I was upgrading two lines on Verizon. Went with the S3 in black ($49.99). Prefer the white but it'll end up with a case on it anyway. Add in the reward zone points and I'm making $50 on that deal.
Second line went with the Note II for the full $300 with the $100 in reward zone points.
After I receive my points I'll have paid $150 for a black S3 and a white Note II.
FYI: I called my order in. Wait time was ~40 minutes. When I asked about changing plans (Share Everything....) I was told that not all lines require the change to be made for some reason. But I was also told that sometimes they're told about it at a later time and if they are, they'll email me/call to let me know. Fingers crossed~
No you are not. You're being an idiot about it. It is understood that S3 wouldn't cost -$50 without a plan. And yes, it is still a good deal - even with a plan. Here is an example: let us say your plan is up for upgrade, but you don't want get a new phone. Get this S3, ebay it for $450 and use that money to pay your phone bill -- which in my case is 11 months of phone service.
I completed the S3 checkout this morning for AT&T on BB with the website erroring out lots of times, but later got an email something was wrong with the order, now waiting on hold with CS for EVER to ask what is wrong. ARGGH
The phone might be reported stolen and you get visit or a rejection, but more to the point it might be locked. But you don't need to activate or register it, you put in your sim and if it works, it works.
LOL hilarious. That was a little rough though. I mean you already know idiots exist..
why do you feel the need to be so harsh?
so i have a question.. are smart phones smart now.. like can sim card phones have bad esn's?
i'm looking for a galaxy for tmobile and will buy one off craigslist but i want to be sure i'll be able to activate it. Don't want to be screwed if i'm buying a phone that was reported lost or stolen or something and it's not able to be used..
Your phone can actually be blocked AFTER they sell it to you.. even a month later. Just because it works now doesn't mean it will a month from now.
a) if the person bought the phone on a tmobile value plan.. the phone is effectively being financed. if they dont pay it, itll eventually get blocked
b) if they report it stolen after they sell it to you, itll get blocked.
Is anyone opting for the t-mobile galaxy note 2?
Is the T-mobile $250 deal for value plan still available in t-mobile retail stores?
329-100 = 229 and you don't have to pay $20 extra per month for the phone portion (not that it matters in my case, I'd immediately ETF the $200 to save at least $360/yr to go with Monthly4G). Just wonder why there hasn't been mention of this given that the Note 2 is a superior phone that you won't need to upgrade in 6 months when T-mo enables LTE for the note 2 but not for the s3.

It requires a plan, you can't make money, it costs you hundreds of dollars. Goes to show that companies are much smarter than most consumers, they've convinced dimwits that a phone really is $50 or free or whatever "with a plan".
It's an accepted assumption that you need a plan. Most sane people with anything above a double-digit IQ know that.
If someone gave you a 'FREE' car with a combustion engine (which unless you're told otherwise is what we'd all assume you'd get), it's not going anywhere without fuel, and you'll have to pay to fuel that car unless you found a way to convert the engine to run on something that's free. So even a 'FREE' car isn't a free car by your estimation.
