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

    Wait and see what happens? There's really no good answer to your question -- things change.

    Just keep in mind, you have 30 days to return your phone, so if they go BoGo then you should be able to pick up on that deal. Keep in mind BoGo are usually new-line or upgrade deals only. You wont be able to get one as a backup, or as something to sell on EBay.

    Are you buying at Verizon, online reseller, Walmart, Best Buy or somewhere else? There is a difference in pricing in those places. ALSO - Are you new with Verizon or are you upgrading?

    I would recommend checking out Cell Phones for free with Cell Phone Plans from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless or Free Cell Phones with New Cell Phone Plans - Shop Deals from Wireless Carriers - Wirefly.com. I believe you can get the DX for $49.99 at letstalk with a contract extension right now. I don't think I would ever buy direct from Verizon again.

    I bought my DX about two weeks ago from Dell for $19 out the door with a Dell $25 gift card. So far it's worked out great.

    so why buy from Verizon direct!?

    Holy crap! I just went to dell.com and am apparently able to upgrade my phone to Droid X for $49...Verizon direct is $199! So what am I missing here....why would I go to Version direct for an additional $150!?

    Be careful buying from places other than Verizon. Make sure you read everything because you are not only signing a new contract with Verizon you are also signing a contract with the company your buying from.

    You are creating an additional contract with the retailer saying you will keep the phone activated until you've satisfied your verizon contract. If you dont, you must pay the balance on the deal

    upgrades from agents vs Verizon direct


    No sure what you mean here... For example if my Verizon contract expires in May (which it does) I'd be signing another contract with Dell. BTW, Dell calls it an option to 'renew/upgrade your contract' then in the shopping cart its called 'contract extension'. Cannot make out reading the Ts & Cs if I am required to continue my old contract until it expires AND the new one for 2 years. What remains unclear is if I no longer get bills directly from Verizon and view my minutes, account, etc directly from Verzion.

    Anybody have any insights?

    Everything will still be through Verizon as far as I know. Here's an example about the contracts. Say three months down the road you decide you don't want the x anymore and you activate a different phone on your line. You have now broke your contract agreement with the company you bought the phone from and they will charge you for the device. When you sign the contract with them you have to keep it activated on that line for whatever amount of time they request in the contract. You can't change anything on your plan until after that time period has passed. They do it this way so you cant buy it for 50 bucks and a week later sell it for 400.

    Thanks.... That certainly makes sense...but then why wouldn't Verizon do the same thing...you are bound by their contracts for 2 years as well...but instead, they want $299 up front with $100 mail in rebate and a 2 year contract- and of course if I break the contract I pay for the phone!

    Bought my DX through Costco for $129.99 with a 2 year agreement.

    That Dell.com sounds like a pretty sweet deal :D

    Actually the "contract" with Wirefly and Dell, and any other sites run by our parent company Simplexity, is for the first 181 days. Our terms state the following:


    Wirefly promises you savings in the form of instant discounts with no rebates or gimmicks when you sign up for wireless carrier service. Delivering on this promise means that you must agree to maintain your agreement for a minimum of 6 months after activation. Deactivating your phone, or downgrading features or the rate plan, may lead to additional charges. To provide you with significant savings vs. buying in a retail store, the price you paid for your device includes an Instant Savings Discount from Wirefly.
    By accepting this Instant Savings Discount, you agree to repay $200 of this discount ($300 for smartphones and netbooks) and authorize us to charge your credit card in repayment of this amount if, during the 181 days after your new equipment is activated, your wireless carrier notifies us that the services you purchased have been suspended, disconnected, or deactivated, or if you return your purchase outside of the return and exchange provisions of our 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee.
    Please note some of the reasons your wireless carrier may notify us of a deactivation include if:

    <LI class=wf20_corestyle_li>You transfer this equipment to another carrier line of service after it is activated <LI class=wf20_corestyle_li>You change your rate plan to a lower monthly service rate than was specifically required at the point of purchase <LI class=wf20_corestyle_li>You deactivate texting/data features that were specifically required at the point of purchase<LI class=wf20_corestyle_li>The new line of service activated with your order is used to replace a pre-existing account
    Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. I am happy to answer them for you!:)
