Pretty good, controversial title... huh? I was wondering if Verizon is actually able to turn people away from buying the phone at full retail price. I remember before when the Droid X was about to release that some Verizon stores around my area (in CA) told me that they wouldn't be selling the phone to people who want to buy it at full price at first. Thankfully, I didn't have to deal with them since I bought my Droid X at Walmart (for a lot cheaper too). Now that this phone is releasing and there's no Walmarts around me, I'm a bit worried that Verizon would actually say No again. Are they actually able to do that though? Is it really lawful to refuse to sell an electronic device to someone just because they'd prefer to sell it to someone that is upgrading or entering a new contract? Perhaps I could just tell them that I sold my old phone so now I'm phone less in NYC?
