    Has anyone successfully pre-ordered an off-contact phone at full price for prepaid? You can't do it online and I've seen a post where someone said you have to call or go to a carrier store.

    But I'd like to know if this is possible and what the costs are (initial deposit, etc.)... from T-Mobile's website it says you'd have to pay for the phone and one month if service.
    Yes, I pre-ordered the Note 4 from T-mobile the day it went up online. Just choose that you have excellent credit in the check out and you will be able to order it online. Select pay full amount as well.

    $875 total cost for me. $750 for the phone, $12 Express shipping, $54 taxes, $10 Sim Kit and $50 deposit. I chose the $40 plan but I didn't have to pay for that in advance. As soon as I get the phone, I'll call up t-mobile and tell them that I don't want their service, I should get the $50 deposit back. I'm going to use the phone on MetroPCS.

    If you're going to use T-Mobile's pre-paid service, I would guess you just need to cancel the new account they open up and use the T-mobile sim you already have.

    Thanks! I've been on that pre-order page many times but didn't follow it all the way to checkout to see if I could pay full price. Unsurprisingly, T-Mo's site sure does give you the impression that you can only pre-order if you're willing to be a postpaid customer.

    Thanks again!

    You are not alone. I didn't check to see if it is backordered but apparently more ppl are ordering than originally thought. When I did a fake check out it still said it would ship on or by the 14th so who knows.

    You know, placed the pre-order and then had so many problems with the website, that I called them and cancelled. (That was a bit of a nightmare, too! And 2 days later, I still don't have notice confirming the cancellation!) I'll be just as happy to walk into the store and do things in person. I may just keep my S4 as a backup, but if not, the prices on eBay will likely exceed the $200, especially if I sell it as a bundled group with accessories. It certainly won't be much less.

    On the phone, the CSR tried to point out that the store might run out of them and the preorder was safer. Yeah, right. Hasn't happened to me yet, but if it means I wind up going to another store or waiting an extra week until they restock, I can live with that, too. The Note 4 sure isn't selling the entire production run out.

    (I recognize that not everyone has a late-model, good condition phone to sell and the $200 offer may be of more importance as a result...)

    **Okay, take this with a grain of salt**

    I called T-Mo today on a billing issue and asked about the Note 4 pre orders as far as when it would ship out. The representative who seemed fairly competent stated that the phone doesn't officially get released until the 17th so they would start shipping phones out on the 17th per your shipping selection. He stated if I chose expedited, the earliest I would receive my device is Monday the 20th.

    I don't know if this is true as I never pre ordered a device before but if so, that's pretty crappy. Shouldn't we get the phones ON the 17th? Why would they not ship them earlier so those who pre ordered received their devices on launch day. I saw on At&t's site it stated pre orders should ship by 10/14. Can anyone shed some light on this.

    I would have called that representative a certified troll. I think they say all that to cover their behinds if something goes wrong. But from what I can tell carriers generally ship out so they are at your door step on release. Now other stores like BB can't send until they are released. I'm all reality we are just all impatient and want our phones but we won't know when it will really ship until...well...it ships.

    Yeah I hope so because that would suck. I could only imagine they have company line they must repeat to customers in order to save face.

    Well I just got off the phone with a t mobile supervisor and she said that the note 4 will get to everyone that per ordered it on the 17th due to the fact that t mobile made the mistake of saying that they would ship it out on the 10th and I also told her that I did the ups ground and she said that I will be getting it on the 17th because of their mistake on the release date let's see... I think it's all B.S
