    So far I've only heard of people getting "we don't have it" from Best Buy so far today, although I could swear someone from BB Mobile was saying yesterday that they'd gotten some in at their store.

    I thought maybe this would be a good central place to post about Best Buy availability, since some of us need to buy it there vs. other stores. Personally I haven't called around yet, it's been too busy at work, and I'm not desperate to get the phone today, but I would like to know how likely it'll be that I can pick one up tomorrow or Saturday...

    I've called 2 in KC and they both said they expect to see them in the UPS shipment today, which they said usually comes by 1 and to check back after then.

    Yep, Kansas City. I called the one at Tiffany Springs and the one in Liberty. They were pretty certain they would get it today, so I'm going to check back in with them before I head home after work to see if they came in.

    Incase you think you can wait and you are a rewardzone member, when they add the Note 2 to this site

    https://rewardzonemobile.com/

    and you use "RZSAVE10" as the offer code it will save you 10%.

    If neither of those BB's near me get them today, I will probably wait until it gets added on there to save an extra $30

    They can't apply that code if you buy it in the store?

    Not sure, but it is worth a shot. If you find one in store and they let you use it, let us know.

    I am live in the Ga and none of the best buy stores have them yet either. I also called the best buy toll free number and they don't have any information on when they are going to get any in. My local best buy said there shipment comes in today but don't know if they will be on there. But they said they got the Samsung Galaxy note 2 in yesterday for the T-Mobile. So I will have to wait patiently.

    I just got back from the closest Best Buy to me (midtown NYC) for the 2nd time today. First time, they told me it might be on today's shipment, but it should be in by tomorrow. This time, they checked the computer and said they don't have it, none of the local stores have it, and there is no stock date indicated. Take that with a grain of salt, as the guy seemed a little confused by the computer. So far, no luck with Best Buy in NYC today... =(

    Alright folks. If one best buy in one state doesnt have any note 2s in stock and another best buy in another state doesnt have any note 2s in stock either, then odds are all best buy stores wont know exactly when theyll get them in... even if one best buy gets them in earlier than another store, all best buys will still receive information that the phone has been made available at best buy. either check the website until you see it availabe OR wait until someone that works at best buy officially announces that its available on this forum.

    Hah! Just checked Best Buy for the heck of it and the Sprint GN2 is listed now! Unfortunately it's $330, and also when you click on check shipping and availability it says "Backordered - expect to ship to whithin 1-2 weeks" That doesn't preclude them becoming available at stores before that timeframe though...

    I just checked too and it says 299 not 330. I called my local store just to see if they had gotten them in today but they didn't. The person I talked to sounded clueless and said they will have them in " a few weeks".....

    I was told they should have them in a few weeks... But they are taking preorders. How can you take preorders if you don't even know when you will get them in stock?

    After talking with a few people from Best Buy, they aren't expecting to receive any until 11/11! I hope this isn't true but I just wanted to keep everyone updated with the information I am getting!

    Typical, the one new phone I have been most excited about is the one where best buy fails me. They had every other phone in stock on launch they that I wanted before, but not the note 2!

    I just talked to the local BB Mobile store here in Maryland and he said, November 11th is when they expect them. The retail BB store said they expect them "any day".

    I actually spoke with some one from the rewardzone mobile site. They said that they don't know when they will actually have them in stock, supposedly Sprint isn't letting 3rd parties sell them yet. She also told me that the reason people are having issues pre-ordering on the website is that they are having some company wide system issues, though I don't seem to have any problems with any other items on their site.

    I am glad this is the last time that I "have" to buy it from Best Buy. Sucks being limited to a particular store. This is the last time I can use the buy back protection plan, so I will be getting 350 bucks for my S3. I also have 40 bucks in reward zone credits, so in total, I have 390 dollars towards my full price purchase of the Note 2. Combine that with their price matching down from the Best Buy $799 price down to the $650 of the Sprint price, and I am down to less than what full upgrade eligibility would have cost me, and I don't have to pay the upgrade fee. I guess all this is a good reason and wait the next 2 weeks while others get to enjoy theirs already.

    Good call Manny. I have to go the BB route because I thought I was so smart when I cashed in some Marriott reward points for a $200 BB gift card. I have some RZ dollars too. I suppose it also give the Samsung a chance to weed out any issues. I bought my current EVO 4g three weeks after launch and it has been bullet proof.

    Too bad your taste in phones does not extend to cars. LOL Mustangs woooo!
