Verizon knocks a third off Galaxy Nexus – just $199
According to Verizon’s site, a brand new Samsung Galaxy Nexus with a new 2-year agreement will now only cost $199, making it the same price as the DROID 4, LG Spectrum, and the HTC Rezound. Unfortunately, those of you looking to pickup this device contract free aren’t privy to the same savings. The full retail price remains at $649.99.
We reached out to a Verizon Wireless sales associate via their website to find out if those who purchased the device that are still within the 14-day return period would be eligible for a price match. We were informed that we would have to return the device and repurchase it under the 14-day worry free policy and would be subjected to a $35 restocking fee. In short, if you purchased this device in the last 2 weeks, you can get back $65 after a lot of hassle.

actually i'd say the Razrs are better especially with ICS.

I don't know.. I installed ICS on my sister in law's RAZR last week and while it's definitely a big improvement I just can't get over the screen difference between the Nexus and the RAZR.

yeah, the HDSA is truly better but that Moto build quality and superb Moto radios are just too good to pass up. i'll probably get the Droid Razr HD later on for the better display and camera.

Considering that Verizon's other offerings are mostly from Motorola and a few LG device, saying it's the best isn't really saying much.

Moto's Flagship devices as well as HTC's & LG's Flagship devices...

Just means they were over charging for it from the start.

"only cost $199"
- i chuckle, not that great of a deal. (when amazon sells it for a lot cheaper).

Watch the sass Captain Sassy Pants. The fine print on Amazon Wireless's policy might make you think twice before buying.

Easy workaround is to have a store (like Go WIRELESS) price match Amazon's offer. It worked for me when I got the HTC Thunderbrick right after it came out. Paid $175 when it was retailing for $249. Doesn't hurt to try.

That is such an amazing deal. How nice of Verizon to charge $200 for a six month old phone that's already outdated in technology years.

other than the gaming department, the Nexus provides arguably the best user experience out of all phones out there.

Yeah......it's a good experience indeed, just can't make phone calls. Before you start to rattle, go to the vzw page and check the levels of complaints posted for the device.

dude...Verizon forums are full of whiny, dumb people. don't even look at those reviews.
17. oldmandaddy (Posts: 64; Member since: 01 May 2010)
still not low enought, should be not more than $99. Cause this phone used cheap plastic, pin tiles screen and cheap looking too. only one good thing is running ICS. Can't wait for next Nexus phone make by Motorola and run jelly bean. Go googles!
19. EclipseGSX (Posts: 1583; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
Motorola will never make a Nexus, sorry

needs a chance to make the next 1?

Actually, I've never heard of the price match being done the way you describe. Maybe the agent you communicated with is ill informed....simply call Verizon Customer Care and they can do the price match over the phone without a restock fee. It's quite simple...as long as you're within the correct time frame.

This phone sucks ass! I HATE the pentile matrix...makes the screen horrible. The phone reboots all the time, even while talking on the phone. Horrible signal problems! And now STILL waiting on a freaking upgrade 4.0.5!! sigh
