    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.

    Here's the link to Verizon's Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear landing page: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 & Galaxy Gear - Verizon Wireless

    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?
