    OK, Got my Verizon Note 7 in Black preordered. Verizon moved my upgrade date up to today so the Note 7 only cost me $363.00 including tax and a $40.00 upgrade fee. Better than $849.00 My upgrade date was 10/20/2016

    I'm off the bed.
    You did good ... My brain needs to unwind a bit before I can go to sleep. I am usually long asleep by now.

    I did not get that information but in looking at my receipt it is saying my data is $5 more than what it should be. I did the speedy checkout with no plan change.

    I was under the impression that getting a 2 year contract also raised your bill roughly $30 a month. The old math I saw when they first did away with 2 year contracts showed people saved roughly $40 over two years by paying for the phone in full with installments and getting a discount on their service. Also, the 2 year contract charges a $40 activation fee. I'm paying the phone off in full with an American Express Blue Cash Everyday card and I'll get 10% back as a statement credit. But I do wish they'd show the promos, because if the 256 SD card isn't included, that's gonna offset my savings using my card to buy it through Verizon.
    Thanks for sharing those numbers. I have been wondering if there would be any savings gong with the 2 year contract plan price for the phone and the monthly cost of that plan vs buying a phone outright. I know the activation fee can be waived when you purchase at their online site.

    On the current Verizon plan it would raise the cost by $20/mo


    On my legacy nationwide plan, there is no cost increase for going on contract. I pay $24 for 100 gigs of data plus another $15 for voice coverage and get subsidized phones (ie note 7 at $300)
    $20 a month for 24 months adds up to $480. Add the $299 and it brings it up to $779. Out of curiosity where did you find the $20/month stat (was it on your checkout page)?
    Looks like I'll have to do further research to see if that's the way I want to go...

    Did they charge you an early upgrade fee? The $363 seems like an odd number. If you were going with a 2 year contract that would have been $299. Are you paying a $20+ a month fee for 24 months (aka 2 years) which will essentially bring you up around the full price of the phone after those 24 months/2 years? Did you also get a free 256gb card or fit2 watch out of it (to make it a little more worth the cost)?

    Best Buy appears to have a better offer for 2 year contract. $390 cost and free 256GB card. Not seeing the card offer with Verizon, but they apparently were supposed to have it.

    Anybody pay full price to keep Nationwide unlimited data plan? Any tricks or tips or pitfalls? Did it verify you kept unlimited data?

    I'm surprised it cost 864. Verizon phone rep told me 840.

    Do you get phone before 19th this way or on the 19th?

    I tried this but it makes you put in your device imei number which is difficult to do since we don't have the phone yet lol. Guess we have to wait until the phone arrives?

    I don't understand why people are so eager to be the first kid on the block to own the latest and greatest toy. At a near $900 price, it is unlikely that there will be any shortage. I'm going to wait for the reviews and for possible early bugs to get worked out, not to also mention the chance to hold one before I buy it.

    Perhaps, early Samsung promotions would be an unsentimental to buy early, but if my memory serves me correctly, Best Buy usually has had a $200 gift card promotion, closer to the release of Notes in the past.

    Yes, you have to get your phone and receipt first.

    Which is one of the good things about Best Buy, they take care of all that and give you the card instead of hoop jumping. Same with the infamous trade in rebate program for the Note 4 if folks recall. The process through carriers was long and convoluted and instant with Best Buy.

    Well I say that, but do not know if Best Buy is doing that this time. They have for all previous offers though.

    Not sure you can do contract online but in stores they offered it to customers at a $20 charge for 24 months

    Thus why I'm going to avoid the preorder drama despite the gifts ?!?!

    Not for nothing this is the easy part !!

    Wait for those " Delivery " threads where everyone is refreshing their browsers every 20 secondd for an update of shipped or out for delivery haaaaa !!!!
    The drama is the best part lol. I'm waiting to see if there's gonna be a bogo. This isn't enough of an upgrade to go from my S7 edge.

    You will get it the same time as everyone else, just because you pay full price does not change when it ships.

    Because they aren't aiming this at you. Clearly a phone 6 months old isn't a huge upgrade. They are aiming the note 7 at note 5/4 users.

    You misunderstood. 3 separate issues so I skipped lines between them.

    I mean does anyone who orders early no matter how they pay get the phone before the 19th? Since I asked some reading I've done sounds like you do not get it any earlier than those who purchase in store day 1.

    Sometimes they ship early, sometimes they do not. Most people preorder to avoid the hassle of having to go in store.

    Oh I see. I hate waiting for things in the mail but the store is a drag too. Thanks for the explanation.

    Verizon charges upgrade fees regardless of service contract, dpp, or full retail.
