    Well... mine shows:

    Surface with Windows RT
    Charge 18/10/2012
    479.00 GBP

    FedEx
    Charge 18/10/2012
    0.00 GBP

    FedEx
    Charge 18/10/2012
    0.00 GBP

    Surface with Windows RT
    Charge 18/10/2012
    479.00 GBP


    And all of them are marked as settled, even though I have ordered only one Surface (which by the way I haven't received yet)... In reality 479 is reserved on my account.

    Just registered to tell you guys this... here's my post from XDA:



    To add to the above post, I was told the surface itself is shipped by FedEx, any Accessories are shipped by UPS.
    I think Ballmer should sack whoever is in charge on the UK (and Euro) MS Stores.

    Microsoft has made a great product that is being (in some cases has been) ruined by not only the mistakes (which happens) but also the crap service and the how the mistakes have been dealt (Which is maybe number 2 worst customer help right after Dell that i have dealt with).

    If Microsoft treat simple supply chain management and delivery like this, with a lax attitude, no communication and contempt, then I wonder how they treat software security matters.

    Mine also shows doubled transactions, I just edited it in my prevoius post for more clarity puproses. This is how it looks unedited:

    Surface with Windows RT
    Charge 18/10/2012
    559.00 GBP

    FedEx
    Charge 18/10/2012
    0.00 GBP

    FedEx
    Charge 17/10/2012
    0.00 GBP

    Surface with Windows RT
    Charge 17/10/2012
    559.00 GBP

    And indeed my card registered transaction the day i preordered Surface, three days later it was cancelled and my money returned to me, then on friday my card registered same transaction again. At least they gave me back my money before they charged me again.

    I have just received a phone call from DHL at East Midlands Airport (their local hub).

    They called to let me know that they are delivering my Surface this afternoon around 6pm and wanted to check there would be someone at the delivery address (my work) to receive the package or whether I would like to re-arrange for delivery tomorrow. I told him I would wait at the office until it arrives!

    The guy said they are doing all the Surface deliveries in the East Midlands and wouldn't be arriving in Nottingham, where I work, until late afternoon.

    I wonder if your area is getting the surfaces that were sent direct from the factories in china or if UPS/Fedex dont deliver in your area?

    Mine has just this minute arrived - a little later than the "before 1200" delivery time shown on the UPS site, but it's finally here - woohooo (also ordered the HDMI adaptor and that arrived at the same time in jiffy bag).

    Its looking like another day without a surface. Assuming they dont turn up, how is everyone going to deal with MS support? This will be the second broken promise on delivery dates.

    Looking for answers from MS support is like banging your head against a wall, they seem to know less about what's going on than we do, most support staff don't even seem aware of the shipping date confusion and the email that was sent out regarding that.

    It's frustrating, but personally I feel all I can do now is wait, and learn from this experience not to order from them again. Fingers-crossed that future Surface hardware makes it to other retailers in the UK.

    Hopefully this is the case, the in Leicester, so hoping delivery is made today here.

    I think people are too busy ripping their Surface from the packaging to come back on the forum with measurements.

    I saw a UPS truck in Eastleigh today and phoned home with instructions NOT to leave the house all day! Still nothing though.

    Where did you receive it and how did you manage to track it?

    Just heard that my Surface got delivered (London SW8) - it was ordered on the 17th Oct.

    Of course, the WISMO site doesn't show indication that it's been delivered. But my wife assures me that she actually has it with her now.
