    That would make me nuts. I look forward to getting mine in the mail, not only because it's like getting a present lol, but because I open it and I set it up without waiting for the reps etc gibberish they do
    Exactly!

    Last year I pre-ordered the note 5 on at&t right when it was available for preorder. I actually got the phone on Monday, August 17....that was 4 days before they were available in the store!!! Hoping for the same this year!!

    I'm on AT&T as well. Fingers crossed. Did yours come in the ugly carrier orange and white box or was it the nice Samsung packaging?

    Pre-ordered mine through Sprint/Best Buy. Does anyone know if they ever come in early through them?

    If you ordered in store, you won't get it early. If you ordered online, there's always a chance it could ship and arrive early but with Best Buy, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I pre-order because 1) I don't have to deal with having to go to the store on day of release since I do have a job and won't be taking off just to go get a new phone, 2) I like the fact that when it comes in the mail I am the one opening up the phone and setting up. There's nothing I hate more than when they take that experience away from me so I never buy phones in store anymore, I always pre-order. 3) I am guaranteed a phone. I remember when I pre-ordered my s7edge (silver titanium) it was very hard to come by. Lucky for me, I only had to wait a couple of days after release to get mine, but everyone else had to wait a bit longer if they wanted the silver since it was the most popular choice being that it was a new color option. I bought the blue coral Note 7 for my sister and so far it says it will ship on the 17th or 18th, so it's possible it might come before release by a couple of days or on the day of which is fine by me. My sister is away on vacation so I get to play with her phone before she gets back lol

    Save a trip to the store and T-Mobile preorders usually ship a week early.

    That looks like the screen for a new person to place an order, does the order you placed say anything about when it will ship?

    I just walked through the wizard and see the same message, I did not see it when I preordered yesterday morning - but may have missed it in my eagerness... My order status says "preparing for shipment" and the pre-auth on my VISA is showing Pending, so hoping that its just new orders since yesterday afternoon...

    otherwise i'll have to call to cancel and go down to Verizon next Friday...

    fingers crossed, Clarice

    Yeah when I log in to check order status it just says "preparing for shipment"

    It's been saying that for the last week.

    Because many get their phones 5-7 days before street release.
    Is that typical? I believe that's what happened with S7...

    Last couple of phones I preordered from T-Mobile showed up about a week before the release date. I'm expecting T-Mobile to start shipping around August 12th.
    I hope so!
