    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 >
    ...

    Good luck!
    BestBuy told me the same thing..."ANY" smartphone that turns on, works without cracked screen would get me $200.00. The in-store Ad says the same ("ANY").

    Kinda worries me but I'll just play stupid (easy for me) and nicely keep pushing it up the chain of command if the rep doesn't want to honor their Ad. Just worry they might want try to check "trade-in" value but that is not part of the Ad/deal.

    As long as it's not part of the deal they can't be making up their own rules. Although it does mention something about trade in value but that's for Samsung not Best Buy. Hopefully they don't go interpreting it however they feel like. So from what people told me earlier, as long as the phone exists in their system and your phone isn't all banged up and broken, it SHOULD be accepted.

    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.
    As someone else said only if they try to make you return the phone. But like I said I had service for Like 8 days and told them to cancel and charge me ETF. In fact I should probably buy out of my current contract too....

    I talked to another rep this morning via chat and asked about the ETF and the phone under a different guise (setting it up as an innocent conversation, not pointing out the deal one could get).

    Here's the tail off the chart (paraphrased)...

    Me - so what happens to the phone aster l after I cancel?

    Rep - the phone is yours as you have bought out your contact with att

    Me - so I'm "stuck" with that phone

    Rep - yes, it is yours and no longer is rutted to att

    Me - could I try to sell it to recoup some of my ETF?

    Rep - yes, the phone is no longer tied to attend

    Me - could I swap that cancelled phone out to one of my other lines that has an older phone?

    Rep - yes, you could do that too - the phone is yours to do whatever with


    I'm going to go by my local att store later and pose the same innocent scenario to a rep.

    Is the AT&T note 4 only available to ship and not store pick up? If so can I still do the trade in promotion? Thanks

    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.
    I'm running into same scenario, I agree with you Samsung wants to claim that they sold x millions at launch so our trade should count. I am planning to order it today, it's worth trying to get that $200.

    You have to order in store it doesn't give the option to pickup in store on the website.

    So here is my dilemma, hopefully someone can shed some light on it.

    I pre-ordered from AT&T, and it looks like my phone is backordered and it might not come in this week. Does anyone know if I can try to get one in-store instead, but still get the Samsung $200 promo?

    If you keep your pre-order you should be able to. Promo States it should be Pre ordered.

    So basically in-store isn't an option? Or can I leave it pre-ordered and somehow get one in the store?

    No I think you may be able to order in store for in store pick up.

    I just bought a Motorola RAZR M on eBay for $59 that I am planning to trade in at my Verizon store and hang onto my N2. It has a value of $16 on Verizon and $25 on BB. In case Verizon doesn't honor that value, has it been determined whether you can preorder from a carrier and trade in at BB and still qualify for the Samsung promo?

    Anybody know what happens if i have a phone to trade in (thunderbolt) but Verizon says its only worth $9. Will i just get a rebate from Samsung for $190 which would make the rebate only $199 or do i not qualify at all?

    I believe if you are doing the promo through best buy, as long as it's in the system you get $200. If you do the promo through samsung by mailing in the form and such, it must have a trade in value of $10 or more. Anything less should be disqualified.

    So what trade in receipt do we provide? Can you do Gazelle? Is the receipt provided from Verizon online with the appraised price enough? The Samsung promotion text is fairly vague and when I emailed them to ask the question they told me to read the terms and conditions.

    Anyone trade their device at Tmobile store? I just pre order today and want to make sure all the paperwork i receive are okay to submit the samsung offer. Basically they gave me a receipt of pre order and the device recovery program on the same sheet with $12 value. I still need to send to Tmobile on prepaid box.

    Same issue. Emailed site admistrator (Prize Logic) and they are telling me that I have to mail my submission in if the site isn't accepting it. Still trying to escalate for a real solution.

    So when you do it online, do you need to scan and upload the receipt for both the Galaxy Note 4 and the trade in value? or is it just entering the data online?

    So I just left best buy and the guy there said the phone value must be minimum 10 dollars. Another branch I've been to said any working phone. Tried to push back a little saying the minimum value is for dealing direct with Samsung but they insisted it is best buy also.

    So is this only for pre orders or has anyone heard about them extending it until two weeks or so from release?

    Oh? In the last few pages I I haven't read about an extension. As far as I know it's pre order only.
