    Verizon customer service has publicly stated on Twitter that the only feature that won't work on the unlocked S9/S9+ is the visual voicemail. They specifically stated WiFi calling will work on unlocked. Now whether that's the truth or not, who knows, I'm counting on it being true. I tried to embed the tweets for proof, but mods blocked me.
    I asked this question (WiFi calling) on VZW's phone support, and was told it would work.

    Then I went into a VZW store and asked and was told it would not.

    I went with the branded device since that will work for sure, and it is a deal-breaker for me to be without it.

    Should be interesting to hear what people's experiences are with the unlocked devices with respect to WiFi calling once their phones are in-hand and activated.

    wifi calling and video calling arent enough for me to pay the extra money. i get great reception everywhere i go (dallas,Tx area) and i do facetime with my fiance on my macbook. video calling quality isnt nearly as good as facetime so i will pass lol
    You also won't have Verizon voicemail so use an alternate option.

    So I'm hearing conflicted reports about the actual release, phone-in-hand date for Best Buy preorders. Some say the 12th, others say Friday the 16th. How does the Verizon Up program affect this? I thought I was enrolled but BB told me the 16th.

    My Verizon account says mine will ship on 3/12. So in 7-8 days I'll have mine in hand.

    I ordered mine on the 2nd but signed up for UP yesterday. The operator said I should now get it by the 12th. Hope she's right.

    I'm so excited! According to My Verizon app by new S9 will be shipped "by March 12"! Hurray!

    I "visited" a S9 in Best Buy today and loved the Lilac Purple color that I had ordered! Can't wait!

    Just to clarify some confusion here as I had the same question. If you order a verizon phone via the verizon website and are part of the UP program you will get it early on the 12th. If you order a verizon phone via the best buy site no matter what you will get it on the 16th. I confirmed this with verizon....to get it early you have to order directly from them.

    So then we should expect our phones to ship out Thursday and arrive Monday? Sounds good to me

    I really hope it comes Monday. I'm off that day and since I'm on my sister's account, I have to go to her house and wait for the phone to come.

    Kodia: The device will be shipped by the 12th and delivered by the 14th This is what my Verizon rep told me. I think it is what we should expect.

    Am I screwed on delivery now? When I purchased on Sunday I was given a delivery date of 3/12. Today I found out about the promotion with the gear 3. The lady said...and I found it hard to believe that if I canceled the order and reordered the watch and phone my delivery date would not change. Now the watch shows 3/12 and the phone 3/16. Will that possibly change and update tonight or i now have to wait a week longer?
