    I'm looking forward to the possibility of it arriving on Verizon sometime within the next couple of months!

    Any guess as to how long it will be exclusive to AT&T?

    It has arrived!

    Durable, flat screen goodness; oh, how I've missed you!!

    My guess on exclusivity to AT&T would be 60 days; available on other carriers by the holiday season.

    If I had to guess, I'd say a couple months.

    DAMNED! After watching that video... I'm going to have a really hard time waiting for the Galaxy Note 8. Crap... I've been waiting patiently since I turned in my "Replacement" Note 7 and picked up the S7 Active as a "Stand-in", but I've actually grown to like the BEAST! I can't even tell you how many times I've dropped it without a single scratch, chip, dent... and that 4000mAh battery life?

    Do I really need Dual Cameras, an S-Pen and a phone that's WAY too tall, skinny and with only 3300mAh for >$1000.00 when I can have the S8 Active for around $850 (if what they're saying is correct)?

    My thoughts exactly jimd! After watching the S8 Active intro video, I think it confirms that the phone will have a decent screen wow factor (flat edges!) and tremendous battery. The tough mil-spec rated exterior only adds to it's desirability. :-)

    What I find interesting is that the S8 Active specs on the Samsung website differ from those on the AT&T website. The AT&T website has the screen resolution at 2560 x 1440 and does not call the screen an Infinity Display.

    The Samsung product website (linked below) does call the display an "Infinity Screen" and lists the resolution of the AT&T S8 Active as 2960 x 1440 (577 PPI.)

    Has anyone contacted AT&T via chat yet to ask about the discrepancy?

    That's just the kind of crap that ALWAYS happens to me - that's why I started just walking into my local AT&T Store (of course it's nice to have one 15 minutes from home too) and holding it in my hand there before laying out the cash! Makes me feel a whole lot more secure... :-)

    VZW never gets them Unlocked won't have access to the best VZW features.

    "Early leaks of the Galaxy S8 Active revealed that it won't have AT&T branding, and there's a good reason for that. The carrier has exclusive access to the device "for a limited time," but the phone will be available to non-AT&T customers at a later date. There's also the possibility that Samsung will sell it unlocked directly."

    There you go!

    How do you know? It says "the phone will be available to non-AT&T customers at a later date." too! I would think that to mean other Carriers!

    None of the others ever got to VZW. I making an assumption based on the past. I'm also a pessimist.

    What are the best VZW features and why would those features not work on an unlocked phone? Thanks.

    If it doesn't make it to Verizon this might be the phone that gets me to leave Big Red.

    Often some of the lte bands are not available. Sometimes you don't get 3G only LTE or 1G. Special calling features like wifi calling or advanced calling may not be available. Often updates must be manually installed with Odin. It varies but if you read any of the threads about unlocked phones being connected to VZW network you'll see the complaints. It is hard to predict the problems but it seems like there are always problems. Some will deny any issues. Someone else says wait this doesn't work or that doesn't work then first person says I don't care about that feature. That doesn't mean there is no problem. Now if vzw SELLS the phone then we're all set and it does sound nice.

    That's why two years ago, I switched to AT&T after twenty-three years with Verizon for what I could only describe as their total arrogance! They do what THEY want and really don't care what YOU or I want... I had finally had it! Buh-bye! Hello AT&T! No looking back - totally happy since.

    I'm happy with AT&T as well but like Verizon if you don't buy a carrier device you won't get the Advanced features they offer. I have a Google Pixel and Blackberry KEYone and AT&T does not support those devices for WiFi Calling, Direct Video Calling, Advanced Messaging, VoLTE (HD Voice), etc. It's a bummer...
