Galaxy Note 8 rumors, specs, thoughts, etc


Recommended Posts

I just checked the status of it and found out they left it at my garage 40 minutes ago. So much for them absolutely requiring a signature.

I got mine at about 8:30 this morning. I had to actually call sprint because neither mine or wife would activate on the phone nor on website.

 

I only know what the manager of ups told me about the sprint contract requiring a signature... whether or not the drivers abide by it. ..... thats on them.

Non combustion is an upsell feature.  Samsung charges a premium.   AJ

It works on my Note8

Instead of setting at your front door waiting for your Notes, I stopped the UPS truck down the street and turned the inventory of the truck inside out.   Somehow I must have missed the package I was looking for.  I slowed down the entire load, but you got lucky that I could not find the package.

I have about an hour before I leave to my concert, but as I check out the phone, I am surprise that it weighs less than the S8+ when every review says otherwise.

My one complaint so far is just the amount of bloatware that came with it.  Especially, the Sprint and Samsung apps you could not disable or uninstall.

Could try Package Disabler Pro to disable those apps.

Did you order from Sprint or Samsung. I ordered from Samsung directly to avoid carrier bloat. I hope it works out that way for me.

Did you order the Sprint version or the unlocked version from Samsung??

I ordered directly from Sprint.  They gave me a a big discount offer on the phone so I went that way.

@Deval has one, not sure if username linking works on the forum

How did you get the discount? They are not offering me any discount on the phone. I just paid off my phone few weeks back so thought they would give me discount offers but was wrong.

I paid my Note 4 off back in March or May.  They just sent me an email offering a monthly credit if I pre-ordered.  Not as good as the half-off deal for new lines, but it was almost 30%.  I'll wind up paying about the same as I did for my Note 4.

I got an email saying I was eligible got 50% off on all my lines for a Note 8. I was told it's basically given if Sprint thinks you're a risk for churn, or if you're a long time customer.

I've always wondered about sprint's retention arm. I've been with sprint since 2000 and don't receive any news about credits or deals. Then again, I don't have much to complain about so I rarely call.

I never call them either. I'm guessing they look at the areas you frequent as well. 3 of the 4 lines live at a location that needs an airave, and my line needs the magic box for home. So I suspect they take that into consideration. If you live in a poorly covered area you're more likely to get retention offers.

 

Also, all the lines were out of lease.

I love the DeX unit. Use it daily on both my S8 and Note8

    • Good point re: Dish being interested. They could ask for divestiture of Family Mobile and SIMple Mobile brands, since both use T-Mobile exclusively, and swapping them over would minimize the impact to those subscribers, while providing Dish an even larger customer base. I'm sure T-Mobile gives Dish a better deal than they do Tracfone, as not only does Dish have a larger subscriber base (Boost is larger than Tracfone's entire non-VZW customer base), but they negotiated their MVNO agreement when T-Mobile had to get the deal done to merge. Dish could push for divesting T-Mobile based customers from the other multi-carrier brands (Tracfone proper, Straight Talk, Net10, SafeLink), but splitting out the brands might be more trouble than it's worth at that point. Moving an entire brand over would be simpler, even if those brands are sitting on a unified backend on Tracfone's side. Dish will have a billing system of their own to migrate folks to anyway.
    • Well, we're into the new billing cycle and Ting let us keep the 20GB per line plan somehow. Pure Talk SIMs are coming, but they'll sit around unactivated until this plan stops...which might be the end of the month, or might be the end of *this* billing cycle...or ??? We'll definitely hop over to AT&T (via Pure Talk) between now and a couple months from now, but plan is to hop back when new plans on Ting come out, assuming either we can get those plans on Sprint's network or T-Mobile cleans up their act in 78624 (putting B66 on the sites that are currently PCS-only would probably do the trick without needing to take spectrum away from anything else...and they could add 600 for good measure...both are on exactly one site there).
    • It's awesome!!! Currently at 67% at 7:46 PM and it estimates will last until 4:30 PM tomorrow. Sent from my Pixel 4a using Tapatalk
    • That phone doesn't have band 71. Picking it up for Sprint/TMo would be a bad idea.
    • I'm not sure it tells you anything about T-Mobile.  You're not roaming at that moment; that's still the Sprint network.  The oddball GCI is because for Sprint sites where the GCI had a value already used by T-Mobile's existing sites, they very quickly shoved the Sprint GCIs off to other values that T-Mobile doesn't use instead.  T-Mobile doesn't really follow very many patterns. - Trip
