Did T-Mobile halt the G1 pre-order shipments?

Did T-Mobile halt the G1 pre-order shipments?

Summary: OK, now that you spent the time checking out my full T-Mobile G1 review you are wondering where your order is. There was talk yesterday that T-Mobile had sent out the pre-ordered devices early and I just checked and confirmed that my device did indeed leave the warehouse on 14 October. However, I just checked it again and it has been rescheduled for delivery on 21 October. Is everyone else's preorder getting this mysterious rescheduled delivery status? It seems that T-Mobile may have paused the delivery mid-stream.

Did T-Mobile halt the G1 pre-order shipments?OK, now that you spent the time checking out my full T-Mobile G1 review you are wondering where your order is.

To find out what the status is of your shipment, just go to UPS.com and then click on track by reference. Enter your T-Mobile cell phone number like this, xxx-xxx-xxxx, and then you should see your package status. My package is currently sitting in Hodgkins, Illinois and appears to be sitting in the warehouse. I was all excited about a delivery this week and think it would have been great PR for T-Mobile to actually deliver these devices early.

  • Billed but not shipped...

    (for me..) UPS indicates that the shipment has been billed (scheduled) but UPS is not in possession of the package.

    OK, the insanity needs to stop. UPS has your shipping information - that's all. I'm guessing they won't start shipping until tomorrow if you have a delivery date of 10/21. Hey, that's already a day ahead of schedule. So can everyone just take a deep breath and stop posting all these rumors so the rest of us can wait for our phones without getting heart attacks every 1/2 hour?

    • Mine stated that it left one facility and was in transit

      Actually, mine showed up as in transit and delivered to a different location and then the delivery was rescheduled.

    Mine said billing info only, no ship date, can I just say, if we don???t get the G1 before they hit the stores, I???ll be well P O, what was the point of pre ordering it?

  • TMobile G1 Shipping Updates

    Okay just checked UPS looks like mine is coming out of Kentucky and should be here on Monday!!! I hope that holds out but if its the 22nd I understand. Considering that my Wing has seen its better days, the G1 cant get here soon enough!

    • Mine now in Illinois

      Mine started in Kentucky too and is not in Illinois. I don't care when I get mine since I have been lucky enough to have a review unit for a week now :) Actually, if I get it on the 22nd, that would be just fine with me.
