    Default Penalized for preordering the RAZR

    I preordered the RAZR 10/27/11 at 8am. I called customer service today to follow up on the status of the preorder. Customer Service stated that the preorder was processed and it would ship on the 11/10/11 and it would ship 2 day air however the 12th falls on Saturday so the arrival date should be 11/14/11. 4 days after it has been released in verizon stores. I spoke with 3 different customer service rep's and all had the same response.
    I questioned the benefit of the preorder and there only response was you will get a phone reserved for you, In the event of a sale out. This is the first/last time i have preordered and i have never had a problem going to a Verizon store a hour or two prior to the store opening on a launch date to get and receive a phone that i wanted. I thought by preordering it would come a couple days early and i was spending the money anyway for this phone so why not.
    When i preordered the verizon rep stated i should receive the phone on the 3rd or 4th of Nov. but he was not 100% sure. I am little put out by expecting one thing and getting the opposite. Anyway i though i would throw out my experience of the day with Verzion.

    I doubt you'll get it any later than the 10th. Don't listen to them.

    Angry Re: Penalized for preordering the RAZR

    I hope you are right about not listening to them because I got the same sort of response from a CS. She told me they couldn't ship until the 10th and I would get mine on the 15th from FEDEX!!! Even the time for FEDEX to get it to me sounds fishy!! Got the same response re: why pre-order question.

    I would simmer down a bit and reserve the rants for the 11th IF and when the stores have it and you don't. I'm confident that they will ship before they go on sale in brick and mortar stores. "No Later Than" is another word for "Before" without a commitment.

    If the 11th comes and goes and I am still waiting for Fed Ex, believe me, I will be screaming louder than everyone here, but for now, I wait patiently...

    seriously.....someone out there MUST know more. Perhaps not the exact date yet, but they must know more.

    Has anyone done a preorder in the past? How did that work out?

    If mine hasn't shipped by 5pm on the 9th, I'm going to cancel the pre-order and just go buy it at the store the morning of the 10th. I'm not worried about it.

    I'm not worried either. I expect to have it by November 10th.

    This is no different than any other type of preorder. Amazon shipped Uncharted 3 to me on Monday, October 31st so that it would arrive on Tuesday, November 1st. I would expect this to be no different.

    On a side note, I got my desktop dock for the RAZR from FedEx this morning. Thanks Verizon, now I need ky phone.

    been hopefully expecting it even before the 10th..

    with that being said.. I'll probably be fine with it showing up on the 14th or whenever it does.. not worth me getting fired up about because it aint going to make my package show up quicker.

    who knows..I may have a change of heart and just cancel my pre-order and go to the store.. but probably not.

    I got a shipment from FedEx today...I was excited. However, the boneheads at Telesales never fail to disappoint. Instead of receiving the Lapdock500, RAZR Desktop dock and RAZR car dock, I received accessories for the Bionic. The same accessories I returned 3 weeks ago when I returned the phone.

    Idiots.

    The complaining in here is ridiculous. I'm almost positive that it will arrive by or before the date in question. However, when you ordered the device, it clearly stated that it "Ships by November 10th". As such, as much as you may hate to hear this, you shouldn't expect it to ship before then and arrive a few days later.

    jeez.. I'm just expecting/hoping it ships early purely based on wishful thinking.. I'm not going to be mad at Verizon if it doesnt.

    If I didnt have the handset by the 14th or 15th.. I would unleash a furious storm on Verizon.. but until then I have no problem.

    That's fine, I wasn't referring to you at all. None of us paid for or had the option for release date delivery so Verizon isn't at any fault if it arrives a few days late. As long as I have it within a week of release, I'll be happy. Everyone has the right to their opinion, but as I said, Verizon never agreed to "Release Date Delivery" and you accepted without those terms being included.

    However, again, I do believe we will see the RAZR's sooner than the 10th. Relax.

    From what I was told... come the 10th, orders would be shipped over night via Fed-Up (yeah, not a fan of these guys either).

    Spoke with two different reps while I was on the phone with Verizon earlier. One said I'll have it by the 10th, the other said it will ship on the 10th. Guess I'll find out which one was right soon enough. And I'd like to echo the comment that as long as I have the phone within launch week, I'll be alright.

    No offense but this whole thread is a little premature. Also the title is a little misleading. You haven't been penalized for pre-ordering. I don't know who told you it was better to pre-order versus going in store on release day because you'll get it earlier. That's not true. The Verizon rep is right. It just means you're guaranteed a phone, period, in the event you're local Verizon store(s) sell out on release day. It's that simple. Don't expect anything special, or the phone to land on you're doorstep 2 days early.

    Sorry you were mislead or misunderstood. I'm getting the Razr, but I don't see a need to pre-order. I'll go to the store on release day, or even after and I'm not worried about getting a phone. Heck I went to my local store on release day for my OG Droid at Noon and they still had plenty. The store wasn't swamped at all, and look how big of a release that phone was! Unless you live in a huge metropolis you should be fine.

    I too would like to get my pre-ordered phone on or especially before Nov. 10th. It would be in Verizon's favor to get some of these out to the pre-order crowd a little early just for some word of mouth build-up for the brick and mortar stores release.

    I don't understand why this has to be a confusing situation where different Verizon reps are giving different information. This is a phone, not a matter of National Security. I don't think a competing company is going to get this 5 days early, steal its "secrets" and have a phone out that trumps the RAZR before the 10th.

    Is there nobody at Android Central that can reach out to someone other than rank and file sales associates at Verizon for a definitive answer?

    Historically, I seem to remember that pre-orders have been received either on the day of the "launch" or even the day before sometimes. I would be surprised if the phone isn't scheduled to ship ahead of launch-date with intended arrival on 11/10.

    It's not "the end of the world" if it doesn't get to me on 11/10, but I would be a bit disappointed like a lot of you.

    In my experience, the VZW sales reps don't know a lot about the intricate details of ship dates and other, deep technical functionality. Thus the widely varying responses people are getting.
