No way. The store said exactly that.
I was wondering though lol... I did the form onthe samsung site (which anyone could do really, there's no identifying information other than order date and what store you ordered from. No receipt number, no phone information, nothing...) and thought "why the heck can't I cancel my reservation and pick up in store".
So you're saying since I PO through corporate, I got my notification, I went to samsung and registered with my account, I can cancel my online status and go to the one across the street that said they'd do it but I'd lose my preorder bonus.
I went through all this on friday haha, jeez, didn't know I had the chance to get it.
I put 2 on hold near me. Will pick them up after work today at 1915 and see if everything works out. I assumed it would. Oh well. Missed out on wedding this weekend I was in with a nicer camera, meh.
Wife and I got our note 8's last night. Cancelled pre orders this morning. Got the congratulations registration email from samsung. I'm hoping and assuming PO bonuses will come through.
SMS and MMS texts and phone calls wouldn't come in after we got our phones home. Updated to new software let them sit overnight and restarted this AM and working now.
Phone is miraculous. Usually on my note edge I'd lose 8-11% of my battery life during my morning poop. Today I pooped then ate breakfast all while using my phone (yes I washed my hands after) and lost ONLY 1 PERCENT during the whole time. Amazing.
