    Thursday I returned my Gnex and ordered the Rezound from amazon for $150 with an estimated delivery date of Dec 30th - Jan 3rd. This morning I get an email that the phone is backorderd for up to a month (new delivery date of Jan 6th - Feb 6th) and they want to cancel my order unless I approve the new delivery date.

    So I approved the new delivery date after I realized that if I try to order the phone now it would be $250.

    This is killing me, I am now stuck with my OG droid for a couple more weeks.

    The same thing happened to me. So frustrating. Though my estimated ship date is Jan 12 - Jan 31. I really want to cancel this order but I just can't suck it up and pay the extra somewhere else.

    Im hoping that the delivery estimates are exaggerated. I really dont think that it will take a retailer 3-5 weeks to get an item in stock.

    Rezound is now $199 on the Verizon website.

    Great for those of us that had their upgrade snagged by a family member and now need to return the favor.

    Costco has the rezound for 169.99. Great deal, IMO. They have a pretty good return policy and tax policy. :)

    Expecting delivery today from Verizon; used my last $50 "loyalty" credit, so paid $149.99. Hope it's worth it!

    Current Deal Roundup:
    Direct from Vzw - $199 new/upgrade/add-a-line

    Amazon - $149 new | $249 upgrade | $219 add-a-line

    Wirefly - $99 new | $179 upgrade | $99 add-a-line

    LetsTalk - $119 new | $179 upgrade | $179 add-a-line



    Seems odd that amazon would be so high relative to the corp pricing. Looks like they haven't changed their price since corp price dropped from 299 to 199. I emailed them, they responded pricing will remain the same for now.

    As of today, Amazon has reduced the price to $99 for new lines and $179 for upgrades, effectively matching wirefly...

    I have made up my mind, looks like the Rezound will be my next phone. I want to purchase online, however every place wants me to purchase a new plan and I want to keep the one I already have with unlimited data. Anyone know if you can get around this so I can save a few extra dollars?

    EDIT: Costco is sold out and backordered according to them just today when I went into the store.

    Verizon will let you keep your unlimited data. I ordered from Amazon. Their web order form let me keep my current plan, but forced me into choosing a new text plan. I bent over on that, but a call to VZW CS let me keep the now discontinued 250 text/$5 plan. During the call, I confirmed retention of unlimited data.

    Relax. Get the phone. It's well worth $150. At full price, I'm not as certain.

    I never get the option to keep my current plan on Amazon. Maybe I am not doing something correctly. I am clicking on the Upgrade/Renew radio button, but nothing more that I can see. Where can I get it for $150? $180 on Amazon right now. $170 at Costco, but they don't know when they will have them again.

    upgrades are more, 180. Amazon new/add-a-line price was 150 now its 99.

    After getting the phone just call vzw customer service they will set it so you keep your current plans...

    I got mine for $150 by using the $50 loyalty credit Verizon gives customers every 2 years. They no longer offer this benefit; this is my last credit :-(.

    It's back online at Costco $169.99. Better return policy and free shwag but pay full tax, at least here in CA. *edit* Amazon finally on the ball with this one and is now new for $80, upgrade for $160. Can't imagine it going much lower for quite a while, at least too long a wait for those of us with an OG Droid that requires daily resuscitation.

    I just purchased my Rezound for 49.00 on VZW website, upgrading from my Incredible. Originally upgrade device page said it would cost me 149, 199-50 loyalty discount. By the time I checked out, it charged me 49...listed price as 199 - 150 discount. Had a chat online with a gal that didin't offer an explanation, but said it was a good price. So it will be here tomorrow :D

    Just tried with my OG Droid, no dice. I only had a $30 loyalty discount, so my checkout price was 169.99. Wish it worked for me, I would be all over it.

    Are you anywhere near Chicago?

    I heard some time back if you upgraded from 3g to a 4g phone you would get a $100.00 off if in that region.

    Nope, in Panama city, FL, a non-4g area at this point. I was prepared to pay the 149, and was pleasantly surprised at the end result. That's why I chatted with online Rep to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. Obviously, I didn't ask a whole lot of "why" questions and she didn't offer that there was some hidden promo...just verified what I was seeing was correct before I purchased. I really can't offer an explanation for it though. Fedex says it will be here by 3 today...49 plus 13 for over night is all my card was charged.

    Edit* I added the receipt received via email for verification...maybe someone can use it to say WTF Verizon...

    I noticed that the Rezound was Free with upgrade on Wirefly this week until this past wednesday. I was gonna pull the trigger earlier this week but then i decided to wait. Now when i decided thats the phone i want they did away with the free and bumped the price up to $179.99. Does anybody know how often they have these deals on wirefly.com? Im cheap so i'll only get a phone if its free.

    added a line to get the phone, ported from att -

    got it at best buy
    priced matched amazon for 79.99
    got the $50 giftcard for signing up on the best buy site
    they applied the $50 gift card to the 79.99 for the phone.

    Not bad.

    If you were holding on to buy a REZ, might wanna hop onto vzw.com as the phone is 99.99 online right now...

    provided you are due for an upgrade.
