    Anyone heard/think they'll be special pricing on Moto Droid for Black Friday? My NE2 is Dec 2nd, but I've read you can sometimes get some wiggle room when it's that close. If they have special pricing on Black Friday, I'll try to get in on that, otherwise I'll wait.

    With the newness of the phone and that they are already offering 100 off the price of the phone. I would assume that if they did do anything they would put it back for the same 100 off that was given before, but in my experience with new items, they usually don't show up on black friday.

    Thanks, I assumed it wouldn't get cheaper, but after getting open source on Verizon, I figured anything was possible. :) I'm sure the forums will know before I do, but I'll make sure to spread the word if there is a deal on it.

    Ask if you are eligible for an early upgrade. I have NE2, but they told me in August that I could get an early upgrade on 9/15, exactly one year into my contract. And I re-checked that today and it is correct!

    Well my other problem is I'm moving from SD to NM in January, and would like a local number (and Google voice doesn't have any Las Cruces numbers), so I think I need to order online, have it sent to NM, and then mailed up to me in South Dakota. At any rate, I'm going to have to contact Verizon at some point.

    That is what they call an annual upgrade. You are eligible for an annual upgrade every 10 months. Every 20 months eligible for a NE2 upgrade discount.

    Cool! I'm from El Paso, a hop away from Cruces! If you order it now you can change your number when you get to NM. Just call Verizon when you're there. They charge $15 for it but last time I did it I was not charged.

    Yea, that's the plan now. I called Verizon the other day and they said to wait to change it. They also said I would have to wait until Dec 2 and that they couldn't bump up my NE2. Oh well.

    I almost ended up in El Paso, but then my boyfriend got work in Cruces. I've been craving some good green chili enchiladas and a margarita to wash them down with though.

    I just moved from Alamogordo, NM to Austin this past summer. I use to work in Las Cruces every so often. Very nice area, you'll love it down there. Lots to do, weather is awesome, and there is a nice Verizon store in front of the best computer store in Las Cruces... MDC Computers

    I've been there before, and it's not bad, but I'm a cold weather person. I like my snow and seasons. But, it should only be for 2 years, I can handle that. And I'll have my Droid to make it through!

    ANother SD resident? Are you Military?

    Anyways... I don't think the process should be this complicated for you. You tell them what market you want your phone to be in, then ship it to your current address. Shouldn't be more complicated than that.

    Nope, I'm on the east side, hanging with Jack Rabbit at SDSU. I think I'll go into the store Friday and talk to them...and play with a Droid. Maybe if I drool enough they'll give it to me.

    They won't bump your NE2 credit, but if you want to stomach the credit youc an still get Annual Upgrade pricing at the subsidized 199. Sure you don't get your free money and it is really only 2 months away, but for 2 months of not using my storm I'd suck up the loss...

    I'm a poor POOR college student, I can wait a month to save some money. I've fought it out with my Pearl, and we're back on speaking terms for now, so we'll see.

    Verizon charges $20 to upgrade (early) before your NE2. Best Buy will have The Droid for $149 on Black Friday, and you can reserve one now and pick on Friday, but they are not authorized to upgrade before your NE2, only official Verizon stores can do that :( Its a catch-22.

    If you wait for your NE2, you'll get it for $99. I don't think you'll beat that any other way. I just got mine with my NE2 yesterday. I tried to talk my way into an early NE2 upgrade when they came out, but no one at Verizon would go for it. :( So I did wait 2 weeks and saved $100. Worth it!
