the hallway as not to obstruck any store. The line forms and then heads east away from the door.

    When I thought the sale time was 8:00 AM I was planning to arrive around 6:00 AM, with the sale time 17h00 I;m not sure what to do..

    Gary woulds you like us to send in photos of the lines we are stuck in are in to you?

  • Kris

    Both malls in Edmonton allowed people to stay overnight inside. No one had to wait outside. Whether they do the same this time around is unknown. But I do know there are more than a few people planning to show up at the Apple stores at closing Thursday night and start waiting. So that means they’d be lining up at 9pm.

  • linds

    anyone in kingston trying to get one? hoping best buy has enough to supply the locals + students, have no clue what to do on friday if they dont have enough

  • Kobe

    Sure I can meet you at 6 am at Oakridge. My email is kpvipani@gmail.com that is how we can be in touch I guess maybe we can exchange numbers once we have each others email confirmed. Just send me an email confirming its you and i can give u my number.
    thanks

  • iris

    I wouldn’t bet on going to a Future Shop. Last I heard, they had pulled all the stuff off their website. i don’t know if they will be still getting it or if Best Buy took all their inventory for their own stores.

  • VCapplefan

    Hey Reianz and Kobe, If u guys go to Oakridge I mite come. 6am? Is that too early? what have u guys heard about wen people are goin to be lining up. I def. want to beat the masses of people!
    let me know

  • VCapplefan

    Hey whats up Kobe it honestly doesnt matter which store u go to its going to be a crazy day! Lets see how the next two days go with all the chatter, and then we will decide thurs! But u could be very right, earlier mite be better. But 6am I dont know. I almost wanna drive down there around that time and see if its alrdy crazy. But im thinking that as long as we are under the 400 person count we should be fine. I def dont want to go DT cause parking sux! and its the Flagship store. we will chat about it

  • Ryan

    That would be great if the mall was open and we could line up inside right away. I really don’t think I’m committed enough to wait 20 hours in line though, power to those who will. I’ll be there early Friday morning, ready for a long day.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_H4RCDZAYLJGQO2QJUTKEGGYUTA Brent

    Carrefour Laval opens its doors at 7am. I think stores open at 10, and apparently Apple won’t start selling ipad 2 until 5pm… so take your time ;) I don’t feel like waiting outside (apple downtown), so I’m going to try my luck at Fairview pt-claire apple

  • Kobe

    Hey VCapplefan as you saw from my other post I am planning to meet up with Reianz at Oakridge mall for 6am maybe you can come sometime around then. Here is my email ad and we can be in touch this way and we can also exchange phone numbers kpvipani@gmail.com
    thanks

  • manface1

    Web shows that they are selling at 5pm. Just like apple stores

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    Yes please ;)

  • Reianz

    I don’t think 6am is too early at all, at least my from past experience from lining up for the iPhone 4 launch in Canada. Also, IMO, it’s better to line up early than waiting for the people ahead of us setting up their iPads inside the store.

  • Brigden

    I’m going to the Pacific Centre Apple Store personally. Probably around 6am, but haven’t decided yet.

    I plan on going to Pacific Centre at 1-2 pm because I’m busy earlier in the day. I hope it won’t get too jam packed.

  • Kris

    I’m thinking around 9am. All the stuff I’ve read about the US release indicated those arriving then for sure got what they wanted. It was those showing up around 2 or later that had problems.
    I’ll be watching the blogs and twitter to see how the lines are going – if it starts to pick up I’ll come earlier.

    Eep – beware of that guys. I was in line in Ottawa for the iPad launch when someone tried that – the crowd REVOLTED and freaked out. Apple store employees and mall security had to come out and mediate. It was alright to to swap out with someone holding your spot, but trying to wedge someone in who’s arriving at 1:00 in front o a bunch who’ve been there for hours is NOT gonna fly!

    What time will you go line up at fairview pointe-claire?

  • Peter

    Are you nuts? 6 am? Really??

    I was at the iPhone 4 launch at Sherway Gardens in Toronto at 4 am. The launch time was 7 am. I was actually quite early in the lineup.

    Good luck to all you whack-jobs that are lining up 10+ hours in advance..I will be strolling up at 1 or 2 pm and laughing at you.

  • Hardy

    I”m probably gonna hit the futureshop in Dartmouth at 10 AM, I just called and they don’t have a clue yet as to how they will manage the lineup…

  • Peterjuice

    Yeah don’t go, they are only getting 20 units! So no one line up at the Eaton Centre. But I’ll be there just in case!

  • Zamrod

    For the iPhone 4 launch, I was there at 5:30 am and I was about 100th in line. I still ended up being there until noon before I got my iPhone due to Roger’s activation system being down. Luckily, if you aren’t getting a 3G version, the line should be moving a little quicker.

    The Apple store opened at 7 am for the launch. There was a lineup outside that went from the doors nearest the Apple store around the corner by the time I showed up at 5:30, but they let us all into the mall at 6 am.

    Once the line was let in, they had us line up in the hallway until the store opened and then only let 3 or 4 people in the store at a time.

    From my experience, I would suggest showing up at Polo Park before 5 am. I haven’t decided what I’m doing yet. I already have an iPad, so whether I get the iPad 2 on release day doesn’t matter so much to me.

  • Mike

    lol, what a douche move, Michael.

    Stop trying to tell people to not go to Eaton Center in the hopes to move people away from that store so you can get one more easily.

    I think that is a very safe time.

  • Paulo

    Haha I’m not crazy enough to go early enough to be first. What time are you going at? I’ll probably be there around 11.

  • Kris

    I expect the shipping times to be exactly the same as it was for the iPhone 4 when it launched in Canada.
    When it did, even if you ordered the minute it went on sale it was 3-4 weeks. Because of the high demand, I can’t see the iPad 2 shipping earlier than 3 weeks.

  • Mike

    Peterjuice is joking. His comment is in jest in regards to the original post that Eaton Center won’t have many…

    The Apple Store at West Edmonton Mall is staying open until midnight this Friday for the iPad 2 launch.
    Do you think this could mean they know they are getting a lot of stock? I’d think they’d sell out well before midnight.

    Hey Numbnuts, I’m walking into the Best Buy at 4:57, and will come out of there at 5:04 with my iPad 2. Who’s the Wanker?

  • Leo

    I’ll likely just start lining-up around 5:00pm, so long as Apple Store staff are taking down names, to do their best with keeping track of the line’s demand on iPad models. Also, assuming they have similar first-day supply and demand, I was able to get an iPad with no problems (~8:00pm) at Pacific Centre, but only the 64B model was left.

  • linds

    would you mind giving me your number or taking mine to msg in the morning? i have a exam at 10 so i cant go early but plan on going right after (1045), if youd let me know what the situation was at 10 that would be great
    if you want, if the open at 10 and say come back at 5 ill hold you down a spot, and if they give vouchers at 5 would you grab 2 vouchers?

  • Gurjiiiii

    Im going to swing by at 8-9am and see how every things going. If a lot of people are waiting then im going to wait and if they aren’t, im going to come back about 3 hours b4 launch……………

    read on twitter today that each store is getting a minimum of two models and around 10 ipads per store. You should be able to get one there but wont have much of a choice.

  • Kurona

    I’m in Waterloo as well, planning to go to futureshop…maybe sometime around 2-3pm or so. I wonder if it’ll be popular there.

  • Kris

    West Edmonton Mall will have the bigger lines. It is the flagship store in Alberta as it was the first. So it usually gets more stock than the others.
    As I posted earlier – the Apple Store at West Edmonton Mall is staying open until midnight on Friday. To me that indicates it knows its getting a rather large shipment of iPad 2′s so its staying open past mall hours to accomodate everyone. OR Apple feels it’ll be helping a lot of people set up their iPad 2 and need the extra time.

  • Reianz

    Are you stupid? We live in Vancouver. Do you know how many Mainland chinese people live in our community? They are more than welcome to buy out our spots first in line for $500+.

    I was at the iPhone 4 launch as well at Oakridge, and I ended up waiting in line for 12hrs. There was 100+ people ahead of me when I got there at midnight. You must live in a shitty desolated area.

  • Reianz

    Sorry VCapplefan, my brain must’ve been not functioning properly. The closest entrance by the Apple store is actually the side entrance where everybody else lines up. It’s the one near the washrooms.

  • Bodda

    I was thinking of showing up around 2:30PM at Southgate Edmonton because of school. Will I have problems picking up an iPad?

  • Ryan

    That may be a bit late if you want a specific model/color. Who knows how many will be in line. Defiantly check forums and twitter to see how it’s going and if the line is getting long you can always cut your last class or 2. It’s worth it.

  • Mario_169

    hey dude, i’ll be going to square one as well… first time i’ll we waiting for a long time in line… I was planning on going at 7-8AM.. I hope thats a good time..

  • Shab677

    I will also be going to Ajax Best-Buy and was planning on lining up at 5 a.m but I think that may be too early.

  • CRAIGS

    12 hours seems pretty crazy. You think ajax will be that crazy!!!

  • Anonymous

    So does that mean you’ll be able to take bathroom breaks without worrying about losing your spot?

  • Glitch1989

    I’m lining up at the eatons center. Is it worth Lining up the night before?

  • linds

    @dreameral check out the comments below between us

  • IVik1ng

    I am trying to figure out this one also

  • ld

    Went to Sommerset Collection in Michigan for the US iPad 2 launch, line seemed fairly logn when I arrived at 4:30pm, took me 3hours to get in and out, my friend and I each got one 16gb wifi and one 32gb wifi, only the 3G at&t models were sold out at that time. I’d assume the lines would be crazier here, I’d say 3pm or earlier would be ideal…
    I sold all my iPad 2′s from the US, now I want one for keeps, I want to lineup at Bestbuy here, I’m thinking to go around 3pm (which is probabyl the earliest I am able to go) and try to secure one on apple.ca when that goes live just in case I can’t find one in-store, I wouldn’t mind waiting for one to arrive.

  • Hornet

    iPad 2 backlight bleeding problem is huge !

    As much as I would like to get on on Friday I think it would be foolish. This backlight bleeding problem is huge (makes the iPhone 4 antenna issue seem minimal in retrospect) and I have no desire to lay down almost $1000 for a dud with no fix in sight. Many have exchanged 2 to 3 units and ALL have this problem.

    im will going to bestbuy anjou ( montreal) , friend that work there told me last year there was only five people in line :) still going right after class at 10am lol but i will order one online just in case

  • Matt

    That’s pretty much what I’ll be doing, too. If the shipping is 4-5 weeks, then I’ll probably leave work early and head to the Anjou Best Buy. I think my chances are better there than at a downtown location.

  • Techjedi

    Where are you lined up? My buddy is first in line at the Eaton Centre and he’s outside the door of the Apple Store. The employees just took his picture too. He only got there an hour ago, and you say that you got there 15 hours ago. They also just told him that he’s the first person to officially line up in the GTA and that Apple PR is forwarding his picture to the press. (he wishes he looked more put together and awake, oh well!)

    Just want to make sure you are in the right line!

    ??

  • Vier

    Make friends with the people around you so the can vouch for your leaving and coming back. Also announce your bathroom break like you’re in gradeschool. ;)

  • Vier

    I’m thinking I’ll show up at noon and hope for the best. I don’t think my butt can take sitting on the Rideau Centre floor for more than 5 hours. :P

    I hope they have a line diwn the middle that doesn’t piss off American Apparel this time. We kept having to leave a gap in the line to keep their entrance accessable that people kept trying to jump ahead via. Ottawa Macheads were havin’ none of that sh!t, that’s for sure!

    Having been in a few of these Rideau Apple Store lines has been pretty fun so far, actually. I’m a little looking forward to it! And my husband volunteered to keep me company. ;)

  • Stev0fcb

    I really need to find out an idea of what time people are going to be lining up in Calgary? I live in Canmore, and Im not able to get off of work until 11:00 A.M. and am hoping to make it to Market Mall for 12:30 – 1:00 p.M. any ideas if this is enough time to ensure me getting an iPad 2?

    im hittin up upper canada at 11. i hope i dont end up being 100 spots back. see you all there

    Hi VCapplefan, Kobe and Reianz,

    Mind if I camp out with you guys at Oakridge. It’d be nice to have some company this time round – 10hrs of solitude for iPhone 4 was a little intense. haha.

    Thanks

  • Anonymous

    Yup. Planning on seeing how the lines are in the morning, maybe aim for after noon. Take my MBA and some movies loaded up with iPhone for wifi. If I wake up at 8 or 9 and there’s 100 people in line, though, I’m heading over then.

    Had a good group of random folks for the iPhone 4 launch, hoping to find good people again who will hold my place as needed!

  • Anonymous

    At the iPhone 4 launch people were generally very good. You all have similar interests, chat a bit, etc. I was alone for it, left for food and bathroom several times with no issue when I politely asked those around me, and I extended the same courtesy.

    thx man

  • No

    Lol. This shit is hilarious

  • Mlena095

    I’ll be heading there after class around 12. Hopefully the line won’t be too long by then.

  • DaveyJJ

    I’m hitting Square One an hour before the doors open (6AM for a 7AM open) and then will wait all day. I’m bringing my iPad (games, reading, tweeting), chair, food etc. Security has said they’ve had hundreds of calls re: opening so expect a line. Also, there is no point going tonight unless you like camping outside … they will lock you out.

  • DaveyJJ

    They’re fellow Mac-heads, of course they’re nice! Really, having been in line three times before (twice US, once Canada) the lines are pretty friendly. Make sure to say hi and chat, and most people will hold your place if you dash out for a Timmy’s, especially if you ask if you can bring one back for anyone.

  • DaveyJJ

    8AM would be 9 hours head, right? 8-12 then 12-5PM when they go on sale. Long day, either way. Square One for me. See everyone there.

  • DaveyJJ

    I’ll be there between 6AM and 7AM when the mall doors open. See ya then.

  • Rubi

    i’ll be in pacific too, i’m living just 2 blocks away from there, so i’m still undecided at what time coming downstairs, i thought 7am would be fine, but don’t know which door of the centre will be open first.

    Im also planning on lining up in London. Outpost is closing doors 1hr/ or half hr before launch and reopening at 5. Best Buy said that they have no idea what they are doing. I really dont know when to line up…suggestions?? Ive never lined up for anything.

  • Tatiana

    Can i join too!??
    Coz none of my friends want to line up!!

  • Elayne

    Today Thursday around 3 pm I visited the Best Buy in Richmond Hill ON. I spoke to 3 different folks including one in computers. They all know nothing other than where to line up – outside the front door but they have no idea whether they will give out numbers or … They do not have supply yet. They expect it overnight after the store closes.

    I will go by again when the store opens tomorrow.

    I saw them too. but the BIG question is wouldn’t the mall security kick them out when the mall closes for security reason. I can understand if the Apple store is outside, so this does not make sense.

    I asked, there will be no tickets. The mall opens at either 7-7:30 (can’t remember), the apple employee didn’t think that the line would be inside until later, but given the change of weather I’m sure they will let the line be indoors. I’m thinking of going at 7am.

    does the online ordering start at 1AM EST or 1AM PDT? I feel like no one knows for sure?

  • Kobe

    Hey dude so I called them earlier today and the apple employee told me that when he was outside there was no line. I dont think that people will camp out at Oakridge just like the guys over at Toronto. We shud be good.

  • Fred@as.com

    It’s called a paid day off. Ask your fry cook manager about it, he’ll tell you how successful people live.

  • edward

  • MGS

    I just think that DT and Oakridge will be too busy! Whats ur opinion?

  • Homerjunior

    At Future Shop in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

    It’s a small town (100 000) so our stock will probably be low. Got here early so I know I’ll have one.

    Just me and a friend here. No one yet, it’s 1am just now.

  • MGS

    I also mite meet up with some fans togo to Oakridge But I havent decided if I wanna go at 6am!

  • Bryce

    A bunch of us will be hanging out pretty early at the Rideau Center. Just do a search on this thread for Rideau Center. I will likely be holding a sign saying iPadinCanada.ca Meetup or something (at least until my arm gets tired lol) =)

  • ivan

  • Gtt

    i live in Victoria, Bc we dont have a apple store in town. What would be better FS, Best Buy or one of the smaller apple retailer?

    I hate to admit it, but you are totally right.

    Mine has gotten WORSE since I got it on the 11th.

    I’m sucking it up and will deal with it for a few months, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t ruin the experience, but it sure hampers it. A LOT.

    But is it reason enough not to buy it? No. The iPad 2 is still a terrific device, and I don’t regret it… But man, it sure is a bummer.

  • Trey

    No, in typical fashion they were late. Everything about this whole thing has made me see Apple in a negative light. They had all the time in the world to be ready for this, and they can’t seem to get things right. People lining up and getting nothing, stores refusing to give any information, no structure or reason to anything. Seems they like the idea of chaos.

  • Trey

    I’m not lining up, but I needed to tell you how silly your post is. People have days off, vacation days, shift work (I work nights), and all kinds of ways they can do this. And believe it or not, some people enjoy this stuff. Judge not, lest YE be judged man.

    There are 100 ppl in line right now at 11am. I spoke to security and mall management to voice my complaint and a property manager will get back to me soon. Security guy said “I don’t care if you don’t get your iPads, I have no problems with kicking you out for sitting.” I will tell management don’t you care that over a hundred people will spend easily $1000 each and that next launch we’ll all boycott this mall?

  • Anonymous

    My calls to mall management worked. They brought out chairs for people and me and my friend got the last 2, so that means only about 30 chairs. Everyone else is allowed to sit on the floor but not to bring in outside chairs. Moral of the story is if you are not happy with something, voice your concern and be heard! Not allowing patrons to sit on the floor in the designated lineup area for safety concerns is absurd.

  • DaveyJJ

    OK, the line at Square One isn’t growing that fast anymore but there are, when I last counted, about 200 people here now in line. Apple staff are walking the line and slowly getting us pumped. Apparently, around 2PM there will be some sort of ticket hand out. We’ve already been asked is we have AppleIDs I guess to make sure the whole checkout process is going to be smooth and efficient. Have fun in line.

  • Trey

    Melissa in the future when you find yourself in that situation, be very vocal, and someone with some decency will eventually hear you. If I were in front of you and people told you that you”d lose your spot if you left the line, I would politely inform them that if they failed to let you back in, you would be joining me in FRONT of them. I believe that would take care of it :)

  • Canuck

    Cat wait to get my hands on new ipad 2 but waiting in line for hours and eat snacks and huddle in blanket for my cravings ? no absolutely no.

    Just think for a sec , folks around the world are lining up for water and food. Not just poor african countries . I’m talking about Japan. these folks are way more tech savy then us, one of the most advanced country. If you have enough money to give folks to stand in line then I would suggest donate that 10 bucks and wait for a week to get your ipad 2 . who know you may be standing in a food line like them some day ? Impossible ? think again.

  • Trey

    Roger,

    I was at Ajax BB about 40 minutes ago, and there seemed to be 20-30 people there. But I am not sure if the line went down the west wall, which could mean a lot more people are there. Good luck

    Whether to donate to which organization or not is very personal and off topic. I come here to read about iPads in Canada.

  • Ttt

    any guys in line square one apple store right now?

  • Teacher

    Anyone know the situation around Calgary. I am a teacher and can’t leave my grade 2/3 class unattended.

    Glad you’re thinking about your class! However, it would be interesting if
    you decided to go ‘photocopy’ something for a while. ;)

    Here’s my lineup video from Yorkdale mall 1 hr until iPad2 launch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rc1ruP5XTVM

  • SeanAndernacht

    Hopped in line at futureshop at 3pm in Brampton and got the 16gb wifi white with no problem. And they gave us hot chocolate!
    Hope everyone else had such luck

    Woo Hoo! This is amazing, not only could I still go to work today, but I am now back in line (near the front) awaiting my iPad, and I sold 5 other slots in line to other iPad lovers…AND, I was able to get some homeless people drunk, paid and warm! Unbelievable concept..

  • FS

    FYI FutureShop only allow 1 ipad2 per customer

  • FS

    BTW Vancouver here

  • Trey

    Sorry was away. I would think Whitby was a better location. Big store, smaller town……

  • Jayo6969

    did anyone in the durham region see if they had lots of stock at any locations

  • BangLoboy

    Got to future shop at Richmond hill Ontario at 415pm (pretty large lineup but they did it INSIDE which was kind of them) – managed to pickup the 32gb wifi white! 4 ppl after me and sold out! Maybe random ones available! My wife played with the ipad2 and has decided she likes it so she’s gonna wait till April 22 (or earlier!) as I ordered one online as well

    Awesome device though – like it more than the 1st Gen – good job apple!

  • Peterjuice

    I only had to wait an hour at 5:00 pm to get mine at Carbon Computing in Toronto!

  • Dave in High Park, Toronto

    walked into FutureShop at Keele /St Clair in Toronto at 5pm to do a non-related return. Saw a small line, and thought hey, why not ask. They were handing out tickets, and I got the 2nd last ticket – only choice was white 32GB wifi only iPad. Exactly what I wanted – I was undecided about colour – very happy with the white for a change. Talk about lukcy.

    Guess I will cancel the 32GB black wifi only order I placed at the Apple Canada online store at 4:07 am – literally the minute they started selling them. Even though I was one of the very first online customers, the estimated wait time was 2 to 3 weeks, with estimated delivery right in the middle of my Mexican resort vacation. Can’t have that !

    Hey Gary,

    I had made up an iPadinCanada.ca Meetup sign to meetup with Kai and Brenden. We were also at the Rideau Center, around the corner near the exit from where you were. I’m sorry to say that I didnt see you when I came to look around. I ended up pimping your website on Radio and Television when CFRA, CTV, CBC and the other people with cameras and video cameras came along, a little shameless promo for you! Had tons of fun hanging out with Kai, thanks to everyone who made it great experience!

    Anyone know the situation in MTL??? Need to figure out where to go… THANKS!!

  • http://www.iphoneincanada.ca Gary

    Wow, thanks for that! I’m based out of Vancouver, though! Cheers and enjoy your iPad 2!

  • lillypad

    Anyone know what time lines might start at stores tomorrow morning? Was 20th in line or so at Simply Computing today but no more 64GB WiFi/3G when they got to me with tickets so I left :-(

  • Marku

    Does any one know whether Fairvivew mall Apple store in Toronto selling them Saturday morning again?

    Any one lined up?

  • Ari

    I lined up inside the Victoria Best Buy at around 12:30pm PDT yesterday. The line was inside the store front entrance and they were handing out free bottled drinks. There were about 12 people in front of me at the store.

    I was able to get a 64GB Wifi model.

  • Bryce

    Oh sorry Gary. There was a Gary that was first in line at the Rideau Center but I did not get a chance to meet him. Thought it was you =)

  • Drewgo

    Just back from Pacific Centre Vancovuer….. Got in outside line at 9:40, and was out of the Apple store at 11:40 with my 64 Gig WiFi Black with Green case….
    Walked in the door and cancelled my on line order…..
    Must have been about 100 or more people in line outside, they were handing out White Cards with your item on it, as far as I could tell they had tons of stock, but out of the smaller white ones….
    Good Luck to all…..

  • Jayo6969

    anyone in the GTA know if the Apple stores have enough stock or are they turning people away?

  • Phphreak

    Lined up at Best Buy in Oakville around 3 pm. Walked out at 5:15 pm with the first 32 GB Black Wifi they sold in store.

    Easy as pie.

  • Phphreak

    3 pm Friday, I meant to say.

  • Mikepdoyle

    Is anyone lining up at Square One Sunday morning? I’m thinking of going around 7am.

    Spoke with an employee at the store today and they said that some people lined up today(Saturday) and got an iPad when the store opened.

    He said to call at 10 and ask if they have any in stock. Store opens at 11. He couldnt tell me today if they have any in stock.

  • Mikepdoyle

    So you’re saying lining up for an iPad will have us prepared for food lines one day. That’s not too bad.

  • George

    I ordered iPad 2 online Friday. I just happened to walk by the Apple store in polo park mall in Winnipeg while shopping and saw 5 people in line. I decided to cancel my online order and get me a 16 gb Black wifi. It took all of 10 minutes to do.
    They still have 20 or so of every Black model in stock and a few 64 white ones.
    This was at 11:45 Saturday morning.

  • Aat

    I was about 3rd last at same futureshop. I got last 32gb white wifi. When I got to the front they gave me a 32gb white 3G by mistake, I believe the screwed up and gave you my wifi and mistakenly gave you the option of wifi when they were done! Ironic eh! I know I was the last 32 wifi white and if you were 2nd last I was 3rd last. Anyway they have to swap a new one for me when they restock!

  • Elayne
