Has anyone reported an issue where the device does not charge or turn on, even with the battery removed? I'm hoping maybe the phone shipped without an OS on the eMMC (doubtful, but at least that would be an easy fix). The only indication that the hardware even works is a flash of the camera LED when trying to power it on with the battery inserted. Otherwise, no charging indicator when plugged in and it does nothing with the battery removed and the power cable connected.

If anyone with a phone from the batch that shipped on 12/14 have the same problem, I can confirm the issue with my phone as described above was caused by no OS being present on the eMMC. When I inserted a microsd card with a bootable image the phone booted and charged correctly.

Have you even slipped in a sd card with an OS image to check if it will even boot?

Yes, after I wrote Jumpdrive to a SD card and inserted it into the phone, the phone booted. The eMMC does not have a partition table, so it appears my specific device was never flashed with an OS at the factory. Not a huge deal, but I'm not going to lie, I had a little bit of anxiety about it when it appeared I had a brick delivered after almost a month of waiting for it.

Phone has been working fine since I wrote an OS to the eMMC.

Just thought I'd note for QC purposes that mine is from the same batch (got it 2 days ago), and mine was fine, Manjaro was indeed loaded on the eMMC. Glad that that was the only problem with yours.

I realize this is a patient community, but one great way to lose interest/momentum for something is to have to wait 2 months from when you place the order to when you receive it.  I ordered the Manjaro CE pinephone on 11/18.....today is 1/12...still waiting.  Unbelievable considering you can order things and have them delivered to your home in the same day.  It shipped from HK on 12/14 and arrived at Chicago O'Hare on 12/28.  I'm thinking....great....I live in the Kansas City metro areas....maybe 7-10 days to arrive.....nope....1/12 and it is still bouncing around the KC metro area....Stilwell, Lenexa, Kansas City...just bouncing around.  Talk about inefficiency.  Should have paid for premium delivery...what a joke.  Well, hopefully I'm impressed in the next week or so whenever USPS decides it's time to deliver it to me because waiting two months puts a damper on the excitement level.  Disappointing & frustrating.  Anybody considering ordering a pinephone....don't even consider normal shipping...pay for the expedited.

This just shows how much USPS cares about service.
The only time I had something like this was when I ordered cheese from Europe (they have delicious cheese), it took them 2 months to deliver.
So I had to throw it all away at the time it got delivered.

I asked the European post company, they told me to ask the Japanese post company, because it already arrived in Japan.
I asked them, they said they didn't receive anything from the Europeans.
I asked the Europeans again, and of course they were using this convenient "one size fits all" excuse called "because of corona...".

2 months later, it arrived.
Not delivered by the Japanese company they told me to ask, but a German company (DHL).
I was just as pissed off as you were about delivery service.

You probably should of paid the $10 extra for DHL and gotten it within a week after it shipped.
