    Ok... I'm reading through the forums here and I notice people saying they got their droid for $199 (+tax) with the 'new every 2' Verizon thing. When you add in the $100 rebate card coming the real price is $99.99 + tax.

    I got mine on New Years day and I definitely was not on a contract for a long time (I've been waiting for the Droid and some cash to get it). However, when I look at my receipt it says I paid $249.99 (+tax) for it, not $199.

    Did I get taken for a ride? If so, anything I can do about it?

    New Every 2 Years is -$50.

    You might not have gotten the New Every 2 Year discount. Call Verizon if you are suppose to get it.

    I dont know how some people got some of the incredible prices they did unless they hadnt upgraded in years. I paid $299 + tax + $35 early upgrade. I did get the $100 rebate, so it came to about $250 total after rebate.

    Wife got hers for $199 out the door and she wasnt even eligible for upgrade. She did get an email with a special offer for $199 but the rep didnt believe us. Had to go and print out the offer and it was honored. No mail in, no tax, no early upgrade fee. Go figure.

    I bought mine at Best Buy for $149.00 as they honored my $50.00 discount thru Verizon and BB doesn't do mail in rebates so you get the $100.00 would-be mail in rebate instantly.

    Can you guys post/link something where I should have gotten this thing for $199 instead of $249? I'm still baffled because I went to a real Verizon kiosk to get this thing.

    You got the phone at $250 because of sales tax. I purchased a phone for someone else and sent 300 just because of the sales tax. The phone costs $199 with the 2 year contract agreement or if you are eligible for an upgrade. The only reason why people got it for 100/150 is because they were in line for an additional discount.

    When you buy it online or at BestBuy, the rebate is instant. If you went to a store you would pay $299 with a 100 dollar rebate.

    You got the normal price. If you buy it online or at best buy, it is $199, including an instant rebate. If you buy it at a store it is $299 with a $100 mail in rebate, and minus whatever ne2 discount you have.

    If you got it from Verizon it looks like you paid less than most. Verizon is 299.99 with a 100.00 mail in rebate. I'm guessing you had a $50 discount unless the Verizon price changed to a $50 instant with no Mail in rebate. Just guessing.

    Well I just called up VW and here is what they said. They did give me the new every 2 $50 credit thus making this $249.99+tax. I still will get the $100 rebate Visa Card making this $150+tax in the long run. Where people are getting this for $100 is by getting their Droid from the VW website directly OR going to Best Buy or some other outfit.

    So basically I get 'punished' by going to a real Verizon location instead of ordering directly from the website. I hate this double standard crap! I have the phone now so it's not worth the $50 bucks to return this and order via the website...grrrrr!
