Now it's $99 !?!

Well dangit, I bought the Rezound just after Thanksgiving and at the beginning of Jan (I think) it went down to $199, now it's $99 (online price w/new 2year contract).  Good for those just now looking to upgrade, garbage for me.  I just wish Verizon had a better price matching policy if they are gonna drop the price this fast.

Yeah, it happens.  I tried to get an account credit the first time it dropped because I was still within the extended holiday return window (I had heard of others being successful with it) but no love.

And I paid over $300 for my Tbolt a year old for the choice of a one year contract. If it is free now, sounds like EOL to me. Explains the cheap cases and car dock I saw in the store last week.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Yeah, probably making room for the new (possibly quad-core) phones that will be coming up soon.

It sucks but smartphones are outdated by another with better specs about 2 months (or less) after hitting the market!

I'm just surprised because, as of yet, the Rezound IMHO is still the best phone on Verizon spec-wise.

I'm sure there will be something coming out in the next 3 months that will blow your socks off and you'll want to upgrade to

Of course, but i was able to survive for 2 years with my Eris and hopefully will be able to do the same with my Rezound.

Clearly you have never watched phones before.

They always come out expensive... $299, $399 etc.... After a month or so, they drop $100, after another month or so they drop to $99.  Anytime there is a major holiday coming up after that, they drop to $free or near there.

I you want the hot new device, you pay for it, and they know that.

I wanted the phone, had an upgrade since Dec 28th, but I waited until it dropped to $99... so I didn't pay the extra $200

I also made sure that root was available and in this case an unlocakable bootloader.  there are also a bunch of roms available now though I plan on staying near stock until ICS is released.

Now you know.. next time you can decide what level of payment you want to do.
