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.

Another option might be to keep the plan but ask for it (the SIM) to ship separately. This would mean that you have to set it up yourself (whereas if you order a phone and a plan to ship together then Purism sets it up for you).

FYI, an interesting thing, that I personally didn’t realize form confirmation email is:
