I know this is a hot topic as of late since Verizon announced they will be doing away with the UD - unlimited data. Here is my dilemma. My wife and I both have the Droid X and we love them. We are currently under contract until early december, and have the UD. We will get an upgrade discount in mid August, but I fear that is too late for the UD and will not be grandfathered in after that is announced. So we were thinking about upgrading to the razr maxx, but the best price I was able to get offered was $199 each. I've read that some people are getting them anywhere from $99 down to free. Some are claiming that they are only 6 months into their current contract and they have an OG droid and they are getting the maxx for free??? As much as I would like to upgrade our phones, I cannot afford $400-$500 just for the sake of keeping UD.
So, if we were to upgrade to the bionic (which I believe is free), would this be a wise choice? If we got them for free, can we activate them, then deactivate them and reactivate our Dx's and keep the bionics in the event that our Dx's fail? (This would keep our UD safe for at least another 2 years). Then, if one of the Dx's fail, could we simply call and reactivate the bionic and still be under the UD plan, or is this not workable?
As much as I want the maxx, I cannot figure out how some people are randomly selected to receive a free upgrade when they have a year and a half left in their contract and we have 6 months left and they won't budge? Any tricks to get the maxx dirt cheap or is this not possible?
Sorry for the rambling. Thanks
