    This article is mostly about South Korea with the exception of the 3rd paragraph which looks like was added in according to the footnote. Pre-orders in South Korea only started on April 7 and I also saw on Korean TV the same details - they will get it by the 18th.
    That is pretty quick! Then again that is the HQ of the company. Probably why they get 6gb models of phones such as LG and Samsungs. I wonder if people over there get obsessed with pro orders like us in North America and England lol.

    Some people wonder if somehow if an insider sabotaged the Note 7 somehow. Could Kim Jong Un have people in South Korea trying to mess with Samsung?

    I have a question about pre ordering from Samsung.com. I am on Verizon and in order to get the pre order bonus from them I would be forced to go onto their unlimited data, trade in my s6e+ which i own, and lose my employer discount all to get the new Gear VR and Goodies. (plus my bill would go up 47 dollars a month). If i got it with the 30 dollar a mo payment option with Samsung, could i then just add the phone to my Verizon bill and not have to have my bill go up?
    I'd say you didn't look into it all that much then. 1. they aren't forcing you to an unlimited plan that is ONLY IF YOU WANT to trade in your S6. 2. you shouldn't lose your employer discount (my wife has it on our account) and we changed from the More Everything to the new Verizon plan. It's $30 a month on Verizon as well and you can get the Gear VR setup as well.

    TMO charged me for the down payment and taxes. You pay taxes on the total value.
    When I've done Verizon in the past they've charged the taxes once the item shipped, but BB initially did it right away. I went back and checked though and it's no longer in my pending charges for my bank account and didn't come out of the account either... maybe it was just a funds check.

    I spoke to two different reps. I was talking about getting the pre order bonus. In order to get the vr headset you have to switch to the unlimited data plan, which employee discounts dont work on only veterans discount. I know i can upgrade without switching plans, but forfeit the pre order bonus.

    That's what it was. They can only place a hold on an account for so long before they release it and then make the actual charge later on. Normal behavior.

    I don't see how Verizon can control who does and doesn't get the Samsung pre-order bonus based on what plan they have, considering the pre-order bonus is redeemed through Samsung directly, not through Verizon.

    Show of hands, who's buying one? And what color/storage are you getting? If you're not getting one... why not?
    Just pre ordered my S8 in midnight black to upgrade from my white S6.

    The regular S8 just felt perfect in my hand while the S8+ felt a bit too tall for my liking. Besides, the S8 had a larger screen than my Note 3 and S6. It'll be fine.

    Best Buy is giving me $200 for my S6 and Note 3 so I'm good to go.

    Super excited now.

    Can't you just preorder through Verizon and get the promotion through Samsung directly? Once you get your phone?

    Doesn't make sense when I talked to a rep at the store and the rep on the phone that I asked about the promotions and they both said the same thing that it was the same and Gear VR was included.

    Added Note: Verizon is running 2 different promos: 1. Trade in your phone on the unlimited plan to get the phone cheaper on monthly plan. 2. Get the Gear VR Free from Samsung.com/promotions .

    Here was my chat with the VZ Rep moments ago:
    You:I already preordered but I heard that the only way to get the Gear VR promo was to have the unlimited package?
    DARYON: Nope if you look at the VR in the promotions page says. purchase required before 4/21/17. visit samsung.com/us/promotions to redeem free gear by 5/14/17.

    I'm going to clarify to everybody now about the preorder bonus and purchasing through Verizon.

    First, I working for the company, So I'm not pulling this out of thin air and second, People on here will vouch for the me, because whenever I give information it's always credible and correct.

    You DO NOT have to be on unlimited data to get the preorder bonuses. The bonuses have NOTHING to do with Verizon and Verizon is only letting people know about the deal. Just like it says on the site and Samsungs site, You are supposed to visit the Samsung promo site once you receive the phone to submit information for bonuses.

    NOW, Verizon is also running a trade in deal where you can get a upgraded value for your trade in and it will bring down your payments, but you have to trade in certain devices and be on unlimited to receive those trade in values.

    I hope this clears everything up for people.


    ALSO, Verizon will start shipping phones out Sunday/Monday of the week of the 21st. Don't expect anything the week before. Once you are charged, get excited. People who were able to choose overnight delivery will see movement after people who chose 2 day shipping, Which means everyone will receive most of their preorders around the same time. So for those who paid extra for overnight, don't expect it any earlier than others.

    I will try to keep everyone updated on here if anything changes.

    While people here are complaining about the prices and freebies of the S8, checkout this phone! It's $6,000!

    As frustrating as it was, I'm almost glad there were so many issues with me trying to order through Samsung.com, as it forced my hand to look elsewhere. The Best Buy S8+ deal (Verizon) seems almost too good to be true, but it's completely legit. Only $29.83 per month, multiplied by 24 months, comes to $715.92. That's more than a $100 discount. Plus still eligible for the pre-order bonus and it'll be delivered to me by 4/21. Pretty sweet.

    Ok cool. So I've never seen a Authorization charge on my CC but I got a confirmation email with my new phone number (just switched to Verizon) and a pre order number, location code and order number. Should I be worried if they didn't authorize my card?

    Not at all. Verizon doesn't charge people anything until they process and ship the phone. Do not be worried ☺️

    Certain things happen for a reason. Glad you got the better end of this one. Now just like the rest of us, it's a waiting game.

    Those that have received their trade in boxes where did it ship from? Also I remember last year my s7 came about 3 days early than what Verizon posted on their site.

    I also remember the cluster @#ck that was dealing Samsung promotions when I was trying to get my Gear S2 which took almost 3 months. Hopefully they have their **** together this year with the VR (not holding my breath)

    For me it was trying to order the Note 7 that gave me headaches. No one on the customer service side seemed to know anything and I had to place the order FIVE times before someone got it right.
