I just got the following email from CS....


I'm sorry we didn't have the chance to finish our conversation.

I've checked the availability for Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE Wireless, and can confirm that it's now back-ordered. I'm sorry about this delay--we certainly didn't expect this would happen.

Although the shipping method is faster, it'll still take some time to get the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE Wireless. As soon as we receive more stock, we'll ship your order and send you an e-mail to let you know.

If you'd rather cancel your item, I understand. To do so, visit the link below and click the "Need to cancel an item?" button:

I hope this helps. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Hello Nimblem, Thanks for sharing your frustration as well. Have you received any recent emails confirming the ship date of today?

Much like Barbara I preorder with the ship date of today only to find out it wont be shipping till next week. I didn't get a email or anything until I called.... I am fairly upset as well.... after I was disconnected I called back and and was told by a new person that it would still go out today...... I am confused and disappointed too.....

What about the 50.00 a year 4G? Is that something you sign up for after? And any info on what happens after the year is up?

I pre ordered my Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9GB 4G on September 7th and my ship date was to be today, Nov 20 and arriving tomorrow, Nov 21. I did not receive a confirmaiton email today regarding the shipping. I called Amazon and was told that Amazon ran out of Kindles and that my Kindle was not available yet. I spoke to another Amazon rep who informed me that, if I ordered a Kindle today, the latest it would ship would be Nov 26th however, my ship date--even though I preordered it the day after it was posted on the Amazon site--is listed as Nov 29th. I am very disappointed with Amazon for not honoring my very early preorder date and also, for not informing me before today that the product was not available--very poor customer service from a company that has been wonderful to deal with in the past

Hmm.. Amazon shows mine shipped yesterday for delivery today (Friday). UPS does not appear to agree :-)

Mine says Nov.21-29th. Super Saver Shipping. I ordered on Oct. 5th. Sure hope it gets here before I leave for winter vacation.

Ordered kindle fire and a leather case on oct 13th with 2day shipping and schduled to deliver on the 17th.. However my Kindle was shipped on the 14th at 10am with an updated scheduled delievery of nov 16th... and my case was shipped same day(14th) at about 6pm with a schedule delivery of nov 15th ... Both with UPS.... On amazon i have a serial number listed and a extended warranty number listed as well. At first i was thinking i would be getting a kindle without a case, now im getting a case with out a kindle......But thats ok i can deal with that......

Did you use standard shipping or supersaver shipping?! If it was supersaver then that may be the reason.

Posted on Nov 14, 2011, 10:30:06 PM PST
What's the point of pre-ordering? I ordered mine a minute after it went live, and my ship date is the 17th. People who ordered after me are getting theirs tomorrow.

Got a UPS tracking number for mine. Delivery estimate: Nov 15. UPS tracking number is already in their system and in transit.

Woohoo! Just got an email that mine was shipped today - but my delivery date is the 18th...I didn't opt for ON shipping. I ordered it on 10/5. Life is good.

Posted on Nov 14, 2011, 11:54:03 AM PST
Mine was ordered the first day they were available, and I opted for Free shipping. According to Amazon, I should have it via USPS on Friday, the 18th. Going by past experience, I wouldn't be surprised to see it on the 17th. It's one reason we never pay for expedited shipping, we usually get stuff in 2-3 days anyway.

Yay! Mine shipped out today! It should be here on the 16th now instead of the 17th. HAPPY ME =D

You have 90 days to buy a square trade warranty which is cheaper and a better deal. I paid 20 for a 3 year accident warranty. They post promo codes on here all the time. I bought 3 warranties through them last yer and they were all 50% off.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2011, 12:54:50 PM PST
pretty sure you can add the warranty within the first year, believe I have received emails from Amazon on the previous kindles as the warranty approaches expiration.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2011, 8:14:53 AM PST
When I updated mine to faster shipping it basically re-placed me on a list and the faster shipping pushed back the delivery date! Not fair!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 12, 2011, 6:05:03 PM PST
yep...I'll be surprised if I don't get mine on the 16th even though it says 17th...I get my Prime shipments earlier too. By the way....what a great new book 11/22/63....!!!

I live in Port Orchard, WA and paid for 2 day shipping. It says it will come on the 17th.

Posted on Nov 12, 2011, 10:28:56 AM PST
Updated mine 3 days ago to next day shipping. Now it says by November 16th. I've never been more excited for a gadget and it's release date (except for my Xbox 360). Lets Go Amazon!!!
