Motorola DROID RAZR is Indeed $111.11 at Amazon Wireless, For New Customers Only

Late last night, news broke across the deal-o-sphere suggesting that Amazon Wireless would be selling the DROID RAZR for just $111.11 today only. And guess what? That’s exactly what happened. If you are thinking about joining the Big Red army and want this phone, you can sign up for service through Amazon and grab this brand new phone for about $188 under what everyone else will be paying. Notice I said “thinking about joining” because this deal is for new customers only. If you are looking to upgrade, you will still get a deal, but at $249 instead of the $111.

Buy.

Cheers to everyone who sent this in last night!

    This phone is awesome. I was upgraded to this phone. I added a new line cost me 300 at verizon store. Im not eligible for upgrade for another 7 months. They even cancelled my droid x line free of charge and gave me the ghost phone. Sweet little drug deal. Im still eligible for upgrade in June.

    $229 now on Amazon (as of 3:15 p.m. PT) for upgrade.

    LOL, well they can’t worry about losing to much money now can they.  They know all of us existing suckers are not going to switch carriers just because of a cheap phone.  That is because Big Red has the service access everywhere.

    Now they might be able to tempt an existing AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint customer to a better network, a better phone, and a great double data deal with this!   That way they will make more money in the long run, not as much as from us Big Red Loyalists though.

    you can get the phone for $149.99 for existing customers upgrading at wirefly.com

      Lies! I am seeing $249.99. Already checked this morning when it was first posted, and checked again just now.

    Limit three phones.  I had to add two Bionics for my fourth and fifth on the family plan I just ported over from AT&T.

    $50.00 off for upgrades using Amazon too. $249 as opposed to $299

    • Billyrouth2000

      Yea but on amazon you have to pay the 34$ fee and on vzw website u dont so not really much of a difference

    They are making things tough. I’m waiting to see the Raz/Gnex side by side and to get some time to play with the UI, look at the screen, hold the phone, etc. I’m leaning towards the Gnex but $111.11 (I would be a new customer x 2 me/wife) is an Awesome deal. It would save me nearly $400 on two phones. Will Amazon offer a similar deal on the Gnex? Will Costco/Bestbuy throw a holiday deal on the Gnex? Unknown!!! Damn it!!

      Amazon will certainly have a similar deal on the GNEX, maybe $150 instead of $111.  Assuming they carry it they’ll have a great price for new customers, they have with every other phone.

      Most likely not unless you wait a few weeks. The only reason they are doing this is because of 11/11/11

    *slap in the face*

  • Bdrsvt

    It’s all about quanity for Verizon these days it seems.

  • GNex

    Get the Razr next week, play with it for 10-14 days, return it on day of Gnex release. Ftw

      But you’ll get hit with the restocking fee that is apparently standard now.

      • GNex

        Forgot about that. I think its like 35 bucks.

    • Anonymous

      Until verizon pushes the gnex back a few more days and you can’t do that.

      • GNex

        Haha probably true!

    …and yet I’m still going to wait for the Galaxy Nexus!!

    Also……Happy 11/11/11, everyone!!

    • GNex

      Yeah, why don’t you start digging up some content FV

  • hatethanet

    Hmmm…would it be worth it to get a friend to buy it as a new customer, then cancel? You’d have a RAZR with no contract for less than $500 if you paid for the phone and your buddy’s cancellation fee.

      There’s like an extra ‘Amazon ETF’ for the first 6 or 12 months.

  • razrftw

    Why can’t people who upgrade get deals like this?

    • FortitudineVincimus

      cause they already have you locked in

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

        If you have an upgrade available, aren’t you running on a month to month deal until you renew?

        • Anonymous

          not necessarily but you are close to being month to month so they should want to lock you back in.

     Why do people have such a hard time understanding what the review section is for. It seems like half the people who write amazon reviews have their head completely up their a**es.

  • KeithG

    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?

    • http://twitter.com/nscelica Nicholas Sparks

      Without being tied in with unlimited or a contact, this would be your best option, IMO. Not sure if there are fees for opening an account though.

      • KeithG

        There were activation fees listed as $35 for first line and $25 for additional lines, but since I saved $188 + on each phone, I’m not going to complain.

    • Edwin M

      Thats cool. You also get 4gb data plan for the price of a 2gb so if you are a new customer then it’s a fantastic deal. For us long time VZW customers, not so good.

    • shdowman

      You can’t. They dont treat you as a new customer until you have not had service with VZW for 30 after you cancel.

      • KeithG

        Just pulled the trigger. Two phones for a total of $222.22. No problem with the checkout procedure using same name, address, and social as my current account. My wife suggested that it may be because our old account is still active. We’ll cancel it when the new phones arrive.

  • Anonymous

    Getting a 4g phone with a a tiered data plan is like having a Corvette with a quarter tank of gas: You can go somewhere really fast but after that you’re screwed. If I wasn’t grandfathered in to unlimited data, I’d be looking to switch to Sprint.

  • Lumpysherman

    New customers only huh, just another reason to wait for the nexus. I did stop at my local VZW store last night to check this device out. It is very nice, speedy, fits nicely in the hand, and the display was very good. Too bad it comes with GB and no NFC.

  • Anonymous

    blah blah blah… so any1 think costco will offer a bundle kit with the g nex, like they did with the bionic and razr??

    • Edwin M

      I hope so.

    • Edwin M

      Spoke with Costco wireless guy over the phone, he told me that they are offering the phone with HDMI Cable, desktop dock, portable charger, carrying case, car charger, and screen protector all for $289.

        for cereal?  ok, now call him back and ask if you can buy a phone there if you are a member’s guest, or if you happen to look like a member, but have a different name…  Hurry, I’m going to go pour a magic hat and expect your response upon my return.

    If this had been the price for upgrade customers I totally would have ditched my Nexus plans and gone RAZR.  Hit my local VZW store yesterday and checked out the phone and it’s thinness.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6LY5JVZCJUXXU5LWZUG2GSE2OI Joshua C

      I even called and told them they would have a sale if for that price. They said no and I said I will wait for Nexus or better pricing. My contract ended in July and I have been holding out this long, I can wait longer.

      • Anonymous

        I’m in the same boat.  As an Incredible 1 and 2 owner, I was originally holding out for what we now call the Rezound, but once the Nexus was rumored to be on Verizon I made that my hold out phone of choice.  The guys at my local Best Buy Mobile are getting sick of me constantly asking if they got any info.  I’m hoping that Verizon releases some info on it soon.

      You get to upgrade once a year! Oh, crap, nevermind.

      After two years you get credit for a new phone!          Damnit, wrong again….

      Unlimited data! (check back in 6 months)

            Straight up, Verizon is becoming the Apple of the wireless ind. with their pricing.

            Who’s saying they haven’t already? Apple is probably moments away for filing a patent on the color white and the letter i
