    It's what I surely will do because I don't think to receive it before the 45th day (20th january for me). I think the best is to mailing TET to explain my situation, and I will do what they think is better for them and me. ;)
    But I'm sure I'm not the only one who have paid by Paypal

    I just sent an e-mail to TET to explain the situation, they have choice and I wait for the answer.... I will do what they think is best for us :)
    And I asked them when they think to send the first Ceras (if they know by now) ;)

    Because you paid also by Paypal ? You order the Cera again ?
    Or you had just tired of waiting ?

    All good ! I contacted Zeki who told me that the best way for us is to refund me, and he will send me a new invoice when Ceras will be ready to send (he hopes the end of the month) :)
    I'm really excited, despite all these glitches and delays, to have in my hand my Cera (I'm waiting to try it, and if it meets my expectations, I will order a second for my wife !)

    I had to down size my order to just the LLss cera, and will add on more later. I tell ya these guys would have had a lot more of my money if the release had been on schedule :lol: . Now I am not punishing them by any means, for the delay, but I did have time to think it through a bit more, and realized I didn't need all the extras to start me off, esp. since some won't be ready for a while anyway (lit switch). I am still very interested in the EO cart (who wouldn't be??), but as it stands I have 2 darts and I rarely use them. I guess I'm just more of a flower girl. :nod: same reason I stopped trying to make the d-9 stuff work for me... if I was flush with tons of good oils around, I would probably be doing it the opposite way, but that isn't the case for us right now. I may still pick the EO cart up sooner than later, but I wanted to back things down until after the release happens and some of the first round "kinks" get more fine tuned. It also took a big dent out of my holiday spending debt. I can be impulsive with my spending, so they definitely lost out because I had time to really think on this one. :lol: sorry guys!! I am sure I will end up with most of the stuff I had originally ordered, it just may take a bit longer to acquire.

    You know what's always a good sign. When the website is down.

    I would not worry about site being down, it's probably getting stuff changed, like pictures and what not... there have been some changes to the parts so maybe they are updating that.

    Look at it though. Website EXPIRED. So either they forgot to pay their host or something bad is happening. I have a feeling it's the first. They also removed the lighted switch option from the preorder page. 2900mah batteries are still listed though.

    I'm just annoyed that from what we know, I now have spent $75 on things they don't even have. Two batteries and a lighted switch. Last update we have from them (not OF) was Thursday. Hopefully hear something soon.

    that's why I took some of my extras off my order, until some of this stabilizes. I was just in contact with them yesterday. I got an email showing my refund was being processed, so they did not just go away, I know that much.

    The website for sales has always been that.

    I wouldn't expect them to actually go away. I was just thinking about that, when I would just have to switch batteries that was fine. Then switch problems, I was okay at first because I expected to get the lighted switch once the on/off toggle switches were released. Since they're not even on the website now though it concerns me. For those not keeping an eye on everything that could be a $25 that just disappears if not handled properly.

    Think of the materials they're using, if one shop is going slow they can't just run to the next one without an issue. I feel bad for them in a way since I know how much shit they're getting. I also don't feel bad because I would LOVE to be in the loop, even if they don't necessarily have to, doesn't seem that hard to pop on here and do a "Sorry guys! Our shop is delayed, waiting on them for mouthpieces and we had to cancel illuminated click switches so you get two Ceras in your order now!"

    Sorry Not buying it. Too many problems. Each unfortunate thing that has happened tells a story when u add them all together. And the story here is that TET pre sold a product before they were ready. WAY before they were ready.

    I agree, should have been using previous sales to at least have a first wave ready for some people. I have the majority of their older generation devices and accessories so I know the end product WILL be worth it though. Here's to hoping for sooner than later, classes have begun and I really need that EO to help my back from sitting at a computer for 8.5 hours.

    As an issue of perception, being vaporware, by default it does not exist :whoa:

    What, this is no time for puns? :lol:

    If you have negative feelings about your decision to preorder, think about how hard TET is sweating. I know "your" money is most important, but they have the burden to bear at this point, particularly in terms of brand reputation going forward. We have invested relatively nothing on an individual basis, they have invested everything in Cera collectively :science:

    Nobody likes bad news, but I can imagine they've heard a lot more of it from their suppliers over the last few weeks than we've heard from them. So I advise a ceremonial T1 session and a heavy dose of

    I was told the last of the SS parts should be in today, Ceras have already been Pre-assembled, so when they arrive at that point they'll be assembled and completed and shipping would start...

    But that was a few days ago, yesterday someone (think OF, sorry if I'm wrong) said it could be the end of this month...?

    So I don't know if that was just another estimated answer I was given or if things changed again, or what. I don't want to get people's hopes up if it doesn't happen but it might...!

    Once again, fingers crossed, and hope for a TET update...

    it was LeTchen who said end of the month.

    However OF did say in his last update that the ceramic body and mouthpeice had a projected delivery date of this friday.

    my guess is that LeTchen is right. End of the month sounds right considering how the safety switch is still up in the air.

    I trust in TET and their work... I believe their only mistake is commercial, they should wait until all the cards parts in hand to begin the sale.
    "Do not sell the bear's skin before killing him." :myday:

    Zeki writes me that in a mail (but possibly I don't understand right... I'm french !!! :lol:) :
    "Once we ship all current back orders I'll let you know and we'll get you set up again for a Cera.

    Hopefully by the end of the month.
    Cheers,
    Zeki"

    i hope users here to dont really think that TET is going to vanish with their money. have they not proven themselves that they are for real at this point? between us and the ecig market TET has a very good thing going for itself. then theres all the custom videos and updates (not recently i know) that they put out there. i am unaware of any MFG of any product that is as engaged with their customers during development as TET is.

    waiting sucks, but it will come. and my guess is that everyone is going to love it when it does.

    I'd be more likely to blame the projected release date to be the culprit of stirring people up. I don't think many of the folks who were upset, would have been had there not been expectations to have this in their hands by a specific time, even though there was the disclaimer of it being subject to change. What grabs people's mind is the target date, and it becomes a marker. Toss in the stress of the holidays, and people hoping to have gifts and what not. At least that is my take on it. It's all hindsight and speculation now anyway. I am so not concerned about it at this point. There are delays, it's fine. There are a lot better things to be getting bent out of shape over in this world. Enjoy your day :D
