Curious who pre-ordered? I ordered my Verizon gold 64gb on 2/24 and the charge is pending on my account with a date of 2/29. Does Best Buy ship once account is charged? My Best Buy still says pre-ordered..

I preordered mine from Best Buy as well. A free SD card & I had $50 Gift card from Christmas I've been waiting to use was enough reason to go with Best Buy. As far as cards being charged, I used my gift card so I can't tell if anything has been charged or not. My order status still says in progress as well.

Yep, in progress/processing. Hasn't changed. I did in-store pickup, so I don't expect it to change until pick-up day.

How much initial setup are they going to insist on doing when I pick up my phones at Best Buy?I really want to take them home and charge them fully before setup.

Your phone will ship with at least 50% battery out of the box . And best buy will set your phone up for you use smart switch it'll pull all your information over

Have Best Buy past pre orders ever arrived prior to release date?
I worked for Best Buy Mobile for years and I can't remember a single instance of preorders arriving early. A lot of the time Best Buy doesn't even ship until the actual release date. The company is incredibly strict with product releases.

I tried to pre-order on the bestbuy website but apparently it doesn't work well with AT&T so I ordered straight from them. Kinda sucked because I was just in the store and told the guy I would do it at home online. Doesn't really matter tho because I found a 128 gb micro SD for a good price on Amazon. And last year my pre-order of the GS6 got me the phone 2 days before it was on sale in stores. I'm hoping it's even more with the S7 edge

I am pre-ordering tomorrow from the Best Buy Mobile in the mall near my house. I am getting the Silver Edge and my husband Black. But were coming from only owning HTC's so it's going to be new to us. We wont be transferring anything over from backup. But once I put in my google password in my google settings will be their right like my contacts and apps? I went with Best Buy cause of the free 64 Gig Card don't really care for the Gear may sell it. But their really nice and helpful at the Best Buy Mobile and last year they gave us 20% off of our Zagg Glass protectors. I'm hoping they do that again. Today he told me all his accessories just came in so I'll see them tomorrow.

Sprint is my carrier and they made me mad the other day too but Best Buy always has better deals. But if I order from Sprint it will be shipped on the 6th and the warehouse is in my city and I'll get it the next day. But I guess I can wait a few days and I am hoping Best Buy gives us 20% off Zaggs again.

If you ordered the regular S7 in black you won't have an issue getting it on time.
