    I don't know about the official bumper case, and as you know I don't have a phone yet but I purchased $3 case from eBay, just to protect the phone from some problems.

    Tell me about it! I know when it's arriving, but I still keep checking the UPS tracker hoping that the date somehow miraculously changes to an earlier time. lol. I just want that phone!

    I've got a feeling that I'm not in this batch. No shipping email plus credit card isn't charged. The credit card should have at least been charged, right? 6-7 weeker.

    If it was shipped your card would have been charged. Sorry.

    Till a week or so back there was only 1 drop test... it was some Russian thing... guess the phone was so unavailable people either couldn't get it to drop, or didn't want to break the only one they could get their hands on...

    Just curious if that means they don't move cargo of if they just don't deliver. It would make some sense to not be delivering given how many businesses will probably remain closed.

    Interestingly enough, ups US lists new years Eve as a holiday but canada doesn't seem to. However, if the package is sitting in the US, that wouldn't matter.

    What constitues New Years Eve? Just the latter part of the day? I work until Noon here, maybe there's half a day of transport to be had on Monday.

    I wish there were some people who work in UPS, or Google, or LG, who spend some time on these forums. Would be much better...

    Can you blame them...? :P
    why not call them... can't ignore your call can they...?

    But I think I had read Jan 30th over here only... in this thread...


    But as for us whose phones have been shipped but stuck... this extra 3 day wait sucks... what a wasted new years :P
    Butttttt... better 3 days late than 4 days or 5 days or more later :P
    So close yet so far...

    By the way... so many people are complaining about cracked screens its making me paranoid... I hate cases... but better a $20 case than a $140 screen... but watched some reviews for the official bumper... it seems the rubber on the front screen kills the feel for the curved edges... its not even properly a close fit... rather loose floppy plastic... but otherwise it looks and feels like its actually part of the phone they say...

    Opinions...?

    I really like the look of the bumper and will likely pick one up if ever available. In the mean time I picked up four 2 dollar cases from eBay to try out.

    Key word, "ever" :P It seems Google has royally screwed up this launch with their marketing schemes. The sad part is that the scheme worked (there is a lot of buzz about the Nexus 4 now) and that these customers that are getting the phone late will still buy future devices from Google. A win-win situation for them.

    I wouldn't call it a scheme so much as just Google having no idea how to properly sell actual products. Very poor demand projections is my assumption. It will be interesting to see how many units they have actually sold... either they really produced too few or the demand was incredible. I'm betting on them producing too few. Outisde of our little world of android on forums like this no one has any idea what a nexus handset is.

    Yeah probably, but they had a phone information on their website for about 10 day before selling it. Maybe there was really a lot of people who saw the price and decided to buy such a great phone.

    If they were smart about it they would have had a pre-order to see how much interest there was. Not just put them up for sale and do a pre-order 1.5-2 weeks prior.
