Motorola lists phones that won't get Jelly Bean, offers $100 credit to buy a phone that will -- Engadget

Back in September, Motorola Mobility
announced that some of its handsets from 2011 and later wouldn't be making the jump to Jelly Bean. In an effort to smooth things over with exiled customers, the company pledged that it would offer a $100 rebate to those who trade up to a select Motorola smartphone. Today, the Google-owned Android maker has released a list detailing which phones qualify for this promotion. If you're among the many who purchased a Droid 3, Droid X2 and Photon 4G, it looks like an official update to Android 4.1 is out of the question. It should be noted that this offer doesn't affect your wireless contract's terms and conditions (read: ETF may still apply). However, if you're just aching to pick up a Motorola phone that released in 2012, then why not score a $100 credit for your troubles? Move past the break to see which other devices made didn't make the cut.

Right, but I've got a D3 and buying a D4 won't get the rebate. However, I wont be buying another phone direct from vzw anyway.....once I do I lose my grandfathered data plan. Gotta stay under the radar

I went to VZW and found out that this rebate is useless, unless someone some has other info on this, they said unless your contract is up you don't qualify to used this rebate and get another phone such as the Razr M.

You won't lose your unlimited if you buy full retail. If you buy subsidized, then yeah. But, you might wanna try swappa to find a good phone. It's more trustworthy than Craigslist.

VZW might be fibbing, but I thought it was if you buy a phone period. I'm not sure, but I would call and ask several other stores to see if their stories corroborate.
