Verizon Offers Up DROID RAZR M for $50 On Contract Through Holiday Promotion

If you’re thinking about opening a line up on Verizon, the DROID RAZR M can be had for just $50 through Verizon’s new holiday “Share Everything” promotion. Currently, the RAZR M is listed for $99 through Big Red’s site, so if you were going to jump on it, you might want to give it a day or so to reflect the price change. No word on if some other devices will see a price drop, but we’ll keep you posted. 

Check out this semi-sweet TV spot for the new promotion. Although, I can’t say it really makes me jolly about tiered data.

    Upgraded to this from Gnex for 1 cent. This phone is a beast. The build quality is top notch, the colors on the screen are vibrant and pictures look good, the size is very comfortable to hold, and the battery is a huge upgrade from the Gnex. It does have some minor performance hiccups here and there but overall this phone is rock solid.

    Sorry, just to be clear, this deal isn’t applicable if you’re just upgrading, right?

      Can’t speak for VZW, but Amazon is a penny for new lines and upgraders. They are out of stock of the black color right now though. White is in stock still.

      Subsidized prices are typically with a contract agreement, so the pricing goes for new activations and upgrades as well.

    • socrates_johnson

      Okay, thanks a lot. The “If you’re thinking about opening a line up on Verizon” got me.

  • NorCalGuy

    Little off topic but I just upgraded my girlfriends line and both the 32 and 16 GB models of the gnex were free… Just throwing it out there

    • steve0617

      And on Amazon, the GS3 is only $60. Also a fantastic deal.

  • Sobr0801

    Although a good phone, free sounds like the right price.

    To keep unlimited data you must pay full retail for phone. Also once you change from unlimited there is no going back at all

    I tried out the M last week at the VZW store and that phone feels great and small in hand. The metal construction is exemplary. But I don’t like the small screen and don’t even care for Moto’s addons. That metal build and slimness for a Razr HD Maxx would have been a really good phone for me, provided that the bootloader can be unlocked and rooted, etc. etc.

      The DX screen was huge in July 2010. Now the same size is “small”? The Moto add-ons are great on the M. It’s about as close to stock Android as it gets on a non-Nexus phone.

        So that swipe left Quick Setting is close to stock? Or settings themselves with the nice colored icons is close to stock? I guess just the soft keys makes people say that. But it’s also why the screen looks smaller than the DX.

        • WAldenIV

          That settings screen is great. You’re the first person I’ve heard that doesn’t like it. The icons are closer to stock on JB than ICS. Would you prefer the GSIII with its nature theme puked over everything?

          • LionStone

            I never said that I didn’t like it, my point was clear. Actually I welcome it, I’m all for swipe gestures…I’m running Nova on the DNA and I set the swipe Up to go to Settings…love it. Sammie’s nature theme? Blech! No way no thanks!

    A bit off topic but thinking about testing out the Droid Razr Maxx HD And had two questions…

    If I’m on an unlimited data plan I will have to switch over when upgrading correct? If I return the phone within a week or however long they give you will I have any issues going back to my unlimited data plan?

    Any idea if there is any chance of the development community picking up at all on the Razr HD? That’s what’s holding me back right now considering all the updates I’m getting on the nexus.

      Once you Upgrade and lose Unlimited Data it will be next to impossible to get it back.

      • guest

        aw crap, i just used my upgrade to try out a phone and then return it. looks like ill lose my unlimited..damn

      • http://twitter.com/DSullivan721 Dennis

        Blah I doubt I’ll take the risk then since I’m pretty sure I’ll end up going back to my nexus anyway :-/

    • Jordan Epps

      I’m not 100% sure but I believe that once you lose that unlimited, it’s gone. You’ll get your upgrade back but will still be on the tiered plan. Again, not 100% sure.

    • Apostrafee

      Yes you can get your unlimited data back if the device is returned….however you will spend hours and hours on the phone with customer service fighting….NOT worth it

        See I’m going through Best Buy (they will price match AmazonWireless) which makes me wonder if it’ll make things easier or if they’ll tell me one thing and come back in a week later and get a different story.

        • laffingrass

          Best Buy is known for screwing up Verizon accounts. I’m not sure if I would trust them.

    • ssjnimma

      I believe you do lose it…

      whats strange is that on my primary line its unlimited and I switched devices (bought from 3rd party) and retained my Unlimited plan. Did the same thing for my 2nd line which had the 4GB plan when they offered the double the 2GB plan… and lost the 4GB plan and it went to 2GB. So I called verizon up pretty pissed about it and they said it should not have downgraded to a 2GB plan so they had to put in a “request” to change it back that could take up to 15 days… at which they back date any all all usage to reflect the date it switched…

      Very odd not sure if anyone else has had that issue?

      • C-Law

        Yeah happened when I upgraded my mother. She lost the double data promo and dropped to 2gb. I didn’t think I could fight it though. It’s been months now so there’s probably nothing I can do

        • ssjnimma

          I will have to make sure to keep up with it… the rep did say it should go back so it will be interesting to see as we never “upgraded” through verizon, we just simply activated a different phone under that line.
