    In the past, VZ would give you the most current or next in line phone usually from the same company's phone you're now using. Like from the S3 to S4.

    Now... truthfully from a long time customer of Verizon...

    VZ is doing anything and everything to make it much more difficult to obtain an extended warranty replacement, especially if you think the battery has degraded much farther than VZ... thinks! They blame the rules on Samsung but from my experience, VZ is simply playing hardball and making replacement under extended warranty even more of a 'trying' experience than ever before.
    This is very unfortunate to hear.

    This is one reason why I left Verizon. I always had horrible customer service with them. Almost as bad as sprint.
    With Verizon, I called it "Top of the Hill Arrogance" and switched to AT&T after almost 21 years with Verizon... I started with Verizon when I was a Medical Electronics Field Service Engineer and they gave me my first Motorola bag phone... God, did I have to bring that up? (I still have that bag phone, btw)

    Dug into my closet, did a major dusting job then read the Mfgr date - Nov 1989! Back when Verizon was Nynex!!!

    It's going to be hard to give up my note 5 for the note 8!-circa_1990.jpg

    I titled this one "My First Cell Phone" - God, am I old! In a couple of previous posts, I've stated that I had been with Verizon for 25 years before switching to AT&T, yet I kept thinking God, is that really possible? There it is!!!

    I'm all in for a rear mount finger print scanner because my Note 5 and S7 FP scanners are junk compared to the rear mount on other phones I've had. Aside from that I love my Note 5 so much that my S7 has been sitting in a drawer until yesterday when it got Nougat and I am really loving this update. Can't wait for my Note to get it!

    Isn't the S8 going to have a finger print scanner imbedded under the glass panel on the from?

    Rumor Control can't seem to make up their minds - I have heard what you're saying but I've also seen pictures of the rear mounted button, so who really knows what it will end up being. I held a Google Pixel phone and it really wasn't that bad to access the rear mounted fingerprint sensor on that. I could handle it if that's what happens...

    Note 8 will be a monstor of a phone. Upgrading from Note 5 will be HUGE.

    My at&t Note 5 is best phone I've owned and its paid off. S7 edge lasted less than 72 hrs. The only thing I neeed to do is replace the battery. Will have it done for about 60.00 and I'm good for what I do. 64gb with additional 30gb of free cloud coverage that is backed up on laptop does me just fine. I would hope in lieu of the Note 7 problems, Samsung would not increase cost very much to regain any lost customer base and encourage previous note owners to upgrade. Is it possible to wireless charge with aluminum body?
