    I still have no emails after the "you have placed your preorder" one I received last week when I ordered the phone in-store.

    I have never pre ordered through Best Buy so I don't know what to expect. I half wish I chose ship to house instead of pick up at the store. Does anyone know if I'm guaranteed a note 7 just because I peroredred it?

    I agree, I regret my decision now. I have only pre-ordered once before with them, but that was in 2010. I am not happy I have the Watch and not the Memory, but that was the only choice. I am going to try and swap Friday morning
    I wonder if they will open at 8am instead of 10am.
    I believe, back in 2010, for the EVO, they opened early.

    Usually they tell you that they are guaranteeing you get a phone but aren't guaranteeing when. It could be on launch day or it could be later.

    I never had a problem with Best Buy preorders until the LG G4 last year. I was the first at my store to preorder and then I walked in at store open on launch day only to be told they hadn't received shipment yet. Fortunately, another store about 5 minutes away received extra and held for me so I picked them up there. I received a call about 12pm from my original store and they finally got their shipment in. I told them they could give them to someone else.

    I initially pre ordered from Best Buy. But after remembering all the previous horror stories from previous pre orders I canceled and went with Verizon.

    To many times I have seen best buy gets only a few of each color of a particular device and people are left stranded waiting forever it seems. It is my every hope with the Note 7 being as big a deal as it seems they will get plenty of devices at least to satisfy their pre orders. The should at least.

    I will cancel my Bestbuy pre-order if I don't have the phone in store by launch day. Like they told me, they won't guarantee me one on launch day. Only that I'll have one after its released..

    I would think it would be charged and shipped tomorrow if it is to be here by Friday with 2 day delivery.

    Has anyone's order status changed from "processing" for an in-store pickup?

    What the guy at BB told me was that when they submit their order to Samsung, they tally up how many preorders they have and add like 15% to it. So, if they have 100 preorders they'll order 115 to the store. Which mean (hopefully) everyone that preorders one is guaranteed one on launch day.

    Exactly what I have.

    Has anyone ordered through them in the past and what typically happens? Just don't want it to be Friday and it still on processing to find out it's been delayed. Would rather cancel and take my chances as a walk-in somewhere

    I have a question too regarding Best Buy. If I'm not able to pick it up on Friday. Would they hold my phone until Saturday morning?

    I have preorder from Worst Buy, Note 4, S6e, Note5, and S7e. Each time I was able to get it launch day. Except for S7e, which was released a few days earlier.

    good to know ctk4949! Do remember if you're order status changed from "processing" to "ready for pickup" on launch day or did you see "preparing" or anything else before launch day?

    If it's supposed to arrive by Friday shouldn't the shipping statuses have started updating by now? >_>

    If I may ask, how are you able to check your pre-order status online? I've tried and it keeps giving me an error about not being able to check online. But I am able to check it calling their 800 number. TIA!

    If you pre-ordered in-store, is there a way to check status? Or did all of you pre-order online?
