$99 Storm at Amazon!

If you've been on the fence over buying a BlackBerry Storm, cutting the cost in half to $99.99 might just be key that makes you bust out your wallet. If you're looking for two phones, there's Verizon's recently launched Buy One Get One deal, and now Amazon over the weekend slashed the price of the Storm 9530 in half. Sweet! Big THANKS to everyone who sent this in!

I'm almost tempted ....

can i switch over a current BB verizon user plan to still receive the discount? It prompts me to sign up for a new plan which I don't need.

Bet you can't, especially from a reseller.

Can someone please explain to me how this works? I assume to get this discount, you have to sign up for a new 2-year contract, but is buy-one-get-one-free deal still apply? For example, could my friend (who has a 2-year upgrade available), buy this on amazon and then get 2 storms shipped to him for $99? (Guess who would be getting the other one :D :D)

You can't upgrade your current account with it..you also can't merge this account over to your current account if you do decide to go through the amazon promotion.

Here are some other fun little fine print details (note the disconnection fee is in addition to vzw's $175 ETF)

You miss one month's payment being on time and you're hit with a $250 fee.

From Amazon.com:
250 Instant Discount Terms & Conditions
The purchase price of your device reflects an instant discount of $250 that has been provided to you by Amazon.com based on your agreement to (a) activate a new, non-substitute line of service in connection with this device, and (b) maintain this service with the selected rate plan in good standing for a minimum of 181 consecutive days.

By accepting this equipment discount, you agree that for a period of 181 days after your new equipment is activated, you will not:

·disconnect this line of service

·change your service plan to one with a lower monthly rate (e.g., from $59.99 to $29.99)

·cancel required plan options such as BlackBerry or PDA/Smartphone data features

·transfer this device to another line of service

·fail to pay your balance due each month

If you do any of the above you will be subject to additional charges by Amazon.com of up to $250, plus applicable taxes.

I was so thrilled to see a storm for so CHEAP too bad you have to get a new plan for it... i already have a service plan... oh well i guess somethings are too good to be true :(

I just called Amazon.com inquiring whether or not these were new phones and if I could purchase insurance on the phone. The salesperson told me this offer is only available for NEW Verizon customers. If you are already a Verizon customer, then you do not qualify for this offer. Sorry....

is the Storm some Bast@rd stepchild from RIM? First the BOGOF deal then the $99 from Amazon? Are they trying to get rid of all the Storm stock in anticipation of better phones? Seems the Storm has been nothing but a big flop...and now RIM is trying to offload their surplus...

I could be wrong though...
