I have heard Samsung previously shipping pre-orders earlier then release date.
When you guys think we will start receiving ours?

Launch day is 21st August (certainly in the UK and US) they usually ship by courier the previous day, so expect a tracking number on the 20th.

Samsung used to release it a day earlier (and a week earlier in the distant past) if you ordered direct from them, but I haven't seen this being the case for a long time now.

In the USA, they use FedEx. If you create a FedEx account you can monitor inbound shipments.
Usually, you will find these pending well ahead of release. Accessories are usually 1 pound and the phone 2 pounds.


Also when reserving with a credit card there is usually a hold upon preordering. Make sure you see this AND check your order status within 24 hours. If the card rejects the hold for any reason, (Samsung) will CANCEL your order. This happened to me because I used an expired card. (duh) I did not check to find the order CANCELED until a few days later and the shipping date slipped. This was the S20 Ultra. I don't think these phones are going to sell out that fast (or at all) you know with what's going on in the world, right? ;)


In any case, usually these FedEx shipments show up early. Typically they will start moving right around when the charge is placed on the card. When a shipper creates a shipment in their system and it posts to FedEx you will see it even though no package has been shipped. It just shows something is going on with your order. Sometimes you will see several tracking numbers with some getting canceled. Perfectly normal.


I suspect some activity by mid week (this week) and movement by the time next weekend is over. Some may get theirs a day or two early.


Apple likes to troll users by handing packages off to the courier with instructions NOT to deliver before (release date). So you see it scheduled for delivery on a Tuesday (release day Friday in this example) and when Tuesday comes the tracking is updated with instructions to hold until Friday. I hate that!

My LED wallet case already shipped and is supposed to arrive today. I had a pending charge on my CC that disappeared yesterday. I called CS and was told the order is still moving forward, but I am checking Order Status on Sammy's website every day. I'll probably see the charge back on the CC before I get the FedEx shipping notice.

i received a shipping notice from FedEx on 8/11, with an expected shipping date and delivery date of Aug 17 and Aug 19, respectively. FYI, i verified this notice is tied to my pre-order number issued by Samsung. All of this is subject to change until the device is physically shipped. (the Samsung shipping location is 8.5 miles and 16 minutes from my home. :). in the past, items from that location have arrived next day and other 2 days later).

FedEx says ship 17th, arrival on 19th. From past experience, how accurate is that? I need to juggle my schedule round to WFH that day in order to sign for the phone. Just want to make sure that will indeed be THE day before I go to the trouble! (shipping from TX, am in PA, if it matters)

You can redirect pickup to work or other places like Walgreens.

I've done that with Walgreens before, just stop by, show ID and they pull it out of a locker and had it to you.
Takes the guessing game out of it and when you get home you have it in hand.

For T-mobile I have pre-ordered the S series phone and this is the first note. Typically we would see cards charged Thirsday the week before release. Then Friday and Saturday they stage for shipping and let phones go to UPS on Monday. Sometimes I would get delivery on Tuesday but usually would be Wednesday before release. There shipping facility is out of Kentucky and you can pretty much map the route using flight aware to determine what flight it will take.

Just got my watch 3 delivered. I still won't be home till next weekend. Phone still shows estimated ship on 17th with delivery on 19th. Based on weight (4lbs) I am thinking the buds live, case, and UV sanitizer are with it as well.

My Ultra 5G will be delivered on or before the 29th of August 2020 as per my telco provider. This will be my second version of the Note and my second time using a Samsung mobile phone. My last Galaxy Notes were the Note 2.
