    how come verizion charges 299.00 for razr maxx hd and amazon only charges 199.00 for the same upgrade.
    the only difference is the phone is on back order from amazon.

    Because Verizon is money hungry. It's literally as simple as that.

    There is an additional ETF that Amazon will charge if you terminate service.

    If you are due for an upgrade, go with amazon. You've waited this long, right? Lol

    i found this phone all over not just amazon,i am ordering it from one of those online stores,no way am i spending 299.00 plus tax and upgrade fee 0f 30.00 putting it close to 350.00.
    is there any draw back to these online stores i mean do they leave the 16gb card in and everything .

    They are priced low because they (amazon, let's talk, etc) get money for every new/upgrade contract they do. So in return they pass it on to the customer. That's why people who sign new contacts get phones at lower prices then if you just renew.

    It's a no brainer,i think. all i have to do is abide by the contract from the store i bought the phone from,it's the same as verizion.

    If you go to places like new egg ect... You can also pay for extended warranty up front for a year at a time. No deductible and costs less than 70 for a year.

    What are the chances of me getting the VZW store to match the Amazon price? Slim to none I'm guessing.
