    You only get the s2 if you order online. He doesn't have both choices.
    this is not correct

    according to the promo page either should be available for web or phone orders... only the store/other screen gives the gear vr choice only

    It seems pretty clear from the promo page that if you order online with a payment plan you can pick either and if you order in store you just get the VR.

    Really Joe? I get the watch option even though I ordered directly through a Verizon Wireless CSR and not online? I thought I was going to be limited to the headset thingy.
    Phone /Online qualify for both deals.

    Oh, man. You just got on the NSA's radar.
    Perhaps they can loan me some plutonium so I can go pick up my phone from 1858? If they don't, I'll sue Verizon because I've been a customer since '02 and deserve to get whatever I ask for, regardless of how preposterous the request.

    ETA: this was a reply to Joe the sleepless or anyone who has received an answer to this...

    Do you think that the "while supplies last" clause will come into play for preorders? Do you think we'll see an issue with S2 stock and not being able to redeem if, for example, we used standard shipping instead of overnight shipping or will be out of town for a couple of days when it arrives? *cough*

    Sleep is for the weak when you have kids that won't sleep in
    Well I have teens and if they had their way, they'd sleep all day.
    This is why teens are weak. I make my scientists work 24/7 so I can tell the world lies and shake my fist at capitalist pigs.

    Joe I was just told today when I went into a core store in my location (PA) that it was going to be the Bluetooth one after he checked his system. Is they any possible way we could get more clarification? It says the value is $300 which is the retail of the Bluetooth model.

    Oh man that sucks. Did you use a shipping address that differs from your billing? I've had Verizon do that a couple of times.

    Apparently what he said, is The watches are not coming out of Verizon's inventory. Samsung is just trying to offload stock. That is why they would be Bluetooth and why we have to go through samsungs website to receive the promo. But taking with a grain of salt as usual.

    Oh ok. I was thinking that VerizonWireless.com/phone was just some url they were mentioning, especially since the website said online only. My bad lol.

    PLEASE READ: All, after extensive research and MANY phone conversations with Verizon, this is the truth about the promo: yes, you have to order the phone via the Verizon website to have the choice of either the S2 or VR headset. You do this by adding a line without an upgrade, or simply upgrading if you have a line eligible, but it HAS to be done on the Verizon website to receive EITHER Samsung promo gift. If you order via phone, or in store, the ONLY option is to get the VR headset. To verify what I say is the truth, please go to samsungpromotions.com/verizonoffer. Then, select Verizon, and then you will see a drop down containing two options, 1) verizonwireless.com/phone, or 2) Verizon store/other. ONLY option 1 will allow you to choose either the Gear S2 or the VR headset. After selecting, you must include your MEID, wifi MAC address, AND ORDER LOCATION # which translates into where/how you purchased your phone. How do I know? I have an order location # which is on my preorder receipt and even though I placed my order via phone with a Verizon rep, I still contacted Verizon and gave them my order location # which Verizon confirmed translates into "phone order". Therefore, if I tried to submit for a S2 watch, weeks later Samsung would deny my claim as the phone wasn't purchased on the website. So, if you preordered via phone, you can cancel and reorder online. Of course, now the phones are back ordered if you order today, and chances are, the 300,000 free S2 or VR headsets will be gone. Oh, you can read the "terms and conditions" link on the samsungpromotions website, and it says promotion limited to 300,000 first come/first serve customers. Hope this helps, and sorry for all that placed order via phone...myself included.

    I could care less about the VR or the watch. Wish a third option in deducting $100 from the phone instead

    Should I trust your post or the website?

    A VZW Customer Service rep posted on the Verizon discussion board that... "At this time, the free S2 is only available when you order online or through our telesales department."
