    Guess what?!?!?!

    I just found out some great news at work (best buy mobile) today! The Droid is going to be at $99 (no mail-in rebate) till near the end of March at Best Buy Mobile just thought I would share with everyone.

    Hm.. Let's see...

    -Easy to return if something goes wrong - No
    -Free contact transfer- No
    -Someone to talk to in person about the phone- No
    -Walk out with it active the day you buy it- No
    -Able to get all your accessories all at once- No
    -Someone to help you set up the phone- No
    -Someone to be there when you have questions later- No

    Seems like I would pay the extra $50 just for that list alone...

    doesnt matter where you buy it you can return it to verizon
    -Free contact transfer- No
    dont need with google sync
    -Someone to talk to in person about the phone- No
    lol most of the reps dont know much
    -Walk out with it active the day you buy it- No
    phone activation just as easy
    -Able to get all your accessories all at once- No
    ill give you this one
    -Someone to help you set up the phone- No
    lol again verizon reps dont do this anyways, anything past a contact transfer and your on your own.
    -Someone to be there when you have questions later- No
    can always call or goto a verizon store.

    Seems like I would pay the extra $50 just for that list alone...

    Sears is better then best buy.... lol and half the price.

    As for accessories, anyone buying them at best buy is wasting money, you can get them much cheaper online.

    No you can't just return it to a Verizon store, trust me we have had customers try
    -Free contact transfer- No
    dont need with google sync
    Verizon will charge you $10, and not everyone knows how to set up the Google Sync
    -Someone to talk to in person about the phone- No
    lol most of the reps dont know much
    I beg to differ for Best Buy Mobile Reps
    -Walk out with it active the day you buy it- No
    phone activation just as easy
    Not as easy for all situations, what about ESN changes, account maintenance, getting things started. (remember this is all for someone that doesn't already have a Droid) Not to mention I wouldn't want to wait 3-4 business days for this phone.
    -Able to get all your accessories all at once- No
    ill give you this one
    -Someone to help you set up the phone- No
    lol again verizon reps dont do this anyways, anything past a contact transfer and your on your own.
    Best Buy Mobile's promise is to WOW (walk out working) we go above and beyond "just" activating your phone. We will actually how you how to use it.
    -Someone to be there when you have questions later- No
    can always call or goto a verizon store.
    And wait in that looong line? I don't think so.

    I'm talking about Best Buy Mobile, NOT the Verizon store... Made my corrections in Blue

    True on the oem part, but I would still want somewhere to take it just in case.. nice to have a backup plan... I've had my share of bad online experiences.

    I got my droid at best buy, and was quite happy with it. My sister got her's there too, the first day it was released, she even pre-orded through them a week prior.
