Estimate your Librem 5 shipping

No , nothing whatsoever . I think it was kyle chimed in with Fir is after evergreen , That being said our sun will one day supernova after evergreen as well so…

I’m hoping for this time next year but who’s to say . In these uncertain times I may not even be alive a year from now . And if I’m not I’m ok with that , my money went to a good cause .

I have heard that if Fir doesn’t happen I will get an Evergreen . But whoever it was from Purism , again I think it was kyle sounded very sure of themselves when they said Fir comes after evergreen so I’m holding out hope here.

And another person reported a Librem 5 arrival.


Choosing Fir means “I have backed the project already, but I’ll pass on the first gen Librem 5 and will wait undefined amount of time for a second generation, whatever it will end up being”. If you’re not ok with that you should probably just switch back to Evergreen, since - as you probably noticed - the only rough shipping estimate we had for Fir is now obviously outdated and so far there haven’t even been a new one announced at all. Of course if you’re okay with that and still have plenty of patience, then feel free to stay on Fir :slight_smile:


Im good with however long it takes. I’m lettin it ride at this point. Either the world ends , I die of mutated covid 23 or I get my V.2 Librem 5 in the next few years lol .


One of the very few here who take patience is a virtue for real. I like that, I wish you the very best while waiting for Fir (which is no real waiting because you don’t actively wait) and stay healthy. :slight_smile:


My Phone arrived on 2020-12-11 (was send to germany, so it took some time)
Order date: 2017 -09-15
(I was in dogwood, due hardware problems in Dogwood I moved to Evergreen)


This sounds promising. My order is from October 7, 2017 (i.e. three weeks later) and I’m in Germany as well. Though, until now I didn’t received the mail asking for address confirmation, etc.


Same, but October 14th. Let’s see who’ll get it first :slight_smile:

Edit: note, however, that (for the two of us) they need to ship about 3-4 times as many phones as have probably arrived so far. Hopefully, it speeds up a bit, soon.


So it took them about 9 days to ship 555-158~=400 phones. From 12/02 to 12/11. If this estimate is approximately correct and their shipping pace stays the same, it will take 22 days to ship 1000 phones. I am at about 2300 so it should take 50 days starting from 12/02. This should bring me to end of January to beginning of February. I can’t wait anymore :upside_down_face:


Strange, that someone not employed by Purism has to work on that. I would expect a company putting “Open” on their agenda transparently communicates that information. I orderer October 3, 2017, hey Purism, what’s the expected delivery date? Where do you stay?


In case you missed it:

This thread is mostly for those who

  • can’t wait for the official estimates in January
  • don’t trust there will actually be estimates in January :wink:
  • still have a dim hope to receive theirs before the end of January :grimacing:

I think its not correct. My dates are the same as 5a54a. (shipping confirmation mail from purism and shipping arrival date)
So you have no idea how fast they proceed or how many devices get send per day. Sorry for that. :upside_down_face:

Does you device says anything on the device or in the paperware about FCC ID or the like?

You’re right and in fact i took the wrong formulation when i asked about estimation. Some facts are what i’m looking for, so not the delivery date for my device but the state of delivery at Purism. Just out of curiousity. What’s going on in the company?

Does you device says anything on the device or in the paperware about FCC ID or the like?

There isnt certification yet, see Librem 5 FCC Certification for more discussion.

Users that posted threads over reciveing theirs (such as Amarok) havent said anything about enclosed paperwork showing it as far as I’m aware.

There was a general undertone of these early devices being slow to go out while Purism works on certification but thats just conjecture since no one but Purism knows.


That comes from:

The box has both the FCC and CE markings.

Last night, a team of jackbooted FCC thugs pounded on my door and demanded to see my Librem 5, but I didn’t let them in.


Thanks Amarok, knew there was more but spaced on the location!

Sorry, where did you get this data from?? I haven’t seen any concrete numbers anywhere.

As an outsider looking in … the state of delivery is good. There is a steady trickle of posts in this forum from people confirming delivery. It is no longer just one or two phones in the entirety of forumland. On the other hand, if you look at the “high-water mark” for “order date” for those who have already received a phone it is still around September 2017, so definitely an exercise in patience. On the third hand, with your order date (October 3), the first email (address and modem confirmation) can’t be far away. On the fourth hand, there’s Xmas/New Year in the way, and that may slow things down.

As already quoted

We do hope to actually provide everyone who hasn’t yet received their Librem 5 a shipping estimate some time in January

so I guess you will have something solid to go on in January if you have not by then received the first email. When they produce such an estimate, that will be a further indication of the good state of the delivery process.

It was made up. :wink: This topic is the official topic for speculation i.e. outside of any actual facts provided by Purism. Enjoy it but take with a grain of salt.
