    I think you should contact amazon wireless support. Dont think anyone is able to give you any answer as to why the price is that much.

    They bumped it up right after Verizon bumped their price to $249. Price only lasted about a week after introduction.

    You get to pay $50 more AND pay tax. But you will get it THAT day. Doesn't NE2 get you an additional $100 off?

    I live i CA and they charged me tax on my Incredible online last year (9.75% on FULL RETAIL PRICE!!) That's why I go to Amazon now. Still...if you get an additional $100 off for NE2 it might be worth going to V store.

    100$ for new every two? I get 30$ off of the discounted price.

    it works out to:

    verizon website wants 220 (pretax.. is there tax? with free shipping.),
    amazon comes out to 200 (pre tax/shipping, 245$ shiped/taxed)

    I have a phone in my cart there for $174.99 after I said it was a new individual plan. I'm not sure if there price is different for upgrades vs. new?
