Ordered early on, blue and 'ship to home'. I have not yet received an email with a tracking number, but putting my cell # into the reference field on UPS did pull up a tracking number, which says it's out for delivery. So even if you haven't gotten a 'shipped' email from anyone, check the UPS site and you may get better information.
(Now to hope the UPS driver arrives earlier than their usual 6pm.)
It's definitely a bummer that we don't get to enjoy the same perks as our neighbors down south. Hopefully there's something in the pipelines for us Canadian users **fingers crossed**.
Although we encourage a healthy debate please keep in mind to keep things courteous as not all of our partners frequent our Community as you do .

Happy Note 8 launch day . Keep us posted with the feedback.
Preordered online as SHIP TO HOME, phone just arrived at my house by UPS. Funny thing was, when I echat a rep yesterday I was told there's ZERO percent chance that it will arrive today.
Got tired of waiting so I called my local store and indeed they receive it. Just haven't gotten around to calling people I guess. 6pm can't come soon enough (or might leave work early - ha).
Also worth noting, I'm going to pay $899 for the phone and go on the $75 Smart Tab. Currently paying $80/mth now. So in 2 years I'll save $120.
So $899-120 = $779 for the phone.
Compared to $95/mth for $549 which works out to +15/mth x 24 mths = $360+$549=$909 for the phone.
