I ordered ship to home as well hoping to get it sooner than pick up in store. I was given the initial text right after preorder and I should have been one of the first to preorder as I did it right when available. I have tried to follow up on any more updates but no one seems to know anything other than the order has been placed. I also find it frustrating that I cant find any status on myrogers page either. They should at least show me that I placed an order. Hopefully I hear something soon as I am away next week and would like to be around when it is shipped. I dont suppose anyone else received anymore info after they did the ship to home option?
Also preordered asap on launch day (128GB Panda XL) for ship to home. Got an email that day that basically just said "your upgrade has been processed", and then a text on Oct 18th saying "thanks for reserving, your phone and Home mini will be arriving as early as Nov 15" which is still prettttttyyyy vague.
Honestly I think next time I'll do ship to store, or buy straight from Google, just so I have some visibility on the process. I assumed ship to home would be easier, and potentially faster, but it's just kind of been frustrating as there's zero transparency and isn't treated the same way at all.
Oh well. Now I know for next time.
Exciting news. I just got called from the store I shipped it to. The phone is there, however I cant pick it up until the 15th because that is the release date. This day and a half wait going to kill me 😞
