Even if Best Buy gets it in before the carrier stores do they can't sell them until the carrier lets them. This happened w/ the Verizon Note 2, some Best Buy stores got them in a week before the official Verizon release date. I found a store & went to check it out ( mainly to see how the Verizon logo looked on the home button
). When I asked the BB manager if I could buy one he said not until Verizon lets them & that they only got 1 in anyway just to use for display purposes.
