Have you pre-ordered yet?

white3

For those of who were lucky enough to get your orders in by noon today, you are among the first who will experience the G1, that much we already knew. If you failed to make that deadline and for some reason you just weren’t able to pull the trigger on the order yet, you will have some extra time to consider what took you so long! Pre-orders placed after noon today PDT, will have an expected delivery date of November 10th. That’s right, more than two weeks later than the rest. Which begs the question, what happens to those who were hoping to get their grubby paws on one first via a retail store? Will they still be available for order to those in 2G areas? This leaves a lot of unanswered questions about what will happen after the 22nd and most important to me, where is my white G1??

UPDATE: Gizmodo is reporting that this change in dates comes even after T-mobile tripled the amount of phones available for the first run of pre-sale orders. Of course the exact number of phones available for pre-sale are under wraps.

    I pre-ordered mine a while ago, the first day it came out. I was contemplating but hey… wgaf, right?
    I got 10 phones in total for both of my family plans and I think i’m going to sell 8 of them when I get em :)

  • T1 Connect

    @sheshe why are you sending it back

  • SheShe

    if my sis doesnt buy it its goin right back

  • T1 Connect

    she will after she plays with it

  • OLeG

    I think every t-mobile user (at least in NYC) should have one, it’s the only phone people might be attracted to. I’m wondering how hard it’s going to be to crack…

  • T1 Connect

    crack what the sim unlock cause u could just call tmobile and ask them for it. that is if youv’e been a customer for more than 90 days

    i would have been all over a hot pink one if it was available. i pre-ordered the black but every time i see a white one it makes me want to trade somebody.

    on another note, i have yet to see a commercial for the G1. where the hell are they playing???

    You will not need a special sim card for the 3g network. According to the information provided at the call center I work at, the phone will transist seemlessly from the gsm to 3g networks without need of new sim card. Also, to Just Me, you can call customer care to cancel the order but its never guaranteed that it will be cancelled, even if it was less than an hour. If it doesnt get cancelled just refuse the shipping and it will be sent back and your handset upgrade options will be reset.

    I just want to know if some one will write a program that will sync my 705 outlook contacts to G Mail so I can have them ready when I log into this phone and when I say sink I mean all the photos, birthdays, notes, 3 different numbers, websites, and multiple email address that I have stored from these contacts it would be such a pain to key input all that info again

  • dflat7

    PLEASE!!! Does anyone know if you are able to change the color to white or brown even if you pre-order it 2 min after the launch??? Customer Reps??? PLEASE!!!!????

  • dflat7

    BTW I have a confirmation #, it starts with 14, that means that it’s for real, right?

  • SheShe

    @dflat7 i think u have to return it and then order another one… call customer care to make if ur not sure u placed the order

  • dflat7

    @SheShe Thanks…you are right just called and no, you cannot change the color of the pre-order. No worries, I like the Black one. The white is not available since the paint was chipping off…bummer, but it’s in and will ship right on time, CAN’T WAIT!!!!

  • dat chyk

    @LipGloss666 – I pre-orederd the black too…but every time I see the white…it makes me want white. I won’tr try to trade though cause I love the color black anyway…but I feel u.

  • SheShe

    No Prob dflat ;)

  • dflat7

    Anyone here is a programmer and can enlighten us (or me) on what you need to write an app? Do you need to know java or any kind of code or any john doe can do it….?

  • dat chyk

    @mvb757 – It sounds like you did not receive a partial upgrade if you paid $299. That’s the full price at the moment (I believe…someone correct me if I’m wrong).

  • http://www.monicasgonzalez.blogspot.com monica

    @dat chyk
    I was under the impression the regular price was $399, but at preorder you received a $100 instant rebate if you were not eligible for an upgraded price.

  • dat chyk

    @monica – When I pre-ordered it said retail was $399.99 (Lookin at my printed confirmation now…even though I got it at $179.99). But after I pre-ordered and checked the next day…it gave me a price of $299 as an upgrade, so I assumed that $299 was the price n e 1 would pay without a discount (Since I had just used mine (upgrade) and that’s the price I got). I could be wrong…nah mean? Iono, but that’s price I get…as of today.

    Anybody else who pre-ordered and went back in…see a diff price?

  • Joey

    Google how to get your contacts from outlook to Gmail. I had all my contacts on my treo, and got them into my gmail within 20ish minutes

    @dat chyk
    Ya I see what you’re saying. I just figured it was a “rebate” since it showed that on G1 site, and a rep my hubby talked to said the same. Perhaps they figured 399 was too high and just decided to keep it at the $299 price. Either way, its still worth it to me :)

  • CJ

    I pre-ordered my G1 on the 23rd. Ever since then my upgrade page has showed I could order again, at the 299 price with 2 year contract extension. I called on the 25th and they showed my order and gave me a confirmation number. Today, it shows that I have a full upgrade available again and that I can pre-order at the 179.99 price. I called customer care and was told because the phones are back ordered, the system automatically reset me to being able to fully upgrade again so that if I changed my mind I’d be able to get the correct price on any phone I ordered. She still shows my order on the 23rd and says I will receive it on or about Oct 22nd. Makes me worry that the order was canceled, but she says it will only cancel if I order another phone now…including if I try to order the G1 again….it would put me in the second run and automatically cancel my first order. Just wanted everyone to be careful if this is true..you might inadvertanly cancel your 1st order….

  • Yung Meeage

    well…. I just called Tmobile and inorder 2 get a white G1 go in on the day to the retail store, first come first severed. Thats what he said 2 me.

  • rolltide

    I was told today CR that there were not doing the white because the paint was chiping…

  • CC Dude

    I’m a tmobile customer care rep and to answer your questions:

    1. For those of you who ordered early, the G1 is scheduled to ship out so it will ARRIVE at your home by the 22nd, although T-Mobile is being careful to avoid promising that. Their verbiage is something to the effect of “Your T-Mobile G1 device should arrive at your home by the launch date of October 22, but actual delivery date may vary.” So don’t call customer care complaining if its a day or two late.

    2. The phone will be available to all Postpaid and Flexpay customers (sorry Prepaid, can’t put the data package on your accounts) via customer care and mytmobile.com on 10/22, however it will only be available in select retail stores. Tmobile is making it available in any store that currently has active 3G coverage. For example, if you live in Kansas City, you will be able to score a phone at a T-Mobile store in the city, but if you live in that market in outlying areas (e.g., SW/NW Missouri or Kansas), then the phone will not be available for purchase in stores in your town. Not to worry though, EVERY tmobile store will have at least one working demo of the phone so you can go play with it then order it online or thru 611. You’ll just have to wait a long time for it to ship. With over 1.5 mil phones pre-ordered so far, expect it to be backordered.
