    I just pre-ordered the Moto Z2 Force from my Verizon Wireless (independent) store. I have had great experiences with them through the years.

    I was on a 6 GB preferred customer program and recently paid off my Droid Turbo 2.

    The Moto Z2 Force with UNLIMITED data and the same insurance covering possible water damage is the same as what I was paying.

    There is an absurdly attractive price from Verizon for the upgrade going on. If you are attracted to this device I recommend you check it out today.

    Delivery of mine is expected around August 10.

    (I told her I was there because I have never understood "Verizon arithmetic". She was having a similar problem with the data I showed her.)

    She worked it out. The website was assuming I was on unlimited. I now am again for the first time in MANY years.

    I preordered yesterday too. And I also paid off my turbo II early. There are a few things that I dont like about the z2 but I think that I can live with them for the Verizon price. One is the smaller battery although they claim that is a 24 hr life. That would be great. I also don't like the nano coating as opposed to water proofing. The free projector makes the deal a no brainer especialy since its a payment plan with no interest.
    This is the second time Verizon has surprised me with a good deal. I also went to unlimited data a few months back and its been great. Although it seems like they have been monkeying with my speeds while hot spotting but in all fairness they did warn that after 11gb of hot spot they would throttle.

    I am an avid wireless charger person and missed that in the Z2 Force. The $40 battery addition supports wireless charging and I have one on order. (Correction ... it is $80 and not wireless.)

    My strong motivation to upgrade to the Z2 Force was that it took 6 months for the 7.0 upgrade to make it to the Turbo 2.

    You can get the best of both worlds and get the Tumi battery mod with wireless charging. It's discounted right now to like $40 I think.

    Yup. The TUMI mod is $40 from Verizon right now, and a refurbished one can be had from Amazon for $48.99 with Prime shipping. Definitely seems like a better deal than getting the brand new one for $80.
