Verizon delays shipment of 128GB Google Pixel XL by more than two weeks
posted by Alan F. / Nov 11, 2016, 10:34 PM
Verizon sent our reader an emailed notification on Friday that probably took the air out of his balloon. Instead of getting word that his 128GB Pixel XL had shipped as expected, he received notification that his order has been delayed. According to Verizon, the phone will now ship on November 26th. "Looks like you have great taste," screamed the top of Big Red's missive. Verizon added that the 128GB Pixel XL is so popular, that the carrier doesn't have enough inventory in stock to ship the order on time. Has anyone else received a similar notification from Verizon pertaining to a delay in the shipping of their 128GB Pixel XL order?
We also wanted to point out that even though the phone is supposed to be a Verizon exclusive, it will work with other carriers. You might recall that T-Mobile is running a promotion that will return half the cost of a 32GB Google Pixel ($325) to anyone who has his Pixel activated on T-Mobile. The carrier's CEO John Legere says that the handset has been tested on T-Mobile's LTE pipeline.
Thanks for the tip!

It's always a good problem to have, but they should ramp things up.

I managed to get my XL order in on the play store on October 22 and Google says I shouldn't expect to get it until November 28 or later. I'm really hoping to get it sooner.

Being a Nexus fan i can tell you waiting more than a month for this phone is not worth it. Thats just my opinion, i returned mine and kept my Nexus 6p.

So I have been having the WORST time with phones. I have been a Note person for years now. So of course got the Note 7. Of course it was recalled, the first time. Turned it in, got the new one. Waited to get that before turning in my old Note. You know, just in case. Turned in the old one. As soon as they got ir and the credit hit the account they recall the new ones... all of them, banned on flights, blah blah blah. And now I don't have my old phone to go back to. There were no other phones out I wanted. So beginning/mid October I decided the 128 Pixle XL seems like my best bet, given the circumstances and havi5no choice but to find a new phone. Pre order it. Was supposed to ship on October 28th. And now it isn't supposed to ship until DECEMBER 2ND. Meanwhile I'm stil using this phone that Samsung totally dropped the ball on. I made the mistake of doing the stupid update so it only charges to 60%

If you're serious about getting just stalk google play daily. They've popped up now and then but it's the same two weeks. Most likely Verizon is sitting on them to ensure supply for their Black Friday promo.

I had the exact same thing happen to me as happened to the user in this article. I just got done talking to the service reps at Verizon and they now can't promise me that my new phone will ship before the online order date of 12/26/2016. I am so pissed off at them right now.

Ordered my pixel xl 128gb on 10/18 with a ship date of 11/18.... 11/18 came and called with no information on delay. Called back on 11/21 and guy didn't know why the delay but gave me a $30 credit and a free case and a ship date of 11/25..... 11/25 has come and gone and now my site says 12/26 :/ So i either go and find one at an approved retailer but i will lose the free vr headset or wait....

Ordered mine on Nov. 24 with ship date of 1/6. On 1/6 received the same crappy "good taste" delay notice with new ship date of 3/3. Guess I won't be taking pics with my new phone on my trip next month. Not happy!!!
