Ordered 26 June

Informed it had shipped 26 June

Couldn't track by 3rd June

Sent a message - saying can't track 3rd June

Reply back saying post need time to catch up

Started tracking 5 June - the day it had actually been picked up

Was taken to Beijing International Airport and updated as Waiting for transit airline Space on 7 July

No updates since to tracker.

Sent a message today to Merrimobiles asking whats going on.

This is the first time I have purchased anything from them. Glad I didn;t need the phone in a hurry or would have bought another one by now. My old G300 still plodding on.

I've just been given my tracking number by MeriMobiles (eventually).

I get the feeling that even though my order was changed to 'Shipped' at the weekend, it wasn't actually shipped until today when I asked for my tracking number

The tracking number is in the format RB000000000CN but I can't get it to track anywhere. Anyone have any ideas?

I've had my tracking number for over a week but it still doesn't track.

It seems pretty clear to me that "shipped" just equals money taken and has no connection to your order actually shipping. It is now 25 days since purchase.

Merimobiles responded on 17 July claiming it has left China - by quoting a Chinese website - run it through Google translate - it is still in Beijing as of right now.

Just sent a message now asking how they have confirmed it has left China when every other tracking site says it is still in the Airport?

Paid through PayPal so will wait a few more days before opening a dispute to give them the benefit of the doubt.

I didn't go for the Vowney, but I did order from merimobiles.com
Normally I wouldn't risk it, but Paul O has changed my mind about that.
Ordered on 4th July - received 20th July
Will I order again? Hell yeah!

I ordered on 4th July and it only started tracking this week. It does now say it's arrived in GB, so I expect it either today or Monday.

Got it today :) Have to say, I'm mightily impressed with it given it cost under £120! I haven't had a chance to have a proper "play" with it yet, but I'm just about to root it and restore all my apps using Titanium Backup. I'll put it through its paces tomorrow.

Was debating whether to go with Merrimobiles or not for the V5, ended up looking on Ebay, got a brand new V5 for £130, Paid Thursday, Delivered Friday :) :) .
Seller wanted a new 5" Smartphone Ordered from China, but took that long to be delivered went out and bought one, so sold this when finally delivered. It came with Playstore and the V1.2 Rom on it. Thanks to Tillaz I now have Root,CWM and his custom Rom on,Very impressed.

Update: bought on july 13, they said shipped on July 16 but as you can see it was collected only on July 25 and "what a chance" only after my complaining on the chat line. So basically they are cheating when they write to you shipped. And i did not even choose a colour

Had the same with Merimobiles and pandawill, the shipping date bears no resemblance to actual shipping date, shipping to them seems to mean packed and ready to ship, then the postal company picks it up and starts the actual shipping process about a week later.

In my experience, having bought two items from them, it should arrive in the UK 1-2 days after "Opening", then you should receive it 2-3 days after that.

Great! There are direct flights from PEK to SEA so I'm hoping it arrives on one of those.

I'll let everyone know if the V5 actually works here in the USA on WCDMA bands other than 850 MHz. I'm skeptical it will work but we'll see...

Still not received anything from Merimobiles.

Lost patience.

34 days since I ordered.

Opened up a dispute with PayPal - to ensure I am not disbarred from making a claim with them - while Merimobiles say they are "looking" for my phone.

Not impressed as a first time customer and glad I paid with PayPal.

Will keep people updated on here.

Smart move.. I would have done the same thing. I still think merimobles is the best company to buy from, only because I have heard from others that they give refunds with out any hassles, so hopefully you will be on par with their refund experiences. Good luck and thanks for keeping us informed.
