    Its a cheap phone, free shipping is a nice gesture to make! Hopefully lots of people press cancel so i can get an order

    I like your thinking, cancel your order so there is one less in demand and 1 more chance of myself getting one :P
    Its good so see they are updating it,

    Would you rather have them still charged you shipping? They are making things as right as they can. It's not like we make money on the phone. Apple wouldn't do any of that.
    That is what they did with the Nexus 7, and no - this is better. But not by much.

    You, sir, are delusional. Absolutely NOTHING was handled well. Google did NOT do "a good job". Period.

    If you did a similar " good job" at your own work place you'd be filling a small box with your personal affects and making your way to the unemployment line. End of discussion.

    :rolleyes:

    This is a sad effect of the modern age. We have largely become numb to failings and shortcomings. People think you're a nut for getting upset these days.

    When it comes to arguably one of the top 5 companies in the world making a mistake of this caliber, I think we have a right to get upset.

    This wasn't a mom and pop shop that overestimated the demand on their cupcakes.

    Great line. It is a little bit odd they underestimated demand by this much. Even LG was saying it will go nuts hence why they want to push it into stores, they said this before the launch!

    I'd like to point something out that I haven't seen mentioned. Nexus has always been a niche brand. Which is fine, however, Google Marketing department should have been able to gauge from forums, reviews and other chatter that this launch was not going to be small.

    Now maybe they weren't prepared but I could see with all the new registrations to this forum (myself included) that interest in this device was skyrocketing when Sarah made us believe the announcement would be delayed.

    That was two and a half weeks ago. There should have been people noticing Google was looking at something different.

    My final thought, this entire situation would be 10 times better if Google would provide some straight answers to the following questions that aren't vague guesses.

    When will they be restocked?
    How many were available on Launch day?
    How many are currently back ordered?
    When will the rest of us be able to order them again?

    Finally now that we're in this mess what is being done to make this product available to the customers that haven't heard anything from Google since Tuesday when they said "Wow, I guess we need more."

    4.2 definitely does give the GNex a little boost, especially the camera tweaks...so it makes the next day go by quicker until mine arrives. (yes, I'm one of the lucky ones)

    This poll is to get an idea of how many Nexus 4's actually shipped vs how many were backordered.

    I got the dreaded email telling me my order was backordered. I'm disappointed and I'm not going to cancel my order, at least I'll get it as soon as Google has more Nexus 4 in stock

    Ugh! Not another one of these threads! Don't you understand? yes your
    Phone is back ordered and yes you will get it as soon as more are made. Guess what....so will everyone else! Back ordered means they don't have enough which means they make more. Do you think they will make only enough to fill the orders then say "ok guys, stop the production, we covered the back orders"? No! They will keep making them cause now they know the demand. That means the ones that didn't get one the first day, and obviously you didn't either, will be able to order one. Jesus Christ!

    I'm not complaining and nothing that you wrote pertains to my initial post. Take a breather and calm down.

    This has nothing to do what he's asking : /

    Backordered here too...won't be canceling though because at least I know I'll get it when they get more. Unlike others that have to keep checking the Play Store. What I don't understand is how Google didn't have enough to go for the first day. It's there flagship Nexus device that comes out once a year no? Jeez Apple sold 3 mil over a weekend. I bet Google only had a quarter of that many.

    At least it gives me some time to track down some quality screen protectors and cases!

    The people in limbo shouldn't count because it's not that hard to pick up a phone and ask. What's the point in waiting for an email if your curious? Screw the limbos!

    Not relevant at this point most of those "limbo" people are probably having other issues and probably will eventually get their N4 eventually shipped or backordered.

    I think people would be more forgiving if Google had been a bit more upfront about things. Instead they chose not to tell people when the phone would go on sale. They took what will probably turn out to be thousands of orders when they did not have the stock to deliver. There is no explanation of how they chose who gets their orders filled and who doesn't. I did not hear of anyone getting an email that the phones were available. As of five minutes ago they still have a hold on the money in my bank account for the phone. Google needs to be concerned about their brand image at this point. They already have a reputation for being disorganized. This doesn't help. They need to tell people their plan for fixing this. People don't like being treat arbitrarily. A fair solution would be to fill the orders FIFO. Anyone that ordered five phones only gets one now, so the largest number of people can be satisfied. That would probably leave me out in the cold since I didn't my order in until the afternoon, but at least I would understand. We should get a consolation that we will be first in line when the new shipments come in and that Google has looked at the numbers and can give reasonable assurance that the next batch will fill the previously accepted orders. Or if there won't be enough, tell us that. If you treat people like cattle, eventually they will turn off to your product. Right now it seems as though Google really could not care less. Most of the people who have their orders backlogged are probably in the same boat as myself: I really like the product and am willing to wait, just treat me fairly.

    Sorry for the bad luck some of you are having, but mine shipped. According to the tracking number, my Nexus is currently sitting at a UPS location that is less than 30 minutes from my house. I will be really upset and shocked if it doesn't get delivered tomorrow.

    It has everything to do with it. Look at all the other threads that ask if you got it out if it's back ordered. I'm just saying if you hit f5 a billion times only to find out you're still weeks away sucks. I'm sorry, I'm mad at the situation. It just sucks that most who thought they would have a device way ahead of everyone else find out they wait like the rest of us.

    Btw, I'm not checking the play store any more than you're checking your email or doorstep. when they are in stock again everyone will get one just the same as all the back orders are filled. Again, I'm mad at the situation.sorry.

    Not sure about that

    They should be sending out all the backordered devices out first before they come back in stock for the people who didn't get an order in
