We said it was bound to happen, but we’re seeing Verizon’s Palm Pixi Plus being sold for the new record off-contract pricing of only $45. Sure there are some basic smartphones out there priced for free, but of course...

Is a data plan needed to have this phone?

I've had verizon for a about 3 years now; I've never had a problem getting "data required" phones without a dataplan.
You have to insist on it, and keep on insisting on it, but it works.

I'd be careful buying from this website. Look at some unbiased reviews. They're terrible. Notorious for sending people the wrong items, things that didn't match the description or even nothing at all -- with virtually no customer support.

I tried to order via paypal, it didn't work. Which is stupid because my paypal works fine. So then I tried to order via my credit card that didn't work. I called they said they were closed so I emailed, no response. Yes looks like this deal is too good too be true. FAIL

i bought palm pixi plus phone on this website and i got them last friday and activated it immediately with no problem. i'm loving my palm pixi plus. my last phone was droid and it's getting really buggy lately and my contract end in july. so for the mean time, i'm using the palm pixi. different os but i love it and might even consider getting pre3. by the way, it took a looooong time to be delivered. it was 2 weeks for me. so good luck everyone.

were you required to get a $30 data plan? did you have an option for a $15 one?

I purchased this phone two weeks ago from Daily Steals. It's also been on Icemonkey.com and a few others. After reading some of the reviews for the website, I was skeptical, but tried it anyway.
I received the phone about 10 days (6 business days) after buying it. It was brand new, and met with the description on the site. I have nothing but good things to say about the phone. I wasn't expecting anything special, I just wanted a bridge device to take me from my crap ENV3 to the Merge, or potentially the iPhone 5. Basically, I bought a good amount of time while 4G moves into my area (in DEC 2011) and the Dual Core/4G phones are released.
It is exactly what the reviews say. I was extremely impressed, as the only smartphone I'd owned was a Samsung Omnia for two weeks, before I threatened to leave Verizon if they didn't replace it. The Pixi reboots randomly (about 2-3 times per day), and has crappy battery life (I keep it plugged in at work),
While the website's correspondence was terrible (I received no shipped email), the timing and execution of the transaction was fine. I was able to add the 150MB for $15 plan after activating the phone, though I've blown through about 80 MB in 1.5 weeks.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend it. My younger brother called me tonight on his way to Verizon to buy the iPhone 4, and I convinced him to get this one and wait for the 5, or something else. It is still postedonhttp://bensoutlet.com/ for $49.99 which is $5 less than I paid two weeks ago. Go for it!

I got an email today from daily steals telling me they were sorry they couldn't place my order and asked me what the issue was. When I emailed "max" my response I have not heard back. Anybody know where I Can find this phone I really want it. I checked bensoutlet.com - icemonkey.com - and dailydeals.com and no one has it, any ideas?

I just bought it on Amazon for $54.99. I can't remember who the seller was but it's "fulfilled by Amazon," meaning you can get their free shipping option. Seems like it'll be a fun phone to tinker around with.

I found the Palm Pixi smartphone even cheaper. It kind a suspicious that on eBay.com, Amazon.com orwww.Cheap-Phones.com it goes for less than $33 and no contract. I didn't find negative reviews about this particular model. Why is it cheaper than a Palm Centro by the way? I thought that the Palm Pixi was a successor of the Centro, with new design, faster processor and better features. Why is it so cheap then?
