It is a nice story. It's good to hear they're still in business.<br><br>However, at the risk (too late!) of sounding like a broken record, your reply is condescending and misses the point like some others here.<br>

This is a completely legitimate concern.<br><br>Money could be taken out of my account at any moment, or it might in a month, or not at all. It's a really large sum of money for me, and here I am (along with others) not knowing:

<br><br>Martin Straub raised a good point though. I haven't actually contacted OpenMoko directly about my order. I felt I had good reason not to - I didn't want to put extra strain on them as I felt sure they'd be receiving lots of such inquiries and probably couldn't tell us anything - after all, if they were able to tell us about our order status, they would already have done that, right?
