    I properly entered my information (IMEI and MAC) on my S7 Edge and went to the Samsung Promotions page in order to get my promotional gift of the Gear VR. However, on their "check your status" page, I still am not getting a positive confirmation.

    This is the exact phrase I'm getting...not too encouraging!
    "
    Your submission is currently under review."

    May we start a thread so we can all see who has been successful in getting a "you're registered and a Gear VR is coming to you in 2 weeks" type of reply?

    Thanks.

    Got my order info from Sprint. They are shipping them directly, so you don't have to go through the Samsung Promo site.

    It means they are reviewing your submission, don't think they will process it immediately. Probably will take a week or two. It shows the same for me and probably for everyone else.

    @AirMech74: oh wow, my my, you win the prize for the very first one that I heard of to have received the free Gear VR!!

    Congrats to you. Btw, i wanted to be able to access and view the New York Times newpaper's VR videos (they have many!) and they specifically say that their videos are "Google Cardboard compatible", so ANY "viewers" that are compatible with Google Cardboard would be able to view their videos.

    well, despite writing them to ask, they never wrote back! may i ask if you'd mind checking out the New York Times' VR videos to see if you can use your Gear VR to view them please?

    Thanks so much in advance.

    i'm excited to see it mature into something neat. i had a Gear VR when i had my note 5 (i sold it with the phone since i preordered the s7 edge and hope i get one in the promo) and it's neat for a bit, nothing mind blowing, but i don't think the gear vr has the processing power to really do a ton with it, not like the HTC headset or the oculus one, but those need powerful graphics cards and computers to run them so it's not really in the same league.

    but it's a fun experience and i'm excited to see where it can go. honestly i'm way more interested in AR and something like the hololens, because those demos really blew me away compared to all of the VR demos combined.

    i used the packing list/receipt that came in the box. it's what i used for my note 5 and that seemed to do the trick.

    submitted mine just now and it's now pending approval

    Mine didn't come with a receipt in the box. So I submitted a screenshot of my order. Which is not exactly what they were looking for. The day after I submitted that which I was already doubtful of tmobile sent me via email an actual receipt which is probably what they wanted me to upload. I tried to call the Samsung promotion Customer Support number today and through the automated system was advised that if the file uploaded was unacceptable that they would send you a link to reupload a copy of the actual receipt.

    Mine got rejected. It said "Your location code is invalid" and asked me to try again. Huh???

    I have a S7 Edge ordered directly with Verizon Wireless.

    What location code do you guys have on your packing slip? Mine shows W211501.

    weird, when i submitted my AT&T claim it didn't ask for any location code, just the IMEI, the MAC ID and the receipt.

    It only asked for IMEI and WIFI MAC address for me too, but that's the email I got this morning (submitted the request yesterday). The website itself never asked for a Location Code, but that's the reason that was given for the rejection.

    VERIZON FOLKS: Let me know what you other Verizon folks have on your packing slip for Location Code so I can ask Verizon why mine is different (or, if it's the same, why I got rejected)

    Thanks!
