Gravity has a little bit of a point though. Although said kinda in a D$#% way we shouldn't whine about $50. And yes not everybody has money and would love to save $50. I would too. But C'mon if you have NE2 that brings the phone down that $50 NEways. Or $100 if you are grandfathered in. Yeah the $149 deal is great but I would rather get my phone from Verizon anyway or BestBuy at least. $50 to me isn't worth the aggravation and time.
