We ship out 2day air, what we ship out one day normally arrives the next It can take an extra day however depending on UPS. We do not have the ability to change how the order will be shipped at this point.
Once you get a tracking number you can call UPS and make arrangements with them for pickup, or address change. Once shipped Sprint has no control. Sprint give the OK to UPS to ship the units. UPS designates the tracking number NOT Sprint. It is out of Sprints hands when the units are released for shipping. Can you imagine the logistics involved in 1 overnight letter let alone 10's of thousands of S3's. The burden is off Sprint now. UPS will send a file with tracking numbers for each shipment and Sprint will forward the info to each of us. They will be shipped today. Free up some resources and let the system work without bogging it down.
Tracking numbers are assigned at UPS's time frame. The planes do not start flying until midnight or so. Just relax- the wait is almost over. You don't have to have the tracking number until tomorrow but I am sure it will come to your inbox before midnight.
so now that we got official word from sprint.... does anyone of th pre order 32gb actually have tracking numbers?
It's only 8pm in California. We'll see in four hours...
Oh boy am I glad to hear this!!! Finally, it will be in my hands soon! Good thing I am patient but I am ready to play with my new toy. & I have 96GB (approximately, considering the fact that you can't use the FULL 96) of storage to play with! Where do I start?
When I've ordered from the web or telesales in the past, tracking numbers usually showed up in my email around midnight, Central time. Sprint uses UPSs shipping hub in Louisville and the facility handles order fulfillment in the same place where the stock arrives and is warehoused. The phones arrive from Samsung and go right back out.
They can even handle activations for new lines. There's a cool promo video of the process over at the UPS site...
I just spoke to order support and they told me they began shipping out the 32gb pre orders as of today. So I guess we will see soon if the tracking numbers appear but hopefully by thursday we will be proud new owners of the 32gb GS3
