Has anyone who pre ordered through T-Mobile with the backorder gotten their phone shipped or received shipping info yet?

I pre ordered kind of late on August 24th, and got notified that it would be backordered with a delivery date of 9/16-10/7, but I'm worried that the shipping estimate may actually end up being in October.

I am on T-Mobile as well, but I ordered through Samsung direct and mine was supposed to be here on 09/14, but it slipped to 09/21 and it looks like it is going to slip again as it has not shipped yet.

I wonder if buying the Unlocked one would have been faster?
Yeah I thought about going the unlocked route as well, but after seeing the issues with activation some people were having I backed off of it. Hopefully we'll get ours before October.

The answer is yes. I ordered unlocked through Samsung on 4SEP (USA, 256GB, Black), and mine will be delivered tomorrow.

I ordered two ZF3s about two weeks ago. My T-Mobile order status still says its being processed with a ship date of 9/9-9/13. I wonder when it will ACTUALLY ship.

Smh. I spoke with one of the Tmobile reps on Twitter, and they told me the same thing that shows on my account - estimated delivery date of 9/17 to 10/7. T-Mobile has been dropping the ball on pre orders for the last few years.

Disagree. Last few years? T-Mobile almost always has my annual preorders delivered to me before Samsung's official release dates. This year I got the Watch4 Classic nearly a week before release and the ZF3 on the day of release.

Yikes, glad I never ordered through T-Mobile. The trade in deals were tough to pass up, but I'm not on a Magenta plan so I didn't get the full benefits. Hopefully you guys get yours soon.

I ordered mine from T-Mobile yesterday (19 September) and they told me that it would ship between 27 October and 11 November. I HAVE TO WAIT OVER A MONTH FOR IT TO SHIP!!!!

Ugh. I might just cancel and buy one elsewhere. The only reason I was getting it through T-Mobile was their $1k trade in but the way it works being stretched over 3 years really sucks.

    I didn't pre-order due to another issue. I did order on the 2nd and received mine on the 3rd. I got phantom black 256 GB. I know the other colors where on backorder.

    I just got off the phone with Samsung, it looks like it will be here on or around the 21st (not telling with FedEx (I HATE FEDEX))...
