    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

    I carry a personal phone on my wife's AT&T account and my free Sprint phone. Until now I have used the excuse of being under contract on AT&T...we decided to just keep it. Grandfathered unlimited data and it helps me feed my addiction to phones.

    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. 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.

    Just talked to a Verizon CSR and he told me that the shipping date is now the 12th instead of the 10th.

    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.

    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.

    Still only fall release. I think they are distracted with "other" things

    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'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.

    I remeber it actually. I think it was with the htc evo lte or s3. But it happened on sprint for sure.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    anyone have any tmobile contacts who can verify/deny that tmobile already have the phones in store and will start selling on the global launch date of 09/26? people who preordered are saying that's their delivery date as well.
