"Processing" has been around for a while as far as I know.
I'm rather Annoyed if they do use Fedex
I expect a shipping delay and it will leave AT&T Shipping center in Texas by Thursday Nov 8 - of course they will ship it Fedex Home - for a Saturday Delivery - but because i live in an industrial area of town - Fedex Home will claim (attempt made, but occupant not there) when in fact Fedex Home Never delivers to my neighborhood on Saturdays.
Of course Fedex Home does not work on Mondays - so at best I think its a least a week away from being delivered.
FedEx is excellent in my area (NJ). They deliver packages 6 days of the week and they usually deliver to me at like 9am. I hope it's FedEx and not UPS.
Fedex Truly is terrible here where i am (Central California Coast)
UPS is superior out here.
Of course I live a block away from the UPS depot, while the local Fedex Depot is 40 miles away.
If a sender is emphatic about sending something to me via FEDEX - the local regional routing center always converts my packages to the Fedex Home Delivery system - which is run by franchised individuals using their own van - once had a Fedex Home driver give me an Amway products sales pitch before he would deliver my package
FedEx is terrible. 2nd day delivery from that part of TX to my home is always next day from UPS. Not true with FedEx it takes at least 2 days if my package is not "rescheduled".
I suggest anyone interested in this thread to check the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 delivery thread here:
Heard Galaxy Note II is starting to ship Monday! - AT&T Community Support
and this conflicting info
Also I will repost this message with good info from another buyer with prior experience using AT&T Pre-order
Must be patient!
anyone know if these deliveries are signature required?
Yes - Indeed - I believe this to be true
On a $300 phone? I'd sure as hell hope so.
Order on 10/24 10:30pm cst.
Processing - pending shipment.
Will post the rest when it happens.
Lisa: I have located your order.
Lisa: Your device has been ordered during a special pre-order event. Pre-ordered devices are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. We will notify you by e-mail when your device has shipped from our warehouse.
Me: Have other orders for Note 2 have begun being shipped?
Lisa: Pre-orders have just begun shipping today.
You really pre-ordered on 10/24? From what I understand pre-orders started on 10/25.
Yep AT&T order went live earlier than the 25th. By a couple hours but still early.
I expect we will get our shipped emails tonight late.
I hope it isn't late like others have been. I like to know when I'm expecting a package so I can make sure somebody will be around to sign for it
I don't know if it's sig required or not. I pre ordered iPhone 5 and they dropped it off on my front door step.
Pre-Ordered on 10-25. 8:25 AM CST
Still in processing mode. My initial hold has dropped off as well. That's frustrating. Didn't have enough money to cover the new charge -- luckily i caught it and transferred some cash into my account before the second charge hit.
So your second charge has hit?
Shipment of the Note 2 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
Election day is a bad day to begin a new product shipment - with mandatory time off to vote enforced at many companies.
Customer service reps...They are so clueless.
Very true! - part of the reason I decided to order the phone upgrade online myself so I could review and assess all my options, and maintain my unlimited data plan.
No news yet from anyone huh? I chatted online with a rep regarding my shipping status and she said it's first come first serve for pre-orders. I ordered mine 9:00 PM PST on 10/25. She said that from what she sees for my order that it will not ship out today. I asked her when does it say it will ship out then and she says she doesn't have that information. I'm going to ignore her statement...blah
Heard Galaxy Note II is starting to ship Monday! - Page 2 - AT&T Community Support
This is good news. Thanks.
EDIT: Here is the response I got...
Gabriela: Yes. I see your preorder. The device is expected to ship out today. At the moment there is no shipment status on the order. Please allow for another 24 to 48 hours for the shipping status to be updated.
Ken: So if I got overnight shipping I may get it before the release date on the 9th, like tomorrow?
