    Just after 24 hours of registering, I got my Gear VR confirmation e-mail.
    Hope it really won't take 6-8 weeks but free is free.

    Post up when you get your confirmation.

    P.S. I registered through the app, not online.


    P.P.S. - Note your shipping confirmation info also. Samsung seems to be getting them out pretty quick.

    How do you register for it? My phone registered with Samsung automatically when I logged in. I thought the free VR was coming from Verizon though?

    Can you let me know how you got your registration complete? I bought mine yesterday and it is arriving tomorrow. The Verizon rep sent me a link on my current phone and I went to register but I could not get anywhere with it. I called them back a while ago and they said the info for the free Gear VR would be included in the box and when I get the box tomorrow I should go to samsung.com/us/promotions and register it them.

    The "Shop Samsung" app is where to go.
    It is coming from Samsung themselves.

    I registered through the Samsung Pay app and it says review will take approximately two weeks!!??

    It only asked for a copy of the receipt and not the IMEI or MAC address. It asked where I purchased the phone so I'm assuming this method isn't only for people who purchased through Samsung.

    The app gets those numbers automatically.

    It said 24 hours for me too... but it was approved in two hours and I already paid the $99 plus tax for the immersion bundle.

    They must have had you at the top of their list since they already got your $99 bucks.

    That's my theory too. If you pay for The extras you her approved faster. I got the $99 bundle and got approved in seconds. My status says its on the way, but no shipping email yet.

    I used the site and was approved. I thought I clicked the $99 bonus thing but I now have an email saying they sent it.

    The email approval may be one thing, but have you checked your Gift Status on their website?

    Boom! Here's hoping it will come a lot sooner than the email's projection of 6-8 weeks.

    I have the same screen as yours, but i didnt get a follow up email with tracking number and they haven't charged me yet (yes it was 99 bundle - 2x in fact since I got 2 phones).

    Something interesting is the check mark says "Sent", but the wording says "processed" and not shipped.

    Idk...

    Had to resubmit for my VR due to the purchase date not being there like I thought. Hopefully it still goes through.

    i wear glasses.

    may i ask if the GearVR can accommodate folks who wear glasses, or, do we have to take our glasses off first before putting on the GearVR?

    thanks.

    How quickly did everyone get an email about the registration? I filled out the form 10 minutes ago and didn't get any sort of email acknowledgement that I did it.

    I proceeded my paperwork and added a photo of the label and I was approved! I checked my status today and the label was vague.

    Within a few minutes after registering through the app for me. In the e-mail, there will be a link to "check gift status". It will take a bit after that before your registration is "accepted" and in the system.

    I was surprised when I checked mine a few minutes ago and saw it was accepted (not yet approved) and the IMEI and MAC address info was filled in since the app didn't ask for that info. Maybe it pulled the info from the phone during registration?

    approved but not "shipped" yet.

    wonder how long after approval do they ship it out?
