    With a new line activation. I wonder why the Storm is so cheap and the Bold so expensive in comparison?

    I think it's because the Storm had a very bad start. I bought a Storm yesterday and here in Germany the prices without plan are nearly the same. I will try the Storm and hope it will fit my needs.

    Not a Troll dear Now are you going to blame me for Amazon selling the phone for $99? 80% off usually means they are trying to get rid of them to make room for a new model. I think the Lady at Verizon was spot on saying the 9530 has been discontinued for a newer WiFi model and these clearance and two for the price of one promos reflect just that.

    ohh man here we go again .. the 9530 won't be going anywhere for a LONG time . the BOGO sale ? vzw used it to get more customers . remember they are gettin not 1 but 2 lines when someone falls for that .

    amazon $99 ? doesn't matter because again vzw is making money if i am correct .

    what i don't understand is the sudden interest that u have taken in the storm . i think u might be considering buying one for yourself . ( if not a couple for the whole family )
    i don't blame u; imho it is completely worth it

    And now the troll starts ANOTHER thread.

    As I told you in the other thread it is their way of matching VZW's BOGO sale on BB's, and wont stay that way. Samsung Omnia (and other Samsung phones) is the same way.

    Why? I have no problems with AT&T service or the IPhone both seem to work well together. With AT&T you get rollover minutes its the best deal, I have over 5,000 minutes banked off of my 900 minute pkg. AT&T works great with my Bold also. The rates are reasonable as well.

    Well the reason for the cheap price is that if you cancel within 181 days of the activation of your service, you will be subject to a charge of up to $250, plus tax.Verses 175 e.t.f. from verizon.

    I think it is Hilarious the people that think rollover is the best thing ever. If I give you an abundence of something that you already don't use enough of, does that really help you out? It's not a bad deal by any means, but it's not as great as people make it out to be. You can pay the same price with VW and have 5 Friends and Family members, then I bet you wouldn't even come close to your 900 minutes, and you won't be on the second crappiest network available.......................

    Ditto, and got free accessories too.

    They are trying to move these phones because sooner then later the Storm 2 will be out and I'm guessing they have more inventory then they planned on having. This phone got me to switch, I like it so far, although I upgraded the SW to .99 when I got home, then .109 two days later.

    Dude the Storm is selling like hotcakes no matter where you get it. VZW has already sold over a million of them (huge for a cel phone). It's their way of competing with VZW's BOGO sale. The Storm 2 is at least a year and a half off if not more.

    True, about a year out from what I hear, but we all know how "from what I hear goes". The bottom line is they have numbers to hit for exclusivity, that and the fact that even at B1G1 they are making a killing on the plans associated with the phones.

    It isn't going anywhere soon bottom line, they are just pushing these phones and stealing IPhone users, thats about all..................
