Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge now available to order from T-Mobile

galaxy s6 feature

As announced previously, T-Mobile opened up the pre-sale for its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge models online and in store today. And – although storage and color options are slightly limited – there’s a good enough variety to give you plenty of choice. At least, when it comes to storage options.

T-Mobile will be offering the 32GB and 64GB models of the S6 and S6 Edge from launch in Black Sapphire and White Pearl. 128GB models of the S6 in black and white will also be available and – along with the aforementioned models – have a 7-10 day shipping estimate if ordered from today. The 128GB model of the S6 Edge in white and black has an estimated shipping time of 2-4 weeks while gold models of all devices simply states “coming soon” with no specific ETA.

Of course, those shipping estimates will be subject to change as more people order their device for delivery in time for launch day. You can keep an eye on the estimated shipping dates on this T-Mobile page.

For those wondering about pricing, I’ve compiled a list of storage options and models below. It’s worth noting that the pages are very slow at responding when attempting to view details. I guess previous flagship launches didn’t help T-Mo learn to better prepare its systems.

Galaxy S6 – Order here

  • 32GB – $679.92 full retail price – $0 down and 24 x $28.33
  • 64GB – $759.99 full retail price – $99.99 down and 24 x $27.50

    so no green or gold? ugh

    • Cam Bunton

      No green or blue, ever by the looks of things. At least gold is “coming soon”.

      • jonathan3579

        I tweeted Des on Twitter and he said that some colors just flat out are not coming to the U.S. and there was nothing they could have done to offer them. Keep in mind I said they are THE WORST carrier when it comes down to color selection.

        • Cam Bunton

          It was the same when I worked for T-Mo in the UK. Rarely had decent color options of anything. Black, white, silver.

        • SEBA

          I agree, even Gear S comes in 1 color from Tmo. Verizon and att offer 2 colors. I bouth 1 from tmo and other from Att.

      • moiimoii

        I was really hoping to get green but I would settle for gold but it seems like they will have gold for both phones by April 10th I just saw them reply to a comment on their Facebook page

  • Jesus Soto

    having problem with ordering online had to call my order in! I got the s6 64gb edge pearl white

    • jonathan3579

      I had to call my order in this morning too. The website was flipping out.

  • teckn9ne23

    Band 12 is not showing on the website any one know if it has it att website shows band 12 but not tmobiles.

    • Sean

      I saw an excerpt on the Spectrum Gateway website that the phones will have Band 12 based on some FCC filings. Plus, the recent Notes have it, so Samsung should be including it in these new ones.

  • Jackson

    Don’t buy Samsung Phones! Battery explodes!!!

    • jonathan3579

      So do other manufacturers.

  • Mike

    I have the note edge debating if I should wait for the edge 2 or note 5 or pick up the s6 edge 128GB

    • FILA

      wow, why want to upgrade so soon

      • Prod1702

        ppl like to get something new whenever something new comes out. I just got a Nexus 6 when it came out and am on the edge about getting a Edge 64gb just because it is newer. Is it crazy to always buy the newest one, most likely yes, but that’s why I got jump when it 1st came out. I do jump every 6 months.

    • Sung

      if you don’t care about going smaller screen/no sdcard/no battery swipe or almight s-pen than S6 edge doesn’t sound bad :P I personally would wait for Note 5 or Edge 2

    • Sakuraba

      I just preordered the 6, but if the Note 4 size isnt a concern for you, I’d wait for the 5. Should have a few upgrades

  • Sean

    I made the mistake of switching to Sprint…I think I’ll make my return to T-Mobile on a Galaxy S6.

    • 9to5Slavery

      What is the mistake

      • Prod1702

        “What is the mistake?” Its Sprint that’s the mistake. In MN sprint blows ass. I am sure it isn’t like that everywhere but It is here in MN.

        • Mike

          Its sucks and is slow here too in the Chicago area, but like you said, im sure its not like that everywhere.

        • TK – Indy

          Sprint beats T-mobile in Chicago speeds. Sprint is great in Chicago.

        • Mike

          In some areas, it might, but where I go in the city for work and in the burbs and outlying areas, T-Mobile rocks!

        • Sean

          I live in the DC suburbs and signal is spotty at best. Plenty of places in Northern VA have a decent signal, but even more places still have 3G or 1X. Pentagon City, downtown Vienna and Fairfax City are great examples. Things were (and still are) WAY more consistent on T-Mobile. I switched to get a cheaper plan on Sprint, but like they say, you get what you pay for.

        • JE_25

          Where are you in MN?

        • Prod1702

          I work in Eagan, MN and Live in Waconia, MN. I love the fact that they just turned on Band 12 in the whole Waconia area in the last few weeks. Now I get LTE everywhere I go. I am thinking of driving more up North one day to see just how far LTE with Band 12 goes.

  • Dean Smith

    i will ask tmobile to give me better deal on s6 as i am 12 year customer and i prefer 64gb gold platinum. I don’t care about the netflix thing

    • moiimoii

      Update on how that goes please

      • Mike

        I’m sure they will say to go fly a kite to most who ask.

    • justanormalguy13

      People don’t realize that it’s the manufacturers that set the price, not the carrier.

      • bisayan

        Tell that to Verizon! Their pricing for the s6/edge are a lot less than tmo/sprint/att.

        • TK – Indy

          Those are great prices. Need more data than they offer, though.

        • dtam

          lol, had to read that twice because verizon/samsung had to make things confusing by both using “Edge”

        • bisayan

          I just realize this! lolz

  • Jay Holm

    Hmm…no mention at all was made of a 2-4 week wait for the 128GB white S6, I oordered mine over the phone, and was told April 10.

    • Bryan Pizzuti

      Same here, this is disappointing, but I wasn’t going to change 64 GB not being enough.

  • Prod1702

    Man the price on the higher storage options is just crazy. $860 for Edge 64gb omg. I kinda want a smaller phone since my Nexus 6 is so big and doesn’t fit in anything but for that much, it is kinda hard for me to bite it.

  • TheDonJ77

    No Gold available at pre-order launch is a FAIL!! Now those who want gold have to hope it’s available by April 10th

  • TK – Indy

    Legere and Claure went at it a bit on Twitter about this. Seems Sprint is offering S6 on lease, total price including phone/unlimited T&T/data $80. $450/year less than T-mobile. Close to $20/month less on Sprint, but it is a 2 yr lease, you don’t own the phone. Fun Twitter exchange.

    • Mike

      Yup. Price of the phone is hidden in the plan. Why 80 a month when the other Sprint unlimited plans are 50 and 60?

      • TK – Indy

        Still a lot less than T-mobile, and they will pay your EIP. I think they will get some that can’t upgrade on T-mobile yet to sign-up. Now T-mobile will need to include lease buy-outs in Carrier Freedom.

        • Mike

          Is is cheaper, no question. Sprint just needs to be transparent about it. I think they would sign up more people that way. True also on the Carrier Freedom.

        • Joe

          Ya but I would much rather actually own the phone not just have to give it back after 2 years.

        • Mike

          Is a lease the only option they are offering for the phone at this point?

        • TK – Indy

          No, they usually offer 4 ways to get a phone. Buy it a full retail, do an installment purchase (a bit more than lease cost), lease it, or do the subsidized reduced cost on 2 year contract.

        • TK – Indy

          Occasionally they have to put some really good deals out there to meet their sales volume guarantees from manufacturers, usually on “exclusive” edition phones, like the HTC M8 Gold Harmon Kardon a few months back. You could own that for $0 down and $14/month for 24 months.

        • JJCommonSense

          Especially since you’re paying $720 for the phone after 2 years.. and u can’t keep it

        • TK – Indy

          $480 of price is phone lease, unlimited is $60 for this phone.

    • Mike

      I would like to see a MTV celebrity death match between Legere and Claure.

    • JJCommonSense

      So basically it’s an old fashioned contract…. lol except at then end you’re without a phone

      • TK – Indy

        No, you turn it in and upgrade after a year and get a new phone. You can also get 4 of these with 20GB to share for $200/mo, all in.

        • JJCommonSense

          But what if I wanna keep my phone?

        • TK – Indy

          Then a lease is not for you. Use the installment plan instead, should be around $85/mo with unlmited.

        • JJCommonSense

          A lease would definitely be for me cause I’m a phone junkie.. but that still doesn’t change the fact that Sprint is basically lowering the price for their contracts.. if their unlimited talk and data plan is $50 per month alone, then there’s $30 of that $80 going towards the phone.. at the end of 2 years that’s $720.. so you’ve paid $720 for a $699 phone that you can’t even keep at the end of 2 years???

        • TK – Indy

          Close, the $50 unlimited rate is only for iPhones. This would be $60 unlimited rate, so you would pay $480 ($20 x 24 mo.) for the phone rental (lease).

  • BeTerminated

    I would rather avoid Sprint at all cost. My friend bought Galaxy S5 which cannot be unlock even the hardware is GSM. Service is bad at least in NYC area. It is up to you guys but I would rather pay more, stay with T-mobile than going to sprint. Even Sprint says that they will be unlock devices made after Februaru 2015, I would not risk it. T-mobile you pay off the phone, call them and fully unlock it. There is no such a thing as domestic or international unlock. you can use it with any sim card.

    • TK – Indy

      Lease ’em and turn ’em in. Saves hassle of trade-in ripoff or selling old phone. Be sure to insure it, though.

      • Mike

        Thats one thing I love about being on the JUMP program. It includes the insurance.

        • TK – Indy

          It is a good program if you just gotta switch all the time. If not, it is costing more each month, and never ends.

        • Mike

          Exactly. Too bad alot of people dont understand the dynamics behind it. Its basically a lease with option to upgrade or buy.

  • ewilts

    Does the Jump program restrict owners from waiting until the phones are in the stores before JUMPing? The Netflix promotion ends April 12 (or until they run out, whatever that means) and the phones won’t be in the stores until April 10. I’d like to JUMP now.

    • Mike

      You should be able to pre order on JUMP if you are eligible.

    • Georgie1234

      You should be able to do it but you have to do it in store

    • Michael Ramos

      You should be able to do it online, go to my T-Mobile .com sign in go to the phone you want to upgrade and check if you have payed the 50% of the phone then if your eligible continue.

    • ewilts

      I was able to order my phone online using the JUMP program. Now I have to (im)patiently wait…

  • Houston

    Pre ordered and They took the money from my account..does that mean they’ll be shipping soon.? I was told when they charge your card the phone should be on the way.

    • Moe

      I had the same thing happen, and am wondering the same thing. I can’t imagine we’re getting phones over a week before the actual launch. Seems like a misstatement.

      • Houston

        well i hope we do get it

        • Moe

          I could it see it coming a few days early, but I paid for overnight shipping (likely a waste of money), and there’s just no way it’ll be here on Monday. That said, I didn’t get charged until my iPhone 6 Plus left the warehouse, so if that’s a firm (and correctly stated) policy, then maybe this is an early Christmas present from John Legere.

        • Houston

          same thing happened with my note 4 and my card was charged and I also chose overnight shipping, I think it’ll get shipped early though because usually they don’t charge your card until they ship the phone

    • Stephen

      Well I decided to go with the M9 and my card was charged and I just checked my order status and it shows as shipped and a tracking number is provided. I went with overnight shipping as there is a banner on the M9 page that says free overnight shipping, although I had to chat after placing the order to get it corrected. Hoping you guys with the S6 get yours shipped early as well.

    • Rafat Omar

      I pre ordered the edge this morning and my order status page says ‘shipped’ already. There’s no tracking info yet, though. I wonder if they’re shipping immediately as a gift or if it’s just a shipping label being created that generated that.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    I will stay from SamDUNG from now. Not really worth the updgrade. I will enjoy my NEXUS 6 for now.

    • nsmil10

      Good for you

  • George

    Why upgrade to Samsung when the M9 costs way less and has superior software????

    • Sakuraba

      The M9 doesnt cost way less, and it’s inferior in almost every other aspect

      • TK – Indy

        Guys, this is a Pepsi vs Coke type issue. Some like each. Be together, not the same. (Trademark?)

        • Sakuraba

          It’s not though, it’s a which product has more value issue

        • TK – Indy

          To many people, no SD and no removable battery = 0 value. To each his own.

        • Sakuraba

          True, but that’s not the original argument that was made

  • WhippetNYC

    @Cam: may i please ask if you’ve mistaken the wait time/ship time of the 128GB S6 Edge?

    In your text, you wrote “…The 128GB model of the S6 Edge in white and black has an estimated shipping time of 2-4 weeks…”, yet, lower down, in your table, it says 7-10 days.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Bobly

    Any conformation on BAND 12 700 ?!!!!!

    • Joe

      Not really but why would they put band 12 in the note 4 and the galaxy avant but not put it in the s6.

    • gmo8492

      It has band 12.

      • Jay Holm

        There shouldn’t have been any doubt.

  • CantQuite

    I fondled it at Best Buy. Its pretty. Very. But I think Im going to buy a Note 4.

  • Dustin Roe

    Seems crazy we are talking about $1000 phones once you add in tax

  • Aeternus Eternus

    Bought the 32GB Black Sapphire. I will have it on 03/30/2015. It has already been shipped.

    • An Phan

      Hey mine said the same order status “Shipped.” But no tracking number. Did you get any tracking number?

      • Aeternus Eternus

        No tracking number yet, but the website shows Shipped. We should get one soon.

        • An Phan

          I chatted with a customer service agent. She told me the phone won’t be ship out till Apr 10 which is when it is being released. So lets hope she’s wrong. If not then we paid $25 for UPS Expedited Next Day for nothing……

        • Aeternus Eternus

          I doubt she knows what she’s talking about. I’ll call them to confirm. If so, I’m going to have to call them and ask for a refund on the shipping. I paid $25 for expedited shipping, not standard. Dammit T-Mobile!

        • An Phan

          Yep. Call them and confirm man. Let me know so I can get my money back also. I also post on their FB page. No response but they response pretty quick when someone ask them for the price though.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          I called T-Mobile, the rep confirmed what you said. She said that the expedited shipping will take affect on the release date of April 10th, not 03/30/2015 as the T-Mobile website shows. I asked her to have her manager send me an email confirming what she had stated about the shipping date.

          This is so stupid and misleading.

        • An Phan

          You got the Manager email yet? I will give it till Monday. After that I will get my $25 back. They need to brief all of their staff and keep them informed. Some would say you will get it before the release date, some say it will be delivered on that date, some say after….. ummmmm so which one is it Tmobile? Make up your mind.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Here is my chat conversation with Jonathan M. from T-Mobile:

          JonathanM: I
          see that the order was created today, March 27, 2015 for Samsung
          Galaxy S ® 6 edge – 32GB, and I see that the order is expedited next
          day. Yes you are correct, On our end, the estimated delivery date is
          3/30/2015. however this is only the estimated delivery date, this is not
          official yet since this was just made today. I see a tracking number
          however it is not updated yet by the courier and you will be receiving
          the updated one, possibly tomorrow. If you receive a tracking number, that means that the package has been shipped or is about to be shipped.

        • Kurt Schultz

          I got a tracking number! :D

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Nice! Is the shipping date different from the purchase order?

        • Kurt Schultz

          According to UPS it is in transit and delivery is “Tuesday, 03/31/2015, By End of Day”

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Awesome! Seeing that you’ve received your shipping info gives me some hope that I will receive mine too.

          Enjoy!

        • Kurt Schultz

          There is hope! Just hopefully they don’t port your number early like they did with my girlfriend. We just got back from the store where she got a Nokia lumia loaner phone. She wanted to kill me but now not so much since she only has to live with that for four days.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Oh wow, that sucks. That would definitely be a problem if they port my number over. I run my business off of my phone (calls, emails, texts, etc.)

          T-Mobile should change their company motto to “T-Mobile – Hope for the best, Expect the worst” :)

        • anthony

          This is a PRE SALE which means any device ordered will be shipped out ASAP if inventory PERMITS. So, if theres inventory for YOUR DEVICE, it will get shipped out. If you ordered today with NEXT DAY SHIPPING, you will get your device by MONDAY, if not TUESDAY at the latest.

          So if you Order your device, you will get it before APRIL 10 depending on inventory and Shipping speed that you PICK.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Awesome, thanks!

        • anthony

          No worries! Sign up for UPS my choice to get your tracking #, if not t-mobile will send you an email with tracking information tonight/early tomorrow morning.

        • Jay Holm

          Just out of curiosity, what time did you place your order? I placed mine at 9am eastern time, and as of 1:30am Saturday I haven’t been charged, no shipping notification.

        • An Phan

          I placed mine at 07:00:19 PST. Finally got the tracking number now. I’ll get it on Monday 03/30/2015.

        • Jay Holm

          So I ordered mine before you, cause 9am eastern is 6am pacific, did you pay for faster shipping? Could it be because I chose the 128GB capacity?

        • An Phan

          I paid for the Expedited Next Day. I ordered the regular S6 64gb. Yea it could be the 128gb. Did you order the Edge? Edge is getting pretty hot on orders. The Edge doesn’t really fit for my need so I got the regular.

        • Jay Holm

          I got the regular also. Part of the reason I got t got 128GB is the EIP is the same for both 64 and 128, so I was like heck just get the 128 and be all set, I intend on keeping my S6 for at least 3yrs.

        • An Phan

          I don’t like seeing my bills to be high every month so I just pay full price so I don’t have to deal with it later.

        • Kurt Schultz

          9:55 EST. It might be because it was for a new line so they hurried it up to try and impress a new customer?

        • An Phan

          So he see a tracking number so why don’t he just give you the tracking number instead of waiting till tomorrow? They want to keep it mysterious I guess.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Finally, some relief. It looks like I’m going to receive it on 03/30/2015. Just received my shipping info. Anything on your end?

          Yep! Woke up this morning and my UPS apps notification pops up with the tracking number. It will delivered on the same day as yours. Funny how I have to wait till monday to get it when the phone is at my UPS customer care facility near my house already!

          Tmobile really need to brief all of their customer care agents though. This right here is called poor planning and poor leadership chain of command.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Nothing from the manager yet. I’ll post it as soon as it I receive it.

        • An Phan

          Also they drew my money out of my bank already…. They only suppose to take your money on the day they ship your order.

        • Aeternus Eternus

          Yeah, they took my money out immediately after I made the purchase.

          There is never a delay in them taking money from their customers, it’s only when they have to return the favor.

          capitalism at its finest.

        • Jay Holm

          Hmm, I haven’t been charged yet. I ordered around 9:30am eastern.

        • An Phan

          T-Mobile Ruben, if you order yours today and select overnight shipping, you could get it as early as 3/28! -Noah B.

          This is what they replied to someone on FB.

        • Anibal

          Tmobile told me is overnight shipping by the time of release, so april 10 is the date they will ship it out.

        • thepanttherlady

          Expedited shipping doesn’t mean it ships *now*. It means when the item ships you’ll get it sooner.

  • why isn’t the Gold ready to order?

    • gmo8492

      Samsung has only shipped the white and black models. They are going to release the gold model next month.

      • next month as in April?

        • gmo8492

          Late April, 2 – 3weeks.

      • Say the truth!

        I receive a email from tmobile saying 64gb gold it’s available now for per order and 32 ,128 gb would be available April 10. I can’t wait!!!!

        • gmo8492

          Thanks for the heads up.

    • Eric Stengrevics

      T-Mobile said they should have the gold available April 10th. If not, then soon after.

  • Zbum

    OK where do I look for cases ? I ordered the EDGE.

    • An Phan

      get on Amazon and search for Spigen is your best bet. I just ordered one just so I have some type of protection for the phone while I wait for the lifeproof to come out.

      • Zbum

        Thanks for the update….what’s lifeproof ?

      • Aeternus Eternus

        Lifeproof?

        • thepanttherlady

          Water, shock, dust proof case

        • Aeternus Eternus

          wow, I think I might pick one up. Thanks @thepanttherlady:disqus

      • Billy

        I went with the Verus Hard Drop Active for $24.99! It’ll be here on the 1st!

  • WhippetNYC

    Anyone ordered an S6 Edge 128GB?

    I received a text message immediately after I placed the pre-order early this morning (prior to 10am EST) stating that “estimated delivery date is 3/30/15”. This sounds highly unlikely to me though I read below that others ordering the 32GB model has received their tracking #s.

    Can that really be true, that we’ll receive our phones as early as 3/30th? It just sounds highly improbable to me considering all the other Samsung pre-orders that I’ve been through.

  • SJones920

    I pre-ordered this morning and it says shipped and I have a tracking number.

    • SJones920

      My ETA when I ordered said I’d have it by 4/7

      • Jay Holm

        Same here, 4/7. I ordered the standard white 128GB one. Looking forward to seeing how truly fast this UFS 2.0 memory can install apps. I will be downloading the Nova launcher when I get my S6, that will be my first time using it, I’ve been using GoLauncher for 4+ years, just feel like giving something else a try.

    • WhippetNYC

      @SJones920: congrats! May I ask which model and what size memory you ordered? Thx. As per my post above (later post than yours), even though I received a text message from TMobile right after i ordered that my delivery date is 3/30th, the website now went from “Processing Shipment” to “Backordered”!! This happened around 3am, which was only 6 hours ago in the middle of the night. I’m wondering if they are really out of stock or is it merely a glitch in their system and that all will be well and they’ll still ship mine out? But, things sure aren’t looking good now, with my Order Status saying “Back Ordered”. Sheesh. Weird.

      • SJones920

        @WhippetNYC:disqus I got the flat S6 32 GB memory in white. I ordered it through my Jump upgrade at 7:45am cst yesterday.

        • WhippetNYC

          Thx. Interesting that your original ETA was 4/7th and yet you’ll get it earlier! Hooray for you.

  • Jesse

    Shiiiiiippppeeeeeddddddddd!!!!! Monday delivery awesome!

    • WhippetNYC

      @Jesse: first of all, congrats!!
      May I ask which model and what size memory you ordered? Thx.

      • jonathan3579

        My 64GB black sapphire Edge shipped with delivery on Wednesday.

        • WhippetNYC

          @jonathan3579: maybe, i’m guessing, the delay has to do with the lack of inventory of the 128gb Edge version? i doubt that my choice of white has to do with it, as they made it clear that the plat/gold version is the one they didn’t have in stock as of yet. Darn it, why didn’t they say that choosing the 64gb would mean shipment immediately and choosing the 128gb version would mean a delay? I’d have gladly saved $100 and gotten the 64gb white! Bummed.

      • Jesse

        I ordered the black sapphire 32 gb

        • WhippetNYC

          Thx for your reply. Well, between your 32gb and jonathan3579’s 64gb versions shipping out pronto/early, one would surmise that it’s the 128gb that is in short supply currently? I realize that this is based on very low sampling ;) Darn. I would have gladly gone for the 64gb if I had known. TMobile could have communicated this far better, with greater transparency.

    • m wasserman

      there is no way that you or anyone else who thinks they are getting their phones Monday will get them..this is the same nonsense that has happened with the last 2 Samsung releases from t mobile..they cant release them this early, so prepare to be disappointed

      • WhippetNYC

        @m wasserman: are you saying that despite these shipped out notices, they’ve merely generated the labels but not yet actually sent out the units physically? they are sort of holding them back for a few more days until it’s not way way earlier than the 4/10th official release date? if that were to be the case, what is the advantage of paying $25 for Next Day Air? Also: why would TMobile’s system auto-generate these notifications that give customers false expectations?

        • m wasserman

          I don’t know why their system does it, but the last 2 pre orders at tmobile have been complete fiascos, with people thinking they were getting their phones in a day or2, and it ended up taking more like 7-10, even if they paid for overnight shipping. Hopefully, it wont be a repeat of that, but I wouldn’t count on it

        • WhippetNYC

          Last year, iirc, my pre-order for my S5 was simpler:
          there was only one model available in 2 colors (i think), and i ordered the white 16gb, as there was no other version available to choose from except colors. mine arrived 1 day or 2 days prior to the official launch day, which is essentially negligible. i do not recall issues to last year’s pre-order, though as life goes, one tends to remember the good things and smooth out the less good things ;)

        • An Phan

          No worries guys they will ship it out before release date. I thought mine was going to get shipped on the release date because of the Customer care agent said that the phone will not get ship till then. I got my tracking already this morning. Delivery will be on Monday 03/30.

        • WhippetNYC

          @An Phan: If you were correct, then it’s a matter of TMobile’s “systems” that is essentially broken or wrong. Because if customer service told you that you won’t get it till 4/10th, and you actually received a tracking number, then it means that the customer service folks’ systems is not telling them complete information or incorrect information.

          Hope you’re right! In that case, Sunday or Sunday night, there will be surprising and good news to some of us!

        • Benjamin Dover

          I called them. They told me I could expect it to ship between 4/11 and 4/25.

      • Moe

        I would generally agree. However, we’re not talking about merely generating a shipping label and holding the package back at the t mobile warehouse. My package (as I’d imagine is the case for many others) arrived at the Louisville, KY ups distribution center at 12:39 am this morning. And UPS’ website indicates it’s route for an on-time delivery on 3/30. If t mobile were holding back packages, I assume they wouldn’t have turned them over to ups. Once they’re turned over, ups takes it from there, and I doubt ups is interested in breaking its overnight delivery guarantees to accomodate game playing by t mobile. Could be wrong, but this is definitely different than the iphone 6 plus debacle, which I was a participant in.

        • diva bunz

          Which type did u order I am in area and mine is on back order

  • WhippetNYC

    Even though I ordered (S6 edge white 128gb) well before the 10am Eastern start time, my order status had a setback this morning:

    Back Ordered 03/28/2015
    at 02:55:30 AM
    Order Placed 03/27/2015
    at 06:07:28 AM

    Those listed times are Pacific.

    Why did my status change from “Preparing to Ship” to “Back Ordered”? I really couldn’t have ordered any earlier!

    I even received a text message right after I ordered that says arrival date of 3/30th.

    Bummer. Wonder if it’s because it’s the 128gb model?

    • Whitney

      Last year my s5 showed as back ordered. It will say this until the item actually ships.

  • Josh Thompson

    I ordered S6 pearl white 64gb on Friday 11:30 am, I have a tracking number for 3/30/2015 delivery. As of 6:33am local time it’s sitting in the local Ups hub. The weight shows 0.30, does anyone else’s show that weight?

    • Houston

      Mine is shipped for delivery on Monday but the weight is 1.10 lb

      • Moe

        My package is 1.10 as well. Scheduled for Monday delivery.

        • Billy

          My 64gb Sapphire Black s6 will be here on Monday, the weight says 1.00lbs. I wonder what the difference in weight is all about!

    • WhippetNYC

      Guys: so it seems like the S6 64gb units are flowing well! kudos to you all.
      Well, bummer for me. I ordered the S6 Edge, albeit really early, around 9am Eastern Time Zone when I was finally done — took some time to do as this is the first time I’m already on Jump and trying to upgrade from my current Jump (first time) to this new S6 Edge. Odd thing is that I almost immediately received a text message saying that delivery date is estimated to be 3/30th! Even the order status page said “processing shipment” for a day or so, and then, in the middle of last night, 2:30am roughly, the status changed to “Back Ordered”. What’s going on? Did they all of a sudden realize that they ran out of S6 Edge units but they previously thought they had enough to go around including my unit?

  • Eric David Guerrero

    I ordered my 32gb S6 edge last night and it says it is back ordered,anyone else having this problem or know how long it will be backordered for ?

    • Michael Ramos

      Ordered mine like an hour after it was available & last night said order processing but this morning now it says backordered, idk what’s going on :(

      • WhippetNYC

        @Michael Ramos: exactly the same scenario as you here on my end! Bummer. I ordered as early as possible, well before the stated start time for online pre-ordering (officially stated as 10am Eastern, 7am Pacific).

        Oddly, at the time of completion of my pre-order, i received a text message immediately saying 3/30th would be my delivery date.

        This morning at 8:30am, I received yet another text message also from TMobile, this time, it says:

        “your order is confirmed. you will receive a text message with your tracking number ONCE WE RECEIVE INVENTORY AND YOUR PAYMENT PROCESSES…”

        Huh? TMobile still doesn’t have my phone in their inventory yet?!?

        • Michael Ramos

          At least you got a text message I didn’t get anything from T-Mobile only the recipient via email. Which model did you order?

        • Eric David Guerrero

          T mobile said they would DM me about details on my order, I tweeted them asking why my order said back ordered and I’m still waiting but I will comment back when they give me details

        • WhippetNYC

          @Michael Ramos and @Eric David Guerrero: i ordered the Edge 128gb white. you guys?

        • Michael Ramos

          Got the 32gb white edge , just checked the order status and got this Item: Samsung Galaxy S® 6 edge – White Pearl – 32GB
          Status: Awaiting more shipments from Samsung. Expected to ship between 04/02/2015 and 04/07/2015

        • WhippetNYC

          thx for your reply, @Michael Ramos.

          i just checked my order status page, it still says exactly the same thing as before: “Back Ordered”.

          This kind of sucks, especially when I received an actual text message from TMobile stating 3/30th as the delivery date immediately after I ordered — one would think they know their inventory and as folks order “live”, they can do a countdown and know how many units they have in stock?!?

        • neil

          I am getting same status :(

        • Michael Ramos

          My status changed yesterday, and shipped last night, its now out for delivery for today

        • WhippetNYC

          just entered my Netflix deal today and it went through. i posted this same comment above but saw that you posted this just now, so i wanted to be sure you don’t miss out on the Netflix deal as well since they claim it is limited to the first x number of respondents.

        • Eric David Guerrero

          The tmobile rep said that they aren’t back ordered but that they would ship within 10 days he also said we should get them sooner since we pre ordered them the first day they were available

        • WhippetNYC

          I had hopes that, maybe, just maybe, similar to what happened to Friday night (Sat early morning 3am), they changed my Order Status from Preparing Shipment to Back Ordered, that last night as I was sleeping, they would change my order status from Back Ordered to Shipped!! Alas, no such luck.

        • Eric David Guerrero

          Same with me, mine has said back ordered since Saturday night at 3am and haven’t gotten an update, tmobile said they would ship within 10 days, but unfortunately couldn’t guarantee me that it would ship before April 10th. I’m wondering if I’ll be better off going to a tmobile store and getting one on the first come first serve basis

        • WhippetNYC

          @Eric David Guerrero: odd that both of ours said Back Ordered at 3am. Such an odd time to do a “data dump” and send out mass updates of bad news.

          When you wrote that “TMobile said they would ship within 10 days…”, I take that to mean that you called and spoke to a Customer Service Rep? I would not, personally, take their word for these things. Cust Serv Reps vary wildly, imho, in their knowledge, effectiveness, and level of care they wish to devote to any particular customer or question. They’d just spew out whatever sounded good at the moment and just get that customer off the phone at times! Just my take on these things.

          If you were to go to a TMobile brick and mortar store, you won’t get a phone today, nor tomorrow (3/30th), nor the 7 days or so after that! I’d say it’s better to stick with your original order — at least your order has early bird priority, since you presumably placed your order on the early side compared with the vast majority of other customers. Does this make sense, or am I just overthinking this?

        • Eric David Guerrero

          No, it definitely makes sense ! and about the rep I disn’t speak to a rep on the phone I message them on their @tmobilehelp twitter page or whatever and they messaged me back with the information I gave you guys so they didn’t really help me they gave me the same estimate they gave everyone. I don’t believe they actually checked my actual order to see the exact step my order was at. Hopefully we will get news soon. And yeah I think I am better off waiting for this order to go through, It’s just a little frustrating that we pre ordered and they are already making us wait

        • WhippetNYC
        • WhippetNYC

          http://

        • WhippetNYC

          So bummed – nada, zilch, no updates whatsoever on my Order Status. Still Back Ordered. Gosh. I pre-ordered over an hour before the official start time of pre-ordering!! I was done by 9am Eastern when the official start time for pre-ordering was 10am Eastern! What’s going on?

        • diva bunz

          Same here I ordered mar 27 when they opened orders at 9 am in store and my order is back ordered wth I was like one of the first the sales man said smh

        • Eric David Guerrero

          I honestly think they don’t even have them in stock yet and theyre just taking orders for the time that they receive them. It says they’ll ship within 7-10 days so we can’t really complain I guess…that being said its still unfair that some people already have their on the way when we ordered within the same time frame…:(((

        • WhippetNYC

          @Eric David Guerrero: mmm…my question would then be: how early can those early bird recipients possibly have ordered theirs? It is not even possible to order it too many minutes before I did!

          I completed my order around 9am Eastern. It took quite a while to complete (Jump and this and that), maybe 15-20 minutes? At 8am or 8:15am, the TMobile site was still not working, it kept on saying they are updating the site, etc.

          So the most those folks could have ordered before me would be around 30 minutes. In that case, TMobile ran out of 128gb Edge White models in their inventory already?!? Did they have 2 units in their inventory? (sarcasm intended) Sheesh.

          Like you, I’m not feeling too good about this. I do not think I could have pre-ordered any earlier than I did. Don’t forget please, pre-order didn’t official even begin until 10am Eastern! And…I was done by around 9am Eastern!

        • Eric David Guerrero

          Exactly ! I just went for the base 32gb model because I thought they would have more of those ready right off the start. I guess it truly only is a waiting game now. I’ve read reports that tmobile updates or orders tend be laggy and not up to date so I guess the only time we’ll know that our phones have shipped is when they take the money out of our bank accounts haha !

        • Eric David Guerrero

          Hey so just an update, I received notice from my bank and t mobile took the payment, so that means the phone has shipped…I’m still waiting on a tracking number but if all goes right and tmobile didn’t lie, my phone should be on its way since they took the payment. My order still says backordered which doesn’t make sense but maybe it hasn’t updated, I’m hoping it’ll update by tonight. Have you guys had any updates on yours ?

        • WhippetNYC

          @Eric David Guerrero: how does one private message here?

        • Eric David Guerrero

          Uhmm I’m not sure I’ve never used this before until a couple days ago

        • thepanttherlady

          There is no pm option.

        • Eric David Guerrero

          Mine updated and shipped out this morning

    • Benjamin Dover

      Might not see my 3/28 [$27.50 express shipping] order of the 128gb black onyx until 4/25.

  • WhippetNYC

    How long between seeing a debit on your credit card and seeing the Order Status change on TMobile.com to “Shipped”?

  • Eric David Guerrero

    Can anyone tell me how long it took for their order status to update after the payment was processed from their account ? I was told that I wouldn’t be charged until my phone was shipped, and I got a email from my bank saying I had been charged for the phone but I haven’t gotten an update on my order it still says backorder from 3/28. It would be much appreciated, thank you !

    • WhippetNYC

      @Eric David Guerrero: everything happened so rapidly late last night.

      2am (!) handed to UPS! 3am departure scan. 5am arrival scan. 5:40am departure scan to go to my local depot. 7:20am out for delivery for today.

      like you, i only got a debit last evening.

      now, the hope is that it arrives unscathed and without all those micro scratches which some have reported here on the comments.

      last year, my S5 arrived (pre-order as well) in a UPS plastic mailing bag that was way way bigger than the phone, completely WITHOUT any packing or protective materials! Nothing! Not even a single sheath of bubblewrap. fortunately, my phone was seemingly ok, though it acted up months later.

      @Eric: hope the same rapid sequence of events for you!

      • Eric David Guerrero

        Mine just shipped out this morning and I paid for 3 days shipping so I think I still have a couple days to wait but congrats ! Thanks for the update !

        • WhippetNYC

          It’s an excellent phone. Good design. Of course, only time will tell if it is comfy in the hand or…

          My initial take is that this is an all-out assault to be the best currently possible within this price point. Kudos to them.

        • Eric David Guerrero

          So I payed for 3 day shipping…and aperantly it just shipped out an hour ago…and now the estimate says i wont get it till Monday which is 4 business days plus the weekend even though I payed for the 3 day…I hope they do alot of shipping overnight and the estimated time updates to 2 business days or else I will talk to tmobile about getting a refund on the extra shipping cost I made…

        • WhippetNYC

          fyi to all: just entered my Netflix deal today and it went through. it looks like you all still have time.

    • Benjamin Dover

      I ordered mine when I got the email on 3/28. Selected the 128gb black onyx. Selected express shipping. The order is stuck on “backordered.”

      Called them on 4/2 and they said I can expect it to ship between 4/11 [a day after the 4/10 release] and 4/25.

      Imagine, almost a month waiting for pre-order.

  • Ron

    Will not get tell green is out.

  • Benjamin Dover

    I ordered mine after receiving the 3/28 email. Selected the 128gb black onyx with express shipping that costs $27.50. Status of pre-order stuck on “backordered.”

    Called them on 4/2. They said I could expect it to ship between 4/11 [a day after the 4/10 release date] and 4/25.

    Yes, April 25th.

    I wasn’t expecting that with pre-order. Thanks, T-Mobile.
