Hello everyone I was wondering when my account could be activated I ordered July 2 and have heard through the grapevine that it takes about a week or two to activate so I'm wanting to know how much longer I have to wait

@Haqus76 It all depends on the rate of activation that they can keep up with. Right now they are backlogged and are activating orders from May 18th. 

 

Two weeks ago, they were activating a dismal 1-2 days of pre-orders a week.

Ex: On the week of 6/22, they hoped to that by 6/29 they would have activated everyone up to May 7th. On 6/29 they announced that in the next week they hoped to get everyone up to May 8th. This means that every week they only processed 1-2 orders a week. This was due to a delay in their suppliers and other third parties. (Notice they did not change the dates on their website, they are selling a product knowing they cannot deliver at anywhere near what they say they can). 

As of 7/6/ they are doing much better. By 7/6 they were supposed to activate all orders to May 8th. It seems that they have and are forecasting that by 7/13 they should be getting all orders before May 18th activated. This seems to indicate that they are doing around 10 days of pre-order activations done a week. So lets use this rate to make a calculation about when you will be activated. 

Forecast:

  • By 7/13 they will be at May 18th
  • By 7/20 they will be at May 28th
  • By 8/3 they will be at June 7th
  • By 8/10 they will be at June 17th
  • By 8/20 they will be at June 27th
  • By 8/30 they will be at July 6th (you should be activated by here)

If we use the calculations above, you should be activated by August 30th.

(Supposing to further delays)

If you did not expect such a delay, you are not alone. I ordered on May 26th and it said I would be activated by June. I waited and June came, no activation. I waited until July, no activation. I am hoping that by 7/20 I may be activated.

I also activated on July 2nd and i hope they can activate orders faster because I really don’t want to wait until august, but if I need to, so be it

This is false. OP is from Santa Clara and you replied with the forecast from New York.

 

@Haqus76, you should be activated this week.

@Rvega47 , @TenThousandImmortals statement should apply to you, unfortunately.

 

I ordered July 10 from Santa Clara and am expecting it next week.

Update: I ordered it from Santa Clara July 10th and was just activated this morning, July 20th. Works really smoothly and my internet isn’t great.
