    I was at the verizon store when they opened this morning. Picked up the white 32gig, got 200 dollars off since i brought a crap old cell phone with me.

    Picked up the tech21 case and zagg screen protector.

    The case still makes this phone super slim.. keep in mind im not someone who thinks thinner is better though.

    Ive got charging and setting it up now. Disabled the usual apps.

    Phone came with 28 percent charge, i made several phones and stopped at the casino on the way home. Still had 26 percent when i plugged it in.

    There was a Samsung rep at tbe store, he was really nice, asked if he could take a pic of the saleslady setting up my phone.

    I was the first one in the door, and by the time i left 5 more people were there to get the note 5 (Tulsa Ok store in Tulsa Hills)

    The samsung rep said fast wireless charger should be released in September.

    Oh yeah, the clicky part of the Spen is addictive! Ill post more on this thread as i get the phone charged and set up.

    First of all, beautiful phone! I asked the manager what happens if my battery gets degraded and loses charge. .. since I'm used to keeping phones two to three years.

    His answer: we overnite you a new/refurbished phone if you're under warranty or extended warranty. And I always carry extended warranty.

    Folks... is this true based on your experience? They'll replace the phone?

    Sounds... sketchy!

    I'm sorry that I won't be able to give you a definitive answer, but I have never heard of any carrier replacing a phone simply because the battery in the device is old.

    Well I cancelled the order because they wanted to activate it in store. Forget that. What I don't get is that they will ship it to you but you can't walk in and just leave with the phone. I don't want to sit around and wait for them.

    Headed to Verizon store. They will let me walk out with it unactivated.

    Sent from my Note 4.
    My guy was really cool he popped open the top and slide the box tome he said their you go its activatrd you can set it up. So my fingers were the only ones that touched it through out the 45min process..

    I asked because I've never in all my years had a phone whose battery I could not replace.

    Like I posted... sounds sketchy.

    absolutely not. the only possible exception would be if the battery completely dies, and the phone can't turn on at all.

    I ordered the note 5 online on Tuesday and selected free next day shipping. However, TMO messed up and put ground delivery. I tried to cancel the order so I could do a store pick up for today. TMO said they couldn't do that. Now I'm stuck waiting until the 25th. I'm jealous that a lot of people already got theirs.

    Switched from an iPhone 6plus.
    Originally had an iPhone when the s6 came out and switched to the s6 because it was gorgeous. Couldn't handle the standby issues so went back to Apple. Now that the note 5 is out and it is so gorgeous I had to switch again. Hoping to have better luck this time.

    For people that say the iPhone is smooth and efficient - that is true - sometimes.

    My last iPhone was so laggy and the browser would crash consistently.

    Anyway - hoping to love the note !!

    Well that was a big freaking waste of time! BB can only upgrade to At$t next accounts. That would kill my unlimited data plan. Would have been nice of them to tell me that four days ago. I would have preordered with att.

    Such a killer device. Fast, really really fast.
    Touchwiz is awesome. (used to HATE touchwiz with a passion)

    Battery life seem VERY good. Let the haters hate. They are missing out on a killer, high quality, awesome machine.
    LOVE IT.

    Well battery today hasn't been great.... But first day is what it is. I have some work apps that eat battery so I am not expecting much.

    I knew I should have just pre-ordered.

    Went into my local Sprint to get a 64gb black and they were out of them. Guy took my number and said he'd call when they get them in. Hopefully they get some before the trade-in offer expires.

    I'm on the fence about the 32gb. my M7 is 32 now and still have about 8gb free after 2 years of having it. I'm not much of a stored media on my phone type of person but I don't want to get to a point where I have to start deleting stuff just to get things to work properly or install.

    I guess I have to wait for the 64 just to have peace of mind.

    Ok, I just got back from BestBuy. I called early afternoon because I had not received my e-mail and they told me that they did not have the phone. I went 2 to 3 hours before closing and low and behold my phone was there. I think they was just pacing the number of people they were dealing with and I would have gotten the e-mail tomorrow. The sale person was working a 14 hour shift. She was awesome!

    I went in and they had me wait about 15 minutes and they got some information while I was waiting. The lady called me over and asked how I was buying the phone. I told her 2yr contract price and I am with Sprint. She said thanks. I put my iPhone 3gs on the table along with my $50 deposit gift card. She processed the phone and without question processed the $200 gift card. They were out of the wireless charger and she said 10 are coming in tomorrow so I will be there when they open.

    So for my store you can get the $200 rebate without doing a lease or pay-over-time. She asked me if I wanted to use the $50 deposit card toward the purchase of the phone but not if I wanted to use the $200 rebate card. I assumed I could not use it but I should have asked since she had already given me the rebate card. Anyway I have a $200 gift card.

    Not sure Verizon will support Samsung Pay. I would steer clear from them.

    Picked up my GS6E+ from Best buy yesterday morning, there were about 6 people waiting for either the edge + or the note 5. The process went pretty smooth and I made sure they didn't touch my att grandfathered in unlimited data and 700 munites/unlimited text plan while putting the phone on the next 12 plan, I got the wireless charger (the old one) and also got the $200 credit for trading in my old $2 Nokia lumia 521 (old Tmobile prepaid phone) with no problem and they took the $56 in taxes out of the $200 gift card and told me I can use the $50 preorder gift card for whatever I wanted. After that process I then went and traded in my old note 3 and an old HTC one x seperately for $180 at customer service, so all together I got my phone, the charger and almost $400 in best buy credit through the whole visit woohoo!
