    I just saw on MyVerizon that the Curve price has been reduced from $149.99 with a 2 year contract to $99. That doesn't include any NE2 discounts or anything else.

    Is this right? I mean, it has to be, since it's on the website today.

    It happpens on all phones! i think if there's a phone you really want wait a few months (even 6-8 if you can stand it) and you'll most likely get a good deal!

    i got my curve for 104. My other line is out of contract and i got a flyer that lists the curve for 50 to upgrade.

    Phones always drop in price every few months after they have been out for a while.

    As far as NE2 being involved, I would think that price is on 2 year contracts only. Nothing to do with NE2.

    'Tis true.

    Well, I'll find out all about it when my Curve arrives in 1-2 business days, since I just ordered one. I figure this price reduction is about the best one I'll see for a while.

    Hmm that sucks, I just ordered mine yesterday and had to pay 50 bucks. Couldve been free. If I called CS, is it possible to get that 50 back?

    depends really if your NE2 was 50 or 100. If it was 100, I would investigate it

    Go to one of their corporate retail stores with your receipt, they'll hook you up right away. Basically they process it as a return and new purchase.

    I noticed the reduction in price last night online. I'll be upgrading to the Curve on the 6th when my NE2 discount is available. I should be able to get this for free after the 6th. yehaa

    Dang...should have waited a week. Do you think they will match the new price if the phone is a week old?

    If you take your receipt to a store or call CS, they should as you most likely have 30 WFG.

    ok this is going to sound wierd and there is probably no way to do this but....
    I just got my pearl in May of this year and i really love it but when i got it I was really looking into getting the curve but it wasnt out at the time. It came out the day after i got my pearl and i didnt want to go thru the hassle of exchanging it. But now that the curve price has been reduced, I was wondering if there is a way to do this now. TO get the curve for the NE2 price even though i am no where near and upgrade. I am currently on my parents family plan so I cant start my own plan as of yet(turn 18 in 2 months though) N then i can sell my pearl for bout 120 or so( some minor scratches). If any one knows a way to have verizon allow this please I would love to hear about some ideas or any known ways to accomplish it.

    Thank you

    If one of the other lines on the account the account qualify for an upgrade, you can do it. Upgrade the other line, then transfer it to yours. Other than that, most likely not going to happen.

    Not necessarily - we know the Thunder is on its way, and most likely the Javelin as well, plus any other smartphones Verizon might be releasing soon (HTC, Samsung and Palm all have new products coming down the pipe as well.)

    negative!

    thunder wont be out till late oct/early nov at the earliest

    edit: august is the 2nd busiest month of the year for retail cell phone sales. (back to school). hence the price drop of the phones.

    I too got my Curve 8330 10 days ago, when I emailed CS about a price guarantee, they tried to tell me I already got it for $99 (this was due to my $50 reduction in new-every-two discount). I am still trying to explain to them that I am deserving of the $50 additional credit.

    Wish me luck and Hi to all! I have been lurking here for a couple of weekst rying to earn all I can about Blackberry Curves and everything else that goes along with it.

    First off welcome to CB.

    How much did you pay for the phone whe you got it? It is better either to take receipt to a store, or call CS. do not email agaon since this did not work the first time.
