    I apologize if this has been asked/answered before. I did a quick search and couldn't find what I am really looking for, which is:

    Feedback on your experiences, opinions, positives & negatives, etc of purchasing online vs at the Verizon store? With online prices being so much less (at times) ... do the brick and mortar stores offer that much more?

    Thanks.

    Oh yeah .... I don't have a droid yet. I'm in the process of deciding what I want to get. Right now it's between TB and DX.

    Wow. I hadn't heard that the stores could price-match. That's significant savings. Last I checked wirefly had the DX for FREE with my renewal and Verizon is still about $150. Big difference.

    Yay if they'll pm. Have you had them do that for you?

    Do yourself a favor. Do it on the net or over the phone, unless you want to try something out stay out of a Verizon store. Next day delivery. I hate going over there.

    No I mean they will match whatever is on Verizon's site...bc it takes 2-5 buiss days for the change to get to the store (let me know how that happens idk) they don't match just any site....so yes as hook said just do it on the net much easier unless your like me and just can't wait :icon_ banana:

    Stores don't match the website. Maybe the price 'before rebate' but not the price after rebate. Stores are required for you to send in the mail in rebate, same as telesales, the instant rebate can only be obtained online.

    But you are still paying the same price overall. It's just that you are paying $50 more at the store, but you get it back a week later. Small price to pay for getting your phone the same day.

    A week? Expect a minimum of 3 weeks, up to 6 weeks.

    For me, it is better to buy products in offline process that doing it though online.
    Until now there is no law that will protect me in any trouble which I may encounter in buying online.
