AT&T Galaxy Note 3 Arriving Ahead of In Store Release Josh Smith10/02/2013 The AT&T Galaxy Galaxy Note 3 pre-orders are shipping to users who ordered in the past weeks, and many users can expect to open up the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 before the end of the day. The AT&T Galaxy Note 3 release date in stores is set for October 4th, but one of the devices that we ordered to deliver guides and review materials shipped late October 1st, as AT&T promised, and is on the Fedex vehicle for delivery.Advertisement We expected a swift AT&T Galaxy Note 3 shipment process after AT&T was able to deliver the Samsung Galaxy S4 to buyers days before the device went on sale in stores.

If you are expecting a Galaxy Note 3 today, you may want to leave a note with your signature and any specific directions if you will not be home during the day. Check AT&T’s website to see if your Galaxy Note 3 shipped. To check the status of your AT&T Galaxy Note 3 order log in to AT&T’s website, hover over My AT&T and then click on My Orders to see your tracking number and status. We did not see an email from AT&T telling us the Note 3 shipped, so it’s worth taking a look even if you have yet to receive a notification. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 connects to the Galaxy Gear, which may also be shipping out this morning to AT&T customers who purchased the limited colors offered by the carriers. We purchased an orange Galaxy Gear from a reseller who offers all the Galaxy Gear colors at a slightly higher price.Advertisement The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 earned praise in our review for speedy performance and a new leather-style design that delivers a better look and build-quality without sacrificing access to a Micro SD card and removable battery. Users can also look forward to the new S Pen which uses Air Command to quickly launch special apps on the 5.7-inch 1080P HD display.
