Placed my pre-order 21/8 or thereabouts.  Delivery fromf 3/9.  Order on web hasn't been updated.  Chatted with Sales Support and they don't have stock and don't know when they will.  Suggested I take the 64GB version or go into an Optus store and see if they have stock.  If yes, then cancel the online order and purchase through the store.  Suspect I'll likely miss out on the pre-order deal if I do this.  Might just sit tight.  Annoyingly both JBHiFi and Samsung Asutralia have stock.

To those who are also still waiting, I just finished speaking to support and long story short is that they have no stock in their warehouse and they couldn't give me any indication of when they would be receiving more.


I spoke to a couple of local stores as well who said they don't have any stock either but one said they had some due tomorrow but the only way I could get one of those is if I cancelled my preorder and signed up in store so at least there's that option.

Thanks @Kartika, I ordered on the 24th of last month and tracking says they are still waiting for stock to arrive into the warehouse. The person I spoke to checked with someone in the warehouse who said there were none in the warehouse and they were waiting for their next shipment to arrive. 


If they are as readily available as you say then I should be receiving mine today as they were meant to ship from yesterday and I am within a metro area yet my order has not even been dispatched yet.

I have placed my pre order on 18 August and the website mentioned deliveries will be on 24 August at the time. I checked the status of my order online on 24th and it says "We are waiting for your item to arrive at our warehouse" dated 18 August.

So i contacted optus live chat on 24th and they assured me that my order has been marked as a priority since it was placed as a pre-order. 

I contacted optus live chat again on 27 August and was told that allocations would be make within that week.

But my next live chat session on 30 August to check on the status and I was told that deliveries will commence on 3rd September. 

Of course there was no updates provided on 3rd September too. After a few rounds on the phone with the optus team, I was told to check in store for stock and I either cancel my pre order and sign up in store if they have stock or wait for the stock allocation with no ETA whatsoever.

What is the point of pre-ordering online if I still have to go to each store to check for stock availability? Also, given that I signed up on the pre-order promotion to get 256gb model for the price of 64gb, will the shop be providing the same offer now? Phone support staff did assure me that I can get the same deal in store as the pre-order. But given all the misleading information I've had from the website and the live chat team, I'm going to take that with a pinch of salt.

And what is the point of pre ordering with optus if I have to wait this long post release date with no updates, no apology, no ETA?

I'm in the same situation as the above post (Chongio). Ordered the TAB S4 256gb model on the 200gb $80 plan on 22nd Aug when Optus said 'delivers from 24th Aug'.


After many live chat follow ups, still no stock and no eta.


Signed up to a 24mth contract which I wanted to to start on 24th Aug with all the allocated data. 24month contract has not started yet and no access to the associated data too. And of course no tablet.

Can you send your details through @JessHan.


I'll need your full name, DOB and mobile number → PM DAN.


We'll check the status of this one. I was told that the shipment date for preorders had been moved to the 03/09/18.

Yes date shifted to 3rd sept. But today is the 6th and latest update on the live chat (direct from the warehouse) was still no stock of the 256gb model and no ETA.


Original date for delivery was 24th aug. Then optus updated to 3rd sept. But clearly they were guests on delivery dates as they are still not available

Would be good to get some sort of an ETA, is it going to be days? weeks? 


Dunno about the Optus supply chain but in my warehouse we know when we are due to have stock arriving into the warehouse from suppliers.
