LOL i didn't feel like paying the $120 so just went with the smaller s9 and in a month or two if i change my mind i'll upgrade to the s9+ and pay whatever the rate is at that time. I went with the purple since it'll be in a case and nobody will see it anyway. My wife thought it was "Pretty".
I did a JOD upgrade from the Note8 to the V30 on Feb 20. Like the V30 except for some weird issues with old deletrd texts reappearing several times over the last week. Asked about doing a return and going back to the Note8, was told thay was fi r and it would be like I didn't do the JOD upgrade, then I hkt the bad news, I would have to pay $150 down to get back to the Note8. I didn't have to make a down payment when I jumped to the Note8 when I pre-ordered it last year. No down payment for my wife to upgrade to it either. I don't have $150 to put down since I am off work on medical leave with a screwed up knee. They offered to have me do buyer's remorse at my local store and pay $150 down and get bill credits for that amount, do a JOD upgrade pay the $150 down and get $150 immediate bill credit and free overnight shipping, do a JOD upgrade to an S8+ or an S9 with free overnight shipping, or $120 down on the S9+ and free overnight shipping. Again, don't have extra funds available due to tight finances while I'm on medical leave receiving short term disability so I took the deal for a blue S9.
I knew when I was debating the upgrade to the V30 for days last week, I should have listened to my gut and stuck with the Note8. Although the data speeds I have gotten on this V30 have been the best I have ever had. Hit 136 Mbps today. Hope these speeds keep going like that with the S9.
Very impatiently waiting like you all. 😱
