DHL contacted me today to give my email and identification number for customs but still no shipping mail info from Josh  :-/O

I was expecting it was about my aliexpress delivery and almost sent them wrong invoice because they asked for it but then noticed shipping from malaysia. a call back to them and seems like customs & VAT has been paid already  :-+

Just called DHL and this was also the case for me. They were sorry for sending me wrong SMS messages. I should get my scope on Tuesday  :-+

There did seem to be some confusion around SMS messages. I got texts about someone else's delivery but emails about mine. I almost rescheduled the shipment for the other recipient before I realised it wasn't mine!

Anyone else get contacted recently? Josh emailed me a couple days ago, saying that my name was chosen after they eliminated all invalid entries. Saying that email made my day is a bit of an understatement.  ;D

I've since filled in and sent out the paperwork; now I'm just waiting for a reply from them.

I registered the scope and downloaded the DVM option from
http://www.keysight.com/main/software.jspx?cc=FI&lc=fin&nid=-32390.536894984&id=2820272&pageMode=CV

I calibrated one of the probes and let the scope run for about  an hour. The compensation was still good.

Taxes and customs had been paid by sender for me and an other winner. Is this the case for all winners?

I see few UK winners, did you need to pay taxes/customs or do you know if invoice will follow?
It's been 11 days since my scope was delivered and I've heard nothing about VAT yet from DHL UK. Had no indication that it's been paid either so it may still be to come.

Either way, I'm happy and grateful to Keysight for an awesome scope. The tax is my responsibility so I'll gladly pay it if asked.

It was all paid for in my case too.

http://www.keysight.com/main/software.jspx?cc=FI&lc=fin&nid=-32390.536894984&id=2820272&pageMode=CV

Thanks for the link to the DVM option. :-+ I assumed it would only show up on the MyKeysight page once I registered and not be an open link like that.

I tried registering my scope last week and the website just tells me "Unrecognized Serial Number"
I got a response from someone at Keysight and they said

Congratulations on winning a DSOX1102G scope! 


Keysight apologizes that the appropriate information has yet to be uploaded into the Keysight systems so that the scope you won during Scope Month could be registered.
 
The information is being delivered to the teams that will enter the serial number, warranty, and licensing information into the appropriate systems.

Unfortunately, We don’t have an estimate yet of when the data upload will be complete.  We hope to have a better answer for you early next week.
 
Again, our apologies that you’re not able to get the scope registered just yet.

Woot.  It came today.  Everything looks good.  Probes were even compensated 100% correctly right off the bat.  Thanks again!

Have You Been Triggered Today?

Have you heard back from Josh yet? I've yet to see anything in my inbox from him.

Hopefully my entry wasn't dropped...

Just an update...
I still can't register my scope because it's an "unrecognized serial number" and I haven't heard back from anyone about my defective probe.

I'm going to wait a while longer before bothering them again. I hate contacting people about stuff like this anyway.

I emailed them last Thursday and they said they would be getting in contact with us some time this week (I have not received said contact as of this moment). He confirmed that he did have my information and everything was good to go. I can only assume that they are waiting to do it all in one go once they've gotten responses from everyone. I don't think you should be too worried at the moment. I will definitely post on here once I hear anything else from them. Hang in there!

Update on the unrecognized serial number thing - the serial numbers have to be added manually along with some other info. I'm told they will hopefully be all uploaded into our systems by the end of next week.

I just registered to say I got a very similar email (But with a different part number ;D)
I'm freaking stunned, and somewhat terrified of customs.
