I'm thinking about getting a 1 year contract with the DINC as opposed to a 2 year. On Verizon.com, the 1 year price is about $270. Are third party vendors permitted to sell 1 year contracts?

They usually have cheaper prices (Amazon.com 2-year for DINC is $150 as opposed to $200 on Verizon.com) so I was hoping to use that as leverage in negotiating when I go into the corporate store tomorrow.

Does anyone have any history with 1-year contracts with the DINC or any other insight on the situation?
