    I haven't canceled yet. I'm giving them one more week and if they don't have the kit shipped to me by next Friday then I will cancel and just get one from a Sprint store. It's hasn't been worth the wait and hassle to save $20. I understand that they have little control over the supply that they receive, but it is extremely misleading to continue posting available dates when they apparently are never accurate.

    Everyone is in the same boat. Filling back orders with what little allocation they get etc. When something moves as volatility as I'm sure these are right now, it's like throwing a dart at a fly mid flight.

    Because they're out of stock I assume. But if they'd just order it, I'm sure they'd get it quicker than they think.

    Or, buy the bundle, TS only and cover which they discount for about $62 delivered (not bad if you want it now).

    My TS only, ordered from here came in yesterday (Thursday). Order processed on Monday morning.

    Same thing with me, had an order with Fommy (I placed my order while it was still showing as in stock, even received a USPS tracking # the next day) but after three weeks of waiting I canceled and reordered with Amazon last Wed at the $52 price (free shipping). Today I received notice of shipment from Amazon, via UPS. And Amazon didn't charge me until it shipped out. I will have to say, customer service with Fommy when I called to complain was pretty good.

    I am in the same boat, so i emailed them and asked for a free case in consideration of the delay - i got an email this morning telling me that the case has been added to my order free of charge and it will be sent priority shipping

    On August 8th, 2009, I purchased the following from the Precentral accessory store:
    1. Palm Touchstone Charging Kit (Dock+Back Cover) for Pre (out of stock available 8/11)
    2. Palm Vehicle Power Charger for Pre
    3. Palm Travel Charger for Pre (out of stock available 8/14)


    I will let you know when the items ship and how long it takes to get to my door (Boston, MA). No complaints here (yet). I knew things would be back ordered. There is a price to be paid for getting a solid discount.

    update: 8/17 -> The touchstone kit and vehicle charger are in, but the travel charger must be a hot item because Precentral has pushed back the available date twice, now to 8/28

    fommy.com sent my touchstone out yesterday. It seems everyone who was OOS finally got their kits in.

    My touchstone and back cover, travel charger and car charger all shipped on Tuesday and according to UPS are out for delivery today. I would say 2 weeks from ordering (8/8) to delivery (8/21) is a reasonable time period to wait for the savings offered by Precentral.
