T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 units begin arriving for pre-order customers

galaxynote9preorder

The Galaxy Note 9 doesn’t officially launch for a couple more days, but some lucky T-Mobile pre-order customers are getting their new phone today.

TmoNews reader Adam received his Galaxy Note 9 from UPS today, and he sent along a couple photos showing off his new piece of kit. As you can see, he chose the Ocean Blue model that comes with a yellow S Pen, and the color combo looks pretty nice.

T-Mobile has a history of shipping new phones to pre-order customers ahead of their official launch dates, so it’s not surprising to see the Galaxy Note 9 hitting customers’ hands ahead of August 24th. It is still exciting, though, especially for those folks who did pre-order the Note 9 and are receiving their shiny new phone a couple of days ahead of the general launch date.

Galaxy Note 9 pre-order customers, keep an eye on your tracking info, because it could be coming today. Once your Note 9 is in your hands, be sure to share your first impressions with us!

Thanks, Adam!

  • shashi

      How did you choose the gift?

      • shashi

        While making purchase on Samsung site. For phone bought from T-mobile, you have to download samsung shop app and register your phone.

  • corepreacher

    I just got mine and did an easy data transfer from my note 8. Easily a great upgrade. The speakers alone are 100x better. Then add S-pen features, better camera, better processor, better battery and 400 trade in credit and free wireless AKG headphones that retail for $300. It was a no brainer. I got 128Gb Blue and loving it

        If you did the preorder you should be good. Just open the shop Samsung app and it will show you what to do. You dont even have to submit a receipt

      • Manbearpig

        They would mail them. You redem through the app

  • Keith I Myers

    To those who have gotten theirs – did you order the 128 GB or 512?

    • mreveryphone

      128gb

    • Derrick B.

      Spoke to TMO rep yesterday as I got a text stating that my shipping date had changed and I was told all the 512GB devices were delayed in inventory. New shipping date is not until 9/19-9/26 WTF?!

      • Keith I Myers

        I got the same text but that is the first I am hearing that it was delayed by a month. I will call T-Mobile in a bit to see if I get the same. When did you place your order? I did mine on August 11th

        • Derrick B.

          Ordered on the 13th

      Are you inside the app on note 9,in the inbox
      I’m still waiting for delivery and currently on another phone, and this option isn’t there
      So hoping it will show up on Note 9

      • mreveryphone

        It’s easiest done on the note 9. The app automatically recognizes your phone and you don’t have to upload a pic of your order

  • shack180

    Anyone knows if you pick up the note 9 from tmobile store on launch day if the give you the free headphones ??. Or do they mail it out ??

  • Dave Lane

    Got the Note 9 yesterday and got the free gifts registered easily in the Samsung app on the device. Ordered both the headphones and the Fortnite items – only issue with the Fortnite items is that you don’t seem to get the digital offer until the headphones ship. But, the phone is great. Anyone know if the Tmobile 512GB variant came with two stylii? There was an unbox video I saw of the 512 showed two pens, but it was unlocked. I got the 128 but considering exchanging for the 512
