    I've never done a T-Mobile pre-order before, so I haven't experienced the early shipments that I've seen talked about on past flagship phone orders, but I do remember being very envious of many T-Mobile customers that would get their devices a few days prior to the official release date. Considering that it's overnight shipping, I'm fine if I don't hear/receive any confirmation until the 18th. While I'd love to be lumped into the early shipment crowd, I just need to get it before I leave out of town.

    Looking at my tracking info, it was updated today, for a second time saying "picked up, future delivery requested". So now my delivery date has changed from the 18th to the 19th.
    Whats the big deal to verizon if customers get this in their hands 1 day early? Kind of annoying.

    I'm guessing that since it's VZW and TMOBILE, that Samsung is the issue...

    Yep, it sure looks as if Samsung clamped down on the carriers. My UPS tracking info still shows "Order Processed: Ready for UPS." The service is UPS Next Day Air so I'm guessing that T-Mobile will deliver the phones to UPS on Thursday.

    Verizon posted my FedEx tracking number! Delivery expected by 4:30pm, 8/19/2016. Maybe I'll get lucky and get it a day sooner? Who knows.

    Tmoblie had my tracking number listed on Sunday and charged me on Friday. UPS still hasn't received my package. I'm thinking we won't get them tell Friday.

    I don't really care, but it'll be interesting to see if someone tries for a class action lawsuit because, if I'm correct, TMOBILE isn't supposed to charge until the phone ships.

    I'm pretty sure people are seeing the authorization and not a charge posted to their account, which is what most places do now (like Amazon). They don't charge you until they ship, but they can get an authorization and as long as it doesn't post to the account, there is no charge.

    Unknown. Previous VZW Tech Support for 7 years.
    Launch is 08/19 (Friday). Why would anybody reasonably expect it 2-3 days BEFORE that? 1 day, perhaps, but 2 or 3???? :thinking:

    The customize delivery options finally popped up on the FedEx site for mine only to find that all options are grayed out per Verizon's instructions. I have to wait until after they have attempted delivery and found no one home before I can say to leave it at the FedEx office! Some of us work during the day, Verizon!

    an indirect signature is required, which means, you dont have to be there. If you have a safe place somewhere outside your house where it will stay dry, and people wont see the package, you can leave a note taped to your front door stating "FedEx, please accept this as my signature,..." and sign your name. Also tell them where youd like them to leave it, if not right there.
    They should leave it for you.

    so, Ive had my tracking number since Sunday night. Since then, they have tortured me as I have watched my phone get passed back and forth between fedex a Linwood PA, and West Chester PA.
    This morning, rather than saying "held for pickup, future delivery requested", it finally says, shipping info received.
    Ladies and gentlemen, I believe my phone is about to start moving.

    And although my delivery date says 19th, I live in PA, so I still have some hope I might receive it tomorrow.

    First, they have done this before. Secondly, I'm pretty sure the agreement says that they will not charge until the item ships, and the card got charged on Sunday. Lastly, received a shipping confirmation on Sunday showing Monday as the expected delivery date.

    Same for me. My phone has been to 3 locations, but stuck in Linwood for 2 days. They did change the tracking info to "shipping info received" which means they will probably get it moving late today to get here sometime on Friday. I live in Montana so it will take 2 days to get here. I will be pissed if they don't get it here by Friday after purposefully holding it since sunday.

    Mine says it has departed the FedEx location in Memphis as of 2:45 this afternoon. I got the note on the front door already just in case it gets here tomorrow. Not that I really expect it but better to be prepared.

    Haha...mine hasn't shipped either. Same status on UPS. Looks like Samsung might have put the lockdown on early shipments...lol

    As of 7:25 PM tonight mine says it's at the destination sort facility in Birmingham. Some of them are moving. Any other Verizon folks watching?
