Estimate your Librem 5 shipping

The FTC grants companies seven working days to handle a refund. The vast majority of companies out there don’t have a problem with that. And if you do have problems with that you’re basically admitting you’re incapable to do business by the rules and as a consequence your company will get fined.


Gentlemen, this thread is for giving details about L5 shippings.
Can we please go back on topic?


Look on that thread. The time frames are much longer than you’re thinking. It shouldn’t take 6 months. Or two years …

No. I asked joao.azevado and he is a “Support Engineer”, not a “Developer”. He’s usually more directed toward hardware support, but he has frequently addressed issues on this forum about why their place in the queue was skipped.

It’s also not a prime number so there’s that.

Jep, that’s like mine.

I ordered the phone originally but had to cancel to select a new payment card. They honored my original order date.

After three+ years waiting, my address changed and I replied today the confirmation email.


Mine was ordered Sep 2 2020 and was apparently shipped today (Jun 2 2023).

Edit 1: …and delivered June 8. A Pinephone has been my primary phone since Feb 2022. I’m hoping the M5 can take over that role.

My Librem 5 is working well and nicely engineered. I can tell the OS/software has come a long way since the early days; it is quite usable and clean. Thanks Purism!

I have not gotten any response as to the cause of the delay. I swapped out the AweSIM plan for the less-expensive SIMple plan, but otherwise I asked for nothing else except the phone (no extra batteries, etc.).

Starting with the first email notification, responses were very quick, but when I started asking what was causing the delay I TWICE was given the runaround, aka “It will ship in two weeks”. The last “two week” notice was 17 days ago.

I suggested that if the AweSIM/SIMple change was the source of the delay, then I was willing simply to forget the plans and to have the phone shipped as is, and never got any kind of a response (again, twice).

Has anybody else run into a brick wall surrounding the AweSIM and SIMple plans?


There doesn’t seem to be much consistency as to who gets phones, refunds or responses from purism.
