    Decided to pull the trigger on the Arctic Silver S8 T-Mobile on Samsung.com.

    S8 + Gear VR/controller + AKG Y50BT headphones + 256 gb microsd + 1 month free premium care for $749.99 plus tax.

    Now I'll just get out of my JOD on the V20.
    Looks like you got the $100 extra off on the Silver one. I got the exact same but in Orchid Grey and it was $100 more than yours.

    Yeah the silver has a lower price for T-Mobile only. Not sure why but I'll take it. Better than giving T-Mobile $100 in profit.

    I'm going to order the Tmobile S8 Plus via samsung.com after I work out. It will be at least 20 dollars cheaper than Tmobile due to the assist fee they now charge in store and ordering over the phone. Also sounds like we might get the phones a bit earlier this time too.
    You said you were done with pre-ordering phones after the Note7 debacle. Did I miss something?
    I knew you would crack.

    Only for the S8 though, the Plus version is the same price

    I guess they took it down or it was a mistake. We will see if they honor it if it was a mistake.

    Arctic Silver on Verizon. First time since the s3 that I've actually pre-ordered a phone. Hoping it comes early!

    I'm not settling for a smaller phone because T-mobile is screwing this up.



    I'm waiting it out a little to see if their stance changes. There's no queue as to when you order and when you receive, so no harm in waiting a few days or even a week or two.
    I'm guessing the backlash won't be as bad because the reps are quick to point out lower monthly payment and they also offer up the S8 with no down payment. Those weren't options with the Note 7.

    But I'm hoping people bring it up enough that they change course again. I've done my fair share of complaining that's for sure.

    Pre-ordered an Orchid Gray S8+ late last night from Verizon. Was going to go with BestBuy because they had the phone for $29.83 x 24 months v. Verizon @ $35 x 24 months, but I got a $15/month credit trading in my phone with Verizon.

    Frustrating experience with T-Mobile. Call to pre-order and tell the gal I'm on JOD and want the S8+ midnight black. She gets the order in and tells me I should be receiving my EIP documents shortly and to sign them. I say to her "Ok, that's it?" She says "Yes.". I ask about a $130 deposit? She tells me there is no deposit for JOD. I ask her again, "Is this for the S8+?" and she says "Yes.". I told her I was fairly certain there was a deposit for the phone. So she puts me on hold and comes back 2 minutes later and says there is no deposit and I once again asked, "This is for the S8+, right?" and again got a "Yes.".

    Just got me email to sign the documents and sure enough it wasn't for the S8+. So I call back to get the order changed and they tell me it needs to be cancelled and a new order place but their "tool" for cancelling orders was broken and to call back later. Ugh!

    I tried to place my order this morning and after 20 minutes on the phone, they said their system went down and they would call me later today to complete the order - T-Mobile

    I went out on a limb and ordered the Orchid Grey. 99% of it will be covered up anyway.

    I paid the $130 but I have a S7 Edge on that line so I don't know how they did that but I figured I was going to have to add a line to get it but I can't wait on the Note 8 not knowing for sure if that will even happen but I'll just have to try and sell the Edge. I just love the bigger screens so I may should have waited on the Note!
    I also wonder if you preorder early enough how soon we may receive them. I remember last year I preordered the LG V20 when the Note 7 died and I got it 2 weeks before launch day!

    Doesn't really seem to be 100 dollars off because they make you pay for the tax up front which was like 70 dollars for me. Verizon was like 35 a month and best buy was 29 but if you factor in the tax it's more like 32 or so. Plus verizon has you pay tax over the 24month period which is a lot better than paying up front because there is no interest. That's just my take on it. I could be wrong but didn't see a reason to get it through best buy over Verizon.

    Also, are we able to choose the headphones package or the vr once we get the phones? Verizon didn't seem to offer the 99$ headphone package

    The $99 package will be directly from Samsung.

    that's what I'm going to do, it is painful, but I'm holding out hoping it goes to $0 down

    Thanks! So is the vr through Verizon? And are we able to get both? Vr for free I guess and the other one for 99? Also can we purchase the 99$ package now or need the imei?

    The VR will be submitted thru Samsung once you get the device. You will have to provide IMEI and proof of purchase. I think you could add the $99 package at that time as well.

    I ordered directly from Samsung so I don't think those orders have to submit anything. I'm already submitted by placing my order straight from them.

    You will need IMEI and WIFI MAC (address) to submit - Redemption window opens 4/10 - 5/14.
