    You got this price without having a contract?

    NP. I don't want to take hits from this page, but i HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend slickdeals for any electronic sale you are looking for. I got both my 60in plasma and my new droid from amazing deals found on that website.

    Oh no. It's $199 with just a verizon contract. Amazon has it for $149 but that signs you up for a 6mo contract with amazon along with your 2yr contract with verizon. LetsTalk and other website do the exact same thing. You sign a 6mo contract with them as well as the 2yr with verizon(or whoever your carrier is). The issue with their contract is that once signed, you can't change ANYTHING or you void it....within 6mo. So if you don't plan to change anything in 6mo then it's a steal I think!

    You asked if there was a forum HERE with deals and sales? I have no idea, therefore if there is..."i dont want to take hits away" but I have a different deal/sale website. Also, most forum mods frown upon posting another websites links. Specially when that website is also a forum of sorts.

    Love my new DNA! upgraded from a bottom of the barrel LG vortex. Couldn't get the wifi to connect anywhere until I found a fix on the verizon forums. Checked 'get best signal from wifi' and a few other things under the wifi settings. I love this phone!!!

    Hello cdogg777,

    it looks like each of us is having difficulty making oneself clear to the other.

    I'm asking specifically about the phrase "take hits from this page". By "take hits from" do you mean take damage from, as in by the risk of malware on certain sites? Or do you mean induce people to go from one site to another? Or something else entirely?

    Also, by "this page" do you mean droidforums.net or one or more of the sites you pointed out?

    Thank you very much, and enjoy your weekend!

    Jeff Deutsch

    Not sure how else to explain it man. A "hit", or web hit, is a term used for when someone goes to your website. If I click on a link, I just gave that website a "hit". +1 to their hitcount. Does that make sense? So by giving a link to another webpage, you may be indirectly taking "hits" away from the page where you posted the link. Whoever owns a page wants webhits. It's a pretty standard term used around the internet.

    Hello cdogg777,

    Now that you've explained your use of that phrase in detail, it makes sense in the context you gave it. Thank you!

    Please note that "taking hits" has certain other, also quite standard, meanings, and given how sparsely you put it originally I didn't want to make assumptions.

    Thanks again for your courtesy, and have a great rest of your day!

    Just two questions before I go pick up a DNA tomorrow. First, do I have to use the cloud (google play) for pics and songs? And also what happens to all my pics and songs on my old device, HTC Incredible 2? How do they switch over to the DNA if it does'nt have a removable SD card?

    No.

    You need to either use the cloud or put them on your PC. Connect your phone and usb to computer. Set phone to act as storage decvice(not charge only). Save files off to PC, once u get your new phone connect new phone to pc and move files back. DNA will pick up all files automatically. I did this already. Also, don't sell your phone back to verizon right away. Wait until you are sure you have removed everything you need. Also, be careful of the automatic download of ALL your apps and games.
