    They look like the same phone, I pasted the specs below. Am I missing something? The Best Buy says not for Verizon, but seems to have the same specs as the Verizon compatible one at GoTalk. I'm confused. (I've been using a Classic *forever* and need to replace it fast, wondering if there is any reason to spend $200 more - I am a Verizon customer)

    This is the one @ Best Buy, it's $299:

    Data Transmission Type
    GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+, LTE, VoLTE, FDD-LTE, TDD-LTE
    Wireless Compatibility
    Bluetooth, Wireless A, Wireless B, Wireless G, Wireless N, Wireless AC
    Network Type
    GSM
    4G LTE Band
    1, 12, 13, 17, 2, 20, 28, 29, 3, 38, 39, 4, 40, 41, 5, 66, 7, 8
    GSM 2G Frequency
    1800, 1900, 850, 900
    GSM 3G Frequency
    2100, 1900, 1700, 850, 800, 900

    This is the one from GoTalk, it's $499:

    FD-LTE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 20, 28, 29, 66 (2100/1900/1800/1700/850/2600/900/700/700/700/800/700/700/AWS-3) TD-LTE 38, 39, 40, 41 (2600/1900/2300/2500) HSPA+ 1, 2, 4, 5/6, 8 (2100/1900/1700/850/900 MHz) Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    Thank you for your help.

    I’d trust BestBuy as they’re a known entity as large retailer with established return system in place if necessary. The lower price is just added kicker

    Best Buy's description on their website causes some uncertainty regarding Verizon compatibility. However, the actual box (just received mine) says clearly "Compatible on all GSM carriers in the USA as well as Verizon."

    I bought this past week from Best Buy - it's the compatible one with Verizon (100-5) - the champagne one states it but not the slate ..... But so is the slate

    I've bought many protection plans through Best Buy including my LEs do you have questions?

    Always read the BestBuy terms carefully as far as returns go. They tend to have very tight support windows. I almost bought a TV that I wanted that they had in stock until I saw the 15 DAY return policy. I ordered it ship-to-store from WalMart instead and waited a few days, but got a reasonable warranty from them.

    I agree and I was comparing to GoTalk which corporate address is nothing but a virtual office location.

    Thanks - I got the basic plan. My LE should be here tomorrow. (I have to find a way to break it to my trusty Classic)

    To answer the question for others though, they ARE the same devices.
