Re: Samsung Note 9 FAQs - Info From The AT&T Community Team

Answer this: Why is AT&T one of the last carriers to ship a pre-ordered 512gb Note 9's?

 

I pre-ordered the 512gb. BIG MISTAKE! The phone came out 5 days ago and I have a ship date of 2 weeks from today. THIS IS UNACCETABLE AT&T. For pre-odering I get to get the phone almost a month after it comes out?!

You could have preordered the device at best buy and had the same problem.  I have a friend that works for BB and they got 1 512gb att version on launch and it was preordered.  Samsung did not make enough is what it boils down to.  Just like apple with their higher storage models.

Re: Samsung Note 9 FAQs - Info From The AT&T Community Team

You sure do alot of replying on AT&T's community forum with 15,000 posts; odd how you keep challenging all of my posts today.

 

I would think AT&T representatives know what they are talking about. They told me they would fullfill my order, they checked to see which location near me had it in stock, and said I could have the blue 512gb Note 9 within 2 hours if I cancelled my first order and lost my headphones. I do not know why you are trying to make me prove what I have already told you.

 

AT&T had a "glitch" on my order and changed my receive date and expects me to just accept it and possibly risk loosing my headphones still if it comes after the 9/13 deadline. This is NOT right.

 

Apple has an amazing track record for getting their backorders to their customers on-time.  Let’s see if AT&T and Samsung can do the same. It was dirty of AT&T to change the date on me like that, and then act as if it is no big deal.

 

I cannot keep replying with you on several posts. I am not being paid and AT&T has waisted enough of my time. I just want to warn people about pre-ordering with AT&T; you are better to go in the store and buy it if you don't want to wait month to receive it.

UPDATE: MY PHONE ARRIVED! August the 31st infact! The Note 9 is living up to the hype so far. I really like the S-Pen with bluetooth working with the camera. I am really happy with it. I was able to order my AKG headphones and was given a ship date already. I appreciate AT&T for getting on my order, and getting it to me and righting a wrong. I feel they took care of the issue.

My only problem is the battery life of the s-pen.
