    Well, HSN just tonight made the tracking number "valid", despite customer service saying that the same number doesn't work. oddly, it shows shipping billed the 30th. Nothing else. Not a single stop, as if its just been picked up. There is NO way that it sat in a mailbox or UPS store waiting to be shipped for an ENTIRE week. Unless...

    They lied about shipment to appear as if they followed through with their "item is guaranteed to ship within 24 - 48 hours". I was curious, so on UPS' track site, I clicked "track by reference". Typed in my order number listed on the order details page on HSN and entered my zip code. A few days ago this didn't work, but today... Guess what I found:

    Now what are the odds someone else is getting an item shipped to the same exact city with the same exact order id as me shipping from a city a few towns over from a HSN warehouse in Virginia (according to Wikipedia)?

    From what I can gather, it seems maybe HSN printed a label to appear "shipped". My guess is those who bought the device after the initial 400 were not actually in stock, so they were being shipped from Nokia as I initially thought. And since tomorrow is the day that HSN said it should arrive by or before, they shipped it Next Day Air when it arrived state side to make sure it arrived when hsn "said" it would.

    This would explain:
    The invalid number &
    No arrival Friday or today, despite UPS' calculated shipping time being 3 business days
    Billing info being the only thing listed on the tracking number by HSN, despite being a week since shipping.

    I may be wrong, but the evidence is pointing towards this theory.

    Well my UPS number was also updated. Unfortunately, it hasn't even hit a shipping facility yet according to the UPS and HSN websites, only that a label has been created. I think I'm going to return the item once I get it, because I bought it thinking it was a short time deal and that I would benefit from picking it up. HSN, however, made sure I had a long time to think about the purchase while leaving me in the dark. It's been a week and a half, and the only thing I know about the transaction is that they took my money. With everything else, I'm in the dark. They don't deserve my money, even if it didn't cost that much.

    Looks like t- mobile/nokia are redirecting their inventory to complete the orders. I ordered two phones, the earlier order number from 4/26 is not here, but the second one came in last Friday. So much for ordering early, lol.

    go to UPS: Tracking Information and click track by refrence.
    under shipping refrence, copy and paste your order number from HSN's order details page.
    Select United States as country and enter your zip code
    Click track

    It should find your package. Note that its a different tracking number (Nokia and HSN had a tracking number mix up, so technically the numbers shouldn't be even working that HSN gave us.)

    mine is "out for delivery" :)

    I called HSN about the shipping label being shown as just being printed today. I was told its part of the error and to expect it either today or tomorrow. The whole thing is odd, the woman I spoke to even said it. They were very apologetic. Im in NJ so on hoping I get it today. WP7.5 on my focus is getting old quick. I have a bad power button and an unresponsive camera button, haha.

    But alas, most people who have it seem to enjoy it. Good things come to those who wait for HSN to get it together!


    Edit: it left my local UPS at 7:09 today.

    Got the phone from HSN.com but T-mobile refused to unlock it for me since it's not bought from them or their affiliated dealers. Anyone else in the same boat? Anyone managed to work around this and got their phone unlocked? I am talking about Nokia Lumia 521 in USA locked to T-Mobile network.
