    Ordered on 9/9/13 at 3pm. Paid in full. 599.00$. It stated in stock, 2 day shipping. So how the heck has it taken someone 3 days to walk over to a shelf, take it off the shelf, and then let it sit around waiting for FedEx to pick it up. Their is a serious issue going on over at the Texas plant. I would have gotten it faster if it was made in China. I watched that little video they had of the Texas plant! Did not look to promising. And they can't blame this on fedex, they have been in business for a long time. Don't state 2 day shipping, and if it's not in stock don't say it is. I ordered a in stock nexus 4 from the Google play store and it got to my house in under 48hrs. I ordered the GS4 the day it was released and got it over nighted to me for free. What's the issue here Motorola? I bet this will be your last plant in America!

    That should have been picked up by FedEx either today (11th) or tomorrow (12th) for 2 day shipping (ships in two business days) and depending on which should arrive between the 12th and 16th to comply with the shipping schedules.

    No offense but there could be some serious patience issues here not shipping. I was expecting to hear about someone who has waited two weeks or something.

    I've received two separate phones in 2 days from them.. It will make it.

    By the way 9.9 at 3pm doesn't count as a business day.. Your first business day is 9.10 so technically your phone shouldn't touch down till tomorrow.

    When someone says 2 day shipping most would tend to believe that the package should arrive to u within 2 business days of ordering. Not within 2 business days of "whenever we feel like putting it in a box and handing off to FedEx, a week later". That's called "handling" from the old phrase "shipping & handling" Businesses have dropped the word handling to make the consumer believe the package will received in 2 days.

    When u purchase over night delivery, that means the package will get to u the next day, by latest 3pm.

    3pm is not a day.. That's the end of a day. Yesterday was the first business day on your shipping time. Not 9.9

    They say usually ships within 1-2 business days and then you have the shipping option, presumably 2 day shipping. For FedEx that usually means, not counting the day you ordered (unless the seller rushes it) 2-4 business days total. Depending on the day of the week, that can be 2 to 6 calendar days, assuming no holidays or issues that cause delays.

    Not sure what time zone your in, but lets not count the 9/9/13, I agree 3 pm is the end of the day. 9/10/13; 9/11/13 that's 2 days and it hasn't shipped, and today is the 12th, very ealry. That's 2 full business days. I guaranty that I will still not have received the phone, or will it even be marked as shipped.

    Only one of my phones was marked as shipped. The other showed up before any status was changed through Motorola site.

    That's always a positive. They said mine has been ready for release for 1 full day as of yesterday at 3pm. With no tracking number aval, because it's been waiting for FedEx for 1 full day, and they can't give me a reason why it's still their.

    I agree, but companies tend to be careful about guaranteeing delivery by x date. They're even couching 1-2 days handling time to say, "typically ships within 1-2 business days", which I read as, "on average, YMMV". FedEx is then estimating delivery at 2 business days from when it's in their hands.

    Hopefully they get rolling soon, but based on the dates you'd provided my guess would have been for received on the 13th or 16th, but FedEx needs to have it in their hands on the 12th to make either possible.

    Ordered on 9th, not a full day, don't count it. The 13th would be 4 business days, the 16th would be 5 business days. I agree with you on that. But they state 2 day shipping! Not 4-5 days shipping. If you say 2 day shipping it means 2 day shipping (48hrs in transit) The handling time is already factored in. Motorola is a huge company, they are extremely overwhelmed in Texas and this is why my phone is late. Not my fault, not my problem.

    It was paid by credit card! Not like they gotta wait for the check to clear.......

    Right, but 2 days starts when it ships. The "ships within" is where the time is added. I'm not trying to say that I like it or agree with the language, but to explain how it works.

    I get that 2 days starts when it ships. But when does it ship, where does the "ships within" come into play. Where does it say "ships within"? It says "2 day shipping" Those are 2 totally different meanings. This is not a custom moto maker phone. Just a woven black T-Mobile version.

    So basically I have a business and I have something in stock. I offer "2 day shipping" but it doesn't start till I get off my lazy *** and drop it off at the post office 10 days later. O well, that's when I shipped it, you'll get it in two days from then. 12 days later. That's my 2 days shipping. That's not how it works! Lol.

    I need a frigging beer. Haha..

    Is their customer chat no help? I'm really hoping they're aiming ahead of that 7 day figure.

    Glad you called it "Customer Chat" because calling it "Customer Service" would be a huge misnomer! As thegrants82 mentions, try it once and you'll have your answer!

    I ordered a Skip on 9/3. The product page said ships in 1-2 days. So I expected it would ship by the 6th at the latest. Contacted via chat and was told it would be 4-5 business days from when I ordered to when it was received. I gave it until the 10th. Still hadn't shipped. I called support on the 10th, 5 business days from when I ordered and was told they had no information when it would ship. Asked to speak to a supervisor who said it was waiting for FedEx to pick it up (seems they use that line a lot) was told he'd escalate to shipping department and make sure it went out right away. He also said he was sending me a $50 Google Play Gift card for my trouble. Then late on the 11th, I got an email saying that due to demand, the item would be shipping in 7-10 business days. I'm doubtful that will happen and I'm doubtful he'll make sure that I get the $50 Google Play Card he offered to appease me.

    Here's the thing. A company that is as big and has been around as long as Motorola should be able to integrate their inventory with their online store. Shipping estimates should change automatically based on inventory. When the site says ships in 1-2 days, they should know they can meet that commitment. If they don't meet that commitment, they should proactively notify the customer that there will be a delay, not give them two different answers on the two times they are contacted. This is not rocket science. Amazon does it hundreds of thousands of times a day. Plenty of other companies do also. I'm just glad in my case it's a Skip and not a phone like a lot of other people.

    Actually, that's exactly how it works. That's why companies advertise "same day shipping" or state that an item will ship within 3-5 business days after ordering.
