    So the demise of the Note7 has raised issues which you all know. I don't like the other Samsung devices, I prefer the Note series. I temporarily got into the 32gig and was promised the 64 gig which is on
    BACKORDER, Waiting 3 months. Was to ship Dec 21st. Received text message from Verizon order canceled because Samsung is out. Seriously?
    Said to upgrade by the 24th. I am NOT.
    This is absolutely nuts. Hopefully statuswill change but I am not upgrading and they have not been charging me for the 32gig.

    OP... when you say Samsung 'retired' the Note 5... can you elaborate?

    I called Verizon and they said the Note 5 is not available for sale (at the moment)... but warranty replacements are available for those who have them. This could be due to the run-on to buy them after the debacle of the Note 7. Quite possibly, Samsung no longer is manufacturing the Note 5 and what's in inventory, is being held, as mentioned, in reserve for warranty purposes.

    Wow. I would have hoped they would continue the Note 5 for awhile to take up the slack until they can bring a new Note to market.

    You could find a used 64gb on swappa or ebay. I know its "used" but it could hold you over until the S8 comes out.

    I got a 64gb Note 5 off eBay, used, but was in excellent condition.

    Don't you imagine actual production was over a long time ago? Like before the Note 7's went into production? I don't know, but I imagine that it would be nearly as difficult to resurrect an old product as to tool up and start production for a new one... I could be wrong, but I think all the "new" Note 5's had been made some time ago...

    If it is true that Samsung has discontinued the Note 5--they will rue the day.

    No longer available. If Samsung has they aren't going to allow me to trade. Verizon said they have stopped manufacturing them
