I don't know what we're going to do for renewal at this point. I got off of chat this morning with Sprint and the first rep tried to tell me that I needed to be careful buying a phone from Amazon because they are not an authorized dealer or seller and that Sprint might not activate a phone purchased from Amazon because it might not have a Sprint logo on it. I pushed the rep and said really, Amazon is not an authorized seller/dealer and the phones might not be Sprint? The rep insisted Amazon is not an authorized seller. Sometimes talking to Sprint is more frustrating than it's worth.
I have been wanting the Galaxy Note 2, but maybe I will keep looking around.

I tend not to chase technology too much so I'm fine waiting another couple of weeks or so before grabbing the Note 2. I might look up some rumor sites and see what they are saying about Note 3.
As far as Touchwiz, I feel the same way about HTC's Sense. To me it becomes more of a pain than enjoyment. I guess I'm one of those that prefer the stock android rom over the individual phone makers enhancements.

|daffy90270||You might be able to get this through Amazon then drop sprint. I did it... I got 3 new Galaxy S3 assuming I was renewing my contract. But sprint tried to RAPE me with this plan. Unlimited family $169+30+30+30 for each "Smart Phone" . I called because I was paying $90 extra for 3G. I asked the magic question. What do I need to do to get out of this contract. Sprint rep.. Sir you arent on contract. I ask but I got new phones from Amazon. Sprint: It isnt our fault that Amazon hasnt submitted the new paper work. This was after 3 months. So.... Hmmm might be a good way to make some $$ but of course this is a definate YMMV|

TouchWiz is the best skin in my experience, after ROMING/ROOTING for years and all of the little quirks I keep most of my devices stock unless I run across something I really can't stand.

The price WILL drop eventually, but that depends on your threshold for waiting, because as they say, there's ALWAYS something better 3-6 months away. The S4 and Note 3 will probably both hit in 2013. (obviously the S4 sooner). If you can get it for under $199 its a deal. I paid the original $299 and I am completely satifisifed. I've seen it as low as 129 for Verizon on Amazon/Dell.
I don't mind Touchwiz, after rooting and custom ROMing for a long time, nowadays I just leave everything stock unless a particular item really bothers me. If I was really into multi view I might root to be able to add Netflix.

I am not a huge fan of Touch Wiz, Just like I am not a fan of Sense. I bought Apex launcher pro so I don't have to deal with much of either.

I was more waiting for the price to drop. Paying $300 + 2 year contract isn't my thing. I'm pretty sure I'm going to order it tomorrow. The good thing is I'm out of contract and outside of the battery life on my 2 1/2 year old Evo, I don't really HAVE to upgrade. My Evo is rooted and still does things most of my friends new iphones don't do.
I am impressed with the size and S pen on the Note. I will just have to root it because I don't care for their Touchwiz and (hate to say it) iphone like feel. I prefer all my apps to be on one page where I scroll up and down over the side to side iphone style.

I've never had a drop call but then again I don't really make a lot of phone calls.
I was with Voicestream until they were bought out by T-Mobile and had spotty service inside. After 10 years, we got into a "fight" over how much they wanted to charge me for a Blackberry so I jumped to AT&T.
AT&T was the worse. MMS would take forever to send/receive, text wouldn't come through at all, dropped calls, etc. I chalked it up on the iphone just coming out and their network not being up to par.
Either way, once that contract was up I jumped to Sprint because I didn't like Android phones on T-Mobile and haven't been happier.
I can't comment on Verizon because I would string together two cans and learn smoke signals before I give them another penny.

After reading some posts, I walked into my best buy. Dude didn't even ask a manager for pricematch. Manager came at the end of process and adjusted price.
- $50 GC from S3 bought last week with $100 deal
- $50 GC from current purchase applied to same purchase
- $5 leftover on my old GC
- $25 Reward zone points
Walked out paying $58. Vday gift for the wife as well...so it made her night!

|uapyro||Deal is dead, which sucks. From the time I left home, til the time I got to the store the price went from $169.99 to $249.99. Since I already paid the $50 early upgrade fee, I went ahead and got it and hope that it may drop a little bit before the 30 day prime match period ends.|

|onelord||Thank the Lord i was able to price match with Best buy mobile. And i used the 50 buck promo gift card...Wife is happy and Happy V-Day to her..|
