    So I thought it would be easier if we could keep each other updated about blue coral availability in physical brick-and-mortar stores given that the vast majority only had black and silver on launch day.

    For instance I called 15 T-Mobile stores in the DC area and they all said they wouldn't get any until the backorders have been fulfilled. Some said to check back as early as Tuesday, others said it wouldn't be until well into September -_-.

    Hopefully this thread can help Team Blue Coral keep abreast of which stores are starting to carry them in which towns so we don't all have to keep calling and checking individually.

    It seems like no carrier stores had the blue coral but almost every best buy did. They're deal was awesome anyways. My wife was able to walk out of the store with her gear fit 2 in hand rather then send in for it.

    The Verizon Corporate store in Green Bay has at least one. They held it for my wife since they were running low on that color, but she opted for silver instead. So it was still there when we left at closing.

    Wait, really? Are you saying I can pick up a blue coral for T-Mobile from Best Buy? How would it work if I'm upgrading with Jump On Demand? Don't toy with my emotions stevenjak!

    EDIT: Looks from their website like Best Buy doesn't carry the T-Mobile Note 7 in any color

    Lucky! Sounds like Verizon may have been the only carrier store that had any blue coral Note 7s at all. T-Mobile stores were a completely hopeless case in this regard by every single account I've read everywhere in the country. Only preorderers got their blue coral, and not even all of them did.

    A Verizon rep told me yesterday that Verizon is waiting to fill many blue coral orders and waiting for stock from Sammy. Glad I preordered mine and holding it in my hand.

    The only T-mobile store by me didn't have any blues available. Bummer because I was hoping to switch out my Silver for one.

    I've tried 3 T-Mobile stored so far, no dice. I'm going to call the last ones which open in 8 minutes here in a bit. I hope I don't have to wait until September to get one!!

    Wonder why Samsung sent so many coral blues to Verizon while leaving T-Mobile empty handed. Maybe the carrier is at fault but it sounds like a screw-up from Samsung.

    In any event, I guess the wait continues...

    Well, forget blue coral in-store availability, every single T-Mobile store in the DC area is completely sold out of all colors

    For sure it is the other way around - VZW ORDERED more than T-Mobile from Samsung. Samsung doesn't decide the quantities for the Carriers.

    T-Mobile in Lancaster CA was completely sold out of Note 7's at 4pm launch day. The Rep ordered one for me online. Only Black and Silver available online. Opted for Silver.

    I mean, unless you guys really want to get it in store, you could just order it online. The shipping date is still 8/23 - 9/06 and I just got updated with a shipping label (and the estimated date they gave me was 8/23 - 9/06). So with overnight shipping, it'll probably come on the 22nd, 23rd at the latest. You probably wouldn't have to wait until September.
