    I think it is $60 unless you get the Black Tie service in which case it is $30. At least that was the price with my iPhone4 that I am am exchanging tomorrow.

    My Best Buy called today with my notification 'cuz I pre-ordered. I told them I had to use an annual upgrade to buy the TB because my NE2 date was in May, and I asked if they could sell on an annual upgrade. The girls said "I think so but it will cost more". I asked how much more and she said $349 instead of $249. Does this sound right to anybody?

    I'd like to buy at Best Buy because of the Buyback program, but... I think she was wrong on two counts. 1) I don't think she can sell it to me on an annual upgrade (from what I've heard here) and 2) Even if she could sell it to me, the price change sounds bogus.

    Comments?

    Verizon is trying hard to keep people from buying from Wirefly. My VZW rep is giving me a $25 discount off my first months bill and a $50 mail in rebate from the $249.99 and waiving the activation fee. I am just stating the deal I was able to get from my VZW rep.

    Just went to my local VZW Corp store around the corner, the manager said they are opening at TEN, not nine. I asked if I could make an appointment or reserve one, he said no need to, just come in and grab one. I can't wait!

    Definitely worth pointing out that not all Verizon Corporate stores open at 9am or 8am. Here in Washington it appears they all open at 10am.
