    So I just noticed that verizonwireless.com is down. There's a link for Shop or browse our selection of phones and plans.

    It takes to a page where it shows the droid for $150 now. So will those individuals who paid $200 get a refund now?? Weird how they're discounting it so soon.

    Edit: looks like it's for the NE2 plan. Completely missed the tiny print at the bottom.

    Even better: I thought I saw a BOGO with the DROID, but I don't think it was a BOGO DROID free, it was get another phone free.

    And now I cannot see it b/c:

    Oh and I got excited for nothing. I was hoping to get one for my wife instead of the Eris and figured they're price matching Sears. Sorry guys.

    Hmmm, I was planning on ordering mine tomorrow to be in the holiday returns window...maybe there'll be more surprises waiting for me. It'd be great if I got my girlfriend's phone free with the purchase of the Droid.

    Well, us early adopters had ot pay out of pocket and then get reimbursed with a $100 gift card if we purchased through the online to get our NE2 discount of $50. Now, it seems, that the rebates are gone and you get a discounted price of $199 minus the NE2.

    Of coruse, it makes sense - the rebate form itself says valid on purchasess from 6 Nov to 7 Nov only....

    But that is the NE2 discount price and no different then what we all payed. The online price was $199 out the door on release day - $50 ne2 discount and you would have payed $149

    I was up for NE2 in February as well. I was saving it for the Omnia2 but I just couldnt pass up the Droid , so I lost my NE2 and upgraded early for the Droid. Well worth it :D

    Online pricing would be $299 with an instant online discount of $100 making it $199 for any Joe Smoe. Beyond that if eligible for new every 2 credit you would receive another $30-$50 off depending on your NE2 discount. You should note that the online instant discount takes place of the mail in rebate and is online only. I you purchase in store you have to do the mail in rebate.

    Sounds like they forgot to honor your NE2 discount...



    FYI , The Droid BOGO is for either an LGVX5500 or an LG Glance with additional 2 year contract.

    Bought the Droid the second day out, paid $199 w/ the instant discount and with the upgrade credit got an additional $100 mail in rebate. Man, that was COOL!

    Have you gotten used to the "feel" of the Droid? My buddy has had his since day one and he says he still feels like he is going to drop it or otherwise break it. He says it feels "delicate" despite the size and weight.

    Delicate? No way! This thing is built like a TANK , its solid. And the slider is sturdy as hell ta boot! :D I have had alot of delicate phones in the past but this has to be the exact opposite end of that spectrum, imo.

    I dunno. I even almost dropped it Friday playing with it. Maybe when he gets his rubberized cover for it that will help with the slipperiness.
