    Was it new in the box like it says? Also, is it the correct model? Not the international variant or anything like that?

    Yes it sure was.. factory sealed and unopened. Had 91% battery out of the box. Model is SM-N960U1. Smart switched everything from the S6 Edge.. working perfectly. Came with Android 10 already installed. Aug 2021 security patch downloaded and updated. Has UI 2.5. Very slick device, first time using a Note. It's not going to replace my main Galaxy S10 but it is cool...

    I thought the unlocked Note 9 was SM-N960U?

    No, U1 models are the unlocked ones. U models are the carrier versions. But firmware is 100% interchangeable between the two

    Oh so I am guessing the U1 version is like an unlocked model for CDMA carriers? Sim card unlocked would be GSM?

    My U1 Note 9 has a SIM/SD card slot. It is advertised as unlocked for any carrier.

    Weird... I have tried out the version that Samsung sells refurbished and I believe it is the U variant which is also factory unlocked. I wonder what the difference is? I had no issues popping my T-Mobile sim card in.

    I would love to find a cheap 8/512gb Note 9 as a backup device.

    U1 version is sim unlocked already with no carrier bloat and some carrier features could be missing and supports both CDMA and GSM.

    U is carrier version supports both CDMA and GSM, it will have carrier bloat ,start up logo and can be sim unlocked and have all carrier features.

    Ah, I see.

    The versions I have had in the past had no carrier bloatware which is quite nice. I don't need T-Mobile's software.

    Yeah I've bought the unlocked version for last few years , I use to buy carrier versions to flash the unlocked version so I purchase unlocked now.
