Verizon announces promotion cutting all Droid prices by up to $100 for new customers only
The other day we reported on a promotion that Verizon had started which cut the price of all Droid phones by at least $100. For example, we pointed out that the flagship Motorola DROID X was priced at $49.99 with a new 2 year contract. Both the HTC Droid Incredible and the DROID R2-D2 limited edition were cut in price to free. While all of the prices are enticing, the promotion is available for new Verizon customers only with a signed 2-year contract and also includes price cuts on "Certified Pre-Owned" handsets.

No ending date was listed for the promotion. Verizon would love to clear out as much inventory as possible of their older Android models to make room for the new Android models that offer dual-core processors and 4G connectivity. Some of the upcoming handsets include the Motorola Droid Bionic, the HTC Merge and the HTC Thunderbolt.

Phone arena fails to mention it's not just New 2yr customers, they also have to be signed up under an unlimited talk & text plan.

Merge is not a 4G device but it is an upcoming device.

I'm not sure what's worse...The fact that this is not true at all or the fact that Phonearena uses faulty resources for information. The days of New customers getting better promos than current customers ended YEARS ago!

I just called Verizon directly and this is not true. Verizon does not honor this. The customer service rep even looked this up on this website and talked to her manager and they still wouldn't do it. Bummer
