    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)
    From Verizon..I just kept the box somewhere because I may sell my s7 edge on swappa

    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.
    I forgot to ask this though, my order was billed to my account, probably because I chose device payment...that shouldn't be an issue right?

    how did you like the gear s2 watch? is it any good or useful? i was thinking of getting the gear s3 frontier
    It works as advertised. I mainly use it for counting steps and to listen to music with my headphones. Now that they have the connector that allows you to swap out bands that aren't silicone it's awesome. The S3 looks even better. They S2 was free and nothing beats free99.

    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.
    BB is also offering a similar deal on AT&T. I am tempted, but do we have to stay on the payment plan for 24 months to be eligible for that price/deal?

    What if I pay it off a couple days after the account/contract is established? This seems to be cheaper than buying retail/unlocked.

    That's correct. But the fine print says there might only be 50,000 of those bundles available. Ordering directly from Samsung allows you to purchase a bundle now. Anyone else has to wait til the phones arrive, then get the bundle.

    If they decide to limit those bundles to only 50,000, they could go quick.
    I will apply for the bundle with headset and SD card the day I get the phone, but be assured that if its declined after being presented as a sales incentive, Sprint can have the phone back for not honoring the advertised deal.

    I would suspect a large number of folks would not take to being told they missed out on the bundles after the fact would not sit well. Most will likely be diligent enough to complete the offer request upon receipt of the phone.

    Just pre-ordered at Wal-Mart. They offer a $150 rebate AND you still get the VR kit. Nice deal. Ordered the Orchid Gray. Looking forward to pickup!

    That's odd. Just checked tmobile shipping times, and they still have the same dates listed and their shipping times are still the release date. They're pretty good about keeping that page up to date.

    I canceled my order for my S8 Plus as I just couldn't part with my Mate 9 yet. I canceled this morning and even called to Samsung confirm the cancellation.

    A few hrs later I received a Fed EX notification stating I have a package coming tomorrow. The invoice # is listed as "SAMSUNGGIFT56". So I am wondering if that is the VR????? Not sure what I should do as I have already canceled my order and there was no mention of anything being shipped to me. Hmmmm.

    I'd just keep it. When the Pixel XL launched I ordered two. Received two VR headsets. Sent pixels back and kept VR headsets. Also ordered two V20's.. Kept both pair of B&O headphones. No one ever asked for any of it back.

    Yeah. I just thought it was kinda weird how it all happened. I really won't have any use for it though unless I get the phone later on down the road. Guess I could always sell it....
