    I went to Best Buy and checked the demo unit out. I always forget how much better the Note phones feel in the hand than the S series phones...idk what it is but they just do. Anyway, its a wonderful device. I didn't spend much time with it as I don't want to spoil myself but I had to see it in person...and then I went home with the Tab S4 (and I don't hate it either and all the reviewers are being way too hard on it if you ask me.)

    Anyway...cant wait for this phone.

    Mine shipped an hour ago.......
    Mine has been stuck at the Fed ex terminal for 5 hours now. I called them to see what the problem was and they said there's a hold on it.

    I wonder if I go there, I would be able to pick it up.

    Just shared how screwy my order is in a chat, so bring lazy & copying/pasting most of it .

    I hadn't planned on getting the N9, wasn't enough of an upgrade for that much money, so was going to skip this one (1st time since the N3). BUT one of my sons broke his phone (S7Edge) & has been using my old N4. He had just one more month to pay on his pmt agreement. When I looked at the S9 for him I saw the BOGO offer (buy 1 get 2nd free (on a new line)). My Mom has my old N5, so not bound by a plan. The "plan", if I don't mess it up, is:

    1. Upgraded son's line to 512 GB N9 (blue)
    2. Added new line to get "free" 128 GB N9 (blue)

    When phones arrive:

    3. Activate 512 GB N9 on my line
    4. Activate 128 GB N9 on son's line
    5. Activate Mom's N5 on new #
    6. Cancel Mom's prev #

    Pretty sure VZW will have some kind of aneurysm over this!

    You can pretty much swap your sim's around however you want. I do it all the time. As long as you are paying the bill each month Verizon (or any other carrier) really don't care which line is using which phone.

    Does anyone know if I did the Verizon B1G1F deal, if I could sell one of the phones as long as I paid the $20/month line access fee for 24 months? I'm looking to sell one of the phones to help offset the cost of my phone, but wasn't sure if both phones would be linked to my account and non-transferable to another account.

    I believe technically you can, but it's at the buyers risk, sort of. If you stop paying for that phone, sometimes the carrier will turn that phone off, it has happened, the buyer got the phone turned back on but it was a pain in the arse for them.

    I am pretty sure you can't sell it on sites like swappa if the phone is not paid off, think they even check.

    Yeah cause I'm sure Verizon won't let someone else turn it on in their name after buying cause the bogo says that in order to get it free they have to keep the paying on the one they paid for and new line open for 24 months. If I understood that correctly. I'm sure if they shut line off and sold it to someone else then Verizon would charge for the phone to the original owner that sold it and plus if Verizon won't turn it on cause the original owner still owes on it then it wouldn't be fair to the person that bought it cause they have a paperweight til it is paid for. Or am I wrong?

    You actually CAN do this (and this ONLY applies to Verizon phones) because Verizon phones are unlocked by default (and I'm not sure what the difference is between a Verizon version and the actual unlocked version anyway.) Swappa will not be able to tell that a Verizon phone has a financing agreement. Most buyers will be turned off to buying a phone that they know has a financing agreement - so with that said if you know for sure you are going to pay off that phone then I would not volunteer that information unless specifically asked, because the buyer will never know unless you abandon the line and stop paying.....even then I am not sure how aggressive they are in carrier blocking phones. In my experience selling carrier phones, Verizon phones tend to be the easiest besides an unlocked phone.

    Not exactly true. I sold an iPhone X I had on Verizon recently that wasn't and still isn't fully paid off (I just knew I wouldn't go back to it) yet. No issues at all, and I sold it on Swappa too. The iphone is still attached to the line it was on, so...

    So this person that bought it is able to use it when it not even paid off? I wouldn't sell a phone to someone that wasn't paid off. To each their own tho. I guess things might have changed cause Verizon wasn't always like that.

    Won't be long before your buyer will be looking for a refund. Verizon will not activate a device payment phone on someone else's account if it has not been paid off first.

    That is incorrect, and I don't want to get off subject by arguing about it. Anyway - it can be done and I don't think it makes you a crappy person if you do it. What makes you a crappy person is if you are intentionally trying to screw someone over, which I am not and am under the assumption the person that asked about this is not either.

    Hmm so I have like $425 left to pay off on my current Note 8, and then the VZ chat guy said I could trade it in for like 300 bucks credit.

    No way I'm jumping on the 9 like that. May need to email the Super Rep I dealt with last year and see what he can do. Or pay off the 8 (perfect condition) and sell privately to offset the 9 cost.
