    Do you think the price will go down A LOT with the release of the Motorola Droid X ? I have my mind set on the Droid, so I want that one. Also, will Wireless Tether that comes with FroYo be free or will Verizon FORCE a data plan with that?

    The Droid can be purchased with a new 2 year activation relatively cheap now.

    I just saw it was $99.00 at my local Costco with 2 year activation, and it's $0.01 with a 2 year plan at Amazon.

    so If I buy it via Amazon, would I be able to use my annual upgrade to get the droid? & it isnt my upgrade, it is someone on my line though.

    if you're doing a tricky alternate upgrade, it's best to do it in a store somewhere. Best buy might have the ability to handle that transaction, and I know most premium retailers to.

    I don't think the Droid's price will drop too much with the x coming out. the lowest I expect to see it before it's EOL'd is maybe 99,99 at corporate stores/premium retailers. Though best buy was selling it for $25

    so I should try Best Buy then ?

    Depends on if they do alternate annual upgrades or not.

    I just know that if you're doing something non-standard with your account like that, going through third party websites is just asking for trouble. (though amazon isn't nearly as bad as letstalk or wirefly)

    Best Buy has the same thing as regular Verizon stores. They just aren't a Verizon store, but they have the same access what the Verizon Stores get. But their prices are just cheaper.

    Yeah, but is it going to get lower when the Droid X comes?

    The price of the Droid will probably go down a lot when the Droid 2 is released. It's rumored to be comming out next month and will have a 1ghz processor with 512mb of ram. I'd personally wait and just get the droid 2 but yes the droid is going to be replaced soon so the price should go down.

    eh, I don't really need a 1ghz processor & I like the design of the original Droid.

    Walmart has the droid for 48.88. I got mine there on a different upgrade and they didn't have any problem doing it.

    I agree with you. Also, there are rumors that the Droid 2 will have the variant if MOTO blur on it like the Droid X. I would prefer the stock Android OS than the MOTO blur.

    Cellstores.com has it for 19.99. Verizon still says 149.99. For $20 I might get one just to play with untill the Fascinate comes out.

    I'm just getting the Motorola Droid for now & then I'll take it back via 30 days when the Droid X comes back in stock. Think it's a good choice? :/
