    IF no 32gb option from VZW, the S4 is nothing to me. Also find it ironic Gameloft marketing their 2gb apps with Samsung for a device with 9gb storage.

    With AT&T announcing the 32GB S4 available on Friday, will Verizon get the larger storage device?

    I don't know why everyone is stressing about the storage. Doesn't it have room to add a 32gb mini sd card? I know I will use that and appreciate it coming from an Iphone 5 that doesn't have the capability to expand storage.

    Correct me if I'm wrong anyone but i think it supports up to 64GB sd card. And i think people are upset and disappointed about 16GB because apps can't be moved to the sd card like in the past and many people have a lot of apps. I'm talking like 100 or more. Not too mention that certain files have to be on the phone memory and not the sd card (or at the least a problem i ran into...can't speak for others) or you can't read your files. This takes up space. Also the phone is advertised as 16GB but what's failed to be mentioned is that after the os all the customer is left with about 9GB or so out the box. In the past customers were able to delete bloatware to free up space where now the only option is to disable it and that doesn't give you more space just removes it from your app drawer. And people like me who don't root their phones or tinker with them don't delete apps and such like with titanium backup. For me 16GB is good. I don't have a lot of apps and all my pics are on my sd card

    We're upset because you cannot move your apps to the SD card. You can only install apps to the ROM. On my current phone I'm using nearly 14GB of ROM storage and that includes a debloated version of Ginger Bread. I would likely have to greatly reduce my current number of apps on an S4 and carefully monitor storage on the phone from the get-go. I currently have an unlimited data plan and would like to keep it by paying full retail, but I cannot justify the price considering the storage constraints. This just isn't acceptable for a flagship phone. So, I just cancelled my pre-order for the S4 and made sure that the service representative knew why I was cancelling. I originally wanted the Note II, but was waiting for a 32GB version, which has never been released by Verizon. I guess I'll have to wait for the Note 3, or whatever else Samsung has coming down the tubes later this year.

    Interested in knowing myself.

    Those who are ordering, Keep in mind that your 14 day return period begins when the device ships, not when you activate or get the device.

    In my case, since I'm ordering for a family member who's never had a smart phone , I think I want to let them try out the phone for the maximum days they can, and if the pre orders come a week earlier than in store, we can wait that extra week, waited months anyways.

    This way they can try it out, and if phone had problem, easier to switch out for a brand new one, or if they don't like it switch to a different phone.

    The 14-day period starts when the device is received.

    Really? Could be it's been changed (to be fair), or was always a false statement of a rep from my past experiences. Well, sorry to anyone who I confused.

    If you are eligible for the 20 month upgrade, but your contract isn't up yet, can you order a phone from a 3rd party and still get the subsidy?

    Yes, as long as you have an upgrade available then you can order from a 3rd party. They make you log in with your VZW credentials to check.

    Be very careful with WireFly. Do some research and such before you commit.

    I was in Sams Club in NH last Saturday and I walked by the mobile phone area to take a quick peak at the HTC One (even though I'm on VZW I wanted to see one in person). The mobile phone rep walks over and asked if I was with AT&T and I said no I'm with Verizon. He said the reason I asked it that we (meaning Sams) had the S4 for AT&T in stock. He then went on to say they would have the VZW S4 in stock on May 24th. I said all the rumors I heard was May 30th and he replied saying that his morning sales meeting stated 5/24....

    Take it with a grain of salt but maybe we only have to way until the 24th (fingers crossed)

    Look like the sales rep at Sam's Club was right... (I believe they are selling it for $179)

    Verizon Wireless ‏@VZWnews 58m
    New Release Date: Samsung Galaxy S4 Available for purchase May 23. Samsung Galaxy S4 - Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy S4 @VZWalbert 4G LTE


    I broke down and picked up the HTC One, was at AT&T store and checked out both the S4 & One side by side and personally preferred the One. I also have great AT&T coverage in the past and enjoy their faster speeds so I'm using the 14 day trial to see if it will work for me. Glad that everyone here waiting for the S4 on Verizon has less time to wait now.

    On a side note, Verizon's recent policy (no upgrades for 24 months, not getting the latest phones or at least being the last to offer them, bringing back mail in rebates etc...) changes made the decision to switch to AT&T easier. I prefer to rewards companies that appear to at least appreciate your business and lately Verizon has not. This is my opinion and I don't expect anyone else to agree but maybe after losing some long time customers Verizon will re-consider their policies of late... but then again probably not.

    made a preorder. pleasantly surprised to see I was offered an instant $50 rebate instead of the mail-in. I transferred an upgrade from an unlimited line to a dumbphone line I have and everything went great.

    Then I got my confirmation email and it listed my unlimited line's phone number instead of the dumbphone line. I chickened out and cancelled the order. Too afraid of losing unlimited. Hopefully after the phone is officially released I'll be able to transfer and order. I'm also hoping I might get surprised and see a 32gb option available with the official release, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

    @phantom... I did the exact same thing and the confirmation email also gave the unlimited line's number. I called VZW's automated customer service line and checked the order status. I entered the dumb lines number and it did confirm the order was received and in process. I then checked the unlimited lines number and it could not find the order. I did not cancel, but will tread lightly! I am testing this out on my wife's unlimited line as she uses almost no data! I will update after I try to activate...

    Same for me. My wife uses almost no data at all (always on wifi) so I'm not too terribly concerned with losing unlimited on her line. Would like to keep it if possible though.

    I am super concerned with losing my $20 data discount on that line though.

    now why didn't I think of that! I'm going to have to fight the urge to re-order now.

    My credit card was charged for the order tonight and the receipt was available on My Verizon. The receipt shows the transaction for the dumb line that the upgrade was transferred to, so everything looks good to go!
