    Does anyone know if Verizon will do a 1-year contract for the Thunderbolt online and what the price will be? I heard rumors of $70 more than the 2-year price so $319.99? Could anyone confirm this? Thanks

    Verizon cut out annual contracts I thought.
    2 year price is 299.99

    From the reps Ive spoken to, this isn't true. One years will still be available for most phones. I couldn't get any confirmed info out of them regarding the TB though.
    I see the saddest facial expressions when the TB is mentioned in a Verizon store.

    Do you have any sources for that? I was planning on getting a refund for my pre-order at best buy since they told me they don't do 1-year contracts but I know that Verizon stores used to. But if that changed I'll just get my Thunderbolt at best buy

    Wait until the announcement is made, then go visit a Verizon store and ask.
    That way they can actually tell us something.

    Just do a search - it is all over these forums. VZW offers 1yr contracts on everything but the iPhone. There is no need to link to a source because nothing changed. 2yr contract terms did, which is explained here, on the news, and on VZW's site. 1yr is unchanged.

    Verizon still offers 1yr contracts for a price. Its $70 more right now, but that could change Also, only Verizon retailers do 1yr contracts; so no Best Buy and such.

    $400?? Anyone else hear this? Damn I might have to get the 2-year from best buy still then. How much do you think a thunderbolt will go for on Ebay in a year? Not planning on selling it but in case I want an upgrade next spring I'd like to be able to have some options

    makes sense 299 for a 2 year deal (not including tax). SO if you add 80 bucks you are looking at around 400 bucks.

    Has that $299.99 been confirmed? Best Buy told me last night that it would still be $249.99, not sure if this is the same through Verizon but I would assume it would be the same, if not less.

    when put this way yes it does make sense, but I still think 299 is ridiculous for a 2yr....

    just complaining over here... doesn't change anything :(

    I agree which is why I am tempted to wait for the price to drop and they normally drop when a new phone is released. Ill wait for the release of the bionic to buy the tb if I can be disciplined enough to wait that long.

    I called two local stores and neither of them knew anything about the 1-year contract price or release date. Anyone else have any input?

    That is what everyone is trying to figure out. They didn't give you a 2yr price either, right?

    Nope. Not a 2 year price, 1 year price, or release date. It's ridiculous that this information hasn't been finalized or released yet.

    This has got to be like, Verizon's biggest secreted phone ever.. I've never heard of a device taken so long to be released from when it was first brought out into the public's eye by verizon.. has there been any other phone that seems like it's been a huge secret. it's like it's confidential or something like that.

    Does anyone know how Verizon typically handles 1-year contracts? I'm assuming they aren't available online since I haven't seen any links for them on their site. However, I've heard they're available in stores and typically $70-80 more than the 2-year price. Is this always true? I'm planning on signing up for a new family plan in which I'd purchase the Thunderbolt as the main line and 2 basic feature phones for my parents, probably the LG Accolade which is free with a 2-year contract. Does this mean that those 2 phones will be $70-$80 each plus the price of the Thunderbolt which will probably be $320-$400 with a 1-year contract?

    It is right there on their site. Just click Pricing for 1yr instead of 2yr.
