Or refuse the delivery (I'm not even sure if you can do that in the UK) and it will eventually be refunded.

This is turning into a huge headache.
I ordered on the 27th, but afterwards I noticed my address was slightly wrong and so about 20 minutes after ordering I sent an email via google wallet asking them to change it.

Jump forward 12 days to the 9th and I gave up waiting for a response... I called them and they told me not only could they not alter the delivery address, they couldn't cancel it either. Which is funny, because other people's orders from that day didn't ship for more than a week after that. Anyway, the guy said he would escalate it and have someone 'intercept' the package. I got the confirmation of cancelation email about 2-3 hours later.

That's why I wouldn't advise anyone to email them.

Confused "Your order on Google Play has shipped."

Received my shipping notification at 5pm UK time. Order also updates as shipped on Google Wallet. Ordered a 16GB on 2nd July.

However, the TNT consignment number given points to a package that was delivered somewhere on the 10th of April!

Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

My "carbon fibre" white G-Hub case arrived today, just to mock me.....

Tracking numbers are often reused. Sure you'll be fine, and it'll be updated soon!

YES! Shipping email recieved, tracking number says it's 'in transit' for delivery today.

Looks like Google Play, Computer 2000 and TNT did some logistics planning over the weekend. I think They've pulled it off.

Ordered 4th July. Changed delivery address 2 minutes later. Did repeat request to change shortly later. Spoke to them on 21st to cancel order and also confirmed address.

Got email confirmation this morning that it's been dispatched, despite cancellation, to wrong address.

Google - stick to what you are good at!!! Why don't the creators of GMAIL read their email?

Ordered on the 9th, got the email last night and it arrived at 10am today. They delivered to a neighbour and didn't leave a note, apparently.. Had to figure it out from the surname given with the signature.

I won't be able to play with it until much later though, I'm going to see Batman.

mine arrived. It's superb. Thankfully none of the reported problems. And in the end, it really was within the 2-4 weeks as quoted by Google.

Thanks for all the support. It's been emotional.

I ordered from Currys last Friday and was told on Monday morning (yesterday) by the Help Desk that there was no way it would arrive before mid-August.

In the evening I received a tracking email to say it was in transit and had arrived in York, this evening its at Gatwick so hopefully it will reach me on the South Coast tomorrow morning.

I don't have a smart phone and have a powerful desktop PC only - wondering how I 'll get on with this Android thingy - looks great on paper

Looks like a great number of people in the UK have received their Nexus 7 today.

Officially graduating to the "I just got my Nexus 7" thread....
