S21 Ultra 512GB Variant (Back ordered)

When I first ordered this phone, it's estimated ship date was September. I cancelled the order.

I checked back on AT&T's website and found that on the 7th of April, the estimated ship date was April 21st - 28th.
I re-ordered.  That date has obviously come and gone, and as of last night, the estimated ship date was chanted to May 21st - 28th.

Will this just keep happening? Is there any end is sight, or will I just keep getting strung along?

I refused to buy the 256gb variant without an SD card option, so this is the only path for me.

A co-worker of mine walked into V and purchased the phone on the spot, same day, no waiting, no online order, no back order, nothing. Just went in and got it same day.  If V has them in stock, why not AT&T?

Makes me want to leave this crappy blue globe all togeather.

Samsung has always done this with the 512GB versions and with NAND flash being in short supply right now that is also part of the problem.  Then the fact they removed the sd card slot.

If you don't preorder you almost can never get a 512gb model.

Guess we should be thankful we were able to order at all.

I just checked Samsung's website and it seems that there are other colors available in the 512GB (For Business) Phantom Titanium, Phantom Navy and Phantom Brown.

grrrrrrr!!

@Zachology101 I guess so. Maybe we will end up doing the Pre-order for the S22 if they keep pushing the ship date! They should never have removed the SD Card!

V customer here, and I feel your pain. Been waiting over 2 months for ours. Today V said 1 is in, but we need to wait till May 25 to 28 for 2nd. I hope that's it for our long wait. I have been feeling strung along since they are losing money on the deal (exchanging the nonUltras with lower memory due to a salesman telling us we were getting the Ultras) and since they have some pretty fast talkers. So I finally thought to research and see if these multiple delays are really due to the manufacturer. Seems like it. At least 1 of the 2 is in now. I wish the best to you! For me the 30 optical zoom will be worth the wait (and better memory).

I'm done waiting. I cancelled my order and plan on cancelling my account with AT&T. We are moving and the house we are going to has crappy AT&T, not AT&T fiber, so we are switching to Xfinity and will switch to Xfinity mobile. I do not think I will be buying a new phone with Xfinity, I will just wait and preorder the next years phone.

Just wondering how many of you actually received your 512GB S21 Ultra phones.  Ordered mine on July 9th.  Original expected ship date was July12-14th.  That came and went and now says August 11-13th.  I'm willing to wait a month, but not if they are going to push out the date each time I reach it.
