    Verizon store employees only want to deal with you if they are making money off you. They have right out lied to me. I wouldn't trust a corporate Verizon store employee ever.

    I am not sure if the reps are trained not to say "I don't know" when they don't know the answer. In my experience, they just make up an answer whenever they don't know the answer to our queries.

    I visited a Best Buy this evening and spoke to the Samsung rep, who is a Verizon customer. He said even HE cannot get his hands on the N4 until the 23rd. He's as frustrated as all of us. SIGH. Guess we just have to wait it out.
    This wait is nothing. The real pain lies in waiting for the OTA upgrades which seem to take forever. I have a feeling we will have to wait months after some other carriers get their Lollipop upgrade before we get ours. And I am not going to root my phone just to get a custom ROM.

    It is ok. Gives me something to look forward to. I'll take the day off and wait for FedEx. Then be super excited as I open the box for the first time.

    Wait time is almost over.
    I am toying with the idea of taking a day off too ...lol

    Lol. I'm not toying with it. It's happening. I already told my boss. I won't be in as soon as I know the date FedEx is coming. I called it "new phone day"

    You could always call customer retention. That's what I did and they let me edge a year and a half before my contact was eligible. There it's always a way.
    Was that your 1st Edge agreement? While that's always an option, it's a gamble and you would probably only be able to get away with it a few times before they stop you in your tracks. Prior to coming to VZW, I was with Tmo for 12 yrs. Every time I wanted to upgrade early, I would speak to someone in customer retention and they would always give me an early upgrade, but after getting my way countless times, they put an end to it. I basically told them if they didn't allow me an early upgrade, I had every intention of leaving and they still didn't budge lol. I don't blame them for putting an end to it, and to be honest, I would've left eventually anyway. Once I left NYC for PA, my data coverage went from great to terrible!

    I have done it a several times but I have 5 lines. So I mix it up. I have been with them for years. Never had an issue. Althoguh I suspect eventually they will catch on. I do it rarely though. I most often pay full price for devices throughout the year. Most recently the G3. In will sell the g3 when the note 4 arrives.

    I would want to do it every 12 months lol! I'll just keep my fingers crossed that by the time I want to Edge up things have changed... AGAIN!!

    Let's face it the current iteration of the edge plan sucks. How honey explained it is how I understand it. You have to trade in your phone in order to edge up, so the idea of paying it off early and selling it won't work. At least I can't see how they can change it again and make it any worse so I would think this would be it for changes.

    Are people who are trading in their phones to edge up counting that as a trade in phone for the Samsung phone trade in promotion? I thought it wouldn't be eligible for that but maybe I'm wrong?

    Well since Best Buy didn't get any stock for walk ins, I just decided to preorder on Verizon's website. And like Prakash99, I may take that day off for "new phone day". Lol

    From what I understand in order to edge up sooner than 24 months they want at least 75% paid for the device plus the device itself even if you've paid 100%. The only way you can keep the device is if you hold onto it for the full 24 months.

    I'm going to root immediately, debloat it and wait for Sbreen over at XDA to get his hands on the next firmware update... He usually releases the new firmware before Verizon actually does haha.

    No headphones, go figure, granted I don't know if I'd want to pay the extra $50 or so for the quality of headphones that they include with phones.

    This is in part what makes the darned case decision so hard...not the tempered glass decision...not struggling really with that one. But this thing is so thin as we can see in the vid...to bulk it up too much seems sinful. I gotta have some protection for it...I don't see running naked as an option but the more I look at photos and especially videos where you can see it against a hand or with something else for reference....it is just so thin...so light...maybe neat is the way to describe it. I just can't see myself trying to bulk it up.

    They are OK. I use em while at work since I can fit em in my pocket but I wouldn't pay $50 for them. Also aren't they $30 on the website.


    At least Verizon gets the original box lol

    I've been going naked with my phones since my s2 and it's been fine.
