    Interestingly, if I go to the Verizon app on my phone, it lists the ship date as the comical 11-17-1858. If I follow the "check order status" link in my email, it gives me 3/11 for my black S7 and 3/31 for my husband's silver S7 edge. If I go to Verizon's site on my laptop and check order status, it says they're still processing and no further information is available.

    killing me.

    If you go the subsidized 2 year contract route your line fee goes from 20/month to 40/month. So yea, you basically pay the full price of the phone ($780).
    The 24 month plan cost $13 more over the two years for yhe s7 edge. Payment plan is better IMO.

    I just checked too, on the app. It is kinda funny, but I'm still kind of fuming.

    On my phone the My Verizon app says my "shipment date" is 11/17/1858!!!

    Huh???

    You'd think it would have been here by now 150 years later.

    But seriously, does anyone (hint, hint, Joe the Insider) know what this means?
    Samsung's "One More Thing..."

    ...


    "Time travel capabilities!"

    Apple fans: "omg can't Samsung come up with ideas of their own? Time travel? That's so last year"

    I've been going back and forth on pre-ordering and just going to a store on 3/11- especially because I have a P.O. Box and probably won't be able to get it until 3/14 even if it comes on 3/11. Is the S2 offer also valid with an in store purchase? Or are only Gear VRs going to be promoted in store? I'd rather just buy in store, but if G2 is exclusively available via online pre-order, then I'll just have to deal with it.

    Thanks!

    SHIPMENT DATE
    11/17/1858
    Wow it looks like they are using OpenVMS as their OS.
    That date is zero time in OpenVMS (the binary date field has zeros in it)!.
    Been using this OS everyday for 38 years so this jumped right out at me - yeah I'm old.

    Joe, please let us know what the heck is going on here. For those of us who pre-ordered the first or second day of pre-orders will we actually have to wait three more weeks past general availability to get our silver Edge's???

    If so, that's just appalling.

    And to add insult to injury? Sprint and ATT are shipping early. Talk about a smack in the face!

    Very disappointing.

    Also notable is that the cutoff for ordering the VR/gear 2 is the 31st and you seem to need your phone on-hand to do this. Shipping it to us on the 31st is not going to cut it.

    I caved and called Verizon. Oh mylanta. So according to the rep I spoke to, these devices from pre-orders are actually being shipped from Samsung, not Verizon. And the reason shipment dates are changing from 3/11 to 3/31 is because Samsung doesn't have the supply. So, riddle me this- what is the point of a pre-order? All other big carriers are shipping early, yet Verizon isn't and now I have to possibly wait an extra 20 days? She kept trying to tell me that all these other carriers shipping early, are shipping out potentially buggy devices and I was better off to wait for the later batch of phones.

    Verizon. Sucks.

    If you want the silver, just walk into a Verizon corporate store on the 11th and pick one up.

    I guess I will leave my order alone and if it hasn't shipped by the 11th, I will go to my local corporate store and pick up one. First time I have pre-ordered a device. Never again. And Verizon stinks.

    I have preordered in the past and never had an issue, that's why I'm perplexed. Okay, ticked. I'll be making my first device payment on a phone I don't even have by the time it gets here!

    Looks like they changed their rules on picking up pre-ordered items in store? App shows the same date as everyone else, one spot online shows a ship date of 3/31/2016 and one spot shows this:

    This is a pain in the rear. I preordered from both Best Buy and Verizon with the hopes of getting the Verizon one first. According to Verizon, my ship date was 11/17/1858. Where is my phone then? Smh.

    I also have an AT&T account. I may just order one from them and if I get that first, I will get rid of Verizon. I can't stand how Verizon is always last in everything, except their network.

    I just spent another hour on the phone and from what I was told this was a huge error on there part and you have to call them and complain and then once you do they file a ticket to push you back forward to the line again with the shipping department so just a mess so if you feel like spending a hour on the phone they can fix it
