[Deal] Galaxy Nexus Available from LetsTalk for as Low as $155 for New Customers, $175 for Upgrades

Tonight at midnight, LetsTalk.com is opening up their store to future Galaxy Nexus deals with quite the deal. Using their $75 off VZW coupon, you can score one as a new customer for $154.99 and $174.99 through an upgrade. That’s essentially half of what Verizon stores will charge you.

Head to this link at 12:01 PST and plug in the code $75VZN.

Update:  Some of you noticed that their system appears to try to switch you over to a tiered data plan. I have reached out to LetsTalk to get some clarification on this. Hoping to hear back shortly.

Update 2: LetsTalk has confirmed that they have a ‘keep unlimited’ option when you add the Galaxy Nexus to your cart. That should take care of any worries out there for unlimited data Verizon customers.

The coupon code comes from their Facebook page.

    I was back ordered til the 12th, checked today and my phone is suppose to ship today and arrive monday.

  • I GOT BACK ORDERED AGAIN!!!! NEW TIME 1/12/2012!!! WTF!?

  • K2extrem5

    Oh yeah. And I ordered at 10am EST on launch day.

    • mine is shipped, i ordered it at about 930 am launch day.  sounds like you just missed the cut

  • K2extrem5

    My estimated availability date was just pushed out to 01/12/2012 after it said 12/30/2011. I called and she said they received phones in today. The way she explained it if they have 2,000 phones back ordered and they have 1,000 coming in on the 12th everybody sees the 01/12/2012 date regardless. So I might be waiting til the 12th then get a new date of the 26th. I might be waiting months at this rate. I’d imagine LetsTalk doesn’t get much priority compared to other stores selling them for $299.

    • yeahyeahyeah

      I ordered about 8:30am on launch day and my status was just changed to ‘Ready to Ship’ with an estimated delivery date of Monday.  Maybe you just missed the cut?

    • Evan

      yeah i ordered mine like mid day on launch day and i just got pushed back to the 12th… i guess im not that upset since im saving 125 bucks

    • MITBeta

      I got the story that they got in 500 to fill 1000 backorders and that it was all Samsung’s fault.  I cancelled the order and went with Amazon for $229.  Should have done that from the start…

  • geek_grl

    Ordered around 11 am on launch day, took SIX DAYS for carrier approval on an upgrade which is just ridiculous since Amazon can do it in 60 seconds… now backordered to 12/30, I’d be shocked if I saw it before next year. Oh well, at least I saved a chunk of change.

  • Kenneth Obyrne

    I had mine backordered till 12/30, for a short time prior it had said 12/21, and it shipped today instead!! Happy boy I am, definitely worth the savings to me just to wait a week and a day. My shipment is not yet trackable, and the notice came in after 5 PM so I believe it’ll be here on Friday. If you haven’t, you may want to check your inbox. 

    • jerry turner

      I got the same thing. The wait wasn’t so bad for getting it pretty much half off. I think they should be at our doors Thursday. I checked my tracking and it said it was shipped next day air which means Thursday.

    • Evan

      When did you order? it would be a nice christmas surprised if it just shipped 🙂

  • jerry turner

    This is starting to get annoying. I ordered about 15 mins after it went live but I am backed ordered until 12/30. I have waited this long and to save the money I will probably just wait it out but come on. I this rate I am not going to see my phone until probably a week into Jan 2012. Not a fan.

    • Anom

      you’re really that mad because its coming two weeks later? jesus man go outside

      • jerry turner

        Are you really that lame to feel the need to post a reply like that? You probably need to heed your own advice and so you can stop getting your rocks off by being a DICK on the Internet….

  • Melancon

    Yup, mine went from 12/19 to 12/21 to 12/30 too.

    I saw some people who also had that happen but had their orders changed to SHIPPED about an hour ago. Mine unfortunatley never changed but when I click on my order number it doesn’t even say backordered on the detailed order page. Dunno wtf is going on…

  • Anonymous

    I ordered mine at 4:30am est and was backordred to 12/19. I checked this morning it got bumped to 12/21. I just checked now and it says 12/30! Wtf! How do you expect a shipment to come in and just change it for over a week later. I might wait it out bc its a cheap upgrade.

    Anybody call them lately to see the status of their expected shipment?

    • I’m in the same position as you. I made my order 20 minutes after it went on sale and now i’m back ordered til 12/30. I chatted with a CSR and she told me they wont have anything coming in till then. I even offered to pay more if i could get it by Christmas and she still said no. haha but oh well, it is what it is.

  • Melancon

    I ordered as soon as it went live @b6498b5268ed086c731beb88fde03df4:disqus  3:15am EST. Once carrier approved my order was backordered to 12/19. Today I woke up and it said 12/21. Anyone else have the same problem. And if for those who ordered and received their GN do you think if mine is backordered to 12/21 I’ll receive it by 12/23?

    • Guest

      Check it again mine said 12/21 as of Noon EST now its 12/30 and they mean they ship it with in 24 hours not overnight shipping its word play they use.  They ship it ups ground so maybe another week after its shipped you’ll get it.  google letstalk reviews and you will see a laundry list of crap they pull. I wish I never ordered from them.

  • Bpdonovan88

    mine is on back order and now i get an email from customer service saying they want my SSN and verizon password? yeah right, i’m all set..

    • Evan

      yeah i keep getting issues with a credit check… and im not even the primary line. of course they emailed me today and i cant even call them because its sunday… at least im not losing any time since its so back ordered.

      I dont think they’re trying to steal your information, letstalk is a legitimate site i think just this whole wave of GN orders has overwhelmed them. When i called in the first time I got someone on the phone in under 5 minutes and they were very helpful with the steps i needed to take. They said even though verizon has all of the information, they can’t verify anything with verizon until they have the right information to give them. They received information for the primary account and now for some reason they want more information from me, seems like a mix up, hopefully going to get everything straightened up… really dont wanna pay 250 for the phone from amazon or 300 in store, 175 is worth a little more time and work in my opinion.

  • Chargerfanray

    Ordered phone when phone became avail. Went on back order.  Yesturday went avail 12/19. Which is fine with me. I dont have to pay 299. Have waited for this phone, so its no big deal waiting a week or more longer….Its just a phone. All You that bitch and moan that they cant wait really need to get a life, its just a frickin phone.

    WARNING: Watch out for “LetsTalk.com”..

    I order the Nexus early… They took my order… and then by the next evening it went into  “back order”… so they gave me a $25 credit, while I waited for the Nexus…
    I tried to use the credit on an case for a different phone I have… they took the order and gave me a “delivery date” for next week…. 15 minutes later they email me that the case is “back ordered” too (with delivery “unknown”)… WHY TAKE THE ORDER!!!
    BTW… if the case doesn’t become available within 10 days, the order will be cancelled and I lose the credit.. WTF…

    Are these guys jokers or are they scamming???
    So be careful….

    Pretty bummed I got back ordered even though I ordered within 20 min of the phone being released on their site, but oh well at least i’m not paying $299 :/

  • Bill Anderson

    I received my LetsTalk GN this morning. It wouldn’t activate so had to call them. I immediately got a real person, they figured out the problem in about 30 seconds, and I’m now rocking a fully functional GN! 

    +1 to LetsTalk!

    • Hguer1

      Lucky dog!!!! 🙂

    • Yeah, they have great customer service. All of their reps are supposedly based in TX. From what I understand, they take pride in not outsourcing and in their reps being well trained.  I’ve now ordered 2 phones from them and I don’t think I’ll ever order from anyone else again – especially not the Verizon stores, which often take you an hour or more to get a phone and get out the door.

    • Melancon

      How long did it take from shipping confirmation to getting to your door??

  • J Dub

    Wish I would have know that Wal-Mart uses Letstalk for it’s cell phone orders. Assuming that you could have got it through them and used the same coupon code AND then use any gift cards for Wal-Mart you have laying around. I have a $75 gift card that would have made it $100 out of pocket.

    Last night customer service rep said they expected to ship more orders Monday or Tuesday.  This morning customer service rep said “a couple weeks”.  Now my order status says expected availability 12/30.

    I think I’m going to keep my order, and if Amazon has a good sale between now and then, I will cancel.  Finally got through Carrier Approval after jumping through 300 hoops.

  • My order now says backordered – in stock on 12/19/11

    • Yeahyeahyeah

      Really?  How early did you get your order in?

  • Nobletaratino

    I have canceled my upgrade order, I placed my order 6:40am est on Thursday with a in-stock status with waiting on carrier approval. check today my status is changed to backordered in stock unknown with carrier approval still waiting it shouldnt take freakin long for a carrier approval if amazon and verizon do it insantly on checkout and wtf with the changing my status if an order is placed as in stock you suppose to secure the phone already.

  • Cafalldavies

    Has anyone had any success pushing the Carrier Approval through? Did you call Let’s Talk or Verizon to expedite the process? I’m an upgrading customer and I’ve been stuck on Carriar Approval for 24 hours now 🙁

  • Tech Guru

    Bah..order was cancelled.  They don’t do “early” upgrades (before full 2 year contract is up).  This is a blessing in disguise though – I think everyone is just buying the phone on impulse…although at $150 you REALLY can’t go wrong, and congrats to anyone who got it for around that price.  That said, I would NOT pay anything more for the phone, and here’s why:

    Yes, the G-Nex is likely the nicest phone out right now, but we’re *very* close to the availability of quad-core smartphones, with just as nice of an HD screen (possibly even better and non-pentile), and likely far better cameras.

    Yeah it seems like there’s always newer tech right around the corner, but with new tech it’s now a matter of timing. You have to jump in right at the emergence of the new tech, and that’s where we are right now – only a few months away… dual-core phones will then be old news, while quad-cores will likely persist for at least a year or longer.

    • We’re not going to see quadcore phones until Q2 of 2012 at minimum. Too long of a wait for me, and the specs on this phone do everything perfectly.

  • Anonymous

    Just talked to them after getting the “credit check” email and they had to correct a mistake with the plan I picked, but all is well now.
    They said hopefully I will be covered with the next shipment because they placed a BIG order with samsung that should be shipping in the beginning of next week.
    Oh and I put my original order in yesterday around 10am EST

  • JamesR

    So I got the “Credit Check” message and called them to try and verify my account.  I asked them how the back-order queue works and they said that they wait until your order is “verified” with Verizon wireless to put you on the list.  It sounds like I wouldn’t see the phone until next year even though I ordered before 8AM EST on Thursday!  They couldn’t give me any sort of timeline what so ever so I told them to just cancel it.

    • Drolls54

      i wish i got an email staing that then just wondering i have been on carrier approval for 24 hrs

  • jerry turner

    Really not happy my phone is back ordered. I ordered at like 3:27am EST but I am an upgrade. I probably would have orded faster if the site was easier to navigate.

    And FYI, I talked to Lets Talk eariler because I accidently picked an individual plan instead of a family plan and I was able to get my 700 minute family plan and $10 added text (which is what I had before) instead of having to go to one of the unlimited text plans. This actually made the phone 164.99.

  • admin strator

    Whew, big relief!  The phone is at the DFW airport, and will be delivered tomorrow.  FYI, I placed the order at 3:20am EST, new VZW customer, paid $155 total.  Was back ordered earlier today, but it cleared up on its own.

  • let’s talk about wasted time

    I placed my order online at 4:30 AM, EST, after a great deal of fiddling around in an effort to get a deal on the phone without getting screwed on the contract (the large discount advertised up front was tied to a plan that would have added almost $500 to my costs over the life of the contract – not what I regard as a great deal). After shuffling things around several times, I was able to keep the plan I wanted and use the coupon to knock the price of the phone down to $225 – not as good as advertised, but better than $300.

    My status changed to “backordered” late this afternoon, at which point I cancelled the order and ordered through Amazon Wireless, who are offering the Galaxy Nexus for $199, WITHOUT any constraints on which plan you choose (I believe it’s $150 for new customers, but I’m a renewal).

    In short: if you’re not interested in paying for unlimited texting (an additional $480 over two years), Amazon Wireless is not only cheaper, but easier as well. That “carrier approval” that everyone here seems to be waiting on? AW checks it DURING the checkout process, in under a minute, and lets you know that you’re approved before you wrap up the order.

    Shipping dates are anyone’s guess, regardless of where you order. Amazon’s estimating a 12/30 ship date, which is fine with me – I’m not in any hurry. LetsTalk doesn’t have any firm dates, but at least they’re doing their best for all of you who can be bothered to stick with them.

    • I currently don’t have an Unlimited Text plan either, but with Letstalk that changed to Unlimited. I did a chat with VZW and they said I can change back at any time.

      • Mike Calhoun

        If you change it back before 6 months have passed, LetsTalk will charge you $250.  You can’t downgrade your plan for the first 6 months without going through LetsTalk first.

        • how do you know that? link anywhere?

          • yep

            Gotta watch out for that fine print. If you don’t mind waiting a few weeks for the phone to ship, you could see if Amazon Wireless is still offering it for $199. They were last night when I ordered, and they should let you keep your current plan. They’ll also do the carrier authorization for you during the checkout process, so you won’t have to wait in line for that like you apparently do at Let’s Talk.

            On the plus side, LT just sent me a $25 coupon AFTER I cancelled my order, so I’ll probably pick up some accessories from them at some point. I think they’ve caught on to the fact that a lot of people are less than thrilled with their handling of this promotion, so it’s nice that they’re taking steps to get people taken care of.

          • Thx for the heads up. Ordered the GN from Verizon (billed to my phone bill, didn’t feel like paying $250 up front). And, I got that same email from LT. $25 coupon, its the least they could do for all my troubles.

          • cool

            Glad it worked out.

    • Tech Guru

      It was very easy to select a $10/1000 texting plan… I didn’t have to choose unlimited. With that $10 texting plan and the 700 family talk (all of which I already have – I’m an upgrade), the phone ended up being only $169.

      • fair enough

        I’ve seen a number of people on here who were able to stick with the plan you described, but it didn’t show up as the cheapest option for me (I don’t remember if it showed up at all) – perhaps because I’m not on a family plan? The cheapest plan that it would let me pair with the discount was the $59.99 talk/text (plus a data package). I’m currently on a $39.99 plan that I don’t come anywhere close to topping out on, so I didn’t feel the need to add $20/month to my payment.

        Going through Amazon Wireless and paying a few bucks more for the phone (still only $200) to keep my current plan and save almost $500 over two years was the right decision for me. Other people’s mileage will vary based on their existing plans and usage.

    • a pleasant surprise

      An update to my earlier post:

      Amazon Wireless’ projected ship date appears to have been fairly conservative. I just received notice that the phone shipped, so I’ll have it well before the 12/30 date that I was anticipating.

      I don’t know if that means that third-party vendors in general are getting prompt new shipments of these phones, but if so, hopefully those of you who stuck with LetsTalk will be coming out of the back-order queue pretty soon if you haven’t already.

  • Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! My husband waited on the phone for 1.5 hours to try to talk to someone… no go. : ( Not sure what we’re going to do! The price is great, but… COME ON! 2 more weeks? And, that’s not even a guarantee!!! 

    • J Dub

      Everywhere basically sold out yesterday. Amazon showed backordered. Call a couple local stores and they were also all sold out.

    Dear Customer,
     
    At this time, we are checking the eligibility of your number. We are working with your carrier to see if the number you provided is eligible for an upgrade. Due to the amount of request we are working thru; it may take up to 24 to 48 hours to validate depending on the volume your carrier is working thru.
     
    Side note: I did notice you order the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung. At this time this product is on BackOrder. It may take up to 2 weeks to fulfill your order.
     
    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
     
    Thank you for your time,
    Customer Service my response to an email at the help desk 

  • Jaime

    just called 877-947-3460, the number someone else had provided. I was told the GN was backordered for about 1-2 weeks (at least for my order, I’m an upgrade customer, ymmv). Given that it was going to be a xmas gift, I cancelled the order. 10 seconds later I had a confirmation email. All-in-all, the ordering and cancelllng process was much smoother than with wirefly, which I have used in the past. Too bad I have to find a different source for my next phone.

    HEY LARS, YOU JUST MOVED UP THE QUEUE!

    Hope everyone gets to enjoy their phones soon,

    Jaime

  • RichE.

    I ordered three Nexus phones, two add a lines and one upgrade.  I placed my order at about 11am EST.  I received an email a short while later saying all three were back ordered.  Now I just got email with a tracking number, saying both add a line phones have shipped.

    • Kenneth Obyrne

      That sucks for me then I was up till 3:30 for the deal, just got my e-mail that says I am backordered indefinitely. Might be some truth to the upgrade vs new lines thinking, or you got one of the last ones accounted for and now the e-mails are being sent. I can’t be that mad at them though, even amazon has been listed as backordered all day. 

  • ok, I’m still on BACK ORDER. For those who were on BACK ORDER, and now are getting it shipped, are you guys NEW VZW accounts? Cuz i’m an Upgrade order. What’s the deal?

    • I upgraded and “added line”. The phone left Texas a little under two hours ago. What time did you place your order?

      • around 2am last nite. I’m in no rush, just didnt expect a Back Order so fast. Great deal though, can’t complain that much. Hope it ships soon.

  • So, I placed my order at about 10am CST this morning. At around 11am, they emailed me to say that the phone was on back order with the estimated date of “unknown.” Not wanting to wait, I attempted to cancel my order by contacting them via email.

    …as of 3pm CST, I have a shipping confirmation email with a UPS tracking number and no email response to my request to cancel.

    Can’t decide if I’m upset or not but….I guess I’ll take it?

    • gilrain

      I ordered at nearly the same time, and also cancelled once it seemed likely that all but the lucky few would be waiting at least a week. I wouldn’t be at all upset to have the same happen to me!

    • gilrain

      Incidentally, were you signing up as a new Verizon account, or as an upgrade? They mentioned that new accounts would have priority, so that could explain it.

      I’m an upgrade.

      • Yeah, I’m a new account.

        Still no update on UPS but my order page on LetsTalk shows it as shipped today and gives me the tracking number.

  • Anonymous

    I was waaay too unsure and uneasy about LetsTalk.com’s disclaimer on “keeping your current data plan … but only if Verizon still offers it” stipulations. Kellex was saying there would specifically be a “Keep Unlimited” option, but there wasn’t, and everyone else was saying to go through the order process in good faith, basically.

    Then I had worries about losing my unlimited data by upgrading to a 3G phone to a 4G phone, so I called Verizon and got 2 different answers.

    By the time I made my decision this morning, the phone was on back order at letstalk.com, LOL, when just 30 minutes prior it was still in stock.

    I ended up hitting a vzw retailer down the street on my work break and picked up the damn phone.

    At least I can say I have the G-Nex in my hands RIGHT NOW 😀

    If i’m on a family plan and im not the primary line, do i do the added line or family plan when im selecting my options (before in the cart)? I have an available upgrade on my line.

    existing verizon customer -> upgrading phone w/ contract -> upgrading added lines OR upgrading family plan?

    I am not the primary number, i am a second line so i would be upgrading an added line yes? and the 9.99 in my cart wont be charged its just for verification with verizon, yes?

    thanks

      The question now is whether the “picking” process means they have a phone, and if so, whether it makes the FedEx shipment.  I’m told the last shipment is 7pm Central time (warehouse is in TX).

  • Anonymous

    Well, here’s some progress.  My order just got moved to “picking,” and taken off backorder.  Estimated shipping Fri, estimated delivery Monday, but I’m hoping they get it out today.

    This should make the earlybirds feel better.  Some people who ordered at 9-10am weren’t on backorder, while those of us who ordered in the middle of the night were.  I ordered at 3:20am EST and my carrier approval wasn’t till about noon, and I’m now off backorder.  That’s at least a good sign.  Good luck to everyone else, too!

      More progress.  Now “picking” has changed to “activation.”  This is torture. 😉

      • Anonymous

        Awesome!  I just moved out of activation and to “ready to ship.”  ETA is tomorrow.  I guess there is hope.  Too bad there is such anxiety about this, but with the investment so many have made in this device, it’s understandable.

  • Drolls54

    Note: Please rest assured, any backorders placed will get filled as soon as we get inventory. We’re currently working vigorously with the carrier to secure more phones. It may take one to two weeks. You can request to cancel your order any time by emailing us your name and order number to [email protected] and a representative will process your cancellation within 24 to 48 hours. You will receive a confirmation email shortly after your order has been cancelled.

        3:30am EST.  I called at 9am EST and my order was pushed past pending approval.  I called to make sure all was done correctly and all my current voice/data/discounts would remain the same with verizon.  All was a YES!

    “Backordered-In Stock on unknown” Is what I’m getting… FFS I ordered this only 10 minutes after it was available. What happened to first come first serve?

  • The magic cancellation number is 877-947-3460.

    • Randy Levine

      what number is this? when you call it just says “customer service” and not the business name. where did this number come from?

      • It was posted on the Facebook page by another user.  Yes, it does say “Customer Service,” but they will ask you for your account information (order number, address) and will tell you what you ordered (and at that point will start referring to themselves as LetsTalk).  You can then cancel the order and they’ll send you an e-mail.  Not sure what sort of back door access this is, but it worked, and I received the order cancellation e-mail in under a minute from when the rep cancelled the order.

  • Anonymous

    So if I haven’t received an e-mail saying it is backordered and won’t ship … but it does say backordered on my receipt when I look at my order page.

    I was notified that there was an error with the information I provided on the web site.  When I spoke to the customer rep to correct it (approx 130 EST), I asked if it would still ship today and she said it should.  No mention of a backorder or anything. Interested to see how this plays out.

  • P4mc

    Damn it! I just got off the phone with a LetsTalk Rep and he said that they wont allow early upgrade. That SUCKS!!!!

    • P4mc

      Looks like i’m going to have to cancel my order after all. Also if Verizon doesnt approve of the deal (mine is still have the Carrier Approval status), LetsTalk will notify you and cancel the order. My fear was they would charge me the full price anyway.

  • Randy Levine

    and now their customer service line is just a prerecorded message from the COO. is there no way to cancel an order?

    • P4mc

      call this number 1866-825-5460 and follow the command prompt (whatever you call it). You should get an option to cancel an order

    i noticed it was backordered so i got in the queue for online chat. after dwindling from 172 ahead of me down to 66, they kicked me off chat and sent me to a “contact us” form. now the “chat” button isn’t even on their site anymore. shenanigans.

  • Jay Lefkowicz

    phone is on backorder already.  I placed my order about 9am eastern.

  • I asked her to process my carrier approval, she said they had 1700 verizon orders in the system waiting for approval so it might take a little bit.

  • Anonymous

    I’m kinda pissed that I got up at 3am to put in the order.  I couldn’t have been that far back, I literally completed the order within 10 minutes of it being posted.  The phone showed “in stock” all the way through this morning.  This is feeling a bit sleezy.

    • Anonymous

      To reply to my own post, I spoke with Lets Talk, and they are clearly underwater.  They should have planned for this better, that was their problem.  Anyway, it sounds like they have some (but not enough) phones that will ship today, more they expect to receive tomorrow, then incoming shipments next week.  Who knows is that’s all true, but I did get the sense that this is incompetence rather than deceipt.  They’re just trying to handle the call volume now.  So even though I’m “backordered,” I was told that I could end up with a phone shipping as soon as today.  I think they put everyone to “backorder” because they can’t assess how many of the orders the warehouse will be able to fulfill.

  • Just got off the phone with LetsTalk customer service. I was told that they have another shipment already on the way and that placed orders should go out the beginning of next week. 

    • Tech Guru

      +1 the rep told me the same exact thing.  For a company that has all these negative reviews on ripoffreport and such, they sure do answer the phone fast in a crisis situation, for what it’s worth.

      I’ve called 4 times and only the first time it rang with no response.  The other 3 times the phone was answered within 5 minutes, and each rep was very polite and knowledgeable.

      • Yup same. First time no response but the two times after that i got ahold of someone quickly. I just hope they get enough phones in to cover all these back orders shipped on Monday

        • Tech Guru

          Yeah, my guess is anyone that ordered within an hour or so after going live should be ok for the first “backordered” shipment next week.  Hell, for virtually half price, I can wait!

  • Thor777

    My order just updated to “backordered” >:( Spoke to their CS and said next shipment is Monday and my order may or may not ship on Monday…….

    • My order is still in “carrier approval” and the rep I talked to said some phones would go out by 7pm tonight.  Hoping mine is one of those.

      • Nevermind, just saw a “Backordered” status on receipt, but I still haven’t received the email some have gotten that said it was backordered, so I am still hoping.  Anyone see a status other than “Backordered – In Stock on unknown”?

  • Jaded99

    Just upgraded both lines of family share through let’s talk with this deal. The $75 only came off one phone so I basically paid $211 for each one, no add’l tax. It says I keep my unlimited data. In “Carrier Approval” status now. She did tell me on the phone that it’s backordered, may not ship until late next week, but in my state taxes are so high that between saving tax and the lower price, I saved $250. Not bad. No one said anything about activation fees though. I am expecting them to be billed to me in the first month, maybe? Anyone know how that works?

    top phones for 2011

    if you waited like I did for the over-hyped phone that is the galaxy nexus…hold off another few months for 13mp, quad core, NFC, micro hdmi, HD phones to come out with removable battery and memory… $300 is a lot of money for a device that will likely lose much of its allure in less than a month when the Consumer Electronics Show kicks off on January 10th(bgr Zach Epstein ) couldnt agree more!!! …

    • It’s so hard to get a hold of them. Their customer service line is blocked and chat is gone. I know I have been waiting forever but a week for $125, think about it.

      Not sure if this will help, but I called Verizon and asked them about my $5 for 500 text message plan that doesn’t seem to be available any more. The lady made a note on my account that noted my concern of losing it after an upgrade(via Let’s Talk) and she said it should stay as is, but if not just call back and a special “team” is assigned to handle those sorts of things.

      I talked to them on the phone, the let’s talk contract is only for 6 months, after that they won’t penalize you, only Verizon will. She said they lose their commission on the phone if you break contract after less than 6 months.

      Everyone always calculates the tax on the the full cost of the phone if you were to buy it off contract.  What carrier doesn’t?

        It will. However, once Letstalk reaches out to VZW they are gonna say you aren’t eligible until your actual upgrade date. been through this before. You can order all day long. You will get an email later today stating that you aren’t eligible for discount pricing.

    • Tech Guru

      Yeah right… phone just rings and rings…and 100 people in front of me in the online chat support queue.  How the hell did you reach a rep????

  • Couldn’t get the discount through this site, since the early upgrade eligibility that Verizon had for me on their site seemed to be a Verizon-only thing.  HOWEVER, when I went to buy through the Verizon site, when I went to checkout, it automatically gave me an additional $100 off discount for no apparent reason making the price almost as good ($199).

    • Anonymous

      any idea how you got the $100 off? What type of phone are you upgrading from?

      • Honestly not sure.  Upgrading from an OG Droid.  In Chicago.  My account said I would be eligible for “an additional discount” as of Jan 03 2012 (this is also when the Lets Talk site said is the first day I could purchase an upgrade through them).

        No explanation or anything like that, and it only showed up when I went to check out.

        • Chicago people are eligible for a $100 discount when upgrading from a 3G phone. Most other people can get a $30 discount.

      • Ah, actually just saw that someone posted this http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/nce0u/3g_to_4g_100_off_device_promotion_for_midwest/ in another comment.  That seems like it’s probably what I automatically got.

    Damn website won’t let me buy it. It says I’m not eligible for an upgrade. Maybe I’m wrong, but when I bought my DX I also “wasn’t eligible” but still got it for $299 because I extended my contract. Shouldn’t that be applicable here as well???

  • CP

    Thanks for the heads up.  Read the website.To upgrade a primary phone on a family plan with corporate discounts, just pick the current plan you already have and do not add a data plan to keep your existing billing. The first data option is for not changing your current data plan.  Discounts are through verizon, they will not show up on a third party website such as let’stalk. I would not want them to have all that info anyway.

  • Drolls54

    is any one eases carrier approval taking forever?

        http://www.letstalk.com/cart/cart.htm

  • Can anyone tell me exactly how I keep my unlimited plan. I don’t see any option at all for that during checkout.

    • On the screen where you see your cart – the pic of the phone to the right and the service choices to the left there is a selection below the service plan that says add/edit services.  Go there, then select your service and it should take you to the next page which is to select a data plan. The first one on the list is an upgrade, with the cost being $0.00.  Select that one. Then click continue above until you are back on the cart screen.

      • Thanks, it worked. Now waiting for shipment. Hope the whole 3rd party store thing doesn’t screw up my account/plan info

        • J Dub

          Shouldn’t if you did it right. Plus, you can always login and make changes to your account and plan on VZW once you get the phone. As long as you don’t cancel your line you’ll be good.

  • Just ordered mine as a new customer!

  • toner

    $175 (:  Thanks for the heads up droid-life, now I hope it’s not a penny on Amazon New Years or something. |:

      Or a BOGO next week.

  • Travis

    its says i am not eligable for an upgrade untill 6/12/2012  but on vzw site, it says eligable for an upgrade..    they did that early upgrade deal on my account.  but still lists it as 6/12/2012  so am i screwed to only be able to upgrade from big red

    • same problem with me. i guess ill have to buy from their stores

    • Tech Guru

      Did it tell you that right away, or after carrier approval step??  Mine is sitting at carrier approval for 6 hours now…

  • What if my phone isn’t up for upgrade and I still go to upgrade my line?

    Gotta love the almost 700 dollars for the non contract version…

    I’m sitting outside a Verizon right now! I will have a nexus in less than 15 min

      I’m about to do the same! On my way in 5 mins!

    • was there a line?

  • Dedxovu

    Anyone know if you have corporate discounts on your account if they will stick around if you order through LetsTalk with the plan upgrade option?

    • Would love to know this as well. I reached out to VZWSupport on Twitter but have not heard back. If I get time later today I am going to call CS and find out.

      • Mike

        +1, need to know if the corporate discount stays

    • J Dub

      Gonna have to say yes. Your bill and what not is linked to your phone number. So as long as you keep your phone number (duh) you will be ok.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know if anyone else mentioned it but with their refer a friend program you and the person you refer can get an additional $25 off. So now with one friend at work, both of our on contract-unlimited data plan phones will only cost $150!!! 

    • You can’t stack the offers.

      • exactly what I came to find out. you can only use one coupon code as far as I saw, please correct me if i’m wrong.

    edit: and for those worried about your unlimited data plan, there is an option to maintain your old data plan.

  • P4mc

    I just saved a bunch of money on my Galaxy Nexus with ^ without switching to GEICO 😛

  • I couldn’t go through with this deal, I have two phones with unlimited data at 9.99 per month, didn’t want to lose that deal, So I had to order this morning over the phone with Verizon, and I got to keep my cheap data and my GN will be here tomorrow!

  • brandon coulter

    BANGER!!!

  • df2rools

    Just ordered mine! was $214.99 for a 4th phone on a newly added family plan after the $75 off.

  • Brent Thomas

    All that and it would not be a better deal for me. I have a $5 text plan and it is not offered through Letstalk. Looks like I will pay the higher price but save in the long run. Oh well I planned in spending $299 anyway.

    • J Dub

      I saw that too, but I think it works to our advantage. We have the cheapest text plan that gets you IN texting, which I think is $10 a month. However, that’s only for 500 out of VZW texts. LT is showing 1000.

  • Lito31

    um i was just about to check out at amazon and it said delivery date dec 29th whoa. i have a feeling ordering now from letstalk would delay it too

  • Miles

    I have 2 phones on my plan.  One is eligible for upgrade, however I want to get the Nexus on the plan or number that does not have the eligible upgrade.  Can I upgrade online or should I go to a store or call VZW?    Also, when I ordered my DroidX, they had a coupon code for VZW to get like 10% off, does anyone know of that for the Nexus?
    Thanks!!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      You can swap upgrades around. I did that with my wife one year. She didnt like her phone and used my upgrade to get a new one (which she also didnt like, doh!)

      • Miles

        haha, first off, I love Flat Stanley..  Second of all.. so if I’m on the VZW Website, do i go through the upgrade process under the “upgrade available phone” ?  Don’t I have to update the calling/data plan as well?  That phone actually isn’t a smartphone.. may be a problem right?

        • KRDM

          If you buy the phone from someone other than Verizon just call Verizon when you get your phone and they’ll handle moving the upgrades around to make it work for you. I’ve done this a few times. Mine was due to the wife dropping her phone :/.

        • Anonymous

          I’m not sure about via the website, but they can definitely do it in-store (that was my experience).

    • J Dub

      Order through LT for the line you have eligible for upgrade. Once it comes in just go online to your VZW account and activate the new phone on your line. It’s not really that phone that is getting the contract extension, but the phone number. So basically the line that has the upgrade available will just go back under contract for 2 years with no phone change.

    • Dude, it’s not cool putting your own referral links on a forum.

  • Lito31

    ahhh dunno what to do, wait the extra day or 2 possibly becasue how reliable is their overnight shipping

  • Tysoncrosby21

    Telling me coupon code is invalid….weird

  • Have to love free overnight shipping and no tax!!

  • RW-1

    If someone can confirm, can I call and have this setup?  I sold stuff to come up with $300 for the thing to replace my OG, so I would be able to keep my current plan (family nationwide 1400 with external company 22% discount, my phone is the secondary, wife’s is primary), upgrade the phone and keep my unlimited as well?

    $174 seems better than $249 …

    I’ll be calling htem at 9, but figured the commnity is faster …

    • The way I have seen it is that they upgrade your calling plan to a higher amount.  My plan is almost identical to yours and it would go up $20 per month.  I think it also takes the data from $20 per month to $30 per month.  ($20 + 4 lines x $10 increase = $60 more per month).

      It is too confusing and not straight forward for me.  If my numbers are correct, then the $75 savings is gone in Month 1 of this deal.  Not worth it to me.

      • RW-1

        I’m thinking that as well, likely going to VZ and try the $100 off mailer ….

  • It seems to have gone up $20 overnight it keeps showing me $195

    • Ulnek75

      it did that for me, but once everything was said and done, it somehow did show a $174.99 price (though mine had additional tax, but minus tax it was $174.99

  • I followed all the steps to upgrade an individual line with my current 900 minute plan and keep my unlimited data and it’s showing $250

  • Tech Guru

    Yeah so I guess Verizon is selling them for $249 if you’re eligible for an upgrade – just checked on my Verizon and that was the listed price.  If I waited till march when my full contract term is up, they would give me an extra $30 off, so it would go down to $219 (assuming the price doesn’t drop any more by then, which is very unlikely).

    So if this order doesn’t go through carrier approval, I always have that to look forward to.  I love what I’ve seen in reviews for this phone, but at no point am I ever willing to pay $300 for the damn thing.

    • Ulnek75

      though your tax to pay would be around $50-60 based on the original price of the phone which is $600-$700.

    • It display as $270 for my upgrade price, not $250.

  • guest

    It really works! I will be getting mine tomorrow. Thanks for taking forever Verizon….booo

    • Ulnek75

      did you already get a reply for your order saying you’ll be getting it tomorrow?  or do you mean you’ll be placing your order tomorrow?

    • Tech Guru

      It went through carrier approval that fast??  Mine has been sitting at that status since 4:30 EST!  I don’t have high hopes right about now…  =`(

      • Ulnek75

        same here.  i think he means that he’ll be ordering tomorrow because carrier approval requires verizon customer service to be open, which they are not since they close at 11pm pacific and the deal didn’t go live until 12:01am pacific.  everyone who is upgrading should all have their orders “pending carrier approval.”  i’m just hoping to get it by friday with no complications.

  • I wanted to do this, but I simply cannot seem to get it right to keep my unlimited plan.  I get $50 off at my local VZW store plus $50 trade in (even on my 5 year garbage phone).  For $25, I will just get it today.  I will be there in 2:10 minutes to get it,.

    • I just found that it forces you to a $59.99 plan at that pricing.  With data and everything else, the bill would be ~$110 a month.  I will just pay the extra at VZW.  The $75-$100 savings will be recovered in just 3 months of bills.  You need to read their T&C’s to know what you are getting into if you have to change plans.

      • Tech Guru

        I don’t know how everyone has such inexpensive plans to begin with!  I have two lines and pay $155 a month, AFTER my 20% company discount… so needless to say I jumped on this deal because I already pay those listed prices.

        • I get 22% off my plan.  I have 4 lines that run me $170 a month.  1400 shared minutes, unlimited text, unlimited data, 10 F&F numbers.  Most calls are routed through Google Voice which don’t eat into our minutes. 

  • Hexadecimal16

    Anyone had any luck getting this to work on a Business Plan? I’m the primary..

  • anyone else worried that the “upgrades only-keep current data features” wont actually work being that unlimited data isnt a VZ data plan anymore?

    • also i guess early upgrades cant receive this offer?

  • Got in on the LetsTalk deal. $175 overnight shipped, kept my unlimited plan, out the door. Awesome deal!

  • $52.92 for tax in California…really??? guess i’m not getting the GN any time soon :'(

  • Stephen

    Does anyone know how you get around the fact that someone on my plan took my lines upgrade, but there are other lines that have available upgrades? I’m so pissed because they just took it last month without telling me, which seems to now make things much more difficult…

    • Matt Antes

      Order it on a different line and then just switch the phones when you get it.

      • Stephen

        what do you mean just switch phones?  won’t my new phone be registered to the other line still?

        • Sinofue

          Should be fine. The phone won’t be registered to any line when it hits your doorstep.

  • If anyone cares just worked for me at 6:00 a.m. eastern. just paid 175 tax free for a Nexus. THANK YOU DROID-LIFE. Was worried I was doing it correctly to keep my unlimited data but the receipt says I selected to keep my current data plan.

  • ordered ^^

  • NEXUS HECK YES

    Anyone know if this will keep a company discount after purchasing?

    • Ben

      I called employee accounts when I worked at VZW (no longer do anymore) if you purchase from another provider it doesn’t keep your VZW discount. If you have a discount through lets say your job (non vzw) you’ll keep it.

      • NEXUS HECK YES

        Awesome. Thanks. I have the 500+Unlimited IN for $10. Although the low up-front cost is enticing, I’d be paying almost $5 more a month over the life of the contract for messaging I won’t use. The majority of my messaging is IN anyway. Too bad. Cheers to those who got it though.

        • Tech Guru

          ?  I hope I didn’t read something wrong but I selected the 1,000 txt plan which was for $10… that’s what I pay already for 500+free IN, so I’m not sure why it’s the same price…

  • Pinshooter

    There is no option to keep your current plan.  I am just not seeing any way to do it.

    • It’s the first option in “Choose data plan” when you go to check out.

  • CaptainHowdy13

    I ordered mine for $209 after discount. Amazing deal. WIll put my feature phone on the new family line and just pay $10 extra per month 🙂 w00t

  • Mcurran64

    Says I’m not eligible for an upgrade. VZW website says I am. Guess I’m paying 300

    • Riky

      You must be an early upgrade too

      • Ben

        300+20 for the early upgrade fee.

    • Tech Guru

      Where did it say that?  Mine is still sitting in “carrier approval”, and unfortunately I think I fall into the “early upgrade” category too. On the Verizon site it does say I’m eligible for an upgrade though, but it hasn’t been the full 2 years.  UGH I was hoping this would go through since my final price was only $165.  =\

        • Tech Guru

          I guess I’m one of the lucky ones as I already pay $69 for just my line (on family plan with wife), so essentially nothing changed.

          Hope this isn’t too good to be true… still waiting on carrier approval…

  • How do you keep existing text messaging plans?  I’m grandfathered into a $10/1500 plan… don’t see the option on LetsTalk’s page?

    • Looks like you have to select a $59.99 voice + txt plan to get it.. if I try to keep my current $39.99 plan 450 min plan + my $10 1500 txt plan it won’t do it.

    Well I chickened out and I’m going to bed.  I guess that’s what I get for being an attorney: I’m often too cautious or wary of something unless I’ve tried it or have someone I trust vouch for it.  Good luck to those who bought it. I’m jelly, but I’ll just head to VZW tomorrow.  To those who haven’t yet bought, caveat emptor and check out the below links. G’nite.

  • Asdasd

    I was reading on Slickdeals.net earlier that someone got an error when they purchased on Verizon’s website saying their current unlimited 3G plan wasn’t compatible but went through fine.

    But when I read the option for LetsTalk:

    Upgrades Only – Keep My Current Data Feature (View Details for Important Disclaimer) If you are an existing Verizon Wireless smartphone customer please select this feature to retain your current data feature. If you do not currently have a Verizon Wireless data feature, your
    current data feature is no longer supported by Verizon Wireless, or your
    current data feature is not compatible with the new phone you have
    selected, we will automatically provision the 2GB Data Package for
    $30.00/month on your line of service.

    The price of your current data feature will not display in the
    cart during checkout, but will continue to be billed by Verizon
    Wireless on your monthly service bill.


    Seems to me that if you get the error from Verizon and you get it here.  They will change your plan.  Be cautious people.

  • Tech Guru

    Well I took the plunge…$165 total!!!  Selected upgrade only data option, and 1000 txt for $10…I’m not even worried if something is wrong with my plan I’ll make them change it at the store.

    Current status is carrier approval — if this actually works that would be insane – a $299 phone on contract for about half that price…seems too good to be true but I guess we’ll see.  Time for sleep!!

    Good luck everyone!

  • Congrats. I’m still debating whether to take the leap. I’m sitting on the credit card info page…

    So you saw the “Upgrades Only – Keep My Current Data Feature (View Details for Important Disclaimer)”? And a 69.99 plan in the “services to be directly billed by Verizon”?

    • Tech Guru

      Yep, then I just selected $10 texting plan, which I already have, and that lowered the price of the phone even more! 🙂

      • I’m seeing that the deal only works with plans $59.99 or higher… if you try and select the $39.99 450 min + $10 1000 txt it’s $194.99.  If you select the $39.99 450 min plan + no texts it’s $224.99.

  • So I’m trying to place my order, then my home internet goes out as I’m ready to check out!  Fortunately, I have a Chromebook with 3G, so I whip it out and use my free mobile data to place the order.  ::whew::

    …But then I don’t know the last 4 of the SSN of the family plan main account holder, and she’s not answering her phone!  I made my best guess from memory, but hopefully, if it’s a problem they’ll give me a chance to correct it tomorrow morning.  Why does VZW have to drop this on us with so little notice?  At least it’s finally coming!

  • Rizheno

    I ordered it. I made sure to check the same talk/text plan I currently have. I’m not too worried about my Verizon plan itself getting messed up as I’ll just call them and have it changed back if that happens. My only real fear is LetsTalk not having enough stock to supply the orders and me being stuck having to wait even longer… Verizon being down doesn’t help, either, being as LetsTalk still has to validate my upgrade eligibility with VZW before they process the order.

    • Jikhead

      Options and data OK.  If you changed your main plan and have VW change it back, you’ll be violating the terms and conditions with Let’s Talk by changing the plan within 180 days; then get hit with that fee and wipe out the discount.

  • CS

    I have the Nationwide select shared 2100 plan but there’s no option showing that..what do I choose!?

  • Btpetrina

    Well I did it, hope I keep my 69.99 plan that has 450 minutes with unlimited everything else

  • Tech Guru

    umm, can’t I just select the $10/1000 texting plan (for my line, I’m on a family plan w/my wife who doesn’t want the phone), which brings the final down to $165 after the coupon code, and then change the plan back to the $5/500 plan that I have now after I get the phone???

    • Be careful with that, if you click on whats my discount it will give you lots of terms and one of them is that you have to do all plan changes with them, if they lose commission on the sale they can charge you for the discount they gave you. 

  • Sorry I’m being such a pussy, but we just got 4G in my town and I’m planning to go WAY over 4GB for the next 24 months.

  • So if it says “Upgrades Only – Keep My Current Data Feature (View Details for Important Disclaimer)” in the “Service Charges To Be Billed Directly By Verizon Wireless”

  • Joc726

    I coupon code per order and so I am upgrading two lines on a shared family plan and doing separate orders.  Primary line $174.99 and then line 2 $194.99, WHY!?!?!?!

    • Joc726

      I just purchased the additional upgrade line on my family plan for $194.99, I will call letstalk.com in the morning to see why the $20 difference

  • Jikhead

    Take note if you are on the $39.99 voice plan:  You will be forced to change your plan to at least the $59.99 if you do this with Let’s Talk.  I am opting out, as I have the $39.99 voice plan, $10 text for non-Verizon customers, and $30 unlimited data = $80.  I don’t need that extra unlimited texting for another $10.  So by doing this, the plan change will wipe out this discount in less than a year.  So for me, or anyone else with a similar plan or no texting, it may not be worth the discount.  Just FYI, and I’ll purchase it from VW.

    • anon

      you can actually still get the $75 off, but from $299 instead of $249.  you have to uncheck the box that says “only show plans that will get me discount price” or whatever it says.  it’s $50 more, but still less than the $299 or $249 prices seen on other sites.

      • anon

        … whiiiich brings the price to $225.  (sorry, it’s late; i’m delirious.) 

  • Anonymous

    fail, you are required to get unlimited texting to get the $155 deal.  Google Voice for all texting is a good $20/month savings

    • Jikhead

      That’s what I’m saying; I’m passing on this deal as it won’t end up being a deal in the long run.

    • Jikhead

      Read my post below Nolan.

    • I pulled the trigger. Seems like too much money to waste just to have the phone one day earlier. I figure I’ll call Verizon tomorrow to make sure my unlimited data doesn’t get screwed up.

    • Guest

      Check out the links I posted below.  I have one in my cart, but I’m not sure if I trust LetsTalk.

    • please note

      if you’re not already planning on paying for unlimited texting, this “deal” is substantially WORSE than you’ll get if you go through VZW directly.

  • Well I somehow got 144.99 for my final price. It changed after I realized I had to recreate my current voice plan (900 minutes and 1K texts). I left the “Upgrades Only – Keep My Current Data Feature” for data, so presumably I’ll keep my unlimited. Folks should realize that LetsTalk has no idea what plan you have, so they can’t possibly say “keep unlimited.” Their caveat seems to be for customers with no data plan at all who nevertheless check “keep my current data feature” – they’re the ones who get defaulted to 2GB or whatever.

    …2GB… *SHUDDER*

  • Melancon

    I’m assuming everyone who is keeping their unlimited data package did not get the proper final monthly charge after placing their order? Mine was $49 without my data plan included….

      You need to find the page that allows you  to select the keep your existing data plan option. Take note though, you may be changing your plan if you don’t see your exact same plan in the list.

  • 154.99 final price overnight to MN, 89.99 to be billed monthly (+35 one time activation)

  • need account number and vzw.com is down, just my luck. SO…. I just typed something in the account number box, will await their call, but if all goes well I just got it for $124.99 WOO HOO!!!!!

    • jerry turner

      I didn’t even see that account number box. I must have missed that.

      • you would have known it was there if it showed up for you. I added a line to my account to have a family plan. what did you do?

        • jerry turner

          I just upgraded one line on my family plan.

  • waste of time

    What a joke – the advertized price is tied to an unlimited talk/text plan that’s $20 more per month than the next plan down. In other words, they’ll gladly give you the phone for half price if they can recoup an additional $480 over the life of the contract with the cost of the higher-tier plan. Should’ve known there was a catch.

    • Bargle

      yep, not much of a deal if you’re not already planning on paying for unlimited texting. You’re better off going through verizon.

  • jerry turner

    Is My Verizon down for anyone else?

    • Jikhead

      Yes, they must be getting hammered.

  • Guest

    None of you guys are concerned with all of the negative reactions LetsTalk.com has online (e.g. BBB, RipoffReport.com, cnet, eponions, etc)? I want to order it and have it in my cart but these comments are scaring me.

  • $227.91, stupid california tax.

    • brett

      seriously… potential $175 purchase turned into $227… sad day

    • a near 30% tax.. end of day, its still cheaper than buying it in a vzw store.

  • whats up with VZW? Crashed? Also Amazon GNex on Back order already???

  • Anonymous

    Just got mine over-night’d for $175, its working now. Also kept my unlimited data plan!

    • curiousgeorge

      What did you select to keep unlimited plan?

  • Kenneth Obyrne

    Originally I was at 194.99 because pre coupon was 269.99 for my low end family plan. But switching from my grandfathered 500 + M2M txt plan for $10 to the 1000 for $10 I got it for $30 less. End of story upgraded for 164.99. But be aware if you have the an outdated txt plan there is no option to keep it, unlike with data which is transferable. Hope this helps someone.

  • Eric Leslie

    You have to know your plan and read nearly every page thoroughly, it is confusing but I upgraded a secondary line for the 174 price listed in this blog post.

  • Benjamin Mackie

    Ughh stayed up this whole time and I got to scared. UGH!!! Getting up early to head into the vzw store and do it there

  • Theandyplan

    ok so after going over this order with a fine tooth comb, i realized that i didn’t have the warranty option selected. it covers drops, spills etc. the catch is that you have to pay up front for 2 years instead of monthly like with verizon. after adding warranty it tacks on another 125 dollars. all of a sudden i’m not saving any money at all…in fact it comes up to being 299.98. so its a great deal if you dont want any insurance..unless i’m completely wrong and the warranty is different from the insurance.

    • jerry turner

      You get a 1 year warranty from Samsung off top. I used to get the insurance but I realized with a smart phone it might not even be worth it considering you have to pay a 100 deductable on top of the month charge. At that point you might as well just get a new phone off Ebay or somewhere like that.

  • I already had the 450 59.99 plan so I guess I wasn’t getting screwed that bad.  I just better keep my damn data.

    • Melancon

      Hey man. I just tweeted you. Can you get back to me as soon as you find out whether you kept unlimited data plan by tweeting me @deadpoolshark

      I’ll do the same.

       

  • college grad

    i’m in nc as well, you know if they’re are anything like the costco online wireless comp. out of Cali, we may not get the phone for upto 7 days. Thats how long it took to get my bionic, and when I returned it, I didn’t get refunded for 28 days.

  • ScottDaMan

    I ordered from Verizon site with overnight shipping, $12.99.

    1 Nexus $249.99
    1 Nexus $199.99
    1 free standard phone

    I had a $100 upgrade offer and a $50 upgrade offer.

    Thing is, at the local premium retailer, they wanted $199.99 and $299.99, and for the standard phone, they wanted to charge $50 with a $50 MIR. Meaning more tax too plus waiting for a stupid rebate to come back.

  • Done :D… How will I wait the day for it to ship?

  • Letstalk – $175.. saved $100!

  • xformulax

    Looks like I’m making a trip to the store… letstalk wants me to drop my cheap 500 minute family plan and pay more, while amazon wont let me keep my 250 texts.

  • college grad

    question, is anyone else on the old and cheap nationwide whatever 500 shared minute plan, they don’t have it anymore and I’m afraid I’ll be forced into whatever plan letstalk defaulted me to

    • Jikhead

      You’ll have to change your plan option to get the discount but can keep your data option.  Probably not worth it, because if you change the plan back with VW CS, you’ll likely get charged that default fee from Lets Talk.

  • jc

    Just got it for 174.99

    • $154.99 here, new activation, $75VZN, **NO** referral code (invalidates the $75VZN code)

      Edit: Looks like the Activation Fee of $35 is also added, but billed by Verizon (again, new service, porting number from AT&T)

  • Arda Akman

    It appears that you have to upgrade your plan to an unlimited txt one to get the $229 or $249 price, otherwise if you want to keep your $39.99 plan price jumps to $299. Not cool

    • Jikhead

      I”m getting the same thing.  I’m not going to force myself from $39.99 to $59.99 in order to save $$ up front.

  • As a California resident eligible for an upgrade from Verizon, my final price was $237.03. A grand saving of $32.96 over what Verizon will charge me if I walk into the store in 8 hours time. Stung by Cali sales tax again!

    I’m going to pass. I’ll have the phone in my hand tomorrow, and I won’t have to deal with UPS, and a company that allegedly has pretty dire customer service.

  • college grad

    done and done..finally no more bitching and stressing out over this phone. now I just hope vz will not force me into getting rid of my outdated but cheaper voice and text plan, as well as, my unlimited data

  • Well. Im going to pass up on this deal only because I have never shopped with LetsTalk and imo they dont have enough good reviews for me to give them my money, id rather spend the extra dollars knowing im definitely getting the device I want with everything I need.

    For those with questions

    To keep your current data – Select the Plan with $0.00.. thats ‘your current data option’To apply the coupon – make sure you input $75VZN correctly in the Coupon Code section

    My Price ended up at 194.99 rather than 174.99 EDIT: Also the actual price I would be paying is $247.91 after the taxes are placed into it.

    Good luck to those who purchased it from LetsTalk

    • I’m in the same boat.. I’m pretty sure I’m going with this deal.  It seems to be the best.  I can get my through VZ for $269.99 with my new every two or $175.00 through lets talk.  I’ll keep my unlimited data and save.  Reading about there insurance I need to keep assuron just in case I lose the phone.

    Two bad posts from 2011 and 2010

  • sdf

    I hope you guys know that when you order from letstalk and keep your current data plan…you’ll get charged an extra $100 cause they make less commission on people that keep their data plans opposed to people switching to the capped plans. So it won’t be the super low price you’re hoping for… Just a tip.

    • Melancon

      So it will be $275? How do you know this??

      • sdf

        Most likely. Back in September they had the bionic up $189.99. Was stocked because it was steal (mind you this was when it first came out). But when I switched   the 2 gig capped plan to keep my current data plan the price jumped to $289.99. Called and asked why, and that was the reason they gave me. Maybe it’s different this time around. Good luck with your purchase 

        • Evo X

          hmm im ordering a rezound for the wife, and they are charging me 227 total for everything…the phone 249.99 minus the 75 plus the tax of 52 in CA and under that box, it says service changes to be billed by verizon wireless is my current plan, and it says “upgrades only- keep current data plan)

          • sdf

            This was back in September, so they could have changed their business practices. But, it also could be because the phone wasn’t marked down that much initially. The bionic I was going to purchase back in September was marked down $110. Just thought I would let you guys know so you wouldn’t be surprised if the price jump were to happen.

          • Melancon

            Did you find out if anyone else had the same issue with the Bionic deal?

          • sdf

            Nope, I didn’t dude. But, the only way to find out for the nexus is to try. So, good luck!

    Duno about LetsTalk. Sounds like they offer a great price by using rebates they never honor.

    Take a look at this thread: http://forums.cnet.com/7723-7817_102-241751/do-not-buy-phone-from-let-s-talk-com/

    Also check out their Yelp page.

    • Synaptic

      reviews are from ’07 bud…who knows…

    • garble

      The thread is from 2007 and written by someone who, if they’re as careful about their rebate submissions as they are about their writing, probably didn’t need any help shooting themselves in the foot.

      Quite apart from that, the above offer isn’t a rebate; it’s a discount subtracted from the phone price at the time of purchase. If it doesn’t work for some reason, simply don’t go through with the transaction.

      • Melancon

        Hey, I hope it’s legit too. Just not the kind of thing you’re looking for when you’re already skeptical to begin with AND, looking at what sdf had to say is exactly the type of shadiness I was implying. What do you have to say about his comment on the Bionic, which occurred just 3 months ago.

When they get on the phone with you tell them that you received a flyer in the mail about $100 off the phone when you upgrade from a 3g to 4g phone. At first he didn’t know what I was talking about, but as soon as I said that it expires December 31st 2011 he “found it”. Have them put a note on your account to take the money off when you buy it. Apparently it is just a Midwest discount, but others around the country have called and had success as well.

    I just did this by calling tech support and applying my early upgrade. When I brought this up they came back to me and said I was already pushing the limit.. so instead I get a $50 discount!!! and I’m okay with this 

    EPIC WIN VERIZON!

    wirefly has the option to keep your current data plan

  • Usofrob

    When looking at the data plan details.  This implies you’ll lose your unlimited plan:

    “If you do not currently have a Verizon Wireless data feature, your current data feature is no longer supported by Verizon Wireless, or your current data feature is not compatible with the new phone you have selected, we will automatically provision the 2GB Data Package for $30.00/month on your line of service. “

    • jerry turner

      Verizon still supports the unlimited plan so I think you can keep it. They just don’t offer it to new customers.

  • clueless

    If I have an ancient phone without a SIM card (an LG Chocolate, to be specific), can I upgrade phones and keep my number without going through a VZW store? I’m about 2 years off the end of my last 2 year contract, and totally clueless about current phones.

    • Anonymous

      VZ phones didn’t have sim cards until really recently (it’s for the LTE) – i’m guessing your fine,  don’t think the number is tied to anything like that.

      As several people have pointed out, the specs are placeholders for a different phone (as are the reviews, etc). A number of people have said that LT offered a similarly sketchy-sounding deal on the Droid Bionic that turned out to be perfectly legit.

    how do you totally keep your current plan? if i go through the checkout process with another phone it wants to charge me an additional calling plan per month. i already selected the 0.00 amount for data but there is no 0.00 amount for minutes?

  • Colin Zack

    Quick question. I’m going to use my mom’s line to upgrade. She isn’t supposed to be due for an upgrade for a while, but under our wireless account online she’s given the option for discounted pricing and when I choose to upgrade using that, the prices are all 2 year prices. Do you think it’ll work for this deal, and how do I use my current number using this process?

  • So If I recently upgraded to a droid 3, will I still get the 175 for upgrades even if I’m not due? Also Think they will have deals on the Droid 4?

  • I’m on Let’stalk.com.  I don’t see the galaxy nexus any-damn-where.

    She said that Verizon would not apply my NE2 discount on top of this one, as it is the largest discount being offered. Haven’t talked with Verizon yet about it, will do now.

    1.  At Best Buy when they sell the phone you can get the best insurance plan
    2.  At Verizon you get Assurion insurance option

    • VerizonHater

      They just released the otterbox I believe.  DL did a post of it like yesterday or the day before.

  • Here’s an interesting note: 
    * Tax is added to all orders shipped to CA & TX and is based on the full retail price or cost of the product. For most new activations, LetsTalk.com pays these taxes for you. So – upgrading a line I would be paying $52 in tax about!

    My concern is I got on this promotion http://bit.ly/cBoJvS over a year ago which gives you $9.99 unlimited PDA for every additional line in your family share plan and if going through Letstalk/Amazon or any 3rd party reseller would nix that I would be out $40 in savings every month which would outweigh the savings in the hardware. The thing is my bill just has me on the 1400 minutes nationwide talk & text plan and then my additional lines get $20 in promotional credits each month so it’s not like some kind of exclusive plan.

    Any one else on the same promotion I am and upgrade through a 3rd party company before?

    On LetsTalk’s Facebook Page they said they didn’t know if they would have enough stock with all the press that they have been getting.

Also the fact I would need to wait an extra day and warranty problems are always such a bitch and so confusing, and it’d be such a hassle to make sure my plan didn’t get messed up.

  • Rafael Gonzalez

    So…Per VZW, I’m eligible for an 12 month upgrade, but i have to pay $20. Would i be able to get this deal via Let’s Talk or walk into Costco for their deal?

    • Highly unlikely. Last I knew, only corporate stores and “Premium Retailers” could utilize ‘annual upgrades,’ which are no longer available after the ones currently in circulation are used. Best Buy does not qualify, as far as I know. Cellular Sales, The Cellular Connection, Wireless Zone, and a few others would be able to based on what I know. National accounts like BB/Target MAY be an exception, but I would be SHOCKED if an internet retailer was able to use those annuals.

    • I understand this perspective, but it’s worth noting that for its weight, plastic is VERY strong. I do not believe that “light” and “cheap” are the same. For the “abuse” that a mobile phone goes through, I think plastic is a very appropriate choice.

      To each his own, though. Tape a few nickels to the back if you prefer something heavier. 🙂

      Good news; the next Nexus device is rumored to be made by Moto. So, maybe in a year we can all get along again.

  • I called Lets Talk.  The lady I spoke with said the price of the phone would be $50 more if I want to keep my unlimited data plan.  Given that I do, and that the savings is still steep (especially with the $75 off coupon), I plan to order after midnight.  New Nexi for the Mrs. and I, and we will save (at a minimum), $200.

    Everyone who says it’s too good to be true… Look up the Letstalk bionic deal when the bionic came out.  They had it for $150 and everyone said FAKE but it was true.  I’m very sure this is the exact same.  You can keep your unlimited, you don’t have any outrageous hidden fees, and the price is low.  I bought the Bionic for $150 and got it.  I’ll prolly get this too.

    • Btpetrina

      superbalde, when you got the Bionic how long did it take to get it?

    • I did the same thing getting my Bionic.  It took 2 days, but only because UPS screwed up (they are awful around here).  But Let’s Talk was great and overnighted me new SIM card.  And the whole process took 15 minutes, as opposed to the hour plus it usually takes at the VZ store.

Its just like wirefly which I have used. they are just a third party reseller just like the guys in the mall. If you have a problem with your service you can take it into a Verizon store and/or call on the phone. If you already have insurance on your phone it should stay on there I have added two different phones to my line and have still kept the insurance. Great Deal!!!! Thanks Kellex

      it looks like it is the specs for the Casio GZ look at the reviews

    what is up with the specs on the page?

  • Officially, Best Buy will match only local stores that have the item in stock. No websites, nowhere that’s sold out.

  • Jake

    I tried using a third party online seller once, but backed out when they asked me for my social security number for the purposes of doing a credit check. I completely understand that the carrier may require a credit check for opening a new line, but in my case I was doing an upgrade with a contract renewal. Can anyone share their experience with LetsTalk and answer whether they require my SSN for a contract renewal?

    Additionally, on the LetsTalk site, the description of a contract renewal says within 2 months from the end of a 2 year contract or within 1 month from the end of a 1 year contract. I’m a little over one year into my 2 year contract, but Verizon allows renewals after the first year, but you don’t get the New Every Two discount, and you have to pay something like $20. Would I be able to upgrade through LetsTalk?

    • Jake – you won’t be able to update from LetsTalk or any other third party re-seller, including Best Buy. I’m in the same boat as yourself and I can only upgrade from Verizon’s website. You’re better off upgrading through Verizon because if you end up not liking the device, the return process will be much easier and they can roll back your upgrade date, all within the Verizon system. Third-party re-seller returns are a hassle. However, my experience with LetsTalk has been great in the past.

      I hope this helps you make a clearer decision.

    • I used Let’s Talk a couple of months back to upgrade to a Droid Bionic and it was a good experience.  Got my Bionic for $175 using a coupon code just like the one cited in this post.  I am irritated though that I called Let’s Talk a few hours ago and the woman I talked to didn’t have a clue about the Nexus.

    Will Amazon have this for a penny?

  • Just called Amazon Wireless, and though the placeholder page is still up ( http://wireless.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Nexus-Android-Wireless/dp/B0061R2A1S ), the rep I’d spoken with 1) Seemed surprised that the page even existed and 2) Had no idea what Amazon’s plans were for releasing the phone.

    Got a follow-up e-mail from them as well:

    Thank you for your interest in purchasing from AmazonWireless. Unfortunately, we don’t know when or if the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G Android Phone will be available on our website.While we receive new phones often, it is difficult for us to predict when a specific phone will be available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and encourage you to check back periodically to review the availability for the phone.

    Oh well 🙂

    • MLahey

      I had an extremely bad experience with my upgrade when I went to buy a RAZR during their deal. Their idea of customer support is:

      1.) The people at the call center can in no way access your account or provide any services, I’m pretty sure these people are just paid to sit there and console you.

      2.) An error in my order caused them to ban me ENTIRELY from Amazon. I could not even access my account to see what was going on.

      3.) In order to recover my account, I had to send AN EMAIL to a support specialist containing private information.

      4.) Nothing was done for a WEEK. Calling customer service only could forward my issue to the same specialist again.

      Needless, don’t use em.

      • MLahey

        I forgot to mention the best part. In the end, all they did was unban me and cancel my order.

  • Anonymous

    That site seems shady, the specs page is all wrong and customer reviews look like they’re for the casio g’zone

  • Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but when a deal seems to good to be true … it usually is!

    • Cam

      It’s because Let’s Talk, and other 3rd parties similar, usually add an additional contract to the deal. If you cancel before that contract ends, you owe both VZW and Let’s Talk each ETFs.

      • Anonymous

        Actually it’s within 6 months…then you owe $350 to Verizon and $250 to 3rd party

        • Anonymous

          And how would the 3rd party collect? It’s not like VZW that can shut off service or what not.

            It’s part of the contract. Dont know if it auto charges to your credit card or they bill you. Failure to pay will ruin your credit if it’s billed to you.

  • LionStone

    You should show your loyalty to VZW after they took care of their customers and came through AHEAD of schedule with the Nexus!! hehe 🙂

  • If you want to keep your current plan, add the galaxy nexus to your cart (at 12:00 am pst) then move your mouse to the top where it has your Cart, then the galaxy nexus should pop up, click on the “add/edit services” and switch from 2 gb plan to “Upgrades Only – Keep My Current Data Feature” and you will keep your unlimited data

    • Dan

      +1 very helpful 🙂

    • For those of you who still have alltel plans (me…), LetsTalk will make you upgrade to a new Verizon calling plan. This wont affect your unlimited data plan or text messaging plan.

      • Bryan James

        Did you find any way around that?  I have an Alltel plan that is better than any VZW and want to keep that.  Saving the $75 doesn’t make sense when switching plans will cost me an extra $15/mo for 2 years

    • thanks

    • Guest

      From what I have read on VZ’s web site, to keep your unlimited data plan you have to buy from VZ. 
      If you buy from a 3rd. party retailer they can tell you whatever but VZ will be sending you the bill and you will lose your unlimited data plan. Just saying, that’s what I read on VZ frequently asked Q&A section on their wed site.

      • Evo X

        Pure BS.  The only way to lose Unlimited Data is to change the Data plan.
        It works through 3rd party retailers.

        I got the rezound thru bestbuy and can go to myverizon.com and still read Xdata/unlimited for my new phone.  You already got a smartphone or got grandfathered into unlimited data then you keep it all with a upgrade

    • Hvkv

      But what if you are changing from a 3G to a 4G? I see nothing listed on the page about “upgrades only” about that.

      • Anonymous

        The plans are the same for 3g and 4g, so unlimited data applies to any phone you get. So if you buy the nexus and upgrade from a droid 1, then you will have unlimited 3g+4g. you just can’t even take the unlimited data off your plan or you lose it. Where have you been since june when we all found this out?

    • Anonymous

      This will keep your unlimited plan HOWEVER, this deal and coupon is good for the 59.99 plan and NOT the 39.99 talk plan. The phone increases to 299-75=224!

      If you get the 59 talk plan it’s 249-75=174.

      I would assume this applies to new lines too. This info is for existing customers with unlimited data who have single lines. I can’t speak for everyone’s plan and combination.

      Just a heads up, don’t get stung with the 59 plan when you intend to get the 39 plan. Their disclaimer states that they can charge you more if you change your plan at a latter time.

      • 4mla1fn

        +1  thanks for the heads up on this.  i did the $59 (nationwide talk/text 450) thinking it’s what i had now.  i actually had nationwide talk 450 + 500 text for $49.  (unlimited is $30.)  without your note, i’d have been spending $10/month more on the voice/text.  i called and was able to change the to the plans.  i had to pay $20 more for the phone but it’ll more than pay for itself in short order.  btw, looks like the phone is now on backorder. i’m betting i won’t see mine til january. 🙂

    • Rich

      Wrong, completely wrong… there is no option that says what you suggest above… there is no option to keep unlimited, there is a button that says keep same carrier tho… they are not the same…

      • Anonymous

        Actually you are wrong. Learn to follow basic instructions, the option to keep your current data is right where they said it is.

  • I dont get it how do you get 150 off the coupon says 75 off and how long does this last for cause i have an early upgrade with verizon and my regular upgrade is on sunday.

  • raphael gray

    The catch is there may be a price difference if u want to keep unlimited data but the rep i just spoke with couldnt look up the price difference for the nexus cuz its not out yet. But we tried the Razr just to see and there was no price difference to keep your unlimited data if that means anything.

I called that 866 number that was posted on that flier on here, that seemed to get me to the right person (failed with normal tech vzw #, they were terrible) this guy even ran a mock order with my line through their promotional order form to see if there was any promos for me to use… no luck.

          I’m available for upgrade in March too, and I went to a local VZ here just to talk to a rep about a possible early upgrade. He said that I have some kind of promo on my account that will allow me to upgrade early for only an extra $20 above the subsidized cost. I logged into my account and sure enough, every phone available only cost $20 more than normal.

          The phone is $250 *IF* you select the $59 talk plan. If you select the $39 talk plan the phone price shoots up to $299.

          299-75=224 (450 voice minute plan pay per message 39/month)
          250-75=175 (450 voice minute plan with unlimited texting 59/month)

          So my price was $224 as well. This is for a single line.

          I use Google voice for texting.

          Hope that explains this. Family and share plans might get the 175 price.

            Agreed…. I have seen this with things as simple as old text plans… once it is off… its off.  I don’t trust anything that changes my plan.  Different company… but AT&T recently “accidentally” deleted a friends free unlimited text when upgrading her to an iphone4… the results… she now pays for an unlimited text plan and has a lot of “i’m sorry about that’s” which she can save up, add $5 to and buy a cup of Starbucks coffee.  Be wary of ANY change to your plan.
