    I'm not daft, and I'm also not greedy like you. If I didn't want to actually use the watch, I probably wouldn't have taken advantage of the offer. It is optional after all. That way someone else who really wants it can get it. And I certainly wouldn't try to make them pay for one.
    Greed:
    1. excessively or inordinately desirous of wealth, profit, etc.; avaricious:

    Not sure how me accepting a free promo that Samsung was giving to anyone who preordered the phone from Verizon makes me greedy...if that's the case, they're your greedy too. I just have a different use for my free gift than you do.

    And as I said before, I'm not the reason you don't have your watch, Samsung/Prizelogic is. Stop taking your frustration out on someone who was legitimately entitled to a free gift with purchase. It's not like I have 20 of them lying around, I have my 1 and that's it.

    I wonder what would have happened if verizon/samsung offered a second choice to the S2 - a cash rebate, maybe something like $200. So people who didn't need the watch and just wanted cash would be happy, and those who wanted the watch would more likely get the watch. Pick some price that balances the headache of waiting for the watch to arrive and putting it on ebay. Unless the whole point of the watch giveaway was they were hoping people would subscribe to the monthly data fee to recover their cost.

    I've been on the phone with Big Red and Prize Logic for days now. They won't be moved.

    My guess is that it's a mix between that and the app sales - since the S2 doesn't run Android Wear, Samsung really needs a huge buy in from people to really get app developers to make both Android Wear and Tizen versions of their watch apps for it to take off.

    You were complaining earlier about the ebay price of the watch dropping. That sounds "excessively desirous of wealth" to me. And I'm not greedy for keeping a gift from a promo. And I also didn't have to preorder the phone to get it. I ordered on 3/17 and got the phone the next day, then submitted the claim.

    You're complaining that you haven't gotten your watch, but you purchased your phone the day before the promo ended? I just got my watch, and I preordered my phone in February.

    As for the secondary market, I'm merely pointing out that people are underpricing a good respective to it's true market value, and devaluing the market for everyone else. Amazon sells the non 3G version for $250 - this watch should easily fetch $200 based on selling conditions. Me wanting to get a true market value for the watch isn't greed, it's sensible - if anything, the initial sellers were selfish in trying to get rid of their watches as fast as possible. If I wanted $400 for the watch, that's called greed. The whole situations is akin to a situation like if you lived in a condo community. Your unit is worth $200k, but your neighbor sells his unit for $150k just to get out asap. He's now effectively devalued the whole community for his own selfishness.

    Arguing with him is futile. He clearly doesn't get it and is just mad that he hasn't gotten his yet. I personally originally wanted a gear s2 but after looking at what it did vs what android wear could do I decided to go with an android wear watch. So I bought a LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition LTE and I'm selling my gear S2s to cover the cost. I wanted the promo, just not what they offered. I believe that's reasonable.

    Why would you have to go to the store to activate? Can't call or do online?

    Good. Resellers are scum anyway. Hopefully any people that have multiple watches on order for that purpose will now cancel them so others who just want their watches will get them faster.
    You are being ridiculous and childish. Your free toy isn't here yet (still inside the 6-8 week window you were told to expect) so you're choosing to lash out at a stranger on the Internet who has nothing to do with it.

    I am excited to get my watch too, but I'm getting a little worn out on all the posters making crazy remarks about how terrible this ordeal is. If you bought the phone for no reason other than the free watch then you made a stupid choice.

    I received an email that the Gear watch had shipped with the tracking number yesterday. When I got home from work there was a package at my door. Lo and behold the Gear watch had arrived....yesterday! Glad its here. For those still waiting just hang in there. Apparently, Samsung is slow to let you know they have sent the item so it will just show up without prior notice....

    When I tried to activate it online and over the phone I had some troubles with it, I also needed to go to the Verizon store because I had to ask about the protection plan for my new S7 edge, that had dropped and cracked the screen, only had it a little over a week, first phone that I have ever done that too. I needed to get a better case. The one I have sucks!

    Haha I've noticed that a few weekends ago. It sucks cause I work every other weekend and it's slow on weekends so I wish this was more active. Lol. It's usually most active right after PL does a status change. Lol
