Do you know how long this deal will last?

it's free with a service plan and $79.99 for an upgrade with contract extension

So, it's not just send the $35, get the phone and choose to activate. Any deal is rebate after activation with an expensive contract cancelation penalty?

I've owned at HTC since the beginning (when Verizon owned it as a branded phone under the XV9600 or 9500 names). I recently actually upgraded to an HTC Touch Pro from Verizon... and I prefer it over the iphone variant which this Droid could be considered because I enjoy a full keyboard that actually has key responses and edges... I do not do well with a flat keyboard. I've had no problems with MY version of this HTC variant... battery life has been reasonable (save keeping your bluetooth off when not in use) and issues with learning how to turn it off w/o yanking the battery in older models.

If you complain about the misleading landing page (which says FREE with no asterisk) you might get them to waive the $35 activation.

Bunnymasseuse, you have no idea what youare talking about. Verizon never owned HTC. The XV9600 is an LG device that came out last year. If you were referring to the XV6900, that would be the HTC Touch which came out late 2007.
HTC is a Taiwanese company that has been making Windows mobile devices since 2002 and makes variations of many devices to be offered as OEM branded phones by any of the carriers. In 2009, HTC's focus is going off Windows mobile and onto the Google Android platform. They will still be the premier hardware manufacturer and Microsoft Partner for the Windows Mobile 7 units to be unveiled shortly.
Your Touch Pro has nothing in common with or nothing to do with the Droid phone being offered in this deal. Your comments are completely irrelavent. Free with activation is an excellent price for this phone.

Verizon has free activation on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only!

skidpalace,
Verizon had a XV6700 which I owned. It was the pre-cursor to the XV9600 you mention made in 2007 (which I did not buy) and then I upgraded to the HTC PRO. My bad, yes, they never "owned" the product, but I should have been clearer to identify it was "branded" for and by Verizon. It’s not like I was going out to a website for or by HTC to purchase any accessories for it. As far as I’m aware, it was only made or created in conjunction with Verizon here in the US (I don’t know of any affiliation with other countries and service providers) thus saying they owned that phone/object and style from the manufacturer for selling and promoting.

I'm sorry my notes weren't helpful to YOU in particular, good thing I wasn't writing my response to or for only one person (save what I'm writing right now).

If someone liked the ability for the keyboard extension and not one on the face, then yes, this would not be a good option for them.

@viperciara: But that is only through the Verizon website, not 3rd party
