Great deal: Amazon offers all Verizon phones for 1 penny to new subscribers


If you’re a free agent and considering Verizon as your next carrier, AmazonWireless has a great deal going right now. With the exception of the iPhone, all Verizon phones are on sale for a penny ($0.01) with a two-year contract. Yesterday, we published a new Best Verizon Phones article with recommendations like the Droid Bionic, Samsung Droid Charge, and HTC Trophy. They’re all here, as are some other decent devices like the Xperia Play (if you want a gaming pad) and the HTC Rhyme.

Unfortunately, if you’re not a new subscriber, you don’t get the full discount on most phones, but we’ve noticed that even renewing subscribers seem to get a $50-$100 discount from the prices offered at We haven’t purchased a phone through Amazon either, so we also can’t verify that the process isn’t a nightmare, but the online retailer usually does a pretty good job of simplifying purchases. 

The sale runs through 11:59pm PDT on Oct. 17 2011. 

Check it out and let us know how your purchase goes.
