    So I am finally going to make the jump from Android to WP8! I'm going to get the 8X from Verizon but I'm buying it off contract to keep my unlimited data.

    With that being said, where can I get the best deal? I see that it's $549 through Microsoft. Any better deals out there?

    I also bought mine off contract for the same reason, and did the same research. It turns out that Verizon and Microsoft are selling the phone for the same price: $549. You might be able to find it on amazon, but it doesn't seem to be up on their site right now, but it was also going for the same price last time I saw it. I ended up just biting the bullet and going to the Microsoft store and picking it up there. One thing to note is that if you have a current phone on Verizon that does not have LTE, the store may tell you that you need to go to VZW to get a sim card however the phone does come with a sim card for LTE already (or at least mine did). You can also do the full activation of your phone online without going in or even calling VZW.

    I got mine from Verizon for $99 because of a $100 upgrade credit and cancelled the account that I bought it with immediately after I received the phone. I will be charged $350 early termination but that cost comes out to $450. I have since activated it on another line.

    Why not try buying from a Best Buy or something then eating the early cancellation fee like I did, you will need to find a cheaper location than Verizon because I don't know how many people get the $99 savings from their upgrade.

    I also did it to save the unlimited plan.

    Costco or Wirefly

    $129+tax plus $350 early term = about $485

    Cheapest? Ebay...otherwise from any retail it's going to be what it is unless you use some sort of cash back rebate with credit cards etc..
