    Help On Buying a Droid X

    I purchased my Droid the day it came out in November, and I realllyyy want a Droid X (just like everyone else lol). I would like to buy it through Best Buy, but I have a few questions first.

    Will I have to pay FULL price because my contract hasn't expired??
    If so then no Droid X for me

    Whats up with the Pre-Order??

    How do I know if I qualify for an early upgrade??

    Would I be able to sort of "trade in" my Droid as money towards it?? Sounds like a no as it cant be done through Verizon either lol.

    Help is greatly appreciated,

    There are quite a few threads on this already, but if your contract end date is within 2010, any day in 2010 at all, you can upgrade to the X at the $199 price ($299 at VZW with $100 mail-in rebate). I think this may only be at Verizon though.

    Some people like myself have called VZW customer service since our contracts end shortly after 2011 starts, and have gotten them to move up our upgrade dates so that we can get the phone for the lower price.

    Also, if your upgrade price is anytime soon, you can upgrade cheap with that obviously.

    But at Best Buy, I think they will only be giving the $199 price to people who already have an upgrade opportunity or are becoming a new customer. I don't think (not sure) they go by that whole contract end date special thing like VZW.

    Well it looks like I'll be paying some extra $ for mine, being that I got my Droid in November 2009.........

    Thanks for the reply,

    Np, but I would try calling up VZW CS as many times as you need to and plead with them to move up your upgrade date to be eligible for the lower price at BB. Just mention that you want to re-sign for 2 more years/buy the X next week and they might be able to change your upgrade date like they did for me.

    Can't hurt to try.

    Took me 4 phone calls to VZW, but I got my eligibility date moved up 6 days so that I could get the phone from Best Buy. I know if I don't get it on the 15th that f'er is gonna be on hella back order. Don't give up if they tell you they can't, because they can. You just have to talk to the right cust service rep who happens to have a good supervisor on duty that night. Matter of fact it wasn't just 6 days they made me eligible as of the day I called (yesterday)

    When I upgraded to my Droid, it was late Feb/early Mar. My original upgrade date wasnt until mid May if I remember right. Just called up Verizon customer service, told them my P.O.S. Glyde was getting almost unusable, and they moved my upgrade date up several months. First call. Wasnt a big deal.

    Its not gonna be on back order man. They might sell out, but this phone doesn't have an anoled screen, like the incredible, i think they already learned they're lesson. IF they do sell out, and most likely will, youll be able to get the phone in a day or two. Patience!

    I dont remember the original droid selling out. Is the Hype for the X bigger?

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    No, people are just paranoid due to HTC issues (even though as stated before, those issues don't apply to this phone).
