I ordered a gray and pink 256mb flip 3s on 8/13. A few weeks ago got an email stating a 30 day delay which I read was more that the phones haven't shipped yet and its been 30 days.

My estimated delivery has always been 9/21. Well I just got a new email stating phones are delayed with no new shipping date available. My 9/21 date is now gone from my app and only shows order date of 8/13.

Anyone else get delayed? I kind of wish I got the black and just skinned it to change up colors.
 
A 30 day delay could mean the beginning of October (~ 10/8). Typically, they mean business days.

The release was 8/27, so the actual order date only matters for your place in line when they become available. The estimate also relies on every shipment being as large or larger than predicted.

Realistically, I ordered a (whatever) white Note 20 Ultra that looked really nice the whole four times I saw it without a case. One of those times was when taking it to be repaired because the adhesive under the glass magically began to peel and the other was when I sent it in for a trade-in. I got black this time.

I ordered mine on the 16/9, and it arrived on 17/9... I didn't even know stock shortages were a thing for this phone.

Of course they added the 'free watch' offer on the 17th, so I'm now having to go through the process of returning this day-old phone and ordering a new on just so I can get the offer, and there's probably going to be a shortage now..

I'm in Egypt. I ordered my phone from Samsung on 15/08 and was supposed to be delivered by the 7th of September. My phone was delayed for a week, then, Samsung decided to ship the phone without the gift leather case and without the 1-year accidental screen damage replacement card.

They sent an email stating that the gifts will be delayed for two weeks, however I received my phone yesterday.

What carrier was offering the free watch?

Well...2day via fedex is a bust. "Potentially delayed" and stuck at the local fedex about an hour away...was suppose to arrive yesterday, no new delivery date posted. Samsung did offer an additional 5% off order once it delivers so that is good.

I've had 10 delays from this same fedex in the past, one being a month long fiasco. So I am not expecting my flip 3's anytime soon.

Worst case scenario I will just pick up the black flips at best buy or tmobile next week and call it a day.
