Amazon Wireless drops all Verizon phones to a penny, including the Droid Bionic |

Android and Me

Amazon Wireless has a pretty fantastic deal going for new Verizon customers right now. You can get any handset you want on Big Red for just a penny with a new 2-year contract, including free 2-day shipping.

To be clear, when they say everything, they mean everything. The , , , , , etc….

Obviously the

is the real steal here, as it launched just a month ago for a considerably less palatable $299 with contract. Anthony gave the Bionic an 8.5/10  with the main complaint resting on battery life.

Now if you’re concerned about having the absolute latest and greatest handset and aren’t particularly hurting for cash at the moment, then you should exercise patience. You know full well there are some amazing new phones from ,

and, of course,  on deck to launch in the next month.

With that said, there are some great phones available in Verizon’s lineup right now. And you can’t argue with the price.


Good deal if your a new customer. Bad deal if u just bought one a few days ago from Verizon.


Heres my solution. Add another line. take the bionic and put on your line. yes you might have to pay 10 dollars a month for an extra line but over 2 years its only 240$ give or take. Thats not to bad for not having to waste your upgrade and getting a 700$ phone

This just kills me …. I just paid $300 … I feel like such a fool.

Anyone confirm if you can add a line to an existing family plan, cancel one of the current lines (its contract expired a few months ago), and then use the number from the old one on this new line, all while getting a phone for $0.01?

It’s still on a two year contract. Who buys phones with a contract? Ah, right, your in the US. Never mind then…

I just tried adding the bionic to my cart and Amazon is charging full retail price. The price shows as a $0.01 for the other phones.


Yeah, the Bionic is not listed as one of the phones for a penny. I assume this is the way it is since the Bionic is the only phone on Verizion with a dual core processor and 4G LTE capabilities. What a shame, really the only phone on Verizion that’s worth getting at the moment. I was considering getting it as soon as I heard this, but it looks like that’s not going to happen. Let the waiting for the Nexus Prime continue!

Please correct me if I am wrong but from reading all the posts I gather that you must be a brand new Verizon customer to get the penny deal.

I am on a family plan where both phones are elig for an upgrade.

I tried to upgrade via Amazon and received an error code.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I am in good standing and due to renew so I wonder why I can’t get the upgrade from Amazon. Laurie

So … I am not under a contract with VZW .. month to month but I don’t qualify for the upgrade?

Will the penny price for the Droid Bionic work for upgrade customers?

I have a family account with Verizon Wireless and my contract is expired.

I’m eligible for a new phone at upgrade price.
