I am going to order mine from Free Cell Phones with New Cell Phone Plans - Shop Deals from Wireless Carriers - Wirefly.com
They have them for $149.99. They are on back order at the moment but they will start shipping in about 3 weeks. If you are new to Verizon you can also get a Motorola Droid for $9.99. I am going to get the Inc and get a Motorola Droid for the wife.
I can't discourage you enough from this. I know I haven't got any posts/credibility on this- but I ordered through newegg for my family and it was a fiasco- they didn't request ports/new numbers from verizon, and have since dissolved their phone tech support.
I didn't know wirefly ran the newegg ordering, so when I ordered incredibles for my wife and I, I wanted to get the bing cashback. However, this was an even greater disaster. They failed to ship the phones, and when they arrived, once again there was no port request for our numbers. (Wait 48 hours- chat assistant says). Then they assigned my wife a number that was already in use (wiat 48 more hours, chat assitant says). Then, when we pointed that out, they changed it (after the requisite 48hr waiting period) to a number in the wrong area code. After another 48 hour wait, they said that it would take 48 more hours to fix our problem. Every time we contacted them (via the worlds worst chat client that constantly crashes and causes you to have to reconnect to a totally different person), they said we would have our problem resolved in 48 hours. Even speaking to a manager didn't help. Finally, we called verizon (this is two weeks into our latest wirefly disaster) and they fixed everything over the phone in ten minutes- but now wirefly is trying to charge us a $300 penalty for not making account changes through them. Not that I'm worried about havign to actually pay it- I can decline charges until my mouse finger goes numb- but it's just one more hassle.
I would rather pay the off-contract price and wait six weeks for shipping than to deal with wirefly again.
If you take one thing away from this
: wirefly doesn't deal directly with verizon, has NO phone support, and the chat center is located in India with the worst english speaking support assistants of any company I've ever dealt with. They only repeat company policies and have no real help to offer, and lack the authority to make any changes to your order or account. It may take you weeks of hassle and hours of frustration before you get your phones working.
Best buy and amazon have these phones disounted, and vzw is bound to have a BOGO soon (if not already). I would ask you to consider getting your phone somewhere else. Whatever you pay over wirefly's price will be made up in time, effort, and frustration avoided.
