    It says 199 with 2year activation, any confirmation on what the price will be without a contract? I'm estimating an extra 200 so... 449? Or maybe 499?~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    My best guess is $499-$519 for full retail.

    question...

    when i look at my new every two contract it says the following...

    Annual Upgrade available for My Verizon customers

    You can get a new phone every year with Annual Upgrade. Sign up for a 2-year agreement on a calling plan of at least $49.99 and you can purchase a new phone at its promotional price through My Verizon every year with a 2-year renewal (upgrade fee may apply).


    so.... i upgraded in june of this year... the new every two lets you upgrade 4 months early.... so feb 2010 i get the new every two..... with a $100 credit.

    The annual thing intrigues me... Would i be able to upgrade feb 2009 at the promotional price at whatever the storm is going for at that time?

    Of course there will probably be a 200 dollar upgrade fee as well knowing verizon. :cry:

    I work at verizon dealer, since you upgraded in june the earliest you'll be able to upgrade is june of 2009, and your NE2 would be available 8 months after next june. The upgrade fee is 35 bucks.

    You might be able to help me out. I don't think I quite understand the way the NE2 works. I got my phone back in September of 2007. My NE2 is available in May of 2009. If I wanted to get the new phone, does this mean I have to wait until May of 2009 to get the 2 year plan price or can I some how upgrade or extend my plan another two years and get the discounted price?

    Why does every other carrier sells their devices cheaper than att?
    Can anyone tell me.

    That is an outstanding price for the storm.

    its obvious that verizon is going for a multi level attack.

    First defense:
    The 200 dollar price matches up with the iphone so it will retain customers thinking of migrating to at&t.

    Second Offense:
    The $200 price will bring in new customers who might of always thought of the blackberry as just a "business" phone.

    Keep in mind I am still waiting to see what the resellers sell the storm for for the holiday season.

    Best buy just announced a huge loss last quarter. Will they go for a volume blow out and sell the storm for lets say $99 with mail in rebate?

    As long as you are on a plan of 59.99 or higher and are the primary line on your account then you will be able to get the storm at its 200 price after rebate, you will be charged a 35 doller upgrade fee. So your new contract will be until november 21 2010 assuming you get the storm on its release date.
