    I'm looking to purchase a Motorola Droid online because they are generally cheaper than the instore prices.

    Where can I find the cheapest Droid with a 1 year verizon plan, not the 2 year plan?

    Thankyou.

    The link connects me to Wirefly.com where the phone is listed at $130 with a 2 year contract.

    I'm looking for a 1 year contract.

    .....not only that but the 'free' phone requires you to be an existing customers, extend your contract for 2 years, and sign up for a $59 and above rate plan. If it looks too good to be true..........

    One year contracts are only available from Verizon directly. None of the third party sellers can do one year contracts.

    I did a one year on my droid. Paid $239 which I guess you get with corp. discount otherwise it would have been $269. No other way to get it cheaper, that I know of, unless you have a NE2 discount which I did not because my line is not the primary.

    Even with the higher initial cost for the phone, I'm going to start purchasing phones with strictly a 1 year plan, rather than 2. Upgrades come up faster and I wouldn't be stuck in this hole wanting a Droid that I can't purchase. This is the way to go IMO.

    even with a 2 year plan you can still upgrade every year there is just a 20.00 dollar early upgrade fee and you get the 2 year prices.

    Yes, I got the $269 deal. Actually paid $369 but they are sending a $100 rebate....don't know if it's in the form of a debit card or mail in thing.

    I have never heard anything like this. Do you have a link from Verizon that explains this? I've tried to upgrade early in the past and have been shot down every time...

    I believe this only applies to the primary line only but yeah, my wife has done this too. I don't think we got the NE2 though...

    correct it only applies to the primary line you can actually upgrade that line every 10 months but you forefit your NE2 discount and have to pay a 20 dollar early upgrade fee but you also get the 2 year prices... ive done this for several years in a row.

    i cant find it online just call customer service they will explain.

    this is exactly how i was able to buy a storm in january but was able to get an early upgrade to the storm in november without having to pay full price.
