I really hope Foxfi works with this phone.
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?
Ordered mine on Saturday and not even a pending charge yet.
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.
It would be a nice surprise if the released date was moved to an earlier date.
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.
Sounds like a heck of a deal to me... for somebody...
Some Best Buys will most won't price match. It's up to the mobile manager.
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.
anyone use the "VERIZON30" code when paying full retail or 2 year contract or edge?
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:
Here is the Front and Back of Verizon’s Galaxy Note 3 – Droid Life
So I returned my LG G2 and am patiently waiting for Samsung to drop its giant load. Pre-ordered it today.
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?
