    I pre-ordered through Verizon. They hinted, but did not promise, that my phone could be delivered 2-3 days before the March 11 launch. Anyone have any info about this? Past experience with pre-orders?

    Also, will they deliver it to my home even if no one is there to sign? They wouldn't let me change my delivery address to my office.

    Don't hold your breath, but, it is not at all unusual for the carriers to deliver the product before the scheduled date. I got my Galaxy S6 edge from AT&T about four days before the scheduled date. To some extent it is a function of first-come first-served based on your order date and time with the carrier.


    As far as delivery when no one is home, a signed note to the carrier with the tracking number included has worked for me many times. The carrier will have already notified you with the appropriate information as soon as they have shipped the product.

    Update: according to AT&T my estimated ship date for the Galaxy S7 edge is March 7. I suspect most other carriers would have similar, early ship dates.

    Verizon ships through FedEx and they do have the signature policy so if no adult is there they won't leave it. Also, Verizon can change the shipping address, they call it an ITTS ticket. If they're ready to ship to you, they won't wait until March 11, they'll just ship it.

    Any way to set it up ahead of time to leave it without a signature?

    I'll tell you what has worked for me (no guarantees).

    I leave a note pinned to the door with the shipping, order number etc. information and a signed statement indicating to the carrier that I am giving permission for the package to be left at my door. It has always worked for me. Obviously, this is dangerous if you live in an apartment
    or a relatively unsecure area.

    Another alternative is to call the carriers local office and have them hang on to the package so that you can pick it up yourself.

    I, unfortunately, had to cancel my pre-order and then place it a second time due to having to switch around the contract to make it work properly. Guess that puts me further behind in the shipping order. Oh well, a few days later won't be the end of the world. I'm on verizon so there's not promise they will ship early like t-mobile anyways.
