    Is it safe to assume that the bolt will be cheaper through vzw than best buy? If I could get my money back on my preorder it'd be nice to save 50 bucks. Even if I have to wait longer

    It's not safe to assume anything at this point. Usually the phones are only cheaper at VZW if there is some mail in rebate offer, but those were supposedly done away with. My feeling is it'll be $250 at both.

    Do you know if there's a activation fee at best buy for upgrading to a new phone?

    And you also know that if you pre-order at best buy, your' not really losing money you get a 50$ gift card towards the phone.

    Ahh but the rebate offer was only from 1/31 to 2/14. After that I have not seen a new Verizon rebate form. Therefore they can still break one out on us.. Look at this link.. It shows that the no rebate was just in place for the *hone launch..

    Yes I know. I wasn't sure if vzw would sell it for 199 or not that is why I asked.

    Damn, I thought MIRs were gone for good. Oh well, thanks for clearing that up.

    But if you go through Verizon website then the rebates are instant. Plus they ship over night. Yeah you got to wait that one night, but you don't have to worry about waiting for the rebate. I would rather wait one night then a couple weeks.. IMO...
