    Hey Mandy, Thanks for the great info. Couple of quick questions if you don't mind while I wait eagerly (impatiently) for my new phone. Does VZW put any less pre-installed software on this phone than others, given the fact apps can't be moved to the SD card? I think I read that's a JB thing, though. How much branding has Verizon done to the phone and do you consider it unattractive or unobrusive? Got a lot of questions on how useful the new "tricks" are in your opinion, but I don't want to overask my welcome. :)

    THANKS

    To be clear here, there are two different types of "early upgrades" mentioned in this thread. I'm sure you're correct about the one you're speaking of - where you call in and customer service obliges. However, a lot of customers still have an "early upgrade" at the 20 month mark of their contract. Those types do work on pre-orders and iPhones. Of course, once the remaining crop of people with contracts expiring before January 2014 disappear, those will all be a thing of the past. Perhaps "early upgrade" isn't the term for that anymore, but I know it used to be.

    You are correct, the ability to freeze apps are part of Jelly Bean now. I would say it has about the usual amount of VZW bloat, but has a decent amount of Samsung bloat as well. Its nothing that cant be removed with root.

    I think my favorite feature is the hover. Basically, I can eat cheetos and read text messages without getting my screen cheesy! Do love that.

    I wish they didn't push their release back a full month behind everyone else, this wait is brutal. My phone's been suffering hard for the past few months and I can barely use it for anything good anymore. I'm not looking forward to waiting another three weeks to finally get my hands on the GS4... I can only hope the pre-orders will be sent out a few days ahead of the 30th release.
