answer 11
Hot Spot using a Smart Phone is always an additional fee. To prevent it from being an additional fee you would have to root your phone (which is never a guaranteed method of success, and you might brick your phone turning it into a giant leather paperweight) Or you could download an application; to do so:
Turn your Smartphone onto Airplane mode.
Turn off your Smartphone.
Take the SIM Card out of the phone. DO NOT LOSE!
make sure that your Smartphone is still on Airplane mode, but turn on the Wifi. NO GPS OR DATA CONNECTION!!!
then go onto the play store, look up hot spot apps (I personally like the FoxFi app, though it is an expensive alternative).
Download the application.
After the application is downloaded, and installed onto your device, restart your cell phone and turn the airplane mode off. This prevents your phone from recognizing your affiliation with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T- Mobile, who constrict certain applications from showing up.
:) ENJOY!

Question

Will Best Buy Price Match on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

I emailed Best Buy's customer service about the GN3 and the high price tag. It is $70 cheaper on Amazon.com for the same phone. They said that I can ask for a price match in the store. However, the website does not seem to indicate "price match guarantee" on this product. Can you really do a price match on this in the store?

Yes, they will price match for your situation. I purchased note 3 for $349.99., saw they FINALLY lowered price to $199. I thought they had standard 30 policy, BUT they changed it to 15 day return/price match. I was at day 27, oh well, I lose!

Try calling customer service.
I bought my phone at best buy and then a week later I see the phone price was dropped my 30 dollars. I went back and asked for a price match and they gave me my 30 dollars back. I'm not so sure how it would work in your case but you can always ask at the store or call customer service.
Hope this helps.

answer 5
The Note 3 and the Galaxy S 4 are virtually the same phone; however there are some slight differences. The obvious differences are the screen size, Note 3 5.7" and the GS4 5.0", and the fact that the Note 3 has the S Pen stylus. The Note 3 has a slightly faster processor and 3 GB or RAM where the GS4 only has 2 GB. Aditionally, the back of the GS4 is a slick plastic while the back of the Note 3 has a more textured 'leather-look'.

If you are asking about the cost of a new phone. It really depends on when you purchase. Right now, the new line is due out in a few weeks, that should push the price down on the existing phones in the stores right now. They really have only been out a few months, but it's time to upgrade the models. Do your research, compare this year's model to the new one. The best buy will of course, be on last year's model, which if you bought 4 month ago would have been brand new. Some of the new features might only be a case cover, color, or something that you don't find important for the new price. Do you homework, then watch for the sales in the next few weeks That will secure you the best price for the best option for you.

My Sprint upgrade at Best Buy was $199.00 the original upgrade price was $349.00. I've seen it now for $99.00 upgrade. The Samsung new Note 4 is coming out in September that's why the Note 3 is on sale. Have looked at the Note 4 specs, to me the Note 3 on sale was a better deal. It is high end, screen 5.7" 1920x1080 res, 3 Gig Ram, 32 Gig storage. Put it in a case to protect it, add a screen protector, add micro SD card (I used 32 Gig) and you are good to go.

It depends on what phone your getting, the new Galaxy 5 will cost you $200 with Sprint, minus any trade-in fee's or promotions that best buy is running. I say get your phone best buy and not from sprint. Their protection plans a way better and there is no deductible.

You will pay the contract price instead of full retail which can be around $600-$900 retail gives you a subsidized pricing or around $100-300 while on contract you pay your bill while paying off the rest of the devices price which is part of the bill of an added $25-30
