    I apologize for the ignorance in this very basic question, but I have never purchased a phone from a third party retailer before and have done all of my upgrades through a verizon store.

    Is there any real difference in getting an upgrade through walmart vs a verizon store? Returns, the 30 day policy, etc? And even if you deal with a retailer like walmart for the original purchase do you still use verizon stores for all following issues/questions down the road?

    I was waiting for a DX price drop (since similar new phones seem to be farther off than originally thought) and if I can get it at walmart for $80 and then even get a $100 gift card the offer will be tough to pass up.

    Thanks in advance for any help guys.

    Whoa, slow down there turbo.

    While the Merge has a rated clock speed of ONLY 800 Mhz, it is a newer chipset, is generally more efficient, and gets slightly better benchmarks than the DX.

    Basically, it's the same phone as the HTC G2, which is making many owners quite happy right now.

    People are overclocking the G2 as high as 1.9 Ghz!

    It also has a GPU.

    It doesn't have a locked Bootloader.

    Overclock + Cyanogen, or whichever ROM you wish?

    That said, I'm looking to get a DX, at least for my Wife, and if I can't get my hands on a Merge for a reasonable price, then I will likely get a DX also, I really like the extra large screen.

    One diff was that Best Buy (3rd party) could not port my corporate-owned phone number in store from ATT. I had to drive over to the VZ store and pay more for the phone to get Verizon to do this.

    Usually 3rd party sellers give you all rebates and discounts upfront, no waiting for Verizon's gift card.

    Notice it says NEW 2 year contract. Sometimes when you are already on VZW and just doing a device upgrade the price will be much higher.
    Wirefly.com recently offered the Droid 2 for only $40 on new contract, but since I was already on contract with them and only upgrading my wife's device it was $80 instead.

    For those curious, the above poster is correct. I thought I had looked for this specifically before but must have misread the additional information. The DX is 149.99 at Walmart if you are only upgrading and not a new customer. The gift card still applies and the net total would be 49.99. Still a good price but not as good as insinuated earlier.

    Cxan, that is exactly what I saw earlier today when I originally checked Walmart's site. However, after deadpool posted I decided to go back and double check. I have been unable to reproduce the original price of making $10 which is what you have shown. Everytime I attempt to select the phone as an upgrade I now receive the following:

    The difference seems to be the lack of a 60.00 LetsTalk discount and I am not sure where that comes from.

    Interesting, perhaps I should pull the trigger on one before they change it!

    DX

    I did some checking last night for the walmart deal. I was clicking on some random links throughout the DX deal and was able to get the $10 credit to come up. Also noticed that Walmart recognizes an upgrade as long as you are 10 months into your 1 year contract or 20 months into your 2-year contract. I'm 3 months away from upgrading...DX here I come!!!
