    My buddy's blue got pushed out. I'm a black onyx order and my order still shows on time. A few others that have blue on Reddit have had theirs delayed too. Perhaps it is a blue color specific issue.
    There is literally no point. Even phones bought in store can get the gifts after launch if they do it on time.

    I can say if you pre-order in the first few days with T-Mobile you have a better shot at getting it before everybody else but for other carriers there really isn't a reason to pre-order in my opinion

    I would just be pissed if I pre-ordered and I happened to go to a T-Mobile store and somebody was buying the Note 7 before I even received mine
    Yeah this is stupid, if it doesn't work out I'll probably just go to the store release date and get it. Then just cancel my order when they ship it to me in September. Doesn't make sense.

    I knew I should have gotten the black. Oh well, I'll get it when I get it. I'm sure the blue one won't be in stores on launch day if it's getting pushed back on preorders.

    I would bet if the blue really ends up backordered and you don't get it by launch, you won't be able to walk into a store and get it. My guess is every blue one will be for a preorder.

    I'd probably take the black one if I were to walk in and buy the phone..

    Same, exactly why this doesn't make any sense.

    It was explained to me by a Tmobile employee that even if you were the first person in the world to pre order thier systems would show up that it's back ordered. It's just how their system works. It works as a "place holder" for each person ordering. At some point they take what's ordered and Samsung ships (usually early). He couldn't speak for other carriers, but that's how it works for them. In other words, if you ordered a week or so before it comes out, you will get your phone on or before release date. If you pre-order just before it's released, no promises made.

    Do they fill people's from earliest to later though? Just wondering how they do it. If I have to wait I have to wait. That's life but just wondering.

    Still just "Being Processed" on the My T-Mobile app here with no ship date at all. Ordered coral blue JOD on 8/3. Switched to the no down payment option the next day which I suspect may have cost me my place in line.

    Sorry, I updated my post, but the up and down release date means nothing this far out. It defaults depending how there automated systems order the phones from Samsung. It may jump around, but it means nothing. This employee seemed very knowledgeable, and hes been working there for many years according to him.

    If orders aren't filled sequentially I would be really surprised.

    Yeah I think that might be it because I called in on the 5th to ask about the new zero down JOD plan and I was told I might lose my place in line. But he said since it's still so early I would probably still get it on launch day so I wouldn't worry..

    It's not an exact "line" according to when you ordered. It's more of a grouping. Like if you ordered in the first 3 to 5 days yours get ordered first, but that doesnt mean that if ordered after you won't get your phone on time, it's just how it's ordered....if that makes sense. I peppered this guy with questions. He was cool about it though.

    I ordered the blue model. So far, my account still shows the original 8/18 - 8/19.

    I think that all colors will be on time or early, regardless of their wacked-out system ETAs... Tell me this doesn't happen EVERY SINGLE TIME...

    Believe me, I had friends order thier s7edges after me, and I got mine later than them. One of them ordered a week after me and still got it 2 days earlier. Drove me nuts.

    The changing of the ETA literally means NOTHING this far out!! You couldn't be more correct... You actually got a rep that knew what they were talking about... This always happens... They always come early...

    I don't want to get anyone excited, but he said in his experience he wouldn't be surprised if we started seeing them ship by Monday. Hope he's right.

    That might be the worst ordering system if that's the case.

    I hope you're right. The phone and Twitter reps I spoke to told me that right now the shipping dates are an estimate because the phones are just starting to arrive. They said that once they start processing people's orders it will most likely change back to the original ship date of 8-18 to 8-19 or possibly sooner.

    I can understand batching to an extent but the batches should be by relatively small quantity or at most 1 day at a time. If they really batch 3-5 days at a time with no regard to order #, that's just pitiful.
