    It's too bad none of the retailers is stocking the 64GB version. I kind of would want that one, as I've blown through all of my storage on my 64 gig Turbo.

    I thought Verizon did away with the contracts? So what does that 2 year contract thing mean, you have to finance the phone for 2 years?

    They did but they didn't. That's one way to keep your UDP and get a new phone for cheap.

    BB deal on DPP of 21.83. for 24mths is a reasonable price IMHO. Even better with the JBL thrown in.
    I'm really torn about getting this or waiting for the 2016 Nexus or seeing what the Moto X 2016 is like. Decisions decisions. Wonder how long BB will be offering this deal?

    The BB Contract thnig is a racket. Don't fall for it.
    No, VZW does not offer consumers contracts. Best Buy does for a mere $40/month connect fee. Yes, they double VZW's connect fee. So I suppose it might be worth it to get the phone for $1.00.
    But just be warned... BB does get theirs. $40/mon x 24 mon = $960 as opposed to the $480 VZW gets.

    Alright. I'm curious here. $1.99 for the new phone + the free speaker, but the connect fee you're talking about is the upgrade fee, right? VZW charges $20 one-time and BB wants $40?

    Or this is $40 extra each month?

    Because I'm checking this out and it's showing as $1.99 with new contract and a one-time $40 access fee.

    If my bill's not going to change...I'm seriously considering this deal...

    I'm no expert on these Best Buy options, never bought a phone through them but this is in the fine print once you select that phone:

    Except as follows, your current Verizon price plan and features will not be changed with this transaction. Each device added or upgraded to your account will incur a Monthly Line Access Fee which may vary based upon your contract or device payment enrollment.

    Also, the $1.99 phone is the regular Droid Z, not the Force. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it's a really nice phone; but the shatter proof screen and larger battery may be worth the extra $$ to get the Force.
