    Downside to getting Droid @ Bestbuy?

    OK so I'm about ready to go over and grab one of these @ BB.

    I'm a little woried though. I've only ever gone through Verizon. Is there a downside to going through BB? I love the service I get from Verizon if there is a problem with a phone. They usually send stuff overnight, are more than accomodating etc.

    I kinda feel like I'm screwing them over a bit. But hey, 25% off is nothing to scoff at.

    What do you think?

    I bought mine at Best Buy and was worried about the same thing. They told me it made no difference where you buy it, they all use the same computers.

    They also price matched to sears for me $149.99.

    I got mine at Best Buy and had no problems whatsoever. They even matched Walmart's price of $188. If you have any problems with the phone you can still take it to a Verizon store.

    You should have nothing to worry about, I purchased two iPhones from them last year with no problems. I have always liked the service I get from Best Buy, the girl that helped me was actually really knowledgeable on smart phones in general.

    so if I have a line that's eligible for an upgrade, the best I can get from BB is $180. Then $15 in tax.

    So I go to BB and get it for $195 or VZ for $199?

    Does this sound about right?

    is the $15 in tax your estimate or best buy's? cause i was told you have to pay tax on the full price ($599) not the upgrade price ( $199 ).
