    Thanks :) Pretty excited to be honest. Had a Moto X 2014 Pure, but the battery life was terrible. I then bought a Lumia 640 XL, man I loved that phone, it was awesome. However it was pretty slow compared to my Moto X. Then I bought a Nexus 6P. Fantastic phone! Seriously! Awesome camera, blazing fast. Marshmallow on it is super quick. In the end though, I kind of missed the Windows UI... so I returned my 6P today and managed to order a 950 XL... Didn't think I would be able to order one so quick :)

    It was a bit weird actually. I had the 950 XL in my cart, and when I pressed checkout, it gave me an error saying it was no longer in stock. I checked again in a few minutes and thankfully it went through. Seems like they are doing a few at a time or something.

    I wonder if a few of these today were cancelled pre-orders and ones that had failed payment validation. Seems such a short window of availability for new stock.

    I have had mine in my cart on one computer and i guess i just need to keep pressing complete order :)
    I just have to remember to refresh the discover deals 5% cash back every 2.5 hours (expires after 3 hours)

    Funny thing though.... on a different computer, i dont have anything in my cart - no 950XL and no other accessories that im ordering also.. you would think that if they can sync our emails, messages and reminders between devices, that they can sync our carts also? Yes, im signed in with the same microsoft account on both... this is how amazon does it for me... no matter where i am logged in, the cart shows the same items....

    white 950XL ordered with discover cash back 5% and the wireless portable battery charger too.... so i can use it on the go if required....

    and yes, the credit card has a pending transaction as is the case with Discover anyway...

    seems to - now i am constantly checking order status!
    and i will ensure that my credit card company is told to authorize and not to deny funds... dont want to have any excuse for a cancelled order...

    did you get a ship date?
    i didnt... still shows "coming soon" on my confirmation and in the order history...

    I've been checking my order status like crazy as well :) No ship date yet, it says 'in process' under order status but in account.microsoft.com, it says 'complete'. I am guessing it will ship soon, well... I hope it does anyways.

    I ordered last night. I ordered using two different credit cards from two different companies. Hopefully MS doesn't cancel this time. I also *should* have one on hold at my local store when I get back in the country on Sunday afternoon.

    Went and picked it up at the store today. Interesting though... the one I ordered last night, MS already charged my card. I bet those waiting for Dec 11th get a nice surprise this year!

    "ADD TO CART" keeps going on and off. soon as i see it regardless of color i try to order. just about 2 hours ago i tried to order white but during checkout kept saying error or something and then out of stock. i am now sitting infront of my PC all day waiting to order. i went to the store but they said it is out but they don't have any to sell, just pre ordered ones for pickup. asked the sales guy when they expect new ones to come in he just went , " we have nothing, we wont have anything i dont know"

    everyone knows the Oneplus One invite system was annoying but atleast when you got an invite you had 24 hours to buy it. with this one you have to keep waiting and then you see add to cart only to be told out of stock. they could just change that email me when available to " reserve me one and email me so i can buy it". my first windows phone experience is not going very well

    When I did it, I already had the color I wanted in my cart and payment, etc. set up. I just kept the final checkout window open, and periodically hit checkout until it finally went through. Usually the email is sent too late I think.
