    I want a Note 4 but can't justify paying the full price for it right now. The Black Friday weekend didn't seem to yield any great deals for the Note 4.

    When is the Note 4 likely to drop to a lower price on and off contract? I'm out of contract and would consider jumping on it even if it dropped $100, but currently its $299 on contract.

    Not likely at least until 3 or 4 months from now. You might see Christmas deals though.

    Seems to me that individual carriers have already been offering one deal or another resulting in drops of $100 with some stipulations. They have been offering higher credits for return of an older phone as well. I would expect more for Christmas or just after. So far from what I have read it has been a less than satisfying holiday retail season across the board.

    Not sure what you mean. The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was free ar on contract on Black Friday weekend. It is unlikely to get cheaper in the near future.

    All carriers offer payment plans, if you are so inclined. They are either 0 or very little down.

    If Apple drops the price of their iPhone 6's Samsung will follow suit just like they did with the $200 trade in rebate but I don't think it's likely Apple will drop their prices because the iPhone 6's are selling very well. So far the best deal on a Note 4 was the $200 trade in, on contract was $99.

    Exactly; it was Drod Turbo, that was free not the Note (talking about Verizon Verizon, not a Verizon reseller).

    Amazon.com had Verizon Note 4 for $200 all Black Friday--Cyber Monday week (it is back up to $300 now).

    You know why it is expensive? Because it's worth it.

    I like the edge program with Verizon. No down, no upgrade fees, no activation fees. Can upgrade within a time frame and it is great. I believe eventually there will no longer be subiside pricing. They don't have subiside pricing in Europe. I prefer being able to have this savings as well as an additional discount. For me it saves and I have my corporate discount too

    I can't figure out where any of the carriers zero down and pay full price for the phone plans is less expensive than getting a subsidized phone because you need the service to use the phone anyway. I'm on AT&T and I looked at Sprint & T-Mobile buy the device at full price plans and when I included the monthly phone payment they were both more expensive than my current plan. Same for AT&T and Verizon. I get a new subsidized phone every 2 years and I'm not able to see how anyone can save money using the zero down pay full price plans any of the carriers offer. The only advantage to these plans I can see is you can upgrade your device sooner than 2 years which I would not pay a monthly premium to do.

    The idea isn't to get the phones cheaper. You pay less for your monthly service with the flex plan. When my gf contract was up she was going to get a subsidized phone but they were going to add 40 a month to the bill. It's about the same either way and you can swap whenever you want if you are willing to pay the phone off

    My total monthly expense was higher when I added the 24 month phone payment plan to the discounted monthly service plan than what I pay monthly for just the service plan with a subsidized phone. Depending on the carrier the phone was in the mid $700 to $825 to purchase it and pay for it over 24 months. If I could have saved money by buying the phone outright over 24 months because of the monthly service plan being less that's what I would have done. Maybe the fact that I have 2 lines changes the equation.

    It highly depends on the plan. On att, if I go with subsidized plan it only adds $15 per month on my 3gb plan. So for note I paid $99 ($200 trade in for 4 year old pH) on 2 year contract and will pay $15 per month for 24 months. So basically paid $99 + $360 (15*24) + taxes... Not a bad deal I think.

    Because...if you use ATT next you don't sign a "contract" thus allowing you to get the 10 line 10 gig plan for 160. You can up your data to 30 gig for 33 extra bucks. On contract that same plan is 260 and you get the subsidized phone that you pay for up front...without the 20 extra gigs of data. When we re-uped with ATT my buddies would Not let me sign a contract cause you save a few hundred bucks over the course of the year if you get the next phones. The contract is Not with the plan...it's with the phone.

    The advantage is that on 10gb or higher they offer a $25/mo discount for off contract /edge /next. Over 2 years, that is $600 . add to it that you don't have to pay upgrade fees. It does work out to be cheaper in some situations.

    Oh....and you get a new subsidized phone every 2 years...on the next plan...put a little down and pay off you phone in a year and you are eligible to get a new phone on the next plan. You can upgrade phones whenever you want and trade in the old one. Year after year or sooner. It's up to you. I even know of some people that just add a line for 15 bucks and get a new phone. That's another advantage I forgot. On contract a smart phone is $40 a month per line . On next plan I pay $15 a month for my Note 4.

    I'm a Sprint customer, out of contract. The only reason I stay with Sprint is that I have unlimited data/text and more minutes than I'll ever use for $50 a month (SERO legacy customer).

    I prefer the on contract deals because I plan on keeping the service. I got my S3 a little over 2 years ago and it still runs quite well all things considered, I never even bothered rooting it like I did my previous phone (Evo 4G). I got a special on the S3 for like $1 on contract, and it had been out about 4-5 months at that time. Hoping that the Note 4 drops to $99 or lower in the next couple of months.

    This is the type of thing I'm talking about - I'm hoping to see more deals and then go to Sprint's retention department and see if they'll match. I might bite at $199 on a new 2 yr contract.

    As I stated before, it was free ar on contract. You do not have to pay anything above the monthly on contract pricing.

    See post 6 for now details.
