I just got off chat with a CSR. They stated that they were trying to get all orders placed before Feb 28 shipped out before March 8. So I guess we'll know by tomorrow.
They told me same thing. People who ordered before feb 28 are supposed to get their phones this week. The rest will be next week.

If the phone I ordered had no dual SIM, I'm not taking it. I was thinking all S10 models have a hybrid SIM/SD card tray, where you either insert a second SIM or an SD card!

Are they offering a Dual SIM version?

Look for a Dual SIM, here you go.

Pda plaza takes upwards of a month to ship and they import them from China.
I like the Samsung exynos chip as it typically gives you longer battery life in day to day usage, however the chipset is missing couple LTE bands for north America esp the one for freedom mobile as well as one for Telus/bell/Rogers high speed lte. I'll have to double check to see which bands it's missing and update it here
Also no Samsung pay, I use it often from payment to club cards
One major issue no warranty and even if you have a credit card that doubles warranty it won't cover it as these are considered "grey" market phones.

I preordered with Rogers on Feb 21 but like I posted earlier, I'm on position 31 and as of today, my status is still "open"...

Never understood what people see in these atrociously priced phones. Like someone said, as expensive as 1 month's rent. 99.9% of use cases are super well covered by the average $150-200 devices like the Moto X4 or the Moto G. What do people do extra with a $1000+ phone that they will anyway upgrade in a year or two (like the rest of us $200-phone users)? Feel free to "downvote" this comment, but smartphone pricing is getting way out of hand while giving only incremental/marginal "upgrades" in return. Sometimes just pure gimmicks (I'm looking at you, you silly folding screen).

People value different things. It's like do people only buy corollas since they do the same thing that BMWs and Audis do?

Agreed. My comment's intent is in no way to judge anyone :) To each their own.

Has anyone been through the pickup process for pre-orders in the past? How bad will the lineups be tomorrow?

If you ordered from the Samsung store you have to set an appointment to pick it up, so I don't think it'll be that bad

I did it at the SES at Eatons last year for the S9+, it's fairly quick and painless. last year there weren't even any time slots. this year i was given a 9-10am time slot, told them I definitely can't make it that time and need to schedule it for lunch time or after 5pm, and they said it's fine and doesn't matter lol

When I pre-ordered mine in store the rep said they're booking appointments so it's a bit more civil than in the past. He said with an appointment you'll be able to join a shorter line than if you don't. The last pre-order pickup appointment at Sherway is 8-9pm, considering they close at 9pm it can't be that long of a wait...right...?

So it's weird that when I choose the Samsung S10E, I am only getting a pre-order bonus of $100 instead of $200 ?

After trade-in of $110 and bonus of $200, I pay for the S10 at $949.99
After trade-in of $110 and bonus of $100, I pay for the S10E at $809.99

Isn't getting the S10 more worth it than since I only get $100 off with the S10E or is there something wrong I am doing? Thanks guys.. it's the last day to pre-order today and I might go down to the Metrotown Van location to check out both phones if the S10 is too big for me.
Also does anyone get the Samsung Care+ Protection Plan? I never actually got it before on my Samsung phones S7E and S3 and both worked fine without it till today.
