Any Verizon 4G phone marked down $100, but there’s a catch…

This may be some excellent news for those of you looking to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (or any other Verizon 4G phone for that matter). Verizon has been contacting some of its customers with a $100 instant rebate to any of their 4G phones if their customer was previously the owner of a 3G-only smartphone. Though they've been contacting select customers - all Verizon subscribers that fall into this situation are eligible.

The source comes directly from Verizon via Reddit user Prevo. They state that "The discount will apply if you are upgrading to a 4G phone and currently do not have one". Now those of you interested in signing up for a new line of service with Verizon may not fall into this category; however, carriers are known for sweetening the deal to lure you into a new 2 year contract. So if you're like me, on Thursday when you roll into your local Verizon retailer, you'll mention this deal and see if they will honor it for new customers as well.

This will put the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola DROID RAZR both at $199.99 - a great deal indeed. And seeing as how the DROID Bionic was already reduced, this promotion will let you nab one for only $99.99. I'm not sure how long this deal will last, but I certainly presume throughout the holiday season. Many OG DROID users are finally out of a contract, and Verizon is surely eager to keep them on their network.

    Just got off phone with Verizon, deal is only for chicago area where new 4g network went online. Sorry folks not for everyone. They did give me the new every two discount 5months early and waived the $20 early upgrade fee. :) guess $70 is better than nothing, and only cost me 15 minutes of my time.

    I called Verizon customer service today, & she told me the deal was only if you went from a 3G NON smart phone to a 4G smart phone. It appears you do not qualify going from a 3G smart phone to a 4G smart phone. Maybe she was wrong?
