, I checked Newegg /Simplexity last Sunday (01/15) and got my Droid Bionic from there for $49.99 out-the-door!
My secondary line on a Family Share plan was out of contract and eligible for upgrade. It was $699.99, less $650 instant discount, free next-day-shipping, so a total due of $49.99 with a 2-year contract extension. NO sales tax!
My only problem is I ordered the last day of the double-data promo (4 GB for the price of 2 GB) so I am battling Verizon to get them to honor it since the phone didn't arrive and get activated until a few days later. I called Newegg/Simplexity and they tell me it will get taken care of but will take a few days. So I wait and see for now...
