I've seen September 25th and October 1st.

Do you have any site that says October 1st?

Well, more specifically for the US, ATT is scheduled to ship phones around 10/1 and Verizon around 10/11.

T-Mobile I think was said to be around 10/2.

Sprint hasn't said anything of significance, except "sometime in fall."

I'm with TMobile. So do I have to pay full price or do I just put down money and have a charge on my bill every month?

Also, what does pre-ordering do? Do they mail me the phone or do I pick it up in store? Should Ippre-order or just go that morning to the store?

All i get from the t-mobile main site after i logged in is a 703.99 full retail price. However on the t-mobile Note 3 pre-registration page the info is 199 Down + 21 per month for 24 months. You awant to pre-register because you might win one. I've always gone to a t-mobile store to gett my phones so I have no idea about pre-ordering.

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.

Usually you will get it a day or two before anyone else if you pre-order it. They try to time it to arrive on release day, but they will often overestimate the shipping time and you will get it before most others.

Not that I'm aware of yet, but Engadget has good info on it:
T-Mobile to launch Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Gear on October 2nd

And here's the direct link they posted that allows you to sign up to be notified, when it's available.

I tried signing up for the notification but it wouldn't go through.

How much can I sell my Note 2 for? It's in mint condition and I am including a few cases for it. I also have the original box, manual, etc.

We might get it earlier, it's cleared FCC!

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Release Date Clearing Final Hurdles

Come on, Verizon - first week of October!

@Rob: check Swappa. You can sell it or at least get a good idea of the price there

Swappa is a site JUST for Android devices. I have used them several times with great success and no problems at all. I'll vouch for it

I think it's a percentage of the sale, of course they need to keep the site operating. But they have high standards of integrity and I like them. Check the selling info to find out the specific fees, though.

At one time this was very true. Pre-orders made everybody giddy merely because we got phones before they actually launched in store.
Going back several phone releases this hasn't been the case. People who pre-ordered started receiving their phones after the launch date.
I actually look forward to the in-store launch. Pre-ordering would cause me to have a stroke.

I too would like to know this. I can tell you that Verizon will give you $60 for it. The rep who took my pre-order via the edge program quoted me $60

Speaking of...I need to update my list

Since employment @ Sprint..
Note 1, Evo LTE, S3, Viper, Note 2, HTC One, S4 and somewhere in there we got a Note 10.1

Waiting on my Note 3 and my Moto X and will most likely stick with those for a while.


FYI..best buy is showing $262 trade in for the Note 2 and HTC one. Fortunately I got $325 for my Sprint Note 2 on craigslist. My HTC One is listed for $390 but worst case is also $262 at best buy.

Check Gamestop too.

I was told by the ATT store today that preorders would arrive by the 3rd

Yup. That's y I need your confirmation regarding 64gb and release date for Sprint, so I can bring the Note 2 into best buy and get my trade-in plus on top of the best buy trade-in (although I will likely get the 250, not the perfect condition price). Already looking at getting ebay backup sprint phone.

You can get $210 for an AT&T Note II in flawless condition from Gazelle.com

Have dealt with them before and they are great.

12th for orders placed now. If you ordered before yesterday then you should still receive it by the 10th.

I went into the Vodafone store in Oxford Street London, their UK flagship store, and they hadn't even heard of the Note 3, let alone know when it would be released...

Good work, Vodafone, good work...

I still haven't yet heard what time on September 25 I can pick up my Note 3. OK that was unnecessary.

Good work, Vodafone, good work...
Judging from my exchanges with them, Otterbox haven't heard of it either.

Any news for Sprint?

The local guys don't have a comment at all. I can wait a few months but sooner or later I'm going to get really angry. lol

So no official release date for Sprint?
Part of me wants to hold out--the other part wants it on launch day.

Yeah, with the new confusing upgrade plans and pending iPhone release, I'm not surprised.

My guess is that the Sprint Note 3 releases 1 year to date from last year's release. Perfect way for Sprint to pitch/up sell the new upgrade plan. So 10/25 would be my educated guess.

I was at best buy yesterday and preordered an AT&T Note 3. They told me 10/2. In California for those wondering.

I actually look forward to the in-store launch. Pre-ordering would cause me to have a stroke.
I'm not sure where you're getting your info. I got my Note 2 early and my wife got her S4 early. As a matter of fact, if you google "Galaxy S4 shipping early" or "iPhone 4s shipping early" or "galaxy note 2 shipping early" you'll see news reports for each of those devices shipping 5 to 14 days prior to the announced ship dates.

Wrote this up in the Sprint forum, so wanted to post here for those that don't go in there.

Because of TS posting that article, I went into Best Buy to speak to the Samsung Experience guys, since they are actually Samsung employees. I asked 2 questions 1) Do they know when Sprint is releasing and 2) Will they offer the 64gb version.

Answers
1) No, not the definitive date, but I suspect it'll be sometime in 1st week of October.

Follow up question, by me:
So, you don't think it'll be pushed back to later in the month?

Answer: No, everyone should be releasing around the same time.

2) Unfortunately, only the 32 is the version that seems everyone will be offering. I don't know definitively, but all signs point to all carriers only offering the 32gb version.

Follow up question by me:
I was hoping that since Sprint was being so quiet, that might be a sign they might offer the 64. So you don't think that might be a remote possibility?

Answer:
No, I wish I could say that was the case, but it doesn't really appear that anyone in the US will offer the 64 and the 64 will only be for the International unlocked.

I'm paraphrasing and as always, take that info with a grain of salt, but even though I'm slightly disappointed to hear no 64, I was encouraged to hear 1st week of October.

That means only a couple weaks back on the photon, instead of 1 month.

So does that mean it might be released in store early? This is the first phone I have been excited about in a while.
