    So Amazon is having a 111 price for their Droid Razr phones.

    What is stopping you from getting a new line and new Razr then paying the 200 dollar cancellation fee?

    It would still be far cheaper than buying the phone without a contract.

    I don't think it wouldn't work.

    yeah - you'd have the $350 from Verizon and $200 or whatever it is from Amazon

    Even then it would still be cheaper than paying 650 though

    350 + 200 + 111 = 661... isn't it $650 retail through Verizon? Maybe I'm wrong...

    In light of new evidence I revise my previous statement to "I don't think it wouldn't work but it would probably not be beneficial."

    Oh wait. I thought the 350 replaced the 200.

    that's the "catch" with Amazon, they have their own ETF on top of Verizon's... it's more lenient, but it's there

    Yeah you save a bit of money, but is all that really worth the $50 (after taxes, buying retail) you'd save? Rather just pay full retail than spend time sorting everything out, by the time you can get your cheaper Razr going you've put maybe an hour or two into canceling an account, getting the new line hooked up, waiting for the phone to arrive, and then activating it.
