DROID RAZR On Sale at Amazon Tomorrow for $111?

With Verizon making customers wait until 11:11AM tomorrow (11/11) to buy the DROID RAZR, Amazon has reportedly stepped up to offer a pretty sweet deal that also relates to the significance of the date. According to Gizmodo, the latest DROID family member can be had for just $111.11 on contract for 1 day only. Nothing on the site shows the phone or this discount just yet, but we’ll do our best to take their word for it. I’d recommend that you cruise over to Amazon’s wireless site at the link below in the morning, just in case.

Update:  It is available for $111.11. New customers only.

Cheers Tarun, KLY, Cam and Jeff!

    Limit of three phones.  I ported from AT&T to a family plan and got 3x Razrs for $111.11 and 2x Bionics at $119.

    I also clicked keep my unlimited for $30 hoping that some programming error will let the computer system assign that plan to me without any human interaction.  Worst case, they kick it out and assign me a different plan.

    I really wished the RAZR was global ready. I travel for work and need a phone that I can use abroad (I purchase a local SIM card for my current droid..)

    And… only new customers. Bastards.

    My brother has been out of contract for a couple years now.  He’s currently on a plan with my mom.  Does anyone know if he starts a new plan on his own whether he would be able to take advantage of this or not?

  • I’m not sure what the rest of you are seeing at Amazon, but the price I see for new customers in 119.99 and as an existing customer I get 189.99 which is still a hell of a lot better than the 249.99 VZW is charging.

    • Not to mention that there is not taxes unless you live in Washington state.

    WTF!!!!!!!!!! It’s only for new customers! 

  • Ravnos CC

    As a “loyal” customer w/unlimited GBs, you are worth less than a new customer to VZ on tiered data…. SORRY FOLKS, CORPORATE AMERICA DOESN’T LOVE YOU!  (how is that still news to some people….)

    So what’s the disadvantage of the new customer part of it? I’m currently out of contract on my current 2 lines and want to get new numbers anyway. Not currently on a data plan. So I’m thinking of just opening a new account via Amazon and closing the old one. Anyone see a downside?

      Only real downside is the loss of number if you have people trying to reach you.

        My thoughts exactly. My first cell phone ever was an old Qualcomm phone on Verizon. It may have been Bell Atlantic at the time. Over 12 years with this company and I can’t catch a break.

    $111 is only for new contracts. Upgrade on my family plan is $249.99.

    • Which is still what $50 cheaper than VZW is going to let me get an upgrade for.  I am going to Corporate store on Sunday going to let my wife and sister play with these to see if they want them then walk my happy ass over to best buy and get them cheaper with no mail in rebate.

    Hey, I was wondering if Verizon still charges that $35 activation fee. Couldn’t I just opt to do it myself at home? Anyone get a phone from there recently? Thinking about picking this up in the store for my wife but activation is such a rip when we can just do it ourselves. Thanks.

    • Anonymous

      The “activation fee” is whether you do the activation yourself or in store.  It is just a “tax” that they charge, and has no bearing on any “work” actually done.

    I’d like to note something that isn’t in the article.  It appears that the 111.11 deal is only for new contracts.  I go to upgrade my phone on AW and it gives me a 249.99 price.  I may actually get a better deal if I walk into the store.

    Just FYI for everyone.  In a way, its a classic “bait and switch” marketing strategy.

      Just asking, How might you get a better in store deal?

    That Gizmodo article says nothing about on contract price. Don’t know where Kellex got that from. Right now you can get it for $111.11 if your a new customer and $299 if your an existing customer. Doubt that will change.

    forget the razr, im tempted by the rezound, that will run ics not like the razr…but yes it is quite tempting, although the $111 from amazon is only for new customers otherwise its 199 for upgrade……screw it ive had my thunderbolt long enough galaxy nexus atleast i will have you in my dreams tonight

    Wow, it is legit and now live – Droid RAZR for $111.11.  But it shows as backordered?

  • Typo

    It’s definitely for new customers. $250 for existing customers…

  • So I’m planning on porting my current VZ number into Google Voice at some point, but my contract doesn’t end until February. If I port it up now and get a new line, I could get the $111 deal and pay the $120~130 cancellation fee, totaling me $240. The other option is I wait until my contract completley ends, and pay $300 for a Galaxy Nexus. Think the difference of $40 is worth it?

    • I’d wait and pay the extra $60 for the Nexus.

  • Msdynamite

    I’m not buying the GNex or the Razr until the Razr gets ICS,  and I can hold both floor models in my hand at the Verizon store, and the GNex has been scratch tested and the Razr has been rooted.   THEN I’ll decide.   Patience will be rewarded.

      Then you Sir are an idiot.  Though I prefer the Nexus to the Razr, if it were really $ 1.11 I’d buy the phone, play wi/ it for a bit, and then maybe sell it for the Nexus.
      The Razr is still a great phone which in many ways is better than the Nexus, however I couldn’t consider buying any phone that doesn’t have hardware acceleration, so it was either Nexus or GSII for me.

    The funniest part about this is that I said a few weeks ago when the 11/11/11 Razr sale was first mentioned that they should sell it for $111.11 on contract on 11/11/11 and a few idiots actually argued with me that the price wouldnt be “logical”. lol. I wonder if they even remember. Looks like my comment made more sense then they thought. Even though the sale is from Amazon

      good call. unfortunately, the price is only good for new customers.

  • Arthur2142

    Amazon usually only offers their best price to new customers. New customers can get the Bionic right now for $119, but existing customers have to pay $189. I’m wondering if this $111 offer is the same deal. Even so, if they have it for under $200 for existing customers, I might jump on that tomorrow.

    • Anonymous

      $111 for new customers only, existing customers (even if adding a line), the price goes to $249

  • For those getting the GN… What kind of job do you have that you are ok with paying $200 more for a superphone?

    The Droid dev community is amazing and there has no been a Droid yet that hasn’t gotten a ROM with the latest Android. 

    • Anonymous

      I’ll be selling my rooted DroidX and accesories for at least $150, so that makes the upgrade to the G-nex a lot easier to take.  Even with the $189 discount for the Razr, I still won’t buy another locked down from Motorola.  What a pain getting upgrades while staying rooted!  I’m getting too old for that shit.

    • UMMMMM please link the latest ROM for the X2 since the dev community behind that phone sucks right now.  And its all Motorola’s fault.  The X2 could have been a power house if Moto would unlock the bootloader. Plus this is for new customers if you haven’t noticed most of us here have VZW so we are not paying $200 more for the GNex since it will more than likely be the exact same price as the RAZR.

      Yep, I feel the same way. You’d have to be an unusual specimen to not choose the nexus. The razr has got to be one of the ugliest phones around, it looks absolutely hideous in my opinion. The nexus topples it in every way shape and form.

  • Cam

    Just keep in mind that, when you order from Amazon, you get two contracts; one from VZW, the other from Amazon with an additional ETF attached. The one from Amazon is only 181 days, but something to keep in mind.
    On the other hand, Amazon has a 30-day return period, so it may be worth a shot.

      According to Souldrum above:

    Went to Costco today and the guy told me that they have them in stock but not allowed to sell them until tomorrow. He told me they are doing the same type of bundle that they did with the Bionic. I was going to go that route but if Amazon has it for 111 then hot damn, I am there.

          The bundle I am talking about is the HDMI dock, the car dock, car charger, and I think a case for the phone. That was the bundle for the BIONIC. The Costco guy eluded to the same bundle or similar bundle being offered with the RAZR. Now, whether or not to trust a Costco Wireless emp, that’s a different question. Just passing on what I heard.

      Help me understand how you have come to this assumption. Lets see… Amazon MAY offer a one day only promotional price for a new phone and you leap to the conclusion that Verizon expects to much inventory and not enough buyers? If I read it backwards and it was true it would make more sense. Try it.. not enough buyers, to much inventory, Verizon expects pretty disturbing news for the Razr. But that would even be an assumption considering they don’t have any retail store sales yet.

      This is patently ridiculous.  Was at&t and Amazon worried about too much inventory and not enough buyers for the Galaxy SII at launch?  No, it is just about grabbing buyers while the phone has initial interest.

        Yup, we have our priorities straight…why else do you think we drop $300 on phones and car sales have increased in 2011?  *sarcasm*

      Because deals like this are for “new line” subscribers.  Hence you don’t get the deep discount anyway…even for a renewal (most of the time). 

      Yes, this is the tax of the “early adopter” to have bragging rights, and that is what most people are interested in when they buy a phone quickly… or stand online for hours (or days) in order to get a phone you could easily have shipped overnight to your home.

    Wonder if that discount will cross over off contract, Maybe, $180 off the unsubsidized price.

      If they did that I would buy. I wish they would do an off contract deal sometime also. Yeah I know they want people on contracts but they are still making $$ off of off contract prices. They would have to take alot off though since they charge like 100+ full retail over what verizon charges.

        They get paid by VZW for the contract.  That is why they sell low.  Hence, no chance of a “off contract” deal.

      A great phone off-contract for sub $200. Yeah, I’d bite.

  • Why does the second place phone get to be released first and have the best offers.
