    Interesting...

    I signed up using 2 different emails accounts as well. Only recieved both emails on the one email account. Just recieved the first email on the 2nd account. So maybe it's legit. whoohooo! Save me from having to buy it at full retail for sure.

    Thankfully I have 2 lines and the second is up for renewal so the wife will get the Droid hand me down (Huge step up for her though coming from the LG Dare.....lol) and I get to go onto the Droid X. Then next year onto the Droid Pro with my Droids renewal.....

    I got the 2nd one that says YOU will be eligible for upgrade on 07/15/10 for 199.99. Also another question, if I upgrade online will I skip the whole 100$ mail in rebate thing?

    Normally. Best Buy and some other non Verizon vendors normally get around that as well.

    I am wondering about the upgrade as well.

    When I log into my verizonwireless account, and i choose my phone (the primary line), I see that my NE2 is due in 12 months. But when I hover over that bubble, a window pops up saying that I am eligible for discounted pricing on a phone on 10/22/10 (which is 4 months prior to my contract end date).

    I figure that this means I have the ability to upgrade at the 2 year price if I sign up to extend my contract.

    I hadn't heard about the 1-year upgrade eligibility (into a 2-year contract) thing before - not sure if the 4-month to end of contract deal is different?

    And - could you do the same upgrade at the 1-year contract price for about $269? I am not a big fan of 2-year contracts.

    I thought they were just repackaging it, not discontinuing it.

    Hmmm...the Incredible retails for $529.

    I'm sure they will, it's just a question of when will they start accepting pre-orders? Your guess is as good as mine.

    $20 Ripoff

    An additonal $20 for wifi tethering!? I wonder just how many people are going to pay for it. A data plan at $30 plus an additonal $20, $50 is pretty steep on the rare occassion when you're out you might want to share your singal. Thats more than what lot of home internet providers charge and at least one can hook up one's feed to many devices as one wants. Example, Cabelvision in NY charges $29.99 (when bundled) for home internet service. Verizon, the very company who came up with this ridiculous charge, charges about $32 (when bundled) for its Fios service. This is one of the features that I was looking foward too. I might have been willing to pay an extra $5 for it, but $20, no damn way :icon_evil:! I still plan on getting an X, but I seriously doubt very many people will make use of this feature now. dancedroid A HEX ON Y0U VERIZON!! dancedroid

    I know I will not be paying for the wifi hotspot. Just not worth it. And it is even worse considering Sprint allows you to do it for free...... If only they have better service at my house I would consider Sprint for the Evo....
