I got the email from farnell saying that you could preorder the Raspberry Pi and clicked the link and preordered one but I never created an account. I tried to logon on to their website but my email address doesn't appear in their system so I can't. I therefore have no idea when my Pi might be coming but I do have a reference number, has anyone else done this or am I the only one silly enough to do this. What should I do, just sit and wait for an email or see if I can somehow get an account linked to my order?
Can't wait for my Pi when it does come
I have this exact same problem; I emailed Farnell on the 21st April to ask how I can view the status of my order.
They replied: "Your order is currently on our back order list. This means that we have reserved stock for you and it will be allocated accordingly. Once this happens you should be able to view your order.
For current updates please refer to our website and also your inbox, as we will be in contacting you shortly with a status update on your purchase."
So I guess that they haven't forgotten about the orders, but we need to wait out for a bit longer. Hope this puts your mind at ease
