WTF. why do they do this sh!t?
Do what? Have a wildly popular phone??
How dare they...
Because there's a lot of people like you that want this device. I saw it in the flesh and it's a very, very nice device. I can see why there are delays. They tried to make sure there were enough to meet demand, but didn't know demand was going to be this great! Particularly, in a non-holiday season!
Sorry that you have to wait. I wish these phone manufacturers would pump them out faster.
That said, I'm glad I got up early on the 15th
FWIW, a lot of people are getting theirs before the estimated date. I ordered late last Friday night (the 16th) and it said it'd be shipped by 7/27. And like a lot of other people on here, I got an e-mail yesterday saying it had shipped already (a week early) and will arrive tomorrow.
August 3rd...really cause i already got mine..oh wait that is cause i went to the store on release day....
Should have ordered sooner. You snooze you lose.
dear god my eyes. op stains thine eyes with swearing
Ps awesome swype recognizes old english
No mercy u snooze u lose!!!
Jk...hope u get one soon!
The dates are worst case scenario, CYA dates. Relax, they are sending them out as quickly as possible.
From my past experience in retail, I recall there are various FTC regulations in regards to order fulfillment, orders for product that is not currently in stock, etc. IIRC, they have to give you a date two-weeks out from the date of order with an option to cancel... If that changes, they have to give you a newer date, again - with an option to cancel. Yadda-yadda-yadda...
glad i got one on launch day. You should have known they would be sold out for a little while should have planned accordingly
i guess ill be waiting a while for my replacement lol
Sorry that you haven't been able to receive an X yet, just order and wait a little longer and you will have one. Still isn't as bad as the Incredible.
August 3rd is the same date they said they would ship my replacement DX (defective wifi). I hope it comes sooner though.
It can't be that bad. A colleague of mine saw my Droid X yesterday and liked it. Today he came in to work with one. Verizon store had them. No waiting list.
Oh yeah, like they intentionally singled you out to make your life miserable.
As a matter of fact, if getting your new toy in your hands immediately is the only thing you have going for you in your life, then you seriously need therapy to learn how to be happy.
If you are happy and you're just whining, then please get over your entitlement issues. If you want everything fast and your way in this world, then please hit burger king. Aside from that, there are delays and cope. For the love of God, hit your doctor up for some prozac to get you through the few days you will have to wait.
You survived all these years without the phone. Is waiting really going to kill you?
This society has degraded into a group of not deserving babies who have huge entitlement issues when they deserve nothing. Cope, grow up. And to quote denis leary, "Life sucks, buy a helmet."
EDIT: I have decided to send out free tampons to anyone who just wants to whine and has the patience of a 2 year old. I will also out you as a complete loser.
I just ordered the Droid X yesterday (7-20-10), through Wal-Mart.
Paid $125 (for the phone).
And it's on its way, arriving TOMORROW.
And that's in spite of it saying it was "backordered".
Ladies and gents, relax...
And head on over to Wal-Mart.com, and place your order. And just add coupon code "25RAFPCVER1" to slash the price to $124.99.
And in the meantime head on over to Pandora, enter "Minimal Techno", and chill with a cold beer.
Maybe by the time it ships Froyo will be out for it [sarcasm]
Not necessarily. I ordered as soon as it became available, but others who ordered later than me are getting their phones.
it will more than likely come before the 3rd. i placed an order via phone for mine this past friday around 5pm and they said it wouldnt ship until this friday (the 23rd) and id have it by tuesday the 27th. to my surprise, however, it came tuesday of this week, just 4 days after ordering it. (even though saturday and sunday arent business days). i never even got a confirmation email or tracking number. so just sit tight, youll have it soon.
First off I think it's just where you live as to when you get your phone. Second it's just a phone. Chill people. It's like July 22 now it's literally a week away if not a little more. I get your excited to get your phone and/or replacement phone, but people should realize it's just a phone and not the end of the world that it's not coming overnight. I'm personally waiting until the intial rush is over so that if I have an issue then my chances of waiting will go down. Verizon didn't intend to not have enough devices for launch. They barely did any advertising for the phone as is so it's not like it was pumped across tvs in America. Basically it's just a phone and while it's nice to have it quick and fast it's not going to cause anyone to die from not having it ASAP. Just take this as a time to detox from technology if you want. Grab a hard back book and read or something in your spare time.
Ordered mine off of Verizon's website Friday, showed up yesterday.
sorry you have to wait i got luckey and picked mine up today at sams club. they guy also offered to root my phone as well lol
