    I went to my nearest sprint store to purchase it but they were sold out. I'm going to buy off contract and if they don't let me, then I'll add a line and cancel it the next day and pay the ETF. Essentially, you'd be paying the same price.

    I went to the Sprint store today and they wouldn't sell me one for the off-contract price! They said I have to be eligible for an upgrade or start a new/second line to get the phone. So because I upgraded to the EVO LTE this past May, I can't get it! I called a few more Sprint stores around the area and they all said the same thing! I guess I have to wait for Best Buy or Radio Shack since they probably don't care about starting/renewing contracts.

    This is weak...
    Wow sorry to hear that. I don't understand if you're willing to buy a phone full price you should be able to do so as you please. My Sprint has no problem taking all my money, it's just weird how they operate differently.

    All right, who has their new precious?

    I've had mine for all of 10 minutes, and I'm in love!

    Edit: If you need a case, the Body Glove case that Sprint carries it really nice! I usually don't by cases there since they are quite expensive. ..but the ones I ordered online aren't here yet, and I was way paranoid that I was gonna drop it.

    They don't care because they always add $50+ to the off-contract price. Make sure you get them to price match.

    I just learned in another thread this is inaccurate. I experienced the same thing. However, if you go to a corporate store you can buy it off contract with no problem. What I understand from the other poster is that the partnership stores only make commission on upgrades and new lines of service. According to the poster they (the partnership store) can sell off contract, but will not offer it as an option and would rather you leave the store empty handed. I just don't get it?

    They simply don't make a single dime off selling it at MSRP. Not all phones are this way, but Sprint preferred retailers are paying $649.99 for the N2. So, it's in their interest to sell on upgrade or new to actually make commission from Sprint. They don't care if you leave because they weren't going to make money and you are depleting stock that can make them money.

    Now, I would assume they'd let it go if you were buying a bunch of accessories and other stuff. But, just a unit out the door does them no good.

    Whether or not this is kosher by Sprint rules is another discussion. But, stores do what they can to make money.

    Yeah, I tried the corporate stores also and they gave me the same BS. I contacted about 10 different Sprint stores around my area and none of them wants my $700. I guess I'll get it online and wait for it to get here. I just wanted it in my hands today.

    I was thinking about getting this phone but sprint is selling the s3 for 50 bucks for new and current customers on black Friday so that's what I'm getting. The note 2 does look wicked though

    Having come from an S3, you really couldn't go wrong.

    I reserved mine yesterday. Set up the account over the phone, walked in and got it today after school. I think I was the first or second to buy it there today.

    Lucky you, congrats. I have to wait till best buy gets them in, because I have alot of gift cards to use towards my new phone.

    Yea, I went to a corporate store this morning. First in line at 9am. As I was getting mine set up, I found out that they only recieved 8 (4white 4gray). I dont think they expected a lot of people this morning.

    WORD OF WARNING: Dont get the screensaver sprint sells. It only covers the screen and not the whole front of the phone.


    Yeah...but I don't really know if its their fault or Sprint's. This launch has been so weird... It's like they're testing the waters to see if anyone really cares. With all that people were harping on them to get the first Note, you'd think it would be a given.

    I got mine this morning. I was pissed though because I had to wait at the store for over an hour and a half. I figured they would have more reps in the store for such a big phone debut. Likely there were just a couple of people in front of me.

    Yea they seem to not have big evens at stores anymore. When i got my First GS They opened up early and have Samsung Epic Tshirts on and were fully staffed. But for the GS2 they didn't do nothing and same for the GS3. The Note today was worse,4 employees, only 2 checking in customers with 10 people wanting this phone. I was happy to get mine but they seemed quiet about there stock. I Picked up the Grey one since my wife has the Wife GS3. Didn't get to charge this beast so I'm waiting for it to get juice. Tomorrow will be a full day of work so i wont have to much time to play with it till the night but I am happy with it so far.

    Well, I've been shut out so far today. All my local Sprint stores are out of stock, and Best Buy doesn't have it in stock yet. If I can't find a store with it tomorrow, I'll order it online. But I wanted to play with it this weekend!
