    Tomorrow will be 8 weeks from my submission date. It took six weeks to get my VR. It will have taken 7 weeks and 6 days to get my S2.

    Yeah tomorrow is 8 weeks since submission and nothing in hand yet. Positive side is this will finally be over for you!

    Another day gone still waiting for my gear vr to show up. Submitted on 3/12. At least this week it says on the promo site that it's preparing for shipment. I'm pretty sure that's a change from what it previously said but dont really remember. Estimated ship date was 4/30. Nothing on fedex manager yet. And I live in Indiana only a few hours from where they ship them.

    Mine has said that since 4/1, never had a date yet. no fdm label created. PL told me it is up to the 3rd party to choose what goes out. In the next breath confirmed they are affiliated with Samsung after she tried to tell me to call Samsung and I called her on it.

    Yep it's over for me. Shortly after my last post I looked and it had been delivered. The good thing about being the boss is I was able to run home for it. Double bonus...it's beautiful out today and I rode the motorcycle to work. After a nice 40 minute round trip motorcycle ride I have my S2 charging on my desk! Best of luck to the rest of you and I hope you get yours soon.

    So for those of you receiving the watch - Are you activating it? Did it cost you anything besides the $5 a month to do so? I was one of the scammed and received a VR instead. I bought a watch off craigslist cause that is what I wanted! But when I asked about activating the watch when I was talking to a Verizon rep he told i would have to pay $35 for a line activation.
    I was never going to receive the watch like I registered for but I did agree to keep the VR and get a $200 samsung promo code. Now what to get...

    I was told by verizon and it is on the web site that activation is $40. What I was also curious about is what are the taxes? Do you have to pay all the regulatory fees and 911 and all that on top of the $5?

    I would think so since it is another line but could be wrong.

    Mine was going to be about $7.80 a month with taxes and vzw said they would waive activation fee but I haven't activated mine yet.... so the activation fee is just hearsay and YMMV depending on who you speak with but w/ all the issues with this promo I think people might be persuasive in getting it waived

    Yep, me neither. It feels odd to be excited for these guys when they get theirs....can't help but be happy for them. Then there's a huge disappointed feeling when I realize that I am still where I was weeks ago.....Pending with nothing in FDM. I'm thinking it's a new disease.....TS2IEFBD= Temporary S2 induced euphoria followed by devastation.

    So I called PL again.. spoke to a nice lady, but she could definitely hear the frustration in my voice. Still no estimated shipping information. She also said that I didn't get approved until 4/14, i said we'll I have an email that says I was approved on 3/19 . She then said that she doesn't see that. I then told her that when I called in early April I was told that my s2 was waiting to be shipped then, like most she didn't know anything about that.

    She said nothing about an audit but that they were backlogged. I asked why am I one of the initial submitters but still waiting, she then said it had nothing to do with submit date but date of approval.

    Why would someone who submitted all of the correct information on 3/10 take over a month to get approved?? Of course there was no answer to the question. I asked if I was going to get the shaft and sent a VR she said that she can't see the actual gift, that's out of her hands, but said that if I was getting substituted then I would have received an email saying so.

    Submitted 3/10
    Approval email 3/19
    PL Approval (BS) 4/14
    Status: Pending
    Ship date : WTFK

    Uggghhh

    Sort of the same conversation I had the other day. Lady was nice and even agreed with me about the approval date....sort of. She said she showed that I submitted on the 12th approved on the 13th. When she couldn't find answers she went to manager. They told her my approval date was actually the 6th. I received that email on the 7th. Their dates are all screwed up. I told her I give up. I also expressed how it is so hard to believe that they have no idea what the shipping company is doing.

    What was your location issue? Where did you order from?

    I think the location code indicates the type of purchase you made - online, in the store, et al
    I got the email that said "Your submission has been approved; however because the
    purchase receipt you uploaded denotes an in-store and/or online business
    purchase, you are only eligible to receive the Samsung Gear VR with 6-game
    bundle." Apparently a lot of people got the email by mistake - I bought the phone online on my personal account
    and the PL folks told me twice I was approved for a S2.

    just fyi-

    .......if I remember right, if it wasn't this thread it was a similar one - but this excuse has already been regurgitated once or twice, not often, but already thrown out there as a goose chase tactic..... I'm taking a wild guess but I think it was about 4 weeks ago when they first tried this excuse or pacification technique..... not tryin' to rain on any parade, so as always w/ PL, take what they say with a grain... .........!

    .....**** Just a side note - I know it is not correct thread but just for those w/ concern after reading many issues about glass breakage on s7edge...... s7edge hit concrete tonight in spigen case..... I was afraid to look at it(after I checked all my vitals).... I hit a wall at 15mph taking a corner on bicycle w/ galaxy S5 recording live and flipped over handle bars and bike went bouncing downhill w/ S7edge mounted on handle bars.... had to carry bike home (bicycle worth 4.5x's S7edge), limping, lol.... but S7edge survived

    Did you buy it directly from Verizon or through Comcast /xfinity or something like that?
