    So, my AT&T contract is up next month and I will be switching back to Verizon and getting the Droid X. Now, my question is, will Verizon give me any sort of deal or incentive to switch to them? They don't need to know I already plan on doing it, but if I can save a few bucks, then that would be awesome.

    Any ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated. dancedroid

    $400 off a sweet new phone isn't enough of an incentive? :) They already provide the best data network in the country.

    yeah i didn't mean to be a smart a$$, but they're pretty finicky when it comes to that stuff... not to say it's not worth trying though!

    You will get more incentives from AT&T to stay than you will from Verizon to switch. You will get pretty much what every other new customer gets. Nothing more.

    And with this being said you get the best data network and a Droid X for $199. What more could you possibly ask for? Frozen Yogurt? dancedroid

    Wow! Who knew I would get such smart a$$ responses from some of you. That was really unexpected. As I stated, I'm going to switch anyway, but can you really blame me for asking?

    Dude....was that really necessary?

    And depending on where you are, that's not the case about them having the best data network. Trust me. I get better coverage in my home with AT&T...MUCH better, but I really want a droid phone, so I'm willing to switch.

    I suppose next time I won't ask about incentives here...

    ETA: Oh and for getting the phone for $199, I have to sign a 2 year contract just to get it for that price, so I'd say they're getting there money out of me anyway....

    as i said already, sorry for being a smart a$$, but most of us have been with verizon for awhile now, so we're a tad cynical about verizon giving away much of anything, and it's pretty well a running assumption, dare i say joke, that verizon is very proud of themselves... albeit, they deserve to be to some extent... at least in a lot of areas besides yours

    If I was you, and only in this instance of trying to get something for switching to Verizon, would I recommend you call customer service and see if they'll wave the activation fee and through in some accessories. I think they would be more willing to do so than actually going into a store. Though going into a store I'm sure you can get some free accessories, but will still have to pay the activation fee.

    What phone do you currently have by the way?
