    So I upgraded to a Droid about 2.5 weeks ago and I love it. I also found out that Amazon is selling the phone for about $80 cheaper. Is there a way I can return my droid back to the verizon store, get the one from amazon, and be $80 richer? I'm also part of a family plan, so i don't know if that makes things more complicated.

    Also, when I buy from amazon, who activates the phone? and who locks me into the 2-year contract? is that all done online when i buy the phone, or do i have to take it to a verizon store

    Thanks

    There will be a $35 restocking fee. Also, amazon may impose their own restrictions.

    Be advised, this is called "Churning" in the business, and Amazon may not get their commission for the sale, which is what makes the phone as cheap as it is for the customer. That being said, i know agents, such as amazon, will end up charging your credit card full price for the phone if they cannot get their commission from verizon because you "churned" and really are a verizon customer not an amazon customer.

    Not saying specifically you will have problems, but it's something to be aware of.
