    Currently i have the LG Dare. Before the Inc came out i thought i only wanted the Droid and nothing else. Well that changed really quickly after i saw the Inc. I went to the VZ store and the guy told me i could switch to the Droid right now and get the deal where you can try it out for 30 days, then return it. I thought this only applied for the Inc, nope it works for the Droid also. Plus i get the buy one get one free on the Droid. Now i get to play with the Droid until the Inc comes out. Its a pretty sweet deal for me. This doesn't necessarily help people who already have a droid and are waiting for the Inc, but i think its cool that they allow you to do that.

    I did the same thing, but by accident. I bought a moto droid, then found out about the (at the time rumored) incredible while searching for applications a couple days later.

    You realize that you will have to return both Droids if you return one, right? Otherwise you default to having returned the free on and not getting any money back. Also, there is a $30 restocking fee. I am not trying to rain on your parade (it is a really nice thing to be able to try a phone before committing), but the deal gets not as good when you consider the above stipulations.

    $30 for a smartphone rental isn't a bad deal. :)

    restock is $35. and it's not a rental. if you don't take it back w/in 30 days (calendar days, so watch out for 31 day months), or the phone isn't in "new" condition, no exceptions are made. It's not like you get a late charge, or they give you a pro-rated return credit.

    As far as purchases go... there's no better deal than the DROID, buy one... get one free... its the best buy for the buck right now. If your stress for money and want/need some smart phones (family), you can't go wrong .
