New round of Nexus 4 shipments going out to limbo customers

Good news for Nexus 4 users stuck in limbo — those of you who received a confirmation email, but no shipping email. We’ve received enough tips to confidently announce that a handful of shipments are now going out for those of you who ordered the Nexus 4 three minutes after it went live in the Play Store. That 3 minutes may sound small but it was enough to push some of your orders back a full week. On that note, I’ve also finally received a shipping confirmation for my Nexus 4 bumpers (should be here by Wednesday) that I ordered 2 minutes after they went live in the Play Store. Gotta be quick, folks! Anyone else receive their shipping confirmation today?

Thanks for the pic, Jordan!

      You’re slackin, bruh O_o

      • Mitchel White

        I slept threw the buying frenzy :(

        • RozJC

          Don’t worry. So did I..

  • PhineasJW

    Glad there’s some progress.

    And for those that ordered after mashing F5 for two hours. A math quiz to test the education system. :)

    120 mins * (1 week / 3 mins) = …

    • AnthonyCarriedo

      well…all of these units have the dimension of time and (1 week / 3 mins) makes that portion unit-less…depending on units, your answer is 403200 minutes, 6720 hours, 280 days, 40 weeks, or 20 fortnights

  • mtmjr90

    I’m not sure it matters when you placed the order…mine went through after a good 20-25 mins and it got shipped last week=/ Pretty sure it wasn’t first come first serve…

    • Larizard

      why the sad face? your shipped last week!!

      • mtmjr90

        Not so much a sad face as a skeptical/annoyed face. While I’m thrilled I have mine, I don’t like that it’s not first come first serve. I could have done without in this first round (it’s not like my GNex is suddenly garbage) and would have preferred to see Google handle this properly, especially considering I may very well be in the opposite circumstance the next time around…

  • KtMack23

    Mine shipped finally! YEEESSSS

    • Jordan Pfingsten

      I jumped for joy and freaked out when I saw my shipping email. I thought it wasn’t ever coming!

      • Chris Chavez

        I told you to hang in there!

  • Jordan Pfingsten

    I am starting to wonder if these were Processed and Shipped out in alphabetical order. That *could* be one reason that those that ordered an hour after me got the phone shipped out faster.

    • Nathan Bell

      I’m a B… Mine just shipped Monday night, ordered 10:45 am cst tuesday morning. I slaughter your theory ;)

      • Jordan Pfingsten

        You stink xD

  • BigCiX

    Will someone with money buy me one?

    • Chris Chavez

      *pulls out wallet* You want the 4, 10 or both? O_o

      • AnthonyCarriedo

        Decisions decisions. I’ll take all three!

        • AnthonyCarriedo

          What’s with the blank stare?

        • RozJC

          I won’t be greedy. I’ll just take the 10 please? :)

  • frankie

    Really happy for those that are getting a nexus taste… I already rooted mines and at the end of the day ended up having to settle for the 8 gig and it wasn’t my plan but now very OK with that and happy for those that have been waiting to getting it finally getting some cosier.. Enjoy!

    • dreadnatty08

      You’ll be a little bummed when you find your nandroids taking up ~2Gb of that space. ;)

  • huffimus_prime

    Yes! Shipping! Huzzah!

  • troysyx

    Seriously did a 40’s jig when my email came (just about 20 minutes ago)

  • barondebxl

    Mine shipped last friday and i received it this morning. What an incredible phone, the build quality is top notch and the screen, OMG

  • Yoshi

    Mine finally shipped! But they still charged me shipping after they promised they wouldn’t!

  • Jamille Browne

    Still no confirmation on shipping -_- sigh….

  • *Certified_geekā„¢

    How long till they’re back in stock again?? I was one of the unlucky ones.. sucks too.. it was my birthday on the 13th.. really wanted to treat myself to a Nexus 4.. :(

  • wyldtek


  • kimir

    Any chance of seeing it late…? I’m not seeing an email. ._.

  • SparklingCyanide

    got a Shipping Email 12:06am in fact its already in my town, wasn’t even expecting it until tomorrow! I hope I’m home to accept it, busy day for me today… Well I’m happy my Nexus 4 and bumper are FINALLY almost here – D

    • SparklingCyanide

      its arrived, and its Gorgeous!! – D

  • Nathan Bell

    Mine finally shipped last night. Next Day Air, too :)

  • mercado79

    Mine left KY at 2am and is out for delivery already. Can’t wait.

    Also, for those who spent their morning mashing F5, Web watcher worked perfectly for me.

    I had it check the page every 1 minute starting that morning. There. Now you know my secret.

  • Chuck H

    It’s out for delivery, according to UPS.

  • Jordan Pfingsten

    FYI: I see on the UPS Tracking page that I have next day air, which Google paid for.

    • Jordan Pfingsten

      Annnnd it’s here. So much for Fargo being far away to ship to!

  • Scott Schopman

    mine just got delivered! time to get off work ha

  • zifnab

    Nope, still in limbo. I called last night and was told that if I didn’t receive a back order notice my phone would be shipping today. No word yet :(

  • n0code

    Never got another email after the backorder email :( Seems us BO people won’t get in on that batch. Then again I shouldn’t complain as my order went in at 3:00pm EST.

  • B Ankrom

    Out for Delivery… I was in the 3 minutes after launch window… never got a email until late last night when i got the tracking info. I almost canceled the order I was so fed up not knowing if Wallet actually sent my order to Play and not hearing anything for a week. What an effed up mess this launch has been..

  • Jeff Killingsworth

    Mine too was stuck in limbo. I placed my order 4 mins after it went live. My status showed “Pre-Ordered” up until yesterday, the 19th, which it then changed to an estimated shipping date of the 15th. (LOL) I called Google last night and was told orders placed in the first few mins of it going live got messed up some how. He told me that I would receive a shipping email by COB yesterday, which I did. I checked the shipping with UPS this morning to find this:
    “The package was left in a UPS facility. / Package will be delivered next business day.”
    Are you freaking kidding me. Thanks a lot Google and UPS for making this the worst purchase ever with Google. I had none of these issues when I ordered my N1 back when it went live.
