    Default Anyone Managed to get a Note 2 from a Best Buy store?

    I have been given the run around now for two days at the store I preordered from, still I have no clue when or if they will ever have a phone for me. Has anyone managed to pick up a phone from Best Buy?

    Well I am on Sprint and I also pre-ordered my phone and it came in Tuesday, but they couldn't sell to me due to the street date to sell is November 11th. So well be picking up my white Samsung Galaxy Note 2 tomorrow, Sunday. Sorry to hear that you are getting the run around. I live in Ga.

    Don't get your hopes up, My best buy stores told me the 6th, then the 9th, and now the 11th. Called into their customer service and was told they are lying, that there is no official date for the Note II for any carrier.

    I've had at least 5 diff area Best Buy's/BBY Mobile state they weren't allowed to sell them until the 11th. I have no idea why as AT&T stores have stated they sold out of their initial (albeit dismal, 1-2 unit) stock already.

    As a disclaimer, while I am oddly excited for this phone and thought I was past such things, the number of stores I've been to is merely a coincidence, but thought I'd ask.

    My Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is already at the store it came in Tuesday and I went to the store to purchase it, the store rep even activated my phone and everything and we went to the register to pay for it and he found out that they was not suppose to sell the note 2 for Sprint till November 11th. So I will be back tomorrow to get it. So it's at the store

    I hope you get yours today, I'm about to give up any hope of ever getting an AT&T one from Best Buy. Let us know if it works out, good luck.

    I was told it wasn't released yet too, I want to pull out my iPhone and show them all the people who already received them. Even those who ordered from online through the eBay Best Buy Mobile site with a 25% discount. Never again will I put any faith in Best Buy, if I can't get a straight answer from someone today, they may be joining my list of merchants I will never use again. It's not than I don't have my phone, it's that they are so poorly organized that I can't get a straight answer.

    Spoke to a manager today, not the mobile manager, but a manager. She somehow managed to find they had five on order, but unlike anyone outside of Best Buy, she was unable to get any details on the order for arrival. I just don't understand how the store isn't informed on a delivery date. It also amazes me they will sell "preorders" without knowing how much or when any stock will arrive at their store. I can honestly say I will never buy from Best Buy again, I have lost complete faith in them. I know they won't miss me, but there are plenty of other businesses that sell the same products and can do so without seeming to be completely incompetent.

    I just went to the AT&T store and got this, but went to Best Buy afterwards and someone said they had the AT&T version in stock. I called all morning and nobody has them. Truly embarrassing for Best buy.

    Their new motto should be, "We know nothing about everything." They will never get another dollar from me again.

    That's crazy as most AT&T stores have store displays, and are already sold out.

    Dude at Coon Rapids best buy was pretty sure he had AT&T versions in stock. I wanted the gray one, but the AT&T store only had white, not a big deal. I'm just happy I don't have to deal with BB anymore.

    Today was the in store release date, we've had them since thursday but couldn't sell them till today, we only received the sprint version, the lack of communication on release date aren't because of bestbuy but the carrier, sometimes we don't know until there delivered to the store.:thumbup:

    With that kind of a system, how do they know how many preorders to sell? People I have dealt with so far seem really uninformed. I would think working in the mobile phone dept, you might learn the difference in the carriers and the phone models. The people I have dealt with haven't seem to grasp either.

    Hoping for some good news tomorrow.

    When you place a pre-order your name and order number will be placed on the phone as soon as the store receives the phone, I can't speak for other stores but our process works and has worked well for 4 years now, this also depends on if the phone's date is pushed back(iPhone 5 as a example).

    yeah its crazy, it seems like AT&T stores hardly received any phones themselves so Best Buys, at least in my area, never even got the phone at all.
