    Wonderful... Guess I'll be in there along with everyone else that just walks in of the street... /sigh. Well at least I get a free charger.

    I pre-ordered very early on Mar 27 for home delivery and I haven't seen anything yet either. Called BB and all they could tell me was that delivery guaranteed by April 17th

    Here is a quick first look. Nice that there are no Sprint logos anywhere. Also note that the wireless charger is shipping later. Curious if everyone with in store pickup gets them Friday.

    That's why I didn't preorder a S6, because I got burned once (my order didn't get shipped until after the phone was available at the local store). This time, I'm planning to pick one up live at the ATT store on Fri.

    No. Release day is Friday the 10th. Pre orders should get filled on or before release date not a week later.

    I understand that...but it seems to me that BB is not committing to even ship the phone until the 10th and that with standard shipping it will be there in 5 business days. Obviously hoping for a lot sooner. If it's not at least shipped on friday I will see if I can go to the store to get one.

    Oh you're having them delivery it to your house not the store? Ah ok I guess that might be different. I plan on picking mine up at the store on Thursday, Friday or Sat. The sooner the better

    Yeah, maybe that was a mistake on my part but live and learn. Obviously though many others on his thread have gotten them already but maybe the combination of BB and AT&T is slower for some reason. It's not like I ordered an uncommon version (regular S6 Black 64GB).

    Correct me if I am wrong but the whole purpose of the pre-order was to guarantee a device on release date.

    Maybe just me, but I always thought of it as "guarantee a device among the first batch(es) that arrives", not specifically a guarantee of launch day. Granted, that is more from the days when there was more demand than supply, which may or may not be the case here with the S6, as it sounds like there will be plenty of stock on day one. Both times I've pre-ordered through Best Buy, I was specifically told by them that I wasn't guaranteed a device on "launch day".

    My local bb didn't even give me a release date. They just said "we don't have a release date, but we'll email you once we have a firm date". Fortunately, I already knew the date. Which means none of the BB employees lurk sites such as AC. They know nothing about technology.

    I can't wait until they go out of business. They haven't anything to remedy the in-store experience. All of the BB stores in my area get bad reviews on yelp for customer service and my visit to preorder proved it. Having the loss prevention person greet you at the isn't good customer service - its a scare tactic.

    Did you read that anywhere? Pre-order just means order before it's released. You can pre-order the 128gb or the gold but that just means that.....it was ordered before it was released.

    If you don't get it, just go to your carrier store (JCP I believe you are also on AT&T) and pick one up there. We are not "locked" into purchasing from Best Buy. Seriously, if I get there and it looks like it's going to be a long drawn out process with no end in site, I will go across the street (literally) to the AT&T store and pick my 64GB Black Edge up there

    Yes if you ship to home. Pickup in store is different story at least last time I was there.

    I spoke to AT&T on the phone before I preordered from best buy and they told me to just pick up the phone at BB but do not activate it there: call AT&T directly to get that done, especially if you are doing something remotely complicated like transferring upgrades or anything like that.

    Thing is, for me anyway, the buying experience at Best Buy has always proven better than AT&T. Sad as that is...

    Since I am selling phones to,defray the costs of the device, I charged and powered up my RIM Torches and was amazed at how small the screens were compared to my GS4. I can't imagine how they would look against the GS6.

    New to the forum, recently lurking. Mainly because I pre-ordered a GS6 from BB.

    I spoke to my local BB, in Olympia WA. He said that they had "some" in, and expect to get more before Friday. I asked if I could get mine earlier than Friday. He said no. But that my pre-order would be available on Friday at open. FWIW. So, Friday for me.
