    That's your call to make, not ours.

    That is how I bought mine, it's nice not being locked into a contract. Plus if something better comes out in 3 months I can get it and sell my Droid X.


    If you want to look at it from a logical standpoint, the material costs in the Droid X alone are around $200. The rest is dumped into assembly and recouping R&D costs.

    I too am waiting for my DX to arrive. I'd talk to Verizon and see what kind of deal they might make to keep my business if I were in your situation. Tell them you would be happy to extend your contract with them rather than switch to a different carrier...

    Just a thought, but let us know how you make out.:cool:

    I just got my DX, purchased off contract. (I used my upgrade about 4 months ago to get the original Droid, so had no upgrade available. And, before anyone asks, I upgraded to the X for the bigger screen, mainly.)

    All said, my total bill (tax, any shipping, etc...) was $604.00

    That is how much it will cost you.

    Plus there is a wait for delivery, which varies wildly.

    ...to you. I have a friend who has bought her last 2 phones unlocked from Europe (Nokias, an N900 and an N85 before that I think), and she paid $600 each for them, plus the shipping overseas. She had no problem with it, considers the phones worth it. I personally wouldn't spend that much on a phone (the $200 point is about right to me), but just because we don't think a phone is worth $600 doesn't mean somebody else won't think it is.

    OUCH! I agree that is way too much :eek:. I paid only a quarter of that to re-up my 2-year agreement. I can't believe they didn't give you some kind of pricebreak to keep you a happy Verizon customer! Either that or just wait until you are halfway through your two-year with the original Droid and then add a year to your contract for the 1-year price ($299) for an X.

    Although by that time there will probably be better phones available anyway...

    Your call. Some technophiles love their cells so much that the investment is worth it to them. Here's an idea:

    Buy the phone. Use it for however long you want and sell it on ebay and put the sale price to the new one? Just a thought.

    I switched only 7 months into my contract and they gave me the 2 year pricing deal.

    Don't pay full price, that is crazy.

    I paid full price for my Incredible. I bought the X under a 1 year contract. I sold the Incredible. My net out of pocket was $300. That's about $70 more than a 1 year contract for the X.

    Buying a phone full retail isn't as bad as most of you make it out to be.
