    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!

    So ordering through best buy you get $150 off and a promotional item?

    Can I buy at best buy for Verizon with monthly payments with the discount? Never pre-ordered through best buy being on a carrier. Thanks!

    Usually Best Buy does offer better pre-order bonuses then Verizon direct. If you go through Verizon you can't get the perks from Best Buy.

    I had hoped for a silver option, but black looks good. I'll be staying up late to order mine tonight!

    My last question. Verizon has waived my next upgrade fee and is noted on my account.

    I plan to pre-order through best buy for the cheaper price and promo item. This will put it at roughly 32 bucks a month on my Verizon bill? If I get charged an upgrade fee I'll just contact Verizon. Just making sure this all seems right before I order tonight.

    Of course Best Buy is usually the cheapest at launch/preorder but don't expect to be one of the first with the phone. They are usually the slowest to ship and pick up in store can be iffy. But hell my S8 Plus is holding strong.

    Also usually with Best Buy you pay the taxes up front (at least I had to with the S8+).

    Have any VZW customers ever had BestBuy inadvertently change their plan when upgrading a device thru them? A VZW (not BB) rep did in the past, and right now VZW is really pushing their unlimited plans, which I absolutely do not want.

    be careful they will try to change your plan. Just keep telling them You just want the phone on your plan thats it no changes. Dont do add ons as far as insurance even if you want it. Do it after on your own or go to the vzw store after to add the insurance. that way its plain and simple. Upgrade/add on to your account nothing else.

    The safest way is to do it all online...make sure at the end it says something to the effect of "keep current plan"

    Thanks. Good to know. It's on notify status at this point but still want to check into getting the 128GB version as I have used International phone models on Straight Talk, just need to verify 4G/LTE bands.

    It went fine when I ordered the S8+ through them.

    I have yet to see that there will be a 128gb version. I’ve only seen 64gb everywhere Ive looked.

    I am wondering why bestbuy is charging $999 for the sprint version without contract, while sprint it will be $960. Any takers?

    Will the unlocked version work on Verizon at all or do I specifically need the unlocked version?

    Fyi, the fine print states that the $150 savings do not apply to the unlocked version.

    this is my first preorder... going through best buy for the second time. I was debating a few things, one being that there is going to be a new gear vr to fit the note8, but nothing else is changed on it. second, was to wait and see if there are any good deals for the holidays, but I think I want this with me when I go on my honeymoon in October.

    I'm thinking of upgrading from the S8+ (Verizon). Anyone know If I have to pay off 50% of my existing phone before pre-ordering? I have about $150 left to reach 50%.

    Or is all that done when I pick up the Note and turn in my S8? I've never upgraded early before.
