    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
