    I agreed to send in the iphone in order to do the early upgrade for the s7. But who is to say that nothing happened to that phone after I did the preorder? What if it fell into a toilet bowl and I had to activate my iphone 4, thats what I want to trade in. My question is it too late to activate that now and use that as my trade in?
    Wait .. so you have the iPhone 6 on a payment plan and isn't paid off? So you were going to trade it in to get credits (or do an early upgrade)? And what do you mean "if something happened" to it after you pre-ordered? I am kind of lost I guess on what you're asking.

    It sounds like he may be on a two year plan. With the early upgrade I've noticed you have to send Big Red a phone as sacrifice for your "early upgrade" to a DPP.

    Sounds like most everyone had movement yesterday, but not much today for those that didn't get "shipped" yesterday.

    Yeah. But I'm pretty sure he has to send whatever phone was active on the account at the time of purchase. I almost early upgraded when the Note 5 came out and they wanted my Note Edge as tribute for their Hunger Games at the time of purchase.

    It'll be an excellent day with the info *wink wink*

    What do you mean about the service plan? The CSR said I would get the $25 service plan discount since I am going to a DPP. The CSR said they have a promotion where although I am still under contract, I can upgrade early to a new phone if I do the device payment plan and I need to turn in my phone. I agreed to send in the iphone in order to do the early upgrade for the s7. But who is to say that nothing happened to that phone after I did the preorder? What if it fell into a toilet bowl and I had to activate my iphone 4, thats what I want to trade in. My question is it too late to activate that now and use that as my trade in?
    Ah it's all so clear to me now. You must send the iPhone 6 back in working condition since that is what you agreed to do. Should something happen to the iPhone that renders it useless, you are on the line for it and must pay whatever amount it is that you agreed to pay should the phone not be functioning when returned.

    Yes you are lost haha let me explain. @MizWylie is correct. I have an iphone 6 on a two year contract. As a promo they are letting me upgrade early but in order to upgrade early I must commit to a device payment plan and give them my iphone 6 (the phone that is currently active on my line) What I want to do is activate an iphone 4 today and once I get the new s7 I will send in the iphone 4 as my trade in.

    So .. keep the 6 that you used to do the 2 year contract and send in an old iPhone 4 instead?

    Have to send the iPhone 6. You could always cancel, put the iPhone 4 on and reorder. Either way you win because I eat apples for breakfast.

    I just got in my Amazon order of 2 cases and screen protector. I am pleasantly pleased to find that the outer dimensions of an S7 TPU case is less than my S4 in a thick waterproof case. Having a non-huge phone was one of my primary considerations for getting the S7 over others.
    Now that I am holding a case in my hand... I just need the slabs of glass and densely packed circuit boards to go in it!

    Pre-ordered from Best Buy (3/4) and Verizon (3/5) so I can get both the Gear S2 and VR headset. I'll either keep the 2nd phone or sell it on Swappa or something. No movement or info from Verizon, everything still says processing with the 1800's ship date.

    However, Best Buy emailed me and said my order will be ready for pickup on 3/7, so I'm very excited to get it today.

    Verizon doesn't just go off the phone that's currently activate but the IMEI number of whatever device you signed the contract with.

    correct, but from what I am hearing it is too late to do that because the iphone 4 would of had to be activated on the account prior to doing the preorder.

    So you are saying even if I had the iphone 4 active before the preorder they would ask for the iphone 6 back because that was my phone during the 2 year contract? honestly speaking what if something happened to that phone and I had to activate my 4 as a backup

    It wouldn't have worked anyway. First I would never recommend trying to pull a fast one on a carrier or insurance company as that walks the line of fraud.

    The reason it wouldn't have worked is because they have your IMEI / Serial number for the iPhone 6 you bought from them in their system. This way it prevents people from pulling things like this off. An example is my gf broke her iPhone 6 and we went into T-Mobile and did an insurance claim. Before even moving forward with it they confirmed it was actually the phone that was on the plan by the IMEI / Serial number of the phone. They do that so someone doesn't bring in a friends broken iPhone and get it replaced for them for just a deductible.

    Same thing with your order. If they have you in a contract for 2 years and are allowing you to "upgrade" via giving them the old phone and doing so -- they know exactly what phone it should be. I am sure the rep may have said "The one active on the line" and by that they mean the one with the contract .. Reps just usually aren't clear in that sense. They didn't mean the one currently active on it.

    You signed a 2 year contract for the iPhone 6 so yes, that's the phone you're legally obligated to send back. If your 6 were to somehow break, you'll have to pay the amount specified in your agreement when you did the upgrade. I've seen it around $3-400 in the event you send in a broken phone or fail to send in the phone at all.

    Because you have the Gear VR in hand whereas the Verizon phone you agreed to a device payment plan. It's just creating a potential reason for your pre-order gift to be void since you'll have to pay off the device before you can sell the phone. I'm sure you won't have any issues but you're still creating a potential problem. Just remember we submit a form to Samsung to receive our gift, it's not shipped with the phone itself.

    Yeah I hear ya, when they started doing the edge program years ago I did pull a fast one on them and had activated an old phone, called them to do the early edge and sent that phone back so it did work. Maybe now they are just more aware of it. I guess I will trade in the iphone 6! I mean I am getting a free watch and a WAY better phone! right? lol

    I'll admit I pulled a stunt like that awhile ago and got away with it. Now the agreements clearly show the IMEI of the device you have to send back and they're now absolute fastidious about verifying everything with the phone. I managed to accidentally send in a wrong device for an account credit, I had 2 white S4s in the same drawer, and they contacted me about why the IMEI was different.

    Excellent point, which is why I bought the phone outright from BB with their 0% interest CC. They give you the VR headset and SD card in store. No need to go through samsung promotions other than when I get the VZW version for the gear S2. I'll probably sell the BB version anyway to pay off the card.

    P.S. So you've threatened the US with nuke attacks again, huh?
