    I ordered mine last Thursday after cancelling my order on Samsung.com a few days back. I was charged yesterday morning and have tracking now and just received a text that it has shipped. So much pre-ordering on opening day. Guess it didn't matter. Now I just wait patiently for it to arrive. If it comes early then so be it, if it comes launch day then that was the day I was hoping to get it anyway so I will be happy either way.

    JUST DON'T LET IT ARRIVE AFTER LAUNCH DAY! LOL

    Wtf, I have been on Pending for days, and I figured it would clear after the holiday, and I go and look and there is no sign of it.

    And my UPS is still at Ready for UPS since 4/13
    @Mike-Mike et al:

    yes, like you and others, despite the fact that i pre-ordered at exactly midnight when pre-order commenced, my tracking number has been showing "ready for ups" since April 13th as well!

    that's so strange and seemingly without reason.

    sigh.

    I don't know why so many are surprised. The text that many received specifically stated shipping would start the 19th.

    When I got the UPS notification on Friday I assumed it would be shipped that day or Monday the latest.

    I ordered at the same time and I've been stuck since April 13 at 5:40pm.

    I think with the rare exception of a hand full of people (where their order shipped already) we aren't supposed to have our orders shipped until tomorrow for delivery on Thursday.

    Just because we ordered right at midnight, the day our card was charged, when we got the processing information from UPS, FedEx, etc doesn't matter because they were going to hold our package until a certain day anyway.

    It would have been nice to get it a few days early but it looks like a Thursday delivery is when it will happen for the preorders...just like they told us

    I know one thing...I'm not going to do this again when it comes to future preorders because it seems like Samsung is sticking to their delivery dates and checking the forums every few hours isn't as much fun now.

    I was always so jealous of those on T-Mobile getting their devices early, when I finally switched carriers I was like sweet I will get to enjoy an early release haha.

    I lost all hope of an early release when they didn't stop the embargo on reviews this past weekend or Monday. Seems like the reviews flood, then the shipments follow suite. And yes I am still stuck at Waiting on UPS. Sad that it says that because it should say Waiting on T Mobile or Waiting on Samsung....

    Why would you assume it would ship out earlier than promised? I'm just curious of the logic here. There are things that need to happen before it gets into a truck and goes to your house. Like for one, a label has to be created. This should not give anyone false hope of anything. If T-Mobile said it would ship out on the 19th then I would not expect it any sooner based on current or previous experiences. We can all be hopeful however. No one should be disappointed. No one has any darn right to be disappointed.

    my text just thanked me for adding a line of service *which has been added to my account and is working sending me to a voicemail to setup my voicemail message* I didn't get a text with a shipped date. On T-Mobile site is shows shipped 04/13 5:35pm so I should have received mine 04/14 because it was overnight delivery but T-mobile is blocking the delivery. I called UPS and the rep almost told me it was on hold but stopped mid sentence and said I had to contact T-Mobile. ha

    @Extremevl:

    i agree that those of us who ordered THAT early on, i.e. right at midnight when the pre-orders began, ought to get some minor type of FAIR positioning on the queue.

    i'm not saying that we ought to get ours a week or two before everyone else, but what about just merely "first come, first served"?

    that seems fair.

    Hello everyone. I'm Storms24. I am a phone junkie. I love new cell phones. I love the rush of getting a new device and getting to explore all the new features. But I also love to look around the corner and see what is coming up. And yes... I love to pre-order. There is something about the excitement of tracking trucks, planes, and boxes that I enjoy. I have problem. I admit it. But I love it.

    me too, I just switched in Feb, and this is my first pre-order. I remember when I pre-ordered the S7e on VZW seeing all the Tmo people getting their phones early and i was so jealous.

    It was based off previous purchases where the item was delivered prior to the delivery date. In addition with most online purchases once the shipping label is created it's usually shipped that day or the following business day not 2-3 business days later

    Because they assumed that because the LG G6 was released early, Samsung will do the same for the S8. Well the truth is, LG is pretty desperate knowing Samsung was gonna announce the S8 so they decided to release it early to hopefully distract people from waiting on the S8.

    People that assumed Samsung will follow the same pattern as the G6 and even the S7, they were the ones that got furious at Samsung and T-Mobile. Most of us wished it shipped out early but we all knew it was just wishful thinking.

    Umm you haven't been paying attention have you? You should go back read about what happen during the Note 7 release. Samsung kept everyone from releasing it early. Most got their Note 7 one day before it went to the stores. They had to wait like almost a week before T-Mobile shipped it out after creating the label.
