I suspect what actually happened was the 3-5 day people like me were supposed to get 1-2 week shipping estimates as both groups seem to be having the same things happen now after a quick flick through of the thread.

Still going to take Google up on the shipping refund they offered me, it was their mistake. I'll be so glad to (hopefully) have a proper phone again next week.

And cheers to smadger for his work over the past few days :thumbup:

Well hopefully mine catches up as I was in the 3 - 5 day haha... I think when I get it I will try and attempt to get a bumper just because it would be awesome, dont fancy paying 25 to have a plastic bumper delivered to me, be great if I could end up with all that but I will settle on the already offered p&p as an OK.

As far as i can tell, my bank doesnt have any pending charges on my account (still shows all funds available)... I'm using my Debit card with HSBC (Enough funds are there!)

You're right, that has to have been what happened. The Play Store said 1-2 weeks, the email said 3-5 days. There was a glitch somewhere. We're simply just part of the 1-2 weekers (who technically aren't due their devices until this week any way).

You know, when I got that order confirmation email I got a bit shifty and thought it was a glitch. It wasn't until I saw other people getting 3-5 day estimates that I stopped holding my breath.

Well, hot damn. I get home late again and look what I see - progress at last! My Play Store is listed as Complete (like it always was, it was never pre-ordered for me (see sig.)) and the auth. charge has been made.

I am excitebike.

So, what's everyone's theory this morning after not receiving shipping emails ?

Seems that normally we are only charged just before shipping.

Possibly the orders are being handled in a more 'manual' way this time to ensure it works.

Could be that shipping emails go out later today, or tomorrow as wet don't normally see them on a Sunday ?

Dan Cobley, 16/12, 07:40:

"Dear all

I know that what you are going through is unacceptable and we are all working through the nights and weekends to resolve this issue. Supplies from the manufacturer are scarce and erratic, and our communication has been flawed. I can offer an unreserved apology for our service and communication failures in this process.

For those that originally received a 3-5 days shipping estimate, your orders are now in process for fulfillment. You can expect an email notification early this week which will include tracking information. Although you will be initially charged in full, you will receive a credit for the shipping charge soon after.
For others that received pre-Christmas shipping estimates, we anticipate processing your orders for fulfillment this week.

I realise that the people who ordered the Nexus 4 so early are among our most committed and loyal users and we are doing all we can to put things right.

Sorry again.

Dan"

My guess would be no action on a Sunday ... I'd hope to see something by close of play Monday ... feel weirdly confident to have it before Christmas, even though the empirical evidence might suggest otherwise...
