    The target date is 10/17 but they are leaving room for delays in getting product in/out and delivered.

    Everyone's who's ever waited on a flagship phone to be released knows these dates can and will fluctuate. I wouldn't even worry about it until we're well into October. I am sure there will be many threads between now and then where people state that their ship date has changed. Nothing was worse than the Galaxy Nexus debacle.

    Do you think the ship date is accurate?
    No I don't.

    Unfortunately it says not available with any other trade in offers. Would be nice though.
    So you pre-order the Note 4 at Best Buy, then trade in a working smartphone for $10. Best Buy gives you a gift card worth $200 under this Best Buy promotion, AND Samsung gives you $190 (under the separate Samsung guarantee of at least $200 trade-in value for any smartphone with a value of $10 or more)???

    Wow, if you can get both of those deals, that would be pretty sweet.

    You can get a 10% off card for Best Buy in an address change kit available at any post office. Not sure if it works on phones or not.

    Since I have to buy the phone outright and more than likely from Best Buy, I am torn as to whether to go ahead and order now or to wait til release. Buying at this high a price will make me an Elite member with Best Buy points. It also saves me from having to go 50 min away to the store and deal with mindless employees with no knowledge. On the other hand the price could drop (I kno I can get the difference up to 15 days after purchase) and I could have to wait the weekend to get my phone. I am going to pay for overnight shipping but if you guys can think of any other reasons to wait/order now I appreciate it. I remember when I got the Note 3 (first one there) not only did it take forever but the rep almost went over my data trying to restore my phone! I don't have unlimited data and I'm sure he knew that. But anyway input is helpful. Has anyone else preordered from Best Buy?

    Yeah, but one offer is from Best Buy, one is from Samsung. How is Best Buy to know (and why would they care) that you are also getting the Samsung deal? The Samsung deal apparently requires you to submit evidence of your trade-in and its value, which you presumably could still do even though Best Buy has chosen to give you a $200 gift card.

    So I'm still not convinced that one cannot get both of these deals.

    I pre-order because I get it at least a day before people who go to the store, I don't have to drive to the store, wait in line and have to deal with the ***** sales people who don't know anything.
    I guess I'm sort of small town living. Never a line to wait in, and one day earlier? That's not incentive enough to pre order, different strokes for different folks. As long as we are all enjoying our new note 4,😂

    Note 3,,,, SIZE IS EVERYTHING

    I "think" I understand what you said.
    -Pre-order a note 4 from BB and get/keep the receipt for proof of purchase.
    -Trade in your old phone with BB and get credit from BB
    -trade in your 2nd old phone with Samsung and submit your proof of purchase; get another credit from Samsung

    Am I right?

    If so, I think that might work. Unless BB mark on the receipt that they've already grant you the credit, then Sammy might not honor your 2nd trade-in

    It definitely depends where you live. I never pre-order phones because I want to try them in person first, but where I live you have to stand in line and wait for everything. And this is for all the carriers. They won't even let you walk in the stores to look around without signing in and waiting in line. And I'm not talking about a phone release - just everyday all day long it's like that. They often are out of stock of just about everything. Phone releases are of course much worse. I always go home and order online after going to a store because even once you are there and have waited in line forever just to look at it, it is more hassle and longer wait to get your phone in the store. Even with multiple stores in the same city, they will all be out of stock. Even months after a release, they can go through their entire stock daily in big metro areas.

    The Verizon rep asked if I would use my current sim card, I said yes. Will I still get a new card with the Note 4?

    Shouldn't the otterbox defender fit on the note 4 that was made for the note 3?

    True. The iPhone 6 and 6 plus have the usual 2 year contract price. I am pretty sure they won't make the Note 4 the exception not offering a 2 year contract price.

    No it doesn't, but it is a fee regardless. If you don't agree, like I said above, buy using another method, or move to another carrier.

    If you do edge no activate fee or upgrade fee. Since Sprint filed a letter to the fcc the fcc made Verizon wireless add this fee.

    Nope, the dimensions are different, and the Note 4 does not have a USB 3.0 plug.

    Are you eligible for a new phone right now? Easy pay is just an additional option as I understand it. I am going to call my Sprint business rep on Monday and ask about it.
