    How can I get this deal, I just got a new verizon account with a 2yr deal this past weekend, I got the the free Moto Citrus to test out the cell coverage in my area. Can I take this back to a Verizon store or online store and get the amazon deal somehow?

    You'd have to take it back and cancel then start another new one through Amazon.

    The $199 is far more in line with the device IMO

    Really need to check out Wirefly. You just missed a Father's Day special. For one day they had the Charge for $129. I think its $199 now though.

    OK, I've been checking this out and I see that Amazon has the Charge for $179. Sounds like a deal-maker for me and I want to go with this, especially since we'll be getting two and setting up a new contract to get grandfathered in before the change in data rates. So my question is — what's the catch? has anyone gone through Amazon to set up a new VZW account and had issues? I read that activation is handled via phone after delivery. Any problems there? Do they want to charge an arm and a leg for the activation? I also see that number porting is handled after the fact the same way due to "technological issues." I just like to have my homework done before I make my decisions.

    Thanks!

    My Verizon rep told me that if I do this through Amazon, you cannot change your contract at all afterwards. Is this true? Said something about then charging you fees for all the phones on your contract...? I just went ahead and bought it in the store, but I am within my 15 days. Should I pay the restock, return, and go through Amazon? We will absolutely need to change the contract within 6 months because my husband will be upgrading his phone for work, and work will begin to pay us for it. We will need texting plans, etc. Help. :heart:

    You *can* change your plan, sure...
    Although if you do within a certain time frame (think 180days)
    you might have to pay out your butt for fees...

    You should have gone to Costco.
    They had the Charge for $179.99, free activation and
    I only paid sales tax on $299.99, so here in Cali it came out to be $206
    and change.
