I pre-ordered from Samsung kiosk. Was I supposed to receive it with the phone or emailed? The guy gave me some cheap cardboard gift card that he scribbled $150 on. Is that enough to prove that it's a redeemable voucher?

I have no idea what to use it for. I already have a wireless charger, not interested in Galaxy Watch or the upcoming Watch Active (going with Fitbit for fitness tracking) and I already have a great Spigen case for it.

On the Samsung site, they advertise a wireless battery pack yet it's unavailable to purchase. I remember this came out years ago overseas but never came to NZ. Anybody know anything about this? Because it's really the only thing I can imagine using my evoucher on. Nothing else really appeals to me.

You could always sell it to someone who wants a watch.

Received a tax invoice from Vodafone this morning and in the My Vodafone app my plan has now been changed to the new one so hopefully means it shouldn't be too long until I receive the goods.

I received an email with my $150 voucher code on Thursday and immediately ordered the Ultra Fast Duo Pad. It seems to be a new flat version with faster "2.0" charging? Cost a net $9.95. This was from a Samsung online pre-order. It's arriving today.

Hopefully means I'll get mine in the next few days then providing they have stock left. Did you receive any info on how to claim the free 12 months of Netflix (assuming you weren't already getting it)? Not mentioned on my tax invoice but I understood it was included in all plans.

Pretty impressive battery life on the Plus.

Turned on at 0900 yesterday with 100%. Turned off at 2300. Turned on at 0800 today. Now 1330 and still at 35%.

No got nothing in regards to Netflix, however I had this from a different offer. The process was they emailed instructions which bascially put your account in credit for the 12 months.

No phone or tracking information today so assume it's either not shipped yet or pre-order stock has run out, but would be good to get some sort of update as to whether to expect it this week or still awaiting stock. In the app under my orders it says I have no orders although I gather that was the case for others too. No urgency at I'm not without service or anything but just getting impatient for my new toy now.

Anyone else still waiting on Vodafone pre order?

That was my scenario, it arrived before the tracking info.  I received the invoice late thursday, and the phone early Saturday.  I live rurally so I guess I would have likely received on the friday if I was a Townie.  I received the tracking info late on Saturday.

 

I only received phone and buds, still nothing on the TV (but not as worried about that yet).

 

 

 

hope that helps.

Thanks. I received the tax invoice first thing yesterday morning and it's being delivered to my work address in Wellington CBD since noone would be home to sign for it. So I expect it would have arrived this morning if it had been sent yesterday. I hope they contact you separately to arrange the TV delivery as it suggested on their website rather than it just turning up at work with no advance warning (so I can plan ahead and drive in that day).

They contacted me separately for the TV delivery, to confirm that someone will be there to check the packaging and sign for it. They said it would arrive in 3 business days, but it arrived the next day.

I am new to the world of wireless charging. Can anyone recommend one with USB-C socket that will work with an S10? Other the somewhat more expensive Samsung ones I guess.
