    Even though it said it would ship in ~3 weeks I got a UPS tracking number this morning. I'm excited!!

    Does anyone know where they ship from?

    That's pretty exciting! I just ordered mine on my lunch break, hopefully it'll be here next week, despite the 2-3 weeks shipping time notice.

    I have to laugh... you know they are just covering their collecteve a**es based on the order/shipping debacle when the original S3 came out. But I'd say, they just created a very happy customer, so it is a smart move on their part.

    I posted this in another thread as well, but I think it bears repeatings.


    When a label is generated through one of the UPS systems it creates a tracking number there on the spot. If you check the tracking it will probably just say manifest scan, billing information received, or no information found. That just means a label has been made, IT DOES NOT MEAN YOUR ITEM HAS SHIPPED. . Once you see an origin scan, pickup scan or, location scan that means that UPS physical has the package and it is on its way.

    Sadly, I know the UPS process all too well thanks to the ease of ordering from Amazon.com. Typically the tracking number is created within a day or two of shipment - I don't think I've ever seen one created weeks in advance.

    Congratulations ... I ordered mine the very first night at around 2am and haven't seen anything yet; mine just shows as "IN PROGRESS" in the Order History page and I've heard nothing from UPS yet.

    Yeah, me too but wasn't the overnight shipping close to $100? I thought about it briefly then decided that was a bit steep for me. plus, annoyingly, it's taking TWC a week and a half to get out here with my cablecards.

    Yeah, the TCF Store is receiving a pallet full of these today. In fact, they've probably already arrived.

    Huh thats odd. When I asked my local Cox guys about getting an M-card they said "well we have only installed 1 of these so far."

    I said "Well then I guess if you want to use me as a training tool then I would be up for that"
    They then wanted to come right out! free install to boot!

    Same here. Actually...orderd online this morning for pick-up, and picked it up on my lunch break. They were showing "out of stock" a short time after I bought mine, though.
