So...nobody's had a surprise visit from UPS without a shipping email? Do you have to sign for the phone or do they just drop it off?

I'm working from home today and want to go for a run soon, but don't want to miss delivery of the wife's phone either. Smilie

This is ridiculous. I just called again since I'm in limbo and got told that if you didn't get shipping info it's going to be backordered. I ordered at 11:33:17 EST (8:33:17 PST), so within THREE minutes of it going live and I'm backordered, while others who ordered later aren't?! What the hell.
I've been patient thus far, but if this is the case I'll be pissed. I also ordered within the first few minutes. I've been given hope by all my fellow limbo-ers that have reported tracking received, but if I get left behind now I'm really going to be ticked.

Yup, that's exactly how I feel. I see XDA people are saying they are receiving tracking info today, so maybe there's still hope. Someone there also said that they got the phone today despite not getting any communication at all, so maybe, just maybe...

Same here brothers! Ordered within 5 minutes. No communication whatsoever. Looks like Google cares least about folks like us. Apple or Amazon will never do something like this or they give something in return not a freaking free shipping.

How difficult is it to ship the orders in which they were received? Did Google do a select * from orders order by dateordered desc instead of asc?!! Shame!

I ended up placing two orders due to various errors. First I was ordering the phone plus bumper; once the bumper was saying sold out, I tried to just order the phone. Despite the errors I was shown, two orders actually went through:

8GB w/bumper 11:01:02 AM CST
8GB 11:09:16 AM CST

I did a cancellation on the 2nd order once I realized my first one came through. Then yesterday I received a backorder email. Both orders still showed pending in Google Wallet. Then today I get a shipping email for the 2nd order (which I supposedly canceled).

No rhyme or reason for Google's shipping pattern. I placed two orders, single units of 8gb, one at 8:43 and 9:37. I just got shipping confirmation for the one placed later, at 9:37. Funny, checking this tracking number shows the label was created on the 15th (yesterday) ...though it still shows no progress.

The UPS guy just showed up as I was about to leave out of town to visit my Dad for the weekend.

FYI - I had to sign for the package.

My order is out for delivery right now, funny thing is I checked my bank account and saw that the charge for the phone disappeared completely and I was refunded for the cost of the phone.... If this is correct it seems as though i'll be getting a Nexus 4 for free. Lets see how this plays out Big Grin
What happened is the original "authorization" dropped. Sometimes it takes 1 or 2 days for the final charge to appear. You won't be getting it for free. The timing varies from bank to bank. Mine still shows a pending charge, but I suspect that will drop off tonight after midnight.

BTW, I got the back-order email yesterday.
Only ordered 1x 16GB. I
've been showing completed in Play, nothing in Google Wallet has changed from the initial charge.

I suspect I'm in the group that would be waiting 1-3 weeks to get it. I am on the fence about cancelling. If I don't get a surprise shipping notice by Monday or Tues, I'll probably cancel the order and just wait for next year. My old Atrix 4G is still doing pretty good despite the lack of ICS or Jellybean for it (Thanks for screwing us Motorola!)

My Google Wallet transaction just moved from 'Pending' to 'Completed'. I had received the UPS MyChoice alert yesterday with delivery date of today but UPS tracking is showing delivery date of Monday with only 'Label has been created'.

No tracking or no back order email. I think Google somehow messed up the initial orders. Definitely a glitch in their system. In this day and age, if it is not first come first serve for online orders, they are doing something wrong.
They're using LIFO.
