1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So right now I have a non-smartphone and I don't have a data plan. I'm on Verizon. I just recently got my phone and I am still within my 30 day window for returns. I want to return my phone to Verizon so I can get a Droid 2 Global instead. Would I be allowed to do this without getting hit with extra fees (besides the restocking fee)? Also, the Droid 2 Global is $50 cheaper on Amazon. Would I be able to buy my new phone from Amazon and not be subject to any extra fees or anything like that?

    If you already have a contract then you're stuck getting your phone from Verizon. Sorry.

    However, you can do that. Restocking fee should be it. Other than your $30 data plan.

    if hes within 30 days he can cancel the service as well and then go through amazon. im pretty sure youd be able to get verizon to price match though.

    I think you might be right, actually. I wasn't given that option because my Droid came free with a price match/beat, so I forget it's an option for some people.

    I have a hard time believing that you wouldn't need to pay extra for a device upgrade of that nature. When I purchased my Droid 1 on a 2 year contract, the phone cost $149.

    It's the same if you return a pair of pants and try to get a more expensive pair instead - the store will charge you the difference between the two.

    I think the OP meant besides that difference. :)
