I read somewhere that we will get a free case if we pre-ordered, right? I ordered off of this website - does that include my order? Indiegogo has offers for an extra battery, screen protectors and a case so I am not sure what direction to go in. Any ideas what would be best. 

 

I wouldn't hold my breath for the free stuff. OG Pro1 owners were supposed to get a decent case for free (back when pre-orders for that were a thing), they swapped it out for a lame sleeve (was in the box with the phone). The promised free headphones never came. lol

Production does indeed seem to be starting...  

Please stop. You made your points, there are people here who invested in this project knowing that, you are doing a disservice to the intent of the project and to those that have supported this f

Mid to late May now?  Wow.  Really getting tired of waiting.  Just got a notification from AT&T that they plan to shut my entire phone off May 4th.  I am not sure I can wait anymore.

Lol...Okay then, not holding my breath. I think I will just wait and see. Besides, now we have until the end of May so plenty of time. Thanks for the response.

May I ask, how long have you been waiting for the Pro1X?

Anyway, until recently, they only had rough predictions on potential shipping times or even less... there were too many uncertainities.

Now they are starting to share more information simply because the number of potential uncertainities are highly decreased, so this date is mch more accurate than any earlier dates... not because those dates were already elapsed, but because we see FCC certification went through, they state components are arrived, etc, so it seems it is up to the factory and logistics which will determine the actual shipping date of the phone.

True about the lame sleeve, but I got my free headphones.

Wow, I thought nobody have received it.

Anyway, are you a former Keyboard Mod backer?

Yeah, x2.   Still have my Moto Z Play in anticipation of the mod. :classic_laugh:

I am only once. 🙂

That may explain the receipt of free headphones - I mean the very early place in the row, at least earlier than mine. 🙂

As a very early backer I was offered them too. But though sleek looking I knew that I would never use them so politely declined. (I use ATH-ANC33iS)

Actually, I received the headphones also.  🙂 and no, I wasn't a moto mod backer (would have been if I had known before it was cancelled.

Interesting - I don't what is the connection then. 🙂

Interesting. I'm also a moto mod backer (Germany) - and wasn't offered headphones (still love my Pro1 though). I assumed they were limited to England.

...or simply limited to the first few tenths or few hundreds of Pro1 preorders...

Does it matter?  A long time now.

 

That's why it matters. I've ordered my Pro1 in November 2019 and since QWERTZ has been out of stock, I've been "upgraded" to Pro1x. From my perspective, waiting a month or two more makes no difference anymore, but for "normal" Pro1x backers, who are waiting for maybe six months, it's exhausting. I'm used to it now 🙂

I just noticed fxtec website shows pro1x at 899. Indiegogo has it for 849, and the prices used to be less than that. I still remember when this phone was being advertised on the main website for 649. I know inflation, supply chain, etc. But I'm surprised the price went up so much. Especially when you consider the raw components are at least a few years old now...

The price in IGG is for a bundle that includes not only the Pro1X, but also a spare battery and a spare screen assembly (not just the screen, but the frame  it is mounted in).  You have to click to expand the perk box to see the list of what's included.

Additionally, @npatel1050, what's on IGG is not a sale. It's an investment. They don't have to fulfill what you give money for (except if it's outright fraud, ofc). It's investment. You get if it's a success, you get nothing if it's a failure. No regulations on warranty either.

As for their website, it's a preorder. You get the thing ou paid or you get the money back. There's mandatory warranty through these means.

That's just a starting point on how different it is from each of the methods.

Moto Z2 Force. Brand new in a drawer

I was SO close to buying one in the Z series several times, having ordered a few of the keyboards, but was so pessimistic that I persuaded myself to wait until I actually had at the least one keyboard mod in my hands - that proved to be a wise decision....
