    Hope. I didn't mess things up for myself today. Being Mr. Impatient, my tracking showed that my phone arrived at my local UPS hub, which is only 10 minutes from my house and was scheduled for tomorrow deliver. . It arrived at 10:30 this morning and, rather than having it just sit there all day and night until it got delivered later tomorrow afternoon, I decided to switch delivery option to be picked up right there and thought I could beat the system a day early. I was hoping after I did that then I'd shortly receive an email telling me that it's all ready to be picked up later today. But now it just says that the change is pending. So hoping worst case scenario I can just get it there tomorrow at 3:30 when it opens. But if I had just wanted patiently it would have probably been delivered to my house around 1 pm.

    Your phone is one small box hand stacked on either a 53' or 28' trailer. There is currently no way for them to find your box and get it to you before tomorrow. The trailers probably won't start processing until around 3-4 tomorrow morning but you can pick it up at the center probably after 9 when the sort is down and the trucks roll

    2/29 Silver still processing. Any 2/28 or sooner orders processed? I am so close to canceling my Silver and Pre-ordering the black as it still has a 3/11 ship date and will probably get delivered to me 20 minutes after purchase

    My S7 edge is now at a FedEx sorting facility literally five miles from my condo.

    Grrr. I hope that means early delivery.

    I thought I saw a couple of 2/28 and 29 folks. Not a lot though. Gear S2 a must? Otherwise.. BB and people can have a phone right now. In your case, a week before the launch of the S8, whether you go to a BB or not .

    I played around with Package Disabler Pro today on my Note 5 and I am in love. This is definitely a must-have.

    Disable bloatware (PDP is a godsend!)
    Change application permissions and notifications
    Apply theme
    Ringtones
    Wallpapers
    Reconnect Gear S2

    Ah too much to list. All I know is I'll be gone for about 2 hours after the phone is delivered tomorrow.

    Ahem... SONY... *cough* I don't admit to anything...

    Closer you live to the sorting facility, the longer it takes!

    Ups says my Silver will be here tomorrow 3/9... I ordered on 2/26

    Note the app gave me a tracking number.... The link that I got in my order confirmation email still says shipping on 3/11.....
    Personally I believe Ups on this one.

    I will run down there in the morning and give them "the look" until they give me my device. Or I can request to hold it there on the FedEx app, which I already did.

    I completely understand you don't understand.




    1. I'm sure you'll get one if you're getting your phone if you're getting the phone tomorrow or the day after that.

    2. ILLUMINATI!

    3. I wouldn't hold my breath for the Samsung browser or WhitePages. If they do come around, it'll take awhile. Thank Verizon for that crap. Stupid Verizon.

    4. Spigen cases are dirt cheap on Amazon. They also work well. http://www.amazon.com/Spigen%C2%AE-R...cUvbUpU5043786
    Drosul didn't order until 3/5 he waited until then? Give me a break he shouldn't get a gift for waiting for so long.

    Thank you weirdohappy. So this particular ups location is a distribution center and is only open for 3 hours a day from 3:30 pm until 6:30 pm. Do you think I can just go back online and cancel the pick up and it will just go back to being delivered early tomorrow or would it be too late and possibly mess things up?

    Mine did the same thing. I'm guessing Verizon had two trailers they were loading and only one left the warehouse yesterday. I think mine got on the second one, though it left Louisville this afternoon around 3:30

    Preordered on 3-5. Black GS7E

    Have a UPS tracking # as of 1pm today, although nothing to report on actual tracking or estimated delivery date....Likely means that the phone was merely scanned and on the VZW truck to be sent to UPS for sorting in Memphis, but not actually in UPS' possession yet.

    Haven't really seen if anyone has a newer preorder than 3/5 actually getting sent out, so figured it was worth mentioning =)

    As for some side notes.....

    1. I'm going to be massively upset if I don't end up getting that smart watch from the promo.... I had 2 different VZW CSRs confirm that I would... and truth be told, that promo was the ONLY reason I'm upgrading my phone at all, since I'm planning on selling the watch on Ebay to help cover the additional cost of the phone. And as far as I'm concerned, if Samsung cheaps out on the watches, those two CSRs make Verizon liable for my watch.... or the price difference thereof. Also I wonder if Samsung's recent editing of the fine print, from 300,000 units to 35,000 watches.... just means that they are honoring watches for preorders before they changed the fine print, and that only 35,000 remained after editing.

    2. I find it entirely too suspicious that I was having tons of problems with my relatively ancient Galaxy Nexus the past month or so (which is what was prompting me to even look at finally using my upgrade).... including loss of data connection, frequent device crashes crashes, and general device sluggishness.... Since confirming my order for the GS7E, however, my GNEX has miraculously started working flawlessly again....

    3. Samsung Pay, WhitePages, and Samsung Stock browser hopefully we can get working versions going on the 11th

    4. I need a cheap case that provides actual drop protection... I've seen a few of the leather ones that are half wallets for $5-$15.... anyone confirm they do ok vs Drops?
    You waited until 3/5 to pre-order? Quit your complaining. I ordered way before you and I'm not complaining.

    From my understanding you can change the delivery option up until they start processing the preload, which is when they unload the trailer and start loading the brown trucks. So you should be fine as long as you do it before like 2:30 am

    WOA a cheap case for an 800 phone?! Now even I being the penny pincher I am knows that you need to spend more than 10-15 on a case- not to mention screen protection. It makes me sick to see people don't take the extra money and get a case and a screen protector for their phones- and you're worried about getting a galaxy gear?! Ack!

    If it scanned out of Louisville then it's on a plane, not a truck
