    Anyone have experience with getting a phone from Best Buy and Verizon in the past? Would like to have the phone as soon as possible but not sure whether to pre-order from Verizon or pick up in a store.

    They'll probably be announced towards the end of the year once the sales start falling off. It's happened with previous S devices. Just look how long the blue s5 took to come out.
    A lot speculated that the Note 4 would see this treatment as well, but the gold and pink versions never saw the light of day. Samsung has been terrible at providing all options upon launch. Don't bet on seeing more than two colors.

    I spoke with our Samsung rep yesterday about information on the S6 and Edge. She confirmed Verizon will carry 2 colors at launch, all storage options will be available as well.

    Some people know me here and I'm reputable since I work for the company. Just look at my previous posts in the past. You can chose to believe me or not, it doesn't matter to me.

    any word on the pricing? (rumor or otherwise)

    How much for the 128 gb S6 regular in white or gold with 2-year contract?
    Will it be more or less than the 128g gb iPhone 6 in white with 2-year contract?

    Thank you.

    I plan on switching my family share everything plan to the Edge plan. Even if we all get the 32gb Edge model, we are out on $200 for the device over the course of 2 years given the price difference of the contract. So you pay less up front, less overall, and you're not really in a contract. Also you can upgrade after 16 months if you trade in the device.
    You do not have to be on a Edge plan to get a line discount. If your out of contract you get it.

    That sucks. They should come out with all colors and all storage options at launch. It's ridiculous to announce them and get peoples' hopes up and then not have them available at the same time.
    Agreed, this is one of Samsung's many faults that go along with their achievements as well. They are horrible at providing all options available upon launch....a lot of confusion and different launch strategies, in different markets.

    That's correct, but if I'm getting the S6, then it costs less to go onto the Edge plan than it does to pay the subsidized price and sign a 2 year contract.

    I'm stuck with the Red Devil as AT&T coverage is nill to none where I'm at.
    What is the off contract price for the 128GB model?
    I know the feeling - I was that way when I lived near Savannah.

    I am definitely going to try this before going to VzW
    Sometimes Best Buy will play ball with the price matching and sometimes they won't but all they can say is no.

    I just read a post over at Droid life, they are saying that Verizon WON'T have the S6/S6E up for pre order until April 1st.

    Can anyone in the know, confirm that this is true.
    Also, with the later date, does that mean that they'll miss the April 10th release? Thanks!

    April 1st was the date Verizon stated pre-orders would open. While they haven't officially said when the release is, I'd say it's April 10th - in line with others.

    must give respect where it is due: those South Koreans
    sure do have balls.... charging that kind of prices... and I
    thought only we US Americans(i.e. Apple, Inc) have the
    balls to charge ridiculous prices for iPhones.

    REALLY disappointed verizon isn't carrying this in platinum gold. I was going to switch from an iPhone 6 to S6 edge but really not a fan of black and while white looks ok, $400 for a phone in a color I don't love is a bit much.

    I'm actually considering a switch to AT&T (my wife could take my line over and cancel her out of contract line). Any benefits to AT&T over Verizon these days -- plans? service?

    Verizon pretty much always has the lowest off contract price on any phone.

    Not a bad idea. Might be some hardware kinks that they could fix up as well with the later batches.

    Samsung was tight lipped today. Our call with them was not even a live model. It was a GLOBAL pre-production model so I can not comment on the branding logos others were asking. They did not even take questions or talk about why it was not available on launch in other colors and no mention of pre-order starting any time other then the 1st of April. Sorry right now they either are going to launch as slated or they have something up their sleeve.

    Is it safe to assume that there won't be hundreds of people lining up outside
    of Verizon or AT&T stores waiting to buy the new S6?
