    I've been researching phones for my first smart phone for about 6 months. I've almost decided on the Droid X. I think I will buy it at the one year price.

    On line, the one year contract price is $269.99. I stopped in at my local corp. store just a few minutes ago and their price for a one year contract on a Droid X was $319.99, $50.00 more:eek:. This was just the phone, no accessories added. They told me that the $269.99 was a special on line price and I told them it was a system-wide price.

    Who's right and is this normal and I just didn't know it or are they trying to rip off an old man?

    Online price and store price are the same, $199.99. The difference is instant rebate online versus mail in in store (which only takes 2 weeks from my experience). You may have a NE2 credit of $50 if you are upgrading as an existing customer.

    I have noticed that you can get a better deal from VZW online. I bought my Droid X for $140 ($199 price, -$50 online discount, then I used a promo code I found online for an extra 10% off.) Plus the rebate was instant no mail in. To me it was worth it to wait overnight and get the phone. I did pay $8 for expedited shipping, but I ordered at 3pm local time and had it waiting at work for me when I got in the next morning.

    Online prices are almost always cheaper.

    Check also to see if you happen to have an employer discount plan with VZW. I got my X for $229 on a 1-year plan. Savings of $40 versus regular online price.
