    Had an S8 for two months, and it's a great phone, but I find myself missing my iPhone. AT&T basically told me sorry about your luck you're stuck with it. It would cost me $350 to turn this phone in and then get a new iPhone.

    I like this phone but I had an iPhone for so long, Android is just so foreign at this point.

    I'm just complaining because AT&T's policies are stupid.

    Their policies aren't "stupid" you had 14 days to test it out and decide whether you like it or not. If they let anyone switch phones anytime they wanted they would lose a ton of money. If you don't like it, pay it off and get an iPhone or sell it to pay for the cost of an iPhone.

    Withdrawal can be difficult There are quite a few threads in the S8 forum directed at iOS converts, you're in the right place for assistance.

    I absolutely feel you! I just signed up with Sprint and I had kind of decided to exchange for the iPhone 7 bc I ordered an iPad too. Sprint then turns around and raises my original down payment from $55 dollars to $210 dollars if I wanted to exchange. I was only two day in to my 14 day return exchange policy. Sprint is at the bottom for a reason. To address your post I too used exclusive apple for many years until a year ago. I have the S8 regular size and so I've just decided to be happy with it. I think you will find that with a little more time that you'll find yourself to appreciate the S8 as its actually a killer device. The only reason why I wanted to exchange to the 7 iPhone was I wanted to be able to text and receive calls on my new iPad. Give your S8 some time and you'll find yourself liking it more and more. Plus the iPhone 8 is not far off. I was told from a very high up engineer with Apple to not get an iPhone right now. Three new models are not far away and you'd be wasting your money. He said wait at all costs. So if you're are going to still make the move and spend that 350 according to this guy who makes over 20k a month very high up with Apple, he said WAIT!!! Good luck.

    Won't it be the iPhone 7S? Lol. They've been getting away with S models for years now. Why would they quit.

    Not sure how you could miss the iPhone over this phone but to each his own. Should have been able to tell that in two weeks easily though. Not AT&T's fault.

    You really expect them to just let you switch to an ipone for free after two months? Their policy is the same as everyone else.

    Not sure why you think some one should exchange you a phone after using for 2 months. You could always sell the S8 and buy an iPhone. Or find someone willing to trade etc. Don't think AT&T has any obligation to help out, some scenarios they do help out but this is more like buyers remorse and it's too late to return or exchange.

    Yeah those massive bezels on the new iPhone 8 leaks... They are stunning! Along side the shiney casing... Looks retro like it's from the past not the present. Most hideous iPhone I've seen, part of the reason I moved from an iPhone to this s8, apple gone barmy.

    Came from 4 years of iPhone and I would not look back. I am also heavily into the apple eco system and the S8 works well with it using all the google apps.

    The iPhone 8 leaks give it similar bezels to the s8. Not sure what you're looking at.

    I just don't understand the need to charge $350 to turn in the phone. I mean, even used they can still sell it for pretty close to new price. I would understand like $100 or something, but $350, to be able to give them the phone back seems crazy.

    You think they can sell a two month old used phone at a similar to new price?🤣😂🤣 Used phones take a hit similar to driving a new car off the lot.

    Not sure why the original poster can't just sell his phone on swappa or eBay. Yes you will take a big hit. Especially if you paid full retail. But such is life. Your best bet is to use some of the iOS launchers and make the phone more Apple like. Slowly switch it over. Look, I feel your pain. After many years of iPhone use I just got the S8 and am struggling with it. It's a total shock. But I will keep at it.

    That's att's early termination fee. I think all cell companies have that fee. The company is trying to make some of their money back because they'll have to sell the phone as refurbished with a lower price.

    If you feel a two month old phone can bring almost retail then sell it yourself make 700.00 buck, pay off your carrier and make a profit!

    Sell your S8 on Swappa.com and get an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. The S8, you can easily sell it for $500+. The iPhone 6s Plus you can easily buy it for roughly $500 more or less depending on condition and type. No extra fees and safe PayPal transaction, no risk as all phones are verified via IMEI check.

    I missed my V20 so that was what I actually did. Carriers rip you off with trade in values and added activation fees and taxes. Glad to have my V20 back, though S8 was a great phone.

    Tip: do not sell it on eBay as they will take a huge cut. I learned my lesson and never sell my phone on there anymore. They take like 12-15% which is like $100. Swappa charges a flat rate of either $10-20 and it's actually added on to the sell price.

    I don't get it. IOS is more complicated. You HAVE TO use iTunes to sync and transfer files. After all these years, I still don't know how it works. With Android it's the good old drag and drop.

    iPhone already lost the race to have the first bezelless phone and first to have imbedded fingerprint. Some Chinese manufacture already came out with it:

    If it makes you feel any better I have a S8+ and an iPhone 7+ and I prefer the Samsung.

    Are you customizing the S8 or keeping it stock?

    Try a few launchers and see what you like. I'm currently using Arrow Launcher by Microsoft. It's very good.

    Which is why hardly anyone will know about it and when the iPhone releases it, everyone that buys it will say how innovative it is.

    Same with Samsung. Most people think they were the first to release an iris scanner to unlock the phone when in fact Fujitsu did it back in 2015.

    People also think Samsung is the first to use facial recognition when in fact it was released back in 2005 by OMRON corporation.

    Not much is innovative anymore. Most of its been done. But unless you have an abnormal obsession with technology, you will think the first company to heavily market it was the one to create it.
