Verizon rumored to be offering DROID loyalty program
posted by Alan F. / Sep 29, 2011, 10:58 PM
A quick perusal of comments from our own loyal readers shows that many of you are beginning to feel let down by the constant rollout of new Android models just weeks apart, each phone offering improved specs and newer features. Recently, Verizon has launched the Motorola DROID 3 and the Motorola DROID BIONIC and it is speculated that the carrier will soon offer the HTC Vigor, the Ice Cream Sandwich flavored Google Nexus Prime and the Motorola DROID RAZR. Down the road we can see the Motorola DROID 4 being readied for an eventual launch.
So how will Verizon bribe its faithful? According to Droid-Life, this is just in the early stages now. But with all of those high-end Android phones coming soon in time for the holiday season, we would expect some announcement from the carrier in the not too distant future.
i had this problem today i had to upgrade otherwise i would lose my unlimited data b/c i had a feature phone.. and they were saying i had to upgrade today.. i ended up getting the bionic but i really want the HTC Vigor oR NExus prime : X! i better be able to take my phone back to get one of these two... or i should just complain and switch carriers................

I don't understand how you felt forced to upgrade, you could've put an used and cheap smartphone from Craigslist just to wait for the phone you want and I'm between these 2 bad boys as well if the Prime comes with LTE I'm sold! Otherwise the Vigor is my next phone

Nice Thumprwtfkever.. Yeah, I disagree with Taco's bashing of Andriod all the time.. You however, are being a complete asshat. he came here and offered some pretty good advice to a guy.. and you come on and start trolling him.. lol.. then yu have the nerve to say he's going to cause trouble? LOL GROW UP and get out of your mom's basement. I'm all for giving Taco a hard time for his Andriod views.. but lets not attack the person. Immature.

i understand why you might think that based on what you know but i was calling him out on something he said to me in another discussion. he already had it coming. besides he went ahead and trolled here anyway. you know he's going to at some point everywhere he goes.

Really dude? Why make stuff up? If you have unlimited data on a feature phone and switched to a smartphone you would have to pick a tiered data plan anyway. That or you were mislead.

What happend with your phone? Was it unusable because of physical or water damage? You never have to upgrade if your not ready. No matter, call back and ask for a Certified Pre-Owned device. Yeah, it used but at least you don't have to use your upgrade. And there may be a few cheap smartphones you can use just until the Vigor comes out.

It's just Verizon's featurephone-to-smartphone upgrade incentive. $100 gift card deal ends today. That is all. Tempting, but I'd rather wait for a firm release date on the Vigor or Prime. I'll upgrade when there's something available that I actually want. Who knows, they might have a new incentive program then.

agree, i was paying the 30 bucks for 3g/4g even though i didnt have it but they wouldnt let me ... lol so i had to do it ! just cross your fingers that the hTC Vigor comes out oct. 13 so i can return the bionic and get it :D i would be sooo happy..... but i wonder if they will let me get the Vigor or Prime even after the 14 days!

No, they won't.. I HIGHLY suggest you keep your eyes peeled for a cheap blackberry on Craig's list. They are everywhere! Return your Bionic and add a blackberry to your plan.. you'll be set until the PRIME hits. You can then turn around and resell your blackberry and if you got a decent deal on it, you should get your money back on craigs list.
