    Yes, this is true. But considering every big Phone News site is saying this, I think it's pretty legit.

    shaggykid, it's true my buddy just called me and he works at a VZW Zone and he never says anything to me unless it's official. He's batting .1000, so if he were to say zombies were attacking the planet I'd have to believe him.

    Do we think this will drop in price some after Christmas?
    As long as I have waited for it, I can wait another 2 weeks if it means $50 or $100 savings.
    What do we think?
