    Thanks for the info. I am paying full price from mine and would consider waiting a few days to get it, this saves me about $35 in tax and I get free shipping.

    I'll see how it goes at Best Buy first, not sure i can wait tho.

    Also, if you don't mind taking out another credit card, you can get $40 more discounted by applying (and being approved for) the Amazon Visa card.

    And the Droid is $19.99 per phone.

    For new service sign-up, with 2 lines, one Incredible and one Droid, the total is $79.98.

    Pretty good deal considering Amazon is a very well respected online retailer and the in store or Verizon website price for the same phone together would be $400.

    That's a $320 savings. Even without the Amazon credit card, it's $280 savings.

    Also, 2 Day shipping is free.

    And Amazon.com probably has these in stock because it was not taking pre-orders (Verizon's website is not shipping until May 4th for orders today). Correction: NOT. See below.

    And if all that is not enough, if you are a California resident, you don't pay sales tax on Amazon orders. With sales tax at between 8.25 and 10.75 percent depending on the county-- and on full retail prices of $529.99 and $559.99--, that's a savings of an additional $90 to $117.

    So you could be saving upwards of $435 if you live in California, plus free 2 day shipping.

    Unfortunately, Amazon does not have these in stock. Earliest possible arrival date with 1-day shipping is May 11-12 (as per my order receipt).

    I just ordered my DInc off Amazon, got it in 2 days. Free two day shipping, no tax, was $149. Couldn't get it for $99 cause I wasn't opening a new line. Amazon FTW though!

    It's $99 for new indiv account
    $149 if you are upgrading from an indiv or family account

    What's funny, of course, is that even at $99 the Incredible and indeed all smartphones, are profit-makers for their manufacturers and distributors. When Verizon had them at $199 plus a two year contract, it was like finding a gold mine for that company.

    What's the typical monthly service charge for a smartphone like the Incredible? $70? How much do you think it costs Verizon to provide that service? $10?
