    i spoke with 5 Best Buy stores in utah, and all Samsung Experience Reps i spoke too all said their "shooting for the 4th" in stores...

    and stores are now taking pre-orders.

    it sure would be nice if true!

    If that is true, then it ties into the rumor of a 9/29 ship date for the Verizon pre-orders which would have those shipments arriving by 10-1. BB can't get theirs before Verizon so this is looking up.

    Can you tell where you have seen these rumors? A 9/29 ship date from Verizon would make me very happy, but my sales rep hasn't heard any such rumor.

    I hope this ends up being true however I doubt it. We just got out of a business meeting with our regional verizon rep where we ordered many of these for our business, all ship by 10/10 at least according to him.

    I could be wrong, but I am beginning to suspect that this rumor may not be correct.

    just spoke to general sales guy at a Colorado Best Buy Store - their system showed a October 4 release date - he said that meant the phone would be in their store this Friday........gonna call back and ask for the Samsung desk and see if the Samsung desk says the same thing.

    What is the advantage or disadvantage of utilizing my upgrade at Best Buy and staying with Verizon oppsed to waiting and doing so at Verizon next week??

    So I called 4 or 5 stores in my area, and some said "we don't have a date, but sometime in the next week", while a few others said "Our system says Friday Oct 4th". One store in particular told me that their computer says the 4th, but to call back and see if they actually received a shipment, and if they have any, they will be for sale". I'm in the SF Bay Area in California, if this helps anyone.

    I'm considering cancelling my pre-order that I have with Verizon, and just buying it at Best Buy. Will they price match to Verizon's full MSRP (buying from VZW straight is $100 less than BB), considering that VZW will probably not have any for sale in brick-and-mortar stores yet?

    Called my local BB and asked them about the Oct. 4 date. Said they have it in their system as well, but can't guarantee they'll have the phone in stock.

    I've had my note 3 p reordered from verizon since the 13th. I haven't received any email notification with a fedex tracking numb as of today. So I'm assuming nothing has been shipped.

    This is VZW

    I hope that if I'm able to pick one up from BB this Friday, it won't be too late to cancel my preorder with VZW

    Why would best buy get note 3 b4 preordered phones were in hand. Kinda silly if you ask me. I heard the 9/29 ship that was busted.

    Yes - called a different store and spoke to the Samsung Experience guy - he said he is an employee of Samsung but works in the best Buy store, and that their ( Best Buy) system said October 4th.......(!) - I am gonna call several more store to validate but who knows......

    Okay..................maybe some clarification......I went to the best Buy web site and it lists Oct 4 as the availability date for the Note 3 on Sprint - but the Verizon Note 3 listed has no date listed at all.....called another Best Buy and their CSR had Oct 4th listed as the delivery date for a Sprint or AT & T Note 3 but their system showed no date for the Verizon Note 3 -----curses %^^$#*& on Verizon - looks like the end of next week.....hopefully
