DROID 2 Only a Penny, DROID X only $99 through Amazon

To anyone who purchased a Droid 2 or Droid X over the last few weeks, please stop reading now or prepare to be slightly insulted.  Amazon is now selling the DX for $99, but even more shocking is the price of the D2 which drops in at $.01.  Yes, a single penny.  Our sources have mentioned more than once that the Droid 2 Global will eventually replace the original and with this insulting price, you have to start wondering if it’ll happen any day now.

Thoughts D2 owners?

And to those looking to snag one of these phones, head over to Amazon now to purchase them!

Cheers Luda  and Ryan!

    A penny for your thoughts, but not for us to upgrade, oh well, any thoughts for a penny:)

    The D1 is a pretty good exception and still has a loyal fan base but I would assume not for much longer.

    Those prices are only for new subscribers or only if your current contract is within 2 months of expiring. You should see the correct pricing after you enter plan information and they can confirm your contract dates.

    I was wondering how secure amazon is and if there will be any issues with verizon.

  • http://appraisernow.com/CA/San-Diego Appraiser

    Definitely you have a confusion or misunderstanding it is not possible to sell DX at .01 or a single penny..

    Since you renew your contract you are basically a new customer. you are not locked down and could go somewhere else so it is exactly the same as someone who has never had verizon before wanting one.

    I got my x the day it came out and paid out my ass lol..my chick wants to replace her dinc with an x..i was wondering how secure amazon is and if there will be any issues with verizon?

  • Joanna Jadore

    I'm not surprised at all! I bought my D1 earlier this year around March for $20 from Amazon while my coworker who bought hers a week earlier from a Verizon retailer paid about 400$. SCORE!

  • thelolotov

    YOU BASTARDS.

  • Jowabe

    I just called and spoke with Amazon Wireless. Those prices are only for new subscribers or only if your current contract is within 2 months of expiring. You should see the correct pricing after you enter plan information and they can confirm your contract dates.

    • Guest

      Amazon Wireless? Who are they?

  • pcguru30

    thats gotta be a promotion for new subscribers.. I cant see one year or 2 year renewals getting the phone THAT cheap

    • andrew401

      that makes no sense. since you renew your contract you are basically a new customer. you are not locked down and could go somewhere else so it is exactly the same as someone who has never had verizon before wanting one.

  • Marzav77

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the rumor about the 4G and Droid X?

  • MMM333

    My dx got so pissed off at this that he turned himself off and then refused to work correctly until I finally convinced him that it wasn't true.

  • http://YourWebsite Ayk

    So i have to pay 500 bucks if i want to replace my original droid? i got more than a year left for the upgrade and my droid got some small problems

  • rgrdoc

    Come on Droid 2 Global!!! My NE2 is up tomorrow!

  • Dellbx

    Droid X for $99 dollars is $99 dollars too expensive considering the headaches Motorola's botched Froyo implementation brings

  • PositiveNegative

    It's $0.01 for new users, and WAS $39.99 the first time I tried this out. However, I just removed the item from my shopping card and when I added the DROID 2 again it jumped to $79.99. Am I crazy, or did this happen to anybody else.

    • Mth2134

      Existing upgrade-79.99
      New contract-.01

      • PositiveNegative

        Okay, yeah. It was listing as $39.99 for an existing upgrade the first go around. Not such an enticing deal anymore.

  • Lynahred

    No good for me without adding another data line to our family plan.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

    lol i got a d2 for even less. FREE! so i dont care.

  • El El Kool J

    Thats good price.. sux for us Verizon Premium Retailers though.. I could never match those prices.. :( Well they have to get a NEW 2 yr activation though. Plus you lose your manufacturer warranty coverage thru VZ have to go straight to the OEM. Also have to get a 3rd party insurance coverage to protect you phone.

  • Bmtbandit

    Its only $.01 if you are a new account. If you are on a family plan it is still $99. Not really a big deal.

  • random

    those prices are only for NEW customers, if you want to just upgrade your phone, the prices change….bamas…smh

  • 1bad69z28

    I think we should all see the trend going on here from the past year with all of the Android phoes coming out. Even though next year we should see a slow down in the number of phones coming out just beaware that as soon as you get that hot Droid, the next one that is better is already hitting the market.

    Add on the other phones from defferent carriers, these phones are high turnover. The D1 is a pretty good exception and still has a loyal fan base but I would assume not for much longer. Bigger screens, better OS,and faster processors. The demand is high and we love it lol. So don't be suprised if your phone that you spent 149.99 is now on sell at Amazon for 40 bucks 4 to 5 months later.

    Technology you Gotta Love It :)

  • KleenDroid

    I got mine for less than that! :)

  • Miguelm360

    Can anyone buy these and get them activated with Verizon with no problem?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RKR5EVIUDY373XLMI5NRATGLOM MarlonH

      I bought my original droid via amazon and had no problems activating my phone. Even had them port my old number with no issues.

      • Miguelm360

        Thanks for the reply, but is there a catch to these prices??

        I'm not due for an upgrade and have had the Droid Incredible since it came out. So for me, what would be the proper scenerio for me then? I'm on an unlimited Data plan btw

        • Romma1

          Your Dinc blows away either of these phones IMO. Think twice. There is no way I would buy that behemoth of a phone, or the slide out. Locked bootloaders and all.

          • Anonymous

            depends what you want in a phone. i want a 4.3 with a keyboard

            a man can dream…

          • srini

            what locked bootloaders? did you just pick it up from old news from the time when the phones released?

          • Anonymous

            it’s true the Dinc does blow away both phones. i have all 3 and the Incredible is far superior to the others. i guess it’s all opinion tho but performance does not lie

          • Derp the Don

            To each his own, I guess. I hate the ‘plasticy’ cheap feel of the Dinc and love the screen capabilities of the X.

  • Mike

    so i have to be eligible for an upgrade to but a D2 for one cent?

    • Mike

      to buy*

      • Bmtbandit

        No open a new account.

    • El El Kool J

      it for new customer only price not upgrades

      • JagoX

        Its $40 for upgrades…hardly something to scoff at.

  • 1bad69z28

    Man all the drama going on here about these prices falling, I am glad I stilll have my trusty Ol' D1 Rooted lol

    • The350zWolf

      Long live the King, the OG Droid!

    guys i need help im a noob lol, i got my droid( 12 bucks on amazon wireless) on may 7th of this year and i would like to know if i can get the droid 2 or the droid x with the cheap prices from there? sorry if my english is bad. i payed all of my bills on time but i have not had it for 181 days that i think is required if you buy from amazon wireless, i dont want to add a line, just transfer my phone number to the d2 or dx. id like to get the d2 for 39.99 because my headphone slot got screwed when i droped it and hinge is a little loose, plus the keyboard in the d2 is better. thank you

    • Ayk

      anyone?

      • Ayk

        never mind, they told me i had to buy the phone at full price even though on the site when u click on existing costumer it shows the a price or 39.99

      Why not just talk to Amazon Customer Service instead? They would know their policies better then the rest of us.

      • Ayk

        trying they are not picking up, usualy they are fast. now cant decide if d2 or incredible, i never use the keyboard on my original droid, trying to see speed difference between the d2 and incredible

        • JagoX

          That’s doubtful. Just go to a Verizon store and play with both phones and see which on you like better…but just be mindful that people (including reps) install all kinds of crap on the Android phones there to “test them out” so you might need to clean them up a bit.

  • BigFonz

    Damnnnnnnnm. I wish my contract was up. I would get the D2 in a heartbeat. I'm really waiting for the HTC Merge though I think that will be my next phone. We'll see though.

  • http://www.facebook.com/justin.munroe1 Justin Munroe

    WTF!!!!

  • GUMA822

    I SPENT $200 ON MINE BACK IN AUGUST! JUST OVER 2 MONTHS AGO! THIS IS CRAP

    • El El Kool J

      You also probably did an upgrade to huh? well this is for new customers “only”

  • MattInPDX

    The D2 says it's $39.99 and the DX says it's $99.99. I've been eligible for an upgrade for 3 months now, just waiting for the dual core to come out…besides, my I <3 my trusty D1.

  • bravoleader2

    I'd be mad if I paid for it. Maybe the hardware in the D2 isn't so great? Why would they have 2 versions out already with another looming?

    • Ayk

      the new one is a world phone

  • Brandon L Buchanan

    Man I'm so glad I got my D2 for free
