If you preordered your Samsung Galaxy S4 for Sprint through Best Buy, chances are you’re about to be one sad panda. According to emails being received by preorderers, there has been a delay of 2 to 3 weeks. The email states:
We’re sorry, but the fulfillment of your recent pre-order is taking longer than expected. We expect it to arrive between May 9 and May 20. To keep you informed of its delivery, we’ll send tracking information once the item has shipped.
If you prefer, you can cancel this order at any time. To do so, please call us at 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289). If possible, please have your order number handy.
If we don’t hear from you before the order is shipped, we’ll assume you still want this item and accept this delay.
Once again, we’re sorry for this inconvenience, and we’ll do our best to make things right.
So, while you could cancel your preorder and try to get it through Sprint directly, keep in mind that Sprint is having issues supplying for the demand on the S4. However, if you can call a Sprint store and get them to commit, it might be worth a shot.
Be sure to let us know your personal experience with this below.
