Verizon to launch Motorola DROID 4 on Friday; Bogo promotion to start on Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX
As expected, Verizon is launching the Motorola DROID 4 on Friday for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. What was not expected are the promotions that Big Red is debuting on Friday. For example, if you like the Motorola DROID RAZR or its big batteried (did we just invent a new word?) brother the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, you can buy one of either model and get a second unit for free.

"But wait, there's more" as they say in those annoying television commercials. Big Red is offering up double the data with 4GB of 4G LTE service going for $30 per month with any smartphone purchase. And if you finally are ready to trade in that LG Voyager or LG Dare that you have been sporting since the Bush administration was in power, Verizon is giving away $30 gift cards in its stores for those willing to part with their old featurephone and move on up to a smart one. Finally, you can take $100 off the price of a 4G tablet with the purchase of a smartphone and a signed 2-year pact.

It sounds like Big Red customers have plenty to think about in the next few days, especially those with an upgrade burning a hole in their pocket.

Sh¡t, I may just add a line to get a free RAZR™; too much of a good thing is never enough!

no upgrade for me but I was able to trade my Droid 3 all the way up to a Razr so if I put my mind to getting a Droid 4 I'm sure I can make it happen! >:)

not to mention a good dual-core processor. either this or a Droid 4 will be my last phone for a while. i'll be thinking about a portable tablet in a month or so, probably a Xyboard 8.2

"you can buy one of either model and get a second unit for free." is the second unit must activated as well? or i just get it as a spare phone?

you have to use 2 upgrades, activate another line with a 2 year contract or start a new account with 2 lines to get a second device free.

it's not going to do any good for users with single line then.

So the bogo don't include the Droid 4? Guess my wife will have to wait. I am looking at the Droid 4. Besides, she would like the Droid 4 over the Razr since she has a Droid 2.

you probably won't have any problem getting them to do it. Verizon's BOGOs are usually equivalent based.

Honestly for two phones a month your looking at probably $150 a month. $69.98 for 700 minutes of talk, and add a line is $10 and two data plans $60, and then all the fees and tax. That is a lot of money a month, i will still stick with T-mobile i guess i pay $100 for two smartphone plans. Not the best carrier but not the worst either.

So, where's this BOGO option again? I guess it's not up yet??? I've been itching to use my upgrade discounts. Come on VZW, don't leave me hangin'!

Figured it out... you have to have both phones in your cart, and towards the end of the order process, the discount will show "FREE" on the extra phone.
