Hi everyone, with almost every new major device release, we like to have one of these Pre-Order and Tracking threads going. Completely optional, of course, but people seem to like to keep the dates and order details in one place, so we can all get a better idea of what and when to expect.

Usually, we try to include the following information:

- Date ordered

- Where did you order from (samsung.com, carrier, retailer, etc.)

- Model, storage capacity, Color

- You can share your trade-in if you want

- Estimated delivery date

Then, once it ships, please come back and post an update with the same information above, but the actual stated shipping and delivery dates, and maybe even let us know once it's received. 

The thing is, as we all know, some popular items can start seeing their dates pushed back as they continue to receive pre-orders, plus, Samsung usually delivers their pre-orders a couple of days earlier than stated, and some carriers do too, so keeping track of this kind of information helps maintain a good idea of when to expect the new phone we are so excited for:)

I don't have the requested information yet myself, as I haven't pre-ordered, but I'm hoping to see some details from others that can maybe help me decide. At this time, I know I want the S23 Ultra. The smaller S23 is also amazing looking and feeling, but you just can't beat those Ultra cameras!

What I can't decide on yet is color, and if I should order one from my carrier directly (AT&T) or on Samsung.com. Locked or unlocked. I usually get the unlocked model, but carriers might have a slightly better trade-in offer. On paper, a trade-in deal from AT&T is much stronger, as they accept any S or Note phone, from any year and in any condition (according to their own site), but keep in mind that their trade-in value is spread over 30 months, in a form of bill credits, while Samsung discounts the phone instantly. I assume other carriers work similarly.

(a side note, if you're looking at a carrier option on Samsung.com, check every step on the ordering page carefully. It looks like it defaults to adding the AT&T Next Up feature, which is a monthly charge, and personally, I don't want it, and you may or may not want it either, so just make sure you make all the right selections, so there are no surprises later)

So, when I do decide and place that order, I'll be sure to come back and post an update, but in the meantime, please don't hesitate and share your stuff here. 

Thanks everyone, let's go....

Ordered on the 2nd at night directly from Samsung.com. Unlocked 512GB in black. Traded in S22 Ultra. Says delivery by the 17th but I've heard of others getting info for earlier so hopefully I can get something soon.

Also as a side note, if anyone is trading an S22 Ultra for T-Mobile, it is a less trade in discount than Unlocked so don't let the prices fool you. Play around with each options, carrier etc to get the best deals for you. Not sure if it's the same thing with the other carriers on the site but always try different options to get the best prices for you.

Unfortunately I changed my mind and put an order in at Google Fi and canceled the samsung.com order. Better deal without any tradein needed and still unlocked.

Well as long as it's the same color, you're still good:) I'm kidding, they all look great, but the cream is the one I'm leaning towards.
