I'm supposed to get it by tomorrow too via USPS. I knew I should have done the overnight shipping. I actually called the day after I pre-ordered on the 26th to add overnight but they said they could not longer make any changes. Oh well, it's going to be one more very long day.

Nope. Who doesn't have at least 10 pairs of cheap earbuds anyways?

Everything is fine so far, activation went smoothly and fast. I'm getting REALLY good speed with 4G LTE, about 20mb down and 10 up, faster than my damn internet. Trying out some games now and then I'm gonna start customizing a little bit.

EDIT: I have to exchange mine, it has a small burnt pixel.


EDIT 2: Upon closer inspection it's a small nick on my screen.

I checked my USPS shipping status this morning. It now says "Expected Delivery By: November 9, 2012".

My wife has already arranged to visit her sister on Saturday with our daughter. Saturday is going to be pure unadulterated GN2/Jellybean geeking out.

It is 4:15pm in CA and FedEx's last update shows it Arrived at FedEx location since 12:24am (almost 16 hours ago) with no departure scan yet; I'm hoping it is not stuck in Texas and it just has not been scanned in CA yet. The wait and lack up timly updates are driving me crazy

Anyone with a 2nd day FedEx shipping show any updates besides what I see?

EDIT Just called FedEx, the plane that is supposed to take my phone from TX to CA has been delayed (it came in about 3 hrs late into TX); but it is still expected to fly to CA today and be out for delivery by 4:30 pm tomorrow

At least I got a real answer and a better answer that I was ever able to get from AT&T

The address that it is at is "2001 world wide dr, fort worth, tx" at the airport

Mine is expected to be delivered tomorrow before 4:30. Does anyone know if we have to sign for these, as I will NOT be home Can we pre-sign? This is my first android phone, coming from the iPhone 5.

@Captain Funk:
Per FedEx: "For packages not requiring a signature for release, our drivers will leave the package at a recipient's door, or other secure location, if the driver believes it is reasonable to do so. If your package was shipped with the Indirect Signature Release option, you may leave a signed and dated handwritten note on the door instructing the driver to leave the package at your door."
See Signature Proof of Delivery Support | FedEx Customer Support

From what we've all been told by FedEx they are not requiring signatures on these deliveries, but its up to the driver to leave it if he believes its reasonable. If you want to ensure it's left leave a handwritten note asking that it be left and sign it.

@james27007: My FedEx status shows delivery here in alabama by 4:30PM on 11/9/12 and departure yesterday from Texas at 10:50PM. That said there have been no updates since the departure scan. I would expect with shipments this large from AT&T it would be common for all packages not to be scanned at each stage.

EDIT: Glad to see its on the way.

Looks like FedEx got things fixed; it left Texas at 3 something this morning and landed in Ontario CA at 4 something. Looks like I really will get it today

Mine arrived at 10:18am EST.

However, I think I am going to return it and go with the S3. My fiance ordered it for me without me ever even playing with the size of the Note I.
After trying the Note I yesterday, I don't think I could get used to a 5.55 inch screen.

S3 is still an upgrade over my iPhone 4!

11-2 but was canceled 11-5 because I wanted it sent to my work, which is in another state (only 15 min from home) I reordered 11-5 with delivery address the same as billing, it went through.

What stinks is the local store has them, & I can't get one, I already tried ... it's gonna be a long weekend.

Give it 2 weeks (you have 30 days) and I'm 90% sure you will change your mind and keep it; if not the SGSIII is a great phone and I will be getting my wife one soon. As for the size of the Note, I thought the same thing with my Note 1 and as you can see I'm now getting the Note 2. So far everyone I know that got the Note 1 and waited 2 weeks to take it back, kept it.

THAT JUST SUCKS; I would be going insane!!!

I would call AT&T, tell them you are veru upset by this and because of the delay (since you did pre-order it and it said scheduled to ship on the 6th on the website) you want the activation fees waved. If the FedEx site originally said today; raise heck and get something.

As expected, FedEx has delivered my package to another address. I was keeping an eye on the progress of my package and saw that it was delivered to a corporation! I immediately ran out the house and tracked down the driver for my area and indeed he said he accidentally delivered it to the wrong address. Now I'm awaiting him to bring my package to me. This is why I choose to never use FedEx! They have lost previous packages sent to me, I have yet to ( knock on wood) lose a package from UPS.

Lucky you.

I ordered from AT&T, had Fedex notification on 11/7 for delivery on 11/8.

On 11/8 the delivery date changed to 11/9...

Still waiting for it today.

This is why I choose to never use FedEx! They have lost previous packages sent to me, I have yet to ( knock on wood) lose a package from UPS.
So did he bring it to you?

I thought you were going to say it arrived. Was your delivery slated for today?

Its past the time the US Postal service typically makes deliveries

So I'm bummed.

Might have to track it down / file a claim

Tracked it down - my neighbor had it!

picked mine up this afternoon from my building. i was not planning on opening it because I want to try it out in stores first to see if I could get used to the size.
the seal arrived broken and has a piece of scotch tape over it to hold it shut.
what the hell! now I am going to get charged by ATT the restocking fee if I return it.

I ordered on 10/24 and mine arrived while I was at lunch. I've got to say never having had this much real android (Nook Tablet rooted until blocked by Barnes and Noble). This phone has a LOT of options and will take a lot more customizing to get it to where I want it. With Apple I was just screwed if I didn't like what I was offered.

My only concern thus far is I noticed that if I was in certain apps when I got a phone call that it would not ring on the phone and would eventually go to voicemail. That's a serious problem. I also do not like that the screen shows oil from skin much worse than I noticed with my Iphone with an otterbox case on it. That said once I get the Otterbox that should be a non-issue and I don't recall ever using the iphone without the case so I don't recall if it was the same. I'm at work and haven't had a chance to put it through the paces but I loaded one video online to see how it loaded compared to the iphone and the Iphone 4 screen appeared clearer on the same video. It is FAST, REALLY FAST!!! It may have been due to size but there's no telling. It could have been a buffering issue too. All in all. I love this phone and will like it more once I'm used to it. Very impressed so far. I think once I've had more experience with android that these concerns will all be addressed.

My son feels the same way. Comparing the two, the iPhone gives a crispier look.

I was a bit spooked as well, since I could not locate the actual SIM card.

it appears AT&T pre-installs the SIM card prior to shipping.

As I mentioned elsewhere - I removed the SIM card, and intend to fully check out all features of the phone on Wi-FI alone for a few days - minus the AT&T Network required functions.

Essentially use it as a PDA until I get comfortable with the OS.

This is my first Android phone, but looking forward to ditch the iPhone (re-designate it as an IOS Music Creation Tool).

The Galaxy Note 2 makes me want to practice a thick Aussie accent "ala" Crocodile Dundee and tell everybody:

"Ya call that a Phone?"
(then whip out the Galaxy Note 2 and shout: )

"HERE"S A PHONE!"

Got mine a few hours ago and have been tinkering non stop. There's definitely a learning curve coming from iOS, but I think I'll get a hang soon enough. My box seal was also open when I open the box from the mail. I can understand that they put the SIM in but why didn't they seal it back up. Odd.

Quick question for anyone who uses an Mac. What is a good program to download that'll allow me to access the internal SD card on the phone. Maybe i'm not using Kies properly, but there should be an easier way to transfer files directly.

If you plug your phone into the computer with a USB cable, it should just show up in whatever mac's version of "My Computer" is as a storage device (the phone) and a USB mass storage (the SD card)

Well - there's always the choice of simply removing the microSD card and placing it in a SD card adapter / USB reader and do File I/O directly to the card with a Mac.

But OSX Macs tend to leave their own very small "hidden" Index files on any FAT drive they touch.

That's how I assumed it would work, but it nots popping up.
