Is there such a thing? Or are we all in the same inaccurate fulfillment line? Are a certain number of handsets allotted to online orders, Company store orders,other outlets,ect. I had ordered through Customer Relations because they moved my eligibility date from Oct 23 to Release Day. Am I penalized for that? Others who ordered after I did are currently enjoying the exact handset I ordered. Of course there is no rhyme or reason to their fulfillment process. Yes,they gave the absurd shipping date of Oct 23-30 back on Sep 25. Why absurd you ask-because most of us know it will arrive sooner as that ABSURD date is a CYA for them. Rant over (for now).
