DROID 3 Drops to $49 on Contract to Make Room for the DROID 4

Last week, the DROID 3 dropped all the way down to $99 on contract moments after Verizon and Motorola officially introduced the DROID 4. This week, they hacked another $50 off of the price, making it available for $49 through February 6. If this was a sign that the D4 should be upon us at any second now, they I don’t know what it is. If you can live without 4G LTE for 2 more years, then this is a deal worth considering.


Cheers Jonathan!

    Only for new plans.  Upgrade is $149.  Most people looking for the D3 are upgrading, so this does not apply to most of us.

  • $49 price is for new plans only ($150 promo discount).  Upgrades are $149 ($50 promo discount).

  • $49 price is for new plans only ($100 promo discount).  Upgrades are $149 ($50 promo discount).

    Got mine free today from Wirefly with free 2 day shipping, free Motorola Dock and free Motorola Car Dock too.  This was an upgrade on the main line of a family plan, on which I transferred the upgrade from another line on the account.

    As long as you don’t mind sitting through about 30-45 minutes of someone in a foreign accent reading to you off a script about how you will drop your phone and if you have screen protector you will be taken care of, otherwise you have to pay $500 for a new phone.  Also tried to sell me a car charger 4 different times.  Each time I reminded him that the free Car Dock that is included comes with one.

    There was a $1.00 hold placed on a credit card to verify the purchase, but other than that, my invoice shows 0 top to bottom, and about 2 hours after I got off the phone I got the ship notification and tracking number.

    TL;DR: It can be had for free, as long as you don’t mind saying no for 30-45 minutes

    If they release ICS for the 3, deal.

    If not, no deal.

    No way to predict either way.

        VZW says this is for a new line only.  Has anyone had any luck with an upgrade ???

          It was free even as upgrade from Newegg the other day. You also got a free car mount and dock, one sweet deal.

      There’s already a daily driver worthy ICS rom out there for the D3, Few things are buggy as expected as it’s in alpha stage atm. Otherwise, hardware acceleration on the droid 3 really steps up it’s UI experience.

    …or just get it for free from Wirefly

    Off topic, but I’ve heard that the HTC Edge will be coming to VRZ…that’s way the price of the Rezound drop to 199.99
