    Went to the VZ store today to get a new phone for my son. I friend had broken his flip phone.

    My wife and I had talked about getting him a PDA phone (he wanted one) with data plan.

    After looking around, we decided on the Pearl, at 19.95 after rebate.

    While working with the in store sales rep, she noticed that my phone was a BB Storm. He asked when I had bought it (January), and told me she could backdate the BOGO and we could get my son a Storm at NO CHARGE.

    I had assumed that becuase I bought before the BOGO, I would not qualify.

    Needless to say, we walked out happy.

    Wow, that's above and beyond right there.

    Can't say I would have done it.. No offense, but your history w/ us would have had to been REALLY top notch!

    I'm delighted to see you had a great experience though. Thanks for being a VZW customer!

    I'm surprised the policy is only if you got it within 30 days.

    I think this is great. Guess what that does for verizon? Good public relations. He just posted a comment that hundreds will read.

    You know, so many times folks only take the time to post stuff about carriers when it's some sort of problem or frustration they are dealing with. Big props to you for taking the time to talk about your positive experience! I bet your son is super-jazzed over his new phone!
