Infinity display

 

Marvel at the big, beautiful infinity display on the 5.8” Samsung Galaxy S8 and 6.2” S8+. Each handset boasts Samsung’s highest resolution smartphone screens ever and with their stunning super AMOLED display, colours appear brighter, bolder and truly come alive.

So an update, I go to work then check again to see if it is at warehouse but it had changed to "Your order is on the road..."

Thinking it might be tomorrow when I get it but all of a sudden it was in Adelaide and heading to my place. (It was coming from Sydney)

Being I was not home and unable to sign with ID (others were home) I have just picked it up from Post Office.

Bit confused with the delay in tracking but then again it is StarTrack...

Hey All, if you are experiencing delays and no update on your device (stuck waiting for the handset in the warehouse) please PM through your account details (username/ phone number/ account number) as well as your date of birth and full name.

 

If you can please provide the order number we're working directly with our Sales Support team to have these processed as fast as possible.

 

Happy to answer any further questions you might have.

 

Thank you!

Morning @DayBlossom,

 

Great to hear that you've received your phone Smiley Happy Apologise for not getting the heads up, the wrong notification was sent to you previously which closed of any further notifications about the order. Once you signed off receiving the order, it would have sent notification back to Optus to change the plans. Your MyOptus Account could take up until 24 hours for this to update though. After 24 hours, if it hasn't updated just yet. Please send us a screenshot via the PM you have with me and I'll look into it for you.

 

Thanks,
