    Update. Taget called and emailed. Pickup my phone a got $300 in gift cards. Took all over 30 minutes. Only snafu is the $200 trade in credit could not be used to reduce the price of the phone on ATT next. It's fine. We spend like $500 a month at target anyway. Really smooth. They actually had the phone this am but didn't know where it was.

    For the phone exchange do you just hand it over to them at the time? Thanks.

    Yes, it was a piece of cake. I paid $75 at a hawk shop for an LG G2 Sprint. No questions asked at Target. $125 net to me.

    So every time I called the target mobile where I preordered the call was disconnected. I call target national who got the local target mobile rep on the phone, who told me they got two sprint phones and five att phones total, inclusive of preorders.
    My thing is why sell a preorder and then not have the stock. It's b s.

    Talked to my target, they only got 1 silver ATT model in. He said they had no idea when the others will be shipped as they showed as back ordered. Thanks AT&T! Maybe if you didn't have to use your garbage packaging, you'd be able to ship on time!

    OK, looks like our Target only has 2 ATT phones right now so he's hoping more will arrive soon. We'll see.

    Has anyone been able to take advantage of the 200 dollar GC by doing a 2 year contract extension over device payments with Verizon? Trying to see which option would be better for me.

    My Target just called me and told me that Samsung had a shipping issue and no phones showed up today. Told me that they expect them to show up tomorrow.

    ATT doesn't change the packaging. They are packed to ATT spec when the phones are manufactured at the factory..

    Wasn't like this for the S7 devices. They had much nicer packaging, the same as all carriers. Not this ugly packaging for the note.

    Maybe you misunderstood me (or maybe I misunderstood you). Some folks think that ATT gets the phones at their warehouses then has people here in the US take them out of the Samsung boxes and puts them into an ATT boxes which supposedly holds up delivery to stores etc. THAT is not true. They may very well have different boxes but that has nothing to do with availability since they are "boxed to order" by Samsung in Korea during their production run for ATT..

    Didn't get an email but I called the target I placed the pre-order and they had received some. The guy said I could go get it anyway. I'm in Illinois

    Got my note 7, just wanted to share my experience:
    I preordered but didn't get an email (yet). Called multiple stores and finally found one that had stock, ask him to hold it for me. I then called my preorder store and they said they didn't get any yet. So went to the store that I got to hold one for me.

    Target charges 399$ for a Verizon two year contract upgrade.
    I traded in an old iPhone 4s we had sitting at work. Got 200$ gc for it no problem. Used the 200$ toward the $399 so phone was 230ish after taxes. Got the additional $100 gc after all was said and done, and it couldn't be used toward phone purchase.

    The while process took about 2 hours, the guy at target mobile was nice but didn't seem very knowledgeable, but I was able to watch the entire process on the computer and even had to correct him a few times lol. The long part was it took verizon an hour and change to approve my activation for some reason. So we sat around waiting for them for a long time.

    The regional manager happened to stop by and check on the store and I talked with him and he said only 3 stores in his district didn't get phones today, and they should be filled throughout the upcoming WEEK! He was very happy that only 3 stores didn't get some phones, said that was very good for a launch.

    So target preorders blow. You don't get crap guaranteed. If I was waiting on a preorder still (well I am, but now don't need it) I would start trying to find other stores with one in stock. You don't need preorder to get 200 gc and 100 gc


    TL;DR
    Target Verizon 2 year price: $399
    Can use $200 gc for phone price, but not $100
    They take any old phone on their trade in list. IPhone 4s was valued at 40$ on the trade in checker, but still got 200$ when buying new phone
    Target preorder system is a lie.

    Good luck folks!

    Thanks for that. I'm pissed at Target. Don't allow a preorder if you can't fulfill it. Bottom line. And when it eventually rolls in a week from now, will samsung still have the watch or memory card available for me?

    I got pretty much the same story. I am waiting on the black one. Hopefully it doesn't take too long. The guy at target had no idea when they would get black ones in stock.

    I haven't gotten a phone call or email from Target yet, but had some errands to run and my pre-order store isn't real far away, so I just decided to stop by. Didn't have my black pre-order in, but did have at least one Silver AT&T model that wasn't spoken for.

    Asked about my pre-order and said they would probably get it in tomorrow, but the person also didn't seem to actually know, seemed to just be guessing based on other phone launches.

    Could have gotten the Silver, but decided to hold off and see if my Black one comes in tomorrow. If it doesn't, may just go ahead and get the Silver, but haven't decided for sure.

    On the trade-in, I asked about my HTC One M7, and was shot down. I did, however, get the okay on my BLU Life One X, so I'm good to go there.

    Seems odd they would receive more today, but if they do let us know. I'd be curious if anyone else gets their target phone today.

    Oh no i understood what you was saying. But while I agree AT&T didn't do the packaging themselves, I would think they may have had some input on it. Just wondering why its like this for the note and not the S7. Like who made this decision.

    I bet they don't show up for several days. Or weeks. Just am frustrated and not sure who to be mad at. Sprint? Target? Or Samsung? for not having my preorder on release day.

    Just guessing here but I'd bet AT&T Corporate gets a humongous bulk shipment from Samsung then decides (depending on how high the demand is AT THEIR STORES) how many they want to send to the non-AT&T Corporate retail stores because that is where they make the most money as they aren't wholesaling them out for a much smaller profit. AT&T Corp stores get first dibs If you look around in their stores they all have them. 3 local ATT Corp stores have plenty of stock around here.
