    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.
    Did you receive an email for shipping?

    Out of interest, what date do you have on the WISMO site under "shipped"?

    I hope she didn't open it. Divorsable offence that would be!

    All UK and Germany pre orders are being delivered today by DHL SAME DAY and is being coordinated bi the Irish dhl sameday because microsoft european hq is in dublin.
    Seems ups could not handle volumes and time constraints and refused to deliver.

    Wow! This is plausible, and would also explain why not many have received them yet as we will get them later today!

    Where did you get this info?

    Thanks

    Does anyone really believe ALL pre-orders will be delivered today? I'd love to trust it, but the luck of the Irish hasn't helped me thus far....

    No, not in 3 hours anyway. Nearly impossible. If it actually happens I swear to god I'll never say another Irish joke ever again.

    Here's my story...

    Ordered the 64GB version 25th and it just turned up now, delivered by DHL. I feel bad for those that pre-ordered well before me though. I'm in Central London.

    Box details...

    Nope. Not sure where the info came from but if its from MS then it won't be true! :-)

    If all Surfaces are on the DHL Same Day service then most should be delivery as the Same Day service is a 24hr service! Check the DHL Same Day website.

    Nice one! I ordered the 64gig on 26th, did you get a notification to say if it was shipped? Any correlation between tracking no and order id?

    Thanks

    Does this mean ALL pre-orders or just the ones made on or before 19/10 when the delivery date was either 26/10 or 26-30/10?

    A lot of the info out there says it's for all pre-orders, but it really means it is just for people who were given a specific delivery date. People who ordered 20/10 and later were told 1-2 weeks and have so far not received the 50 voucher compensation etc. I think MS were being more cautious and had stopped making promises by then.

    I fear that this is INCORRECT. Just spoke to DHL, they have not got a clue about MS orders. They can however check if there is an order due to be delivered using your post code. Nothing for me though.

    No correlation between tracking reference and my order number unfortunately.

    I didn't receive a notification email either, it's still showing as 'In Process' on their website.

    It looks like there's a UPS label underneath the DHL one.

    I just spoke to them too and can confirm they don't know anything, nothing set to come to my address etc.

    Also, on the Microsoft website, they have my billing and delivery postcode wrong? what the ****? I never typed it wrong. There's loads of mistakes everywhere!!
