    How's the quality of the Gear VR? And what kind of content is even available for it?
    Best thing about the free VR is the 'free' part. I tried mine once ....

    Thing is I really don't have any need for VR. I'd much rather have Watch gear. Someone said there was a choice but that may have been with the Samsung only offer, not going through BB.

    Samsung man installed everything for free at Best Buy for the wife & me. Apps were free.
    To use everything on the VR gear you need WiFi.

    I'm enjoying the VR. It's much better quality than Google Cardboard, which made me feel nauseous. I've never tried the more expensive VR units.

    The content is a mixed bag. I'm enjoying a lot of material. The Ocean Reef swimming experience is amazing. There's a kart racing game that is spectacular, too. There are a number of space games/experiences that are great. You can watch Netflix through it, too. The Van Gogh tribute lets you walk through a painting.

    I'm enjoying it and glad to have the VR, but there are still some limitations. I spend a lot of time waiting for content to download. Aside from Netflix, I tend to have difficulty streaming content so I need to download it. I haven't tried YouTube on it yet.

    There is a lot of content that doesn't require a gamepad. I've only seen a couple of games that required one.

    If you do want a gamepad, you can get a decent one for $30 from Amazon. The Moga Hero Power is very compact and works fine with Gear VR.

    While checking on availability for the phone I wanted, found unavailable either online or store. However, for those talking about paying upfront, the website lists the lower price at ~$790 but the phone is inactivated. So, how did you activate your phones?

    Just to follow-up, you purchased the phone up front with cash/credit. However, the BB website lists the lower price at ~$790 but only if the phone is inactivated. Was yours?

    That's correct. I purchased it unactivated. It was 779 plus tax for the Verizon model.

    Only curious. How did you activate it without a contract or is that just the way Verizon operates? I've been an AT&T customer for years.

    With Verizon, you just switch SIMS from phone to phone. No trouble.

    I pre-ordered online and put it on my BB credit card with 0% interest for 12 months. Got it unactivated and just switch my Sim card. Still got the VR bundle as well. I would definitely try getting it online and see if the bundle is still advertised

    This was what I just pulled up on the Best Buy app so hurry and try before they take it down.

    Thanks. Will definitely call store this morning to see if my AT&T model is still available.

    So, stuff got in my way of getting to the store but will call first before going on Monday. Will ask when I call but am still concerned that they are simply going to allow me to switch my SIM cards & pay a discounted price. My history with AT&T is that they don't discount prices on phones except in the days of required 2-year contracts.

    I got mine from best buy on Friday. I paid full price for mine and they gave me the vr headset and memory card. I got lucky and just walked in and they had one left. No pre order.

    Sounds good. Did you try getting the phone inactivated? One user on the thread says they got inactivated price for around $700.

    I wish. No mine was 759 plus tax. Not bad I traded my iPhone 6s plus in and got 508 for it. Then I used 140 in best buy rewards points so in the end out of pocket it wasn't much. But to buy it for 700 would have been better lol. Mine was unactivated. I just bought it full price then swapped my Sim card.
