I am still seething over this. I called Universal Canada yesterday at the number I posted above, and I was treated like shit. Worse than shit. The customer service person just sat there without responding to any of my questions.

I work in the service (insurance) industry and I know what it feels like to have some one tear you a new one, so I was polite and respectful through out the entire call. She had her back up and refused to even acknowledge they screwed up.

I wrote them a scathing email and demanded that they take responsibility for the mix up and do something for the Canadian fans that now have to wait. We are the last fans in THE WORLD to have access to this Box set. This is insane. I understand that the US manufacturer screwed up. But I resent the fact that because the US manufacturer screwed up the US customers gets their Special Editions and we have to wait. Are we supposed to accept that Universal isn’t in control of their CD distribution? They knew this IN ADVANCE yet they didn’t advise the consumers or the retailers.

Why would I buy anything from Universal after this? In my mind it simply encourages me to download music for free and skip paying Universal. If this is how they want to treat their shrinking consumer base (who put food on their collective table), then why bother?

I pre-ordered from Amazon about a month ago and my estimated shipping date was January 06, 2005

I found it with no problem at Target and cancelled my Amazon order this morning.

I got mine today at noon (collector's edition). I got an e-mail last night saying it had been shipped. I had it over-nighted since I hadn't heard the whole thing and couldn't wait!

My estimated shipping date is November 27, 2004 - November 30, 2004. Argh I should have just got it at the store. I just wanted to make sure I would get the collector's edition though.

Got an email today that it's being shipped. I got the Vertigo Part 2 the day after it was shipped, so hopefully I'll have the album tomorrow. This waiting is killing me!

I just checked my order status at Amazon and it had a ups tracking # which shows it was delivered today.

So it's waiting at my door, (although this was purchased for someone else), Circuit City delivered my copy yesterday.

Sorry to hear that Sicy. Got mine today but only after I bought three copies of the limited edition at a midnight sale.
Next up is the Ipod I guess. And a U2.com membership. And then tickets for the tour. Which will probably cost about $200 a ticket. I make a good living but this is getting ridiculous.

Normal

I got an email timestamped 3:44 pm TODAY saying that it had shipped. I expected it to be HERE today. Am annoyed.

They are estimating the delivery date as December 1. I am hoping it will come tomorrow.
