It has been a frustrating time for Verizon consumers lately. Whether you are a Galaxy S3 customer waiting for a Jelly Bean update or a customer waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to arrive – it’s clear that Verizon really needs to do a better job in the communication department. Their infamous silence has already caused many customers to leave their network, but thankfully we do have some positive news at last to bring future Galaxy Note 2 owners.
As most of you know, the highly sought after Verizon Galaxy Note 2 had been up for pre-order for weeks already. During this time, Verizon has still not committed to an official release date, instead allowing customers to order the device under the assumption that it will be at least available before the end of November.
The good news, is that there are already reports of Galaxy Note 2 shipping notices that have been sent to early pre-order customers, informing them that their device will be reaching them before the end of the week. Thursday has been touted as the magical day that first in line customers will receive their Note 2, but again – we see no official statement from Verizon confirming this, or any movement on the Galaxy Note 2 product page on Verizon’s website.
If you head over to the AndroidForums though, you’ll see that one customer in particular has already received his Galaxy Note 2 shipping notification and is expected to get his device on Thursday at 7pm after initially ordering the device from Verizon on November 17.
Have you had the same luck and already received an email confirming your imminent delivery? If the devices really are due to reach customers on Thursday, it seems a little strange that we haven’t had any word on Verizon on when they will finally start selling the device in retail stores.
If you have had a notification already, you should be able to use a tracking number to see where your Note 2 is specifically and find out what time the device will reach you. Some communication from Verizon would have been nice regardless – let us know where you stand at the moment if you have ordered a Galaxy Note 2 online.
Are you looking forward to having a device with its own unique Verizon branded home button?
