    Best Buy's app tonight has an add for the Note 7 preorder with a place to write your email address for preorder info as soon as it's available. I'm just wanting to see how people's (especially grandfathered unlimited data Verizon customers) experience is getting the phone through Best Buy. I'll hopefully order mine this weekend if I can get a Best Buy employee to guarantee that my plan won't be touched (as Verizon stated should be the case with their price hike this spring for grandfathered unlimited data customers).

    I've had good luck with my last 2 phones purchased through Best Buy. They were able to activate them with no problems (though I'm on Sprint, not Verizon) and had the phones in stock when they said they would.

    I tried ordering through Samsung and when I select the gift it adds the total of the gift to my order?

    Yeah you will be paying full retail for the carrier phone but no contract or payment breakouts.

    Oops. Figured it out, once you sign in it shows the gift as free.

    Any idea of when Best Buy will allow pre ordering on their site? Ive been checking since midnight and all I've been able to do is add my email to be contacted when available

    I am able to do not now. However the free gift is the watch. I thought it was a choice of the watch or 256gb memory card? I'd prefer the memory card.

    Update: I was able to pre order. But they only give the option to receive the watch as a gift ^^

    The BB site shows the 256gb card as an option for preorders.

    Just ordered mine. I always pay full retail because i am grandfathered ATT unlimited plan. Price is steep after taxes at 941.00 but the extra 32 gigs, water resistance, and gear fit 2 are a bonus and i will sell my Note 5 and Gear VR to make some of my money back. Plus 12 months interest free on my best buy card makes it sweeter. Blue coral. Hopefully Best buy will be very kind and ship that bad boy early. I doubt it, but it would be extremly nice to have before i leave for Miami on the 15th.

    I was unlimited with Verizon, but went to a 30GB plan for the family for several reasons:

    1. Tired of paying full price for phones
    2. Unlimited plan prevented using International Pass and local rates now provided for Canada / Mexico
    3. $50 less per month

    Unlimited was not worth the total cost for me. I still end up with about 12GB for my use, which is about what I used anyway.

    I am thinking they want you in the store for the memory card because activation of the line is required. I got a feeling that because i am not doing new activation or updating a carrier plan and buying outright i will not be eligible for the SD card. Best buy pulled this crap last year. The $200 gift card was only for new activation customers not buying outright. However, i was still able to get the free wireless charger.

    I looked at both Verizon and Best Buy pre-order and found that the Best Buy deal wasn't really such a deal.
    At Best Buy you get to choose a Fit2 or a EVO+ 256GB card but have to pay $349.00 up front.
    At Verizon no gift but you have an upfront payment of $0.00 and you can trade-in an old phone for a $300.00 credit to your monthly billing account.
    I do believe I will wait to see what the Gold unlocked version looks like before doing any purchasing.

    I tried to pre order, but I want the installment plan. Customer service said I have to go in store to do that... Not able to do that on their Web site. Guess I'm heading down to BB today.

    Why do they only offer the large size band? Seems stores are going to field lots of people needing to exchange for a smaller size...

    Everyone selling these phones requires the payment purchase plan to get the premiums.

    I paid it all upfront ($956.77) and I only got the Fit2 as a freebie. The memory card was not even an option.

    Yes, I said $956.77

    I preordered and automatically got the large band Fit2. I plan on giving the Fit2 to my son and I need a small size band. I hope Best Buy will exchange.
