Even though I'm still undecided if I really want it I've gone ahead a pre-ordered it to get the free Gear VR and 128GB microSD.

What I am certain of is that I have no interest on the VR, so I'll be selling it (sorry, locally) if I do decide to keep the edge.

What about you?

I plan to get the Gear s2 in lieu of the gear vr myself. If I got the vr, I am still undecided... Would try it out to see if I like it

I'm planning to keep the VR. I'm curious as to how that technology may evolve over the next couple of years.

Hell yes I am. I've used Gear VR before and it's awesome. Don't judge until you've tried it for yourself!

Gear VR is sick, have it with my note 5. Love the live NBA games streamed through it, has you sitting courtside at half court with No lag at all. Don't sell until you've put them on first.

I'm new to VR. Where do you find content like live NBA games?

That's fair point.

Interesting but I'm guessing will be nothing like it up here. I doubt content/features will be limited/restricted up here, I'm surprised Canadians are getting this offer TBH.

I am hoping to contact Samsung and see if I can get a wireless charging pad instead. I already have gear VR for my S6. Don't need or want another one.

Why do you think Samsung is giving these away. Nobody wants them. It's like the Nintendo Virtual Boy all over again.:-\

It's a promotional offer to generate interest in Gear VR. What better way to get the general public aware that these things exist than to bundle it in with the flagship phone?

So I got the S7 Edge (VZW) using my Grandfathered in 2 year upgrade option (little over $300).... I will be looking to buy a Gear VR, since I could not get a free one unless I changed my upgrade option.

The free Gear VR is the only reason I'm even considering pre-ordering the S7 instead of waiting for the price to sink in a couple of months as I'd normally do.

I fully intend to keep the Gear Vr, a friend has it and it's a neat experience, though I admittedly wouldn't spend $100 on it...

I don't even want one. I just want the phone and the year of Netflix. I doubt that I will even go to the website rot order the VR or whatever it is that you have to do to get one.
