So i ordered a Nexus 5 on the 20th of January. Google promptly shipped it out. I was supposed to receive it on the 24th of January, the tracker showed Out for delivery by today (Coming out of Concord, ON). I waited all day at home, no package. I called UPS to find out whats going on, the rep informed me that the package will be delivered on Monday January 27th, I would receive an "assurance" call on January 27 from UPS to assure me that my package will be delivered that day, I did not get that assurance call. On Monday, the tracker showed the same thing Out for delivery (Coming out of Concord, ON), the entire day passes, and still no package.

If UPS had lost my package they should inform me, they have all my information on hand, but they never bothered to do so. OK, so I call UPS and explain the situation to the customer service rep, who informs that they don't know where my package is, last known location was Concord ON on January 24th and to get my shipper to open a lost package investigation with UPS.

At this point, I called Google to inform them of the situation who proceeded with opening an "investigation" with UPS to figure out where my package is. I was given 2 options from Google
(1) one is to open an investigation to figure out where my Nexus 5
(2) cancel my order and re-order with Google (which I can't do because the Nexus 5 16GB model is out of stock on their website)

tl;dr : UPS lost/stole my Nexus 5. The last known location is Concord, ON. They do not know where my package is beyond that.

While that does suck, Google has SUPERB customer service and you have nothing to worry about; except a slightly longer wait than you might have desired. UPS also is usually really good, so if a theft/loss did occur on their part, I'm sure they'll take care of you as well.

Yes I did. Just have to wait for them to investigate and I'll reorder.

... I'm in exactly, and I mean exactly the same boat. My Nexus was supposed to be delivered on the 28th. It made it to Concord Ontario no problem then sat there.
The tracking said it was on the truck and would be delivered today, the 29th. That was in the morning. It's now after 9pm and tracking still says the same... I'm worried now.

Had this happen with USPS many times with ordering stuff online. The tracking will say "delivered" however was not in my mailbox. I eventually get my package however one time I bought g2x from eBay gave em my old shipping address by mistake. As my old address was default by paypal. Called USPS and they said they personally held my package. And that it was being sent to out to me. Well that never happened and in hindsite glad I didn't get that phone as it turns out that was a POS phone lol. Still sucked to pay $150 and nothing usps or eBay/paypal could do for me except say sorry. Of course the seller didn't insure my package
