I am trying to figure out why it is so much inconsistency surronding the ship date of the GS9/9+. Samsung said "guaranteed delivery by 3/14" prior to pre-ordering. I have spoken with several Samsung reps that have given inconsistent information. I have heard "Guaranteed ship by 3/14", "Guaranteed delivery by 3/14", "It will be delivered prior to the 14th." Also, I don't understand why some countries will get there's by the 8th or 9th when they pre-ordered on the same date as other countries. That's unfair. I feel as if "ship by the 14th" is a rip off because I would get it by the 16th when the phone is released to the world. So I payed my money early for what reason?Not to mention there were no free incentives this time around.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey folks, I'm glad to see that so many of you are posting here. However, this thread has gone wildly off topic in a few different directions.

I pre-ordered from T-Mobile. Samsung is shipping pre-orders out a week before release. So most carriers in the U.S. will ship them a week early. I know T-Mobile usually ships them out as early as they get inventory. I paid for 2 day shipping, so since Samsung said they'd ship a week before, I expect them to ship the 8th or 9th.
With tmobile if you pre-ordered you should've gotten free overnight shipping. I preordered also. I just received an email saying my order has shipped. So im expecting it by Monday March 12 or 13.
I ordered on Samsung.com and the tracking says its coming tuesday! yeaaa meeeeee! I ordered around 5pm Mar .02
update: my bad the tracking is for my charger (that I purchase with the phone) not the phone :'(
I agree, so far Samsung is delivering on what they promised. They will ship Monday to arrive on Wednesday. That's exactly what I was told when I pre ordered, unless that changes I am happy.... I have my accessories here waiting, nice braided usb cords, 200gb cards, zagg curved elite screen protectors and speck and Samsung cases!!!!
I do wish however they offered 128gb or 256gb variants here in the us or a way to buy the international version through Samsung and deliver them here.
