    Does it matter if i get this phone from a best buy or Verizon direct? Seems easier to get from best buy because the rebate is applied immediately...

    idk if best buy can do 1 year contracts but im not sure i know i had an issue trying to help a friend upgrade her phone at best buy because she was only up for a early upgrade not a full upgrade and they said they couldnt do it.

    If you order online there are no rebates to deal with.

    thats what customer service said too, but when i put everythign in cart it still shows something about the rebate and i am not seeing a final total price that reflects the adjustment of the rebate.... :mad:

    This looks to have changed. I went to verizonwireless.com and they all say $100 mailin rebate now instead of instant rebate.

    yep, customer service was wrong, i guess i might as well get it from best buy then and get the rebate immediately, just have to do 2 year contract,

    also now seeing this HTC Merge which looks pretty cool. maybe i should just wait it out a bit and see what phones are released before xmas.... :D

    very lame, i hate mail in rebates, if i am locking in a 2 year contract just give me the price i deserve. mail in rebates are such a cheezy sales tactic.

    Yep. However, statistically most people never send in the rebate and Verizon (or whoever is offering a rebate) gets to keep the money. If they issue it immediately of course they loose it. Smart on their part. Sucks on ours...

    I am not a fan of mail in rebates either, but I will give Verizon credit and say that mine arrived very quickly. A rebate from sprint took over 8 weeks to get to me, Verizon came in just over 2 weeks....really not bad at all.
