    So all this suspense was starting to annoy me.

    Instead I walked into Best Buy, bought an S7 Edge and walked out happy. No preorder necessary. Not sure how many BB's are selling them freely but the ones in the South Bay (SF Bay that is) got permission to start selling. Plus I got the Gear VR and a $200 gift certificate.

    Now I'm happier

    $200 gift certificate? WTH? How?! The BB pre-order bundle is the Gear VR, VR content, and a 64GB Samsung Evo micro sd card.

    I have to sleep in my recliner tomorrow when I get off work at 7 am. He usually delivers in the early evening but knowing my luck that jerk will show up early while I'm cocooned in my nice warm comfy bed after being on my feet for 12 hours.

    What in the world do you do that requires you to be on your feet for 12 hours?!

    Has anyone got a shipment via USPS?
    I have something coming via USPS tomorrow, but the USPS app and tracking doesn't say who is shipping it.
    Im in San Diego and it's coming from Huntington Beach, CA.
    Also I noticed on the My Verizon App, it shows a ship date of 3/8 now instead of the 1858 gibberish, but order is still in "processing"

    Wonder if this could be my phone?

    Wow 35,000 people or more got one day shipping?
    I will be extremely pissed if I did not even get a chance at an S2. I will be picking it up at UPS this morning at 8:30. If they are gone Verizon will be hearing from me, and the phone will go back. Hopefully not, but maybe waiting to see how the Note 6 pans out wouldn't be such a bad thing?

    Martin got his phone shipped USPS but it clearly showed on his Verizon app it was shipped via USPS along with a tracking #. I would expect Verizon to fire off a tracking # to you tomorrow.

    Oh, yeah, I got the 64gig card also. Not going to use that, already have a much faster card. Don't know the story on the gift card, the sales guy just said "click accept, you want that." And then I had it. Can use it online or in store.

    Holy crap. Now if BB had advertised a $200 gift card, I would've just gone with them and put up with the risk of BB screwing up my pre-order like they have in the past. $200 is well worth the risk dammit!

    I'm heading to bed now. I have to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for my chrome S7E arriving tomorrow!

    Yea, Im thinking systems are not completely in sync. So Verizon doesnt show a tracking# yet, but USPS obviously does.

    When you register for the myUSPS service, they let you know when a package is on the way for you. Kinda like that service UPS has. So I can clearly see something coming tomorrow on the USPS site, but it doesnt say who it's coming from like it normally does. Like when I get stuff from Amazon it says clearly that "Amazon LLC" is sending the package.

    Anyway.. fingers crossed that it's the phone... if not, no big deal.

    Like I said earlier in the thread, every time Ive done the pre-order thing, Ive had the phone by the "delivery" by date.. Would nice to get it a little early though

    Received my Black Onyx S7 Edge Tuesday afternoon around 4:30 from UPS; originally ordered online on 2/25. I immediately went to the Samsung Web-site and chose the S2. I didn't get any indication that it was sold out. I have a confirmation email.

    So far the phone seemss great. Still have to get used to the edges---coming from HTC One M8. Battery life seems excellent.

    Possible glitches with sound notifications, but I'm working on it. So far I'm liking it. Not as much Verizon crapware as was on my HTC.

    Wow- well sometimes USPS isn't that good at reporting things- when I looked at times for updates they were usually an hour or so if not more behind when the site finally did update. I was going to utilize the no signature option- but then I was like no, I will wait

    Verizon really, really needs to better train their CSR and upgrade their computer systems. As it is, CSR's give conflicting stories based on which computer screen they happen to be viewing at the time they're speaking to you. With my new order (silver Edge) just placed yesterday, the My Verizon app shows a ship date of 3-8 while the web version shows a ship date of 3-31.

    On a positive note, my cc just got charged the $72 for the tax which, IIRC from other posts, is usually an indication that shipping has occurred or will occur in the next 24 hours. Can someone confirm of deny this for me?

    Yes it will be shipping soon.
