I'm really on the fence regarding the whole Droid vs N1 issue. I figure a good option is to get the Droid now and see how it works for me, and essentially decide if I need the physical keyboard or not. I've never had a smartphone before...

So, if I decide after 30 days I want the N1 (or ??) instead, I can just send back the phone and wait my 3 days before choosing a new phone. Correct?

And if I decide that I want the Droid, could I also send that back, wait the three days, then buy another one from Amazon and save myself $150? Or if I send it back am I locked into some sort of exchange?

Thanks!

Verizon Wireless' Worry Free Guarantee allows you to exchange your phone for a different device once in the first 30 days after activation. After 30 days, you cannot exchange for a different device.

I would have them start up another line of service for you then for the droid with a new phone number. Try that out for up to 30 days. If you like it, port the BB's number over to the new line and cancel the BB's line. If you don't like it, cancel the new droid's line and wait for something better to come along.

....

You know, not everyone has the money for the 350 ETF to just throw out the window.

that's not what I was implying. I should have more clearly stated "If you don't like it, cancel the new droid's line before the 30 days are up and wait for something better to come along."

Verizon's new $350 ETF is ridiculous. In fact, I'd recommend paying a little more for the handset upfront and getting a 12 month contract instead of being stuck for 24 months with that fee keeping you inline.

ETF still applies on the one-year contract...

You are correct. However, its a lot easier to make it through a 12 month contract! Plus you're eligible for subsidized upgrades at the 10 month mark. I don't know about you guys but personally, I can never stick with the same phone throughout a whole 2 year contract.
