    I'm holding out for a color other than Black or White. Patience is a virtue.
    I'm considering it too, my old clunker still works so I really don't NEED a new phone, I've never owned anything but a black phone and that platinum sure does look good. Like ICBYH said, it could give some time to work out the kinks and also see what the LG has up their sleeve.

    Totally agree. I am going to lurk in the forums and watch the carnage unfold. Well that is a little dramatic but you get the gist.

    My S5 is running smooth as butter. When the color option becomes available that I want, then I might jump in the pool.

    Don't take this the wrong way. It is exciting to follow all things S6. It's always a feeling of being high on anticipation... and I don't want to **** on anyone's parade. But for me, I want what I want, and I'm willing to exercise patience to get it.

    So we had an internal announcement regarding competition offers and I can not use the exact post...but they are claiming to be "withholding a special offer and promotions on the Galaxy s6 and Samsung devices, currently" without using the exact words. So from what we can gather they are trying to work out a promotion and it will PROBABLY be for a discount if you get an S5 or Tablet, it might not even affect the S6 directly but something is coming. Soon as I know more I will pass it on but it as of right now will be on the front page on April 1st as a pre-order Samsung special. Sorry to be so cryptic but they message was honestly very vague and I do not want to cross any lines

    Color choices...yeah I agree but honestly Samsung has nearly ALWAYS brought out more colors down the road..just like other carriers. We ASSUMED we would get all colors at launch based on a World Wide announcement and honestly that was our bad. I want to see all color choices but either way I could live with just white / black if that is my choices. Typically we have not seen other colors for nearly 3-6 months after launch so those who say they will wait....I hope your current phone makes it to July 4 or later and you do not mind the possible long delay. End of the day this is a business choice they want carriers to pay for exclusive rights and I am sure right now they are making offers lol. It creates free marketing and a ton of HYPE for an already amazing phone...so working as intended for Samsung!

    Verizon device did have 24.5 GB free after gmail was setup on the device...for anyone curious about overall storage.

    Anyone waiting on colors this is directly from Samsung corporate trainer for Verizon - "Additional color choices will come in the form of Green GS6 Edge and Blue GS6 around August for Verizon."

    Well, I ordered a black S6 edge today, but will be paying full price. I can just give it to my wife when the green one comes out and use my upgrade and the Best Buy workaround to get it. Thanks for the info!

    Nothing official sorry if I honestly knew I would tell you. It sounds very POSSIBLE but as of right now internal Verizon SKU only show the black / white models. That can change in the click of a mouse though

    Online will have limited stock and will just start to be put on back order shipping dates. So if you are planning on doing online be there right at launch to ensure your shipping date.

    In store will be depend on your location. Example being, my store will pre-order anything available, but I will not carry the 128 model unless there is a demand. As most people are OK waiting 2 days to get that capacity in store as that is same time frame it takes to order online unless you make the next day cut off. General idea is we do not want a ton of $1000 devices in our inventory lol.

    inders99,

    Sorry to say but the answer in no. If you are on a data share plan (i.e. Unlimited talk/text and X GB of data)
    If you are not on an Edge plan the "line fee" is $40.
    This sucks because AT&T does not do this. They give you the $15 "line fee" if you pay off device, BYOD, or do a Next plan and have 10+ GB.

    Verizon "line fee" goes like this:

    Contract: $40 line fee ( pay subsidized price, and $40 "upgrade" fee)
    EDGE: 8GB or less: Line fee is $25 ( a $15 price cut )
    Edge: 10GB or Higher: $15 Line fee ( Price cut of $25)
    BYOD (bring your own device) Line fee: $40 ( you lose the discount )

    The only way to make a line fee cheaper is to BYOD - Dumb phone - and the line fee is $20.

    Hope this helps.
    Not quite accurate on last count - Month-to-Month with BYOD Line Fee: $40 ($15 discount for 8GB or less data plan or $25 discount for 10GB or higher data plan - must be added as a "Feature" to existing account)

    Can you confirm that if I order online it will be delivered on April 10th? Also, what about ordering multiple phones? I'm on a family share plan with 6 people and we all plan on getting the S6 in some form. Can I order all 6 for delivery? Can I have 3 delivered at one address and another 3 at a different address? At Best Buy I could order all of them separately, but they would all have to be in separate names and the person would have to show ID to pick them up in store. I just want all of them delivered to avoid lines and to make it easy for the people on the plan that don't get as excited about these things like I do.

    Also, regarding plan changes, do you do that at the time of preorder or upon activation? Currently have a 2 year contract expiring and want everyone to switch to the edge plan to save $25/line.

    The salesperson at Best Buy just refused to pre-order for me because I am paying full retail without signing a contract. Can they do that?

    Any other Best Buy stores in your area that you can try? If not, maybe call the store and talk to a manager.

    I will be getting the Black 128GB off contract with VzW so this interests me also! I would prefer to purchase the phone from Best Buy but from looking at their off contract prices they are significantly higher than VzW direct.
    Best buy will price match!

    I'm pretty sure they can't because that's how I pre-ordered mine. They even have instructions on how to do it so you should talk to a manager about it.

    Yep, I plan on getting them to price match when I pick mine up.

    Are you asking if they will have a limited stock at launch? Obviously we have a ton of devices but just like the iPhone as soon as they hit a certain number they start to move the shipping dates back. Hence why this is a first come first serve system and why they are doing a pre-order to gauge sales and inventory flow.

    Illusive, with verizon now saying gold is coming for launch, any update on BB allowing to preorder them? prefer to get it there for the free wireless charger. Still not showing online, but wasn't sure if I can still pop into a store tomorrow and put down a deposit. When I went on Friday, they said there wasn't a SKU for it golds on VZW
