Eorope + EMEA devlivery schedule

I've just talked to the distribution center

 

They handle all Blackberry fulfillment in EU / EMEA so I have the full details now

 

In the UK ONLY - City Link drop the thing off - so give them a call if you're from my neighbourhood

 

For any EU country they are using TNT - so, that's your point of call

 

EMEA is wierd - customs and taxes are involved so they have to do whatever needs to be done to get it to you. They have NO IDEA who will be your specific carrier as they have to deal with all the silly laws

 

Parcels are sent out on an individual basis. It goes DIRECTLY from the people I was talking to just now to YOU via [CARRIER]

 

They started shipping last week and are sending out new consignments daily

 

The people who send them out ain't to blame. The first thing the lady said to me was 'I have an email where you can track you item' <g>

 

Expect no such email unless you get yours in a few months

 

I can tell you that the UK is the distrubution hub for BB (I thought as much - but it's now confirmed)

 

As such you need to factor in travel from the UK to [where you live]

 

All EU / EMEA is being dealt with by the one supplier

 

I got this info by promising to not pass on their name, so don't try asking me

 

I see myself hitting the top of the like list VERY shortly :smileyhappy:

Thanks for info!

 

I really hope they received my e-mail about non-LTE version that is being sent to European developers and who are left with old firmware :smileyhappy: Still waiting for device/e-mail/anything about device to magically appear :smileyhappy:

Re: Eorope + EMEA devlivery schedule

Let's make it simple

 

Yes - I know where they are shipping from - this known as delivery

 

Devlivery gives the device to Joe Bloggs

 

You get a blue box with a phone

Re: Eorope + EMEA devlivery schedule

No need to worry: My DA Arrival Notification mail is from Jan 18th and I'm also still waiting for the LE.

Well, that's two and a half months without development hardware. A couple of days probably won't make it much worse. :smileywink:

There is an old Polish comedy movie "Co mi zrobisz jak mnie zlapiesz". In one of the scenes the very important manager comes to the garage to have his car repaired. He knows guys from the garage and them instantly starts working with his car. One of the customer who is waiting for his car for a month goes to the garage manager and complains - why I have to wait for a month and other guy' car is serviced instantly. So, garage manager explains him that they are doing fine, they must manage their time properly

"If you wait for the 30 days and you must wait one more day, it is only 3% time more. BUT if that guy came today, 8h ago, and he must wait one day, it is 300% more! We cannot do this, we respect the time of our customers!"

@n_jay144

 

Mine got there about two weeks after yours

 

This makes it look like they're doing things alphabetically - I guess your surname starts with J?

 

Mine is Booth

 

The other way they could be doing it is by how long you've been a developer for BB (two years in my case)

 

The Blackburn reciept centre is also the distro point for all EMEA

 

I'll see if I can get the same info out of the company regarding our Dev Alpha Cs later - no promises but it's worth a try

 Hopefuly I won DA-B in one of P-A-T's and is still in my hands for testing :smileyhappy:

 Family name with B and company name with S.

The same in my case.

Re: Eorope + EMEA devlivery schedule

I've got a friend in Germany

 

He's not had his yet

 

I expect most UK are done and EMEA has either arrived or is in the post

 

Devices are shipping from the UK on a daily basis
