    Ordered 2 822's both on Nov 26. on two different accounts. One is supposed to be delivered Dec 4. (Gray), the other (Black) is still awaiting inventory. This is surprising they haven't been able to deliver these faster than this.

    Got mine yesterday. Its white and I must admit owning this phone is FUN. I own an Android phone too and it just isn't nearly as interesting. WP8 is great and when the apps catch up it will only get better.

    i ordered one grey and one black on friday and am still waiting on inventory. Can't complain since they are essentially paying me $200 to take the phone. I should be able to keep my unlimited data as well ;) can't wait til they get here....

    Be careful and double check before you activate the phone. The only way to keep unlimited data is to buy the phone at full retail off contract and then activate it to your account. Unless you have some idea in place like activating it on one line on your family plan that doesn't have unlimited data and transferring it over to the unlimited data line, you will most likely lose your current plan. All of the free 822 deals are for subsidized phones and you need an unsubsidized to keep unlimited.

    Ordered a black 822 on 11/27 and am still "awaiting inventory". Do you think a load of black 822's are sitting in some cargo hold waiting for the dock worker strike to get over with?

    I guess I got lucky getting mine. Hopefully this means there's a decent enough amount of demand for them.

    I ordered a white one on Friday, and I just got a notification that it will ship today.
    So the phone I ordered on Black Friday I received one week later on the 30th. It has a memory card issue (won't read any SD cards) so now it needs to be exchanged. My exchange order went in yesterday the 7th. The status on the site is "processing the exchange" with estimated shipping date TBD. Not sure if the $100 gift card is worth the hassle of not being able to walk into a brick and mortar store for an on the spot exchange....

    Ordered the Grey and White on Dec 1. White showed up on Dec 4. Grey still says "awaiting inventory", on Wal-Mart's site it went from a "3 to 5 day to ship", to "1 to 2 week to ship" and now the Grey isn't even listed on their site anymore only the Black and White are listed. Hopefully this is do only to the high demand although other stores seem to have the Grey still in stock. Guess I will have to live with all the problems with my current Android phone while my wife enjoys her nice new White 822.

    I ordered a grey 822 from Walmart on Dec. 1. Got update email on Dec. 7:

    "...We are normally pretty good at predicting our inventory but the demand for the Nokia Lumia 822 Grey - 4G LTE even surprised us.

    Thanks again for shopping with us. Your phone will be on its way to you soon. ..."

    Still waiting for another update.

    I got the same email. I tried chatting with a walmart rep today, but that was pretty much worthless. They have no idea when they will get the grey shipment in. At least I got him to upgrade my shipping to next business day for free :s

    Is anyone else waiting for a Grey Lumia 822 from wally world? I really want the grey, but am growing impatient and tempted to just get the black. Should I keep waiting?

    UPDATE: just refreshed the order tracking page and the status now says "Carrier Approved" instead of "Awaiting inventory". This could be a good sign!!!

    Just received my Carrier Approved email also at 12:18 CST. For my wife's White 822 it only took them any hour and a half to send the email with the shipping info hopefully it will be that fast again. I should have done the same as wingman700 and chatted them in next day for free. Oh well if it ships today it should be here on Monday, Tuesday at the latest. I will have to refrain from chucking my Android phone across the room until then. Although that probably wouldn't hurt it because it is in an Otterbox Defender series.
