I love the phone but I can't really afford it and it's way more than I need. I paid $700 cash out the door from T-Mo and I paid $400 out the door for the N4 so that $300 savings will come in handy with the holidays approaching. Yes I have to pay a $50 re-stocking fee but I just look at it as the cost of renting the phone for 30 days while I figured out what I really wanted. That being said, I probably will just bite the bullet and keep it if my N4 gets backordered. I haven't even really messed with the Note yet thinking it was just a rental. Would be interesting to actually look at it in a different light as my new phone
