    I got a Galaxy S4 in pristine condition except for the battery, but it's rooted and has a custom rom on it. Do you think Samsung would reject it for that?

    Blacklisted is when is reported as stolen or lost, most of the time, but it can be blacklisted for example when it was financed and never paid off.

    About the Trade In value, well, Best Buy most likely don't accept it because it's simply to old and have no value, but Samsung clearly states that any smartphone that still power on and keeps a charge, so battery is not dead, not blacklisted, no Secure locked and no screen damage qualifies for the $200 trade in value.
    What do these places do with these old trade in smart phones?

    Is the Verizon version available at the same low cost?
    If I buy the unlocked version will I be able to get VZW new LTE bands? Super LTE or whatever they call it?
    The Verizon S8 can be had for $200 off if you trade in a phone (if you don't have one, buy a working old smart phone from Swappa to trade in). That Verizon branded phone will work 100% with all Verizon features. The Unlocked phone... will not.

    I was just quoted $250 off the $840 asking price for a Verizon S8+. I am thinking of sending ok in my old HTC Thunderbolt. Hahaha, that'd be the best thing that phone ever did for me, save me $250. So total for the s8+ was $590.

    I just traded my S7 Edge for a new S8 Plus. $500 to trade. got the AT&T version since the unlocked won't support wifi calling or HD Voice. good deal.

    We're you able to get that through a store or was it online with Samsung?

    Damn. What happens if you buy this and put it on Verizon? Can you get the features like visual voicemail and wifi calling to work?
    I haven't tried WiFi Calling (never needed it); I've moved to Google Voice for my VVM needs. Ports easily between devices and works great on Verizon.

    VoLTE definitely works.

    Google will not issue a Google Voice number for anyone anyone in the 906 area code, which is the entire Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Thankfully I got a number several years ago when I lived downstate.

    Good question. No Google Voice numbers with 906 prefix. Also, t-mobile won't issue a phone number with a 906 area code. A lot of weird things when you live up here.

    Why make it match? My cell phone doesn't have the same area code as the city I live. So what? Use whatever number they give you.

    T-mobile and Google Voice don't own any service rights in the U.P. so they can't sell or distribute numbers up there.

    T-Mobile uses other carriers towers to roam off of which used to create a major issue with mobile to mobile minutes. It was considered an out of network call when using t-mobile in the U.P.

    I have reservations about sending a phone to a manufacturer or carrier to be judged for any reason. I hope all of the s8 deals pass on to the s8 Active, especially the BestBuy one.

    I'm picking up an s8 this week for less than this deal though, in store, so I'm good for now.

    I've had no issues trading in devices to Verizon. Either in store or mail in. I've always gotten the trade in value they had promised so I'm reasonably confident that Samsung will do the same. They provide you with a shipping label so you can track the trade ins whereabouts and know when they have received it.

    I cancelled my order because I find it ridiculous that it was not backordered when I placed the order but then was prompted that I would have to wait 2-3 weeks for shipment. Regardless of the price, I don't have the patience to wait 2-3 weeks for a device since I usually change phones every 2-3 months and by the time it would arrive I would already want the next new phone available.

    Yup. Got mine in two days. Samsung sent me an email with all the details including the tracking number. Someone has to sign for it though.

    I ordered a black S8 plus last night and have not received anything from Samsung yet. Online, it says that the order is confirmed, but no shipping information. Hopefully it will be here in a couple of days.......

    Mine took about 24 hrs to get a confirmed email. Currently my S8 unlocked is saying backordered.

    I ordered my S8 on June 20th, and it has been "Back Ordered" ever since.

    I have contacted "customer service" several times attempting to get an expected ship date, but each time (3X), Customer Service says it should only be 1-3 days more.

    I'm really disappointed that a hugh company ($175 Billion sales) would conduct a sale without having the inventory to actually deliver to order.

    If Samsung doesn't hassle me about the $200 trade in allowance it will probably be worth it.
