I purchased myn at a local Verizon affiliate, and they charged me $350 for the phone (plus a $100 rebate) instead of $299 then rebate. I asked them why I was being charged $50 more then the website and Verizon and they vaguely said they charge more then the website and they have other activation fees.
I was kinda confused but couldn't negotiate because, well there was a line of people for the phone and others calling...and this was the last phone...possibly in the region.
So far I am really happy with the phone, but that $50 kinda bugs me. If I order it online, do pay $199 or there are other fees that bring it closer to $250?
I have one more day to return it to avoid a restocking fee, but overall the phone is awesome.
