Not sure about that priority stuff. I ordered 2 units this week (after your Oct 22 date) and got both of them already. Ordered the first one on Monday and got it Tuesday. Second one was ordered late Monday evening and it got here today (Wednesday). I was pretty pleased with the whole order process on line.

However, I have been trying to get these units from my local retail store since the release date and am still getting the run around from them. Being in a Nextel Partner region really stinks. Local service is non existant. However, ordering on line (from the Telesales number actually) was a quick and painless experience.

I called to verify my order when I read about other peoples backorder issues and the person on the phone said he was looking at hundreds in stock which he had access to on his screen. Odd, but then again it is Nextel. Assume nothing.

Great! I will give you my CC# and my nextel acct# and you can get me one and mail it to me in Massachusetts. I bet we could do this faster than Sprint can give me an ETA on my 4 day old order.

I called three stores today and got widely varying replies when asking about 7100's
One store asked me if I was an exisiting customer, when I asked what difference that made, she told me that they are only selling 7100's as new activations, not upgrades.
Another store saidthey aren't released to the public yet, but to check back in Dec. as they should be out by then.
Lastly a gal who had one in stock and it was being held for a customer that had till the close of business to come and get it. I asked her to call me at closing time to see if he came and got it, she told me she wouldn't do that because that wouldn't be fair to the guy the unit was being held for!!! I didn't even bother to try reason with her.
The thing I love the most is that these people could give a carp less about trying to be helpful... They just say no we don't have them and practically hang up. If I treated my customers like that, I would probably have to get a job at Sprint.

I cancelled my order as soon as i got that backoder email. Then i called my friend to see if he had any 7100i's in his store and he only had one, so he's holding it for me, and i will get it today. I should've just called him in the first place, cant wait to play with this phone.

It looks like everyone had to wait atleast a week. I ordered 2 7100i on the 1st of this month. Hopefully I'll get good news early next week. Will Nextel send you notice when they ship your order or do you have to keep checking? I tried emailing them about that and they never answered me back. With my luck I won't be here when FedEx comes. Looks like I need to get my hands on PocketMac I wasn't aware of the BB/Mac problem until I read it here.

Place my order with Nextel on October 17 through their Telesales 800 number. Called about 9:30 that morning and was told that my order would be shipped late that afternoon (for a Tuesday delivery). When I checked my order status on Nextel.com the order was still pending. Called Telesales on Tuesday afternoon and was told that my order was not processed properly and would have to be reenter. Since it was placed that afternoon it would not be shipped until Wednesday morning (which made no sense to me when they were originally shipping it Monday afternoon for a Tuesday delivery). To make a long story short I received my 7100i Thursday afternoon and had Nextel waive my Overnight shipping charge. I had to BARK just to get them to do that!

I just had to get another one,some goon stole mine and they shipped it 3 day FEDEX. It annoys me when I used to get phones pre merger overnight, they now say 3 days.

They say the backorder is over, but they are having issues with credit card payments and warehouse issues which are slowing up orders.

I called today trying to find out how long they expect to be in backorder and they didn't really answer the question. They just took my order number and said "no you don't have confirmation of shipment yet" (I knew that already). She then said they would contact me via email when the units ship out to me.

There seems to be confusion, but mine was shipped out fast, they just chose slow shipping. I wonder if corprate accounts get priority over regular consumer?
I have a Corp account.

We have huge corp account and 7100i ordered on Thursday early PM has not shown up...it's now almost 1pm ET. When package didn't arrive Friday AM as it should have, I called telesales and they told me that the order was entered incorrectly, that it has to be re-entered, so now it became a Friday order for Monday delivery. . . Fedex has delivered stuff already this AM and still no little Blackberry box . . . . and the saga continues . . . .
