    Well I want to keep unlimited data. It's really the only way, unless I wait and try to find one on Craigslist

    Considering what a phone can do nowadays, I don't think a price tag of $699 is unreasonable. I'm not quite sure what else is out there that is comparable to a phone that is portable and is an all-in-one device that can do gaming, media, picture taking, talk, text, web surf, NFC, using it to swipe credit cards, and etc.

    I am getting it at full freight. But its all relative. Ill sell the GS3 for $250ish to offset the cost and then one day sell the Note 2 for $250ish to pay for the next greatest thing. The cycle will never end.

    Exactly. You can also check Swappa - they will be flooded when it finally drops. I'll be paying the full monty as well, but it is what it is.

    What about adding a line and getting the note for $300? $10 a month for the second line over the course of 2 years is $240 + $300 for the note equals $540.

    It's not really 10 bucks a month - don't forget the taxes and fees. That pushes it close to 17 bucks a month. That makes it $707 over two years plus the $30 upgrade fee.

    I am contemplating adding a line, buying the GN2, then cancelling the line. $299 plus $350 termination fee equals $649. Unsure if you get tagged with the $30 upgrade fee though.

    I would be in the same boat. If I want to keep my unlimited grandfathered 4G plan, which I do, I would have to buy the new phone at full retail price. Sucks, but I guess that's the only way. $699 is steep if you consider that it costs the same as a decent laptop or tablet nowadays. Nevertheless, the Note 2 is tempting, as I would use it as a tablet replacement with its large screen.

    Yes, I'm paying full retail for the Note 2 (pre-ordered already). I did the same with the Thunderbolt ($599) back in April 2011 as I decided then to stop playing the upgrade game and stay off contract. So this time it's really a side benefit to keep unlimited data by paying full retail. Money is not an issue and I'm otherwise very frugal with it, so I have no problem occasionally laying out for something I really want and value. The Note 2 is a beast! It really is like a super mini-computer, so the extra $100 over what I paid for the Thunderbolt is well worth it to me!

    Isn't the $10/month only if you're on the share everything plan?

    No, you can add a line without converting to the share everything plan.

    Ok, then what about data access for the new line?
    I'm trying to see where the $10 + fees comes from.
    Looking on the Verizon website if i go to add a line it says smartphones requires a $40 data plan on the share everything plan.
    That isn't word for word but that's pretty much it.

    While that is technically true, the rep and remove the data requirement and add a "dummy" phone to the extra line. They he/she can move the new device to your line. The extra line is 9.99 but they add taxes and surcharges.

    I am also on the unlimited boat. Upgrading at full cost. It's a mini tablet that will be able to replace my 11" ultrabook in certain situations, plus it has a cellular antenna. To me it's worth it. Plus I'll be selling my iPhone 4 for at least 200 (I hope).
