  1. Pre-ordered and had my payment in September 10... I know the world is a crazy place but I'm just so tired of waiting. That being said, I'm still not in this batch, so I guess nothing changes. Stay safe keyboard friends.
  2. There once was a man from Ohio While in search for a phone he went psycho He then found a brand new one When he thought that there were none But he did not at first know the logo. Its full keyboard laid out so neatly The potential for typing so clearly F(x)tec they were called They were new from abroad "I must have it!" he exclaimed emphatically. Pictures and videos began to emerge Diligently the man did his research One day his said "Screw it" His budget, he blew it For this phone he decided to splurge. Days turned to weeks, and quickly they grew When his new phone would ship, he hadn't a clue But his excitement didn't fade He knew that one day The clackening would come to him, too. Across the globe the community waited These phone-obsessed loonies, breaths bated While it may take some time I have no reason to whine For when it comes, I will be so elated. P.S. Go away coronavirus, nobody likes you.
  3. Are you a T-Mobile customer directly? I am getting T-Mobile through a secondary carrier (US Mobile) and while I'm pretty sure it will work I haven't heard of anyone with that exact setup yet.
  4. Just to confirm something about my preorder: I ordered/paid Aug 31 (#34xxx, no coupon, so I know I'm down the line with the order position which is fine). My order says: "$696.89 USD charged at a future date for 1 item" but I definitely already paid. I am assuming the "charged at a future date" doesn't actually mean they haven't received my payment yet? (the Status of the order is "Processing"). Thanks for any help! Edit: Glad to see everyone's says the same haha. I assumed it was just poor wording, but the feedback is appreciated!
  5. 34xxx....I think it may be a hopeless exercise in patience to assume I stand any chance of being a part of this order haha Edit: w/payment at the last minute (Aug 31).
  6. @Doktor Oswaldo @Zamasu Let's chill. This isn't fun for anyone watching people bicker (whether it be you two or anyone else, as many people have). I understand this specific thread has gotten completely off its original goal but I can assure you nobody cares to watch an internet fight go on here. We all want the same result, and many of us are frustrated; were cut from the same cloth here. If you have problems: congratulations, you're not alone. If you want to defend fxtec to the your dying minute, happy to hear it. But either way, stop arguing on something that has no value added one way or another for the community at large. Just because your voice is heard doesn't mean you're adding value. Now let's move on.
  7. Yes and no. Erik's reply definitely belongs in here, but he states that the plan has in fact not changed, and all preorders will be sent out by the end of January: "I am well aware :). Chen is in the factory right now, and he expects them to produce all of the pre-orders before the Chinese New Year. The meant to be "big batch" has already been produced, but this time we'll be shipping all of the pre-orders together, not parts of them. Small batches keep our customers happy, but they take longer to get around as it would mean allocating more workforce to the delivery side, multiple times, while right now the priority is to produce all of the pre-orders and ship them all at once. Therefore, the advised deadline "by the end of January" is still very much in place as per the latest director's update." - Erik [Sorry I can't figure out how to get multiple quotes in here from different forums] Fingers crossed & God willing, some day the common man might be so advanced as to have a keyboard attached to his phone....a man only dream. Edit: You are right, apologies. I am probably mixing up messages. Hard to believe since all of the info is so clearly labeled and defined by the company.
  8. As expected, the "Production Status" forum has become absolutely overrun with, to be frank, a lot of complaining and useless messages that bog down important updates for the community. Let's have this forum serve a couple purposes: Let users talk between themselves without bogging down [un]official updates from the development team Gripe about how not having this phone will probably ruin your day, life, marriage, child's life, best friend's birthday party, favorite sports team's match this weekend, etc. Give updates when this phone does come through for users about basic initial thoughts (however maybe a new forum would be best for that as well) I 100% understand people being upset, cancelling, and having concerns. You should! You paid good money for a product and if you don't feel satisfied with the [current] outcome you have every right to complain and take an action to cancel your order. However, griping to gripe and causing a ruckus isn't helpful for anyone. Keep it clean. All of us; users, devs, EVEN ERIK, are humans: be nice. Let's move internal discussions and responses to Erik's updates here, and let the other forum be a place for actual, helpful information. Like everyone else, I have my concerns but my excitement outweighs them. I look forward to having this product as soon as possible. Good luck team, we're all rooting for you.
  9. The device has reached the FCC for approval! Below are a few links that will be most intriguing to the general audience (however MANY more documents are available at the main link). Enjoy, and get excited! FCC General Phone Link Internal Photos External Photos Manual
  10. I am eagerly awaiting any updates (just like everyone else here) but I can definitely say I'm not worried. Life happens. I would much rather have a couple week delay (or more honestly) if it means they aren't shipping out something with terrible flaws that they knew they could fix with just a little more time (obviously there will be some flaws still, and you can't chase perfection because then delays would be forever, but you get my point). Also, I was wondering if once the product for pre-orders gets shipped, will the status of the order switch from "Processing" to "Shipped"? I would imagine it will, but I'm curious if any knows anything different.
  11. I love that this topic has been picked up so quickly, so thank you to those who are contributing (especially EskeRahn and Waxberry). My main driver for this topic was that, unlike other major brands, F(x)tec doesn't have hundreds of millions in advertising budget or an established market presence already. I would imagine most people on this forum are already sold on this phone, and that's wonderful. However, if the only people to order the phone are people on this forum, that's a problem. Additionally, search engine traffic is a good goal, but (especially here in the US) I had never heard about it until press from MWC, and that's only because I went actively searching for a keyboard phone other than a BB. I already know the moment I have the phone in my hand, and the first time I slide it out to send a message it will immediately grab people's attention, but any buzz and info that can continue to be shared prior to release is only going to help. It's a silly analogy, and maybe not 100% relevant, but you don't want to be a Van Gogh; you want your product to be worth something before you're gone. I wish this team all the best, and if you ever need someone to test the waters and be a rep in the US, I'm here to help!
  12. Like (hopefully) everyone here, I am extremely excited to see this device come to market, and hopefully succeed and lead to new devices for this company! That being said, one of the most important factors in getting a device like this up is more consistent interaction with your marketplace (specifically the people on your forum). Even if the posts/forum replies from an inside "moderator" of sorts were short, more consistent and timely updates would give me more confidence in this team, and therefor their product. I look very much forward to seeing this company succeed; take advantage of your fans here and give us updates to help spread your ideas and get more people excited about what you're doing!
