This deal does require the data plan where as the posted deal for $10 does not.

@spithril: After looking closer, I think both require the data plan so the free deal is better.

verizon doesn't use sim cards right?...

@exqcme: No, they only use sim cards on select phones designed for international travel (GSM), such as the Samsung Saga.

Looks like both these deals come only with a pay-per-MB data plan, not a flat-rate data plan. At least, there weren't any unlimited data options shown on either site.

If you have not had a smartphone before you should know that switching to one will result in an additional $30 tacked to your plan for email/internet use.

If you're looking to get phones/plans for two people, you could consider buying a Droid, as you get an Eris for free. Of course, the Droid costs $200 with a plan...

My company is switching to Verizon and should be getting our new phones today. The basic deal is buy a Droid get a Droid Eris free. You do have to get a data plan with every smart phone. The Droid is better than the Eris with the real keyboard but also a few other buttons that make browsing easier. There is no deal on any site that you can get them for just 0-10$ for just the phone. I've been looking. All require the new plan sign up. They show the price low, then the buy without a plan option cranks it up to $300+ Both phones are great, the full Droid is way better and if you have the cash to get the full one DO IT. And yes, it will raise your bill a mandatory 27-30$ a month for the data plan.

In case any of you were wondering, if you already have Verizon, it would cost you $85 through Amazon for the upgrade. It would be cheaper to go through the VerizonWireless.com website, where it is $79.99. It is also better to go through the website in general than the store because instead of dealing with rebates, and rebate cards, you get the same after rebate price without having to deal with the waiting of rebates. So you don't have to wait around and you save yourself a couple of bucks tax (remember you are taxed on the pre-rebate price).

i went through the whole order, and got to where i input my address, and i feel like it is a scam. it asks for name/address/credit card # etc...but where it has your city/state/zip, it already has something entered (auburn university al 36849) and you cannot change it. anybody else smell somethin fishy with this?

There is a change button right next to where it says Auburn University on the first page when you click on the link. Alternatively, you can go straight to wirefly.com, find the phone, and you shouldn't have this problem.
