Tell Us When Your GT Arrives (or is on the way)! [Formerly: BLF GT DHL Delivery Logistics Discussion]

Just a place to celebrate our GT's showing up until the original GT Group Buy thread reopens.

 

Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow by end of day!

 

Original Post:

_____________________________________________________

I imagine many of us will not receive our DHL packages due to no one being available to sign.  Several of us were trying to figure out how to handle the situation when the thread was shut down.

Best I could find was to click on the link in my text message.  Problem with that is that it takes me to a page that I need to fill out and print directly from my cell phone.  I don't have a way to do that.   I tried to find the same service from a desktop, but it doesn't seem accessible from anywhere other than my cellphone.

I have contacted DHL customer service.  If they provide an answer, I will share it here.

Anyone know how to change delivery options?

EDIT: Figured out one possible solution.  See next Post below.

Figured out a way to print the form by doing the following:

  • Installed PrinterShare App on my Adroid Phone.
  • Set up the printer to be my Google Drive.
  • Clicked on link in the DHL text
  • Clicked on "Leave Your Signature" and filled out the form.
  • Printed it to my Google Drive
  • Opened the resultant PDF from a desktop computer and printed it.
  • You're receive an email (you supply it when filling out the form) that confirms your delivery instructions
  • Sign the form and post it at the spot you designated in the form.

Hope that helps some of the folks that are in a similar situation.

EDIT:  My delivery is supposed to be by EOD tomorrow.  Yay!

The low mode should be lower.

No, it was a combination of providing on-line delivery instructions (e.g. front door, side door, etc) and printable form. No DHL Account Number required.   It also auto populates the delivery address.  I'm a bit concerned about mine because the State portion says "S", instead of "SC".

 

EDIT:  Repurposed thread.  Just a temporary spot to have fun and celebrate as we await our GT's.  Sounds like quite a few folks will have them in hand by tomorrow night.  Charge your batteries!

I got a notice about an hour ago saying mine is in the country, and then another one that seems to say it’s through customs.

The low mode should be lower.

On Dec 27th I received the DHL notice that my BLF GT had shipped, and that it shipped on Dec 28th! Shocked Made me Big Smile

(Yes, I understand that China is across the international date line. Mine shipped at 1am China time, which is still the day before when I received the text.)

Now ~32 hours later it seems to be in Cincinnati, Ohio and cleared by customs.

Hmm Mine is in the first batch, no batteries and still no notification, while I can understand sending them out by country batches I thought that the first 555 batch was being sent first, it seems that there are people in the second batch with their lights on the way <—- if I am wrong then I’ll blame frustration Wink

Cheers David

Nothing to see here folks, move along...

Hmm. Last time I signed digitally on DHL’s site and they left the package. There was no print out or anything like that.

The day before delivery they sent a text, something like ‘package scheduled for delivery… signature is required… manage delivery at:’ and then followed up with a specific link to ‘delivery.dhl.com’

Following that link there were a bunch of different options, pretty much anything you could want to request in order to best receive the package.

IIRC, last time I checked the latest list, there were (edit/recount) 270 orders being shipped DHL, that had batteries ordered at the same time. Is that enough for a full pallet? No clue.

I thought about ordering just the flashlights, then buying the batteries stateside, then I figured the savings combined made it more worthwhile, so I ordered the package deals instead.

I'm definitely not in a big rush, but it would be nice to see the original thread unlocked, so team members that do have contacts and/or info pertaining to the topic, can post, to let us all in on what's going on. If anything

Right before it went down I believe one person said they got a tracking number and they had batteries ordered… unconfirmed though.

Posted this in the GT thread but got lost in the midst of other shipment posts and craziness:

Are there things we should be looking for and reporting on when we start getting our GTs? How to tell that they fixed firmware issue(which was what exactly)?

I see mine (59 ordered, 312 paid, no batteries) left Cincinnati this morning and just arrived in Milwaukee also this morning. Normally I would say no way it gets here today, but with how fast it went from Hong Kong to Cincinnati OH who knows. Might have to get some batteries ready. Where does the tracking show the expected delivery date?

Same situation for me too, but my estimated delivery still shows today.  The Estimated Delivery shows on the top right under "Result Summary".  Here is the page I used for tracking.

If you did not order a Q8.
For NarsilM, First operation, may be have some puzzle.
However, be patient and read the user manual carefully.
If confused, lost in manual.
Please reset the factory settings, and try again.

Below is the reset operation.
If, blink’s speed, you can read it smoothly.
Then, the firmware must be normal.

When ramping mode

When Mode sets

Sorry for my poor english.
