I didnt pre order, I signed up for instore pick up on the 2nd! I got to play with one today. I left my first impressions in droid news under
Nexus 7 2 4.3 PA
Unlocked and ROM'ed Note 3!!!!!
I just pre-ordered on Verizon's site (2 - Note 3's, one for me and one for my son) and was able to keep my existing unlimited data plan. There is another thread on this topic on how to do it. The Note 3's are shipping on 10/10!
just pre-ordered mine with the promo/glitch/whatever is going on right now to keep my unlimited data. fingers crossed everything goes smoothly and we just saved a bunch of money.
