I just spent the past week dealing with Verizon sales, support and supervisory personnel on the phone and in also in person at 3 different corporate stores and throw in two representatives from Samsung support as well... all trying to buy an S21 Ultra 512gb phone from Verizon...

The long and the short of it is that it's not available from Verizon and likely won't be anytime soon. If you're a Verizon customer and you want that phone, you'll have to order it from Samsung directly.

The story I got from one of the Samsung reps was that Samsung isn't offering the 512gb version as a locked device and Verizon isn't going to be ordering unlocked phones for sale in their stores.

I'm surprised this has not been more of a story since basically the largest cell phone provider in the U.S. is not going to be offering Samsung's top-of-the-line phone.

I'm open to more information on this even though I've just gone ahead and ordered an unlocked phone from Samsung. I just don't get it!
