    When you get your Incredible, are you going to go with the one year or the two year contract? And why?

    One year. Just look at how incredible a two year phone is then imagine how advanced phones will be just next year. I'm on the pay for new every year not the new in two.

    I know it wasn't an option but I went for no contract here. I don't like them and I change phones way too much to be locked in.

    Hey i am planning on doing 1 year also...did you pre-order it from bb or verizon?
    And how much total? I'm trying to find out the difference between bb and verizon for 1 year contract pre-orders.

    Thanks!

    I went 2 year because of the $99 pricing. 1 year kept showing me $267.

    2 Year contract. That'll give time for the LTE Rollout to fully complete, and some sweet phones to be out. :D

    Also, I'll be ordering when my NE2 is up on 5/18.

    2 year-- because it is an advanced phone, and expensive, I'd likely be happy with it for two years before I'd want a new one.
    I have a two year on my LG VX8350, which I liked when it came out, but now I can't stand two years later (and have hated for the past year). It seems ancient. The DI will still be a great phone in two years.

    2 year. The Incredible will last me long enough. No reason to spend $80 or so more on a phone and then pay another $200+ for another a year later while I'm in college.

    My work discount its only 30 dollars more to go one year. I have 5 phones on my contract do I can upgrade every 3 months or so.

    One year.
    Verizon has a weird pricing scheme where they sell the incredible (and other phones too, for that matter) for $200 off with a 1-year and $269 off with a 2-year. And the 1-year contract will be up sooner which means you'll be able to upgrade again in just a year.

    Basically, I'll be spending an extra $69 so that I can save another $200 in only a year's time, as opposed to saving another $269 in two year's time.
    Or i can sign myself up for another 1-year and buy a lame phone that I can sell for more than $69. And then I make my money back.

    I'm going 2-year and here's why. After 12 months, I'm eligible to get a new phone at two year pricing (it's called an Early Upgrade, normally there's a $20 fee to do it, but that's waived if you buy online from the VZW store). Also, I have the benefit of this, if there's no phone I'm interested in at the 12 months point, I can wait and still upgrade at two year pricing at any time until I'm at 20 months at which point I get my NE2 discount on top of the two year price. By the way, Early Upgrades are available to any line under a 2 year contract that has an individual access cost of 34.99 or higher, i.e. single line plans, familyshare primary lines, and unlimited talk familyshare secondaries.

    So... You're really paying $69 to upgrade two months before me. I'm not seeing any other real benefit there.

    I was wondering when the early upgrades were. I have a primary family share plan. I can upgrade every year if i sign a 2 year contract now? SWEET! Thanks!

    My Plan is to go one year. I do not plan on buying insurance so the warranty should take through the first year and if it is lost, stolen or breaks I will have a smaller risk being one year. Plus I am sure some buy it for what I paid so they will not need to be on contract and that could possibly pay for the latest phone that is out at the time.

    Who has it for $99.00? Is that after your ne2?
  16. mmisterio

    mmisterio Well-Known Member

    Correct. But selecting 1 year got made the price 269 with no NE2 applied

    I agree with SailingMaster. I spoke to a CSR last night and it sounds like a 2 year contract works out better, because you still get the option to upgrade at 12 months using what they call the early upgrade. CSR told me it's only $20 to use this early upgrade. SailingMaster says that is waived if you buy online- even better!

    So as he stated..do the 2 year- if there's a phone you're lusting for after the 12 months, use the early upgrade option. If not, wait and get your NE2.

    Is there any fine print missing with this? Sounds too good to be true.

    I also went with the 2 yr because I can upgrade after 12 months, or only wait another 8 after that if nothing better is out and get my NE2 credit.

    do you have to have a certain plan to be able to upgrade after 1 year on a 2 year year plan?

    how are people getting the $229 for 1 year option? and some other people have had business reps say that they can't pre order the phone on a corporate account at all? help!!! i want a 1 year for $229!!!
  21. Needz_Android

    Needz_Android Well-Known Member

    $229 is if you have a corporate discount

    I went for the one-year option of $229. $30 is nothing; especially since I hate being tied down to a contract and it gives me the option to upgrade again very shortly. The Droid 2 might just have my name on it. We'll see.

    i do! but i read that people are calling their corporate reps and are being told that they can't pre-order? did you call or log in to the business portal?

    Looking online my "Corporate Discount" just replaces the "online discount", the difference being I can go to the local corporate store and get the "Corporate price", phone in hand and not have to deal with the mail in rebate. This may be what I do if wirefly doesn't have it any cheaper starting the 29th... Droid was only $99 there to start so we'll see.

    As for contract. I too am going with the 2yr. I have had Verizon for years and don't plan on switching. I have also done the "Annual Upgrade" so I don't see a reason for only 1 year contract. 2 years is nice with the added benefit of the NE2 at the end.

    I went online for corporate price and it would let me pre-order, my rep hasn't responded to my emails and isn't answering her phone.
