    According to this Sam Mobile article, Best Buy might be selling the Note 3 unlocked on Sep 19th. However that pricing, and the model can't be correct. I hope they match AT&T's off contract pricing, because I know they're usually more expensive for some reason.

    I'm hoping they get the carrier branded versions though so it works on AT&T. However it can't possibly be $1000. I'm hoping for the same price as the AT&T unlocked version. :cool:

    AT&T phone center stores have said to me they cannot sell off contract on any of what they carry. How will you get this off contract from them?

    They lied to you. They want to sell you a contract so they can make a commission

    If u ask. ATT customer service (with supervisor) approval can get u a note 3 for $199 instead of $299. I just called today. Although they can sell it till release date. $199 on contract.

    Just be straight up with them. As long as you haven't asked for any "favors" from ATT in past 6 months. ATT customer service will work with you.

    I simply called and said "I want the note 3, can you give it to me for $199". She said she had to ask her supervisor. She was good to go at $199. But she can't order on her screen yet until its actually released. So I will call back after its released to get it. It's already noted on my account.

    No biggie. ATT would rather have u get android or windows phone. Since we all know ATT pays much less for high end android and windows phones than their msrp prices reflect.

    BestBuy is now officially price matching contract/off contract phones again. It is restricted to B&M only though.

    Brick and Mortar. Basically anything that isn't an online only retailer.

    I'm hoping there is LTE enabled on the exynos 5 soc as its been posted online that it supports all the LTE bands but not unlocked.

    I'll be the first one to try my Sim at my local best buy when they get them

    Oh OK, easy enough. There's a Best Buy within minutes from me that has a Samsung Experience shop inside. I might pay them a visit today, thanks!
