    I know this is somewhat unrelated, but I am desperate for an answer. And hey, I'm only going this insane about it cause I want my new green housing! You guys know when you want something for your Berry, you want it now!

    So anyways, I added my card yesterday, which is an American Express, and was told it could take 2-3 days to get my verification code (from PayPal). After several CS calls, I seemed to gather the information that AmEx cards take longer then Visa or Master Card. No big deal, Saturdays and Sundays don't ship from Hong Kong sellers. But I would really like to pay Saturday or Sunday, so it may be shipped Monday or Tuesday.

    So after all my rambling: Here is my question:

    For those of you with experience, does PayPal and/or AmEx count Saturday and Sunday as days to verify? Could I have my code Saturday or Sunday versus Monday or Tuesday?

    And by the way, yes I did decide on green!

    I think they mean business days, so probably no code until next week.

    Don't forget to take pictures when you get your new housing!

    That sucks
    The only reason i assumed all days was because dealing with money and eBay, I don't think people would want to wait till Monday. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
    And yeah, I'm soooo excited to have a custom Berry, cause I saw three red ones this week
    I want mine to be unique. And I'm protecting it right! Ordering a new BSE, and putting it on before I put the housing on my phone so I can get it super wet to slide it into place perfect, and get rid of dust.
    One more thing! I'm in such a hurry too cause the Novus messed my screen majorly

    Has anyone ever ordered from Hong Kong too? When they say 8 - 14 business days, does it really take that long? Or longer? But don't forget! My PayPal question is more important right now!

    kind of a moot point i suppose but i paid for something with a visa debit, and it cleared right away. i'm not sure if it's cuz it was w/ a debit card or if it was the visa bit, but it went way fast

    and yes, pictures please!

    If you have used PayPal many times you can become verified also adding a credit card, and their credit card you can do a PayPal instant transfer that has no wait. I use PayPal too much :P
