    Oops! Even though the phone was released on Friday, there is a "delay in shipping because Saturday and Sunday are a weekend"... and it may take another "14 days".... (???)

    I keep trying to give Blackberry a chance, but they continuously fail time after time. That is sad.

    I guarantee you that if Apple or Samsung were releasing a phone on "Friday"... they would have that phone ready to be shipped out on F-R-I-D-A-Y. Why? Because they probably have smart people who understand that "Saturday" and "Sunday" come after "Friday".

    This is incredible. What was the point of a "pre-order" if you can just waltz into AT&T and buy the phone?

    X_x location?

    (USA here)

    I saw another poster say the exact same thing in another thread, had hoped he was trolling...

    So is this for ALL orders? O_o

    I wonder how many users will join Bakron,

    Unfortunately not many of us (at least in US) have an alternative (noty att)

    Well, until Monday we'll see

    The correct way for ShopBlackBerry to do it is if the phone is going to be available at stores on Friday, ship the damn thing on Wednesday to make sure that people who pre ordered it would get it the same day it's officially in store. Otherwise what's the freaking point of doing the order? The more most companies grow the less common sense they have.

    It's so true. I've pre-ordered from Apple a number of times and they always have the phone delivered to my door on release day. Apparently, they give them to FedEx/UPS a few days ahead of time and ask them to hold them until release day. It's really not that complicated. So much more professional than this Priv roll-out seems for Blackberry pre-orders.

    Blackberry just needs to find another better ful-fillment partner to work with since the current one was never known to do that great of a job.

    Maybe Mobile Nations / ShopCrackBerry can take over distribution for BlackBerry. They seem on the ball with their own on-line store whenever I place an order.

    Are you going to get the Priv on contract at AT&T?

    My guess is that this is a strategic/supply issue.

    It was more important to get inventory to the carriers so they can start their ad campaigns, and get the displays up in the stores.

    I, for one, am fine to wait for the factory-unlocked version. If I was desperate, I could just as easily cancel my order and get one right now from my carrier.

    Any reason for me to wait up to 14 days or should I just go grab one from ATT? I didn't want all the bloatware but want the Priv so bad!

    As if digital river cares about BlackBerry sales... BlackBerry is not their bread and butter... they have many other customers

    Maybe CrackBerry Kevin can pull up outside the BlackBerry entrance in the police cruiser powered by a Blackberry PlayBook. ;-)

    Are you willing to wait up to 14 business days to receive your BlackBerry Priv? It (the product) is definitely worth the wait but it is even better in-hand.

    What ad campaigns are you talking about? I walked in a Rogers Wireless store on Friday and there was no BlackBerry Priv on display nor any promotional posters. Maybe it was hidden in the backroom along with the BlackBerry Priv that I bought.

    The bloatware is usually pushed by your carrier anyway in that first update you get when setting up your phone.

    Does the AT&T version have wireless charging? That's the main difference between the unlocked one and the carrier ones here in Canada.

    Now I know why people hate Digital River so much.

    "Pre-Order" - more like, lets help kill this company so people buy Crapple and Samsung

    I almost want to just not get the phone and go with the Turing Phone instead. Funny thing is I ordered this after getting frustrated by the lack of updates on the Turing phone and now these guys are giving us the same run around. It's highly disappointing.

    This is complete BS now. I was going to cut BlackBerry some slack and was pretty sure they would ship at least one pre order on RELEASE day, but nobody got one and was completely pointless to pre order...How do you call that a release day when you don't release anything!? Just release the carriers to sell limited stock and reviews...yeah, wha wha, cry, cry...But this company is clearly not organized or prioritizing correctly. What is the point to get people to pre-order and do not think they will at least get a shipment notification on release day....

    I am surprised they didn't partner with Amazon again. That was a nice alternative to Shop BB with the passport.
