    What happened with the note 7?
    Everybody with all carriers were getting their shipping notices early like now, and then they say at the delivery hub with future delivery dates of release date, which here would be next Friday. Created a lot of mad people.

    Verizon was more known for this. Others like T-Mobile just let them go.

    Pretty sure on the note 7, all carriers did that. T-Mobile did get theirs first as usual.

    Well yeah -- But if T-Mobile told them a specific date they would have waited. Verizon purposely does this to have it come out on release date so the carrier listens. T-Mobile just hands the package and says "2 day sir" so UPS/FedEx just says "OK" and gets it moving.

    When I had to reorder the S8 the rep on the phone advised me that we should be getting them before the 21st (take that with a grain of salt) and i got Overnight shipping because of the mixup. Thanks Fraud Dept.

    I was saying I hope they don't do what they did with the note 7. I'm well aware of Verizon's way of doing things, been with them for 18 years, LOL.

    It's all good, hoping for a no repeat. I'm sure T-Mobile will be first and Verizon last as usual.

    I have an iPhone 7 and ordered my s8 plus straight from Samsung website.

    Do I just have to swap my SIM card?

    Also, does Verizon allow me to turn in my iPhone 7 without trading it towards anything?
    So, Verizon is weird when it comes to Sim cards between IPhone and Android. It'll fit and it'll work, BUT it does mess with visual voicemail. Verizon makes 2 different sim cards, a Nano NFC which is for all Android phones that use the Nano size and a Nano sim without NFC which is for Iphones.

    You can swap it and if you run into voicemail issues, Then I would request a new sim.

    The iphone and Galaxy S8, S6, S7 all take nano sims. They are completely interchangeable.
    I switch sims between my Pixel XL and 7+ all the time.
    This is correct.

    So, does the nano NFC work just fine with the iPhone?

    Or does it still mess up?

    I'm wondering if the phone is going to arrive from Samsung with a new SIM card in it.

    Idk how I would activate it at that point. I guess call them.

    Usually unlocked phones do not come with a sim unless purchased directly from a carrier.

    But it would work just fine.

    It's not unlocked, it's a Verizon phone, just ordered directly from Samsung.

    I'm getting the Galaxy S8+ and coming from an iPhone 6S Plus. Will I have to swap SIM cards or can I just activate the S8+ and be good to go?

    They really should come out with different names, there are two types of unlocked and they are both different. Sometimes people get them mixed up.

    Just to back up the two posts above mine -- Verizon LTE phones are factory unlocked already (unlike other carriers).

    Well, I mean I ordered it from Samsung and it's a Verizon retail phone so maybe it already has a Verizon sim in it.

    He ordered them and got them early, or he just got them randomly?
