merve0o0: I ordered at 12:30 Thursday. I was told they were on backorder then. I was hoping she meant on backorder until today.


I would have assumed the same. Did they give an ETA on how long the backorder period would be?


Nope I think I will ring in few min.

The guy I dealt with said they were on backorder (as of thursday) and would be "available from 2 November".

I assume that means they are all available today, and it will just be a processing delay

Makes sense, fingers crossed. Haven't seen a shipment email yet

I just spoke to 2degrees. They said the phone is on backorder because of high demand. I ordered on Wednesday as soon as they where available. A bit gutted.

Still waiting for my 128GB code later in month. Almost as exciting as when I got my first android phone, the S1 from Clove tech back in 2010

Just rang 2Degrees to find out what was happening with my order, as I hadn't received an email... Turns out the order was never actually placed, so the lady actioned it then and there. A little gutting as I was super excited to get it tomorrow. 
On a different note - do the phones ordered on plan come with a pre activated nano sim? I only have a micro in my nexus 5 atm.

I notice that my shipping confirmation includes a line item for a "Multi SIM Swap". 

Which is interesting since I am already a 2D customer.  I guess worst case scenario I close my other zero term plan and transfer my number to this one. I am sure this can be sorted out with a trip to a shop if needed.

That is disappointing. Hopefully it's a misread from the sales team...

That's quite disappointing. Re the sim, I just received my multi sim pack separately today.. Which means nano/micro/big one all in one

I was bounced between support and sales this arvo, who said that it was processing and they usually dispatch orders up until 8PM. No mention of backorder.

I think "Poor" is a relative understatement..

 

  • Your phone is processing and will be dispatched today.
  • Your phone is on back order due to high demand.
  • Your phone has been dispatched.
  • Your phone has not been dispatched.
  • It will be dispatched tomorrow (Dubious).
  • Its our distributors fault.
  • Our distributor has emailed all affected customers (Dubious).
  • Oh, your email address is incorrect in our system hmm....

Communication 101!!

  • There was a "Technical issue" and the order was not placed for your phone even though you have been charged for it


I just finished a 30+ min phone call and the outcome was that my order hadn't gone through. So if you haven't received an email about it then make sure you call them.

Did you get an order received email on paying etc? I might need to phone again just to find out what's going on
