    Look at that, the phones are already starting to fly off of the shelf. People are starting to hoard them to, to try to corner the ebay market. Apple, you better sleep with one eye open!

    Razer are so good at this.

    Step 1: create the hype (the initial mysterious announcement)

    Step 2: announce & make the item exclusive (can only pre-order at one place, and can only order direct from razer in 2 weeks)

    Step 3: make people talk (all these pages and drama - all publicity is good - regardless if its bad it doesnt affect razer as its the third part that is having the issues

    Step 4: release and make people wait ages to receive

    works every time

    I heard from staff there would come interesting case in the future though, don’t know exactly when or which kind, chroma case would be awesome, anyway I’m sure it’ll be pretty cool, just keep your eyes;)

    Lol well I guess nothing works anymore xD someone on twitter said they managed to do it with a Barclay card so was worth a shot lol guess we're just gonna have to wait.

    Honestly can't see people making a profit on them tbh not sure why people are buying (or why they're allowed to) that much.

    I don't know. Look at stuff like the mug holder. It's value skyrocketed from "free" to $500.00 dollars a pop! And all it does is hold coffee! :big_grin_:
    Imagine if there was an artificial shortage of the phone? It'll be like one of these scenes you see happen at the stores during Black Friday!

    While it's true the mug holder did shoot up via third party it was never released to the public via purchase if it was if wouldn't sell for so much.

    As for black Friday it's just insane the way people get on can't thank the Americans for giving us that lol

    think about it. Everyone is paying £600 for each handset and they are not even guaranteed to get the product at a specific date. I magine how much money is being taken up front without any product being handed over....

    on the 17th they can just say that due to high demand you will get your handset "as soon as there is availability". ...then just make you wait.

    they will obviously offer you a refund but most will not take it as they dont want to lose their place in line to get the phone.

    friggin genius.

    well i managed to pay on Three's UK website using my Mastercard.

    Dont think its a barclays thing, just think it is Visa who its having issues with.

    I used to be of the mind that if I had ever got one of those mugs that I would hawk it right away on ebay. Not anymore, with the way I've seen it's value climb and climb I would wait and use it to fund my kids college education! :big_grin_:
    They also gave us Cyber Monday! I bet Razer's staff is breaking their backs on that day! :big_grin_:

    Congrats man I hope you get it on release day oh side note according to people who've seen the device in a three store it has a 3 boot up animation before the razer one. Hopefully razer release factory images we can flash over it though.

    My order went through! Look at that min replies and suddenly it's fixed lol

    Yeah I know but I think it'll tilt me just a tad seeing it lol but once razer put up factory images it'll be easily gotten rid off just glad it's now all over and the orders are all going through its been a ride.

    What, are you getting Razer Phone from your company? Than I’m more jealous, how lucky you’re:) I got only old Nokia even without touchscreen from the company never used it anyway;)

    lol no mate - I run an IT business myself - so when i buy devices like a phone, or a laptop - as they are for business use i can claim the vat and expense and set it off against my income for tax purposes ...

    I haven't kept up with the forums, but weren't US pre-orders supposed to go up shortly after the announcement? What happened to that and when are we expected to be able to place an order?
