General The wait. . . The wait is killing me!

Discussion in 'Android Devices' started by HanSolo, Sep 27, 2013.

  1. If it's any consolation, I had lunch with a friend who's a Verizon customer who's also got a Note 3 on pre-order. He called yesterday and got the same answers you did. Being the two largest carriers, it wouldn't surprise me if ours arrive within a day or two of one another.

    Finally my fear is that mine will arrive in the condition my S4 did.

    Looking new and well made
    Easy to setup to my preferences
    Trouble free in every way.

    > Then < what will I do? Ha... Ha... Ha :D

    Wanting to get one but if I want the Note 3 and the gear watch I'm going to need to sell the new Nokia 1020 I got for ATT. Windows is just not the platform for me so I'm thinking of trying the Note 3 and see. Had hoped Best Buys was going to have them last Friday like the said before so I guess another week to wait

    Just walked out of AT&T, played with a white model.

    I'm in love. Although I think black will be much sleeker.

    So thin and light, the screen is plenty bright, and it flies!!!

    11 days to go!!!

    I don't know if they are available to buy. But when I got there, I saw the display space for it with a Note 3 label, but no phone. I asked about it, and the guy told me he was just about to put it on display but that I could hold and see it before he did. So I was able to hold it without it being tethered to the display, and it is light!

    I didn't ask if it was for sale yet because I'm not on ATT.

    Wait a minute!!!

    I just got a call from Verizon fraud dept, asking me to confirm shipping address (I put down my work address because I don't trust my apartment complex office to actually hold the package for me or sign for it when it gets there).

    I asked him when this was shipping out to me, and he said that it was shipping out momentarily and that I should be getting an email tomorrow!!

    You are either about to make my day BIG TIME or you are perpetrating a very cruel prank on us Verizon folks...


    EDIT: I am really hoping that it's the former and that we're all getting out N3's way, way early!!!! :D

    Any word on your pre-order?

    Just called regarding mine (T-MOBILE),wish I had got the CSR that originally took care of my order (Denise,BTW,a very cool & capable/well-informed CSR),this one seemed a bit confused,will try again tomorrow.

    Anyway,the CSR that I spoke to today said that my credit card had already been charged (no sign of such,been ten days now).If that were the case,I'd say it's on the way,but,no other account activity on my credit card or T-MOBILE account indicates a phone has been shipped.

    If the status quo remains this time tomorrow,I'll CNX my order & pick-up locally.

    Oh please please please be telling the truth
     
  15. The Truth?

    Really?

    I rarely get excited since I live, breathe & work in the tech sector.

    But this... Note 3 launch has captivated me unlike any other. My anticipation only strengthened by the incredibly great S4 experience I'm having.

    These Galaxies put the iPhone 5S to shame.

    It's a stunning experience, thanks to Google & Samsung :D

    I also got Vuja De...lol I remember that epic GNex thread and contributing. My have we come a long ways from that cluster. I moved from Verizon to ATT as I could not stand Verizon's phone selection and updates anymore. ATT has been better than Verizon, I guess. I am looking forward to getting the GNote3 in a few days... device will be awesome.

    Chief, you know I would never prank you guys about this.

    Honestly that's what I was told. But everything still says the same thing on order page, no card charge yet.

    Ugh

    Yeah, my pre-order w/T-Mobile still shows a 9/20 (yes,that's September 20) shipping date.

    As you HanSolo,no charges deducted from my account, & of course, no GN3 in hand.

    I think that the fraud dept guy probably didn't even know what phone I ordered. I'm now thinking that he makes 1000 calls a day to confirm addresses when they're different from normal billing address, and it usually pops up for him to call.

    I'm thinking 10/9 at the earliest.

    I'm tempted to just cancel and go to the store myself, but then I think about the Verizon employees putting their grubby paws all over my phone and updating firmware/setting up Google account, not to mention the 1 hour for them to activate it while they throw it around on their table waiting for it to activate.

    I'll just wait for delivery. . . . :eek:

    Not to mention that moment when you actually open the box YOURSELF.

    And just like the Verizon commercial (the one that my 7 year old daughter says, "look daddy, that's just like you") where the dude is opening his phone box and the heavens are shining out of it, that's what I want. Not some clown finger banging my brand new device.

  21. I have it on good authority that AT&T has a huge number of phones to cover all current pre-orders.

    Therefore all of us who have confirmed Note 3 orders will be receiving our phones soon.

    In other news, iPhone 5S models are on a 46 day backorder as of last hour (true)

    It's Great to be a Samsung customer :D
