    The 3g version has a 300mh battery vs the 250mh on the bluetooth version. the body of the watch is thicker because of the battery and the esim in the watch

    Larger as in what? I get the thick part .. but larger screen, or?
    I haven't compared the individual specs but either the bezel and/or screen is larger(diameter) on the 3g version than the bluetooth version.... when I place both watches face to face the circumference on the 3g is slightly larger.... not something you would recognize if they were sitting side by side on a table but once you size them up w/ each other you can see the difference.

    It is slightly larger. When I ordered a glass screen protector for my s2 for when it arrives, they had two options; one for the Bluetooth and one for the 3g/4g cause the 3g/4g is larger so I guessed and got the larger one and thankfully got it right. But anyways a few posts back, people are posting they ordered on 3/11 and theirs has a label created! Wth I ordered 3/10 and nothing.

    Whoa. Finally some action - not on the status page (which continues to show the yawning "Approved - pending shipment") - but on the Fedex Delivery Manager. Label created. Alleged scheduled delivery of 4/6. Now, apparently that doesn't mean I'll get it on the 6th, but there's a frigging package headed this way someday!

    I received both of my Gear VRs today - got 2 S7 Edges with T-Mobile's BOGO on 03/11 in the store, and registered with Samsung for the giveaway that day. I also received and have applied the Netflix codes for both. Now paying one of them off and selling it as soon as I get the gift card for the balance.

    Got both my gear VR units a few days ago on Friday through Costco. Really quick. Took only 6 days from when I mailed the forms off!

    If you create the Fed Ex delivery Manager profile does the notification automatically populate once a label is created with your address?

    I created my oculus account. Did the whole setup (needed to download the app/etc) then it went to Oculus Home. Well we'll see what Oculus support says.
    You can open the Oculus app on your phone and go to your library. Under not installed, it should list the six games.:

    Yea, that's disappointing. But if you haven't had a label and you get a label, it's exciting. I've been skeptical of the S2 watch deliveries actually happening for many of us because of the 30k limit in the terms and conditions *and* initially the promo site didn't even list the watch *and* the terms really write away any obligation they have to send anything at all. It all seemed a little sketchy. But it looks like I was wrong, which is great. I hope every frigging person who submitted for the S2 through the 18th gets one... as they should based on the hefty marketing on the VZW site that seemed like a 1:1 guarantee (buy this -> get this).

    Still very odd to me that I submitted on 3/10 and still have the "Submission Approved, Preparing for Shipment, Shipping Date Estimate: Pending" message and some people who have submitted on 3/12 for instance have ship dates.

    I applied for two $100 Samsung gift codes, got one of them so far plus my two Netflix codes. Hoping to use the two Samsung GCs for a new laser printer + Samsung fast charge version of their wireless charging stand.

    So I stopped by verizon today to ask if I could trade in the gear s2 3g I should be getting sometime this week for the gear s2 classic 4g that's $399. She said they're discontinuing the regular s2 3g which is probably why that's what they're sending out to us. She said I should be able to send it in through customer care and pay the difference for the classic 4g

    "send it in through customer care "

    another episode of vzw reps either "not knowing what they speak of" or "telling you what you want to hear"....... the s2 is not coming from verizon and they certainly will not give someone $300- $350 credit for it...... take what they say with a grain of salt, remember the 611 and online vzw reps are still saying the promo is for the BT version.....

    They do however give you that little verizon card asking you to activate your gear for $5 a month though. I'm obviously not conveyed that they'll honor what she said but I will definitely try. In my opinion the classic version is more the style I'd wear, so I'll either trade up it they let me or pick up a Bluetooth classic and sell the 3g s2

    If you create the Fed Ex delivery Manager profile does the notification automatically populate once a label is created with your address?

    Yea. So you'd go to FedEx Delivery Manager - Customize Your Home Delivery and click "Sign Up Now" and register and verify your identity. Then you'll see a list of shipments Fedex has for you in their system. One point, though: the registrant's name and address must be the same as the addressee provided for the promo. That's only relevant if you submitted the promo under another name, though. I.e., I entered the promo info under my husband's name because his name is the vzw accountholder and there were some specs in the terms & conditions said that the name on the receipt and the submission must match. So I go to my husband's Fedex delivery manager to see the incoming shipment in this case.

    ETA: I may have misread the question. You *can* also set it up to get notifications by email...

    Yeah, that's what I got from my interaction too; I think I'm just going to do exchange it at Target / Best Buy for store credit and buy the classic.
