    Where's the pricing for the 64GB version? Online I'm only able to select the 32GB option.

    Am I missing something here?

    I think you can only do it on the Motorola site at this time

    Also saw that on the VZW website. 0.00% APR, whereas on the Moto site, no discounts on a 2nd Moto mod, & 9.99% APR. End up paying $150 extra in interest alone.

    Definitely no interest is the way to go ! I usually buy them outright or when I find stuff on BestBuy pay off interest free on card

    On Sunday I ordered a Moto Z Droid from Verizon for $199.00 and with a 2 year contract. I have not updated my Droid RAZR M for over 4 years because I didn't want to lose my Unlimited Data. I was able to keep my same plan for the next two years. Then I see on Best Buy's web site I could get the Moto Z for $1.00 and a two year contract ($99.00 for the Moto Z Force). So I canceled the Verizon order and ordered a Moto Z for a buck and kept my same plan. We'll see how it works out, can't wait till Thursday.

    If I understand this correctly you were able to keep your unlimited data with the 2yr plan thru Best Buy? I'm in the same situation. Went to BB today to do the pre order but the person I work with is off till Wednesday.

    Yes, I ordered the phone on BB site and as for my plan my bill says "Verizon Wireless Keep Existing Plan"
    I had the same deal going with Verizon, but as I posted above, BB had a better deal. I will have to pay a $40 activation fee which will come on my phone bill

    Verizon has informed me that even these "Verizon Wireless Keep Existing Plan" contracts from Best Buy will suffer the loss of the "plan feature", that being "Unlimited Data" as a plan feature. In other words, your basic plan (for me its Nationwide Calling with 1400 minutes at $70/month), would stay the same but you would lose UDP.

    I've also been informed that if this loss of Unlimited Data happens, Verizon will honor reversing the loss of the UDP if you essentially reverse the transaction that caused it and then put in a request within 60 days of plan feature termination. In other words, take it back to Best Buy in that example and ask for a refund.

    The problem in a nutshell is that Verizon looks at Best Buy purchases with a new 2-year Verizon Wireless plan agreement as a "subsidized" phone. This is against the plan rules required to keep UDP. In order to keep UDP, the only way now is to "bring your own phone". Buying it at Best Buy under a new 2-year contract, and paying either $1 for the Moto Z or $99 for the Moto Z Force will be treated as "subsidized" and NOT as if you paid full retail and simply swapped SIM Cards.

    I am only relaying what I've been told. This was all cross-referenced with senior level support staff supervisors at Verizon Wireless.

    When did this happen? The bb method has worked for many for years. Get new phone, dont use the sim they gave you, use your original.
