First and foremost, sorry for flooding your boards, but I figured I should post details on the deal I got for the Nexus.
AmazonWireless: Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G Android Phone (Verizon Wireless) got the phone for $99 through Amazon wireless by signing up for a new contract (I'm financially stable and my dad thought it would be a wonderful gift to himself if he kicked me off his phone bill ). The phone also costs $99 if you add a new line to an existing account or if you create a new family account.
I really like the amazon wireless system because they can mail to more addresses than Verizon can. At the same time, they have a 250$ reduction on phones (smartphone only?) bought through their service. My order includes a free gift of a USB and car charger. I don't know how many potential buyers will see this thread, but if you have friends on the fence about changing their service, refer them to this great service. I remember the Droid RAZR MAXX had a similar deal not that long ago, but it's sold out and there are no promises of it ever being on sale again with amazon wireless.
