So who did and who failed.
I didnt but will be getting the 8gb when its back in stock.
Placed mine about ten minutes after they began taking orders, no problem.
Yeah it couldn't have been smoother for me. Took about 10 secs. to order it, no error messages at all. I feel bad for the people that are having trouble though.
Any idea how long they will take to restock the phone or if they will restosk it at all ?
Started at 8:30 trying to get it, 3 browser windows open on 2 computers and could never get an order to go through. Very frustrating! Not sure how long I'm willing to wait for them to come back in stock.
Wait it will be worth it
I have a friend within the organization. They are hyper focused on doing the best job they can this time around. Rumor has it supply is pretty good so time will tell.
Who could possibly estimate demand? Even Apple (no fanboy here) finds it challenging to estimate the initial rush of orders.
I tried the very second it was in stock (was refreshing the page for 15 min before it was available) and got nothing but error messages. tried for a half hour... the closest i got was to the point where all the information was ready to be sent, clicked buy, sat for 5 min holding my breath, switched to a different tab, Chrome froze and force closed on me...
I hate you google... why couldn't you set up pre-orders like the Nexus 7!?!?
Yeah doesn't look like it went through for me. It gave me an error from Google Wallet after getting every other kind of error for like half an hour. Would've been nice if it had gone on sale when they said it would as well and I'd have had more time to try to order one.
Edit: Looks like it went through to google wallet for the 8gb version. Hopefully it ships today.
Interesting I hope your friend is right about the stock and don't forget to vote people
I need to change my vote to "got the 8gb" now lol
Don't think you can but it dosnt really matter
When do you think it will be back in stock?
My order went through. 16GB.
I didn't get a confirmation email though, even though I have an order number through google wallet and google wallet's page says they sent a confirmation email. Maybe when they ship it out they'll send an email.
I got my confirmation email around 30 minutes after I placed the order. Usually play store emails are instantaneous so I'd guess yours is just hung up in a queue somewhere.
quick question do you need google wallet to order the phone or is it automatically set up
i kinda expected it, but still i got irritated
i dicked around for 40 minutes... refreshing the page until it showed in stock... i was able to add it to my cart like 10 times, and it would error out when clicking proceed..
at one point i was able to take it up to revise order and when i click buy, it error out on me again.
quite a bit of a PITA.... really not cool
I just got off work and 5 minutes of hitting f5 got me the 16GB Nexus 4 ordered! Estimated delivery date 11/15. Sweet!
Got my email rather quick! Now just chilling in wallet as pending.
If i keep hitting refresh is it possible one might come up or is it completely sold out in the uk
got lucky and got mine
That is basically what I did, I was able to buy a 16GB N4 3 hrs. after they went on sale by refreshing and trying to put it in cart and buy. I had the same problems as many of you initially, I'd get it in the cart but then get errors. Then it went to "Notify Me" status which made people think they were already sold out. But occasionally I would Refresh and the button changed to the Buy button.
I basically kept trying that until it worked. Got the Pending listing in Wallet and also a confirmation email. They also charged me the full amount on my CC. Just keep trying, and if your browser supports it use something that auto-refreshes the page and alerts you if there is a change.
edit: keep in mind I'm in the US, it might be different for you in the UK.
What browser auto alerts you and how do you add thus setting
If you're using Google Chrome there is an extension called Page Monitor that monitors a page and updates you if there is any change. You can also set how often it checks the page and set it to make a noise when it changes.
