DROID 4 Available Now from Verizon, BOGO RAZR Deals and Double Data Too

Today is a great day to think about picking up a new 4G LTE smartphone from Verizon. Not only do you have the new DROID 4 (our hands-on) to consider, but you can buy a DROID RAZR and receive a 2nd one for free through a BOGO deal that just went live. We were told that the RAZR MAXX would also be a part of this BOGO promo, but VZW’s site doesn’t necessarily reflect that up front. Oh, and if you are a new customer, Big Red will double your 4G LTE data plan from 2GB to 4GB or 5GB to 10GB at regular pricing.

Cheers Marquis!

    BOGO deal for the MAXX seems to be hit or miss.  My girlfriend is on a family plan and she and her sister were due for upgrades.  Verizon said there was no BOGO for the MAXX despite others upgrading.  It’s also disappeared from the deal page.  Oh well.

  • http://twitter.com/DSullivan721 Dennis

    Stupid question but just to make sure… Do the phones both have to be activated on the same account? I’m up for an upgrade and so is my brother but we each have our own accounts..

    • Phoneman67

      Yes they have to be on the smae account.

  • Medic Boss

    What’s the story with one line eligible and one not if both lines are not LTE? I saw something about getting in on the BOGO if you’re jumping up to LTE even if a line isn’t eligible?  My line is eligible (need to replace my OG Droid), but my wife’s HTC Inc 2 (3G) isn’t eligible until 3/13….Also, is 2/20 the definite date for the end of BOGO?

  • Ursoundguy

    I just got off the phone with VZW. Got 2 Razr Maxx on the way to my house for $228 TOTAL!!! They did the BOGO even tho the web site wont let you and added on a $100 4G credit? Not sure why but I appreciate it !!!1 

    • Kamikaze4

      Same here about the $ 100 4g credit!  It was unexpected, but awesome!   Somehow mine was only $184, not sure what the difference is between us, I had a $30 NE2 credit also, but that doesn’t account for the difference.

      • Annesjn

        So is the “$100 4G Credit” for people who don’t have unlimited data?  I have a OG Driod with unlimited data and VZ told me it didn’t apply to me.  

      • Medic Boss

        is the 4G credit in reference to the 4G data plan or upgrading to 4G LTE phones?

  • Anonymous

    I’m waiting for the perfect ICS phone but man, the white RAZR looks soo sexy… *drools*

  • Timarsenault

    Do we know when this deal expires yet? Both my wife and I are eligible for upgrades on 3/2. I am technically eligible for discount now, but a bigger discount on 3/2, and my wife is available only on 3/2

    • Rp780

      I’ve called several Verizon stores in my area & they all say the same thing. “We don’t know when it will end, the manufacturer sets those dates.”

    • NBBChaz

      I talked to one just now and he said the 20th for the Razr BOGO.
      Only one of my lines is eligible right now so I can’t jump on this deal =[

  • Maqsr1122

    If you recently upgraded (within 15 days) to a RAZR MAXX and you thought you missed out on th e BOGO special. Think again. I upgraded to a MAXX last week. I was able to jump on the BOGO today. I just had to pay the tax. Like $50.00. Verizon has a special code for it. Just mention that your still within the 15 days.

  • AntwonJenkins

    Razr Maxx BOGO confirmed. just picked up my 2! must have 2 lines available for upgrades to be able to get it though.

    • RINZLER

      It’s been a good run OG.

    • Phoneman67

      How do you like them so far and how is the screen?  That is what i dont like about the phone.

    • Crescentfreshfm

      I was told by the in store Verizon staff that the MAXX Is explicitly NOT part of the BOGO deal, and that anyone on this site who says otherwise is a damned liar.

  • Phaeton2010

    Just got back from Vz store, got BOGO on Razr Maxx and double data. I upgraded one and got the other on a new line. You can’t do the deal online, if you are doing what I did, but the stores are doing it no questions. Even had a lady from the Vz store across town call me after I bought and was letting me know I can BOGO the Maxx. Also the Chat people tried to tell me that I could not mix and match, that it had to be 2 upgrades or 2 new lines. That is incorrect. The store blew past that without question or difficulty.

  • Anonymous

    Are you allowed to double the data for tethering/ hotspot?

  • Kamikaze4

    Not sure what happened, but as I was on the phone to order the B1G1 RAZR MAXX, the rep said I had a $100 “4g credit” that I didn’t know about, but he said it probably wouldn’t stack with the B1G1 deal.  I even said that’s okay, I didn’t even know about the $100 credit.  But it still stacked anyway, and I ended up paying $183.54 total including tax for two Droid RAZR MAXXs!  Should be here Monday they said.  Does anybody know anything about this $100 4g credit?

    • Anonymous

       Probably a NewEvery2 credit from a few years ago. What phone did you upgrade from?

      • Kamikaze4

        I actually had a NE2 credit of $30 also, that was also factored into the price, so I wouldn’t think that was it.  I’m upgrading from a Droid Incredible that I got in June 2010.

    Anyone know if the Razr Maxx will be available in white? If so when?

    I Just updated my plan too 10 GB for $50.00 (I did have the 4GB for $30.00 befor though)

  • djembeman

    Cool! To bad my wife and I already upgraded to the Bionic and DROID 3. But, you can’t wait forever! !! When I’m ready for a new phone I buy one! The sooner you upgrade the sooner you can get whatever the next best phone is with your next upgrade. Just learn to be happy with your current phone. There is no sense in trying to keep up with all of the brand new phones.

    • Eyeymnepo

       for the most part i don’t read to much about phones coming out if i am not looking to buy. that way i don’t get all caught up in man wish i could upgrade to that thing. i keep on on basic specs and stuff though so i know how the phone world is progressing. but typically if i don’t own it or have plans to i mostly avoid it.

  • Jp74dyz

    Just got the razr maxx sunday, gonna go to the store to get a second one……i upgraded from the Droid X (which i loved) but the Maxx is the BOMB!!! It just needs the update (hopefully soon) to ICS and it will be the double bomb!!!!!

    • Jp74dyz

      Make that get the second one for free (another line eliglble).

    • Kevin Parlee

      Yea, the Maxx is the DX on steroids. Glad you like it, i would love to play around with one. i had the DX as well and loved it

  • guest

    This is total garbage for people who upgraded a month or two ago. I didn’t think they did these promotions until almost end of life? I guess with Motorola that’s like every 2 or 3 months. Way to screw over early adopters Verizon! All carriers suck. I laid out $600 to buy two razrs. I could have gotten 2 of the better model for $300. Nice jerks.

    • Eyeymnepo

       my og, d3 and now razr maxx were all bought bogo. i try to always for the deal, because they usually run them pretty quickly after phones come out. i do understand why you are mad though. with the phone business these days its best to make sure you are ok paying the price you pay, and then never look back once you do. there is always a better price or something better.

    • Robsmith Nikon

      That’s what happens when we buy early.  You get the latest and the greatest… but you do not get the deals.  I bought the OG Droid when it was new… $600 for two and had to suffer as the prices dropped and other phones rolled out.  Now… several years later… I have two brand new Gnex’s… $600 for the two and I will no doubt watch quad core phones take rise and fall before I buy new phones.  All you can do is decide what you want… the latest phones or the best prices.

  • DroidQuestionMan

    Does anyone know if the D4 is available at Costco yet?

  • LegalAmerican

    What is it about Nexus owners that makes them think they have to attack all other phones?  Guess what……..I don’t like the Nexus!  Imagine that!  I know you Gnex owners can’t comprehend this, but i’m about to blow your minds………I wouldn’t trade my Bionic for TWO Nexus’.  No one cares if you don’t like the Razr.  Other people don’t like your Nexus.

    • Ron Perlman’s Jaw

      They think their isht don’t stink.

    • Jeres88

      you really shouldn’t generalize so much. I own a Nexus and have never deliberately attacked a phone for no reason. In fact, I feel that the RAZR/MAXX is one of the best phones on VZW. Also, go to a galaxy nexus forum sometime, the RAZR/Rezound trolls are just as bad about attacking the Nexus.

      • LegalAmerican

        I generalize because the Nexus Owners that are like that, are generally the ones that open their mouths.  And I agree, Razr fans were HORRIBLE for a while, but then the vocal Gnex owners put them to shame.  I apologize for the generalization, and thank you for not being that way.  My comment is meant for the Gnex fan boys who are blind to the fact that every phone has bugs, and some are easier to deal with than others depending upon your needs.   And I really do not like the Nexus.  It’s a great phone, it has amazing capabilities, but it isn’t for me.  Some people feel like they have to shove their phone down everyone’s throats.

      I wont attack the phone, it’s a fine device. I will attack Motorola for their blame deflection and dismissal of consumer complaints.

    • Robsmith Nikon

      The bionic sucks.

      Nexus is the Best phone ever, idk wtf your talking about man

  • Allen

    yeah, how do I do this BOGO deal to get it? and can I do it if I am an existing customer? anyone know?

    • Eyeymnepo

       i had to call over the phone. couldn’t get it to show up correct online. had a pretty nice sales rep from verizon. didn’t push to sell a bunch of other crap. gave me his direct number to setup the phones when they arrive since once of them is going to a different line.

      • Allen

        Thanks I will try calling them after work.

  • http://twitter.com/dimitri407 Rob Gora

    Wish I could get the double data for my Xoom.

  • Jak_341

    I guess this means VZW is cutting its losses on the RAZR. Sales have been flat on them since day 1. GNex rendered this phone DOA. Probably for the best though to simply walk away from it. Every one sold is a vote for locked bootloaders and buggy UIs.

    • Eyeymnepo

       looked bootloaders aren’t that big of deal. it’s not great, but someone always finds a way to root. my droid 3 is far from stock, and my razr will be rockin’ custom touches as soon as i get it.

      • https://plus.google.com/114483312559013915960/ Timoh

        Rooting and 2nd init still can’t replace radios or kernels. It is a limit.

        I’m not going to argue what device is better than the other. Only saying this; Whether you want bootloader access or not, we buy the devices, we should be allowed full access to them. Motorola has excuse after excuse when people complain to them about various issues. They seem intent on blaming others instead of giving the consumer what they are asking for.

        • Eyeymnepo

           i agree, but just remember the “consumer” typically has no idea what a bootloader is. i know these things are important to us, and even though justified we don’t have the masses support.

          • https://plus.google.com/114483312559013915960/ Timoh

            Which is even more reason for them to leave them unencrypted. Lock the hell out of them, nobody cares. The problem comes when they encrypt it.

            If the average consumer doesn’t know or care, and we are the extreme minority, there’s no reason at all to encrypt them.

            The amount of sales they would gain(from us and people we recommend their direction) would far outweigh and fraudulent returns where people softbrick their phone. They’ll still make profit selling them as a refurb. They could even incorporate the same system as the xoom where if you do unlock the warranty is void.

            Instead they make up bs about “regulatory and carrier guidlines” and “customer safety”

            It’s always someone elses fault. I don’t put up with that type of mentality in people, I sure as hell wont support a company that acts that way.

          • Ron Perlman’s Jaw

            Here’s a reason.  A simple google search for “my [insert phone name] is running slow” returns numerous results for discussions from forums such as this, AC, XDA, etc.  Not until you get to the 2nd or 3rd page do results come back from the manufacturers’ sites.  Most people take the first few results and look for their answer.  Those first few search results are normally a discussion about rooting and under/over clocking, etc.  There is a huge potential for people who don’t know what they’re doing to brick the ever-lovin’ crap out of their phones.  Those forum discussions make it seem like this type of stuff is so simple that anyone can do it.  Not everyone should try it, but they probably will based on the positive feedback by those who know what the hell they are doing.

          • https://plus.google.com/114483312559013915960/ Timoh

            The bootloader doesn’t prevent over/underclocking or voltage manipulation. That can all be done with root access, which will never be prevented.

            On top of that, it would be easier to over/underclock for those people with a simple kernel flash. If the warranty were void on unlock, people wouldn’t be able to return the device(without fee).

            Also, all those step by step instructions for the processes have huge disclaimers about the potential risks.

    • Anonymous

      oh gnex troll…dont get me wrong i like the gnex and all but i will be getting the maxx because of battery and radio quality. I can live with blur since i dont rom, root is all i need. thanks for your trolling now back to your cave

      • Robsmith Nikon

        The battery things seems odd to me.  I bought the extended battery ($25 at the time) for my GNex while getting the phone.  Right away I was getting 10 hours on a charge with average use.  I expected much worse.  I rooted the next day and running setcpu I get an easy 12-15 hours on a charge with moderate to heavy use.  I wouldn’t mind getting 2 days or so out of a single charge… but unless you rarely get to a charger or plan to watch 10 hours of movies on the phone everyday… I wouldn’t focus on battery life as my primary reason for buying a particular phone.

  • Guest

    If you have a upgrade on one line, can you use the free phone on another line that is not available for an upgrade?   Is the double data just for new lines or can it be used on lines upgrading to a smart phone?

    • Eyeymnepo

       once you get the phone you can move it to any number your currently have, even if it was not available for discount. double data is for any line new or old. just don’t move to double data offer if your currently have unlimited.

    • https://plus.google.com/114483312559013915960/ Timoh

      If you’re upgrading the second line to LTE from 3g service they will very likely push up your renewall date.

      • Guest

        Really.  My wife has an upgrade available and mine isn’t for another month and a half.  I would love it if they would push it up.  

        • Ron Perlman’s Jaw

          Check your account.  My secondary line upgrade is available as of 2/5/12 and the primary as of 3/20/12.  Both lines are saying that I can upgrade at a discounted price.

  • Eyeymnepo

    got the two razor maxxs this morning bogo. can’t wait to for them to get here. was also pretty happy that i can trade both my d3′s in for a total of $140. Which is pretty good because we got them BOGO for $150 about 7 months ago.

    • Anonymous

      i would have given you 150 for one:/

      • Eyeymnepo

         i still have them both.

  • Michael Forte

    I’m so glad I still have unlimited data. 

    • Naomi

      True that.

  • guest

    Do you have to be a new customer to get the BOGO deal on the Droid Razr?

    • Eyeymnepo

       no just have available upgrades for two phones or add line(s)
