My first promotional phone...I was about a month and a half away from being eligible for promo pricing, and they had no problem making it happen.
I am currently with AT&T. My advice - Don't do it!!!
First off, don't switch because of one sales rep that was a ***** to you, maybe she just broke up with her girlfriend! I could understand if, like AT&T, the whole company treated you that way.
Second, I have 15 months remaining on my contract, and I'm still considering switching to VZW. The price I'd have to pay AT&T for leaving is much less than what I'd have to pay over the next 15 months for staying!
Everything you've heard about dropped calls is true. Besides, I bought an HTC Fuze in January for almost $400, 3 months later the charging pin cracked. They told me it wasn't covered under the warranty. In May I lost it over in Europe. AT&T offered to sell me a REFURBISHED unit - for $50 more than they sold me the new one!!! (Picked one up on EBay). Plus they were going to extend my 2 yr contract even longer.
It's obvious that they have no interest in keeping me as a customer, even though I've been with them for about 13 years (under Cingular).
Besides, you're trying to make the same mistake you made with the Storm. Don't be in such a hurry to get a Droid. Wait a month or two until REAL user reports come in - from actual customers!
My only pause in going to VZW (besides paying the ETF to AT&T) is VZW is upping the ETF to $350 on the 15th, and I am spoiled by being able to talk and use the Internet at the same time. I hear that is not possible on VZW with ANY phone.
Went into this store today to purchase the Droid and have Verizon be my new carrier (I have T-mobile now, contract is up). I stood around waiting for someone to even ask me if I needed help. Waited 15 MINUTES and left. This is by far the WORST customer service I have experienced anywhere, by far from a wireless carrier. I know this is case by case, but it's still unacceptable. I may take a look at at&t now.
Needless to say my first impression of Verizon is garbage. I did get to play with the Droid and Eris at Best Buy down the road and in all honesty, I like the Eris more. I am sold on HTC phones now. If the rumors of the HTC Passion is true, I will jump on that 100% without question.
I was in contract with Cingular? when AT&T took over. A full year of paying AT&T and unable to use the phone. Called almost weekly to complain. Date contract up I called to cancel. Rep states "you haven't been switched over to the AT&T network, we can do that now".
I've been drooling over the iPhone since it came out but didn't want to experience the pain associated with AT&T again.
Ordered my Droid & will dump T-Mobile soon as my contract is up in December. I was hoping T-Mobile would get better phones.
Hopefully Verizon will treat me nice. They play nice they may get my Cable and Internet business also.
199 X 3 Droids thru my employers VZ Corporate Rep. + 1 phone doc for the Mrs.. $693.93 Total.
Seems he shoulda' trimmed the price alittle after reading this thread.
