    I asked the online chat agent specifically "So orders will start shipping this week to arrive by Oct 29th"

    His answer "Yes"

    Keeping fingers crossed!

    Omg that's good news! I'm def getting super stoked to have this phone in my hand. Does anyone know if you don't preorder when it'll just be in stock at stores?

    The post by treb is 100% accurate. Pre orders start at midnight tonight and the official release date is November 29th. Its not a mistake and its not October 29th. Trust me folks.

    Does that make sense?

    If the device isn't available until Nov 29th, do we really need to preorder it? I don't envision these going off the shelves like iPhones given how polarizing the size is for people.

    can't I just go to a store in a month on the 29th???

    Not a chance! I will trust 12:01 much more. Everything else is just speculation.

    a one month preorder seems far fetched. While the Note 2 is going to be huge, it will only be huge with those who want a phone that large. I know many folks who have opted for the S3 even after hearing of this phone simply due to size.

    I will not believe a pre order tonight and ship on 11/29 until it is written by vzw themselves.

    The HTC DLX or whatever it will be called is already rumored for mid november. Why would they ship this phone AFTER a full 1080p HD 5" HTC phone is released.

    I agree, that seems odd. But then again, this is Verizon....

    This is true, but if it is true about that Nov 29th date, then Verizon is really making their customers happy (not)

    Wow, just wow

    So did they not make any comment on the timing of the 32 and 64 GB versions?

    I'm hearing very sad rumors that, at this time only the 16 is available in the US. That is NOT factual but all reports do seem to be pointing to it.

    I have two pcs one laptop and one Note 1 all running tweets, web searches on the event and nothing has come up about 32 and 64 GB versions being mentioned at the event or elsewhere for that matter. :mad:

    Really? That doesn't make sense either?

    Isn't that like the big elephant in the room? So they can talk about:

    1) carriers and availability
    2) colors
    3) memory sizes available

    It's 3 things!!!! Seriously?

    Just got off live chat with Verizon rep:
    "Please hold for a Support Representative to assist you.
    Thank you for contacting Verizon Wireless. My name is Tiffany, how may I assist you?
    Eric: Hi Tiffany, I see on your website that the Galaxy Note II pre-order is up. I was wondering when the device will be actually released?
    Tiffany: Hello Eric. I am glad to see that you are interested. We just got this information also. Let me take a look one moment please.
    Eric: Thank you!
    Tiffany: Thank you for your patience. I am showing that you can preorder on the 25th and the 29th will ship unless on back order.
    Eric: The 29th of October?
    Tiffany: Once you place the order you should get a ship date
    Tiffany: Yes
    Eric: And they will be available in stores that day as well?
    Tiffany: Yes
    Eric: And the pre-order goes live at midnight I asssume?
    Tiffany: Yes
    Eric: Thanks for all your help Tiffany =)
    Tiffany: You're welcome"

    tl;dr: preorder at midnight, shipping on the 29th of october

    That emoticon matches my face to the letter. I'm doing the same thing. Looking for anything to keep the fire of hope lit. Its feeling more and more like I'll be going at least another 30 days phoneless.

    With Samsung losing that patent suit today, you'd figure they'd be doing all they can to get as many of their devices into people's hands.

    This is all good, but once I hit preorder it asks if I'm a new or existing customer & then once I hit existing it goes no where ??

    Just amazed that my 2 screen shots are 5 minutes apart. The first one the rep has no idea of release info...the second screen shot is the preorder page. Too funny !!! Just wish it would work !!! The link that is.
