    With all the hype going on. I think I'm going to in early morning this time around....lol. I am in the South FL area, not sure if it makes a difference. But that day is a Friday, usually my down days. Just by reading the forum here the pre-order process seems complicated. I wonder if I can pre-order through the store. I will give them a call this AM.

    So is it safe to say that if you pre order now (todays date) and going forward you won't get the device on the 17th??? Even with overnight shipping?? R preorders backordered??
    Hey if it is isn't that a good thing? Android devices rarely go out of stock unless they don't produce enough but I doubt Samsung has this issue?

    I decided to just keep my pre-order. Tmobile is very vague, but some people have been told that the stores are getting limited quantities. This whole thing is just obsurd. They know the anticipation is there, so "limited quantities" shouldn't even be in their vocabulary. With nothing written in black and white, all we can do is speculate until people start receiving their phones.

    It's maybe a way to get people the pre order it asap vs walking in and asking if tb3y have it in Stock

    Go to the store. You'll get it faster.

    Maybe so but I will lose out on the $200.00 Samsung trade in I'm sure. I think it only works for pre-orders.

    Has anyone here pre ordered from T-Mobile site within the last couple of days? Have they given ship dates yet or is everything still up in air? Also can you cancel a pre order?

    I wanted too. But when I tried to cancel they told me there was a chance I might get the one I pre ordered. So I'm going to wait and see if I do. If it does get canceled I'll go to the store.

    Yeah that's my dilemma now, don't know if I should pre order since its been live for a week now and risk it being backordered or not delivered on the 17th or go to a store if I have a chance and try to get one there

    Well, that kinda tells me all I need to know, if I pre order now I'm sure I won't be getting it on the 17th , guess I will just have to try and sneak out of work and hit up a store that Friday for my best chance. Will lose out on the extra money from Samsung but will still save $100 bucks with the trade in

    It depends on the shipping. I got the standard shipping so I have to wait 5-7 days for it. I didn't want to pay more lol

    When I preordered online last week the system wouldn't let me select the express shipping. First day available for preorder on the 24th, I preordered and selected express and checked out. Hours later I went to check the order and it only charged me for ground. Annoyed I called T-Mobile and told her the situation, and she said I can only cancel the order, wait 24hrs and do it again the next day. I did that, made sure I selected express shipping, and after check out it had selected ground shipping again! Furious, I called T-Mobile again to complain, and this rep told me that it isn't possible to choose express shipping because the phone will ship out early anyways, and with ground shipping will still get the phone in my hands on the 17th, and if it doesn't to call back.

    Take that for what it's worth, but I've been reading up on forums and numerous people said T-Mobile told them the same and also when they preordered other phones previously the phone did indeed ship before and arrived the day it was released.

    Well if this is true, will I get credited for the $24.99 I payed for the express shipping? Is it safe to assume that they will ship out ALL preorders to make sure they arrive on the 17th??

    That I do not know. What is strange is others are able to select and pay for express and I could not. If I wanted to try again I would need to cancel the second order again, wait another 24 hours, and try again the next day which I didn't want to do.

    Has anyone successfully pre-ordered an off-contact phone at full price for prepaid? You can't do it online and I've seen a post where someone said you have to call or go to a carrier store.

    But I'd like to know if this is possible and what the costs are (initial deposit, etc.)... from T-Mobile's website it says you'd have to pay for the phone and one month if service.
