    RAZR is $199.99 and Maxx is $259.99 on VZW website today! What's up with that? They were $99.99 and $199.99 respectively last week.

    I'm not sure how Verizon is going to sell older model phones at $200 and above when the GS3 is in stock and sitting on the shelf for $199.

    I just saw that too, and I'm not liking it. I was on the phone with Verizon yesterday going to order the RAZR for my step daughter and decided to call back today... If they won't honor the price, I'll freak out, lol.

    They had $100 of any Morolola phone promotion going for Dads and Grads. Looks like it expired the day after Father's day. It was on their website the whole time and it did say "for a limited time only".

    Awesome news. That way when the S3 comes out and I sell my Maxx, I can ask for more than I thought I was going to be able to!

    Yep, July 4th sales will probably start after the June 28 plan changes. :( I need to upgrade 2 phones before then and now am looking at a big price jump. Guess I'll see what I can find at amazon and costco.

    I have not looked at the site yet but assuming the price increase is true and I assume it is - clearly it would be to take advantage of the flock looking to snag a phone before the June 28th deadline. Free Market supply and demand, makes sense. Some may not like it and they can vote with their feet if they so choose.
    It is the way of our market econonomy folks, don't complain unless you complain when your Verizon stock price goes up too. Can't have it both ways.
