    Yeah I got an email too with a tracking code.
    So I checked it on singpost.com and I only got this piece of info:
    Information Received (This is not an acknowledgment of the physical receipt of the stated Registered Article)
    I don't get what this means lol^
    I still don't think they're legit because now suddenly we know it ships from China/HK/Singapore/whatev.... while on their site they have two options for Royal Mail.

    EDIT: Also isn't this false advertising? It's just misleading people. I mean I wanted to order from someplace in Europe cause I didn't want to wait long... I guess I don't care now, I just hope they really shipped it lol.

    If anyone is interested i just got this status update from Cymods facebook fanpage.

    "Dear Fans, if anyone needs a discount code for Cymods.com please send a private message and we will send you the code. This code is EXCLUSIVELY for our facebook fans and applies for ALL ITEMS."

    Damn i already bought two gateways from them ad wish i had this discount. Although i must say i am very happy so far with their communication and quick dispatch of orders.

    So if anyone wants a real bargain head over to cymods.com facebook fanpage and become a fan. Then send them a private message requesing a discount code.

    Bah, that's a shitty discount, but thanks for the heads up. It'd be cheaper to go through ModChipsDirect if I'm in the US.

    Possible delays in receiving your cards from Hong kong and China:

    Hong Kong post recently introduced extra security measures in the form of mandatory x-ray scanning for all outbound packages. This screening is performed upon all outbound packages to discourage the senders from sending hazardous articles such as inflammable liquids and lithium batteries. So this explains the delays guys, if you have a package waiting give it atleast an extra week for them to Xray it. While All the packages with lithium batteries and such shall be returned to the senders, the Gateway cards should be fine and should reach you with the possible delays.

    I would like to think this is the case for me but I doubt it. I think my Gateway is somehow in the hands of a lucky thief / Hong Kong Post employee. My latest Hong Kong Tracking on my Gateway said it "left Hong Kong for its Destination" on the 14th September. I dont think X-raying outbound packages would take that long, as I still have not received my Gateway. I used http://nds-card.com/track.asp to track my order and my order number from nds-card is in the early "19000's" and later I played around with the order number and I see even that nds-card order numbers in the "early 20500's" [ ie: other nds-card customers who order at a later date than me ] have already got their order delivered [via registered airmail].

    Yeah well, if it already left Hong Kong on 14th of September it should have reached you by now. The X-ray scan delays don't count. The thing with Australian Post is that they don't scan the bar codes for inbound registered mail, so you cannot even track it.

    Being optimistic, I could only speculate that even though Hong Kong post shows that the package left the country, it was still kept in a warehouse waiting to be scanned. Let's not forget that Hong Kong is a trading hub of Asia, we cannot imagine how many packages and containers they receive each day at the international airport. It's all just a guess based on assumptions though.

    So you're saying everything that should have been shipped already, has yet to be shipped?
