http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1976429 There's a thread about a lot of folks from XDA being able to get the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 for less than the listed $299.99. I got mine for $153 after discount & credit on next bill. It took patience, I had to make over 6 calls to an AT&T CS Rep. I was kind & thoughtful when speaking to all of them. I kept getting turned down or them saying there is no such deal but I kept on trying until I got lucky with the 6th call. David is his name & was kind enough to give me the deal of $270 ($29.99 discount) & a credit of $117 on my next bill with free next day air shipping from UPS. There are other people that were able to get even lower price than I did but basically they had to do the same. Be nice when calling & keep on calling until you get the right CS Rep that will give you the pricing you want. GL if you decide to go this route & it's so much worth. As a previous owner of the GSII, III & Original Note. This is so much better. Best part if that you can go into the Development Forums of XDA to start rooting & modding your phone already. Multi-View is pretty sweet.
