Hello everyone...it's been about 4 years since I was on android (yes, I was on iOS). Super excited for this phone. Just placed today for an ultra 128GB unlocked, and was surprised to see still expected to deliver end of next week. This is actually perfect for me as I am on the road and will be back on the 6th.

Random question...Trying to preorder through Samsung with financing (with Verizon as the carrier) but the only option is for 36 months. When I reserved it showed 24 months as the only option. Am I missing something or just S.O.L.?

What's the difference? Take the 36 mos, pay it off in 24.

Back!

Pre-ordered from Sammy. Man, it has been a while! I've been living in iOS jail for the last 4 years and I cannot wait to get back into Android -Sheesh!

Got the 128GB in black - plus the Smart Cam and Tab A kids combo. Had to do it - I have a one year old so, why not LOL.

I know Sammy is not what it used to be in terms of development, but here's hoping!

I'd be willing to bet those doing the Samsung financing are in for a shocker of more than just a hard pull on their credit!
I've read where this is listed as a CFA (Consumer Finance Agreement) which drags down FICO scores way more than a simple line of credit or even store credit card! I'm all for x days same as cash, 0% APR over terms, et al. But CFAs are utter cancer to one's credit score.

I have had samsung fina. for while and maybe dropped my credit FICO score like 5 points, last sept when I bought the Note 10 plus, since has came back up where it was before.

Interesting, that sounds typical of opening a small line and paying it down. That's a good thing as the last thing someone wants is a big hit typical of CFAs that just doesn't recover regardless if its payed in full or not!

Fedex label has been created. Looks like expected ship date is 3/2 to be delivered 3/4.

Looked at my FedEx delivery manager.

Ordered from Samsung.com Friday the 21st around 12:30am.

Creditors(big ones like for a house or car) pull your full report and can see its samsung and arent going to dock you for it if you do the process manually. Its nothing to worry about.
