    Late yesterday Verizon surprised everyone by being the first U.S. carrier to officially offer the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Even more surprisingly, they did this only a few hours after the announcement of the device from Samsung. At that time we reported they didn't have pre-orders available yet. While that is true, Big Red took things a step further this morning by announcing they will be taking preorders starting tomorrow, September 6th, at 9AM EST.

    This is quite remarkable for VZW. Not only did they beat all of the other U.S. carriers to announcing the device, they also will be offering the pre-orders almost immediately. Could this uncharacteristic behavior be a sign of things to come in the future? It isn't likely, but we can always cross our fingers.

    I called Verizon to preorder the Galaxy Note 3 and they were going to let me order for $699.99 for full retail price to allow me to keep unlimited data plan. This is for the 32GB model. I think I prefer the 64 GB model and may have to wait.

    I would not wait on 64GB as we might never see it ...especially in US at Verizon....32GB internal should be standard on all phones...plus you have sd card to enjoy added storage...

    This morning I tried to do my preorder online to buy a GNote3 out right and it kept continuing me to the 2 year contract charging me the $299.00 price instead of the $699.00 full price that I selected. So I went to a Verizon store and talking about being harassed about giving up my unlimited plan. The guy acted like he did not want my money for the buying it out right. telling me I do not need a unlimited plan. He became argumentative to the point that I left that Verizon store. There was another salesmen doing the same with another customer wanting to keep there unlimited plan. I left so upset that I gave up for today. I will try at my friends store Monday when he is back from vacation. Has any of you had any problems with pushy sales men or problems online?

    As BK says...I don't think we will see the 64gb here...

    Remember the Note 2, thinking we could get the 32gb and all that was offered was the 16gb :)...

    i had the same experience a few weeks back when I was going to get the S4. I went in and told them I wanted to get it retail to keep my unlimited and they kept trying to talk me out of it. Then they sold me on the Edge program that was coming out that Saturday, promising me that I could keep my unlimited data that way(which of course was a lie). For the life of me, I couldn't figure out what kind of salesman just flat out refuses a sale.

    I said over and over that I wanted unlimited. It was like he was trying to talk me out it. So I told him that he does not want my money and I left a little upset. I will get it Monday at a friends store.

    Serious Question: What is the advantage of preordering? Is it to get the phone sooner, or to assure getting a high demand consumer device, or is it to avoid having to go to a brick and mortar store and have a salesman trick you into releasing the unlimited data plan?

    I know they've been instructed to try to get people off of unlimited data, but to get argumentative about it seems a bit much. I wonder if Verizon is giving any extra bonuses for reps who change people to a tiered plan, or the Edge plan or whatever the newest feeble attempt they can come up with...

    If it's like accessories and other ad ons it's not so much a bonus but a quota. You may even, from time to time, get a phone call from an in store rep out of the blue trying to get you to come in and buy something. I've gotten 3 since February when my wife's line went month to month.
