    My phone is on the truck for delivery. I find it interesting that the phone was driven down to Richmond, Va from Newark, NJ last night. I pretty much figured it would fly to Memphis and might or might not get on a plane here in the am.

    Out for delivery! I'm just hoping the activation goes smooth. I had to switch upgrades with my daughter (first day of pre-order) to get it, but on Verizon.com it has and still does show my bionic as having an update available and her phone as having been upgraded. Kinda confusing but a rep said that when it's activated it will be on my line. Hope so, she's gonna be pi$$ed at having her phone number on an android, she's an apple nut. LOL. Maybe it will upgrade on her line, keeping unlimited and then I can switch it to my line so I can have the unlimited. That would be cool, but the rules and loopholes are too confusing! LOL

    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.
