    Ordered, for the low, low price of $79.99. With that, I too splurged for the $12.99 overnight shipping.

    It didn't get free overnight shipping either. No biggie, as the whole thing, including overnight shipping and tax, came out to $133.98!

    Okay, I've been told why we're not getting free overnight. Apparently it only works for orders done BEFORE 4:30pm. So if this would've leaked early, like before 4:30 we wouldve gotten the free overnight. Now we have to wait until 6 or 7am for the offer to reset.

    ....or you can call Telesales before they close and sweet-talk them into giving you the free overnight.

    Hmm I ordered just now and got free overnight. /shrug

    Just checked to make sure I got overnight, and my order status shows as order shipped already.

    Yeah, the logical part of me said, "I should have waited a bit for free overnight", but the gadget ***** in me, said "Screw that"!

    I just got off the phone with a VZW rep who was incredibly helpful, seeing as I'm not the main # on the account. He got me all set up and my order for the Trophy is in!!! I didn't spring for the overnight shipping, hoping I can arrange an in-store pick up with FedEx once I have the tracking number. This is my first smartphone and I'm STOKED!

    Before I orderd, my account stated that if I was eligible for a upgrade discount, but if I wait on or after 8/21/11 (when my contract actually ends), I will get a loyalty discount. Doesn't it make more sense to get a bigger discount before your contract ends?

    Where did you stand with your account?

    man this is weird stuff. the big ad page (/htc/trophy) shows $149. if i log out of my account & browse the phones, find the trophy, and view its price, it says it's $199 w/ a $50 online discount. IIRC, there was a $50 MIR as well...

    my contract was up back in November. i'm not going to buy right now. there's too much confusion here and i'm not about to pay money if others are getting it for free! :) i'll call 'em tomorrow & see what's up.

    Yes, that doesn't make any sense. It seems it randomly chooses people. Now I'm wondering if I should have waited.... nah!

    Good luck when you call, BC!

    Just a lurker here. Wanted to add that I picked up one of these phones too (Yay). Wasn't getting the crazy discounts some of you are getting though. My offer price was $199.99 with contract and a $50 online discount, so I got it for $149.99. But I was offered free overnight shipping. Also, shame no SLCD screen. But hey, I can't complain. It's still a nice phone and worth the price.

    Ugh, just got a complication. I am trying to use a family member's NE2 discount, so I am ordering through their account and then just activating the phone on my number. We are on different accounts. I've just been informed by customer service, however, that if I do that, it will void the warranty on the phone. O_O !!!! Seriously, Verizon?

    So looks like I'll probably wait to order it tomorrow so I can link both our accounts, and just go the alternate upgrade route. If you do alternate upgrade, than it won't void the warranty.
