    We are "PRE" ordering them. But from what I've seen and no activity so far....that was pointless lol. I can only imagine the line of pissed off people waiting at the T-Mobile store to get one and cancel their order.
    True, but there would really be no reason to cancel your order if it's expected to arrive the 19th since that is when the stores will have them is the 19th unless you have blue which is harder to come by. You would be wasting a trip to the store instead of having it arrive at your house the same day.

    Samsung may not really care that they ship early but everyone else- other carriers and retailers- may care. There are street date contracts in play between Samsung and everyone selling their phones. Samsung may be getting a lot of push back that they are allowing T-Mobile to grossly violate the contract, which could show favoritism. It really could drive more people to sign up for T-Mobile to get phones early. Now, Samsung may be fining T-Mobile for violating the contract and T-Mobile may not care because it's free word of mouth advertising for them. Samsung has to keep the contracts fair and consistent if they aren't punishing the offenders.

    Samsung may finally have decided to clamp down on the early shipping and it may be starting with this device.
    Exactly.

    I ordered blue. My ship date was between 18-19 since last Thursday when I pre-ordered. On Monday, it changed to 9-6 to 9-20. Then back to 8-18 to 8-19. Then on Tuesday it went to 8-23 to 9-6. So yes, I will probably be one of those people. I refuse the possibility of waiting until September 6.

    Right now I don't think pre-orders of blue are going to be an issue. Of course that could change.

    You can't tell anything by those shipping dates right now. You will get shipping notification, telling you it is shipping or it is delayed.

    To my understanding they could ship separately as long as you have two different order numbers.
    If same acct. And ordered at the same time. Then they will only ship together. I don't get my s7 edge tull the note 7 ships

    I hope you're right. Because I will definitely be the first person in line at the store close to my job if it gets delayed. I had like a sense of comfort when the shipping date was between the 18-19 because I knew at last I would get it by then. But now knowing nothing is really giving me anxiety.
    If it gets delayed, they still can't charge me until shipping then right?

    I can see why to cancel then. I ordered black on 8/4 so I got no reason to cancel. My shipping date hasn't changed. It doesn't look like we will be getting them that early now. Hopefully maybe Tue or so we will get them.

    Does Samsung's theme store allow you to make your own themes?
    I think the Note 7 allows you to port over items between themes (this is new) to create a "custom theme" but if not,there are apps on the play store that allow you to create themes (ish)

    What bugs me is that on the website is says people that ordered blue TODAY will also get them between 8-23 to 9-6. So what gives? Why do I have to wait with the people that didn't order it earlier?
    I ordered black at first, then T-Mobile cancelled my order cause I did it online and didn't sign the EIP. I never got the EIP by email. I had to go to a store and pre order again the same day. The guy at the store kept trying to convince me to get blue and I was so in a hurry that I said fine cause it looks pretty.
    But now...screw that. I don't care about the color anymore.

    Black and Silver are not being delayed and if you really want it just order one of those colors to get your phone on time.

    You'll never go back to anything else. I've had every phone out there. All of the Droids, iPhone, Nexus, and LG. Samsung, especially the Note, is the best there is.
    The note is only best if you need s pen. If not the s line. Gone are the days where the note was better. ****, look at the s7 and note 7. Only difference is s pen.

    I think I also read that TouchWiz comes with icon pack support now as well.

    TMO had on their website to do two separate orders for two phones on one account in case one got delayed. You would have to do them individually or they will be shipped together.

    Well they cancelled the first one anyway. I never got the email to sign the EIP. When I called over the phone, the rep told me the order was cancelled because of that and that he couldn't redo it for me. He told me I could only go redo it in a store. I won't cancel it now and reorder because I don't trust that the device will get to me on time at this point even if I reorder another color. I would freak out if I did that and it pushed my date back even further. I think the safest thing to do is keep the order and go to the store that day in case they don't have one at least I'll still have that order in place. FML.

    Mobile browser. I didn't see any option to upload a pic.
    Ok, the option isn't there with the mobile site. You will have to check "request desktop" and then the option is under "advanced".

    There is an option on AC forums app though if you want to get that. It is the bottom left of the reply box.

    Sounds like a reasonable explanation... Kinda what I was figuring from the threads info posted by KK

    I might not can get blue and might get black. Maybe we should check with each other when our phones come and see if we want to do a swap lol

    That's actually pretty interesting. I've seen quite a few people say their shipping method is listed as USPS (my order info is blank due to JOD). Most have said that Tmo reps have told them it's an error and will change to UPS but what if Tmo knew they wouldn't get their stock until near-release and decided to use USPS because they have more weekend movement?? Uh oh, conspiracy theory time!
    I wouldn't be surprised switch to usps, as they now deliver 7 days a week.
