Amazon.com: Samsung Fascinate Android Phone (Verizon Wireless): Cell Phones & Service
I saw this the other day! crazy!!!!
I was debating buying one then just ending the contract, knowing full well there is a $350 ETF.
But it looks like not only would you pay $350 for the ETF, if you don't maintain service for 181 days Amazon charges you an additional $250.
whoa. nice catch! umm....you should spread that word. b/c i know a lot of folks will be hitting up Amazon for the cheap deal.
Doesn't it figure i see this once i already transfered my line to Verizon and purchase the phone.
I guess with all the issues they're having, 1 cent makes sense. LOL.
upgrade is $99, or $149 if you are part of a family plan
Does anyone know how to transfer your phone number if you purchase a Verizon plan from Amazon.com and you are switching over from another carrier?
I just jumped on this deal. I have an iphone 3GS right now (had an iphone in 4 in June but returned it due to antenna issues). Now my 3GS is failing and I had been looking into an Android phone but was hesitant to break my AT&T contract. Well, AT&T refuses to reset my upgrade date since I bought a subsidized iphone in June, even though I returned it. Now they have my upgrade date listed as 11/2011. My contract with them ends on 05/2011. Try and make sense of that. My ETF is down to $100 so it is cheaper to swap carriers and and break my contract than to stay with them. Hope I like this phone!
This $0.01 is for a new line/account only, right? If I select "existing customer" it's back to $99 on Amazon. Even though I'm off contract, would I have to start a new account (and a new phone number) to get it for $0.01?
I do like the option of a 30 day trial when purchasing directly from Verizon - and the ability to exchange, as this will be my wife's first full smartphone without a keyboard. But is this worth $100?
Someone in another thread just mentioned that their Verizon store price-matched Amazon's $99. Might be worth checking in to for that 30-day trial thing.
Might be worth mentioning that even with my NE2 discount, Verizon still couldn't get down to price match Newegg.com's $79 Fascinate.
