    Best Buy selling phones @ Full retail for 100 or more than Verizon sells them for? The Bionic is 699.99 and god forbid if i do want something other than the Bionic, the Incredible 2 is 599.99, when respectably, the Bionic is 589.99 at verizon and the Incredible 2 is 435.99.

    doesn't make sense.

    they're banking on the stupidity of shoppers.
    either that or they dont really want to sell at full retail, they probably have a commission structure where they make more off renewals and new contracts then the retail price of the phone.

    That's what i figured. Someone said earlier that they won't do price matches 1/2 the time. I'm hoping they will. If not, then I'm just going to order it from VZW.com
