Amazon has the full compliment of DROID devices from Big Red — the DROID Incredible, X, 2, and Pro – on sale for a single penny for those opening a new line of service. The offer is good now through November 22nd and includes free activation.
Picked up a Samsung Fascinate for $30, free shipping, and I have an existing account. They're on sale BF for $1 at 2 places I saw, but this is a really nice phone! Saves waiting in line at Best Buy.

Is anybody selling Droids at a decent price (now or for BF) that are available with the $15 data plan instead of the $30 plan?

Thanks OP and green for you! However, people should know that.. Amazon always has good phones for a penny with 2 yr contract, including some of the DROIDs, at least they did when I checked a couple weeks ago.
This is not a thread crap, I'd just like to know which of these DROIDs are newly discounted? I am seriously considering pulling the trigger and getting one. Anyone know if any of these ship with the new version of Android.

This may not be the best deal always. I went to best buy today, they were selling droid X for $99 but the monthly data plan has a $15 option (for 200MB), In Amazon the minimum data plan is $30. So if you want this plan you will end up paying $260 more over the contract period

Thank you for pointing this out. I think there are a lot of people out there (like me) who want a smartphone so they can check email on the go and look up phone numbers etc. on the web as needed but who don't want to surf 24/7 and thus don't want the unlimited data plan at $30/mo.

Just got 2 Samsung Captivates for ATT for $0.02 cents. We both were able to Upgrade to our account.

Comparison with Virgin and Samsung Intercept Android phone: Virgin + Intercept - unlimited minutes + unlimited data(i think = 2gb) is $60 per month - this android phone is $250 - total: 250 + 60*24 = 1690 for 2 years (unlimited minutes and internet) - Virgin runs on sprint, which is not so great when compared to Verizon
Droid + Verizon: - Unlimited minutes and web = $110 + approx $10 taxes - this android phone = free - total: 120 * 24 = $2880. - So basically you pay extra $1190 over 2 years for a better carrier and slightly better phone running the same OS. - verizon's cheapest plan which is 450 minutes amounts to approx $1800 for 2 years!
Is it only me who thinks that the plans from verizon are damn expensive? I understand 10% to 20% premium for better network, but 1690 in comparison to 2880 makes me think! For the saved money one can purchase another phone and another line. Here is one other thought: Verizon: one Android phone(Droid) + 1 line unlimited minutes and data 2 yrs = $2880 Virgin: two Android phones(Samsung Intercept) + 1 line unlimited data and minutes + 1 line unlimited data and 1200 minutes = $2900!

$15 for 150 MB.
I just bought a Droid Incredible for $80 from Amazon Wireless a month ago. E-mailed them and they gave me a price adjustment, which in this case is basically a refund. Thanks Amazon!
The $15 data plan is available but I could not select it on line, I had to call Verizon customer service and switched both a Blackberry 9650 and the new Verizon Droid to $15 data plans.
Yep, Verizon is more expensive than everyone. If you compare minutes and features, Verizon is always the most expensive option. It's the price for having the best service. But there are special deals and corporate discounts which help bring down the price.

I don't see how getting a phone through Verizon vs Sprint is a deal at all. Sprint is only $69/month for unlimited everything. The same for Verizon would cost me $30 more a month which would equal $720 extra for the length of a 2 year contract. I would rather buy an EVO for $99 and save myself $380--> (the extra 4G $10 fee for two years also deducted).

Was just at Sprint store last night, Samsung Epic and Evo were $249 and $199 respectively, after $100 rebate. Both phones on Amazon wireless are $99.99, same monthly plan rate, $36 activation with Amazon.
I'm really surprised there is that much difference in phone cost.
Once my wife decides which phone she wants it will be bought thru Amazon.

Nope, still active for $0.01, though the Incredible is back ordered.

cyberpitstop said: If you want to add a line or upgrade don't forget WalMart has $100 GC We did the Droid X for Verizon last night and made $10
WalMart's website says you need to sign up for a $30 data plan -- is that really true or have they just not updated the site to say you can also do the $15 plan?

ordered a droid x ($70) and 2 fascinates ($0.01 each) on nov 27th. it was the best deal involving family plan and multiple smartphones i could find at the moment; other places (Dell, Wirefly, etc.) had better deals on the droid x but they were charging $100+ for non-primary line smartphones.
the expected shipping date when i ordered it was jan 11th, which i was bummed out about. but i just got an email that said it shipped out today and i should be expecting delivery dec 1st.
