These next couple of months will be quite the test. ...quite the test indeed.

    I know I'm gonna want it as soon as I see it so best to avoid seeing it for a while.

    Best Buy and Costco have no secondary etf. They are the only third party that I know of that don't.

    So, does this say that pm doesn't apply to phones purchased (upgraded) on contract, i.e., further 2yr extension?

    I am going to wait until Black Friday. T-mobile had a good deal on Note 2's and SGS3's last year. It wasn't a camp overnight thing either.

    I once considered the GN 8 but the lack of 32GB devices in the US just pissed me off. Now the GN10.1 2014 Edition will be coming with far better specs so that combined with a GN3 will meet my needs for a long time. I would love to get it at BB and rack up my reward points, but I just didn't want to wait and HOPE they had stock or some promo going on. To much happening to deal with trying to get to the store in time.

    Currently and until the beginning of November, best buy will price match local competitors pricing for contract phones.


    ' Is Best Buy currently running any tests or promotions under the Low Price Guarantee?
    Yes. At the time of purchase, Best Buy Mobile Stores will match the new, identical, immediately available current pre-tax price of contract mobile phone devices from local retail competitors, including mall kiosks. Valid for purchases made between May 23, 2013 - November 2, 2013. Contract mobile phone plans and the online pricing for contract mobile phones are excluded. All other terms and conditions of the Best Buy Low Price Guarantee apply."

    Other than BB and Verizon stores and maybe Staples and Walmart, I can't think of any local stores that sell phones, so we practically have no local competitors to speak of.

    Costco, Sam's Club, Frys, Target,apple store, Microsoft Store, and Radio Shack in my area sell contract phones. There are also smaller stores

    You don't have a target or radioshack close by? They have good sales from time to time too.

    Yes, I forgot Sam's Club, Target, and Radio Shack. As to the latter, it seems everything is more expensive at Radio Shack. At to Costco, I take it there must be a local store to be consider a local competition. We don't have one.

    Default When I verify it has no issues, I will be buying it.

    I am an unlimited user and will be buying 2 so I want to allow those who get it first verify it has no bugs, or at least reveal which ones to look for when I do get mine. As an unlimited Verizon user, I want to make sure it is a solid phone before buying 2. I have a rezound now and can't wait to go to the Note 3. My blue tooth hasn't worked in forever and I really miss it. I am also looking forward to all the upgrades it comes with over my rezound. Bluetooth 4 here I come......

    I am surprised that no one feels like I do in that there is no big reason to get a Note 3 until Sprint gets LTE in my area. All summer, and now into the fall, it is, "by the end of the month, by the end of the month". I am in no hurry to subsist only on 3G. And at this point we are ten weeks from Black Friday.

    I thought the Rezound was fairly new...too new to be having such problems. Who makes it?

    HTC made the rezound. I had two new exchanges within the return period from Costco for manufacturers defects.

    Wow, I had no idea. My Rezound has always done some odd things, and now I'm particularly ready to leave it behind.

    I am going to wait until Feb 2014 because that's when I am eligible for an upgrade from AT&T. I guess that is a good thing because I will get to see what the new Nexus will be like. I am 99.85% sure my next phone will be a Note 3 (currently a GS3) since the Nexus probably won't have a microSD slot and I need that slot for local storage.

    It's good HTC has decided they need to produce better quality with the One.

    I hear that. The Note 3 should be quite the upgrade.

    Couldn't resist it and ordered it yesterday. Had an upgrade to burn and love my Note 2, so why not. I even took the plunge on the galaxy gear. I currently have the pebble and love the functionality of a smart watch, so figured I would give it a shot. I also backed the hot watch on kickstarter. What can I say i am addicted to new tech!

    Awesomez. I have the same affliction. You'll have to report back on how you like that G-Gear.

    Will do for sure. Not just counting the days until ship day!

    My wild guess that discounts may appear rather sooner than later, in part because the demand for Note 3 isn't going to be as high as was for earlier Notes. Early Notes were qualitatively different products (phablets), and those who wanted that specific quality already have it with earlier models. Most of them aren't going to grab Note 3 at high price.
