Just wanted to point out that yesterday it showed the phone as being $349 (or $399) with the $549 crossed out and faded. But today it's back to $549. So there is an upcoming promotion of $349 (or $399) at some point in the future and they glitched and released it too early yesterday. Hopefully when we go to pick up the phones, that will be the new promo.
I'm in line!
I think it said number 127 this morning when I reserved. I however cannot see anything about where I am in line right now or any sort of confirmation about my note 8.
I already signed up on the Samsung website for the free wireless charger and SD card too.
September 15th cannot arrive soon enough....
how did you sign up on Samsung site? i cant find smn950 as model number
Time is going to be a factor for me, since I'll be visiting family in a different province on launch day Sept 15 and through to the 19th, at which point I have a trip out of the country. My Note 4 is rebooting (if I'm lucky; sometimes I have to let it sit with the battery out before I can try restarting) several times per day, so I really kind of need the Note 8 asap.
The Rogers FAQ states:
"Will I get my device faster by picking up at store or shipping to home?
You will receive your device faster by paying today and having your device shipped to your home than by waiting to pick up and pay at a store. It’s also more convenient!"
Has it been people's experience that this is true? My concern with shipping is that if it doesn't arrive on Fri. 15th, then I've only got Mon/Tues for it to arrive since carriers won't deliver on the weekend. I can visit a store to pick it up over the weekend, though. And, if I choose shipping to home but am staying with family, can I even specify a different shipping address? (Because that might look kind of sketchy to the system.)
What do people suggest in this situation? Shipping to home or store? Do I get a family member to reserve one on *their* Rogers account, so that if by chance I have to leave the country before it arrives, at least they can take possession of the phone?
My Note 4 is barely kicking, and I'm really going to need a new phone before I leave. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
