1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Morning!

    Plan on buying a droid before Christmas (hoping verizon will match TMobiles new pricing). Hard to believe I have made it this long without getting a phone. (I did have a company Storm for about six months; didn't really have problems other than it regularly rebooting.) Two of my son's have the G1 and they are both pretty impressed with it.

    Saw a pretty lengthy discussion here about problems with the GPS...Hope that's not the case in Atlanta!

    But a question about Verizon and "new" customers. Are they willing to offer anything "extra" to entice someone to sign today??? Or, is it just like a menu at Burger King (Combo #3 for $5.95)

    Thanks! Larr

    I think it is basically Burger King for the cell phone. If someone else knows otherwise, I am sure they will post. Of course there is the "new every 2" deal where you get the rebate, but other than that, I am not aware of anything.

    For pricing do you mean with services? I personally wouldn't hold my breath, but stranger things have happened.

    I am nowhere near Atlanta (I am in Phoenix) but I have had no problems with the GPS. I was out one night and just to mess with it I would purposely make a wrong turn based on what I knew it was telling me. Nearly immediately it would come back with new directions to "correct my error" so to speak. I was very very impressed.

    after working with verizon and best buy i ended up getting my droid for around $20...verizon gave me $50 off the phone and found another way to credit my acct for close to $90..best buy matched the sears deal of $149...just be cool to the person at the store and on the phone...if they cant help you, politely ask for a manager...tell em you are torn between the i-phone and the droid.....i have been a verizon customer with three lines for many, many years...it worked for me...good luck

    i switched from an iphone to the droid and they threw in $100 dollars worth of free stuff to "offset" my early termination with AT&T... I ended up only wanting about $60 worth of stuff so they through the extra 40 on as credit towards my first bill... it was better than nothing i guess
