    I ordered the Black model on May 16th at 10:30 am at a local Verizon store (but the manager said they were using the SAME ONLINE system that I could use myself - and the one that currently shows "OUT of Stock" ... so zero benefit there.

    I have been "checking the pre-order" status several times per day since then and the "status has now changed to this" ...

    Mine has showed that since Thursday.

    Let's see if they actually ship. Hopefully.

    SHIPPED >>> Picked up by FedEx on Sunday, May 19 >>> Credit Card Charged.

    The BAD NEWS IS - but who cares after all of this - is it is FedEx 2-DAY ... deliver on Wed May 22.

    Called Verizon and they said ... the BLACK was considered "pre-order" so it went with the published FREE 2-Day.

    OH WELL ... but, it's on it's way - OH YES, Verizon CONFIRMED ... IT IS the BLACK 928 !!!

    It gets better - Verizon just emailed me their "official" - Your order has shipped! However, unlike the overnight FedEx I was promised, it now appears to be scheduled for two-day delivery on Wed May 22nd. I called FedEx to see "IF" they might "deliver EARLY" and she said that they have so many packages that they usually hold to the "contracted delivery date".

    Are you guys seeing any movement with your shipment? Mine still says expected delivery for Wednesday but has not moved since it was picked up by FedEx on Sunday. Seems strange.

    SAME with me ... just the kind of bull**** that Verizon is playing.

    1) I ORDERED the Black model at 10:30 am on May 16th - the launch day - from a Verizon store with the store manager's direct assistance
    2) HE SAID, IT WOULD SHIP OVERNIGHT vs. TWO DAY because it was "out-of-stock"
    3) However, instead of "back-order" ... It went into a pre-order status
    4) I called several times over the weekend and BECAUSE IT WAS PRE-ORDER, the Verizon CS reps said they could NOT access it
    5) As you can see below, IT was Picked up by FedEx on Sunday, May 19th - My credit card WAS CHARGED on Sunday
    6) The Verizon shipment paperwork WAS NOT TRANSMITTED until Monday, May 20th at 5 am
    7) SO, NOW IT SITS "apparently until tonight" for overnight delivery
    8) I called Verizon - NOTHING they can now do as it is NOW with FedEx
    9) Called FedEx - NOTHING they can do as VERIZON "has specified" TWO DAY!

    10) And that's the whole story ... at least, the Black model is STILL NOT AVAILABLE LOCALLY at any store

    No PAIN, NO gain ... I have ONLY WAITED for the 928 since LAST SEPTEMBER at a launch event where the Nokia 920 and HTC 8X were announced by the CEOs of Microsoft, Nokia and HTC. ATT was announced for the 920 ... BUT nothing about "exclusive" UNTIL November ...

    And ... rumors, rumors, rumors for the last 6 months ... including "reported" spy shots of the 92x showing up in Verizon's inventory system around CES in Jan.

    Based on the WHITE REVIEWS being "AMAZING" ... what's an extra few days ...

    Matte black ... I was hoping it wasn't gloss black ... so, did you pay extra for overnight?

    Did you order online or at a Verizon store - 2 Day FedEx "is included" standard, so somehow you got free overnight?

    Our "black 928" has been sitting in Memphis at the main FedEx hub since Sunday at 8:32 pm ... FedEx says "it's because" it's 2 Day and they didn't get the shipping info from FedEx until Monday at 5 am ... so it goes out tonight for May 22 delivery = 2 days.

    BTW ... CONGRADULATIONS on getting yours overnight!

    OK, left Memphis ... it's about time ... it "sat in Memphis" for almost 48 frigging hours (since late afternoon on Sunday) - Thanks Verizon for terrific delivery.

    I am dying to hear the "back story" on why either Verizon or Nokia "did not" allow the BLACK model until May 20th ... and apparently BLACK IS NOT available at either the local Verizon stores, Microsoft store, etc. ... but Newegg has Black?

    Finally!!! After ordering the black on Thursday and issue after issue with the order, it has finally shipped. Fedex has it set to be delivered on Friday. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Will also be nice to have a personal phone again after being without for at least a month now.

    Got my BLACK 928 today and fully set it up in 15 minutes - well maybe 30 - because I had to re-sync with Exchange.

    I must say that "pictures just do NOT this this ALL BLACK" 928 justice ... it IS a thing of sheer beauty and looks and feels like a high end sports car. Even beyond a iPhone 5 and ANY Samsung "plastic" Galaxy I have either seen and/or held.

    Those "on the fence" about "black" ... GO for it - so far, ONLY online!

    Yeah ... I called Verizon and they said ... the order says "available BY May 20th" ... FedEx "said" Verizon DID NOT send the "shipping instructions until May 20th" ... so, we met our "2 DAY contract".

    I have to agree, the black looks really really nice. It's incredibly disappointing if they aren't going to have this in store, at least as a display model.

    I got my black one on Friday. I have the white and black version. The black is much sexier and certainly more professional, but you would think that the glossy white back would be slick while holding it. I figured the matte black would be better. The black is actually much slicker in hand and does not have as much grip to it as the white. My black one has the messed up Windows button, so I am trying to decide whether to keep the white one which is flawless or replace the black one.
