Madden 2012 on Android is FREE this Weekend from Verizon

Madden 2012 on Android will normally run you about $7.50, but from October 1-3 (this weekend), Verizon customers can download it for free by simply calling **MADDEN (**623336).  It may not help the fact that 1,200 of us got whacked from the Droid Life Eliminator in weeks 1-3 of this NFL season, but it at least gives us another way to enjoy some football for free.  That’s right, there are only 396 people out of 1,500 that still have a chance to win after just 3 weeks.  Fun times.

Cheers Scott, John and Jubby!

    i been trying to get this since last night i still cant it keeps saying my phone not supported for some  reason someone please help me out

    Stupid thing forces you to download it through vcast. If you don’t have vcast you’re supposed to go to a store to get it installed. Wtf.. I’m not going to go to a store to get more bloatware installed on my phone just to play a game.

    It says the bionic isnt supported

      i got the same reply for my Thunderbolt….

        Plus we have to subscribe to vcast

  • Miguel Montano Mm

    Okay, so what am I doing wrong. I tried calling **madden yet I get a message saying that my call can not go through. Any suggestions?

  • Ffy

    I have a Droid Charge, which IS listed as supported…but I don’t have the V Cast App Store, so no go.  Nor can I get it.  This is re-friggin’-diculous.

  • Kenohki88

    Bionic of mine couldn’t down load it…says something about v cast its not free if I have to sign up for stupid v cast

  • http://twitter.com/onelegchair Adam Neighbors

    Stupid fake. You have to have a Vcast subscription.

  • Joejoe1100

    Read the bottom of the webpage that the text message directs you to. It lists the supported phones. The Bionic is not on the supported list. I cannot understand why Verizon would disclude their flagship phone.

  • Telephoneteck

    Verizon is only giving it to people with a vcast subscription :, (
    Damn you big red!

  • http://www.facebook.com/DCasper Dustin Casper

    I just tried it and it says that my phone is not supported…its 12:40am right now, tha’ts bullsh*t.

  • Eric815

    Wtf! Bionic is not supported either!!
    This is a sham.

  • Anonymous

    Only avail on a few devices. No go on Bionic.

  • dr154

    I just tried to get it and it said my device not supported. Droid X2 :((

    • Mack

      Unfortunately, it looks like our phones still need to be on 2.2 for this to work. At the bottom it lists te Droid X2 but not on gingerbread. 

  • Stew560

    So I update my Thunderbolt to GB and this is the thanks I get?

  • Bigmatai

    I just tried calling. I got through, but no text message with a link as stated in the message.

  • Jim Goun

    both my Droid 3 & X2 are “not supported”… WTF Verizon….

    • A B

      Not working on my Bionic or my Droid 3, can anybody provide a workaround? Epic fail for this not working on Verizon’s premier phones…

      • Anonymous

        it doesnt work on my Thunderbolt, or on My wifes Incredible. Seems it doesnt work on any phone that would be required to run it……. Verizon sucks like that. Its probable some iCrap phone thing….

  • Stuian1

    Unfortunately my Droid Bionic does not seem to be a supported phone. Humm.

  • MJZ

    No luck on my Bionic. 
    Needs to be downloaded through the VZW App Store (VCast Apps). 

  • http://profiles.google.com/chasehammer Chase Johnson

    i called, it said i was too early its only the 1st through the 3rd. sent me a text anyways saying to go this website to download. i clicked the link and it said i wasnt on a Android VCast phone. lol im on a verizon droid 2… weird, maybe it will work tomorrow.

    • Hayden Hawk

      I did the same thing and it said my phone wasn’t supported.  Hopefully that will change tomorrow.

      Nope, took the Steelers…

  • Slzmn1

    How do we get this on a Xoom….no place to dial? Once we have it on our phone (D3) will we be able to use the Web Android Market to install it to our other devices (Xoom)?

    • http://profiles.google.com/chasehammer Chase Johnson

      no, it probably wont work. it will probably be coded like the Madden 11 apk was, it connects to verizon and sees if you paid for it before it actives. I paid for Madden 11 on my droid 2, tried to mode apk and folder to my droid x and it wouldnt work. Probably same with this one.

    I suspect that with the imminent release of the iPhone5, we can expect to see more freebies and incentives to stay with Android. That’s all good by me!

    • J0n Galt

      YOU ARE WRONG!  ANDROID IS ALREADY FAR SUPERIOR!  THERE IS NO NEED FOR GOODIES.  THESE INCENTIVES ONLY EXIST OUT OF BENEVOLENCE!

  • HTCNut

    @Eklinger79 I tried the website, not working sadly.

  • HTCNut

    They made it for Oct. 1st because that’s when NFL Mobile video will not be free anymore, therefore you need a VCAST subscription to get video and if i’m reading comments correctly, this game as well. Unreal.

    • Chefmg

      yep just saw that myself reason I rooted was to get rid of vcast not to download it again no nfl game for me

  • Eklinger79

    If you don’t have Vcast just go to apktop.com, search for the game, download its apk and install.  Bam! free Madden 2012.

    • HTCNut

      @Eklinger79 I tried the website, not working sadly. 

      • Eklinger79

        Are you retarded? Of course it works, type http://www.apktop.com into your browser, when there search for any app you like.  On the apps description page just scroll down and underneath the bar code is a link to download the apk.  Then on your phone navigate to where the file was downloaded to and install.  Piece of cake!

        • Blood

          The first sentence in your response was funny. You talk like a kid.

          WHO BROUGHT THE COOL KID

        • Jayrod718

          I get a license error when installing the apk from that website, would be awesome if it worked….

  • http://twitter.com/reggie1225 Reginald Jefferson

    Yep, I think I’m gonna get this

  • O C

    Can’t wait

  • Anonymous

    Does anyone know if this requires using the VCast app store or will this be a standalone APK (thus, not upgradable in anyway)?

    I’m hoping it is for the normal Android Market but I’m kind of doubting it.

  • Unity

    Do we have to call this number? Or text madden? When I call it, I get a your call can not be completed. Help I have an og droid.

    • Unity

      Nm, I’m so stupid october 1-3. Guess I got a little too excited.

  • Sean Futach

    Got a “Sorry. Your phone is not supported” on my D3. All because no V-Cast, there are like 4 V-cast branded apps on this phone, oh well.

  • http://twitter.com/King_George17 George Gennaoui

    This is only if you have V-Cast.

    Is this linked anywhere? I’m not on an unlimited texting plan and I’m wondering if this is one of those “FREE!!!* game!” deals where there’s “*user agrees to receive 500 text messages per month with no ability to ever stop” clauses ;).  Just wondering if there’s more to it.

    i’m beginning to like this verizon and nfl partnership more and more

  • Anonymous

    Well…  If you have an HTC Incredible, you can forget this freebie if you upgraded to GB. I no longer have access to the Verizon app’s in the market…  It was replaced with Sprint for some reason…

    how do i get this on my 3g xoom? is it going to be like need for speed were it is avaible for like 3 months and is now no longer supported by my carrier which is vz. i like having apps installed but then they want you to update but you cant because vz throws up the yellow flag and doesnt support it.

  • BilleyMaes

    Hmm to me, If the tittle doesn’t state vigor, prime or droid HD it isn’t worth reading..

      I love me some big ole tittles.

      Oh, you meant title.

    It says I don’t have V-Cast…

    They are more than likely screening people to see whom is rooted. Doing this may very well void your warranty. I would love to see the terms and conditions of this free game.

      LOL… If so I just got whacked… :)

       I seriously doubt that.

        Why?

        • Whatever

          Because he’s not a conspiracy theorist.

  • MJZ

    Hopefully they whitelist the Bionic before the end of the weekend.. but it’s unlikely :(

    I just can’t picture a console game being ported to a touch platform and still being fun.  I mean most PC to console ports suck, the controls must be….difficult.

  • http://twitter.com/cincij Josh McKinney

    Wouldn’t allow me to get it on my rooted Thunderbolt running CM7.

    I wonder if I can get it on my Verizon Xoom

    • John

      go to the market for madden 2012, see if it’s compatible

      • Anonymous

        Last time I checked it was not supported. I’ll assume that never changed.

  • John
