    To upgrade thru verizon the Droid costs $199.99, thru Amazon Wireless only $109.99!

    AmazonWireless: Cell Phones and Plans

    Has anyone done this? Do you also get your New Every Two discount?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, Nazz: You will not get your NE2 discount unless you get your phone at a Verizon retail store (or by calling Verizon). You won't get the NE2 discount at any mall kiosks, either - It has to be done at a "Verizon Only" store.

    I ran into this myself when I upgraded to my Droid.

    the price just dropped too.. it was 149 for a upgrade last week.. I called verizon and im turning my girlfriends eris in on hardware problems today, having her use my omnia and purchasing the droid at amazon for 109 for her, once the droid comes in shes got it :) .

    thats what the lady at verizon told me to do to avoid restocking fees and get the phone for cheap.. cant beat 109 for the droid :)

    I just did this today. My NE2 was only $50, so I would have paid $150 for the Droid from Verizon. Saved myself $40 today!

    If you don't get your NE2 would this work by only doing a 1yr contract?

    Can't find a way to select only 1 yr contract.

    Anjoga, I'm in the same boat. So this is for real, for an upgrade? Amazon doesn't get you on the shipping or somewhere in the fine print, or try to "middle-man" your account?

    Go to Best Buy to get your NE2 and have them price-match this.

    Have you had luck with this? I generally can't get them to honor online ads.

    From the BestBuy website (price match FAQs):
    Does Best Buy match prices of Internet retailers?
    Best Buy does not match the prices of Internet-only retailers or the online only offers of our local retail competitors. If you find a local retail competitor honoring its own online prices, we'll match their price. Eligible items must be the same brand and model, and currently in stock at the local retail competitors store. For purchases made at BestBuy.com, please see our BestBuy.com Price Match Guarantee Policy.

    OK,
    This is my first post EVER. I have been creeping the forum on this site for weeks now. I cannot wait to get a Droid. My mind is made up. Problem is I'm not eligible to upgrade my equipment through Verizon for about a month. Then I saw this tread. Does anyone know if I can upgrade through Amazon regardless of my upgrade date with Verizon, or do I have to wait until I'm eligible??
