I don't know. I'm starting to think that the warehouse just created the shipping labels too early.  

hmmm You may be right about this. Just checked this morning and the same status "A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status will be updated." hasn't change.  Yet it also says estimated delivery 9/1/2017 by end of day. 

Things that make you say hmmm.

I think that's just because the labels were created on 8/30 and they are being sent out 2 day air. Ups just put a delivery date 2 days after the setup.

Maybe others will be lucky, but my status has changed from scheduled delivery of today to Tuesday Sept 5. Which sucks since there won't be anyone home to sign for it. ugh.

No worries, I will sit at your front door on Sept 5 and accept it.  And the best thing is that you will never see me or the phone again.

Sadly, I had that exact kind of thing happen to me when I was teenager. One my parents' independent living clients signed for a hard drive (person didn't even know what it was) and took it to their room. The only way I found out was a care worker saw it and told.

It seems like forcing someone someone to be there to sign is no real protection against theft.

TBH, I haven't even looked at the capability of the Snapdragon 845 or whatever it is that's in the Note 8...

I assume that it's HPUE capable, and has 2CA up and down? 

 

If I'm understanding the CA correctly, current devices are 2x CA on downlink, and 1x CA on uplink?

 

I thought I saw somewhere that the 845 does do 2CA uplink and downlink, but i could be wrong.

I'm sure someone who knows for sure will chime in...

I think the device is capable of 4x CA. The network is not running 4x though.

Got my tracking number this morning.

 

Direct from Samsung for the unlocked version. Freebies have the same tracking number so they will be together!

 

Says 2 business days so I am guessing Thursday accounting for the holiday.

So I set up my camera to watch the front door and my better half stayed home to sign the packages this morning. Noticed a few UPS guys come to the door to deliver packages, but none from Sprint. But just now, another one came and bam, its from Sprint. The Notes have arrived. Too bad I won't have time to play with them today since after work i have a concert to go to and will get back late, but tomorrow with be Note Exploring Day for me. :)

More and more reports are coming in from Galaxy Note 8 community members on Google Plus about receiving the device today the 5th of September and they're all CDMA customers.

 

Well BGR and Tech websites you were wrong, T-Mobile will not be the first to hand their customers the Galaxy Note 8 after all.

Instead of setting at your front door waiting for your Notes, I stopped the UPS truck down the street and turned the inventory of the truck inside out.   Somehow I must have missed the package I was looking for.  I slowed down the entire load, but you got lucky that I could not find the package.

I just checked the status of it and found out they left it at my garage 40 minutes ago. So much for them absolutely requiring a signature.

    • I think they stay. Shentel and T-Mobile are in negotiations about either acquisition or affiliation.
    • I wonder what happened to the Boost stores in Shentel land.
    • Hey folks, I haven't been around here in a long time. I guess I just got distracted by other things, especially after Sprint 4G LTE became commonly available for me.   Then, in February of 2018, I defected from Sprint to T-Mobile. That move allowed me to get on the "T-Mobile ONE 55+" plan, (yeah, I'm an old geezer) and at the time, grab a limited time offer add-on called "ONE Plus International" that adds a lot of features, but most importantly "UNLIMITED 4G LTE Hotspot" on a phone.   The move was both for the service and price. I was paying Sprint $179 for service on one phone, and one USB 3G modem. The modem was what kept me with Sprint for so long. I bought it in 2007, when mobile data was just starting to catch on in popularity. Everyone else had low data caps and high overage charges at the time, but, Sprint was slow to jump on that bandwagon. They even had an ad campaign at the time, something like: "Use all the data you want, have fun"! I bought the modem outright, and paid $59.99/mo for unlimited 3G data. As an over the road truck driver, at the time, that was the same price I paid Comcast for home Internet, that was hardly home to use. I canceled Comcast, and that USB thing became my only non-phone Internet connection.   The bad part of that was, shortly after I got that deal, Sprint discontinued that plan, and I was stuck. If I made ANY changes to that line/device, I would lose that plan, and have to take whatever offers were current. I couldn't activate any new device on the data account. So I milked that device and plan for just over 11 years, until Feb. 2018. After so long, the device was struggling, and the data was just damn slow.   After my upgrade to T-Mobile, I have my main phone, (currently a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition), an Aristo 2 Plus, used mostly as a hotspot, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10" with unlimited 4G LTE, all for $132.41. About $45 a month less than what I gave Sprint, and I have one extra device, and all with much faster data.   On Sprint, my average speed was usually less than 15/2, on T-Mobile I get over 100 down and around 40 up.   Of course with this arrangement, one day I will find myself in a similar situation, a line stuck on old tech, even though I CAN upgrade my T-Mobile device, the data add-on specifically says "4G LTE data", So I hope that sticks around for a while as 5G becomes a thing. If I make any changes on that line, I will lose that add-on.           Sorry for all the rambling, I just looked at all the stuff I just typed, and can't bring myself to delete all that work. I guess I just got nostalgic when Facebook on Tuesday showed me a memory post from 2013, the pics are below. My first cell phone was a Nextel, that's how I wound up on Sprint, after that merger. It was 7 years ago already, that Sprint shut off Nextel. Now, Sprint is about to be shut off by T-Mobile. Everything changes. You can't see the date on the pic with "NO SIGNAL", those old Nextel phones didn't even have a proper clock, it just displayed what the network sent it, so, no signal, no clock. How far we have come.   Anyway, I guess with the merger, I'm back in the family, so here I am looking to learn about a new rollout, this time 5G on 2.5 GHz, specifically in the West Michigan area.   Sent from my HD1925 using Tapatalk      
    • https://techcrunch.com/2020/07/01/dish-closes-boost-mobile-purchase-following-t-mobile-sprint-merger/   This deal should help free up some more capital for New T-Mobile now that Boost and Virgin Mobile are officially in Dish’s hands.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
