    Good point, I have to be more careful with that kind of info!

    If anyone cancels my order I'll just get another S8 on release day, np

    At least with this message from T-Mobile I can stop checking 2X per day if the order shipped. Lol
    Although it's not good to post any info like that publicly, someone would need far more than an order number to do anything.

    Okay I just signed up for Fex EX.com and it says 4/13 end of day and .8 pounds. Seems heavy for the VR set. I remember my promotions gift with the Note 7 my shipping tracking was inaccurate because the label was created but didn't ship out for a week. It might be the same way with this. It's an auto generated estimate when the sticker is created but it's not shipped out yet until next week.

    If I'm correct with my Note 7 also I could see the shipping label that weekend printed by UPS and then nothing happened for a few days.

    If you ordered directly from Samsung then you will be receiving the Amplifier Speaker Dock. That is what mine was. I was thinking it may be the VR but it wasn't.

    .8 pounds is not even 1 pound. Not heavy at all.

    Of course it's not heavy. The S8+ weighs a whopping 6 oz. That means the packaging and other stuff weighs more than the phone.

    The updated email I just got from fedex saying my package is in transit and shipping now says .9 lbs. I don't know to believe those estimates.

    yep, my 0.8 lb package (whatever it is) is in transit (in Indianapolis as we speak) with a delivery date of 4/14 (signature required). Not sure what it is and I wonder if it will be held somewhere along the way if it is the phone?

    EDIT: I assume you're the same Blues fan on XDA I replied to earlier today

    Yep, that's me! I'm confused by all this too. I thought the VR freebie and phone were shipping together?

    This appears to possibly be some other freebie for ordering early. We will see on Friday.

    March 31 Midnight-Ordered the S8 in Silver from T-Mobile.

    April 1- Saw the phones at my local T-Mobile store.
    Discovered the S8+ was only a hair wider than my S7 Edge.

    April 1- Cancelled original order and ordered the S8+ in silver.

    I've already received my Spigen Unicorn Beetle case and USB-C cables and car chargers from Amazon.

    April 12- Received the text from TM. Called to get clarification. The site says my order will ship "Overnight - Up to 2 business days (Free)". Overnight and two days are two different services. The rep said it was being sent USPS... which is frightening. $850 + $71.40 tax = $921.40. That's an expensive piece of gear to put faith in a mailman. She also said the only way to change shipping was to cancel the order and start over. My hope is that she was blowing smoke.

    T-Mobile hasn't hit my Amex yet.

    Amazon switched to USPS over a year ago. I have received every shipment on time, some on Sunday delivery. Most expensive item was $400. I don't worry the least bit about USPS.

    They don't ship overnight, they ship Next Day Air Saver. TMobile gives themselves an out in case they don't get the package to UPS on time so they tell you up to 2 days.
