      Answer

      The $30 per month is on the full cost of $749 (or whatever the exact is), not on the sale price. The promo discount will take the monthly cost down to the $17.50, provided you want them to apply the $300 to your phone cost with Verizon. The $300 is actually on a BBY gift card, so you could also do a $30/month payment with Verizon and use the $300 in Best Buy for other stuff. This is going off of exactly what I just did upgrading my Galaxy S6 to the Galaxy S8.

      Answer

      You simply go into Best Buy and at the door just let them know you're looking to get an s8 for verizon. The mobile department will take care of everything for you. They will activate the phone and will be able to transfer contacts,photos, and videos from the previous phone to the new one.

            Depends on your carrier. I know Verizon charges 30 dollars per activation of new phones. Not sure about the rest.

              Answer

              Yes and no. If you purchase directly in full through a best buy charge account. Then you will owe just best buy the full retail of the phone. And no if you are attempting to get the trade In promo with Verizon. You would need to trade in your device and that will give you a monthly bill credit to help get your retail price down in turn you will pay Verizon monthly cost of the purchase at best buy.

              It will be ready to use! You can bring your old device to a Verizon store and have all of your Contacts, messages and all data transferred to your new Samsung for no extra charge.

              Answer

              You can pay your phone off early. That is what I did with my Galaxy S7. You just pay the remaining balance that you owe to the carrier. Since you have already paid for part of the phone, you do not pay the full retail amount.

              Yes all of Verizon smartphones these days are unlocked and world phones. That's why it has a U on the end of the model #. People need to know what they are talking about before answering. Cause people that said no are very incorrect.
