    Is it mostly women that are loving the silver edge or are there a few men that also love the silver edge?

    The "catch" is that you're stuck on a 2-year contract with a higher monthly payment than if you were off contract. And yes, lots of people have done it because that's how virtually every US carrier worked up until the last couple of years when they started moving away from contracts.

    On Verizon, if you're on contract, you pay $20 more per month per line than if you're off contract ($40/mo vs. $20/mo). It doesn't matter whether you buy through Best Buy or Verizon...the plans are the same. Go to Bestbuy.com or Verizonwireless.com right now and look at the difference in plan prices whether you sign a contract or buy a phone outright - it's right there and clear as day that the monthly cost for contract phones is higher.

    On Verizon through Best Buy, the S7 Edge is $299 on a 2-year contract. $20 more per month on contract over 24 months = $480. $299 + $480 = $779 (surprise! the exact cost of the S7 Edge). I never called anyone incompetent, but again, you're paying the same price for the phone as everyone else and you're monthly bill is higher whether you want believe it or not.
    If you are cool paying 800 bucks for the edge - then good for you. If you are cool paying 400 bucks (299+Taxes+upgrade fee) then good for you. I personally don't think the edge is the "next big thing' or for that matter worth more than 400 of my dollars. My line fee btw is still 9.99 - not 20, not 40 and am still showing my unlimited plan even though I was advised it would be removed with the 2 year $299 option.

    Joe,
    I have a question about the deal for getting $100 by switching to verizon and getting an s7. Is it $100 per phone or 100 per account?

    If you still think you're only paying $400 for an $800 phone - then good for you.

    I'm a guy and I'm going with the silver edge. My guess is a good percentage of this forum are men, and it seems like a lot of people like the silver. I think it's a pretty gender neutral color.

    I am a man and have been getting black phones forever. I went to Best Buy and the black phone is a bright piano black, a bad fingerprint magnet. Since I like to go without a case I decided on the silver as I have never wanted gold in watches or a phone. I am, however, ordering a case to use when I think it might be needed more, like when I take my granddaughter to Disney later this month.

    But you're also most likely paying $30 for your monthly data per phone too for a total of $40 like I was plus the text and talk fee of $80 for 700 minutes. I thought I was getting the edge for $300 by renewing my 2 year contract too but then realized that I was just paying an additional $20 ($40,total) per month on my phone plan instead. Then I was informed that by just paying the full price off contract over 24 months and changing my plan, that I would now pay the $80 for talk, text and 12 gig data (XXL plan) and then just be charged $20 line access fee per phone. So my bill went down a lot with 4 people on my plan going from paying the $40 each per month ($9.99 line access plus $30 data plan) to jusr $20 each a month all off contract. I was paying $240 ($80 talk text + four phones @ $40 each for line access and data plan) before taxes and insurance and now paying $160 for $80 data, talk text shared and $20 line access. Plus $33 per month for the new phone for 24 months and gained unlimited talking minutes for everyone on plan rather than the old 700 minutes per month.

    I ordered at 8 am on launch day and it still does not show any ship date. Through this whole little glitch I have only seen "still processing " with no date. This is both on the full desktop website and the mobile site. Am I the only one?

    Ordered my black one 2 days ago on the 1st. Got a confirmation email saying delivery by the 11th. I called them yesterday the 2nd to double check the order. They said yes, order went through. Should ship on the 10th, and have in hand on the 11th. They also sent me a text for the link to register for the free accessory, either the VR or S2. Zip 67401

    My bill really didn't change. It probably has something to do with how my husband's phone was purchased through Verizon last year. He's still on the account, but we purchased it before Verizon got rid of their discounted upgrade at the end of your contract thing or whatever they called it.

    It is a little humorous that you're so concerned about our phone bills, though. Maybe it's time for a new hobby? There are some great shows on Netflix right now.

    If you go to your confirmation email from Verizon, after the first paragraph there's a link to check your order status. Follow the link, and voila, you will find that date we have all been peeing all over ourselves about for the last day or so. lol. Hopefully it says 3-11 for you too!

    This popped up when I went to read the terms. Different than the last time I went and signed up for a reminder on launch day.

    You want to see something interesting? Go to that promotions page and choose a different provider. The e-mail reminder signup page only shows a picture of the free VR. Now pick Verizon as the provider and select the "store" radio button. Again, only the free VR shows on the e-mail reminder page. Now go back, pick Verizon again, only this time select "VerizonWireless." The e-mail reminder page now displays the free VR and the free S2.

    You pre order the phone. When it ships V will send you a notice and there will be a redeem code on it. You enter this on a Samsung site to get the S2

    Yep. Fingers crossed. In all honesty, I could probably live without both and just pickup a Fit Bit as they have been regularly on sale at Best Buy since the fitness part is what I care about.
