I just did my pre-order of the Mystic Bronze Note 20 Ultra using JOD. The sticker shock for the down payment was huge! I am upgrading from Note 10+. I tried to call to pre-order, but the area I was in was too noisy. The rep could not hear me. I used the app to open a chat and ordered through there. Much easier than dealing with a live rep on the phone. Since I was late to pre-order, I probably won't receive it until sometime next week.
I ordered from Samsung directly last night (T-Mobile, Ultra, 512GB, Black) to also get the ear buds with the phone instead of having to wait to get the phone and then claim the promotion. I normally do JOD but since the down was so frickin' high I decided to just purchase the phone out right. I'm going to try and just do every other generation since not much changes from one year to another... we'll see how that goes. Saumsung is saying "Expected Delivery Sep 15th". I'm hoping it's a lot sooner than that as it's almost a month away but it is what it is. I thought of trying to find one at a store on launch day and cancel but then I won't be eligible for the promotion as it has to be a pre-order by 8-20-20.
Just a heads up that TMobile Insider program is going on still and the note 20 should qualify for the 5g device rebate. If you know an associate of TMobile they can give you 1 of 3 insider codes to use. Each employee has 1 code to give new customer 20% off, new customer $200 rebate on 5g phone bought on EIP, and $200 rebate for existing customer to buy 5g phone on EIP. Redeem at insider.tmobile.com
UPS sent a text and said the phone would be delivered on Thursday (8/20). I was thinking of getting it directly from Samsung but yeah, it would not be delivered until sometime in September. I can wait for the buds.
Wow, that's crazy. I might have to call T-Mobile and cancel the Samsung order if it's that much of a time difference.
So I called T-Mobile and it's going to ship out tomorrow and should have it Tuesday. Thanks for the heads up on that, I wonder why Samsung is so much of a longer wait than T-Mobile?
This will be my third time I'm swapping out my device on Sprint and I just order a new sim card every time. It's the Sprint universal sim kit SIMOLW516TQ. This same card worked in the S10 and Note 10+ also.
