Anyone who has ordered a phone from AT&T prior...
If the release date is October 1st, does AT&T make every effort to make certain the phone is at your door on that date?
In other words, would they would ship it out 1-2 days prior?
I actually should have the answer to this question as I ordered a Note II last year from AT&T. It was after release date, however, and I did receive it next day despite the free 2-day shipping.
