    Yepppp, just got my backorder email as well (Boston). I wonder now, is anyone actually receiving a Nexus 4, or was this all a ruse? Also, are we going to be refunded that exorbitant "2-day shipping" fee? Because no way am I paying $15 for 3 week shipping..

    Edit: It does look like they will "credit the shipping charges", so I guess it's bumped down to free shipping?

    I guess I'll just mess around with CM10 until then!

    Ugh, just got the same e-mail a few minutes ago Oh, well, 3 weeks is not that bad. On the plus side AT&T finally lit up LTE in Charleston, SC this morning!!! I can finally burn some LTE on my other phones while I wait!
    Oh did they?! (I'm in Goose Creek small world...) Yea I am with Sprint currently and as you may know, or not, the data in Charleston area has to be the worst speeds of anywhere in the world! Guess I got <3 weeks before my nexus 4 can liberate me..

    This is MADNESS. So I take it this isn't exclusive to Europe? First I saw a guy from Germany receive this email, now this guy from the UK, and now people in the US.

    Is there a pattern or algorithm that G is using to determine who's Nexus gets backordered? Are we all potential targets? I ordered mine on Nov 13, 2012 8:41 AM PST (thats 11:41AM EST, as soon as they released it), did anyone order that early and receive this email? If I was one of the first to order and get this email I will be enraged and burn down the Kentucky warehouse so all of us can suffer muhahaha!

    Thank you for your recent purchase on Google Play. Due to overwhelming demand, your Nexus 4 is on backorder and is expected to ship within three weeks. Well send you a notification when your order has shipped and will credit the shipping charges.

    - - - Updated - - -

    But when you contact Google Support on email bout shipping they send

    Orders are shipped within two business days of placing your order, and will be delivered upon two additional business days of processing.

    According to our records, your order should ship by the evening of November 15.

    Upon receiving your shipping confirmation email, you'll be given a tracking number that will assist you in determining your package's estimated delivery date. Please note that it might take up to 24 hours before the tracking number returns any information.

    Yup, just got the email too!

    I kinda knew it was coming TBH, felt it in my bones as I still hadn't received a tracking number. Ah well, wouldn't have been able to play with it much next week anyhow as I have family visiting from out of state.

    Still, royally sucks how the Goog has handled this IMHO. Very, very poor.

    I wonder if the people in the US that are getting the message are the ones that were hitting refresh after the mad rush was over and getting lucky with the add to cart option popping up momentarily. Maybe it's more an issue with the website allowing additional orders randomly and erroneously after the actual units were gone.

    Hah, that's pretty sweet. Yea I had an EVO with Sprint and now a GS3. I long dreamed of that day when the 4G setting worked but I realize that will never happen :/ or at least no time soon hah. An unlocked off contract Nexus 4 on Tmo (better yet Solavei) is a better deal even if it does come.

    That's how mine went through. I wanted to at least pre-order it so I guess I got my wish.

    Just got the same damn email at 2:57 pm (I'm in Boston, MA). How the hell does a company this big screw up this badly. Unbelievable!!!! When i emailed them earlier today (2 hours ago) they replied that my order was scheduled to be shipped tonight, now i get this BS email about "within 3 weeks". Everything about this phone launch was 100% amateur hour. Thanks for nothing in particular Google. The iPhone 5 or GS3 may be a more viable option at this point. I'm not willing to wait any longer considering that Google sold out in an hour or so & now are talking "within 3 weeks". I'm not very confident in that window being met.
