How can I get this without going into contract with Verizon at this price. Any way to just pay off for the phone at this price.

Cool. Thanks. Ordered one for our newborn son. I'm hoping this will work

I believe you need to go into contract basically paying for a month or less of service. You can terminate the contract as early as 15 days. The $192 will be billed to you at that point.

Consider up to $70 in taxes depending on where you live + $30 activation fee + month or partial month of service. That's $100+ added to your price. Still might be worth it.

Hmmm. Not sure that this is the way it works. As far as I know, you're on the hook for the full retail cost, and a bill credit is applied to your account each month to bring the cost down to $7.99/month. If you cancel early, you'd owe the full retail cost minus one month's bill credit. Plus the Early termination fee if you're in a contract ($350 I believe). So you'd be stuck with $1150 in costs for that phone.

I could be wrong, though. Obviously, if you can buy a $800 phone for $200, it's a great deal. Sell it on eBay, rinse and repeat every month, and you'll be rich. I highly doubt that this would work though. Neither Best Buy or Verizon are in the business of losing money.

  Really! A new born looking at a cell phone..

Does this deal only works if there's a stock in your local store?

Also, does anybody know if opening payment plan for new device means a new credit line against my credit history?

It will definitively work to irradiate him.

 The last line under product features states "Early termination fee of $350." I don't see how that applies on a no-contract plan but feels shady that they give themselves/Verizon that option by making it part of the purchase agreement (e.g., applying it to early termination of payment plan).

Are you guys sure if you terminate it after 15 days, you will only need to pay $192? I see the fine print: "Total Sale Price $191.76. Total Price $792.00. Savings are deducted off the full total price of the device and are reflected in reduced monthly payments over the life of the device."

  You can't get the "sale" price without also entering into a 24 month contract with Verizon. Nobody gives $800 phones away for $192, unless they can make a profit via a locked-in contract.

Unclear terms + OP signed up just to post this deal + Verizon = No deal for me.

I'm sure in the end this either signing up for 2 year contract for service with ETF fees that will be more than buying the phone outright or it is a purchase plan where the discounted is applied each month and the full remaining balance will be due when you cancel service. Either way I highly doubt you end up with the phone for $200 without continuing service for the 2 years.

For some reason I highly doubt someone from Verizon or Best Buy, the only two groups that could benefit, signed up at Fatwallet to pump the deal.

Bottom line is if you are eligible for an upgrade, this was a GREAT deal!!
