    Just looked online... showing up as $199.99 with a two-year agreement online - before any NE2 discounts.

    It is forcing me into insurance or an extended warranty though.

    I ordered mine via Customer Service about an hour ago and it was $249.99 with 2 year agreement. My guess is that you also had a New Every 2 of $50 that is applying to your purchase.

    Ordered mine this morning @ $249.99 also.

    Funny side note, went into a VZW store last night, asked how much it would be with an annual upgrade (my NE2 is still 6 months out), he said it will be $20 more than the 2 year contract price. Sounded weird but I just smiled and nodded. Apparently, he was wrong. Do the reps in these stores have any accurate information?

    Right. My price appeared as $199. I chatted with the online help "lady" and asked if I could expect the $199 price at the store and she said no, online discount only. Also she said all orders before 4:30pm receive free next-day shipping since the Promo code for it is rejected as expired. Do NOT want to wait until tomorrow but $50 forces my hand. I wouldn't wait if it was $10 or $20.

    Ordered mine this morning from vzw.com:

    Equipment Upgrade:
    1 HTC ThunderBolt $219.99

    I also selected the 'Next Day delivery' and the promo code was rejected. I sure hope I'm not charged $8.99 for something that is being heavily advertised as being FREE.

    ...excited to get my very first Smartphone tomorrow!!

    Yes, I am assuming it was my ne2. I had my upgrade since December.

    When I looked at my option to upgrade, the TB came up as 199.00 for two years. It switched to the one year plan, and it showed 229.00 dollars. I was kinda surprised because I thought 1 year plan usually add like 70.00 bucks more to the 2 year plan.

    Yes, I brought it through verizon wireless. Here is the start of the email...

    I ordered mine this morning. $199 with the NE2. I talked to the chat girl about the promo code not working, and they said it was having some issues. But she took my info down and will credit my verizon account the $9 bucks that it charged me for over night. I ended up getting the case and car charger , and it all came up to about $230 ... CANT WAIT TO get that mo trucker tomorrow!!! :icon_ banana:

    Never fails with VZW reps to all have a different story. You have seen that I reported that my chat girl said just to let it default to 2-day and all orders today are automatically going next-day for free. You can never just rest and trust that they know what they are doing.

    Edit: I decided to check on the first story I received about all orders automatically being shipped overnight and was told "don't believe it". They couldn't tell me if it would be friday or monday and couldn't do anything to change my order. Needless to say: "Duh! Losing!"

    Since I won't be home to accept a monday package I found a rep that would put through a second order with free overnight and using the online discount and waiving restocking, etc to try and make it right. If I had know then what I know now I would have maybe paid the $50 difference to get it in a store or gladly paid the $8.99 to be sure of overnight. How VZW stays in business with their support is a mystery. Oh yeah, it's the network!

    I paid $249 to upgrade with a one year contract. I also supposedly got 20% a month off of the monthly data pricing but that didn't print out on my confirmation statement.

    You can't use your NE2 with a 1 year contract. I'm betting you have an employee discount. That's the same price I got for 1-year due to my discount. If you got a 2-year contract it would have been $199.99 - $50NE2 = $149.99

    Employee discount.

    Edit: I think it's actually "Corporate Discount." We don't work for Verizon, we work for companies that get discounted service through Verizon.

    It's a corporate discount through your employer. Many employers have deals with the telecoms to provide discounts for their employees. My employer lets me get a 22% discount on voice and data plans, and I think accessories also. Plus, as pointed out to me earlier, a $50 discount on this phone.

    Check with Verizon to see if your employer participates. If they do, you'll need to provide proof to Verizon that you work for them. Then Verizon will set your account up with this corporate discount. Then when you order eligible products and services, you'll automatically get the discount.

    When I logged into my account this morning, it showed that I was eligible for the $199.99 price. After applying my $100 NE2, my final price was $99.99 plus tax. I was also able to get a $30 data plan for $23.39 after the discount.
