    Default Best Buy titanium, preorder and release date.?.

    I was in a Best Buy a few days ago, and they could only preorder a WHITE Note 2, not titanium.
    Does anyone know why this is?

    It looks like this morning that I can preorder a titanium on their website, but I need to do ti in store, since I have buy-back on my EvoLTE.

    Should I expect a later availability date on the titanium at Best Buy?

    I am jonesing badly for this thing!

    thanx all!

    I am guessing you're on at&t? The fact that the titanium one showed up is a good sign in suppose, if you have to pre order in the store anyways, why not pay them a visit and ask there directly?

    I posted in the Sprint forum, I guessed most would realize that I am on Sprint.
    I also visited the store a couple of days ago. I can't visit them daily!
    I was hoping for some insight here from the forum.

    Ok, no need to get on the frisky side. I was using the Android Central App and didn't notice what forum I was in. Besides, I remember from constantly looking at the Best Buy website that only one color was available on AT&T at first, so I put 2 and 2 together and got 3. Either way, according to all my reading and asking around, the phone is supposed to be at Best Buy stores next Sunday, the 11th. That's the word on the net, even a Best Buy employee had chimed in in the Best Buy thread we got going on in this forum. Not sure if the titanium one is going to be available the same day.

    As long as you go back when other employees are there, they won't know that you were just there the day before...lol. But I know what you mean, I had other people call Best Buy to see what story they get since I felt stupid calling all the time. Only one more week to go, I am sure we'll find out more this week.

    Thanx, Manny.
    I'll keep on checking with my fingers crossed.
    I had a LS1 Z28 6 speed a few years ago. Red with Black stripes. FUN car!

    I hope you're right, and that the rumors are right. I can't tell you how annoying this is to have to wait with no real official dates available. Why can't they give us this? It seems pretty unfriendly towards the consumer who wants to buy the product. I guess they've decided to risk a handful of people getting fed up and buying it at a Sprint store because they know some of us need to wait for financial reasons (needing to pay by BB credit card, or using the buy back plan, etc.) Still, I don't understand why they can't give a date, unless they are somehow contractually prohibited from doing so by Sprint or some such...

    You seem fairly certain. You think I can be pretty sure to get one if I go to my local BB when they open at 10:00AM that morning? Not sure I can make it till the afternoon, though... Hopefully they won't all be sold out by then!

    Well I pre-ordered mine on Friday and the mobile rep stated that the got the official word that the Samsung Galaxy note 2 will be available in there store on November 11th this Sunday. And I will get an email when my phone is available for pickup. So let's hope it is true.

    I just got off the phone with Best Buy corporate office and they are saying that they are shooting for a release date of November 11th for Sprint Samsung Galaxy note 2 but it could be November 16th. But to look on there website in a few days and there should be an official confirmation date.

    I just called my local Best Buy here in Ga and now they stated they don't know when they are getting them in. Just Friday I was at the store and pre-ordered my Samsung galaxy note 2 and they was saying that they would be available for sale on November 11th. I hate Best Buy now :banghead:

    I'm guessing that's either a) as usual confused store reps, or b) not all stores will be getting the Note 2 on the 11th. You might check with other stores in your area in case that one really doesn't have it Sunday. I'm lucky in that I have a dozen or so stores within an hour so from me, so I'm thinking that I will have a decent chance of getting one, but then again, we haven't gotten any official word from Best Buy for some reason, so I'm not making any bets quite yet...

    I'm so glad I got mine thru sprint this time. Going thru this for the HTC Evo lte just about drove me nuts. I'm hoping you guys get your precious soon. It's a really great phone.

    Go and pre order so you'll be guaranteed to have one.

    Bad news. Just went to my local BB and they said they actually are not going to be carrying it in stores (at least in our district - a major one being in the Washington DC area) , only online! I'm this close to giving up and going to Sprint!

    I have a friend who works at Best Buy and he sent me an MMS of a White GN2 that they just got in. He said they only got white in and I didn't ask for what carrier. I asked about a November 11th release date and he said that's what they're aiming for. Will load up the pic later, if you want.

    I find that hard to believe, unless your best buy is a tiny store or something. My store has a dummy display unit so I know they will carry it.

    Could you ask how many they got and what carrier? Would love to see the pic!

    But is it a SPRINT dummy display? I'm wondering if the display is for the AT&T one due out on the 9th or the VZN one due out on the 25th or 27th?

    No, the Best Buy is a pretty large one in Reston, VA. But he said he thought it wouldn't be in their entire district. I'm not sure how big a district is, but we have tons of stores. I know it could be yet more misinformation, but the guy seemed reasonably knowledgeable and confident. Not that that means much I guess! It's just increasingly aggravating. If it doesn't get here on the 11th and I go in and ask, they might say - oh, wait till next week. Then it just repeats itself and we have no idea when (or if) it ever comes out. Just indefinite waiting, and that's not really acceptable. Best Buy corporate needs to say something. I realize I could potentially order it online, but it's more difficult for me because I have to buy elligibility for one of the lines on my account (not my own), then transfer that elligibility to my line when purchasing. This can be done in person, but when I tried to do something similar for my wife to get her an SIII a couple of weeks ago, the transaction failed online. And it wouldn't tell me why. I had to go in to the store. If I can't go into the store because they don't have the phone, I might be in a catch 22...

    Sure, you can post it, but I think it's not going to help much because for all we know it's an AT&T one - which I think is released on the 9th. The nice thing about the Sprint one being unbranded actually makes it less easy to "prove" it is coming. I guess if you could get your friend to take a picture of the box, presumably that will have some Sprint logo on it?

    As I mentioned below, it's not as easy as it would seem. I may end up having to at least try it, but I'm sure I will need to do it over the phone with them vs. online, and with a lot of coordination with Sprint.

    Does anyone know of any other retailers other than Sprint stores that are actually selling the N2 or at least have announced the release date??

    I don't know if other retailers that have announced an official date. I pre ordered my phone early last week, anxiously awaiting the email I am supposed to receive when it comes in. I will go there on Saturday night and make sure they will have it Sunday.
