    I know the pre-orders won't be live till later tonight (12 AM for most) but I figure getting a thread going where people can discuss their thoughts about their pre-order with their carrier/store in mind wouldn't hurt, right? .

    Sound off below if you're getting one... Oh don't forget to mention which color you're thinking of!

    Att is usually the most expensive. Nice to see they're not gouging us this year. Now if only we get the sleek Samsung box ;-)

    Can anyone confirm for me that AT&T still cripples Wireless/HD calling on unlocked devices that aren't AT&T branded?

    Yep.
    Balls...

    So what other differences are there in the Unlocked version vs. the Carrier Branded one?

    Carrier download their software on the phone. Referring to "bloat ware"

    I'm setting my alarm to midnight. I also just read an article and it referred to S NOTE and not Samsung Notes- not sure if that's really correct or just the writer doesn't really know the difference.

    I usually disable those any way, but the difference maker to me is the Wireless calling/HD voice. When I'm in a building that has no cell reception, but full WiFi coverage. Especially in my Fiancee's house.

    Sounds like you should snag the carrier version then. I always say it is better to have the phone function and work like you want versus an app or two of bloat (that you can usually disable) .

    That would be awesome to get our S Note back.

    If I am on a next plan (settled for an iPhone 7 plus last year after th n7 fiasco) can I take advantage of the deal for former note 7 owners?

    Yes, as long as you pay off your device as you have to trade it into Samsung.

    This link states that Samsung will give up to $425 for current phone of a former Note7 owner who purchases a Note8.

    That "up to" is what's scary. That's anything between 0 and 424. No guarantees. I've read threads where Samsung has refused to pay because of nonexistent issues with the traded phone.
