    Official release day is Friday 9-15-2017. Yet a good bit of you still have no device even though you pre-ordered early on. I've never pre-ordered. Looking forward to Friday.

    Some of you have your devices but there was stress and mayhem. Your phones saw pretty much all of the U.S. You didn't receive current tracking.

    Considering this experience, will you ever pre order again, whether direct, through a carrier, or BB?

    I had good luck pre-ordering my S7E from Samsung. I pre-ordered the N8 from BB in the store. That will never happen again. I did cancel the order and re-ordered it directly from Verizon and got it the next day. So - I would pre-order from my carrier (Verizon) but never from BB whether online or in the store. I might pre-order from Samsung. At this point, for what the N8 cost, it will be a couple of years before I consider acquiring a new phone anyway.

    No complaints here, placed my order on Aug 30th and received my phone on 9/12. I ordered through Samsung (Verizon phone).

    When i buy a new phone (hopefully in 3 + years) i will most likely pre-order, i always am able to sell the free gifts and make a little cash back.

    I got mines early through AT&T. But I regret it now because the promotions came after Sept 8th and missed out on a good deal. I'm also returning the phone for a defect and it's a process since I can't just go to the store and get a replacement yet. I'll most definitely not pre order next time, save me from some stress lol

    I had a perfect preorder experience through VZW. Too perfect in fact as I was not expecting to receive it so quickly and had to wait for my case to arrive before I switched over.

    Yes I'll preorder again. Well when it comes to a note phone lol. Verizon shocked me this year by shipping early lol. I ordered the August 24th at 1:15am and got note8 on Sept 5th.

    Preordered mine via Verizon and got it 9/5, which is 10 days ahead of the stores. Why would that be stressful?

    I did the pre order for the s8, s8+ and Note 8 and there were all great experiences. I will most likely pre-order through Sprint again.

    Pre-ordered from Best Buy the night it was available. Received it on the 5th and activated that afternoon. Submitted my trade in info through Verizon for my Note5 and submitted info for my Gear360. My trade in I shipped off today, my Gear360 arrived yesterday. So it took me a week from submitting all my info to get my reward and ship out my trade. I've never had a pre-order go as smooth and as quickly as this one. Yeah, I'm pretty satisfied and would certainly do it again.

    The phone is not officially released for 2 more days and yet I've been in Note 8 bliss for an entire week now. I will certainly pre-order in the future. Every time I've pre-ordered, it's been a treat and a great experience. I feel for those who've had bad luck, and i'm sure it'll happen to me eventually. As for now, I am a firm believer in pre ordering. There's nothing like getting home and having my phone on my table for me to set up instead of going into a crowded store with a long wait (appointment or not) and have THEM unbox my phone and do everything for the first time to activate it. It feels like a used phone at that point.

    Ordered mine from Verizon on the 6th and got it the next day. No problems at all.

    Yep, I will continue to pre order, the freebies themselves make it worth it. I ordered through Sprint and got it early. Some of the freebies included a 32" LED Samsung TV, Gear VR, 256 SD card, and with this one I chose the SD card and wireless charger. Well worth it to me. That's a total of $950 in freebies in the past 2 years. Win/win!

    I'll probably preorder again all depending on the phones out etc. I love my Note 8 and my preorder experience was only slightly hectic. I got mine last Thursday so I'm thrilled.

    My pre-order via AT&T was flawless.
    Preordered from ATT on the night of the 23rd, contacted ATT twice over the next few days and they stated the order was OK. Then after many others started shipping I contacted them again and they said I needed to cancel and reorder. I reordered on the 8th and it shipped that same day. Got it on the 11th. Even though I had a problem I will preorder again in the future.

    I see no reason not to preorder again. It took all of 5 minutes to do on the Verizon site the day after it was announced. I had the note 8 in my hands a full 10 days before the release date, and yesterday I received my 360 camera.

    It was a great experience, so much so that I almost feel bad for those who didn't preorder!

    I pre-ordered on August 24th. At the time I placed the order the shipping date was scheduled for September 5th Both of them arrived on the 6th. The best part of it all though is the rarely mentioned BOGO promo AT&T had for the Note8, good for new Directv customers or current ones. Pre-ordering is great.
