    The Droid X has been a top seller for Verizon and Motorola for some time now. In fact, it seemed that they've only recently been able to keep up with demand. But, this is the technology world and things move faster then the speed of light... so with that said, the price is already starting to come down. Costco is offering the Droid X for $100 with a new 2 year contract. That's a great bargain and a hell of a lot of phone for that price, but its entirely possible it will drop by Black Friday as well :)

    Happy Hunting!

    Damn i saw the title and thought that Verizon had dropped the price. I almost went to the store to ask them to refund me $100(i could really use $100) as i just got my X two weeks ago and am still within the 30 day return period. lol

    Anywhere cheaper than this? I'm hoping to find $0.01 deals for the Droid X on Black Friday!

    I'm not eligible for an upgrade until next month and my girlfriends upgrade is on November 20th. I called the VZW rep and she said she would send would let us use our upgrades early, so I bought the Droid X for $199 and got the LG Ally for free (for my GF).

    Should I return the phones to Verizon when I get them on Friday and just go to Walmart or somewhere where its cheaper? Will they let me upgrade early like the VZW rep did?

    Amazon wireless $49.00 on new two year. $99 upgrade. Be careful with them. No exchanges whatsoever. Only returns.

    Does anyone know if the official Verizon Stores would match the walmart/amazon/costco price?

    I have a $100 new every 2 discount, so I could potentially be getting a free phone if they do price match.

    They will do no such thing. You need to buy from them to get that price. Sorry.

    alright, it was worth a shot.

    I imagine they will be running a buy one get one sale or a price drop before long anyway, especially when these other retailers are running such sales.

    until nov 25 you also get a 100 gift card from walmart with the purchase of many brands of cell phones. thus you actually make 10 bucks with the DX and 60 if you want the fascinate.

    If verizon moves your eligibility date, otherwise no, walmart would see your normal date and has to stick to that.

    Because most people dont really NEED LTE, and by the time their upgrade comes around, it'll be in a lot more cities.

    Not everyone is an early adopter...

    Well I would love more speed! Im kinda pissed cause now im stuck with a 3g incredible. With no upgrade till the end of 2011. Do you think the major price drop on droid phones is cause of Lte coming out?

    Yeah, i'm looking at getting an X soon, i'll be ready for another upgrade i'm sure before 4G comes anywhere near me.

    I'm getting a DX now b/c its currently the best phone Verizon has out right now. It's even better than the HTC Merge that's coming out, besides the keyboard. Second, my next upgrade will be in '12, which will probably be the time LTE phones start exploding onto the scene and phones start pouring out. I'm not going to stick with my ancient D1 until LTE comes out and who knows for sure when that will even be.
