    If you pay ETF the phone is yours. I just did this with AT&T. I even cancelled before the 14 days and still was able to keep the device.

    So let's say you had like 10 super cheap smart phones, I guess you could technically activate a bunch of new lines and get a whole bunch of note 4's for cheap by doing the ETF for all of them. (That is if you really want to go through the trouble)

    Nope I made sure to ask them. Multiple times. And I guess you could but I think you are only allowed 3 Note 4's with the promo. Maybe 2.

    Lol well in your case since you are switching no need for the line adding. I'd just tell them something like you want to buy out of your contract but keep service. Then voila! I hate contracts :P

    I attempted to complete the process since I got my T-mo Note 4 early and I keep getting a message that my IMEI/MAC aren't valid. Have an email into the administrators. Hope this gets fixed quickly.

    I assume the rebate link will be functional on the 17th, the actual release date for the phone. You can still pre-order from all carriers until the 16th (22nd for VZW).

    For those looking to trade in an old phone to best buy check with their customer support desk to see how much it goes for. I read in this thread someone will be using their iPhone 3GS but I just went to best buy and their systems shows the phone to be worth only $5 for 8gb and 16gb models. I believe minimum value is $10 to qualify. So don't just get the oldest possible smart phone because they can probably turn you away.

    I think that's for the Samsung offer. Best Buy food not require a minimum purchase from what I can tell.

    I'm saying after you pick it up at BB with two year contract you can go to AT&T store and tell them you want to buy out of contact i.e. pay ETF. Just a different way of saying it.

    Certainly a possibility but seems odd to make it partially functional which is how I would catagorize it now.

    Does anyone know how many phones can be used to trade in at best buy to go towards a new phone?

    Has anyone found out if you can buy your phone outright? The promotion fine print says you must be eligible for 2 year contract. Yet best buy people don't know if you can buy the phone in full. Let alone how much it costs. They just assume it'll be 799.99 like the current note 3.

    Technically, according to the contract you signed, if you cancel within 14 days you have to return the device as well. However, the fine print doesn't always get abided by. They have the option to let you keep the phone which apparently they did. Much like they will probably be skirting a lot of the fine print in this promo ( or at least interpreting it in a slightly more beneficial manner to the customer and salesperson).......... If you get the right BB employee.

    There's no reason for me to turn the phone in if I'm keeping service. I ordered one via AT&T though in case the BB promo doesn't pan out.
