Yep, just called. Multiple reps have said they aren't able to pre-order the Note 3 at full retail, unless you enroll in the Edge plan. They said to purchase at full retail and remain on unlimited, you need to wait till the phone is actually out.

You might just want to double check that the rep you ordered with didn't change you over to the Edge plan despite telling you otherwise (you know how unreliable csrs are). That or I guess you got lucky.

Okay, called a couple more times and finally got a CSR that was able to pre-order it for me with the full retail option (no change to my unlimited data plan). It really shouldn't be this difficult... Stupid VZW.

My first csr never called back, so my second one says that the system is down. He didn't even know that the Note 3 was on pre-order today!



He said he would call me when the system is back up. Leave it to VZW to botch a phone launch... they apparently can't even get a pre-order right.

Took me awhile, but I called the sale department instead of customer service.

Finally! The 2nd CSR called back, and had to really do some work arounds to get the sale to include a phone ONLY, and not affect the plan or data.

I also used a great app called In Call Recorder to record the call (which is legal in my state, as long as one person knows about it and that's me). So if they try something nefarious, I have him on record saying that nothing changes but the phone.

But I got my confirmation number, Darling Bride is bummed that coral pink isn't available yet. Oh well, release date is October 10 so there's time.

<---------- One happy Chief!

I tried ordering the full retail price version myself several times this morning using Verizon's website, only to run into the issue of only seeing the $299 price for a two year commitment that others have seen. Since it looks like it won't ship until about October 10 (or perhaps slightly before that based on early shipments for other Verizon pre-ordered phones), I going to wait awhile to order it instead of calling customer service. Perhaps the 64GB version will magically become available in the meantime!

This morning I tried to do my preorder online to buy it out right and it kept continuing me to the 2 year contract charging me the $299.00 price instead of the $699.00 full price that I selected. So I went to a Verizon store and talking about being harassed about giving up my unlimited plan. The guy acted like he did not want my money for the buying it out right. telling me I do not need a unlimited plan. He became argumentative to the point that I left that Verizon store. There was another salesmen doing the same with another customer wanting to keep there unlimited plan. I left so upset that I gave up for today. I will try at my friends store Monday when he is back from vacation. Has any of you had any problems with pushy sales men or problems online?

I just tried to "upgrade my device" then selected the Edge program. This resulted in me giving up my unlimited data plan for the 6GB plan. Oddly enough, it looks like they were going to charge me the full amount for the phone instead of the monthly fee as the final screen said the amount due was in excess of $700. So to looks like I was going to pay full retail for the phone while losing my unlimited even though I selected Edge. Not sure what happened there. Anyways, I never intended to do Edge.

I doubt Verizon gets the 64gb version as they didn't have the 32gb GN2. But other carriers, I'd imagine will have 64 later this year.

Yeah, definitely a chance that they will sell out the pre-orders. But with a month or so before shipments, I'll have to take a chance. I might even have to wait a week or two before they fill the pipeline again.

I was one of those following the Galaxy Nexus on the forums two years or so ago, and the forum activity in anticipation of the Galaxy Nexus was at least an order of magnitude greater than for the Note 3. Yet I walked into my local Verizon store the day of introduction and walked out with two GNs.

I will get the 32 GB Note 3 at full retail (keeping my unlimited) if it appears the 64 won't be available anytime soon, and I already have a San Disk 64GB Ultra card snagged at an Amazon sale. If my wife likes my Note 3, then I'll get her one and give her my Ultra card while getting an Extreme card for me.

edge allows you to purchase the phone and make installment payments towards the phone. but it will force you to give up the unlimited data and instead give you 6GB. you cannot keep unlimited data while purchasing a phone using this new program.

*** DO NOT GO TO A STORE ***

While some VZW stores are great, most are terrible, and will waste your time, turn your hair grey, and make you want to punch someone in the face. Pick up your phone and call VZW, their phone support is way better. Plus, if you just call them you don't even need to be wearing pants!

In all seriousness though, I had issues with two or three separate VZW stores in the Boston, MA area when the GNex came out. Terrible service, inaccurate information, and one store actually just wound up sitting me down behind the desk on the phone with the VZW phone based customer support because the idiots at the store couldn't actually do anything.

</rant>

Regarding the Note 3, I've currently got a GNex, and I'm eyeing the Note 3. Concerned about the comparatively massive size, and was thinking of waiting for a physical release to get some hands on time (...yeah...going to a store...). Does anyone have comments on how well the Note 3 (or Note 2) will fit into a "standard" guys pants pocket?

I am also from the Boston area and know what you mean about the Verizon store personal.

I had the Gnex (loved it) and now have the Note2. Its not too big at all. Fits into a pocket fine though it might be too big sometimes for using with one hand but you get used to it. The bigger screen certainly helps with not having to use my reading glasses to read an email.

Since the Note 3 is comparable in size to the Note 2, I just played with the Note 2 and pretended it had a slightly bigger screen. Very comfortable in hand, considering the size of the phone. Played with the X, which is actually smaller than the Gnex.

But depending on the CSR you get on the phone, they may or may not know enough to help. My second CSR trying to pre-order the Note 3 didn't even know it was available for pre-order!

It's the curse of Android Forums: knowing more about Android and Android devices than 98% of reps, who are too busy working the numbers game to know what we know. They're doing what they can. Ah well...

Thanks for this update. I had tried several times yesterday to order at full retail in order to keep my unlimited. After seeing your message this morning, I tried again and it went through first time!

I've gotten alot of info here from you guys. Thanks. Two questions. What is the date to be able to walk in to a store and pick up the Note3. Is it Oct. 10th or earlier. Second, the 6 gb you get with the edge plane. Is that only for my new phone or would I share that with other phones on my plan like the family plan? Thanks again!

I get that. I'm just wondering why it asked for over $700 in the amount due when the monthly bill should've gone up $30 and the $30 upgrade fee should've only been charged.

Only the 32gb is on the Verizon site. Since I am upgrading from a N2 (16gb), with a huge micro card, not an issue at all. I have tons of stuff on my N2 and still have 2gb left, on a 16gb N2

Good question and welcome to Android Forums! It seems to me that the 6 GB Edge data plan is a single line plan, not in the Family Share bucket. HOWEVER: If I were you, I would call *611 and find out for sure.

Oh, and release date is CURRENTLY scheduled for October 10th. Since they generally ship pre-orders out early in order for them to GET in the customer's hands on launch day, it's possible - depending on how far away you live from a distribution center - to get the pre-order Note 3 on the 9th or MAYBE even earlier.

I pre-ordered my note3 to replace my note2, which I love, but I had an upgrade so what the heck. My brother is buying the note2. So the note3 only ends up costing me $175.00. :-)

I used the website, no issues.. come on 10/10!

For those that preordered through Verizon, have they charged your credit card yet? Or have you seen a pending charge?

It's my understanding that the charge will not be posted until the phone is ready to ship. Once October 8th or 9th comes around, the charge should hit.

You bet it would! Why the other big carriers are releasing the phone before Verizon is beyond me. Why the delay for us? October 1 would be great.

That's how things always are on Verizon. Their GS4 came out a month after everyone else's did. Their HTC One came out 4 months after everyone else.

Will they be in the store about the same time as I prefer pick up. Delivery isn't that great in my apartment complex.

I have the same problem.

I tried preordering it at Best Buy today, but the guy told me they don't price-match on any phones, even off contract. They wanted $100 more than what VZ is selling it for.

I told them to go jump in a lake.

$100 MORE?

Sounds like a heck of a deal to me... for somebody...

The S3 & Note 2 were the same way, almost a month behind. This is just par for the coarse.

I have never understood the whole Best Buy is $100.00 more than Verizon stores, but it has been like that for some time now.

BEST BUY's low price guarantee doesn't explicitly exclude off-contract phones, but, it does exclude contract phones:

Low Price Guarantee - Best Buy

If a phone (or any product @BB) has the "LOW PRICE GUARANTEE" emblem (check on-line or in-store), you're good to go.

It still wouldn't hurt to try a price match/low price guarantee,whether on or off contract, as YMMV.

I prefer to purchase via BEST BUY, as I like their insurance better than everyone else's, but, this time around, I think I'm gonna get my next phone from T-Mobile, on their JUMP program, as the insurance is included w/the monthly JUMP fee of $10.

I have never run a phone deal through Best Buy. Nearest one to me is 40 miles away. For insurance and warranty though, I think I'll forego the Verizon TEC and go Squaretrade this time. It's all up front instead of monthly, but it's cheaper in the long run and no deductibles.

Folks, I know we're weeks away from having this thing in our hands but wow am I excited! My Nexus is really starting to annoy me: acting up, crashing, losing the live wallpaper & signal repeatedly... she's either getting really senile or she knows she's being put to pasture. This "rebellious" phone needs to be retired... SOON!

Just remember Squaretrade doesn't cover you if your device is lost or stolen where Verizon's insurance does. Just something to keep in mind.

Having also come from the nexus, as I'm sure you remember (thanks again for all that help), if the 3 is anything like the 2, you're going to love it. If I wasn't a phone crack head, I'd have no issue with keeping the 2 longer. Keep being excited; it's totally part of the fun.

For all you Verizon folks, looks like you don't have to worry about getting a cover for the button (like last year's Note 2). Verizon actually approved the backcover logo only:

So I returned my LG G2 and am patiently waiting for Samsung to drop its giant load. Pre-ordered it today.

Can't wait.

Han, you had such high hopes for the G2! What happened? I mean, welcome to the Note 3 waiting room... but what exactly brought you here, if you don't mind my asking?
