Unfortunately, Geek Squad is very limited with their communication to the main service center. The service center is not equipped with a call center that would be capable of supporting all of the Best Buy stores. Escalations are an e-mail to the service center which a representative replies to the Agent with an update of the PC or additional information. As for the, "Parts Ordered" status I could only assume it did not qualify for a junkout. This could be because it wasn't listed properly in the repair notes, it doesn't have enough qualifying hardware repairs, or an overlook on the part of the service center. The escalation will have them research this and inform the store, which they can then communicate to you.

They don't have a direct # b/c like the other user on this thread stated, GS City doesn't have a call center to support all the BB stores in the US calling in all the time. GS City is a repair facility and I guess they see answering inquiries by e-mail much quicker than answering phone calls all day long instead of working on client's repairs.

Actually, depending on where you live, the service center might or might not have a call center. The facility in Chino, California has a number you can call and they can look into the status of your device. Now, they don't go around the actual work areas to see the progress of the repair, but they can give you updated information before it is posted on your ticket number and the e-mail is sent out.
A lot of people here are under the impression that there is only one service center and this is not accurate. Depending on the region you live in on the service center you get assigned. It also has to do on what you need fixed. Some devices might need to get sent to a service center further away just because the one nearest you is not equipped to fix that device in particular.
The service center in Chino, California has a direct number. I don't know about Louiville, Kentucky or any other centers in the country.

I've privately asked one of the Community Connectors to clarify this. I've been with the company a while now and have never heard of what you're stating to be true so I'm just going to wait on one of them to tell us.

Your best bet right now is to wait for someone from corporate to get in touch with you. I know it might take a couple of days, but they are in a better position to contact these centers directly and get you detailed information about your laptop.
