    Is there a pre-order going where you get the continuum dock bundled?

    Wow, that was more difficult than expected. Tried first in Firefox and it tried to add 529.99 with 9.34 (expedited shipping) and it made 627.66! Support could only suggest (after 25 mins) trying another browser, so I tried with Edge and the site bombed out, they said there are issues with the store and Edge so could I use IE11....so did that and the site then duplicated the order and pre-authorised my card twice...they've said they have cancelled one, but it won't be immediate....
    If I was a floating buyer I would have given up and gone elsewhere....

    Yes, the maths seems a bit off there, doesn't it?

    On my invoice, I have:
    Shipping - 7.78
    Subtotal - 449.44
    Sales tax - 89.89
    Total - 539.33

    It looks to me that your "subtotal" is the cost with VAT applied, and then tax has been applied again. Your sub-total should be 449.44, same as mine. You have more postage though, are you in Jersey, where the tax is different?

    Looks like the preorder has closed already or they have sold out.

    Oh, received pre order email 3:30am, just saw it now, went to order and just says 'email me when available' bummer! Hopefully it'll be available in waves throughout the day so the site doesn't crash or something!

    No, straight UK. They've just mixed at matched what is VAT incl and not, then just added VAT on again I think. I wonder if that is why they have taken them back off pre-order, not stock management, but that the web-coding was knackered.

    Ok, just wondering why you got charged more for shipping than me. Looks like your shipping cost has also had tax applied (20%).

    There is also the option for via quidco at 5% which is 20 discount as well.

    Yeah I'm still deciding whether to pre order it or not. I'd like to feel like I'm getting s good deal by trading in my old phone or getting a dock etc, plus I might want to see one in real life before pulling the trigger.

    Decisions are hard.

    Why aren't we getting the dock bundled in UK?

    The free dock offer was on the MS preorder site yesterday. Seems to have vanished today. Only the white is currently available to preorder too.

    I'm gonna wait this out a bit till i can read some reviews, and MS up their topcashback rate or a reseller has a discount code offer - i will snap when it's available under 480.....

    Further to my post above...WOW the Microsoft Online store is flaky and the customer service poor. My (Microsoft store site created) duplicate order is still not apparently fully sorted. Microsoft CS are saying just wait and hope the pre-authorisation just goes away, even when sent the information saying that they have to do something as provided by Paypal they keep coming back with the same old wait and hope. Paypal are that exasperated by the situation that they have called Microsoft to try and sort it out (they actually called me to tell me this, which if you know Paypal you will be aware that actually getting to speak to a real person is rare). Yesterday I checked the Microsoft store site and found I had "No orders were found", which they claim is a mistake and I do still have an order on their system, its only the website that is wrong...it is just a farce from such a large company.

    Ordered mine through Clove which was linked from the MS website.
    They've just confirmed delivery for December 3rd - with 35 of 'extras' (a 20 voucher and a skin)

    Well, I've now cancelled my pre-order with Microsoft as they have been so staggeringly inept. The final final straw was when I pointed out the Amazon were now selling them for 470 incl priority shipping, and they tried to say that they were selling it for 449 and couldn't understand when I said that their price was excluding tax and delivery and Amazon's was inclusive.

    Yeah I'm liking amazon for their service at the moment. I'm hoping they ship the phone before the 12th though!
