DHL sent all the PinePhones to New Zealand 🤦

@PINE64:
DHL sent ALL PinePhones to New Zealand instead of their actual destinations 🤦. How this happened is beyond us. This is a blunder on their part, but ultimately we're the ones that get to apologize to you - very sorry about this.

    I know this sucks for them and I do feel bad. But at the same time it is kind of funny in that NZ seems like such a random place for them all to end up

        Suppose it might depend where they are actually located. If they are still in DHLs possession I would assume they can turn around and ship them back. If they are some where like customs I could...

      Gotta love someone that can take advantage of an opportunity.

      After the 12-hour, 6,500-mile flight, with a stop in Tahiti, Lewis spent about eight hours in Auckland, where he took a bus tour of the city before flying back to Los Angeles.

      Gotta love someone that can take advantage of an opportunity.

        This was back in the 80's, I am surprised the turnaround was only 8 hours. Classic New Zealand.

        Classic New Zealand.

    This is so funny but so unfortunate. Hopefully its not too too bad for them. I'd love to be able to get my hands on one eventually. My iPhone is still holding on for now, and from their page it...

My iPhone is still holding on for now, and from their page it sounds like my T-Mobile service might be supported eventually (all but MMS are a yes right now) so that would be a cool change.
