    I ended up going to the depot to collect last time. My choice though, couldn't wait
    I gave them my phone number to call me when they were within an hour or so from my delivery, but no call, I checked the UK mail tracking website around lunch time and the status was attempted delivery, so after numerous phone calls to their depot (which was around 70 miles away) I got the driver to meet me at my work!

    mgbosshogg I also mentioned that a friend had got a £30 discount when pre ordering when I emailed Samsung shop, so they asked for my friends order number to see if he was a member of Samsung staff eligible for staff discount, I said we're friends but not that close lol

    pretty rubbish that isn't it? If you've made an order it should be visible on your account. They are just creating more work for themselves with customer enquiries! I seem to remember similar to this happening last time. Just been on chat and they were no help whatsovever. Told me to ring or email.

    Yeah, the online chat will not help at all with Samsung Shop orders!
    I will say I ordered a case from Samsung shop just after ordering the phone and that was listed on my orders almost straight away, but not the phone, very strange.

    My order doesn't show up on my Samsung account either. Seem to remember my note 8 was the same. So only record ATM is the email from them.

    Anyone upgrading an an EE max plan that allows yearly upgrades? If so what price have you been quoted? Is the same as the tariffs for everyone else? I have my note 8 on a yearly upgrade with EE but this isn't due till the end of October so have to wait. Not completely sure whether to upgrade but I'm sure the itch will be enough that I will when the time comes!

    I have a S9+ dual SIM hybrid. The extra SIM space can also take the memory card so either you have 1 SIM card and 1 memory card or 2 SIM cards and no memory card. I had a good play with the Note 9 on Saturday and the S pen is reason enough to get this phone. Plus it feels lighter than the Note 8.

    Yeah. Is yours direct from Samsung? Did VoLTE and Vowifi work oot the box? What provider?

    Heard a good few people say the 9 feels better in the hand than the 8, which is strange as its actual heavier.
    Thanks, boss.

    I have a few lines with EE Inc my sim only one for my note.
    Changing this to Note 9 on the annual upgrade plan with 60gb is £78 a month. Wonder if you get quoted the same.

    Interesting thanks. I'm not due to upgrade till October so can't get a quote yet but currently I pay £72.99 for my note 8 with 40gb so if I get offered the same then it would be a fiver more per month.

    Will have to decide when the time comes if that's actually worth it. It's not much more but I already think £72.99 is a ridiculous amount to pay every month so I'm not sure if I want to pay even more!

    Thanks for that mate. Always good to see what others get offered.
    It's why I would never go with a carrier. My note8 ( and my note 9 ) will cost £32 + SIM ( £17 for 30GB - I need the data ) with the option of changing phone or SIM at anytime.

    I still haven't heard of any pre order bonus for us UK guys, that's pretty annoying, those AKG wireless headphones look pretty good too!
    Weird how Samsung can give pre order bonuses in some areas and not others, we still pay the same!

    We do seem to get a raw deal. The new Galaxy Watch offers a free wireless charger duo worth £89 if you order direct from Samsung or Carphone Warehouse, but the only deal I've seen on the Note 9 is a free wireless charger if you pre-order through CW.

    Yeah I saw the CPW deal, they have actually pushed the boat out this time around on trade ins also but even a wireless charger is better than nothing eh.

    What case you getting to start?
    Screen protector?

    I'm travelling a bit in September / October so think I will start with a slightly more protective Spigen with a kick stand. Normally go minimal.

    It all comes down to how good the sim deal is. I remember when I got my note 8 I was considering buying direct from Samsung on the upgrade plan and I think it was something like £36 per month. Then the best deal at the time I could see for what I wanted on EE was 30 per month. So whilst 66 is still less than 72, it wasn't quite such a big difference so I stuck on EE. Of course if you can get a sim only deal for 15 per month then it makes a huge difference! I'm kind of stuck now unless I keep my note 8 then move out of contract next year. If I do the annual upgrade on EE then the contract length resets

    Was going to get the Samsung rugged case but no discounts anywhere, emailed Samsung to see if there will be any vouchers with the phone but they basically said no.

    Took the screen protector off my Note 8 after a couple of weeks and not had one since so it will be the same for the Note 9, just a case.

    I always buy from my local Samsung Experience Store as they always have stock in and they have the Btu csc code on them.

    Pre Ordering in the UK holds no real incentive for me right now. I'm certainly not letting Samsung have my Samsung Galaxy s8 phone which is in pristine condition for £200.

    Having used the Note 9 and cash waiting I'll be buying one when the times right.
