Is it possible to return my Note 4 after 14 days?

Alright so I kind of have buyers remorse on my Note 4, the phone is slow bloated and frankly a tad too big. I think the return policy is 14 days but I heard 30 days as well. Not too sure on that, but I purchased it back on the 14th of February. I would like to purchase another Nexus 5 as weird as it sounds, I gave my old one to my nephew who I put on my plan and still have a few payments left on it. Do you think Sprint would work with me on this? I am a loyal customer who has never missed a payment or been late making a payment. Thanks for any insight.

Root your phone .

I like to keep stock, shouldn't have to root to make a phone usable. :) Either way I got contacted by Sprint, they called me and said they're looking into it and will call me tomorrow as it should be possible.

Thanks will do, but in the meantime anyone have any input or similar situations?

 

most likely they will not.  been there done that...  they stick pretty tightly to the 14 day policy, and they will do whatever they can to prevent a return at that point.  if you purchased the phone with a 2 year contract and not ez pay then you can possibly get a cheapo phone from ebay and swap it out on your plan, and then sell the note 4 and then buy a nexus 5.  have you thought about that?  If its ez pay you are pretty much out of luck on that though...  I do not believe sprint will allow you to have a clean ESN for that phone until the end of your fulfillment.

I am on Easy Pay, as I said since it is not far past 14 days they said it's most likely possible, I will likely have to ship the phone to them and use an older S3 until they refresh the upgrade on my line and then get another Nexus 5. I will find out for sure sometime today.

I was able to return a phone on easy pay after day 14 back in September. Took some work, but the Twitter folks got me in touch with someone that could help.

Just got another call, I was approved for the refund. :) They're gonna send me a return label and reset the upgrade on the other line and I can then get whatever I want. I love Sprint. :D But I am going back to a Nexus 5.

Note 4 lollipop just came out today. Might want to give a spin before returning. I find it fast and smooth so far.

I have the update on my Note 4, still slow and miserable. I think overall I just like stock Android.

Think I'm going to do the HTC One M8 honestly, think it's a good setup basically stock android with a nice skin.

It was an awesome phone for sure! S-off on it is costly to do if you want to really modify anything.

Why costly?

To s-off you have to hse an app that charges $20+ per device to s-off, firewater no longer is supported. And even firewater wasnt guaranteed tobwork, but at least it was free.

Back on an S3 I borrowed from a friend, this thing sucks! Not having tri-band is a real headache. Hopefully tomorrow I can go and get my new phone. Just torn on the Nexus 5 and HTC One M8.

I think the M8 has better battery life.

Yeah it does, and on top of that I don't think Sprint is carrying the Nexus 5 in-store anymore. Hoping I can get over to the store tomorrow after work.

M9 should be out in a couple weeks (likely the 25th), which should be accompanied by a nice price drop on the M8.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
