    Annnndddd my shipment date changed to 3/31 now. Silver s7e. Not sure what to do now. From reading posts on here, it sounds like the CSRs aren't much help, so I don't want to call in.

    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?
    It means you'll have to find a Flux capacitor and go back in time...

    Lol


    It means the system is definitely glitchy.

    I was actually just told that any orders from today on will ship by 3/31, But any orders placed before 3/1, Will arrive on or before 3/11. When Verizon changed the date on the site, It also changed everybody's delivery date on their orders.

    I will confirm all this tomorrow either way.

    Edge with upgrade is 299 + Tax - so in CA it's 400 out the door. In my book that's 1/2 of 800 bucks, thus my Q - who wants to pay 800 for a phone you can get for 4 if you have an upgrade.

    What? The S7 Edge costs $13 more on Verizon than it does on T-Mobile ($792 vs. $779) so I'm not sure what you mean by "$299 edge." And I'll take the Gear S2 over the VR every time - even if you don't want the S2, you can probably sell it for more money than the VR, especially since everybody and their mother is going to be trying to sell the free VR.

    So I just got off the phone with a CSR who now said my ship date is 3-31. Yet I placed my pre-order the first day it went active. What the hell is going on here?

    Yep - they are trying to unload the S2's - I can imagine with the dismal sell through they have truck loads to unload.
    Just got off the phone with Verizon. She told me that the silver s7 edge is extremely back ordered. She checked with her supervisor and she said the March 31st is not a glitch and that it could get pushed out even more. Also the Samsung promo for the watch will not be honored in the store is we cancel our preorders. And that the watch Samsung is sending us is the Bluetooth one not the 3G.

    I ordered mine to be shipped to my house. Wonder if I cancelled that order and had a phone shipped to store if I would get it sooner? And I wonder if any Corp stores will even have silver on the 11th, in store?

    With an "upgrade" you're still paying for the full price of the phone (~$800), it's just that the remainder of the balance less the $299 is subsidized in your 2-year contract. Whether you use an upgrade (and sign a 2-year contract), pay for the phone outright, or do a device payment plan you're paying the full price of the phone. Some people just prefer to pay for the phone outright so they're not stuck in a contract and to have a lower monthly bill.

    Do not do this. You will only delay your order in line further.

    I just spent 1 hour on the phone with a Verizon rep to tell he he has no clue why the dates was changed and they did some kinda order ticket to the warehouse to find out what's going on but he said no matter what do not cancel and re order as that would put me in the back of the line , and I told him if that happens they will here from me every day going forward I ordered the 23rd at 8 am when pre orders opened up so who knows what's really going on they have no clue .....

    Even if it takes 150 years for us to get our S7s, we'll still have them before Verizon users get their hands on the Blackberry Priv.

    I think the only real benefit from preordering is to get the free watch. I guarantee there will be very minimal problems buying one in-store on launch day.

    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).

    Samsung - Galaxy S7 edge 32GB - Silver Titanium (Verizon Wireless) is listed on the best buy site as Sold out online now. My preorder with best buy for it is still listed as processing with a 3/11 expected release date.

    This was a CSR having fun with you, or being very mis-informed...there is no way this is true
    I was making what I thought was a facetious joke but I think we get such strange responses from the companies that it was apparently almost believable.

    How do you figure? I paid 400 and my monthly increased by zero dollars and zero cents.

    Actually it does not -- not for me in any case. I have unlimited data plans and an old family share plan -- my line fee was and still is 9 bucks 99 cents per month. It's good for Samsung to see so many folks who are willing to pay 800 bucks ... for me not so much.

    If you ordered early last month then I'm pretty sure you will receive it by the 11th. The 31st will be orders placed today and later.

    In which case, the subsidy is permanently built in to your plan so yeah, for you it'll always make more sense to get it on contract. On most of the new plans, you get a discount only if you don't do a contract. Comes out to be about the same amount though

    Well, I kept my Silver pre-order and ordered another black one tonight in case the silver doesn't ship, I sold my Note 4 and am rocking an old S3, it's painful. Let's hope we get some better info tomorrow on this, always something with Verizon.

    I don't know what carrier you're on and I don't know what plans they offer, but the cost of the phone is worked into your monthly bill for the duration of your contract whether you know it or not. They are not giving you an $800 phone for $299 plus tax even though that's what most people think.

    On Verizon, for example, if you decide to go the the subsidized 2-year contract route, your monthly bill is more expensive than if you are out of contract (when you're contract runs out and you don't use an "upgrade").
