    Nope not me I'm hating right now:mad:. I need this ****ing phone! Let me tell you what my MDA does and did this morning. Well normally if I take the phone off the chager after abou 3-4 hrs the phone thinks the battery is dead and reboots for some reason. So what I do is when I get to work I put it on the charger so the phone will stay on. This morning I took the phone off the chager put it on the kitchen counter and went to go brush my teeth the phone shut itself off and was doing that reboot crap. I put it back on the charger the phone boots up and say the battery has 18% juice. I take the battery out of the phone and when I get to work I put the batter back in and the phone now says it has 99% juice. This is the shit I deal with on a regular basis. Now I ride a motorcycle and if for any reason my fiance can't reach me or the call goes straight to v-mail and I'm on my bike she is going to have a heart attack.

    What see that you can do a lookup by rference on the UPS sight. Does it matter what format you use (XXX-XXX-XXXX or XXXXXXXXX). Would T-Mobile ever use FedEx to dhip G1's?

    I believe they are using UPS for the pre-sale units, I don't really know. But lookup the reference in this format XXX-XXX-XXXX

    from the UPS site...

    What events are recorded about shipments?

    Shipment movement information is captured each time a tracking label is scanned in the UPS delivery system. Common scans include the following:

    • Billing Information Received: UPS has received the electronic transmission of shipment details from the shipper. This does not necessarily mean that UPS has taken possession of the shipment
    • Origin: the shipment has been scanned at the origin UPS location
    • Departure: the shipment has left its last recorded location and is on its way to the next UPS facility
    • Arrival: the shipment has arrived at an intermediate sort facility or the destination facility
    • Out for Delivery: the shipment has reached the facility that is responsible for the delivery of the shipment; this is a shipment's last stop before delivery.
    • Delivery: the shipment has been delivered; the date and time of delivery is recorded
    • Exception: any unplanned event that may occur in the shipment delivery lifecycle will be noted and explained

    I used to work at Amazon, so I have some insight as to how this works... here is a common scenario:

    - Package goes through UPS label printer/stamper. The UPS track # is assigned, but does not ping UPS computer system at all.
    - Package is stacked up on the shipping dock in a pallet (for high volume operations obviously)
    - Shipper sends electronic manifest to UPS
    - UPS picks up pallet

    The last two happen in either order, and you don't always get origin scans on pallet fulls. The UPS freight driver is not going to break down a pallet and scan all items. In theory the pallet has it's own id, which is mapped to all the package IDs (via the electronic manifest). So a single pallet scan should trigger entries for all items, but this doesn't happen all the time.

    Sometimes the first scan is when the pallet is broken down at the UPS hub and sent out. So you can go from 'electronic billing received' to 'scanned at UPS hub' with no origin scan.

    The origin scan is most reliable for 1-off shipments from small businesses.

    Another possibility is that Tmobile messed up a bit, and sent manifests like a week before they actually load them into the UPS system.

    I just rechecked my tracking number and it is now showing that UPS has my phone in their possession (it's "In Transit"), that it's coming to me from Louisville Kentucky, and that it should arrive on the 21st.

    How did you get your tracking number?
  20. pestilence

    pestilence Well-Known Member

    You go to and select 'track by reference' from the 'looking for...' dropdown.

    When the page is done refreshing, enter your mobile number in the format '###-###-####' into the 'shipment reference' box, then scroll down and fill in your destination country and zip code

    A guy with some time on his hands and the ability to code up a little curl script could harvest a pretty big block of the phone numbers of t-mobile subscribers who pre-ordered G1 phones based on the tracking numbers that have been posted here....

    Good thing I have no use for that list of phone numbers :D

    ok still no tracking tags in my UPS info. I checked a friend's shipping status that lives in Seattle, and same thing.

    The only thing I can think of is that tmo did a pallet ship, and none of the individual packages are getting scanned as the pallet moves to the zip-3 distribution center.

    Once it hits there it should get torn down, and loaded for delivery... it's possible the only tracking event that will happen is 'delivered'.

    Just got my billing info from UPS, seems the farther east you are the later in the week it was logged in. If you calculate the time it takes to go from Kentucky,I am in Illinois, I am assuming we should have them on tuesday, the 21st which is what the TMo rep told me 2 weeks ago. Unless you ordered it too late and will have to wait for the Nov shipping date.

    I got my shipping info this morning. I logged on at 12:45am and there was nothing. I then logged back on at 2:45am and I had the billing info on, so thats a good thing, I'll get it soon.
