    The tracking on this appears to be accurate. It shipped Monday morning and went to Newark arriving at 2am yesterday. It left Newark at 7 last night and arrived in town about 5.

    It's on my desk charging. I guess I could boot it while it's charging and let it sync up...

    Anyone know if you can use the other chargers (Bionic, etc.) with the S4?

    Mine is charging as well. There is a red notification light on now, can anyone tell me if this will change to green or something once the charging has completed?

    Congrats and yes, you can use your Bionic charger.

    Yep, it stays red during charging and then turns blue or green once done... can't remember exactly right now..

    It will work fine with any charger. But bear in mind that the stock charger (I believe) is a 2 amp charger. So if you use a different charger that puts out a smaller amperage, it will obviously take longer to charge. At home by my desk I use a HTC charger and it charges my Note 2 fine (it can go from 50% to 100% in about an hour). Next to my bed, I use an old Blackberry charger, which charges at a much slower rate (which is fine when I am sleeping).

    Assuming that the LED is configured like the Note 2, it will be red when charging and green when fully charged. With TouchWiz there is also a notification that pops up to tell you the battery is fully charged and you should unplug it from the charger.
