    Lesson learned...
    Called the front desk of my BB and they said phones are in and I could pick up my phone. I drive there and the mobile counter tells me thier POS system won't sell the phone until tomorrow. I tried to get them to budge but it didn't happen.
    Bright and early for me tomorrow too.
    I saw the box with my name on it too. (cry)

    Still no email or call from BB. I called today and allegedly they haven't gotten any N4's in for Sprint AT ALL. The list isn't long at all...I'm on it with just one other person. They told me they "should" get some in by the end of the week since their deliveries can come any time Monday through Saturday.

    If they don't, I'm probably going to cancel and pick one up at my local Sprint store because they "have plenty."

    From what I have heard, the email is generated automatically when your order is removed from the truck. Have not heard about it happening super late in the day.

    I can let you know tomorrow after I pick mine up - BBM worker said it would be no problem, they can just process it as a hardware change upon purchase. If they dont I'll raise hell in the store because I'm planning on getting 2 - 1 for me and 1 for wifey.

    Still waiting for my email for BB sprint pre-order. I called a few Sprint stores, and they didn't have any in stock. I don't really mind the wait, even though I am looking forward to getting it.

    Yea sadly I don't think Verizon ppl will be able to get it. You could probably press the issue if you ordered before the promo expired but it probably says no rain checks.

    Yeah. And also the people whose pre-orders weren't fulfilled by Saturday the 18th. I'm one of 'em. Still waiting for my e-mail. Another poster says:

    Great. I'm on Sprint and super-ticked at this point. Another week or so? That is so ridiculous!

    Nope, us Verizon customers are getting screwed on so many levels. You have to 'sell your case' in order to get BB to honor the 50. I will let you know how it works out "When" my white Note 4 arrives at Best Buy (still no email for me).

    register your note 4 on samsung.com with a new account (or if you have a current one that works) and they email you a coupon within minutes. Ive done that at list half a dozen times with my phone addiction. 100% of the time, it works, every time.

    I went to Best Buy, today, to buy the Verizon N4 off contact (I have unlimited data) even though I had not pre-ordered. They said no problem and would give me a $200 gift card in exchange for my Droid X2, which they carefully checked out, even looking for dead pixels.

    However, they insisted I would have to sign up for the Verizon Edge program, and they would have to activate the new phone. I could then pay Verizon monthly payments of 699/24 for 24 months. Or I could pay Verizon in full for the phone after the first month. The bummer for me was the Best Buy $200 gift card could be applied to the $56 sales tax on the $699 price of the phone, but not to the original price of the phone. The remainder on the card, of course, could be used on anything else in the store. I was disappointed that instead of getting a N4 for $499, I was going to ultimately pay $646 for the phone. The remaining $146 gift card was of no immediate use to me. Because there was nothing else at Best Buy that I anticipated needing, I decided not to buy the N4 at this time. Still, it appears Best Buy is still in some way, perhaps partly for their benefit, trying to honor the Samsung trade in promotion.

    After reading through all the experiences here and over on xda, I will admit I was concerned about how things were going to go, but it has, so far, been one of the better Best Buy pre-order experiences I've been through.

    Hubby and I are both with Verizon, on the same account. When we pre-ordered several weeks ago, they wouldn't allow us to pre-order 2 black GN4s, and said that was a Samsung/Verizon issue and nothing Best Buy could do about it. We begged, pleaded, etc. but to no avail, their system simply wouldn't accept a second black pre-order on the same account. DH said he'd be cool with trying the white one out, and if he wasn't happy, he'd exchange it. Ok, cool, we leave with one black and one white GN4 pre-ordered.

    Fast forward to today - we got the email that the black one was in and ready for pick up, but no sign of the white one. At the store, we waited in line for about 30-45 minutes before being helped (and we got in at a good time, in the five minutes after we got there, about 12 more people showed up, mostly for iPhones). Our Best Buy guy walked through the upgrade quickly, and I am the happy new owner of the black GN4. Traded in a $30 Kyocera phone for the $200 gift card without a problem.

    We asked if, by any chance, there were any unclaimed black ones, since the white ones haven't come in yet. BB guy took my husband's name and phone number and said he'd be working through to next week, so if any black ones became available before the white we pre-ordered came in, he'd give us a ring. He mentioned that they only had 6 black pre-orders at the store, and may have 10 in stock, so we're keeping our fingers crossed for tomorrow or Saturday. Still not clear on why, if there were extra, we couldn't nab one today, but he was ridiculously helpful, efficient, and competent that I didn't push the issue.

    Overall, it went well. Still frustrated about the white/black issue, because if we'd been able to pre-order two black ones, he'd probably have his phone too, but supposedly that's not a Best Buy restriction, so I can't say they did anything other than everything they could for us.
