    If it's true Samsung allowed folks to purchase up to Ten $99 Immersive Bundles for every phone and because they had that $99 bundle up to purchase before most folks even got their phones, perhaps they deliberately made it so that you had to have your phone in order to fulfill registration, then it almost seems as though they created a false "Rush" to order while the Gear VR was still in stock! This would explain how 50,000 $99 Immersive orders be sold, but people still getting their Gear VR days after the 50,000 supplies of $99 Headphones / SD Cards sold out. It means perhaps only 10,000 Gear VR's were shipped out out of that 50,000, due to folks buying multiple $99 bundles for their phone! I found out that they made the Phone Pre-Order for Oculus cuttoff time extended to the 27th, just a few days ago! Just seems a little fishy to me, like they purposefully made it this in order to get people on the fense about upgrading their phones another reason to hurry up and purchase before the Free Gear VR's were gone! It's also because that bundle sold out that a "Surge" of folks shortly after submitted their registration and thus perhaps 100,000 of the 350,000 gear VR's were registered within the next couple days after the $99 bundle sold out, flooding the system of orders and me being the guy who now has to wait until all of those 100,000 gear vr's are shipped out before I get mine!!

    I just can't see any other reason why they wouldn't have the same amount of $99 Bundles as the 350,000 supplies of Gear VR's! Also would explain why they just didn't have the option to pick up your gear VR in stores where the phones were sold. My Verizon store had Gear VR's in stock when I had them activate my phone! Samsung wanted to "Funnel" people into their "Shop Samsung" app, in order to get as much $$ Revenue back for the money they loss on doing this promotion through alerting folks about products they have for sale in that app! Why else was registration for the Free gear VR so much easier using the App and purposefully more difficult without it?! Back sometime November 2015 going into 2016, they had sold out of Gear VR's for their preorder of Galaxy S6! (and Gear VR's in general directly purchased without the phone!) Knowing the demand for Gear VR was this high, they're probably dangling it out like a carrot on a stick, trying to create that sort of demand for it like before, despite the hype for it having died down since back then!

    Mine just says that it's under review. It's been that way since I pre-ordered the phone. The primary reason I pre-ordered the phone without checking it out in a store first was because of the free VR stuff.

    They had better not screw me over here. I'll do everything in my power to return the phone for a refund.

    I do too. If you look at the status from a desktop it gives you more info. Not much but it doesn't say insert graphic. Lol

    Just pick the order number and rant on whoever answers the phone. Tell them you have been routed around for 2 hours and need to get things straightened out without another tranfer

    Is anyone having issues with their Promo Code for the $99 bundle being "invalid" I got the approval email to order the $99 Immersive VR bundle and when I use the app or website by clicking on the link inside the email, I keep getting the error and it shows the $579 price in the shopping cart. Numerous attempts to get this corrected after being on hold 3+ hrs 2x has resulted in the same, "we'll send you a new email with a new link/promo code" yet nothing after almost 2 weeks now. Anyone else have this issue?

    Did you ever get the email for tracking and "gift Sent" status update? Some have claimed their package arrived and it never going past "Prosessing-Gift?" and no email with tracking either! I'm sure hoping that perhaps mine has been shipped already and might come today even! Please any info you've got is much appreciated! I CAN'T BEAR to remain trapped in this "non-Virtual" reality a day longer!! I need to get jacked in the "Real-World!"

    Received FedEx notification of shipment from Brightpoint a few minutes ago. Based on the weight (5lbs) and size of the package (19x5x10) I'm guessing this is it.

    Still nothing from Samsung and my credit card hasn't been charged yet. Maybe the fulfillment warehouse has been swamped with phone and accessory orders since the S8 release.

    For those who received their order confirmation on 4/22 for the $99 bundle like me, hang in there.

    Apparently a New Promo Starts today......but the offering sort of sucks (64 gb microsd card, a case for movie watching, and 6 months of netflix) in comparison to the preorder promos Gear VR registration/approval/shipping/arrival info & also problems.-screenshot-2017-05-03-8.18.15-pm.png

    Finally got mine yesterday! Love the card, the headphones are excellent (to me at least), but the controls take some getting used to.

    However, they had already sent me the free bundle (Gear VR, controller and Oculus code). Thinking about putting it on eBay to compensate for the time I lost calling/emailing Samsung.

    TRAFFIC Department
    501 AIRTECH PKWY
    PLAINFIELD, IN US 461687408
    317 707-2192

    It is coming Fedex home not 2 day, Is 1.6 lbs and has no dimensions listed.

    Only other thing I ordered with Samsung is got the free month of Samsung premium care.
    Wonder if they send documents or something.. Hmmm

    To update I got this Yesterday and it was the Free VR headset/controller Only...

    However I did sign up for the $99 Bundle and got an ship confirmation email this AM for the $99 Bundle.
    So maybe looks like I will end up with 2 VR's?

    Still debating whether or not to even call them. I don;t have an hour to wait on hold for their mistake.
