    According to multiple sources, Dell is currently offering a great (too good?) deal on a new Incredible, Droid X, or Droid Pro:

    With a new activation:
    - the phone is free
    - they waive the activation fee
    - shipping is free
    - they'll even throw in a $25 gift card.

    I haven't found a catch yet... so, Happy Holidays! Check it out.

    I called Verizon...they stated I was eligible for an upgrade. I went to this site and almost clicked the pay button. I decided to check to see if I was eligible through the website itself. Glad I checked, In Dell's eyes, I was not eligible for an upgrade....I would have been charged for the full amount. Make sure you all do your homework before clicking the pay button!

    seeing the X and Pro for free, plus gift card, is really more the "news", b/c you're right - the Inc has been free in various places for awhile now

    The homework on this is the posting.

    It says clearly that it is for new activations not for upgrades.

    Clearly dell gets something out of the deal as it would bring new customers making Verizon more money then those who already have Verizon as a provider.

    Wish my wife's AT&T contract was up already. Ug, over a year left. I'd get her a DroidX.

    This goes to show you that our DX's are old tech now. Well soon will be. The new standard will be dual processors, 1080p and front facing cams. I still love my DX.

    Crazy isn't it? impossible to keep up with this stuff... sometimes makes me want to hit "the off switch" with all of it. Problem is I want to stay on top of technology so my kids won't get ahead of me as they get older and into this stuff... (they're still pretty young)

    Yeah, I never get any good deals on this stuff. I'm an upgrade (adds extra money) on a secondary line (adds lots of extra money) Currently it'd cost $129.99 through them. Luckily I got it when it was $74.99 through them. Cheapest I could find for my situation

    I don't like Dell. I wouldn't take it from them if they gave it to me. YMMV and probably will.

    I've thought about that too...lol! But I'm hooked on this stuff too. So much that I'm currently working on getting my A+ cert and so on.

    Wish you the best on that. The technology generation is certainly living up to their name.
