I am on the phone now. The rep says that they are in stock and ready for delivery immediately. I asked, oh, ten times. I am ordering now.

I've been on hold for 35 minutes trying to get an answer. I got the same "backordered" response from Live Help. Will post when I get an answer.

Rapid Satellite has them in stock. Their website reads just received. I called and confirmed that they do have them and I was assured they do. I ordered mine and will be cancelling my BB preorder. I will save over $60 in tax.

The process seems slow. They do not offer overnight shipping. Their website states items will ship 24hrs after they receive the online agreement to terms (which is part of the ordering process).

There web site allows for tracking and order status so I will be able to monitor the order. I can already see my order states pending shipping.

Bottom line is they have them in stock and I am saving $60 in tax . They are an authorized D* dealer and offer a 7 day price match (Price match is just to state they are fair)

Oh yea... their hold time was long.



Be careful their price match policy is pretty damn sneaky, and they won't price match until after you have activated the receiver. Which means you can't return it.

If I get them both I guess I can return one.

This matches what the phone rep told me. When I told her what I was ordering, she said, "Oh, we just got those in yesterday!"

Here's hoping she's right. I double-checked with her about five times. She seemed very confident.

I placed my order around 1:40 p.m. Eastern.

Technically, it's not a pre-order!!1 haha Although despite the phone reps saying it's in stock, I'm leaning more towards believing the live online reps right now.

Yes, they have them in stock right now. I talked to them on the phone. Order online is your best bet, that hold time is a nightmare.

We should be lucky you can't get put in a loony bin for all the insanity going on. People pre-ordering from FOUR different places!!!

Be afraid.

The beat goes on. I hope you get the units when they said you should.
I had the same thing happen to me on the BestBuy roller coaster. Ironically they appear to have the same ship dates as AmSat,and RapidSat...coincidence? I think not.

I am chatting with Beymar right now. She says that the phone representatives are wrong. She spoke with the VP of Rapid Satellite this morning and he told her that they are backordered.

This is what I feared, oh well. Did she say how long the backorder is?
