    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.
    The phone you traded in was old phone or did you do a trade through your jump program?

    Traded in an old Nexus 4 through Gazelle.com. Pre-ordered the phone via T-mo's site and paid for it in full.

    Re the ETF...

    I talked to 2 different att reps today - one on chat and one in store. I described this exact scenario to them...

    - Add a line to my current 10gb share plan for $299.
    - $35 (or whatever) activation fee
    - keep 4th line for 1 month at $40 on share plan
    - cancel 4th line for $325 after 1 month
    - after paying ETF, the device is mine

    Total payments- $700

    The att reps had no idea about the Samsung rebate, so I just left that out of the equation.

    I then went to BB and described the above, but with their $200 GC, net paid would only be $500. The BB reps were like me, thinking that's too good to be true, but agreed with the math. The part they offered as a caution is if att somehow blocks the cancelled IMEI to where that cancelled device could not later be swapped out to my active/primary line or flagged my account for fraud to not me to buy any more phones through them.

    So... Has anyone ETF'ed a device with att and later used that device as a hardware swap with att?

    No it won't count, you are not getting a trade in credit for a jump phone.

    So are you saying Samsung needs to see dollar number for trade in value?

    I just pre-ordered the Verizon Note 4 in Charcoal Black at my local BB in San Diego. Like other posts mentioned, they charged me $50 for a gift card as deposit to be used towards the phone at pickup. I asked about the $200 promo and both clerks mentioned that it was for *any* smart phone as long as it was still in working condition without a cracked body or screen. I showed them my pristine Moto Droid X and they said it would be fine for trade in. I'm going to hang onto my S3 as a backup. They told me that I would receive an email on or before 10/23 for pickup. <thanks Verizon >
    I'm still going to check Costco this weekend to see if they will have a comparable promo as I prefer to buy from them.

    Good luck!

    If you're responding to me, it's really that not that much effort for getting an N4 for $500.

    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.
    The two I spoke two at bb said any working phone. I asked both about an iPhone 3G, not even 3gs, and they both said any working phone.

    I'm in the camp of I'll believe it when I see it, and have the $200 and phone in hand. I'm bringing the 3G and the Nexus 4. I'll try the 3G and see what happens.

    You think that's bad, I have my daughter's old pantech crossover that I plan on trying to trade in (I also have an S2). It's technically a smart phone, but it was always a piece of junk.

    Your Smartphone has to be on Best Buy's trade in data base. If it is on there and it is worth 0 dollars. It is still eligible.

    I have T-MOBILE and am in the JUMP program. I went to the local T-MOBILE store and asked about the $200 rebate. I have a Google Nexus Samsung SPH-D720 phone for the trade-in.
    The agent didn't know about the rebate offer until I showed him the web page on my Galaxy S4. Then he said I couldn't trade in two phones at one time. Later he admitted that he had no clue and emailed a Samsung representative for help. He said he'll get back to me tomorrow.

    Nowhere on the terms and conditions did it mention any restrictions about the T-Mobile Jump program.

    Does anyone have experience with this scenario? To me, it seems that Samsung wants to sell more expensive phones and is using the offer as an incentive to upgrade to the Note 4. I'm basically happy with my S4 and have a $375 balance left on my account. By jumping to the Note, T-Mobile will pay off my S4 and then I start all over with a balance of $750. The incentive offer is separate from T-Mobile. But $200 off will spur me to upgrade.

    Is there a reason to wait a full month before canceling a new line? Is it because you get some portion discounted off the ETF? And yea I also thought it's too good to be true, but the numbers do work out. Maybe I should drop by ATT today and ask about what happens to your phone if you go through ETF and what the catches are.
