Got the AweSIM SIMple, also does phone calls and text.


Librem 5 has currently got a hopeful lead time for delivery (about a year). Meanwhile some Librems start resurfacing on ebay and the like, certainly a faster way to get hold of this device!

I thought of this post as the “go to” post for delivery stats. Too bad this forum doesn’t have a DB like (or like the old yahoogroups.).

This could be the “Neverending Story”. Before we get swallowed up by “The Nothing”. (And will Atreya solve our disbelief in shipping? Will our L5’s get shipped into the void?"

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, shipping parity will be reached and this topic can be closed.

I hope I am wrong here, but did you really pay 197 + 136 + 60 + 10 = about 400 euros in taxes and fees?!

I read it as 197 total with everything in parentheses after being the breakdown of the 197.

Ah, sure. My bad. Still a lot. But far less outlandish.

Waiting for August 2019✌
