Just received my two note 8 phones and realized that I ordered one unlocked version instead of Verizon branded.


Is there any reason to send it back and exchange for the Verizon branded phone or is the unlocked the same phone just without the Sim card???

Just got my Note 8.
Came with a 256GB SD card!

Anyone else get a 256?
Yes. Got the 256 too!

When you activate it with Verizon do you automatically get added bloatware ?

That's my question. If it does then I won't go through the hassle of returning the unlocked one for an exchange.

The other thing to consider is software updates.  I believe sometimes the carrier version get them before the unlocked.  Otherwise I'd say having an unlocked version is the way to go.

That's what I heard.
Later updates and no WiFi calling.

-I wish Samsung did the double tap to turn the screen off like LG does.
I was thinking the same

I loved that feature when I had the G3

Some Verizon features may not work such as travel pass

Why would travelpass not work??

Don't know why, but I can tell you that my unlocked G4 cannot have travel pass while the Verizon one does. They told me that this sometimes happens with unlocked phones. I needed to reactivate an old device.

My wife has an unlocked S8 with TP on her line.
Never heard of TP being phone dependent. It is plan dependent though, it didn't work on my old unlimited plan.

I have the new plan and it worked once I went to my old device. I guess it is YMMV.
