T-Mobile telling Galaxy Note 8 pre-order customers that their orders will ship soon

galaxynote8orchidgreytmo

Days after T-Mobile began taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it looks like devices will soon begin going out to customers.

T-Mobile has started sending text messages to Galaxy Note 8 pre-order customers to tell them that their Note 8 order “is being packed and will begin shipping soon.” When the order ships, buyers’ cards will be charged.

tmogalaxynote8packed

The Galaxy Note 8 will launch on September 15th, but it’s possible that pre-order customers will receive their phones before that date. T-Mobile regularly delivers new phones to pre-order customers before the devices’ launch dates, including both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 7. T-Mo’s shipping dates page currently lists the Note 8 as starting to ship on September 13th, but maybe they’ll begin going out sooner.

If you pre-ordered a Note 8, have you received a text message about your order being packed?

Thanks, Mr P, Weston, Erik, and JP!

    Yessir!!!!

    I wonder if it will be with Band 71? HAHA I JOKE I KID!

    Still excited to see this thing.

    • JayBEE

      ha

    • Bemi

      That’s one reason I just leased it from Tmobile. I’m still tempted to get that offer from Samsung. I hear that band 71 is like having Verizon service. SERVICE EVERYWHERE…

      • noh1bvisas

        that must be why verizon is losing customers and tmo is gaining customers.

        • MadJoe

          I think Verizon is losing customers because people are starting to realize you pay an awful lot more for only a modicum of better coverage on a more congested network. Also, VzW CS is flipping bi-polar. I know people who rave about how well their treated by them, and others who say Verizon couldn’t be bothered to give two toots on a clown horn when they have an issue.

        • pengko

          that and verizon is throttling everyone down to 480p video, even existing customers. Haha.

        • Merrimon

          Funny, Verizon still has double the number of customers and still has superior service compared to t-mobile

        • noh1bvisas

          but for how long? V is losing, T is gaining.

        • Merrimon

          I mean, going back the last 4 years Tmobile has never broke more than half the number of customers Verizon has had. So that’s what I’m going on.

        • noh1bvisas

          but that’s not relevant to what i posted.

  • noh1bvisas

    i ordered the unlocked version from samsung. says it will ship 9/11.

    • Petey07

      I wonder when mines will be ship, since I ordered through Samsung as well (t-mobile version), because of the trade-in (note 7 deal)?

      • noh1bvisas

        there was a shipping date on the order confirmation email they sent. out of curiosity, why did you order the tmo version instead of the unlocked?

        • J.J.

          I only did for the color (only black available unlocked) plus i assume T-Mobile might push out updates quicker. Maybe im of Base on that though

        • noh1bvisas

          samsung has committed to monthly updates for the S series. i assume they will for the note, also. i kinda liked the gray, but with a glass back, i’ll be slapping a case on it anyway.

        • J.J.

          Nice. Thx again. I’ll probably keep this one a really long time(till the next note drops) lol

        • MadJoe

          Do you have experience with buying any other phone from Samsung that was locked to T-Mo? I wonder if the Unlock app T-Mo preinstalls will allow the device to be unlocked right away since buying it from Samsung you won’t owe T-Mo anything on the device.

        • noh1bvisas

          i never bought an unlocked phone, from samsung or anyone else so i can’t answer that.

    • J.J.

      TMobile from Samsung. First time buying from them. Quick question. Is it unlocked with a TMobile sim or just a standard locked TMobile version. Thx

      • noh1bvisas

        according to samsung’s website, it is factory unlocked to work on all carries (international, too). the tmo version is locked to tmobile – like what you would buy from tmo.

        • J.J.

          Awesome thx

        • MadJoe

          I wonder if the Samsung supplied T-Mo locked version will come with the T-Mo unlock app? It should allow you to unlock it immediately since you won’t owe T-Mo anything for it. I guess I’ll find out come the 14th (the date my order confirmation promised delivery).

        • noh1bvisas

          i’ll find out, too. i cancelled my unlocked and switched to the tmo version from samsung’s site (paid in full). i did this because the digits app is baked into the TMO version. it’s the only difference i have found.

      • Philip

        I have a unlock S8 from Samsung. Everything works on the T-mobile except I cannot do video call to another T-mobile user.

        • J.J.

          interesting thx.

  • Adam

    Got my text about an hour ago!

  • denise bove

    yes 2 hours ago..Pre order with t-Mobile

  • Iphart

    So when does BOGO offers starts.
    Maybe after Sept 12. Once new iPhones are announced?

    • Philip

      Do you have idea if Samsung is going to do the BOGO offer on the Note 8?

    • Mike

      The best deals more then likely won’t be until Black Friday.

    • Billy_Boy2019

      I just got off the phone with T-Mobile’s CSR and it’s 100% (BOGO)happening this coming Fri! 100%, same rules: 1. Open a new line 2. Pay the taxes on both phones 3. They send you one of the phones and 4. In 6 to 8 weeks (More like 3 to 4 weeks) T-Mobile will send you prepaid card so you can buy another Note 8!

      YES!!!!!

      Please call T-Mobile right now to verify!

  • JayBEE

    w00000000000!!!

  • Shanita

    Yes I got text about an hour ago lets see when they actually ship.

  • mreveryphone

    Thanks Alex for using my screen shot! It has made it over to phonearena as well! Now I wait and see if the one I ordered through Samsung for the note 7 customer appreciation program ships early…

  • Erik Papesh

    Sweet, got a shout out at the end of the article, hope it ships soon. I had a tracking number for almost 2 weeks with my s8+, before there was any movement.

  • Samuel Medina

    pre-ordered with t-mobile and got my text a few hours ago! I previously pre-ordered the LG G6 and I had that one in my hands over a week before the actual release date. I’m hoping t-mobile is just as good this time!

  • Philip

    Why would you wan tto order from T-mobile when you can get a T-mobile phone on Samsung site for $300 less if you turn in your Note 5. T-mobile is not doing this.

    • Daniel

      Because most ppl can’t shell out the $630 difference, plus tax in one payment.

      • g2a5b0e

        Ummm…you don’t have to. Samsung offers free financing for 2 years with qualifying credit. That’s what I did.

        • Daniel

          Yes, you’re right… Not everyone has good enough credit for that… Also if you don’t pay within the time limits, they’ll charge you a pretty high interest rate… Again, not a problem for everyone, but just something to think about…. Plus u can easily sell most of those phones they’re taking in for a similar price… So it’s not like they’re offering something I can’t already do on my own.

        • g2a5b0e

          Some, but definitely not all. I had a Note 7, so I’ve got $425 off. No way you’re getting $425 for an S5, G4, G5, or iPhone 5. But, I can’t argue with you said because you’re right as well. If you can’t go that route, then you might as well go with T-Mobile. I just know I’m getting a better deal by not.

    • Jeffrey Mele

      this is assuming you have a note 5 to turn in. I don’t, so why would I not order from T-Mobile?

    • TR-808

      I (and many others)don’t have a note 5 so that’s why. Not everyone has one to trade it. #simple. I also went in on the JOD program TMO has. win-win-win.

      • Iphart

        Win win win, with endless monthly payments on top of your regular bill with JOD.

    • mreveryphone

      I did both, ordered from tmobile and Samsung. I had a old S6 Edge+ laying around. I’m just going to jump my tmobile Note 8 into the iPhone 8 if it’s all what it’s supposed to be.

  • Victor Ayeni

    Got my text about 5 hrs ago

  • Carolyn Sinacola

    yes earlier today

  • Bryan Channel

    I got a text as well. Went on the app and the order actually was titled as a Pre-Order. Now a few hours later, it says “Partially PreOrder” again.

  • Stephen

    If they role it out like they did the Note7, tracking numbers will be provided and then there will be no movement for a good 7-10 days. I would say hope you get it quick, but expect to get it a couple days before release.

  • Angel Nieves

    I hope they ship it this week. I got the text that it’s being packed. I wonder how much packing they have to do. I pre-ordered Day 1.

  • Jade Moon

    I got a text that is was being packed for shipment. I asked T-Mobile when the shipping date was since I was not provided with one and they told me that the firm ship date is the 15th and they dont know anything else. My order went from Pre-Ordered yesterday to “PartiallyPre-Order” today. What the hell is going on at T-Mobile?!

    • noh1bvisas

      apparently “soon” is relative.

    • Stephen

      If it’s like the Note7 release, you’ll get a tracking number soon and then it will just sit in a warehouse for 7-10 days. Until it’s in the shippers hands, it doesn’t really mean anything.

    • Robert Mauro

      Check now… it likely has switched back to “Pre-ordered”.

  • Cellphone Chris

    Ordered unlocked from Samsung and traded the wife’s old iPhone5 we had laying around to get $425 off using the Note7 owner’s promo. With corporate discount and sales tax, the Note8 was ~$500. I figure I’ll sell it for ~$900. I’ll still use JOD to get a TMobile branded version to keep for myself. Well worth the hassle to get top dollar for a used iPhone, and this allows me to redeem two gift offers (Foundation Pack & Gear 360).

  • Ran al Ghul

    I just got charged

  • mreveryphone

    Um my card just got charged… Are these shipping out today??

    • Stephen

      More than likely, no. For the Note7, they had tracking numbers and charged cards. The phones sat in a warehouse for about 7-10 days before seeing any movement. Time will tell, but tracking number won’t mean anything until it’s in the shippers hands.

      • mreveryphone

        I just spoke to tforce. Our orders are boxed up and ready. It’s basically on Samsung to release them.

      • Angel Nieves

        I thought they would charge the card when it’s just about ready to ship. I was hoping to have it for the three-day weekend.

        • Stephen

          All I’m going on is what happened with the Note7. I just went back and checked and for my Note7 labels were created and cards charged on Aug 11th, didn’t see any movement from UPS until Aug 16. Ended up getting it 2 days before the official release date. Not saying that’s what will happen here, but just more of a FYI that just because labels were created, doesn’t always mean it’s about to ship. Obviously, the hope is they get them into UPS’s hands sooner rather than later.

        • Angel Nieves

          Stephen I think T-Mo is doing the same thing that you said they did for the Note7. On the order status page they marked it shipped, charged my card but UPS still doesn’t have the package. UPS says that a label has been created. Maybe Samsung doesn’t let them ship it out too early.

        • Stephen

          Hopefully they’ll start moving. I’ve seen where Verizon orders have been shipped and picked up for delivery on the 5th. Hopefully your order will start moving today and you can get it on the 5th or 6th.

      • Robert Prescott

        Totally remember waiting for the 7

  • Ike Williams

    I got my notification yesterday and today t mobile took the overnite shipping fee off my card so im wondering will the note 8 be shipped off before sept 13

    • Angel Nieves

      I got the overnight shipping too. I thought that they would bill you the shipping charge when it’s going to ship. I hope this means that it will be shipped today or tomorrow to get it by Friday.

  • Kilroy672

    I still I wished I had waited. I jumped on the iPhone7 Plus back in June. Now I have to wait until Dec if I want to order this. By then the S9 will be underway. I skipped out on the S8 in hoping to get the Note 8. I guess the best of me when I just had to have the IPhone 7 Plus and my wife got the iPhone 7. I’m guilty of have to have the latest and greatest.

  • Angel Nieves

    I just noticed a charge on my credit card for the shipping (overnight). I hope that means that TMO will be shipping it this week, if not today tomorrow. Would be nice to have the Note 8 to play with for the Labor Day weekend.

  • MadJoe

    That’s great news for T-Mo Note 8 buyers! I had to get mine through Samsung to take advantage of the Note 7 owner’s discount, so I’m a little jealous at how quickly you guys are getting yours, but for the discount I got those 2 weeks extra wait will be worth it.

    • Petey07

      I’m a bit jealous too since I also purchased directly through Samsung for the Note 7 owner’s discount. But I’m also on the borderline of wanting to cancel my order to see what the next iPhone has to offer. But it nice for those to receive their phone first and test it out… If there any issues, i would have time to still cancel it if the phone hasn’t ship yet Lol.

      • MadJoe

        I’ve loved the iPhone hardware since the 6, but iOS and iTunes work in conjunction to make me hate the iPhone experience to the point that I won’t ever own one.

        • Petey07

          I’m stuck in the Apple ecosystem Lol, i have my iPad, my work macbook air and this iphone which I’ll be upgrading to the Note 7. I do like Apple for what they provide and bring to the table (it can be boring, but the stability and polish software which attracts me), but I also like Samsung & Android as well.

      • Wiseguyy007

        No…not gonna happen..you’ll get your N8 two days after Tmo delivers they are only separated by a day or two at the most.

    • Wiseguyy007

      Really…you think Tmo will ship in one or two days from this post??….NOT.
      Sammy will ship one or two days after Tmo does Trust and Believe these words.

      • MadJoe

        I’m sure you’re right after reading posts by those who preordered the Note 7, but at the time I posted that I was just happy for the people I thought were about to receive their phones. T-Mobile has had a decent track record of releasing early, so even though it’s only ever been a day or two, I was ready to believe this time was different.

        • Wiseguyy007

          They can’t break the Sammy agreement on prerelease

        • MadJoe

          With T-Mo’s track record of releasing Samsung devices days before the competition, I figure they have an early release agreement with Samsung, but like I said, you’re probably right because this would be way earlier than usual.

        • Wiseguyy007

          Any device I have done is one day prior to sammy

        • Wiseguyy007

          besides that you are always better off buying Sammy Unlocked it has greater value in the resale market. When I sell my flawless device and move up to the next one I sell on Swappa for maximum dollar value.

        • noh1bvisas

          TMO will unlock your phone for free (and very quickly) upon request when you pay off your phone.

  • bkat11

    Am I the only one T-mobile waived the shipping fee on????

    • MadJoe

      I sure hope not, I’ve never paid T-Mobile a shipping or upgrade fee and no one else should either.

      • bkat11

        Some got their credit card charged for shipping

        • MadJoe

          My guess is that their being charged the down payment ($210) and taxes, not a shipping charge.

        • Robert Mauro

          Yup, $210 down, taxes for full price.

        • Ruben Gabriel Montez

          If you go to a retailer you can get it 0 down…upgrading through the web portal or calling t mobile and you’ll have to pay the 210 down payment

        • Robert Mauro

          Eligibility varies, based on a number of factors. Besides, I wanted to pre-pay a portion to keep my monthly bills lower. I could have done zero down on the website with slightly better credit.

        • mreveryphone

          Mine was for shipping.

        • MadJoe

          Unless you opted for expedited shipping, you shouldn’t have been charged for shipping.

    • Chef

      Waived mine

  • Sergio Bobillo

    My card just got billed for the Note 8 this morning. Wow

  • Elmer Estrada

    Got my card billed today

  • Nathaniel Gates

    i did the Note 7 owner’s trade in (unlocked). Website says shipping 9/11.

  • Gregory Durham

    It’s nothing new I have received a few devices from T-Mobile about 2 weeks before the release date

  • Joseph Guy

    got my tracking number today

    • Mike

      No way!!!! Now I’m jealous

    • Joseph Guy

      I see if my tracking shows any updates in an day or two

  • Mike

    I think it’s funny that’s it’s posted everywhere that mobile is gonna get they’re phones the 13th, earlier than everyone else!!! When I got it through sprint and 2 days later got a similar email saying that my order was processed and will ship Sept. 5th. Lol with my overnight shipping I’ve have it the 6th. Hell, it even says right on sprints website for preorders that devices start shipping the 5th. Where is the blog article about that??

    • thirstypirate

      Maybe on SprintmoNews

  • Ruben Gabriel Montez

    I got mine through Tmobile…Got the jump on demand lease option, lets you upgrade 3x a year after 30 days because i’m not going to pay a grand for this phone…i’ll just upgrade again

    • noh1bvisas

      you be paying a grand, eventually

      • Jeffrey Mele

        Not exactly, he can always “jump” to a significantly cheaper device.

        Normally on verizon I’d buy for $960 which is $40 x 24 in payments. I’d also have to put down $85 in taxes. I’d be able to upgrade at any time after paying off half the phone which is effectively $480 + $85 at minimum.

        So, if I wanted to upgrade in 4 months I’d of put down $85, paid 4 X $40 monthly bills and would have to PAY verizon $320 and give the phone back to be eligible to get a new one. (so $565 for 4 months if anyone is counting).

        T-mobile wants $0 down, $0 upfront for taxes(as it’s a lease) and I can upgrade at any time after 30 days by just giving the phone back. So if I want to upgrade in 4 months my only cost will of been 4 months of the phones payment being $160. Tell me how I’m paying a grand eventually? The JoD deal is a no brainer if you like to swap phones, like myself.

        And Ruben, jump on demand is not limited to 3 upgrades a year anymore, it’s as many as you want as long as they are 30 days apart.

        • noh1bvisas

          you keep paying and paying and paying… it’s nice not having payments.

        • Jeffrey Mele

          Having payments doesn’t bear on the deal, I could buy the phone for $930 and keep having no payments like I have right now. For someone like me who can’t make up his mind and will always want to change phones there is no cheaper method to being able to swap back and forth on a whim without having to lay out hundreds of dollars at a time in order to do so. It’s absolutely a no brainer for me and 100% cheaper in the short & long term than if I were to go out and buy these things outright.

          JoD is simply leasing, for the exact amount of money it would of cost to buy the device, or finance the device, simply with the option to trade in whenever while returning the phone.

          Again, if I want out of the phone in two months, I’m out the $80 I spent in lease payments and the rest gets wiped out. If I want to keep the phone for 2 years I’ll end up spending the exact same regardless of if I finance with EIP, lease with JoD or buy the damn thing outright.

          The idea that you’ll be paying a grand eventually may be true, but by the time I’m actually out a grand I’ll probably of been through 6-8 phones.

        • Wanny Pena

          yes but theres no value to it. youve had 6-8 phones that you no longer have. what i always do is buy the phone upfront and resell the following year. i always get good value for it.

        • Angel Nieves

          If I wanted to start doing that, I’d have to come up with $930+tax=$995. I wouldn’t be able to come up with a grand cash to put down on a phone. Even if I had say a Note 5 that I fully owned and would want to sell, I’d have to deal with listing it on a site, shipping it and waiting to get the money or meeting up with a stranger to sell it to them. After 4 months if I don’t want to keep paying the monthly payments to lease the Note 8, I could even switch to the Revvl and pay $5/mth. I think the idea of buying it out right and selling it later to upgrade may be good to someone who doesn’t switch phones frequently, maybe once every 15 months.

        • Jeffrey Mele

          So you’re assuming that what I’m doing is bad, because I’ll be out the $930 or whatever it is over the course of basically two years, but you’re saying that you normally would buy a phone outright for cash and then sell it in a year. I still honestly don’t understand what the difference is, but I do understand why it’s more appeasing to some people. You are essentially tricking yourself into thinking you have value at the end.

          So I’ll use this as an example.

          You buy a note 8 today for $930 cash + tax, so $1010 for me in my area. In a year, you decide to sell it and you get what I would assume to be 50-60% back(being very generous here with 60% in calculations). So you get 60% of $930 back at $550. You lose $460, but you have $550 cash in your hand.

          You also have no phone, so you now need to go out and do it all over again. blah blah assume the same scenario and at the end of the second year you sell a $930 note 9 for $550. Again, you have no phone and $550 cash in hand, but you lost another $460.

          So, at the end of the second year, you have $550 cash in hand and no phone. However, you still spent $2020 buying devices outright over those two years, and with the $550 you have in your hand you only got $1100 back. Congrats, you lost $920 which I still consider generous as 60% return is a lot to expect on anything other than an iphone. You only have the $550 of “value” in your hand because you paid so much upfront.

          Lets use my example. I just leased a note 8 for $39 a month + tax. So $42 a month.

          After 12 months I’ve spent $504. I decide I want the new note 9, I call up t-mobile and pre order it. I put nothing down and assume the same scenario. 12 more months go by and $504 is gone again. I’m out $1008. So almost $90 more than you in this hypothetical.

          The difference is for $90 I get the benefit of not having to sell two phones, deal with ebay/craigslist AND have the ability to switch whenever I desire to another device if I decide I don’t like whatever phone I currently have. Still out roughly the same money, but have way less headache dealing with the disposal of two phones over the course of two years.

        • Angel Nieves

          I have the Jump On Demand as well. I like the flexibility of switching to a new phone every 30 days. I can’t pay out of pocket $930, so I think it’s the best option for people that want to have the latest phone. I actually have a line that I am thinking of using for testing out phones and having the Galaxy Note 8 as my main phone. I took advantage of an old promo 4 lines for $120. The main thing I love about JOD is you can walk in and walk out without paying anything on a phone. I know that’s going to change next year, and you’d have to make a down payment on some phones.

  • Shanita

    So excited I have a tracking number and it shows shipped as of this evening 530pm.

    • Billy_Boy2019

      Nice, I know I usually forget about this page once I receive my phone, please once you get the phone tomorrow give us a mini review either Sat/Sun if you can, thanks!

      • Shanita

        I will as soon as I receive it!

        • Billy_Boy2019

          Rgr and thanks!

    • mreveryphone

      I have the same thing but just a label created. Do you see any movement?

      • Shanita

        No movement as of yet:(

        • mreveryphone

          Me either :(

    • Mike

      What movement does ups show?

  • Angel Nieves

    The TMobile status page says “shipped.” I hope they really ship it. I also got an email with the IMEI.

    • Billy_Boy2019

      Nice, I know I usually forget about this page once I receive my phone, please once you get the phone tomorrow give us a mini review either Sat or Sun if you can, thanks!

  • Adam Fine

    They did the same thing with the Note 7. But it did not ship till the date it was supposed to originally.

  • mreveryphone

    Mine says shipped as well but no movement. Only label created…

  • Ike Williams

    Yep mine shipped too

  • And then UPS will hold it hostage for two weeks…

    • Ronald Nave

      I’m thinking so

  • Label created. Waiting for it to arrive at UPS. Card charged. I’m guessing it arrives on Wednesday, here why: Massive shipment from Korea take a couple of days to move through to UPS. They get the phones to UPS over the next day or two, UPS has long weekend to sort, ships overnight Tuesday after the holiday.

  • Mark Cafiero

    I’m with AT&T and order status showed a shipment date of Sept 5

      Thinking of switching to T-mobile??

    • Ronald Nave

      Me too, and preparing to ship right ?

  • Mike

    Got mine through sprint, received tracking info last night, will keep posted on when movement and arrival at home happen

    • mreveryphone

      Yes, keep us posted.

    • curiousfox

      Thinking of switching to T-mobile?

    • samsung freud

      Hey, does sprint charge an extra 20 bucks for upgrading to a new phone?
      or for a sim card that you don’t need when upgrading to said phone?

      • Mike

        Sprint charges a $36 fee for upgrades. So stop complaining about Tmobile $20 upgrade fee when Tmobile is charging the least.

        • samsung freud

          It’s still wrong, and if you call customer service they’ll quickly
          credit the account.

        • SK

          I was charged as well for both shipping (on jump line) and the sim kit for the new line. I have been told it will be credited once all is settled.

        • Mike

          Not really depends on who u talk to and how long u been with Sprint. Otherwise $36 upgrade fee will stick.

  • Josué Armenta-Marquéz

    per order mine on the 8/24/17 from Tmobile. got a messages on 8/29/17 that its being packed. i got charged as well. and got an update from ups that label has been created. as of today 8/31/17 i got a message from ups that its being shipped.

  • carlos quintanilla

    Saw this with my note 7. Its gets packed, ready to shipped, label created and billed. Ups pickup will be closer to resale date.

  • THXULTRA

    UPS label was created and card charged… T-mobile site shows shipped and I have my iemi number. Still hasn’t left UPS. Will be great if we get them early.

    • Anne

      I just looked on TMobile’s site and don’t see the iemi number for the new phone. Where did you find it?

      • THXULTRA

        It was in a e-mail sent by T-Mobile with my equipment agreement update for Jump On Demand.

  • David

    Seeing as how in order to get the gifts you have to use the shop Samsung app on the actual Note 8, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are delivered ahead of time.

  • My card was just charged too, so psyched to get my new Note. Getting early just make it all the sweeter.

  • Billy_Boy2019

    I took advantage of the BOGO offer this morning at 0445hrs. It was a really smooth process. At 0830hrs I called T-Mobile just to verify that all went thru, while talking to the rep I learned some new things, shout out to ALL who stated that you can cancel the line you have to open to take advantage of the BOGO deal, it’s 100% true. Before I asked, the rep said it he said, “Once you get the MasterCard you can call in to cancel the line” this was at the beginning of our conversation. He proceeded with opening a new line (As of right now I have 7 active lines) and in the reps recap of all the transactions we did I asked, “I can definitely cancel the line once I receive the MasterCard”, his response was, “Absolutely”.

    Also, the 6 to 8 weeks to when you receive the MasterCard starts the day you receive the first phone.

    Lastly, the rep stated to definitely have the funds available in your account on the 13th! I hope this helps someone out ✌✌

    • Lawren Pelling

      I’m thinking about preordering with T-mobile but already have two lines and have no need for another one. Can I cancel one of my preexisting lines and just get a new one? I remember a rep telling me that would be considered as fraudulent.

      • Billy_Boy2019

        That’s exactly what I would have done if that T-Mobile CSR didn’t say what he did say to me. In fact, that’s what I may do once I do get the MasterCard so I don’t have any problems. As long as that line that you are canceling wasn’t gotten in a promo deal you will be fine

  • Ron Hussey

    Pre-Ordered 2 note 8’s 8/24, card was charged 8/31, got tracking number 2 days ago. it says shipped, but no tracking info yet.

  • universalpcservices

    We got charged as well and gave them a call, they told us that the phones have not shipped and that they did not have an eta as to when they would ship. All they told us was that they had the phones and they were in the warehouse ready to ship.

  • mreveryphone

    My Samsung order I did with the note 7 appreciation price has shipped with movement. So our carrier orders should be shipping as well…

    • Nicolas Lalaurette

      When did you placed you order?

      • mreveryphone

        August 25th

        • Nicolas Lalaurette

          I placed my order on the 26th. My email from Samsung said it would be shipped on the 11th. Did you get a shipping confirmation email from Samsung or you just happened to check your order status? I hope mine gets shipped soon, I have the screen protector and case just sitting on my desk.

        • mreveryphone

          Shipment confirmation email.

        • Nicolas Lalaurette

          Any movement on your phone today? Did samsung added a reference number to your tracking page on ups.com? I’m so frustrated seeing a lot of movement and I didn’t even received a shipped email lol

  • Laciel

    Sprint and Verizon customers are being notify that their note8 will be deliver tomorrow, step up your game t-mobile.

    • universalpcservices

      Well I guess that sucks for us t-mobile customers.

      • Adrienne Deering

        It sure does suck!! :(

    • Shanita

      Im happy for Sprint and Verizon customers maybe Tmobile will have some movement today

      • THXULTRA

        I’m hoping the same that our phones show movement with UPS today. Good luck to sprint customers they will have a sweet phone they can’t use because it is on a crappy network :)

        • mreveryphone

          HAHAHAHAHA!

        • universalpcservices

          LMAO

      • Laciel

        Mine shipped just now, changed from 9/15 to 9/5, that’s why it’s good to have competitions, consumer always wins in this scenario :)

  • Jessica Clark

    Mine is being delivered today. Im with tmobile

    • mreveryphone

      NICE!!!

    • Alex P.

      That is awesome!
      Mine is ‘Ready for UPS’ since Aug 31.

      • universalpcservices

        Same here. Since august 30th.

      • nycplayboy78

        SAME HERE….August 30…SIGH…

    • THXULTRA

      Wow you must live right by the UPS distribution center.

    • Jessica Clark

      Says delivery by end of day today but do not say on vehicle for delivery. So now I’m unsure

      • Guillermo Eduardo Ortega-ibarr

        It’s just mean you wont get it ups make deliver day base on label creation day sorry to burst your bubble

    • Alex P.

      Did you receive it?

  • Shanita

    At&t customers are getting their phones starting today and tomorrow according to 9to5 google.

  • Shanita

    There are Verizon and Sprint customers who have received their phones today. I’m really disappointed with Tmobile:(

  • nycplayboy78

    SIGH…My 3-Day Select UPS shipping label has been created since 8/30 and as of 9/5 still nothing…It is coming from T-Mobile in Louisville, KY to my house….I have read on Phandroid and other Android sites that other carriers are getting their Note 8 phones today or later this week :/

    • THXULTRA

      Some Verizon and Sprint people are getting them today. Curious why T-Mobile hasn’t shipped. Could be they haven’t received the phones from Samsung, hard to say the exact reason. Hoping ours ship soon :)

    • universalpcservices

      I can tell you that they do have the phones. I got this info from some people we know that work for them. They simply have not shipped them even though their own website says that we aren’t charged till the items are shipped.

      Check their website on their preorder and how it works page.

  • note8hunter

    Has anyone goten their note yet? T mobile specially. has anyones shiped?

    • Shanita

      No movement yet and I spoke with a Tmobile representative today and she said that the only thing she can say is that our phones will be shipped by the 15th of Sept.

      • note8hunter

        well that sucksi was really hoping

      • THXULTRA

        Haven’t seen any movement either… Was reading on their facebook page that they were going to start shipping today. So far haven’t heard of anyone’s shipping though.

      • RoTTeNKiD

        I just got off phone with T Mobile phones are being shipped starting today

        • Shanita

          Awesome I hope to see movement soon

    • Dante Farrar

      My cousin just sent me a picture of her VZW Note 8 that arrived today… I’d rather not have any shipping information if it hasn’t shipped/moved! What’s the point? I’ve had a tracking number since the 31st, for what…

      • note8hunter

        I agree. i got mine the 1st and it just a giant tease.

        • Dante Farrar

          Useless

  • Selig

    It’s sitting at my Verizon store but they can’t sell it to me until the 15th……very unhappy

  • Shanita

    My status just got updated my Note ships today! I will keep an eye out to see if it has movement later this evening. I went from shipping 9/13 to 9/5. Check your tmobile status.

    • note8hunter

      lucky. mine is till waiting for ups

      • Shanita

        Did your shipping date change on your mytmobile website or app?

        • note8hunter

          nope. still says 13-15 on mytmobile. but my tracking number says it waiting on ups. i hate waiting

        • RoTTeNKiD

          mine just changed in last 30 minutes

    • Calgrav24

      Mine updated today also to shipping 9/5. Hoping to see movement from UPS tonight as well. All of my previous preorders would get movement from UPS between 9pm and 10:30pm PST on the day it actually ships out.

    • daniel

      Mine too, says shipping today.

  • Brian

    I order my N8 on 9/3 over the phone. TMO charged my card today for the phone. So now I’m playing the waiting game . Shipping 9/13… My mom received her N8 from Sprint this morning. It looks amazing..

  • Lincoln Mead

    I received my notice on the 1st along with a tracking number. That’s the good news. According to UPS it has been saying ‘Order Processed: Ready for UPS’ since then so I am curbing my enthusiasm for an early arrival.

  • RoTTeNKiD

    My T-Mobile just changed shipping day from 9/13 to 9/5. This changed within the last 30 minutes. Still no UPS info except label was made

  • illmarine23

    T mobile site damn near crashed from all the people calling in and talking to people. But the dates changed… to bad that dont mean anything till ups picks it up

  • ch4yboy

    Finally seeing some movement! Just got an origin scan and ups mychoice is telling me it is in transit and will be at my house tomorrow!!

    • Shanita

      Im happy for you Im still waiting for status change :(

  • universalpcservices

    Here is what just showed up on the UPS site, not T-Mobile but the actual UPS

    Scheduled Delivery:

    Wednesday, 09/06/2017 , by 3:00 P.M. (by end of day for residential deliveries)
    Last Location:

    Louisville, KY, United States, Tuesday, 09/05/2017

  • tommest

    Both my att and tmobile galaxy note 8 shipped today.

  • illmarine23

    I would like to thank everyone that called, messaged, and helped shut the tmobile site down, so they got off their ass and got the notes moving. Thank you. Thank you all

    • Shanita

      Im sure that they were tired of us calling in yesterday and I think Im going to call today if I don’t see some change in status it said it shipped yesterday but UPS is still the same.

      • illmarine23

        mine is out on the truck heading to my house now. Did you have the next day delivery?

        • Shanita

          Awesome! No unfortunately I did 3 day:( snail mail…lol

        • illmarine23

          i think we know why now sadly. but a day late is better than 9 days right

  • samsung freud

    I just saw this unboxing posted at youtube of the note 8.
    The sim card is a tmobile card, so someone got theirs.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76w1d5YEqg8

  • Joseph Guy

    scheduled delivery tomorrow

    • Shanita

      Happy for you

  • Sergio Bobillo

    Just got an Email from T-Mobile & UPS saying that the phone shipped and I will get the Note 8 Tomorrow by 8 AM to 3 PM…

    • Shanita

      Awesome! I hope to see a status update today or maybe even a delivery would be even better…lol

  • Calgrav24

    Just checked UPS, it says in-transit on time. Scheduled for delivery tomorrow between 9:30am and 1:30pm. I think they must have updated all the orders to Next day air because mine originally said 3 day select shipping.

    • Shanita

      I havent seen any movement with UPS as of yet:(

      • Tony Holland

        Me too. Shipped date updated to 9/5 but no UPS movement :-(

        • THXULTRA

          Me too and I preordered august 31st right when preorders were started.

        • Shanita

          Check your status now. I have movement as of 1248pm. Delivery set for Friday

        • THXULTRA

          Awesome know you were waiting… Still waiting on mine. They claimed it is going out today. I will believe it when I see it.

  • Elmer Estrada

    9/6/17 the note 8 will be delivered

  • 16309

    I placed my order on Saturday. My message went from processing since then to out for delivery today!! Woo Hoo!!!

    • 16309

      Got it!!

  • THXULTRA

    Ordered mine right when preorders went live and no movement. Look at my t-mobile and says shipping 9-5 but nothing showing on the ups site. grr

    • Shanita

      I just got off the phone with the Tmobile rep and she said that shipments have started going out and they are going out in waves:(. She said my phone will be delivered by Monday at the latest:(.

      • THXULTRA

        Ya kind of bummed though that I ordered in the first hour and people that ordered after me are getting theirs shipped. 1st world problems I know but still frustrating.

        • Alex P.

          I am waiting for two Note 8s. The one I ordered on Aug 29th has been ‘Ready for UPS’ since the 31st. Another one I ordered on Sep 2nd was shipped on the 5th and will be delivered on the 9th. The first phone will be delivered the last. Wow!

        • THXULTRA

          Ya and those are going to the same address I’m sure. So much for shipping them in the order people preordered. I didn’t care about Verizon customers getting them before us because there could be reasons for that but other T-mobile customers that ordered later having theirs shipped first isn’t right.

        • Mike

          lol I ordered Aug 30th JOD and I got my phone today and I got free ground shipping,

  • Angel Nieves

    My Galaxy Note 8 has arrived! I ordered on the 24th and requested overnight shipping.

  • Will

    I pre-ordered mine yesterday. Today I got notification that my order has shipped. I didn’t want to pony up for UPS next day, so mine is on 3 day ground, but if I did, I guess that means I’d have mine by Sept 7??

    • Mike

      I paid for ground on 9/30 and I got mines Today. I’m only a few hours away from Kentucky where Tmobile ships from.

      • mreveryphone

        Wow!! You paid for shipping in the future and got it today?? That’s some serious movement!

  • mreveryphone

    My UPS status just updated from label created to a delivery date of Friday 9/8… Looks like things are happening in waves. My Samsung order is being delivered on Thurs Sept 7th…

    • Nicolas Lalaurette

      I’m still waiting for samsung to send me any updates, all I have is my confirmation email from the 26th.

      • mreveryphone

        My tmo and sammy order updated almost simultaneously. You should hopefully see some movement today.

        • Nicolas Lalaurette

          I’m just hoping to at least get a tracking number. I guess I shouldn’t complaint since I got the phone for almost 50% off for being a former Note7 owner.

        • mreveryphone

          Right! I’m thinking about jumping my tmo note 8 to the iPhone 8 and keeping my Sammy note 8 since it’s paid off.

    • Shanita

      Same here my status states delivery 9/8. Im happy will be even happier if it comes tomorrow:)!

      • mreveryphone

        Right… They need to just deliver it tomorrow since it’s been sitting for so long…

        • Mike

          No they shouldn’t because mines came today and I wanna brag for another day.

  • John Kim

    Woohoo! I ordered 3 day ground shipping and got a UPS notification that it will be delivered by end of day today!

  • Mike

    I just got my Note 8 it came next day even tho I paid for ground shipping the agent told me paying for overnight shipping was useless since it’s a preorder transaction.

    • Adrienne Deering

      Yea got mine today too and you’re right about the shipping because I only paid 6.99 for 3 day shipping. The rep at the store told me not to waste money on fast shipping because regardless of which type shipping you choose they all get shipped out together next day and people who pay for 3 day shipping will get it the same day as those who paid for overnight ;)

      • Mike

        Tmobile made a quick buck off the customers who paid for faster shipping lol.

        • THXULTRA

          Think it depends on how close you are to the distribution center. I did the three day and it is coming Friday.

        • Adrienne Deering

          They sure did!! I’m glad I was warned before I paid extra for shipping :D

  • THXULTRA

    Another Batch ships… Finally movement!!!

    • Shanita

      Awesome!

  • Chef

    Just. Got. My. Note. 8. And it’s very nice.

  • universalpcservices

    Got mine in the mail today.

  • pdotc

    Got mine today too and I love it.

  • illmarine23

    got mine last night as i was leaving for work… damn ups. but i got it. All black never looked so good

  • KshitijAnil Rangari

    Anyone received the Unlocked Version ?, I ordered on 30 August, still awaiting any update on that one
