    For those of you that have used the Advanced replacement program, how long did it take? I was told 3 business days. It's been 3 business days and my order still says processing. I was hoping for a tracking number by now.

    So, it's been 5 business days since Microsoft started my Advanced Replacement. I was supposed to receive my new surface in 3 - 5 days but the status of my order has said "processing" and never changed. I called them this morning to find out whats up. The rep couldn't figure anything out. She simply said it shows her the same thing as me - "processing". She said the only solution was to escalate me up to the "Care" group who will contact me in - you guessed it - 3 to 5 business days!

    This sucks.

    Count me in as another disappointed customer who got suckered into an "advanced exchange" option. I checked on the status of my order today because I have yet to received a shipping noticed (they promised to ship the replacement in 24 to 48 hours) and guess what? They have not entered my replacement order yet!! WT.....!!. I feel sorry for the "Care" group fella who will be calling me because I'm gonna be yelling

    Glad to know I'm not the only one is this boat. The wait for my initial Surface was bad enough but I think this is even worse. My Surface still works fine - except for the keyboard so I can play around with it but I hate to spend time setting it up when I'm just going to have to redo everything when the replacement comes :(.

    Well what do you know. MS has finally shipped my replacement after I called earlier today and discovered that they have not even entered my order 3 days after they were supposed to have done it!! I guess I should have called earlier.

    I am dealing with the same thing, I sent mine back last Tues. for a warranty replacement. Micro sd card not reading, and they sent me a label for overnight. They got it on Wed. , and I still show processing, and have not gotten my new one! This sucks because I am a student, and needed it over the weekend. Instead I had to stay home to do all my work on my desktop.
