Has anyone received their Orba yet??? Don't delete my question Artiphon people!!!!!
sent them an email this morning and received the same auto resonder that they always send out
Tried again... looks like contact@ goes straight to the auto responder.
As a kickstarter backer, I asked Artiphon for a refund, I don't know if anyone will deal with it at all, but I don't want to be a part of this farce anymore. Artipon probably thinks, that Kickstarter means: "Kick your backer's ass."
I wish strong nerves to those who remain. Bye.
I finally got a tracking number. I was NOT part of the original KickStarter backers and ordered from the Artiphon site by adding myself to the reservation list. Here is my updated timeline:
06/29/2020: Placed my name on the reservation list
07/20/2020: Received an email saying it is time to place my order.
07/23/2020: Placed my order for Orba w/ Travel Case
08/19/2020: Received email stating "Your Orba has Shipped" stating "Your Orba has successfully arrived at our LA warehouse...typically taking about 3-5 days..."
09/17/2020: Received tracking number that links to "track.aftership.com". (NOTE: Nothing showed up at first but later in the day I saw initial tracking information like "shipping label has been printed" and "Arrived Shipping Partner Facility, USPS Awaiting Item". So it appears that USPS will be the carrier that finally delivers the product.)
I agree with others about the lack of communication. But I want to thank Nick Lowe for sharing the messages sent to the Kickstarter site.
