    I hope you didn't cancel your silver.

    Cancelled my order on AT&T. Tired of them not knowing anything and no idea when it will ship even though it says 3/7. I proceeded to Best Buy and preordered and will get it on Monday morning. They have them in stock and will be releasing them on Monday morning. I have my appointment setup and will even be getting the 64GB SD card as an added bonus. Can't wait!!!! Kudo's to Best Buy for releasing early!!!!!

    Thank you for this heads-up! I stopped in at Best Buy today and spoke to a Samsung rep. He confirmed it is on the hush hush but I would be receiving my s7 edge preorder on Monday! I'm ecstatic!
    I'm assuming for in store pick ups only?

    Bad move....you most likely will not get your phone Monday. There are many ahead of you and I am willing to bet yours will be ordered and will take some time to get here since it's so late after the pre-orders have started. Best Buy will not tell you that. Trust me, they have done it many times to me.

    Ok so I was just in my Best Buy and spoke with a Samsung rep. I was curious about the process as a whole since I've never preordered a Samsung device from Best Buy.

    He said and I quote "yeah, so you'll get an email when your order is ready for pickup. You'll come in and get your device, VR and sd card and they'll activate the device. Release is on the 11th but we've been told customers can start picking up as soon as the order is fulfilled. So you'll probably get it before then if you were one of the early preorders".

    This goes in line with what the previous posters have been saying about availability on Monday. I preordered in store on the 24th so I'll see what happens early next week. In any event as long as I get it no later than 11th I'm good.

    Same here, i never pre-order phone via BB before. You mentioned, "They will activate the device". What about those that ordered for delivery? Is that mean we're bring the phone in for them to activate? That doesn't make any sense. I normally just call AT&T to get it activate. Or just move my SIM to my device.

    Didn't ask about delivery preorders. And yeah I doubt the activation part applies to those. He was just responding to my question about my in store preorder pickup.

    Went in to my local Best Buy. No silver left, said they should have some available for walk ins, but they can only allot so many for pre-orders. Almost just went with black but then I thought, this is crazy. I can wait 4 extra days.

    Ok, since you work in BB do you know why it says "Authorization Failed" in the payment method when I check my order? Thats why I had to call bb cc and they reassure me that I have nothing to worry about.

    Hey bmanzella527 do you by chance know if pre orders shipping to home are supposed to arrive at door on 11th or they start shipping on the 11th? The last few years its been a big debate that ended with shipments starting on the 11th/release date (even when some stores allowed pickups prior to release date). However this year some of the language on the website as well as comments raises hope this might have changed and Best Buy aligned with the rest of the world as to when a pre order shipment should arrive (on the actual release date). Any insight? Thanks in advance!

    LOL. Now I'm certain you work for Best Buy. Ease up and don't get offended just because people don't automatically believe someone on a message board giving inside information contrary to what they've heard everywhere else.

    Please don't take your toys and go home. We promise we'll believe everything you say from now on oh supreme Geek Squad leader.

    They called and said pick ups could be scheduled as early as tomorrow afternoon. Mine is at 2pm. Not sure if others were called before me. I preordered last Saturday.

    No charge or change in status yet for my Verizon best Buy online order. I'm guessing it will charge and ship in the next couple days or so and deliver on the 11th.
