I just got an email saying my trade-in requirement was not met. Their reason was that my device was not reset, even though I factory resetted it, and I even recorded it when I turned my phone back on briefly before packaging it. 

 

They also sent me two photos of the phone with some hard-board papers with words "Locked," and "Cracked" on it. Yes, my phone is "Locked," because I bought it full price from T-mobile. But they didn't ask me or request for an unlocked phone. 

 

Also, I am beyond mad that they implied my phone was cracked. I've always used screen protector and case, and when I took them off to send in my phone, there weren't even a speckle of dust or scratch. No smudges. It looked brand new. 

 

So, I think Samsung is doing this on purpose to scam us that $550 because they probably will have trouble refurbishing phones and reselling them.

Same thing said I didn't check blacklist oh really bought directly from Samsung also said camera had crack not showing up on my pictures including day of sending in! So I traded in 9+ and won't be doing business again I should have known at my age this was a scam nice way to treat loyal customers my phone was in perfect shape should have stuck with Best Buy won't be dealing Samsung again almost bought a tablet but saved myself on that one.
