T-Mobile skipping pre-orders for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+, sales open Tuesday
Looking to get yourself a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 Edge+? You know these phones will be hot, and with the release coming up this Friday, August 21st, everyone is looking to sign up for those pre-orders before stocks run out.
But what if your carrier is not holding any pre-orders yet? Such was the case with T-Mobile, but the carrier decided to surprise us with an even better treat. Magenta is skipping pre-orders altogether and will go straight to direct sales.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere took it to Twitter to give us the good news. You can put your name to a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and/or a Galaxy S6 Edge+ starting tomorrow, August 18th. Sales start at 6 AM Pacific, so make sure you have your credit card ready!
We’re opening up #Note5 and #GalaxyS6Plus ordering starting Tuesday 6am PT – no pre-order needed. AND we’re going to start shipping ASAP!— John Legere (@JohnLegere) August 17, 2015
Legere goes on to mention that the devices will be “shipped ASAP”. We are not quite sure what that means, but it can be assumed you will at least have your phone by Friday… hopefully. Who is signing up?! If you still aren’t sure, you can learn more about these handsets by checking out our Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ hands-on posts.
