    I wonder, since Verizon is the # 1 wireless carrier, and Sprint/T-Mobil are not, Verizon gets more orders of the new models, and are delayed because of this. Just thinking out loud. Thoughts ?

    Well everything on Verizon seems to point towards the silver being back ordered. Just got off the phone with a rep who didn't know anything yet, but I cancelled my order and switched to a black one just to be safe.

    From the sound of it after reading a posts here and on a few other forums all the silver orders are being changed to the 31st and then they will change them back to the correct date based on when they were pre-ordered. So those of you who ordered day 1 are probably safe, someone like me who just ordered today probably wouldn't have been getting it until the 31st. Hopefully we find out everything soon though.

    A customer service rep just told me it automatically shifts your order to the bottom of the list if you have checked the "status" page more than 20 times in 24 hours.

    This was a CSR having fun with you, or being very mis-informed...there is no way this is true

    It's definitely only an online deal. If you order in store, You get $100 or Free VR headset.
    Thanks for the confirmation. I want to stick it out, but feel like they will 'run out' if I really have to wait until 3/31.

    Just talked to another CSR rep. Verizon is only allowed an X number of silver S7 edges from Samsung and they sold out of them right away and the silver S7 edge is definitely backordered. The rep said I won't get the silver s7 edge now until 03/31/2016, even thought I preordered it right away once preorders were started. That's such bull****. So I just preordered the black one instead so I can get that one next week instead.

    Seems like people don't like the gold, so glad I pre-ordered that one...

    I would worry less about them running out of S2's and more about paying verizon over 800 for your $299 edge. Who wants to pay Verizon 800 bucks over two years just to get a smart watch that by most accounts is less than impressive.
    If you buy it on monthly payment plan then it's a way better deal on Verizon. I'm on a business plan and my monthly access went from $40/mo to $15. So I get $25 credit for 24 months ($600). Meaning I pay $192 for my S7e and get a free Gear S2.

    This isn't true at all. Customers service reps would not have this information.

    Everyone stop getting info from cs reps, they are not informative at all.

    Like i said, I will get concrete info tomorrow.

    I ordered the silver s7 Edge on the 23rd of February and mine also says the 31st of March now , where it had said March 11th.. not really too concerned yet... I had this happen on another VZW pre order late last year for the Gold I Pad Pro 128gb , shipping date jumped 3 wks later than original date and then next day was back to same and then it ended up shipping two days earlier than the original expected ship date.

    I'm just telling you what she told me.

    I canceled my silver S7 edge preorder and got the black one instead so I can get it next week. I don't give a hoot about the color of the device. This also worked out in my favor because now I qualify for the free Gear S2 and VR promotion.

    I cant do purchase payments and keep my unlimited, so looks like I will be the first to test his out when I get my device...LOL
    AFAIK You can. You just can't get subsidized pricing. Device payments is still full price.

    Especially the online chat reps. Only go there if you're bored and need a laugh. I X those chat boxes away as fast as they pop up.

    Joe, will you be able to walk into a Verizon corporate store on the 11th and purchase the silver edge?

    I don't even have a ship date, just says "order processing check back later." I have to refrain from going on there now.
    Mine says the same thing. I ordered 1 gold and 1 silver

    Is the 11th set in stone for in store sales? Is there a chance they will sell them earlier?

    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?
