I was using an Android phone for this, I just pointed it out ,in case it did not work for others
not familiar with pine64
This is a pic of what had , not the usual 404 etc .
But no worries I just used a different device at the time , this pic is from a few minutes ago , I am not running a VPN at this time
My PinePhone has been stuck in "Departed Hong Kong" status for almost a week now
But thanks for the link
Customs , etc, waiting for other stuff to make a full cargo, customs again , not unusual , don't sweat it.

Some people have already received their PinePhone?
I haven't even received my email with the tracking number...
@Marathon2422 Yeah, I guess they're more strict for phones. I had a portable projector with 16K mAh battery which was shipped around the same time as my PinePhone and it arrived Thursday last week.
Anyway, I can wait

My PinePhone arrived few minutes ago.
I can't wait to go back home and test it.
It's a total surprise as I still don't have received my tracking number, but I was starting to figure this out as Pine64 stated that shipping was OK while tracking may be bumpy
[Edit] @Invy I think that answers your question
@AppLee Wow that's cool. It was delivered to your door?
I got my tracking number but it's stuck to the same status for almost a week.
Yes it was delivered to my door.
My GF was home to receive the parcel.
I know you're going to make a pictoral diary of all you do ... have fun
That was confirmation from my GF, but yeah I already started shooting this little baby.
Now it's time to prep a sd card for my new born
Mine has departed Hong Kong 12 hrs ago
Thursday it shows this on USPS tracking

Another quick video of the phone running UT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ST_BjKicTAk
updating my PHP to #216 i got hung at the "timezone page" it would not highlight ,New York est, so i picked another ,Texas worked to get me past there . is there a better place to put the little " things"
How can I flash UBPorts to the eemc? After testing pmos, KDE neon, and manjaro neon I see UBPorts as having the most promise and ebung the furthest along in development. predictive text, a functioning app store, theres an app to connect to my self hosted nextcloud server, theres just a huge list of positives I'm seeing. Next task will be to see if I can get verizon service going on it. In the mean time I really want to run this from the speed of the internal flash storage.
Some other things I'd like to do; screen rotating, test the camera, test headphones and I'm sure I'll think of more with time.
@Marathon2422 I haven't been able to change time via GUI either (EST) I had to do it via CL

@admsjas See @AppLee answer at the bottom of this thread https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3334/pinephone-tutorial/31
Updated to #217 got hung in setup with demo screen " pull down" , quick off/on, got past that.
it is very slick and good looking in operation.
Re the time zone function ,I guess thats related to location etc .
About the timezone, Bearded1 on UBports TG channel send this :
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata sudo timedatectl set-timezone America/New_York
You can set the timezone using either command and even by choosing
Manuallyin the settings...
Changes may take some time to be visible.
I tried manually in settings but it didn't work, thanks for the CL setting
