    I got the same deal... $100 NE2 and $100 instant rebate (or for re-upping my contract, which hd gone month 2 month). $99 + tax!:)

    And, I only have a 450 minute plan...

    Did mine actually over the phone with Verizon today.

    I was going to just do it online, but since I'm coming from a basic Motorolla flip phone, I had some questions on the pricing of the different data and text plans. When I got finished, the rep gave me his information and said to call him back once I was ready to order and he would just enter it in himself.

    Called him back an hour later after speaking to my boss (he's paying for the phone as well as increasing my pay slightly to cover the extra costs associated with the data and text plans! :D ), and just placed the order over the phone.

    Between the online discount and my NE2 (which had been up since June of last year), I got the phone for $158 and change once tax was figured in.

    Looking forward to moving up to a modern smartphone!

    I ordered it last night at 9PM Pacific. Total was $149.00! That's the most I've ever paid for a phone since this will be my first smartphone.

    This seems like a change in online policy with VZW. I am an "account manager" and when I ordered last night I had no problems at all. But today when I went to check the status, I got the same page that you did. My grandfather made me a manager to do all that stuff for him, guess it's moot now.

    This is an online forums community for people who love smartphones--specifically, Android smartphones. People get excited over the phones and post stuff. Is it cool? Not even a little bit. Is it geeky? Completely. Would most people mock our obsessions? Yes. So, we shouldn't be mocking eachOTHER. It's part of what happens. It happens on AndroidCentral, it happens on Crackberry (WWAAYYY more there, you shouldv'e seen it when the Storm first came out!). It will always be this way.

    take with you what you want, and leave the rest.

    How'd everyone get theirs so cheap!

    Just pre-ordered mine and it was ~$250 after taxes.

    $199 for the phone + ~$50 on taxes. My NE2 isn't until August, so maybe that's why? I didn't get any other credits :(

    This is exactly my point man. Don't rehash information that you think I don't know or think I'm not aware of. If we all pre-ordered the Incredible today, I'd say we're all overly obsessed with the phone.

    I don't know about Best Buy, but I can definitely tell you VZN DOES do 1-year contracts. The 1-year with VZN for the DI is $269.99--the Best Buy pricing should be somewhat the same right now.

    Thanks for not taking my comment too seriously, I was just messing with you. :)

    I know what you mean about people updating their Facebook and Twitter constantly ("I just got out of the shower, that felt great", next tweet: "Sitting on the bowl squeezing one out, big Mexican lunch today", next tweet: "I feel ten pounds lighter, ahhh").

    Glad to hear you got the Incredible ordered, good stuff.

    I gave up on their site and went to my7 local BB this morning. I asked the clerk after asking me if she could help me, "I'd like to pre-order the HTC Inc on Verizon please" and she looked at me and said "you wanna do what?" :D

    Long story short I put my 50 bucks down, got my gift card (which can go towards the purchase of the Inc), and she said the computer is showing deliv date of 4/23 and she would call me when the truck gets in. I said "cool thanks." I'm excited I'm coming from the Eris w/ v2 of 2.1 leak which has been very solid for me. Thx to this forum for all the good reads :)

    Ordered mine a VZW online at 8am on 4/19. Too excited about this phone. I had been holding out for a Nexus One on Verizon but that doesn't seem like it is ever going to happen. DI is a better phone anyway so I am happy but sooooo anxious for the 29th to get here.
