It's this time of the year again. Many of us are ordering new phones, and per the tradition, I'm starting a Shipping Tracking thread. Having shipping info and delivery estimates helps us all get an idea on when to expect our devices based on carriers and models, and other people's orders.
So, if you have already pre-ordered one, please go ahead and post the following information:
- Model / Color
- Carrier (or Unlocked?)
- Order Date
- Ordered From
- Estimated Delivery Date
- Comments (if Any)
(And once it ships, please post again with the same information as above, plus the actual scheduled delivery date and a shipping company/carrier)
Here is mine:
- Note20 / Mystic Green
- Ordered on 8/10/20
- Ordered from att.com
- Estimated to be delivered by August 21
- I ordered from AT&T because of a great $1000 off deal with trade in, usually order directly from Samsung (as we usually get phones delivered a day or two earlier from Samsung)
What: Mystic White 128 gb ATT Note 20 Ultra
Traded In: Mint Condition Black Note 9 for $550 off
With Free Stuff: White Galaxy Buds Live "Beans" and useless 45w brick charger (for my Note 10+ Aura Glow from last years pre order) and now the charger is no longer an option as a free item
Ordered: 08/06/20 at 8:30AM after trying since midnight to get my order to go in (trying to push the order through on mobile was hard when it wouldnt display the terms and conditions to "accept" and move on... had to trick it finally)
Others: Proud pre ordered note owner of every series since the Note 2 and won't use anything else (I have owned iPhones too and hated them)
Current Status: "Ordered" with ETA ship date of 08/19 and delivery date of 08/21
Also sad they didn't give more color options in the 512gb option, had it been anything but just boring predictable black, I would've bought it
Still have several notes that I've kept because they were paid for and Note 10+ in Aura Glow (I'm dumbfounded they didn't continue this color... best color they ever had on a phone period IMO... much better than the predictable matte or gloss traditional colors expected) and tons of freebies from pre orders over the years... my entire Eco System is Samsung Android including the Virtual Reality which I still love
Angry the Note 20 Ultra DOES NOT come with a set of wired headphones
Although I've been told if you complain they will send you a pair
Props to iPhones for having consistently better colors on upcoming devices (I would LOVE a refreshing yellow or red option with Samsung but for some reason they hate color unless its girly as all get out like lavender or pink aka Rose Gold aka Bronze). Listen Samsung, I AM A GIRL and I hate these colors. Not everyone wants dainty, girly looking mess. My cars are very masculine because they're mean, my guns are very masculine (I would die before I would own a pink gun) and I want my phones to be just as masculine and mean looking. Not look like some girl in high school got to choose the color options... I was over that nonsense 10+ years ago... MOVE ON AND GIVE ME COLOR
Also here's what I've noticed with Samsung trends... they will get discouraged with bad sales on one phone and come up with some amazing ideas for the next version and blow everyone out of the water with that upgrade. And then.... sit on it. The following version is back to one upping the previous version with no real update other than a new name and updated housing. Then sales and reviews are dismal again and its back to the drawing board for the next update to smash it again. Take a "Note" from the past (haha see what I did there?) and just continue assuming you'll fail and keep staying on the cutting edge of innovative. What you do best. Stop getting complacent. I feel like the Note 20 is complacency and the Ultra is a small step up from the 10+. I expected more for the Note 20 considering you jumped the name 10 versions as if its so radical its from the future.... underwhelmed. Especially considering the cutbacks like missing wired headphones, no compatibility with the 45w charger brick, lesser battery, lesser processor, lesser storage unless expanded, etc yet the price tag isn't lesser
CANCEL BUTTON DISAPPEARED THIS MORNING 08/11
Good start everyone!
It's interesting to see the Cancel button disappearing so early into the process... usually we see it around the weekend right before the launch.
@pacpod Good call on that UV Sanitizer! I'm actually planning on getting one too. I don't want to apply any harsh chemicals to my phone, like Clorox, but I do want to be able to sanitize it after trips to stores and things like that, so it's a very nice accessory to have during these crazy times! I have to wait until we get the phone to claim the preorder bonus credit, but once I get that, I'm planning on ordering the power bundle with the US Sanitizer, extra charger, 3.5mm Jack adapter, Qi Power bank, and wireless fast charger.
