Preordered S20U 128 gb in the at&t flavor. I need the branded version, I make good use of wifi calling. I'm in some areas with poor or no service and wifi calling is awesome. It works on my unlocked Pixels but has never worked on an unlocked Samsung phone.

This time i order through Samsung since BestBuy doesn't have TMobile version and I didn't want an unlocked one.

Got the Watch and Buds with credits.

I heard Samsung trade in can get ugly sometimes. Just hope it goes smoothly.

I had ZERO issues when I did a trade in when I ordered the Note 10+ Pre-Order - evertyhing went very smoothly - and I expect it will do the same this time - I traded a Pixel XL4 and got 600 for trade in with the other credits (total $235) Great Deal - Can't wait to get the new Ultra - ATT Version - I honestly don't even miss rooting any more.....

Is normal wear ok on a trade in or does it have to be mint to get full amount?
Preordered the 128gb unlocked version with buds+, 45watt charger and 256gb SD card with $235 credit.

It just needs to turn on and not have a cracked screen.

What's the difference between getting a carrier variant and unlocked? Is there a plus to getting the Tmobile one?

I'm with AT&T and while my unlocked Pixel gets wifi calling, Samsung's unlocked phones won't. I'm getting the AT&T model for that reason. I use wifi calling quite a bit in a couple areas with either poor or no service. I believe I've heard the extra services from other carriers work on an unlocked phone but I'm not sure.

I'm with T-Mobile. I'm not sure if the extra services would work for us, so I went with the T-Mobile model to be on the safe side.

I will never get another carrier branded phone again!
Hate jingles, screens and other useless crap they put on there.
There's always workarounds to limits.
NEVER capitulate to their garbage.
There's always Apple! :)

Forgot to mention I purchased a S10 off of eBay for $349, used it for trade in and got $600 off. I was going to trade in my Note 10 5G but ended up selling it on swappa for more so it all worked out!!

I'm on Verizon. Until last year or two years ago none of the services would work on unlocked phones. That has all changed now. Unlocked Samsung phones work with Wi-Fi calling and all of the extra features.
