Free Aria with Upgrade or New Contract
Guys, I just found out that Wirefly is giving the HTC Aria away with a new contract or upgrade. I cant see the website because I am at work but other sites are now mentioning it so go check it out if you are interested.

I noticed this yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. I figured I would have to wait a few months for it to be free on contract, and it looks like I can upgrade to Arias for myself and my wife free while sticking with the same level of minutes etc that we currently have.
I know wirefly has an ETF like fee that kicks in if you don't maintain a certain level of service plan, but I don't imagine that being too much of a problem since we've had this plan for over 2 years on our w580i's, which we also got through wirefly a few years back.
Are there any other catches to this offer? Anything else I should know?
I haven't actually held one of these phones yet, and my wife needs to see one too before we order, but I'm doing my homework.

I ordered from Free Cell Phones with New Cell Phone Plans - Shop Deals from Wireless Carriers - Wirefly.com Yes I could have ordered just one phone, I needed 3. I was able to keep my old plan just as I had it before. I just renewed my contract for two years to get the phone for free. I'm not sure what a fan discount is sorry. The only thing is you have to learn to say no alot. They will try and sell you all kinds of stuff, cases, insurance, screen protectors, car chargers, ect.
Only draw back is you can't downgrade your services for the first 181 days or you will have to give them $300 dollars. Other then that you can get the phone/s for free.

Hi, Im Glen new to this Forum and soon to be new To HTC Aria and Android OS...........
I was very surprised to see the FREE offer with Wirefly and also saw the same offer with Letstalk.com. Not sure which site may be better to order from but I think I will go with Wirefly since others members have had success with them. Thanks !

I just called Wirefly and the Aria is free only on the primary line. If upgrading any other line it will cost $80. Also, you must select from the plans they have listed. I have a Family plan for $59.99 w/ 550 minutes and would not be able to keep it. I would have to choose one from their list which the lowest was $69.99. So it would cost me $10 more per month. They did say that I could switch back to my old plan after 181 days. It looks like all these third party places that offer the phone for free will be the same.

Just got my aria from wirefly and am very happy with the service. Signed a new contract with AT&T and all went well. Got here in 2 days so it was fast. The only draw back is the 181 day thing where you cant downgrade any services or use the phone on another line of service but that wont be happening because I am happy with my purchase.

And, yes, you nailed it, the only "drawback" is the 181-day requirement, which isn't really a big deal considering the savings we offer. The vast majority of people don't downgrade their rate plans or features, unless they grossly overestimated the amount of minutes and data they use at the time of purchase.
If you need anything, be sure to post or PM me, and I'll be happy to help out.
