    I signed up for the "preorder" as there seems to be no downside to doing so. I was torn between this and the next iPhone. They don't take any credit card info, so I'm not on the hook for anything anyway.

    Does anyone know if opting for the Fit Gear makes you on the hook for another Verizon data plan?

    There seems to be conflicting views on what phone you can trade in. If they give me $200 for my HTC Thunderbolt I'll be laughing my way out the door.
    If you check your device on their trade in page, and it comes up with any value greater than $0, then you are in for $200 gift card. My Note 2 (!!!!!) is worth $30, so it will get me a $200 gift card.

    The fit gear does NOT require a service plan of any kind. It is directly tied to the phone and cannot function without a Bluetooth connection. Some of the confustion is the watch that AT&T is giving away (also a gear, but different) has an LTE radio in it, and can function independent of a Bluetooth connection. That means it needs a service plan... but only that 1 watch via AT&T, not the fit.

    Awesome tip. I'm going to do the same. But if you have to pay 50 and then pay another 40 for targets higher price is does start to whittle the discount down.
    I called Target. The rep said no prepaid cellphones. Main carriers only. That phone will not count, technically.

    They obviously don't have a clue. The Samsung Jitterbug 3 is on their list and it is ONLY available on a prepaid service (Great Call is the service). Besides, phones aren't marked "PREPAID" on them. People should stop calling,

    I'm still debating on getting the SD card or gear fit. Definitely don't need 256GB nor a fitness watch. Might just get the SD card and sell it.

    This doesn't make sense. For many phones they have no clue if a phone was used on prepaid service or not. So I wouldn't listen to a rep who makes a statement like that.

    Anybody have any updated information about this preorder? When i enter my Verizon credentials it doesn't get me past that screen. I may have to just pre-order through Verizon or Best Buy.

    Hopefully Target has stock to cover pre-orders. We'll find out soon.

    Have a preorder at target. Called the store today to make sure I could purchase with a Sprint two year contract price. (I'm with Sprint 10 years) she said Sprint does not allow this any longer as if two weeks ago. Does not make sense. My assumption is I buy at $399, get a $50 rebate from Sprint, get a $100 dollar target card. Am I wrong?

    Also, would my old 4s iphone also qualify me for $200?
    Thanks

    I don't think they know what they're talking about and we'll just have to wait until release day to get the real answers. On the Sprint website you can clearly upgrade to the Note 7 on the 2-year contract price. I'm not sure if we'll still be eligible for the $50 rebate and will probably have to pay an activation/upgrade fee, which would eat into the savings. However, a $100 gift card and $200 phone trade it would still work out to our advantage. I don't see a Sprint iPhone 4s on the list of accepted devices for the $200 trade in but, again, who knows. Unfortunately, it may just come down to each store and be dependent on how knowledgeable the rep is.

    At this point, I'm not too confident I'll be able to do the 2-year agreement and get all of the promotions, but I'm hopeful!

    Missed the sale on BB for the unlocked LG. Scurrying to find a working cell phone on the list. Any one else with links or tips, I would appreciate it. Suppose I can bite the bullet and pay $80 for the LG but I liked it better at $50. Not finding much locally on craigslist.

    I thought about cancelling and picking up from the ATT store on release if Target doesn't have stock but that gift card is too tempting. I have a 9 month old, that $100 gift card will cover some diapers and formula.

    I'm curious about the trade-in part, wonder if I'm seeing the same thing others are. When I first saw about this deal, I didn't see any of my old phones I have laying around listed, so I just figured I wouldn't mess with it. Then I looked again, and did see the HTC One M7 listed, which I have my old one in good shape, so I decided to go ahead and pre-order, and do this deal. Then I was looking again today, and didn't see it again, then I looked again and I did, and I figured out why.

    At the top of the page, there is a box to search for your device. If I type in HTC One M7, it comes up with nothing, if I just type in HTC One, it comes up with a number of devices, basically most every One device from the One Max on. If I click on the "Phones" icon near the top, right next to "Tablets","Games","Consoles", etc...; and then choose HTC as my manufacturer, it also is not listed anywhere there. However, if I scroll down the page, past the "How It Works" heading with the 3 images briefly explaining the program, to where there is a heading that says "Products", under that heading there are two large pictures that link to Phones and Tablets. If I click the Phones link, then under the "Brand" heading that comes up click "HTC", I get 8 listings, and the second one from the left in the top row is "One M7 (2013) - AT&T" which is my exact device. Right now, I can't get it to give me a quote, because it's screwed up and asks for a Storage Capacity, but doesn't actually give you any options for Storage Capacity; but when I first looked into it about a week ago, it wasn't screwed up and gave me a quote of something like $41, I can't remember the exact amount.

    I'm just wondering if others see this the same way. I would think since it's listed and it does (or did) give me a price, I should be okay to use it. It's just strange, because it's the only one I've noted that's this way, other phones that show up under that bottom listing, also show up elsewhere.

    Weird. HTC M7 was there when I ordered. Then it disappeared. Now it's back? I sold mine thinking it no longer get qualified.

    The pre-order is closed. Those of us who got in should be okay I think. I have an email confirmation.

    No and I called and all they said was they should be available on the 19th. Really want that 200 credit and Gift Card but their policies are tough to digest.

    Nope, you must add a line or have an upgrade available. I'm with Verizon same situation... I think this was the best deal going.

    Very limited. I was looking to dump an old cheap Samsung but not on the list. "ANY" Smartphone is quite misleading. Maybe the title of this thread needs to be clarified to "ANY SMARTPHONE ON THEIR LIST"
    bestbuy had something similar last year for the note 5. i took in a Blackberry 9650, and got the advertised trade in offer + the value of the phone (which was like $20) heheh.

    You can still get the $200 trade in without pre-ordering.
