Default Paying retail price

I tried to get the 649 retail at best buy but got denied because the Corporate store doesn't allow you to buy full price on Launch Days?

I had to pay the 750 best buy price. Can anyone else confirm this?

There is nothing wrong with that. I did. There aren't really many options, are there? If I bought the international variant then I'd get no LTE.

I'm thinking about getting the s5 also because I've been missing my s4. Does anyone think the at&t Next program is good? And is anyone else on the Next upgrade plan?

I did mine on the next plan... all it is is a monthly payment plan to pay the full retail price of the phone, $650... so it's $32.50/month for the plan that lets you upgrade every year ($32.50/month x 18 months = $650). when you want to upgrade in a year (or 18 months and the phone would be paid in full), you either trade the phone in for the next one or just pay off the remaining balance ($260) and then sell the old one online and get the new phone on the NEXT plan

LG G3 (32GB, White)
HTC One M8 (32GB, Glacial Silver)
iPad rMini (16GB, Space Gray)
OnePlus One (64GB, Sandstone Gray) <- sold on Swappa
Nexus 5 (16GB, Black) <- sold on Swappa
Galaxy S5 <- laggy POS and TW sucks

I don't know much as the next program. I don't like it from what I've read

What is your bill if you don't mind me asking. Mine is $79 plus the 32 would be like $113-114. I think I might wait till it gets a little older and the next price would be a little cheaper than I'll get one.

well, I haven't received a bill yet that has the NEXT upgrade on it... so, my bill is $125 now, will be ~$158.00 with my SGS 5 on it.

$100 -> 10GB data bucket (shared between my wife and I)
$15 -> wife's line cost (for service)
$15 -> my line cost (for service)
$32.50 -> SGS 5
23% off national account discount
taxes

=$158 ish with the NEXT plan added

if you have a 10GB or higher mobile share plan, your lines are just $15/each if you are 1) financing a phone through NEXT; OR 2)pay for the phone upfront

If you're on the newer Mobile Share plans (especially 10GB+) it will save you money over a new two year contract. You do see a little bit of a higher monthly bill, but you save quite a bit over time. Make sure to get AT&T Insurance or Squaretrade, though. And the 20 month Next is better than the 26 month Next.
