Default The "I just ordered an M8 but I'm impatient and want to post about it" thread

For anyone in that wonderful state of limbo known as "waiting," this is your thread. Feel free to periodically give updates on your order statuses and when you receive the device so others may go off of that information. I'll just go ahead and start it off.

The entire point of this thread is to exaggerate the woes of waiting for something to be shipped. These are on every devices' forum when they're released. Obviously "limbo" is complete and total hyperbole.

I ordered a dev edition pretty close to launch time...chose overnight shipping. Called HTC for eta and they said it is on backorder until 4/3 but my status online says I'll get it 3/26. Well, today's 3/26 and now says estimate delivery 3/27. Weird..

I heard from another person who ordered around same time and the same model that HTC will ship starting Thursday (tomorrow) based on time of order.

Guess we'll see... fingers crossed!

Yeah, it's 11 PM here and I haven't gotten a shipping notification for my Dev Edition. I seriously doubt I'll actually get it tomorrow, but one can hope.

My order didn't ship yesterday, which doesn't surprise me at all. The estimated shipping and delivery dates have now changed:

Estimated Shipping Date: March 27, 2014
Estimated Delivery Date: March 28, 2014

Let's hope they're not kidding this time.
