Dev Alpha returned - how long for confirm receipt?

When you return your Dev alpha how long does it take for blackberry to confirm that it has been received?

I shipped mine back at the end of Jan and I still have no confirmation. UPS states it was received and signed for but that is all I know.

Re: Dev Alpha returned - how long for confirm receipt?

For mine it took a couple of days I got a mail it was confirmed. I sent my device back together with another developer I know (lives a little down the road). we shipped on the same day, they arrived on the same day, but they were confirmed 3 days apart.

The confirmation was about 12 days after it had arrived. But I guess that it was one of the first devices to arrive, because I shipped my device on the 9th of January iirc, so it could be that it is a little slower now.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

I sent mine on the 9th jan, but confirm receipt was given 15 days later. But you need to take in account I gave it in a time where very few developers were. However majority of developers are trying now to send of dev alphas so will take longer than usual.

So if it was 14-15 days in the early days, I would say about 3-4 weeks now, depending on where it was shipped. Because I can imagine that some of the shipping locations will receive more devices than others.

Check the tracking number to see when it gets recieved. You should recieve a confirmation within a few days of the reciept.
