    I was told a couple days ago by s.c.s. that the phones would ship out on the 21st and people would receive them on the 22nd and 23rd.......its starting to look like thats what's going to happen.

    I don't think CS knows what they're talking about half the time. Look back through this thread. We have like a dozen different answers on receipt of this phone. I don't get it, Sprint initially said the 21st. I don't know what is going on anymore, but I'm starting to get aggrivated. I just want an answer for sure.

    I read on a blog yesterday and as of right now the first Batch of pre orders are scheduled to be delivered on the 21st. I have no idea what defines a batch or what the stipulations so sorry cant help there. The in store launch date is still scheduled to be Thursday. nothing with that has changed. I might make a few people mad when I say this but pre ordering a phone does not always mean your going to get it before its released in a store. It just means you are guaranteed a phone once it launches and you don't have to go to a store to get one.

    Yesterday I was told by Account Services that the in store launch date of 6/21 is still on track as scheduled, they couldn't confirm preorder ship dates however.

    Ya pre-order ship dates get a little tricky depending on when you ordered and were you fell in the que. Those who ordered first are designed by the system to get there phone first. I just posted an article in the Verizon thread of how it used work when I was with IPCS and Verizon. Now i am not sure if sprint still uses this method because its not really part of the Store Retail World. I do know that if anyone does get a phone before the 21st you can not activate it in a store until the 21st. They have to call customer service. So maybe that's a sign?

    The official Samsung announcement is tomorrow. I'm sure we'll have some definitive answers by then.

    Okay so I have the latest info on the phones, so as of right now we're actually waiting on UPS to assign tracking numbers to each device in the warehouse (which could take some time). And we should receive our tracking number today as well. So we're just going to need a little patience.

    The ones that do ship today will arrive on the 21st correct? 2nd day shipping?

    I would assume so. I pre-ordered on the 5th, so I should be in the first bunch. If/when I get my tracking number, I'll verify.

    I am not getting excited until either mine changes and shows a tracking number or someone posts a pic for theirs. On the Sprint forums people claim to have numbers already and when asked for pics they are not around.

    To much speculation and guessing on this to get excited until I see actually see something.

    Most likely the phones will ship starting tomorrow. With the Australian markets they went on sale within in an hour of the presentation.

    No wonder the reps are being so confident about us receiving the phone by 6/21 for sure today.

    Did anyone here order their phone on or after the 12th?

    Don't take this the wrong way, because I do appreciate the info, but many people who have a connection have given wrong info. Even so, please keep sharing any new info you get.
