    Does anybody know how these offers work with those of us who just purchased one? I'll be within 14 days of just purchasing my Razr... sure wish I'd have known this ahead of time... :frown:

    They will have to honor the offer for you, otherwise you can just cancel the current contract and start over if within the first 14 days.

    If you're purchasing a single phone, Amazon has the 32GB RAZR for $99 right now and the RAZR Maxx for $199 (also, the Rezound for $79 and the GNex for $99).

    Well, I just called VZW to ask about it. Not really sure yet because it felt like I was sort-of getting the run-around... but never-the-less, I was told in the end that its for new customers only, no contract renewals or upgrades. Mine was a contract renewal/upgrade. So, no free phone for me. Kinda sucks though that these companies offer the best promotions to new customers and never anything special for long-term customers, (I've been with them 10+ years). Bummer.

    You can always try to call their customer retention team (the ones who try to get you not to cancel service), but I don't know their direct line. I'm sure Google does, though.

    Well, I didn't know you were an upgrade. Still, Donnie5336 is right. Call 800-922-0204 and ask for customer retention. They will either tell you there is no customer retention division anymore or they'll ask you what you want. Either way, spill your beans. Tell them how upset you are that they are offering 2 for 1 coming and you still have time remaining on your 14 day worry free return policy. Tell them you want to be able to video chat with your wife/husband/lover/friend, and that s/he doesn't have a video phone. Tell them that for what you paid to upgrade, other people are getting two phones. Tell them that it is discrimination against you, a long-standing and good paying customer, and for the new, off the street first-time buyers. Make it clear that with 2 smart phones, you'll need 2 data plans (double-data for $30/month), and that means more revenue for them. Tell them if you are unable to make this work, you are prepared to return the RAZR and drop back to non-data flip-phones.

    If you whine and complain (nicely and politely, mind you - not ignorantly or condescendingly) long enough and with enough heart and soul, they may very well give you some assistance.

    You can also reach the same department from your cell phone with *611.

    Good luck.

    Are you looking at amazonwireless?? they show that price for me, you have to be a new customer or adding a line i believe to get those prices though.
    i canceled my order of 2 maxxes on amazon for this double data and BOGO deal.

    I didn't know there was an Amazon Wireless! Thank you! How does this work? I need a good backup smartphone. I can use my husband's upgrade. I'm assuming I will need that and to extend the contract to use one of these phones. I was considering a used Amazon purchase, to avoid the contract extension, and using my husband's upgrade.
