    I was hopeful that mine would be there when I got home from work yesterday. If it was sent last weekend USPS priority mail over the weekend, certainly by Friday I will have it.
    That's what I'm hoping for too, but I'm equally prepared for disappointment, given how things have gone so far...

    Here's my thoughts knowing how shipping systems work. They probably actually sent the orders to the warehouse Friday. Possibly later in the afternoon. I'm pretty sure these people don't work on weekend so I suspect they were closed. Monday, they started getting the orders into USPS for them to pick up. USPS won't start picking them up till the next day. So now you got Wed, Thurs, Friday. So people may not start seeing first set of shipment at earliest Friday, maybe even Saturday. This of course is all speculation for the early ones. Which in my case would make sense when she told me 2-2 1/2 weeks for me.

    Well, I just called and the very nice lady said they had my online submission, but not my paperwork. I mailed that off exactly 2 months ago yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't pay heed to the instructions to make copies of everything, so I'm out of luck. Oh well, I guess I have no one to blame but myself. I'm still incredibly pissed off at the situation. I think the Surface 2 is more in my wheel house anyway, so up to ebay my 2520 goes.
    I have the forms digitally if you want to re-send them. You just need your info, and I'm sure whoever your purchased it from can reproduce a receipt.

    Check this out: Buy Nokia Power Keyboard Case for Lumia 2520 online at John Lewis

    They are now in stock at John Lewis in the UK. Looks like they got something before the US for once, haha. I have a feeling it has to be soon. Lets hope we get these things by the end of the week.

    I called the phone number as well and was told the same information. I will say with the winter storms that came thru Friday, and the beginning of this week most of Texas shutdown at least government agencies that were not providing health care services were closed. I doubt they were actually picked up any earlier than yesterday when things opened back up for normal business.

    Folks, I know I am going little bit off topic. Sorry for that. If I buy a no-contract Nokia 2520 from the Microsoft Store, would I be stuck with a monthly plan from AT&T which I have to call AT&T and cancel? I am just suspicious of AT&T that they would start charging me and then, if I cancel the subscription, the tablet will stop working. Also, would I ever be able to switch to a different carrier SIM ever? Why do they always say "Buy Nokia 2520 AT&T" or "Buy Nokia 2520 Verizon". Why can't they just sell a "Nokia 2520 with 4G LTE capability"? Why do I have to give my information to AT&T if I don't want a data plan?

    I bought mine on an installment plan, as they told me they can't sell these things SIM free for the first two months that they're out. However, the atypically nice AT&T employee told me how to get out of the plan within a month; I just paid the tax when I first bought the tablet, waited till the first bill came up, then asked to accelerate the payment and give them the rest of the full price all at once. Took a lot of talking, but it worked.

    Now then, back on topic-- keyboard! i no haz one. D:

    For those in the UK, were you able to go into a John Lewis store and pick up a keyboard today? Did they have any display units? Anyone able to get their hands on one and can share anything with us?

    I highly doubt the keyboards shipped on Friday as no one in the US has received anything yet. Perhaps they're doing what Apple, et. al, usually does with their products where they ship them early but make the postal carriers hold the shipments until the official release date to deliver? Of course, Nokia hasn't announced any release day, so I'm not sure about that. Let's keep our fingers crossed for tomorrow or Saturday. Has anyone called the 877 number recently and press the lady on the phone about tracking, or whether or not they actually shipped? I would, but I've already called so often, I think they remember me by name. xD

    Thank you. I still have a few blank forms as I printed off some extras. The problem is the bar codes from the side of the retail box. I just cut them out and mailed them instead of copying them. They need either the actual bar codes, or a copy of them.

    It's fine, mine sold on ebay for $405. I'm happy. Back to the Surface 2, which for me was an infinitely superior device.

    Another day, another...uhh, waiting session, I suppose. I doubt anything'll come up today, but I'll try and call before they close this time to see if there were any new developments with shipping.

    I still believe in my initial statement that things *may* start being delivered today or tomorrow. There was bad weather in Texas Tuesday that could had delayed. We'll see. I'm hopeful but not holding any breath.

    I bought mine at the Microsoft store. I did not have to get a data plan at that point. I did later on when I wanted it. The ATT and Verizon designation is because they both use different cellular technology and aren't interchangeable.

    The supervisor at the 877.906.6542 number states they are receiving about 200 a day from Nokia. They only shipped out 20 last Friday. They do not have tracking info for the orders shipped this week, they hope to have the info early next week. He said he would not know how many were shipped this week until he got that tracking list. They are bring shipped Priority Mail Signature Required. A week ago the woman that answered the phone told me "you were one of the first... you should receive by end of next week". Today I called and received a 'we have no info, we don't know if they are shipping in the order received'. I asked for a supervisor and got a call back. He said I was #1283 on the list and my keyboard should ship by mid February and had not yet shipped.

    Verizon keyboards are NOT being shipped as they won't work with 2520 tablets without over the air firmware update. Just got this information. Writing up at Nokia Lumia 2520 Verizon Free Promo Keyboard Orders on Hold | Barbs Connected World as I receive it.

    Yep I'm convinced I made a bad choice buying the 2520 and passing on the Surface 2. This has been such a bundled mess of a release from Nokia that's its to point of not caring anymore. I knew I shouldn't had bought a carrier branded Tablet (AT&T).

    Why should a problem with Verizon tablets affect your (or my, for that matter) AT&T one?

    Otherwise, yes, this is turning into a complete cluster**** and I am rightly frustrated. I can't pull out now, though, I've spent too much and can't very well spend it all again on a Surface. I'll just keep waiting.

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo. I work every week day during the full post office hours, and most saturdays I'm gone as well. Oh well, leave my postal worker a $5 and have him put it in my door.

    I'm constantly stuck at school/work most of the day-- would it be possible for one of my parents to sign for it if they're home when it shows up?

    Well, that's good at least. Course, if everyone's at work I'm probably gonna have to pay a visit to the post office the next day. Whenever the damn thing finally decides to show up, that is.

    I'm beginning to lose hope of having this thing in time to work on any midterm assignments of mine with it.

    Its not about VZW, but 1. The release of this tablet and 2. The fact that even with window tablets, carriers have control over updates. I mean really? A freaking update from VZW for a window tablet for keyboard firmware is complete asinine. It makes me fear that the ATT version is on the same boat if they don't want to update firmware. I was very hesitant to buy it when I could have had the Surface freedom. Why I don't care for LTE Tablets and giving control to carriers for a product I bought. Sadly I went against my better judgment cause I love this tablet.
