I think all the invites are only for 64GB right now. I can't remember if I was allowed to choose when ordering not like anyone would get 16GB though I do love that white cover.

I just got mine in Vancouver. Ordered on July 31st, shipped Aug 1st, and arrived on Aug 5th. Missed delivery so I just picked it up yesteday. Shipping to Canada only allowed express shipping option by DHL and that added $27.99USD on top of the $350USD. Exchange rate at 1.118 on my credit card ended up charging me $422.97CAD. Duties and taxes was $54.03CAD which you have to pay on delivery or you can pay online after it comes out of customs and before it gets to you. I could have shipped it to Point Roberts or Blaine to avoid the taxes and customs fees and US shipping only has regular shipping option for $14.99USD. I didn't have time to go down on a weekend to pick it up so I didn't bother.

Thanks man! I am about to buy an invite off of someone in Vancouver for $30. I've got a mailbox over in Blaine that I will probably just use. Not worth those extra charges to get it shipped to me

Final price after duties and delivery and exchange rate was $490. Not such a great deal after all.

Why is it not a great deal? I spent $477 total on this phone and if I bought an unlocked HTC m8 it would have been $700+$84 tax or the S5 at 730+$88 tax. I saved over $300 already. If you sign up for a 2 year contract with the big 3 in Canada, they'll give you an S5 for $100, but lock you into a 80/month plan.

That's right guys. I also ended up paying $490 CAD here in Winnipeg. This phone is such a great deal for us Canadians. 13% Tax here really hurts local buyers.
Current phones:
  • OnePlus One on Telus Canada (Local)
  • Sony Ericsson W810i on Globe Telecom Philippines (Roaming)
Old phones: Nokia 6510, Sony Ericsson K750i, Nokia 1280, Samsung Galaxy S III SGH-I747M, Samsung Galaxy Note II GT-N7100

Nice, I was in a hurry to get it and wouldn't be able to go down for 2 weeks so I ate the extra cost.
