AT&T starts shipping the Samsung Galaxy S6 ahead of April 10th
AT&T appears to have joined Sprint and T-Mobile in shipping the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge ahead of the official release date. Multiple AT&T customers replied to a Reddit topic claiming that the carrier's website is now confirming that pre-orders are already shipping, with Tuesday, April 7th slated as the estimated delivery date. Apparently, pre-orders for both the S6 edge and the regular Galaxy S6 are now on their way towards customers. Other customers don't seem to be as lucky, as not all of AT&T's pre-orders started shipping ahead of time. Samsung's official release date for the Galaxy S6 smartphone series was announced for April 10th in various corners of the world.

Previously, two other major US carriers, T-Mobile and Sprint, announced that they will start shipping the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge ahead of the official April 10th release date. Verizon is now the only major carrier in the US that hasn't started shipping the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge ahead of April 10th. Verizon was also the last of the big four US carriers to accept pre-orders for the new Samsung flagships. T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint opened up for Galaxy S6 pre-orders on March 27th, while Verizon customers had to wait until April 1st to pre-order their brand-new Samsung smartphones.

The more people boycott, the quicker a smaller-than-phablet flagship with restored battery and SD card slot gets released. Take heed.

I cancelled my preorder with at&t to preorder instead with best buy for the free charging pad. Had I known that keeping my preorder with at&t would have meant I'd get my phone earlier, I would have kept it. I've been anticipating the s6 edge since its announcement. April 10th couldn't come any sooner. Why must I work myself up over these phones! Why??

Like Apple orders, these might simply be held by the courier until the official release date comes.
