    So, it seems that - once again - Google is screwing its most loyal customers, those who pre-order new devices from the Google Store, sight unseen.

    When are Google Store orders going to ship???
    I'm hoping since Verizon ship dates r for tomorrow or the 20th and the earliest ones I've seen from the Google store r the 21st-24th we should soon start seeing shipping information tonight or tomorrow. But that's just my guess.

    I'm seeing a trend here. Maybe I missed it, but I have not seen a single silver Verizon shipped yet. All black.

    Verizon isn't going to hold up the updates. Google will push the updates and anyone with an unlocked one will get them and supposedly the ones on Verizon will to. If they don't then Verizon is holding up their customers updates, not Google's. That's like saying carrier x is gonna hold up apples updates for everyone's phone. Not gonna happen. And as far as the 3 apps? Installing a sim card in the phone isn't going to install those apps. Verizon has released a bunch of apps for Nexus devices. I'm using some of them on my 6p right now. None of which loaded on their own lol. Not to mention with an unlocked bootloader even if Verizon would hold up the updates which I seriously doubt. Google will release the image and you could flash them on to the phone to update it that way.
    This all seems to be somewhat against what I have read.
    First. several mods have posted that, yes nothing from verizon comes preloaded on the phone. But as soon as you put the vzw sin card in the phone updates and pushed (in this case we assume go90, my verizon and vzw message). So even if you get the phone via google, the same result. I bet that even the phones from verizon will arrive without those apps, until you activate the sim.

    Second it has also been said and confirmed that all updates for the pixel will be pushed out at the same time. I don't believe you will see any delay. But what may happen is that behind the scenes after google is done, verizon may drag there feet delaying the update, then in a unified front you will see the update get pushed. So for example if this was a nexus device, and the update is done on 1-1-2017, then the update is pushed in 1-1-17. but now with verizon, it may go to them and be pushed back to 2-2-17. we wouldnt know because they will push out the unified update in 2-2-17.

    I get the bootloader/rooting/roms part. The verizon verzion will not have this ability and if you are one to do this then the only recourse is unlocked. But what if google decided to nullify this by releasing all updates first thru the pixel. I assume the benifit of rooting/roming is to be able to flash it ahead of the update. but what if that didnt happen. I am sure flashiing for some people will have further benefits but that may no longer be one of them.

    lets think about this logistically. Google is a great many things, but they are not a retail giant. Each person that orders a phone via google, need to have information entered, labels created, boxes to stuff and all that stuff.

    Verizon already has your information. they already have stores/warehouses and all the stuff needed to process orders for many location and ship simultaneously. To google you are a single user end customer. Verizon is not those things.

    BTW why do you think Google had more then one option for buying thru them. Probably to split orders naturally amoung staff without having to change supply channels.

    Is this right, no. Will google get better. They better now that they have to kick the dirt off there new phone manufacturing company.

Or when it leaves tn, or when it arrives in monroe, or when it shows out for del, or when i get home and its there, or when i am home chekcing the front door all day, or when it arrives and i can open it, or when i turn it on and start to get set up. Yes then I will feel better.

    Actually, Google does not do the shipping; they use an order fulfillment company to handle the dirty work.

    And, in every Nexus release, the job was butchered badly. I have hopes that that will not happen again, but not holding my breath...

    Not sure I totally agree with that. I had no issue with both Nexus 6 and 6p delivery. My 6p actually came earlier than projected date.

    that proves my point even more. They are so far behind verizon in this situation they need help. The premise is all the same. That company does not have the resources verizon does, or the customer base.

    The alternative would be to increase the overall time it takes to get the phones. Meaning not take verizon's money or bulk orders... that wont happen. I still say this brakes down this way because googel can make x,000,000 phones and verizon takes x, 000, 000 off there hands day one. the rest get sold 1x.

    I think this is a base rate problem. If you look at the poll numbers a disproportionate number of ACers indicated that they are ordering black. Hence you expect to see more references to the black Pixel.

    Pre-ordering from the Google Store sight unseen doesn't at all mean anyone is more loyal. I'm not sure where you get that idea.

    Good point. Literally the only reason I went silver is because my iPhone 7 is black. lol

    Do you need an unlocked boot loader to flash the stock images? One of the great benefits of unlocked boot loaders is being able to flash roms. Such as Cyanogenmod. Some of these roms offer features and optimizations stock does not have.

    But if you have no desire to flash roms then the boot loader makes no difference.

    Ok I have to ignore this thread. Seeing posts from people that ordered after 10/4 but are getting their phones as early as 10/20 makes me a very sad panda

    Well it seems they charged me on the 14th, but I've yet to see any ship notification or update to my order in the google store. I ordered through Fi on the 4th so I'm hoping this means it will ship a little early as they don't charge until it ships. Wish there was a bit more information though.

    Ordered mine via Google on day one, haven't seen anything it's shipped yet. I took the lowest shipping option, though (I think there was a free shipping option?), so my estimate for arrival has always been 10/26-10/28. Which I'm fine with.

    What concerns me, though, is that when I preordered, I had to call my bank because it was declining my card, and had to tell them to approve the charge. But that was only Google doing a temporary hold, and the funds have since been released. So, I'm worried that when they go to charge my card, it will decline again, and I'll have to call my bank again and reapprove the charge. So, I'm kind of stressing myself out trying to keep an eye on things so that I don't overlook any notice that my card was declined and can get things resolved ASAP. But I don't know when my order will even get charged. @_@

    Yeah the first charge disappeared, and then it just came back on Friday. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
