    Now, because of the current situation with the Note 7, do you think, or what do you think, about another version being offered in a few more months, for a cheaper price?

    Or do you think that if the Note 8, or whatever the supposed successor of the now Failed Note 7 does get release, we would see it at a less expensive price point, in order to try to help pick up sales again?

    I'm not even mentioning the S7 or supposed to be next S8 because it's considered a different class of device. Premium yes, but still not the same class as the Note.

    It would be nice to see this device finally fixed and re-released at a cheaper price under a different name or even the next iteration of the Note, be release at a less expensive price point.

    I wondered about that myself. Samsung needs a good device that will help their brand. The S8 won't be out until next year, so they need something soon.

    And for those of us that pay for our phones over 24 months, if I get a S7 Edge this weekend to replace my Note 7, and a new-and-improved, non-explosive note comes out in a couple months, it doesn't matter because I'm stuck paying on the S7 Edge. One of the many reasons I am so annoyed by this.

    I don't think there will be another Note, but if there is I would be shocked if it was cheaper.

    Note another Note?? I hope not. Fills a niche... Finally got my attention and would have been the first Samsung I wanted to buy.

    Maybe they'll do the future Note in Tizen. It was the Samsung features of the pen that sold the phone more than the Android features so maybe.

    I thought the Note 7 was such a hit... to even be phone of year... I thought maybe it would force Apple to enable their pen used in their iPad Pro on next gen iPhone Plus!

    I am in basically the same boat, as are many, and my solution was to buy a refurbished S7Edge on ebay. Of course I don't know yet if I am going to have an issue with the refurb, but I can send it back if I do. That said, my line will not be tied to Verizon paying off a 24-month device contract on a phone that I do not even want. This way, if a new awesome Note or Note type phone is released, I can jump on it and possibly get a hundred bucks selling the refurb.

    I do think there will be another huge phone with an s-pen - but it will have substantial differences and a different name.

    This is my issue right now. My Fiancee doesn't want me spending the money on a device that isn't really the one I want, but unfortunately, there's nothing out there like the Note for all it has to offer as a complete package. I toyed with the idea of getting the S7 Edge, but then I don't want to spend the money on that phone now, and then shell out another possible $900+ for another device in about 9 months.

    I really hope they keep the note line going by next year, and just be very thorough and diligent with their R & D and QC of it from here on out.

    9 months sounds like it's so far away, but my wedding is in just over 365 days, so it's not too bad I guess, LOL.

    You might want to do what I am doing and get a less expensive used phone to hold you over. And congratulations on your upcoming wedding

    Spend $400 on a OnePlus3 to tie you over... Or even a deal like skatergirl's... and put the His and Her Note 8 on your wedding registry. Problem solved.

    Do you have a link to the seller or store on eBay that you are looking at the S7E?

    Yeah, I am considering a device no more than $400. I will need to pay it outright.

    Ideally, I'd like it to have wireless charging, USB-C, and expandable memory. And not that it's a deal breaker, I'd like it to be able to work with the Gear VR I just received too.

    Any suggestions that you know of that will fit these criteria? Android devices are all new to me.

    I wouldn't expect the Note 8 to be generally less expensive but I'd not be surprised if Samsung offers some kind of nice rebate or something equivalent to folks that had a Note 7 registered (or can somehow prove they'd purchased a Note 7).

    I think the Note 7 will not be mentioned or linked to in any way. Not even good faith legacy discounts.

    Their best bet to bridge is go back to replaceable batteries, but likely not what happens. They have an Apple pathology that includes forcing two year retirement curves with sealed batteries.

    The problem with that logic is what if less or even none buy your product? Seems a tunnel visioned approach, but I'm bitter right now.

    What about the Samsung A8? Can an International unlocked version work on AT&T or the others? It has pretty good specs.

    Congratulations!
    I got the Note5 yesterday at Verizon. I had the 4 before the 7 and skipped the 5.
    Glad it was there. Two other customers were there with their 7's too and they too got the Note5. I am content and Verizon has been great. I feel bad for the carriers.
    I just hope everyone is polite and patient.
    I have a good friend who works at the Norterra location and some customers act like it's Verizon fault and take it out on the reps. We all need to be kind and thoughtful.! It's a stressful time for us the consumer as well as our carriers.
    Be nice. If you were in their shoes how would you like to be treated?
    No one has ever seen a phone recall like this. Be nice to your rep

    Thank you! I checked it out, unfortunately, for whatever reason, the AT&T phones are closer to $500 or more. I'm trying to stay around $400 since this is supposed to be a temporary device till the next note iteration. Otherwise I'll have to stick with the device for at least 2 years and so far there's nothing else out for me that makes me want to look forward to keeping it for that long.

    Well darn it ... I will keep a look out for you this morning to see if I can find one for less. Have you tried Offer Up? You may find a phone right there in your area. You can look online or download the app.

    You are absolutely correct. Verizon employees I am sure have been put through the ringer on this situation and it is not their fault. I think it was great that Verizon made it so that all these returns can be handled online and through a return box. Makes it much easier for the foot soldiers in the stores and even on the phone.

    You're welcome and I did not know about Offer Up until July when we were doing an estate sale for my mom who had to downsize. I sold my Note 4 from that app, ironically just a few days before Samsung said game over, but that is Okay ... I spent $100 more than what I got for the Note 4 for the refurbished S7Edge and at least I will feel I still have a bit of Note left with me because of the curves and all glass.
