    Verizon has been advertising this for a while. It's only for new 2 year agreements.

    True, it's only for new 2-year contracts but it was only confirmed today so I don't think it's been advertised yet.

    I've seen the advertisements all over the store, and the website. I saw them when I went in exactly a week ago.

    You have really?? I don't remember seeing anything about it in store and when you go to the website it's still not advertised there.

    The Eris is added to the "select a free second phone" section once you select the Droid or Eris.

    It's not really a BOGO deal. You "get" the opportunity to sign up for a second line of service with a free phone. Seeing as how WalMart/LetsTalk was offering the Eris at $30 with no activation fee less than three days ago, this is actually a worse deal.

    It would seem to be an indicator that the nonsense promotional barrage has worn out it's welcome. Family-share-willing customers are a distinctly different market set from the gadget-obsessed who jumped in on the Droid.

    Now I'm hoping that we'll see $149 Droids in the post-holiday sales instead of $179.

    Looks like it's for reals! The flash shows some phones and the HTC Droid Eris has the words "Buy one, get one free!"...and then in small print, "With new 2-year activation..." etc.

    But interestingly, there's no Motorola Droid...only the HTC Ozone, Eris, Imagio, and Samsung Omnia....

    I just got off the phone with VZW and they couldn't give me my refund back for one of the two Eris' that I picked up last week yet. He said try calling back tomorrow since he didn't even know about this promotion yet.

    Update: Called VZW this morning and they credited $99 back into the billing account for the second HTC Eris. Yes!
