    I think they are trying to sell as many as possible before 4g lte prices go up.

    Now that is a interesting angle to play with. Get a million Thunderbolt users up and running so you get the best sampling for a tiered data pricing structure. The question still is why is VZW not following the online retailers to at least the $175 price point? But your theory has implications.
    Facts are the very first casuality of bad information.

    Well at least it makes the extended battery cost less of a factor when buying now... Thats a plus.

    I got concerned about the possibility of the data plan price going up so I bought it, though my price ended up being $174.99.

    Hopefully I'll find someone to sell it to later when the dual core phones come out.

    That's what I discovered yesterday. If you consider that they've cut my NE2 discount from $50 to $30, and done away with it completely in the future, VZW ain't givin' me no warm fuzzies.
    Yes, I can hear you now.

    If I was to buy a thunderbolt out of contract, would I be able to go to verizon and change my plan to a 4g plan even though I didnt use my upgrade?

    It's easy to jump on Skullone due to the fact that he's an iPhone user in the midst of android users. It would be like being a republican at the democratic national convention. Right or wrong, he'd never get a word in.

    I feel I'm too ignorant of the sales process to properly speculate. What doesn't make sense to me is going through a 3rd party that leads you to sign a two year contract with a service provider. How does it work? Does VZ get the subscription while the retailer gets the money for the phone?

    What about those of us on contract already, who are nearing their contracts end or merely have an upgrade available to them? Would we ever be able to go through a cheaper 3rd party like this?

    The good news for me is, I am a very educated Android user and programmer


    Amazon collects two spiffs. One from the cell phone maker and one from the cellular provider. The terms are pre-negotiated before each phone gets released to the public. At present I don't believe anyone has ever leaked the terms of the spiffs. Which is a shame, because I believe it would be rather interesting information to have.

    If I knew that my service contract wouldn't get muddied up, I wouldn't mind buying from Amazon to save the $$$, but the online reviews I've read about Wirefly make me pretty uncomfortable.
    Yes, I can hear you now.
