Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Start to panic if I get mine before yours (19th), although someone ordered on the 20 something.

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

 

I'm from Turkey and today Fedex contacted me saying that my playbook is at the customs. They are requesting over 250 USD in total for the customs clearence and only 60 USD of it is tax! what should I do now?
and in the morning I was all excited about it finally arriving..

I contacted TMDIdeas with the same concern (another country, though) and got the following reply:  

 

==================

All BlackBerry PlayBooks will be sent to developers all taxes and duties paid by RIM.  You should not incur any costs.

Thank you,

The BlackBerry Developer Program Team

==================

 

I think you should press the FedEx with this info (maybe they are just trying to fool you and get some money), if no success - contact TMGIdeas (well, you can do it right now).

 

Good luck!

Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Yeah I contacted TMG and they contacted FedEx USA. They opened an investigation, the result of which I hopefully will get today..

Now I really feel like being fooled by FedEx. They are stealing from my playtime! Smiley Happy

The estimated delivery date on the tracking webside is displayed as the destinations local time, so for me it is 18:00 (6:00 PM). I can't imagine the 6 hour difference. Are you correct with your delivery time?

I am sure about the time. I choose 24H clock, and set the time to Europe/Amsterdam (GMT+1)
