    So, I didn't really see a discussion thread for the Verizon users that pre-ordered the S8+. Since they seem to be the last in a lot of things, I figured I would officially make this thread so that we can all suffer together while other carries are showing progress

    S7 edge. They offered 480, which is more than I can get on swappa.

    Just an FYI, Verizon appears to have disabled/hid Samsung cloud which is good for backing up and restoring device like iCloud. This may not be a concern for most but just wanted to let people know. If going. H the Note 7 the other carriers will leave it enabled. There was a workaround on the Note to make it available. Will just have to see if it works.

    I doubt it. You can find the cloud on the S7edge using the same Note 7 method. But, when you create the shortcut, it just pops up and goes away. It appears that Big Red reads these forums as well and has gone out of the way to block the native cloud.

    I'm tempted to pre-order the S8 Plus on Verizon but something is unclear to me... If I want to keep my V20 which I got at the end of December, and continue paying that off monthly, then can I add the monthly charge for the S8 plus to that and pay off both phones monthly at the same time on the same line? If anyone knows the answer it would be greatly appreciated if you could let me know... I asked a Verizon rep in chat yesterday and he said I could do it but I'm not sure he understood completely what I was saying... Does any1 here pay off two phones monthly on the same line at the same time? Thanks.

    Yeah in the short time I had the Note it actually worked. For the S7 devices it was only officially released for T-Mobile ones so I kinda understand why it wouldn't work for other carriers. For the Note 7 it was released for all of them. But you're probably right in that they've set a way to permanently disable. I guess we will see. But one of the frustrations with Verizon.

    Verizon will only allow one device payment per line. If you put the S8 on another line it would be allowed but they won't lease you two phones on one line.

    You can have as many device payment agreements as the number of active lines you have, as long as you don't exceed your program spending limit.* There are several options to add additional lines of service online on the Devices page in My Verizon.

    Oh.... That's not good news... I didn't want to have to pay off my V20 all at once and I don't want to trade it in either as the amount of credit they give you for a trade in is usually not even close to what a phone is worth... I'll probably just keep my V20 and upgrade to something else next year once I've paid off more of the V20. Thanks for the info Almeuit.

    I changed my Verizon plan a couple days ago, now find I cannot upgrade my primary phone and pre-order the S8+ for some totally screwy reason.

    Would you mind sharing how you got $480? I have 363 left on my payment and that is the most I can see. If I were to trade my S7e in they show less than $300.

    Does this count an iPad on device payment that has a different phone number but on the same account?

    Because if you trade in the s7e, your monthly payments will be 15 a month, that's of course if you
    edge is paid off in full. Paying 15 a month for 2 years equals a 480 dollar savings on the phone.

    I just saw on reddit that there is a rumor that they could be shipping out as early as the 9th, but I don't believe that. Last year, Verizon said the S7 Edge would ship by 3/11. I received it on the 8th, three days early. I'm hoping by the end of next week, we will start to see charges and shipping notices.

    I was waiting for a Verizon pre ordered discussion lol.

    I pre ordered the black s8+ 3 minutes after pre orders opened. I just read an article saying how Samsung is struggling with demand of the pre orders so far. I don't know if that's a sales tactic, so take that for what it's worth. So if true, I doubt we are gonna see these phones any earlier than a day or two before release date.

    480 is their current promotional offer, but I think you have to be on unlimited data plan and your payment plan has to be paid off. Here are the terms and conditions of the offer on the 8+ promo:

    Here's how it works:
    Buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ and you can take advantage of the following promos:
    Get Galaxy S8 for as low as $15/mo with trade in.
    Switch to unlimited. If you’re already on unlimited, continue to next step.
    Trade in. You can also trade in your device after you check out, or at a later time.

    iPhone 7 Plus
    Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
    Google Pixel XL
    Moto Z Force
    Samsung Galaxy S8+ for $15/mo
    (up to $480 in savings)

    Up to $840 device payment purchase required. Up to $480 trade-in/promo credit applied over 24 months; credit starts within 1-2 cycles and promo credit ends when balance is paid or line terminated/transferred or changed to an ineligible plan. 0% APR. Fully paid off eligible trade-in must be in good working and cosmetic condition.

    I jumped on vzw.com at 11:55PM on 3/29 and guess what? The sale was live. I snagged 2 S8+ in Orchid Grey for myself and my bf. We can't wait.
