Default Samsung Galaxy S4 Shipping Status Thread

(Borrowed this idea from the HTC One forum)

Here's my status:

Black Mist Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB Vodafone UK

DATE ORDERED:05/04/2013
CURRENT STATUS: Estimated Delivery: Friday, 26 Apr 2013 Subject to confirmation.

OTHER: Samsung announced official UK launch date has now moved to 27th April, Vodafone (atm) have said they are still shipping 26th as they haven't had any official word from Samsung.

What about everyone else?

Status: Thanks for pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB. You are one step closer to getting your phone. Keep an eye out for a shipping email with your tracking information. We will do our best to get it to you on or before Saturday, April 27. For questions, visit sprint.com/preorder. Since we will be processing many pre-orders so quickly, your tracking number takes a little longer to get to you than normal. Do not worry. Your tracking email may come as late as Friday, 4/26 when your phone is already on its way to your door. Thanks for your patience.

It's reported here http://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/news/2013/04/samsung_galaxy_s4_uk_release_date_confirmed/ that although it's officially released in the UK on the 27th,some retailers and networks should be able to deliver on the 26th

I have preordered 3 times from the Sprint website and all 3 times the phones came on the actual day stated. I have heard of a few getting theirs sooner but I would not count on it.

Releasing a phone on a Saturday seems like a stupid idea to me especially for those preordered their phone via website. Anyone had any experience using Carphone Warehouse for preorders? I really hope I'm not waiting now until the Monday seeing how a lot of couriers don't even deliver on a Saturday.

Well I decided to pre order in store. I paid $50 for a gift card and they will hold a phone for me and I can go in on the 27th and pay for it. I just hope they get it in early like perhaps on friday the 26th .

Sold out on Sprint already, not even 2 days.

Pre-order sold out! Our Samsung Galaxy SŪ 4 pre-order inventory has been spoken for. Check back on 4/27 for the national launch.

Yeah, well while all you people have your shiny new phones, US Verizon people like me will have an entire month to get an even better product, since more time to get the bugs out..... More bloat too! Are there any bars open yet?

I don't have a shipping status here in the US yet but I notice on my AT&T preorder online that the phone is listed as:

Samsung I337 BLK 16GB PHONE

Do other people who pre-ordered with AT&T see the same thing?

Now, I notice on the AT&T premiere site, it shows my same pre-order with the following description:

Samsung Galaxy S(R) 4 (Black Mist)


I swear, that first model number looks like some hacker is playing a joke with me by writing 'l337 blk phone'... because I'm pretty sure that is not the model number, right? lol

Looks like they are starting to ship. AT&T has begun sending out emails.

Dear Valued AT&T Customer,

Thank you for ordering the Samsung Galaxy SŪ 4 from AT&T. We are excited to announce that we are able to ship devices earlier than originally expected. Customers who preordered their smartphone early can begin receiving it as soon as April 25th.

You should expect to receive an Order Confirmation email with your shipment tracking number as soon as your order has been shipped.

AT&T is committed to outstanding customer service and we hope you are as delighted with this good news as we are to be sharing it with you.

Sincerely,

AT&T

I just got this too... I hope it isn't an error. On the other hand, I was hoping to get some accessories before the phone gets here.

I put my pre-order in the day it started too. Hopefully, since I got the same email you guys received, it will show up in the store on Thursday. I had them set it up to ship to the corporate store that I bought it at since there's other phones I have to activate as well.

I am with Sprint and a Sat date is fine with me. If mine came on a Thurday I would end up taking off Friday as I would be up so late fooling with it and transferring everything over.

Good luck and I hope you get yours soon.

I just got an email from Amazon to say that there is a delay for dispatch for the S4 and will not be able to deliver on my original delivery date of the 26th April.
Instead it stated that delivery would 27th April.

Going from these dates it just looks like there releasing the same day as most.

So how it will be delivered on the same day its released I have no idea.

Thus, not expecting it until Monday or Tuesday

I got the same - to be received on Thursday from ATT!

Thing is, though - I'm prob the only one hoping that my case comes in the mail first 'cos I was hoping not to use it until I had a case.

Now it looks like the FedEx package won't be delivered until 7 PM Thursday evening. At least, that's what the FedEx package tracking web site says. Too bad the store is closed at that hour.

Left Fort Worth, TX at around 11:30 AM. It's got to get all the way up to Ohio. And that's a lot of ground to cover for a semi-truck.

And here I am, scheduling an in-store appointment to activate the device and it may not even be there until the next day.

From my experience with online retailers in the UK, they only update preorder status once they're shipped. I'd be very surprised if they provided you with a tracking number already and if they did, would most likely mean they're just getting the items ready to send out in a big batch on Thursday. Try it Thursday evening after 6pm, should work then.

Try it Thursday evening after 6pm, should work then.
If you got a tracking number then it simply means they have created the shipment online and printed the sheet of paper. The tracking number will become available online once the carrier actually picked up the delivery and scanned it in first time.

Just had a text from three UK saying that they cant deliever the 26th now and are working with samsung to get them by the 3rd May. I phoned up to ask why and was told that the every carrier in the UK was the same and the release date for UK is now 3rd May.
Anyone know anymore about this?

Could it just be that Three are behind the other networks? I preordered the first day the phone was made available and on all the websites I checked, the three network wasn't initially on the list and was added at a later date.

I think the supply of the S4 is going to be bad for a while. Considering the usual choke point is the higher storage versions, out of the gate the 16GB ones are constrained. As a result, not looking good for 32GB versions, it seems.

The fact that I work for FedEx does not color my opinion of those Brown guys at all!

Got my tracking number today. Delivery tomorrow by 3pm. Go Purple!

Default Phone shipped, haven't been billed.

They shipped my phone yesterday morning but as of yet my credit card has not been charged. Anyone else with their phone shipped not been charged yet?

My AT&T bill does have the activation fee on it already though.

I pre-ordered through AT&T and was pleasantly surprised when a April 30 ship date became an April 23 ship date. Especially since I am sporting a HTC One X with a cracked screen
