Have you messed with notification settings? There are many different settings for example see attached.
Yes. Been messing with them all day.

You actually have a lock screen with a pin, (on lock screen show content - That is not there if there is not pin.

There are two options, but both dont help me. In edge settings, I can turn off the notifications for whatsapp and that would eliminate the mini pop up with the name and part of the message. in turn it would bring a pop down with the last 5 chats/people that are unread. This doesnt help either, Im trying to eliminate all content in any message pop up other than who or if multiple people/chats then just hoe many unread.

Have you tried turning on hide content here
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0boqb93gm1o7k83/Screenshot_20170914-144230.jpg?dl=0
issue with that is then all my apps have hidden contents on the lock screen. In addition, it doesn't help once the phone is on. I'm back to either edge with single messages poppingv up. No edge then 5 Sep messages popping up. Or silence which no messages will pop up though an icon will appear on top, but then no vibrate.

In short there is no option to notify/vibrate with 'no peeking'

Probably doesn't need it.
If it's anything like the s8 you definitely need it.

How long does it take from when you order it on Samsung until it arrives?

It shipped 2 day air on the date they tell you at time of order. Pretty quick.

I ordered one on Monday this week and it shipped today.

I don't care for cases.  I won't use the phone though until I have a screen cover.

Did they charge your card right away or when it shipped? As I ordered it a few days ago and no pending charges on my card
