3:55pm CDT 3G Oasis arrived Mesquite TX. Based on past experience it should get to Austin tonight and be on a truck for delivery tomorrow.

    It's on its way.   I just got the shipping confirmation and I have the serial number.  It's coming to Oklahoma City from Ft. Worth, TX.  It's supposed to be here tomorrow.

    Where are you in Illinois?  My Oasis has left Indianapolis this afternoon for Illinois via UPS Ground.  I'm in the Chicago 'burbs.  Tracking shows delivery tomorrow.

    ETA:  Tracking now shows it's in Chicago.  :)  UPS usually delivers here mid morning.

    I'm in Schaumburg, NW suburbs.  Mine just left Indy 40 minutes in the future (silly Indiana can't figure out what TZ it wants to be in), so definitely not the same truck as yours.  But I think it'll get here.

    It should.  Mine is in Chicago now.  Will go to UPS in Addison and then on the truck for delivery to me in Lombard tomorrow.  :)

    So happy a lot of folks are getting the Oasis early  :)   Mine has shipped by UPS, so that means I will get it later in the day on Wednesday.  8)

    Strange that yours is coming from Fort Worth, while mine came from Kentucky via Little Rock and Sallisaw. Based on experience both of ours should be in OKC tomorrow! (And hopefully delivered to us!)

    I ordered the 3G, in black to avoid months of delay, on 27 April. I was given a delivery date of 10 May. Yesterday it still said dispatching on the 9 May but strangely shipping "today" , i.e. 3 May. On waking up this morning I find it will be delivered today,  4 May.  So I'm pleased. I'll be out at work but hopefully it will be waiting for me tonight if the package is slim enough to fit through my letter box.

    Yep mine arrived in Chicago overnight (so did the rotary hammer, for those that are following that saga :) ).  Even though I think I'm actually closer to the Addison hub, my deliveries typically come out of Palatine, so I suspect they'll be headed there shortly.  Won't get to see it until I get home from work, or really play with it until after my son's Lacrosse practice, so I guess I'm about fifteen hours out.

    Out For Delivery!!!! Walnut, 3G with Special Offers. For the first time ever (1 1/2 yrs) I have used Special Offers for my Voyage. I'm paying to have them removed again if I am keeping the Oasis.
    I can't wait to get it!

    Got the text this morning that my Walnut/SO/wifi has shipped and will be here tomorrow instead of Friday!  Happy Cinco de Mayo to me!  Coming via USPS which means mid- to late afternoon, and we have a thing to go to at 6. So my initial playtime will be interrupted. But yay! 

    Can't wait to see all the new "first impressions" posts from the 3G folks!
