    Sadly every tweet from T-Mobile says the 18th is the ship date. Maybe T-Mobile is shipping them on time this time?
    Might be the company line they are parroting, we'll see I guess.

    It's been speculated for a while that T-Mobile has never deliberately intended to ship phones out early and that the shipping partners usually were the ones who jumped the gun and put them out for delivery early. I worked at ups for a holiday season once and there was a section of the hub that had containers with "don't deliver until ____". Things would get so busy that my line sup would have us load them up days in advance just to get them out and free space.

    Don't think they want to promise shipping early, they will keep saying 18th. Under promise over deliver !!

    Yeah. I won't get my hopes up for an early ship. Looks like it will be me and my AT&T Note 5 for my Vegas trip.

    If they don't ship early and it ships on the 18th for delivery on the 19th, I'll either have it held at UPS location or use 1 of my 2 confirmed delivery windows that's part of my UPS my choice premium membership ($10 on slickdeals not long ago). Sometimes UPS doesn't deliver to my house until 8pm or later.

    It's still silly though to hold it just sitting there if it's ready to be shipped.

    Either way it's speculation on if it was UPS or T-Mobile. I tend to be believe it's T-Mobile who wanted to beat the other carriers and give it's customers something to brag about. Perfectly fits what John Legere wants to do. They can't do with Apple because of the tight ship Apple runs. Unless Samsung has specifically decided to make sure carriers dont ship early, I believe T-Mobile will again ship early. Nothing to do with UPS in my opinion.

    Exactly. Many of those "do not deliver" bins were video game releases. One bin was stuff from Ethan and Allen. Ha.

    I got my T-Mobile iPhone 6 5 days ahead via ups. I still believe it's the shipping carriers. Hope we see stuff next week.

    Well I have something to help me get over the wait ... AT&T Gigapower came to my neighborhood finally. Same price I pay for Comcast (around $130 a month). I will have 1 Gbps up/down home internet on Tuesday .

    They do. My buddy just got it along with his friend. They get around 900 down / 850 up at their house. Even if for some reason it was a little less it wouldn't hurt. With Comcast I got 75 Mbps down / 10 Mbps up for $130 .. Now 1 Gbps for $130? Steal.

    Our area isn't affected like most other populated areas where "peak" speeds suffer. Even with Comcast -- the speed is always the same.

    Google is trying to come here -- they are still talking with city leaders. I will take AT&T's for now but jump to Google if they deploy here.

    Ouch. I've had 30/6 on Comcast for nearly 2 years. Bill for the first year was $32~. My bill for the second year was $37.54~. I'm satisfied.
