    I would say add a second line for $10 (total of $240) for 2 years + $200 for the phone = $440, Why not just go ahead and buy it at retail and avoid having to deal with a second line for 2 years and such

    Thanks for the advice guys, I think I have came to my senses and realized that my Storm is fine, especially with the 5.0 OS. I just think I was so impressed by the Droid that it aggravated me that if I would have waited 2 more months I could have had it. Oh well, Maybe when I'm up for my 1 year upgrade something better will be out.... Passion maybe.

    gotcha. I just still need to come up with a dumb phone to put on the account so I don't have to have a data plan.

    see if a friend or family member has one...not sure but i don't think it even has to be a working phone,just a verizon phone.

    To avoid any hassles, i'd simply pay full retail for the device. It sucks to have to, but if you want it bad enough, it's the most hassle-free, honest way to go about it. What I did was I put $250 of the cost onto my phone bill since that isn't due for a month, and ended up paying ~$350 out of pocket. This made the cost a little more bearable. Granted, i'm still paying $600 for a phone when all is said and done, but I will honestly say that after spending that much on my Storm1, for the Droid it is well worth it.

    (And if anyone wonders why I paid full retail for my S1 and still am not eligible for upgrade pricing now, it's because I used my early upgrade pricing back in early June when I was extremely frustrated with my Storm to get a Pearl Flip for free, to hold me over until a 5.0 OS leaked for the Storm)

    I use my mobile device pretty much more than any other gadget I own, so to me it's worth the money to have a device I enjoy.
