    Both Wirefly and Sears Wireless have the Dinc2 for $19.99. I've always been skeptical of these sites but they seem to be legit deals so I'll have Wirefly a try. Would have preferred Amazon Wireless since I always buy stuff from Amazon but they are at $79.99. Two Dinc2s for $19.99 each sounds like a deal to me.

    $19.99?

    How are you seeing it for $19.99? I see $49.99 at Wirefly ($44.99 at Sears). I know there is a $25 coupon at Wirefly (MEMORIALDAY25) but that is not valid at Sears and it still only brings the price down to $25, not $20.

    I am trying to decide between the Incredible 2, Droid X (free at Wirefly) and Fascinate (free at BB). I actually need 3 hones so a 3rd Incredible 2 would cost me an extra $50 at Wirefly.

    For a new contract it's $19.99, and when I apply the coupon it's 100% free. Can't beat free...but I will be tied in to a $200 a month bill for the next 2 years since I'll be adding 4 phones (2 Dinc2s and 2 free phones).

    GL, I am considering taking the plunge for the Incredible 2 as well, since the Amazon free day did not pan out. Was hoping to get a droid charge. Thanks for the coupon code. I priced it and it is free. I would be a new customer coing over from ATT. I am on the fence though since 4G is being reported already here in Co. Springs, testing phase, should be up and running in the next 4-6mos. Can't decide if I should hold out for a sub $100 4G phone???

    I just ordered the Incredible 2 from wirefly. I went to the Verizon store and was very impressed with it. My OG is on the fritz and I just can't wait anymore. Looking forward to getting my Incredible 2!

    The problem is, if you wait too long, they will have switched to usage billing (who would have thought I'd be thinking that $30/mo was a bargain). One thing to consider is that when you look at the $$ you are committing to pay over the next 24 months, paying $250 for a phone is not that much. However, I still don't want to do it.

    I am seriously considering ordering two I2's. My daughter and I checked it out at the Verizon store today and it looks pretty nice.. a good size. I was talking to a sales rep at Verizon and she was telling me that I should get a 4G phone, and at their ridiculous $200 price I can understand that since it's not much cheaper than a 4G phone. But at $25 it's another story entirely.

    Placed my order today, not sure what price it goes back to after the special ends today. I got 2 Dinc2s for me and the wife, and 2 LG Accolade flip phones for my parents. After applying the coupon the entire $39.98 total was wiped out and I owed zero. I decided to pay for 2nd-day air shipping so my total cost is $7.99.

    The first bill will have the activations fees from Verizon so that's another $120 and I'll end up paying another $99 to get out of my Tmobile contract during the last 30 days. I could have saved the $99 to Tmobile if I waited another month but the Wirefly price might be higher then, the Memorial Day coupon won't be good (it was worth $39.99), and the wife has been bugging me for over 6 months now to get a smartphone...we've had clamshell dumbphones for the last 2 years.

    My wife thought I was crazy when I ordered cases for the Dinc2s last week before I even ordered the phones. I knew this was the phone I wanted, just didn't know when we'd get them.

    Actually I don't even know what I'm going to do with a smartphone, I hate carrying a cell phone...it's the wife that wants one. But since my office gives me a $150/mo. technology allowance the portion of the monthly bill that is for my phone goes on my expense report so I figured I may as well get one too.

    What is the best place to get a case for the Incr. 2?

    I already created a thread for that -- "Case and car mount for Incredible 2?" No replies yet about the case.

    BTW, the price is back up to $79.99 for new or renewal.

    OK.. now I see why the question was asked here. Where did you get them from?

    I almost bought the Droid X/X2 accessory kit from VZW last week when they had it for $19.97. In fact, I was kicking myself for not having done so when the price went back up to $49.97. Now I'm glad I didn't!

    Just remember that wirefly has a separate ETF that would be in addition to VZW ETF...

    As does Amazon. It is not my intent to break either contract. The only thing I am concerned about is loss/damage.
