    in fact it probably is the phone I would think. It says 0.8 lbs. I would think the VR headset,sd card and AKG headphones would weigh more than 0.8 lbs.

    Anyone's credit card charged yet? My PayPal Credit line has the funds authorized but hasn't been taken by Samsung.

    I have an incoming shipment also. I think it's a free "bonus" gift. Not the $99 bundle. I read a report about Samsung sending "Day 1 pre-order" people a surprise bonus. I don't want to spoil the surprise by finding out what it is.

    I also haven't been charged yet.

    I was charged by Samsung a few days ago. No shipping notice of anything has been received. I'd be shocked to receive my phone a minute earlier

    Got an email from Samsung today with coupon for savings on accessories with my S8 serial number - can't be far away from shipping now.

    Anyone order from Samsung directly?-s8-serial-number.png

    Okay I just signed up Fed ex manager 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

    Whoa, Friday delivery from Brightpoint for me 0.9 lbs., signature required.

    ETA: I went for the S8 and $99 bonus.

    Also says Arrived at Fedex Location. So it's already in transit, not just a label. IE, not a false alarm.

    I just got updated shipping info too for package that is .9 lbs. I wonder if it's the VR gear or something else or the phone. It wouldn't make sense to ship the VR or other bonus items a week early. What good would it do us without the phone, plus wouldn't it be cheaper to ship them at the same time?

    Well I just got an email with updated tracking and the actual package has now been picked up tonight and for scheduled delivery on fri, .9 lbs. Don't know if this is the VR set or the phone.

    I ordered the Verizon model, using PayPal Credit. Should I be concerned that I haven't been charged yet?

    Did you call them and verify everything is fine on your order? My first PayPal credit order had issues so had to cancel it, next time just used regular PayPal with the standard pay anytime within 6 months offer and money was charged to my PayPal account immediately and also got email from PayPal and confirmation email from Samsung.

    Ya. Receiving a gear VR with no phone to put inside would be pointless.
    They should send us note 7 victims the phone early. Least they can do for me as a customer to trust them again bring an early adopter lol

    same as others posting. pre-ordered from Samsung.com on 3/30. Black S8 and $99 bundle.

    0.8lb package incoming. Maybe the "free gift" or bundle? I seriously doubt it's the phone. But hey, I can maybe play with the BT headphones early

    Scheduled delivery:
    Fri 4/14/2017 by end of day

    My PayPal credit charge just changed from Authorized to Payment. It actually separated into $99+tax for the Immersive Bundle and $650+tax for the S8.

    Things are definitely happening.

    I think its the phone that's being delivered. What could possibly weigh 0.8 lbs? I have 2 deliveries on my Samsung order page. 1 delivery is the phone and the 2nd delivery is the Fully immersive Gear VR experience which I know weighs more than 0.8 lbs

    I ordered from Samsung and got a confirmation email almost immediately. Did they start shipping phones? I got a package being delivered by fed ex Friday and there's nothing else it could be.

    That doesn't make sense. I mean this isn't the iPhone 7. I also doubt they will run out of stock like Apple does. One good thing about Samsung is generally they produce enough devices to go around. I sometimes think Apple does that on purpose.
    They do. Just like Nintendo.

    I'm thinking no. My Samsung account still has the cancel button.

    I don't think the package arriving Friday is the phone or the VR. It's something else.

    It's already been posted in a couple of threads and one thread even had a picture. It is some type of passive speaker gizmo, it's NOT a phone.

    A couple of people have already received it and they posted the pictures.
