    Default The "Just picked Up My New Droid Charge" Thread

    Just picked mine up from Best Buy. They wouldn't activate it for me, but tossed a SIM card into the box and when I got home I logged into my Verizon Wireless account and activated it online with no problem at all.

    I had to call a couple best buys before I found one that would sell it to me. Even then, they mentioned they weren't supposed to but since I had called and drove all the way out they would. So it's totally possible. Keep trying!

    UPDATE:

    Someone requested pictures of the media dock so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and try out the camera on the Charge.

    So here ya go...

    Yeah, but I expected that. I'm probably gonna pull down $450 for my Droid X with all the accessories I have for it. It's in great shape and I have just about every accessory someone could want for it.

    Good luck getting $450 for a Droid X even with all of the accessories. I haven't really seen them go that high on eBay. Give us some first impressions of the Charge. I'm looking at the TB but may consider the Charge.

    I know the prices. As far as im willing to go on the internet lol. The reason why they charge 699 or whatever is bc they usually mark up prices 100$ TO ACTUALLY MAKE MONEY.

    of course thats what i would do if i was selling things i would want to make money. Problem is who is going to sell the phone for 570. Is Verizon? Actually does anyone know what Verizon will be selling it for Retail?

    My guess is $659, my logic

    Incredible 2 $199 on contract
    Incredible 2 $459 (?) off contract

    Thunderbolt $249 on contract
    Thunderbolt $559 (?) off contract

    Charge $299 on contract
    Charge $659 (?) off contract

    I'm not sure what the off contract prices are but I'm too lazy too check..

    ok well sorry to be rude but i call BS on EVERYONE that states their using the charge. Iv done everything in my power(which is pretty large) to get mine activated and it wont program. Iv called customer support/ Agent support account managers EVERYTHING. It can be swapped in the system but not programed. So guess people are posting on a wifi network bc its not a Verizon network

    For some reason I always get way more than I expect. Not sure why. I got $300 recently for my wife's X and it was scratched to hell. I will definitely get at least $400 and like I said, hope to come close to $450.

    I have an extended Slim OEM battery, OEM Media Dock, OEM Dash Mount Dock, Brand New OEM Leather Case, and a couple of other small extras like extra Steinheil Screen protectors, etc.

    Mine is running on 4g, whoever sold yours to you didn't do everything he was supposed to do to it. That's just my guess because there's nothing blocking the charge from using the Verizon network.

    Call quality sounded fine to me, nice video, czm2000. I think the key for you was activating it through your My Verizon log-in. I'd look all over SoCal if I knew I could activate through My Verizon, but I am on a company plan and My Verizon is limted (can't activate etc).

    I know if I got lucky, and picked one up, I'd have to call VZW support, and they'd nix the activation.
