    I'll be going to the closest MS Store today to preorder. Is it sad that I'm as excited not to have to deal with VZ sales reps as I am for the actual phone? :P

    Can we do the $100 trade in offer online or does that need to be in the store? And is that $100 trade in only for new lines? I haven't found much info online for that promotion. I need to dig around and see what I have that still works.

    Edit: Looks like you can do it online and it only requires purchasing and activating a new 4G phone. Cell Phone Discounts - Cell Phone Deals | Verizon Wireless
    This requires trading in your current smartphone, which if you can't sell on ebay for at least $135 ($100 + free activation usually costing $35) is pretty good. But I can still sell my 928 on eBay for about $190 so I'll be skipping out on this, UNLESS I can trade in my inactive Galaxy Nexus which is my backup unit. I'll have to ask about this.

    VZW sucks but 20% cashback is awesome if i pay with ISIS. as much as the reps suck getting $120 or so back is a fair tradeoff.

    I'm assuming this is for off-contract purchases? Is there any deal for buying on contact?

    well its thier standar deal going until the 28th of teh month and VZW store are of course ISIS equipped. I've gotten back money every time i pay with my phone. https://www.paywithisis.com/offers/serve.html

    not trying to advertise for the crappy wallet service but in this case it makes sense for me to use it.

    I understand. You know at the Microsoft Store they're giving a free wireless charger when you purchase the Icon through March 16

    Is this something posted in-store? Cause I haven't seen any mention of this. I may go there instead if true.

    Actually, I called my local MS store and the gentleman I spoke with said the wireless charger deal is for preorders (which ends today). I'm not sure if its different from store to store, but I'm not going to take any chances and head to an MS store after I get off work.

    I just got off the phone with my local Microsoft store. They said that just because you pre-ordered does not qualify one for a free charger, yet after your purchase you will receive a free charger as a pre-order gift. :)

    Thats awesome as well. I welcome any and all deals to be had. In my case it makes more sense to get it from VZW but for others there are definitely other incentives to choose otherwise. I'm also a student and am eligible for the 10% Microsoft discount as well.

    Agree. Microsoft has a better insurance on phones too, and if you ever have issues with your phone, they have more knowledge on how to fix it than Verizon reps

    For those of you who have pre-ordered from Microsoft Store, are you arriving first thing tomorrow morning? I'm concerned that I'll get there first thing in the morning and they won't have it yet. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks.

    Called local VW store, they said they have limited quantities. Confirmed both white and black. I asked if they could put one on hold for me. He said truthfully you are the only one who has called in for this phone all week...I don't think you will have a problem.

    Anybody else getting a similar response?

    I looked at an older model nokia that was matte black and matte white. I liked the black one better.

    Don't. Samesung, now rudderless due to all the lawsuits against them have nothing to copy, and will just keep shoving in more and more gimmicky technology into their shiny turds they like to call phones. Keep an eye on Sony, maybe we'll get that WP8 they promised.
