Estimate your Librem 5 shipping

After some use, I am going say my opinion of the alarms has upgraded and I am more than happy with it.
(I admit to being a bit spoiled by Jolla’s alarm that would alarm even if the battery was bellow letting the phone boot. Not good for the battery, not necessary.) I do look forward to longer battery life as the software is improved.


Looking at it from the opposite perspective … is there anyone ever who has posted in this forum that they ordered in 2022 or 2023 complaining that the phone has not been received yet?

That would be direct evidence of your suggestion that shipping parity has not been reached.


That would be interesting to hear from such a person! I invite anyone meeting that criteria to make themselves known :slight_smile:

It seems that some users who ordered in 2022 received their Librem 5.

There is a “used” phone on sale which was ordered on 2022-10-19.

Hopefully you have been enjoying your Librem 5 for the last two weeks.

Can someone please help me to understand the “lead time” for Librem 5. I see that most people are posting the recent shipping information and looks like only orders from 2021 are being fulfilled. This makes me confused. If I place an order now for Librem 5, will the phone not be shipped in “10 days” as stated on the " Purism Products and Availability Chart"?

It should arrive you within 2 weeks after your order. Purism said all back orders are fulfilled (does not include those who did not response on e-mail). This thread is not important anymore, you can ignore that nobody of 2022 and 2023 orders wrote here.

I also think that there were not many orders in last 2 years, because price was 300$ higher and who knows what else. They also didn’t need to wait for years to get hands on this device. That could also be a reason why nobody cared about sharing shipments.


Yes, it looks strange. A possible explanation is that there were relatively few orders placed during 2022 and 2023, and none of those few have felt like posting about their deliveries here.

I do think it is likely that there were not very many orders during 2022, there was lots of bad publicity and lots of talk about people waiting many years for their orders, maybe not many people placed new orders then. Of course all this is just speculation, it would be really nice to see a post here from someone who ordered recently and got it delivered. If such a person is reading this, please consider posting here about your order and shipping date, to let us know that the short lead time is something that can happen in the real world. :slight_smile:
