    Is the Verizon Store or online website still the best place to buy the Droid?

    I ended returning my Droid to Best Buy in hopes of getting a better deal. I took it straight to CS. She issued me a cash refund on the price of the phone. She then issued me a credit on the BB gift card. I went over to the mobile section and cancelled. I was told by Verizon CS that the after it was returned that I would be then considered a new customer again.

    So, I ventured out to look for the best deal. I found out that Best Buy, Radio Shack, Newegg, and Sears all belong to Simplexity, which is Wirefly's parent company. Amazon is also is a part of a similar parent company. Simplexity as been known for low balling the price of phones to make money off of large volumes of sales. You have to sign on to a separate 6 month EFT with them to regulate your business practices at Verizon which could cause them to lose money. The other negative (I've read) is that you are not warranted from Motorola on the Droid to take it in for service or replacement during the warranty at the Verizon Store. I knew that it was suspicous when I bought my phone at Best Buy and they did not ask me about insurance. Simplexity uses a different insurance company that charges $50 up front and does't cover everything that the Total Equipment Coverage covers.

    So, when the smoke clears. I can only see one reasonable place to purchase the Droid (for myself) the Verizon Website or the Verizon Store. Are you able to get the instant rebate though either source? Did anyone get free Activation when they ordered that Friday through Sunday of the launch? Has anyone gotten Verizon to credit them the Activation fees? Is there any talk of such a promotion?

    yeah, i dunno about the fine print, could be worth checking out and posting in a separate thread about it if you really know what's going on... i just signed up through wirefly because of their low price and me not giving a hoot about insurance (it's a scam, i say!)...

    you sure there won't be problems signing right back up again? usually companies have some sort of clause against this.

    I was told by a Verizon CS rep who asked (I guess) her supervisor and agreed with what I stated i wanted to do. She was from the retentions dept I believe. Because when I think that when you return the product within 3 days for a refund and terminate service that your contract is history. I'm ordering from the website now, so we'll see how it goes.

    When you order from the Verizon Droid Website as a new customer you automatically get free Overnight Shipping right?

    When I finished my online order for the Droid as a new customer from the Verizon Droid site, it said my order would be delivered in 2-5 days.

    I read an article from a writer a Phonedog.com that stated that he would buy a new phone, put $50 in to a drawer, and add $5 a month to it for his own insurance plan.

    The Verizon Online Store CS did confirm with me that they will be shipping my Droid by free overnight shipping, as this is standard I take it.
