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.

Well I just spoke to a Riddik and was told that no stock and more stock coming next week hopefully.  Ordered on the 21st and have the waiting for your item to arrive at warehouse message in tracking.

This is just really ridiculous...I preordered on the 31st of March thinking I will get it before official release date. I will be contacting Ombudsman today about this. This is ruining my partner's business and could lose hus disability pension because he has no phone until I give him my Sony after I get my preorder.

Ok i am seriously confused and getting fed up. My tracking has updated to packing at warehouse to this: 

 

Your new phone is now ready and you can plug your old SIM into your new phone

 

And

 

Your phone is now active. Please turn it off and then back on. For help with your phone, please visit handset help & support

 

 

I don't even have my new phone yet, what the hell is going on????
