    Typically verizon drops price of a phone a few weeks or a week before a comparable device (replacement) comes out. I dont see them dropping price for awhile until a device with ICS comes to verizon and I honestly have no clue when that will be. Like the HTC rezound vs the Nexus, similar specs but nex has a bigger screen and ICS and the rezound is $199 afaik.

    I'm not really sure why, but I got mine Thursday night for $169.99 on the Verizon website.

    I was eligible for a $30 NE2 but when I went to check out there was an addition $100 taken off.

    I believe you get $100 off when you move to a 4G device.

    Yep if you live in the Midwest. I made a stink about that when I tried to upgrade (since I live in georgia) so they took 30 bucks off my bill for the next 12 months and I got to use my 50 dollar NE2

    Verizon is usually the last to price drop. I know it's cheaper on Amazon now.

    Only if you're in the mid west would you get 100 off for going from 3g to 4g.
