DROID RAZR Available From Amazon for 1 Cent on Upgrades, New Accounts and Lines

Amazon pinged us this afternoon to let us know that the DROID RAZR (16GB) is on sale for $0.01 or 1 penny. If you have an upgrade available, this includes you as well. New customers, upgrades, and added lines are all included in this promo, something rarely seen except on special occasions.

While this phone may not include the 3300mAh battery of its younger brother, the RAZR MAXX, it is still one of the better phones on Verizon to this day. It also has a sizable developer community that grows by the day.

Amazon Links:  DROID RAZR ($0.01) | RAZR MAXX ($99) | Galaxy S3 16GB ($149)

  • snagged one to upgrade my wife’s incredible 2. I used my upgrade though. I can activate this on another line, just like I could through VZW, right?

    • Matt Schultz

      FYI – I used my upgrade and activated the phone on my wife’s line (via verizonwireless.com) and was able to activate it and upgrade 3G unlimited(Incredible 2 POS) to a 4G unlimited plan. No shared data.

    Can I buy this from amazon for one line and transfer lines? I thought i read somewhere bofore that i had to keep it on that line for a certain time.

    • smwandrie93

      have to keep it for 24 hours

  • Not a bad deal. get this for 1cent then buy the MAXX upgrade kit

    • smwandrie93

      maxx kit is 100
      might as well buy the phone itself less work to do

    Making room for HD…

  • Knlegend1

    Don’t do it.

    • paul_cus

      yeah, really.

  • If you upgrade through Amazon can you keep your unlimited plan?

    • Diablo81588

      Doubtful. Its still considered an upgrade through Verizon.

    • Droidzilla

      If you upgrade at all you can’t keep unlimited. Some lucky souls have reported keeping it through an upgrade, but they seem to be those who slipped through the cracks rather than part of an overarching policy.

      • Liderc

        I’ve upgraded twice since this supposed cut-off date and we’ve kept our unlimited. So, not sure if it’s random or what.

  • smwandrie93

    this is f***ing bulls***!!!

    • Everything ok? Need a hug?

      • smwandrie93

        I DO!!!

  • Droidzilla

    Got my RAZR back in November and I’m still happy with it; best Android device I’ve owned to date! Maybe it won’t keep up with the current crop of superphones like the SGSII, but I still have yet to find something I want to do that it won’t.

  • Mikhail

    wait…didn’t I read an article on here a few weeks ago (about the Photon 4G, I believe) where you essentially said that the RAZR was an embarrassment to the DROID name? and now it’s one of the better phones on Verizon to this day?

    • will bartlett

      photon isnt on verizon. you have 3 phones to choose from on verizon that are good, SIII, Gnex, RAZR. so yes…on verizon it is one of the better phones

    • Actually I said nothing close to that. I called the DROID4 and Incredible 4G embarrassments. Here is the link in case you want to re-read it:

        I still disagree with your recent judgement of the D4. Only because of the praise you gave it in its review. Honestly your recent words are unjustly harsh IMO.

        • mustbepbs

          Agreed completely. The reviews of said devices don’t line up with his harsh comment. I mean..he was singing the Incredible 4G’s praises in the overview? And the DROID 4 hardly had an “embarrassing” review.

          • Just skip to the “Verdict” on the D4 review and you’ll know how I feel. It’s a nice phone if you need a keyboard. Otherwise, you should look elsewhere, which is basically what I said.

            The Inc 4G seemed decent when I first unboxed it. Then after two days with it, I couldn’t stand it. I still need to review it, but know how painful it will be to do and haven’t done it yet.

          • kixofmyg0t

            The Atrix HD too!

            But will that be a fair review of the Inc 4G? You already don’t like the phone….so it will transfer into your review. I think you should take price point into consideration, try not to judge it against more expensive phones like the S3.

            …….am I sticking up for a HTC? Strange world….

            You’re a moron.

    • Aj

      You’re probably thinking of the Droid 4.

  • Butters619

    It’s actually been that way for a few weeks, but thanks for the heads up! Always appreciate the deal notifications.

    • I know that it has been a penny for new accounts and new lines, but from what I was told, it’s now a penny for upgrades too.

      • Butters619

        I looked sometime early last week because a friend was looking for a cheap (but good) upgrade for his mother and upgrades were a penny as well. NBD and thanks! still appreciate it.
