    Default Due for upgrade on 2/1/14...

    I am thinking of switch from my crappy iPhone 4S to the note 3. Any thoughts would be great.

    Had the Note 3 since it's launch. Love it. Big screen, 1080 display, great battery life (especially with Google Play Services recent update made it even better), and true multitasking. I had a iPhone 4S before. Was okay but nothing beats the Note series. Had the Note 2 and decided to continue down the Note series road.

    Depends. If you do the One Up program, you pay the sales tax on the full cost of the device.

    Without doing the one up deal? To me it seems like you pay more for the phone since it gets added to your bill every month.

    But there is a discount ($15 I think) on the plan while you have the payment.
    Otherwise I think the device subsidized is about $300.

    Can usually find savings on Amazon. Current upgrade price is $199

    Yes, there is a $15 discount on your bill every month for the two years of the contract or until you decide to upgrade again. I got mine on launch day and on the first bill, voila, the discount was there. You do have to pay taxes on the full amount of the phone at the time of upgrade.

    After having the Note 2 (which I graciously gave to my husband after using his upgrade for the Note 3 ) and now the Note 3 I will gladly stick with the Note series for future upgrades (I've had the Nexus S and Gnex in the past). I love the screen, the size, the S pen, everything!

    Judging by the look of it Amazon is my cheapest bet. That's not a bad price for a new phone! Could I even trade in my iPhone 4S for cash? If my math is right the Note 3 from Amazon would run me about $275 after taxes.

    There are sites that will buy your old phone, and seem to offer good prices. You can also use the Sprint Buy Back program. I-phones seem to bring the best prices.

    Not every device nor provider is for everyone. So choose carefully before you put your money down. Then live with your decision.

    Sell your phone on Glyde. In the last 3 months I sold a Galaxy S 2 ($112.00), my Galaxy Note 2 ($304.00), and 2 EVO 4G LTEs ($104.30 each)! You get more for your phone there than anywhere else that I've checked (Gazelle, Sprint Buy Back, Best Buy Trade In, etc.). The Gkyde.com site will also show you how much other trade in services are paying for your phone. Basically the site puts your phone in a cue to sell. When a buyer buys your phone they send you a shipping kit. Once the buyer receives the phone they have like 2 days to decide to accept the phone and then the money gets deposited in to your Glyde account. Then you can ETF the cash to your bank account.
