    I have Verizon as my carrier. I've pre-ordered note 10+ unlocked at best buy. I've never bought an unlocked phone. Will I be missing features. I've read that unlocked phones take longer to get updates. Is this true?

    Very true. Unlocked always gets the updates last in the US as far as Samsung goes.

    Yes. You will lose Visual Voicemail and other features. Made that mistake with the S9 but was able to swap back to the Verizon model

    Unlocked models now have their own visual voice mail ..so that's a plus

    I have VZW has a carrier and ordered Samsung unlocked phones for my past 3 phones. Unlocked phones get the updates last, but at least there's no bloatware to deal with.

    WiFi calling and HD voice calling I think. Both are not available on unlocked phones from Verizon.

    I left them about 5 years ago for nasty things like this. I am with T-Mobile now. Always buy unlocked and everything works on T-Mobile.

    That's no longer true according to other Samsung owners of S10s

    I have a Note 9 in perfect condition. If I decide to trade it in for $600 plus the additional $150(?) From Samsung do I save the $ up front or only after 2 years of payments?

    I like to pay cash and VZW is my carrier. Can i get the full amount of the offer and pay cash for the 10plus5G if all I am doing is upgrading not opening a new line? Where? BestBuy or VZW store?

    Ordering thru Sammy you save it upfront... I don't think you have to do Payments. You do have to get the unlocked version tho

    Sorry. I responded from my phone and it chooses how I respond apparently. I was just listing the 3 things I lost using the unlocked version.

    CrapifIknow. I'm thinking about going back to iPhone if Google/Android can't start fixing simple things like Smart Lock and Storing my settings the way I want. Every time I open Chrome it sends me that Discover BS no matter how many times I turn it off in settings in the browser and in Phone settings. I have it set to a different Homepage but it removes it with that Discover. I know where and how to get my news and I don't need Google forcing down my throat
