    While Verizon is being cute with their time-frame of selling the new Droid RAZR from Motorola on 11-11-11 at 11:11am, instead Amazon is getting clever and competitive. They are selling the new superphone for $111.11 dollars! Of course, that price is only for new customers that sign a new 2-year contract with them, but you gotta give them credit for out-shining VZW. Their renewed contract price is $199.99.

    Also, we noticed that this deal may be region specific, and that it looks back-ordered. Perhaps some of our members out there can take advantage of this offer? Sound off in the forums if you can.

    Tried in Albany, NY. Phone is listed at $119.99 for new contract, $189.99 for renew. I hope they do something like this with the Nexus.

    I wouldn't want to tie myself to two sets of ETF although I did pick mine up through VZW for a total of $219

    Hate it how new contract prices are always cheaper than renews. I realize they want to lure as many new customers as they can, but to everyone else its pretty much comes off like "as a token of our thanks for being a long time customer, you get to pay more than everyone else for this phone because you don't really have another option"

    I am sure this has been answered before, but I want to make sure. If I were to renew my contract through Amazon, do I keep my unlimited data plan or do I get forced to the tiered plans?

    Ive been leaning slightly towards the GNex over the Razr for my renewal. But if there happens to be a renewal deal close to this price, that would easily sway my decision.

    I called Amazon wireless as soon as this was posted this morning and it wouldn't let me finish the order online (it said the phone wasn't available at every zip code I could possibly enter for towns all over the US) and the guy said he can't place orders over the phone and to wait untill 11/11 and it will work online. He said that the web page was posted to see if it worked and they have now taken it down so the web page will only display if you have the link saved. I then tried to purchase another phone to see if the plan has to change and if you pick that you are an existing customer it states "no plan change" so you can keep your same plan.

    So can those of us who are in the middle of our contract get any of the deals? Is it possible to just essentially start over even though we are only 6 months into it and by doing so keep our unlimited data and get a reduced price?

    If you are in a contract you can't do anything except pay full price or add a line.

    Has anyone here that was grandfathered into an unlimited plan updated with Amazon and kept their unlimited plan?
