    I pre-ordered a S6 Edge from Best Buy on March 27th and I have been reading about people receiving theirs from certain carriers already. Has anyone heard if Best Buy will release their pre-ordered phones before the Friday release date? This wait is killing me!

    May not happen. I think they get their inventory from other channels, may be from Samsung, maybe from the carriers or their distribution centers. But most of all Samsung is likely going to hold firm on the 4-10 date, carriers can bend the rules since they are the carriers. Retailers can't afford to tick off any OEM. But hey it could happen and I hope it does happen for those waiting.

    I preordered from Best Buy online, not in the store, on the 27th. Just received shipping confirmation and tracking number this afternoon for the Sprint 64GB Edge. Hoping to have it tomorrow!

    I have mine preordered from the store as well. I hate this waiting game. I would have just gone and used att online preorder but i wanted the free charger that best buy was offering with the preorder. They said the charger is limited supply so i will be really upset if i miss out on the charger and had to wait these extra days.

    UPS already has the Edge out for delivery this morning. It does look like the charger is in limited supply as the phone shipped but the charger has not.

    Any indication that the free charging pad will be available to pickup with the phone?

    I just called my local Best Buy & they received a huge shipment of S6 phones a week ago & since have been sorting pre orders. The guy didn't know if the Edge would be available through which if true, pisses me off. Why pre order a phone that isn't available? I could have gone through AT&T and already had my Edge if this is indeed true. He did say I will get a call from them starting Thursday afternoon on when to come pick it up or if it's not there.

    Just got my confirmation email for the phone, nothing about the charger yet. But from what I've been seeing around the forums here and other places it really depends on the store. Corporate has no control of when these emails go out, they will just come when the sales person gets around to sending it out after checking inventory.

    But as many have also reported, and I've been told too, they will be overstocked at nearly every store to deal with pre-orders and walk-ins. It's just the wireless chargers that are in short supply right now.

    I just checked the email again and weirdly its for the charger and not for the phone. Good thing I looked at it. I just assumed it would be all together. Looks like the phone will be a separate email.

    This wait is killing me. No email for the charger or the phone yet. I pre-ordered mine Mar 30th. The next time i pre-order it will be directly from the service providers. I got my HTC one M7, the phone i am upgrading from, earlier when i pre ordered directly from AT&T.

    Got my email just for the phone, then an hour later the local store called wanting to know when I was coming in to pick it up. Kinda weird but giving them the benefit of the doubt, maybe wanted to get a read on staffing or the chargers. Never thought to ask about it though. Not worth reading too much into it but when I ordered, they were all talking about setting up special lines, opening super early on Fri for activations, etc, and they aren't doing any of that. Normal store hours - not open until 10am. I may swing by tonight on my way home and see what's going on.

    I pre-ordered white 64 gig edge on March 30th. Still no email yet. I called the store earlier and the girl said that everyone would be getting emails this afternoon that the phone would be ready to pick up tomorrow, so I'm gonna call back again if I don't get an email soon.

    Anyone ever Edge up at Best Buy? At the Verizon store you turn in your phone when you get the new one. BB just gives you a mailer. If it turns out you don't like the new phone, can you go back to using old one? If you turn it in at the Verizon store obviously that doesn't work but I'll still have my old phone until I send it in......If it turns out that there are alot of early build issues and battery probs, I'd rather keep my M8 and revisit it after a month.

    When I preordered they told me I had 14 days from the moment you get the phone to mail the old phone back. I had a mess with my lines, where my phone was connected to my mom's line. She ended up upgrading to an iPhone the same day I preordered the G6 (April 1st) in order to sort out the mess, so the clock has been ticking for me to send it back. I'm sure when you actually edge up when you pick up your phone that you'll have 14 days from then.

    I upgraded at Best Buy on the edge plan too. The deal is that the time to send your current phone back will begin once you activate the new phone. Its actually a lot nicer going through Best Buy then Verizon because you can go home and do the transfer yourself and not have to deal with Verizon screwing up the content transfer.
