This is my first time doing an exchange on the Samsung India site. Have always sold the previous year flagship to Samsung Cafe's till now.
Can anyone tell me if they take just the phone or everything in the box? I only got the option of deferred exchange which means i'll get the ultra on monday and then in 2-4 days samsung will send someone for the pickup of the old one.

You chose the 256GB variant?
Did you receive any order packed/ready to ship message?

How you guys are going to manage the charging adapter? On Samsung Shop it's out of stock now, same case for Amazon, Flipkart, Croma and Tatacliq !
I had plan to order it but now it's too late !
Everybody at home uses Samsung 25w charger, will be managing it with them.
I will get my own very soon, but I dont see a necessity to get one right away.
No microsd card problem kinda solved with 512GB variant,
No MST for Samsung Pay in India is a hole that cannot be plugged. Why Samsung? :mad:

I foolishly bought 2 extra 45w chargers last year for the Ultra which I never got 😂😂😂
Finally they'll be put to use. If Samsung pickup only the phone like apple does and let's me keep the box contents then icing on the cake 😋

I will have to get one as I don't have 25 Watt one, I have Mi Sonic 27 Watt, OP WRAP 30 Watt and another Mi 18 Watt charger. Don't want to use anything else then 25Watt. As charging speed matters to me most of the time !

Maybe I will use 18 Watt Power bank to charge it overnight sometimes. As I mostly drain the battery before going to bed and I wake up with below 10% !!! 😂

Even with my OP Nord where I get 8+ hrs of SOT still it gets drained ! 😂

And I don't even game on it !

They will mostly take everything. It will be done over Cashify AFAIK, you check on their website! They generally ask for such things during evaluation, however when they come for pickup you can ask them what amount you will get with or without charger! It's better not to trade charger worth 3K for which you might only get 500 bucks or so !
So you didn't go for HDFC Discount?

I talked to Samsung customer care once and they told me phone with everything is preferable but doesn't matter if it isn't available and then they pointed me to a link, which I can't find. Which has the terms and conditions... There also it was mentioned phone is enough... Maybe they changed the policy now...🤔

Thanks i didn't go with hdfc because it all works out the same. If you take hdfc cashback, you lose the extra 5k exchange bonus which is exactly 5k more than the cashify buyback price. They've designed the system such that you walk out equal one way or the other :D

Still undecided on the watch or 10k eshop coupon.

Let me know if 512GB is available by 25th Jan, I can travel to Mysore to get it.
My Samsung Shop order shipment says free delivery by 5th Feb. I do not have a phone right now, using a Nokia feature phone :cry:
it seems 512GB variants will be available on or after feb 5th only ......as me and my friend booked 256 and 512 resp on 15th itself,just now had a call with my dealer and he said 256gb variants are already billed to the respective stores,will reach them by tomorrow itself for billing on monday morning while mentioning 512gb will be delayed and availability from feb 5th only----------This time around it seems all s21 variants are fully imported from Vietnam not assembled in India
