    oks10, I message PL FB (since he/she was one who got me return label and everything) and got msg saying That is correct, it all depends on the supply the shipping company has in stock. I haven't file BBB yet but if I don't see any progress within week, BBB way to go seems like it.

    @Aushoj you haven't received anything what so ever? I am a 3/13 submitter got VR instead of S2 (shipped back VR and they received today)

    Except their stock at this point should have never been a concern of ours had they followed the fulfillment method clearly stated in the terms and conditions. People who submitted early shouldn't be having to worry about what's left (or not left) in inventory. That's a problem that the late submitters should have had to deal with. (No offense to any of you late submitters that already got your watches. That's just a risk you deal with with a late submission in a first come first serve promotion, which this obviously ended up not being...)

    Oh, and I sent an email to the BBB branch handling my complaint against prizelogic. When you choose to contact me directly outside of the BBB complaint site and then lie to other parties about conversations that never happened, then you better expect that information to be shared...

    I'm not going to activate my watch to get a new phone number. Didn't want to hassle with the forwarding scenario that some had described with having 2 numbers.
    I activated my, but I am thinking about dropping it and using just Bluetooth. Even knowing I have the watch, found that I am seldom without my phone. The only times I have ever thought about using my watch was the couple of times I walked out of the house without my phone. And of course the only way that I have found that you can forward your phone to the watch is to be within Bluetooth range when you forward it, so if you don't have your phone with you, can't forward it. If someone knows if it can be forwarded remotely, please share. Of course you could make a call if needed from the watch itself, but is that worth $6-$7 a month (they do add taxes and fees to the $5 a month charge)? You are right, texting is the pits, I will read them on the watch, but unless the reply is a quick "okay", not going to bother on the watch.

    So seems like LOS. Was hoping to get range while out mowing the lawn and not have to download the songs to the watch.

    oks10, I got reply saying my Gear S2 should be included in next shipping batch (hoping there are watches for you in that too).
    I was just informed this next batch should include yours. Please continue to look out for the email that will contain a tracking number - I can trust person behind PL FB. Let's wait couple more days

    No sure if this will hold any weight with those still waiting. I just went to register it on Samsung website and it is saying my manufacture date is 5/1/16. That could add a little validity to the ran out theory but still doesn't change the fact as to how it was handled. I plan to check in daily to see how everyone makes out. Good luck to everyone still waiting.

    Good to know at least they told us (me) the truth that gift inventory is out-of-stock. I think this completes the story

    :Everyone:
    - Claimed their gifts
    - Gear S2 claimers*: Location Code and where was it bought checked
    *If Location wasn't "valid", default their gifts to Gear VR
    **While Gear VR claimers and "valid" Gear S2 claimers got their gifts shipped from original inventory.
    - Since a lot of people were 'interested' in this promotion, numbers of gift extended.
    - A lot of early Gear S2 claimers defaulted with Gear VR, which I guess was supplied from extended inventory while late* Gear S2 claimers got S2.
    *Not to mention that some/many early S2 submitter received S2. **No offense
    - Location wasn't 'valid' issue raised, BBB complaints, emails, social media triggered Fulfilment Company, PrizeLogic, Samsung, Verizon*
    *Verizon wanted their customer to me happy, some Executives offer to ship S2 while other blame Samsung
    - Samsung ordering PrizeLogic to fix this issue, PrizeLogic fixing "wrong gift received" while supplying from extended inventory.
    At end everyone is getting what they needed*
    *I hope :P

    And there are people like Auhsoj who haven't received anything

    It can be forwarded remotely. I tested extensively when I first got mine. Your S2 has to connect remotely via Samsung account then you can do the forwarding from the watch. Phone still has to be on for it to work tho.

    Glad you are enjoying yourself. I need to get the band connectors when I finally get mine. Where did you get them?
    I got mine from Ebay, but I think they were cheaper on Amazon by a few pennies. They are calling them connectors instead of adapters, probably so they won't get sued by Samsung?

    They are on Amazon, but they are not available for Prime, When I looked this morning, the delivery day shows July 27-Aug 12 unless you want to pay a $38 expedite fee. Not sure how long it takes from e-bay.

    Thanks for the info, the phone being on would not be a problem with me, I never turn it off, just an occasional restart to reset everything. I've had to do a restart on the watch as well, it was going a little crazy on me, the restart did the trick.

    Oh, I have no doubt they ran out of inventory but like I said in a previous post, that should have never effected those of us that submitted within the first week.

    Most definitely. This whole thing was a pure mess as to how it was and still is being handled.

    Thanks for checking the manufacture date, I was wondering about that.
    I’m still going with my theory that there are a woefully pitiful amount of watches set aside from the production line for promotional purposes. Because of choices made by Samsung, specifically re-opening the promotion after the initial quota was met. The demand way out paced the % set aside for promotion.

    There should have been some office dweller figuring this out. Maybe there was, that’s why that “delayed till summer” bit was put out. They could have increased the amount put aside for promotion. They just didn’t care enough.

    I see you Samsung! Ill never buy that Fridge now!

    Oh and +1 for figuring out my name, I guess you can keep the kings son, but no more straw into gold for you!

    Congratulations! Your submission has been approved and your gift has been processed and is currently in route!

    FedEx Tracking Number: FINDITATYOURDOOR.

    Changed to that 2 days after I got the watch, which was on 6/09/2016, 83 Days after I submitted (Yes I know don't glare at me, I know I submitted after you.) I never saw it in FDM. It was rather odd....

    I do wonder if it will ever change to something like:

    Enjoy your watch!
