    It says available at the store 9/22 in your screen shot.

    Yes, agreed, but the "Select Button" was light blue, you can't click it..no way to add it the cart to purchase. To the left it says "availability = unavailable" so I could not order.. I could only go into a store on 9/22 and hope to have one available there. So I could not pre-order that way.

    I have T-Mobile and I don't have tracking yet. Just a card charge.

    I don’t like it this way. Last year and all the previous years were more fun.
    Seeing it from China, coming this way.

    Like NORAD tracking Santa.
    Love the NORAD analogy . I feel the exact same way.

    It shipped! Via next day air saver? Does that typically deliver by a certain time?

    Sadly seems AT&T is having issues with orders. I ordered on pre-order night, was done by 12:10am PST. Been saying on the AT&T site: Order status: Preparing to ship. Been that way for 2-3-days.. Now after getting a Text from AT&T the items / 8+ are on back order and there is no date to ship yet. So no idea if/when getting my phone. Will call them tomorrow, cancel the order and then see about getting one in store on Friday.. Oh well...

    What!??? That’s BS! It must be a mistake. I ordered same time, same item, same carrier and I just got an email saying item shipped, it has left Ft. Worth TX at 7:34 pm, will be at my house by 3. I bet it was some weird glitch

    That would probably force me to the Note 8. I could see if you ordered today, but the morning of pre-order. Of course I have little patience for waiting lol

    I didn’t get ATT tracking info until 4am this morning. They’re shipping overnight which is typically. Mine were sitting in progress all week. So until they’ve changed your shipping date on your order I wouldn’t cancel. Just because the site isn’t updated with the info doesn’t mean it’s not making progress. I understand the uncertainty makes it frustrating but if you don’t have tracking by today OR they change the delivery date on your order then I would cancel. Until then, I’d give it a little more time.

    Normally I would agree.. I have ordered since the 3S (got the in store) 4,4S, 5, (5S in store), (6 in store), 7.. and now the 8+. This is the first time I got a text saying back ordered. But will see what happens.

    Oh well yeah if your item is backordered and no ship date then cancel. Shouldn’t have any issues finding one tomorrow. Good luck.

    For those who were worried about their phones still being in PA, mine is showing that it departed PA about 10 minutes ago. So things are on the move.

    I can go intercept for you guys haha. That UPS is about a mile from where I am now. Whenever I order stuff I always wish I could just pick it up there instead of waiting another day for it to get to my house.

    Sign up for UPS My Choice and have it held. Or is the location just a warehouse?

    It could be held there, I have done that in the past. Good call for those that didn't know about that though.

    It's held at the main UPS location. There is an office for customer service at each one of those locations. Expect long lines, but depending on city size, YMMV.
