It sounds like you had an incredible (ok, minor) amount of bad luck in this instance. This sucks and we (ok, I) feel for you.
But look on the bright side! At least you don’t have a forehead shaped indentation in the middle of your keyboard/touchscreen/tablet/phone/etc. like a high percentage of other potential buyers do/did yesterday. At least Keyboards/Touchscreens/Tablets/Phones/Etceteras-R-Us was open for their replacement needs. (I personally have several spares on hand for just such an emergency. I keep them next to the wall patch kits and buckets of Spackle.)
As for “Would think anyone familiar with anything would know this to not be indicating I was incredibly stupid to think that the message was emailed directly to a folder by sender”, have you ever worked in IT Support? This stuff happens ALL THE TIME. ANYONE with more than a week on Phone or Deskside Support has stories of “My Computer Doesn’t Work” where the root cause of the issue is either it isn’t turned on, the monitor is off, there is a power outage, the power strip is off, the power strip isn’t plugged in, it’s working but the app they want to use isn’t installed on this device, this isn’t their computer and they can’t find their files, there is a network/Internet outage that they have been informed of but they still feel the need to let us know that THEY TOO have the same issue as everyone else and that IT needs to fix THEIR (not related to their system in any way) issue because they have IMPORTANT work to do! No, it doesn’t matter that the Telco 3 counties over cut a fiber causing an outage over the entire tri-state area, we need to fix it NOW!
So yeah, I guess I am not a fan of Cloud Based offsite main storage and app hosting, but I digress.
But back to the subject at hand, I suspect that since Wyze was able to contact their supplier to up the order the same day to cover the certain number of items that were inadvertently sold prior to the announced launch time (VERY MUCH their fault) and as the initial allotment was only 5000 cars (microscopic in terms of how many cameras and ANY OTHER ITEM they sell) that they should/would/could probably place a more substantial order for a second run of these. Possibly with upgrades to allow use with the V3 and/or Pan cameras as was discussed/requested/whined about in this and other threads.
Oh well, I wish you good luck in your quest for a car. I hope they do offer an additional run of these. (just not on April 1st next time. Maybe Cyber Monday???
I had better leave now. I don’t want to annoy anyone more than I already have.
