    Well, according to a Verizon employee the Droid Turbo will be basically "free" this weekend.

    Verizon will have the Turbo for $99 with a 2 year contract - and is still offering the $100 smartphone trade-in on the Turbo...

    Which effectively makes the Turbo "free".

    I wonder why such a new phone would be given away for "free".

    Is it because of the negative comments that seem to be prevalent?

    If I could get one for free.. You can bet I'd get it.. I paid full retail.. No discount or anything off.... It's still worth it. I love this phone.. It has a few tiny issues.. An update will fix those, I think.

    I think it's just Verizon's way of moving inventory and increasing recognition / advertising for the phone. They have all kinds of sales all year long, but this weekend is one of the big "sale" weekends, so they have to keep up with Best Buy, Amazon, AT&T, etc, etc. I agree with @94lt1, if you can grab a great phone like the Turbo for basically free...that's a great deal! I'm not sure about the negative comments, most all reviews I have read have been very positive.

    So it's "free" on contract ... any idea how much for full retail? Gotta keep my grandfathered unlimited data.

    Full retail is still $599.99 for the 32GB varieties and $649.99 for the 64GB in Ballistic Nylon. You do still have the $100 trade-in so that takes you to the $500 and $550 price ranges.

    I don't expect any discount for the phone off-contract yet.

    The 100 $ trade in explicitly states that it is only for contract and edge customers. YMMV from one store to another but the official policy is as stated.

    I'm looking to upgrade to the Turbo. I'm looking at the Verizon site, and the $99 price isn't listed as a holiday deal or sale. Should I just assume that it's going back to 200 after this weekend?
