    Ok I ordered in store with in store pickup I haven't recieved anything.. but I talked to them last night and both blue 10+and arora glow 10+ are ready for pickup today.. no appointment so I'll hit the store at 10 during my lunch..
    Awesomeness lol. Yeah as of right my blue note10+ is only one ready for pickup. Have to wait for them to see if my black note10 is on their shipment coming in today before 10. If not then at least I get my blue today and I'll pick black up when it is ready. Glad everything worked out for you. Enjoy phones

    For everyone who's device has been pushed back a week & not picking up on today, I was in Best Buy yesterday asking about my options if my order was delayed & was told you can come in when the store opens & process a new order in the store as they will have devices in stock outside of the preorders releasing today. They just couldn't tell me how many.

    May take a crack at it, since I already planned on making time in my schedule to go over there today anyway.

    We'll see, I guess.

    Yes but you lose the Samsung preorder promo which defeats the purpose. If you don't care about the promo then go ahead.

    Yeah I was hoping for a pick up today because I’ll be near Best Buy. Didn’t want to have to make another 2 hour trip next Friday.
    Stupid Best Buy. Should have went through Verizon. But the $600 off is why I chose Best Buy.
    I would just wheel into the store and demand your phone. Maybe you will get lucky.

    Picking up mine in store today. They said they sold very well, about 100 pre orders. I would think they would have some in stock too

    So does anyone know if they're able to give you a phone you preordered if they have leftovers, or is my pickup on 8/30 date set in stone? I don't want to go in there if there's no point in asking them. I dunno if it's something they can finagle, or if "my" phone is already assigned somewhere and will show up next week.

    Anyone know if you HAVE to immediately surrender your previous phone to get the $600 credit? Is there an option to take the Note 10 home and transfer your files/setting then turn in to the store or mail it? Thanks.

    Turn in on the spot... They suggest smart switch which I don't use... I back up my phone prior to in store visit

    I called Best Buy. They have none in stock so me stopping is a waste. She said my phone isn’t even there yet as they need to wait for a shipment. She said it may come before 8/30 just need to wait I guess.

    Smart Switch has a PC version https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=tnztOBNF that you install on your computer at home. You can prepare your old phone for the trade-in ahead of time this way: Install PC Smart Switch, hook your old phone up to the PC and save your data before the trade (and also do a Google cloud backup from the phone's backup/restore settings for extra insurance if you like), then factory-reset & clear your data off the old phone. This way you can bring a clean blank device to the store and the retail guy doesn't need access to your personal data while he fiddles with your devices to do the transfer for you (and you don't have to wait around in the store for them to do your transfer). They may want to open the Note 10 box to make sure it works with your carrier but then you can just take the new Note 10 home and hook it to the PC to put your data back on the new device. This is much more secure than having them do it in the store.

    I just got to my Best Buy. 10:30am locally. Seems to be pretty busy. There are about 3-4 waiting ahead of me with 3-4 others being taken care of.
