    Ok, so T-Mobile finally charged my card this morning at 10AM ET for my Orchid Grey S8 Plus that I preordered back on 4/8?

    How long does it take until I get a status update on the order on my.tmobile.com, or a UPS label generated so I can track it in My UPS Choice?

    Just think of it this way, in a few months you'll have money (for the Note 8) while everyone else is trying to come up with money. This is an expensive hobby (if you even call it that).
    I don't plan on buying the Note 8. I spent enough the last year on phones. If I want the Spen I will probably pick up a Tab S3 later in the year when the price goes down.

    Sounds like a solid plan. The Tab S3 is easily a couple hundred bucks less than any flagship phone coming out...and you get your S-pen fix (if you were into using it)

    I just can't imagine spending another $900 on the Note 8 later this year after I bought the V20 unlocked (hated it but still have it) the Note 7, regular S7 last year and now the S8 Plus. Lots of money being spent. I'm hoping there are sales and it dips down to about $500. Basically a larger version of the Note. I have a Tab S7 and V20 I can trade in to go towards the Tab s3.

    Don't you sell your old phones or something to recoup the cost?

    Yea, usually I trade them in at Tmobile or Best Buy. The S7 I had I sold to my dad a month ago for $165 with a couple cases which he got a killer deal and I took a loss on it. He had an S5 that was dying and needed a new phone. I was trying to sell it to him for $300 but he didn't want to pay that much.

    I agree it does get quite expensive. The Note 7 was supposed to end my spending spree for the next 2-3 years. I'm hoping the same for the Note 8.

    Facts: (as of 6:30pm Eastern Time, Friday, April 14th)

    - none of us have further tracking information besides merely a tracking number.

    - none of us have our phones "picked up by UPS" (and in the possession of UPS) yet.

    - all of us are waiting for the next step: "Picked up by UPS", and then the first tracking info shows up, with an "Estimated Arrival Date".


    The singular exception to the above is one person (@chapppy) who has "Out for Delivery" for today, Friday, April 14th.


    Best Case Scenario:

    - as far as I can tell, the very best case scenario is that later on this evening (Friday), our packages are "Picked up by UPS" and early on / initial tracking info shows up later on tonight.

    - I'm certain that TMobile didn't pay for the exorbitantly high UPS Saturday Delivery fees, so NONE of us would get our phones tomorrow or Easter Sunday.

    - Earliest possible day of receiving our phones: Monday, April 17th.

    I'm excited because I finally got a tracking number. Even though it doesn't have any really pertinent information it's still a tracking number and that makes me feel more at ease also what I did was ahead of time I sent by default my UPS pickup location so it goes straight there instead of attempting to go to my house first

    This was text message from T-Mobile yesterday Attachment 256658
    Just curious: when did you order your S8? I ordered my S8+ on the morning of the 30th, but my text message says they'll start shipping on April 19 (my text also says S8 even though I ordered an S8 plus, but I'm not reading too much into that).

    Basically I'm wondering if ship dates are based on customer locations or order times. I would certainly have a hard time believing my order will be delayed a full day due to my waiting 8 hours after the phone became available before I ordered!

    Go back and take a look a @chappy's post. One pic shows something being delivered today but that page has no weight and no shipper, it could be anything. Then there is the shipping text but nowhere are the two tied together.

    Also, very new person here so credibility is not established and he has not reposted with any pics or proof of delivery. I'm now calling FAKE!

    If we're lucky we getting shipping tonight with a monday delivery. High probability of a monday ship with Tuesday delivery.

    All these texts seem to have different ship dates. I ordered on 4/7 and my text says shipping on April 18. Doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason for it.

    So I have been waiting for my package all day, and it won't be coming today. So the tracking information said it was going to be shipped out today, but, according to UPS (called them), they said T-Mobile did a hold on the package so that it would be only delivered on X date. The packages are already in my city, but all held at the UPS facility until authorization from T-Mobile.

    It sucks, because I waited all day for it.
