    Totally agree so that was why I argued about it and even though it shows up it is then cancelled out by the $30 off. If I hadn't argued I would have never gotten the discount.

    I was looking at Verizon's deal but I thought it was a little cheaper from Samsung because have to pay tax when buy from Verizon which was ~$70. I didn't think about the activation fee when ordering from Samsung, I just thought I could swap my sim card in. I ordered an S7 on eBay to use as my trade in so I haven't placed my preorder yet.

    Good point. Gave friend my Turbo 2. I just swapped the Sim Frome her iPhone. There won't be a charge on her bill for that.

    I live in NY and Samsung does business there so either way I would have to pay 8% tax and the base phone price is close to the same so the tax is for all practical purposes a wash. I have never been able to do a sim card switch so I have not idea how that works as far as the carrier is concerned. It seems as if they changed the sim card size or shape to make that more difficult to do.

    I don't know if it is different for a brand new phone? They make sim adapters so you can use the smaller ones in older phones with the bigger sim card. Try activating the card on your current phone then swap into the new phone.

    That stinks you're stuck with tax either way. I'm sad Amazon built a place here in Ohio so now I have to pay tax on all my Amazon stuff too!

    Didn't bother me. I believe people should pay taxes shopping online. States lose millions and retail dies. Thanks internet!

    States losing millions isn't.
    State makes less. Cuts spending. State raises other taxes on me.
    It would be cheaper to just pay sales taxes.

    So I preordered mine from Samsung. I did have to pay tax. But Verizon was going to charge me tax on the whole $960 since they were giving you the money back as a credit later. Samsung only charged me tax on the discounted $535 price which is more fair. Also the Verizon trade in was only 50% off for newer phones with a 35% and 25% tier for older phones. Samsung gave me full $425 off for an S5!

    As an aside I'm not against taxes in general but I pay so much income tax to the state already I'll take my few bucks savings when I can get it!

    OK I can not confirm that this is actually my new Note 8 BUT at 3:30 this morning I was sent a message saying my order was now complete. I received a notice from FedEx that I had a package sent from Memphis, TN overnight to be delivered Tuesday by 8:00pm. It must be signed for. I just went to The Verizon website where it stated my new order had been shipped and the tracking number matched the FedEx number. I also have now had my credit card charged. If all this is not a dream or the wrong phone I will be sorely disappointed!
