    Verizon February 2011 Rebate Details Leak


    Starting tomorrow Verizon will be overhauling the current rebate program and we've been tipped off with new pricing details. With some of the high end android devices falling off of the list completely and other devices having their rebates slashed, it has to make you wonder the reasoning behind this. What better way to achieve a blow-out historic iPhone launch by inflating the cost of all current devices. See the list below for some of the new rebate pricing:

    • HTC Droid Incredible $50.00
    • LG Alley $50.00
    • LG Vortex $50.00
    • Motorola Droid 2 $50.00
    • Motorola Droid $50.00
    • Motorola Droid R2-D2 $50.00
    • Motorola Devour $50.00
    • Samsung Continuum $50.00
    Sometimes , It is what it is !

    certainly backwards alright...

    unfortunately the service aspect is still favorable to Verizon... maybe we can get them to switch that too

    Call me odd but I see all this mix-up as a GOOD thing. Means VZW (and other soon) are moving away from the current screwed up market we have here in the US. Get rid of the rebates now and then the subsidies and contracts will follow. No contracts means the providers will actually have to WORK to keep their customers (i.e. pricing and service). The US is behind the rest of the (modern) world in cell phones (both service, tech and pricing) because of the BS contract model (and fractured technology) that the carriers adopted years ago...

    While I like $200 subsidized phones, I like having freedom of not being locked-in for 2 years a little more. Ironically, I'm a lifetime user of Big Red, but maybe that will change once these changes go into effect.

    Sadly most costumers don't realize that because of the subsidies and contracts we pay far more than our European or Asian counterparts for service (and much worse service at that). If/when they do away with the contracts and actually have to adopt competitive pricing plans we will actually save far more the the subsidized amount in lower monthly payments. It's rather naive that people think they can get a subsidized device w/o paying for it in another way.
