    I guess Verizon is liquidating their stock of Pre2's and getting ready for the Pre3. It's good time to buy a Pre2, besides it's a great phone with the perfect form factor.

    This is the reason I got one the other day. I saw that price and couldn't resist.

    I got mine, from Verizonwireless.com, as an upgrade (not even a full My-2 discount) for $5.34 after taxes, delivered. That's five dollars and thirty four cents, to avoid any thought of typos.

    I assumed, from the comment above, that this was a sale or push to clear inventory ahead of the Pre 3 release (similar to the push before they EOL'd teh Pre+ and were supposed to pick up the Pre 2).

    It may not be available to everyone, though. I had my Pre+ 1 year this past March, so I'm not at the early 20 month window.

    No - I See it too. I am this close to upgrading my other plus. I already got one of these on my other line, and it IS a better phone in many ways.

    but with 51 days 'til the pre 3 lands, should I wait? IDK!

    BTW - I searched for this after seeing the price on VZW but didn't see it. It was only when I went to the pre 2 forum that I found it. search could be better, no?

    Also which pre 2 forum did you find it in, Precentral or somewhere else? Can you provide a link? Please

    thanks

    Could you provide a link to where you found this in the forums? I have not been able to locate it over there.

    My advice on this is to think twice about getting the VZW Pre 2. Yes, it truly is a great phone, but it is very obvious that VZW could care less about webOS devices. I doubt that we will ever see an update past 2.0.1. Yes, you will only spend $5 on the phone, but $5 of support from VZW is all you are going to get.

    2.1 has to be coming soon from VZW, I'm waiting!

    When I sign in to my account, it shows the Pre 2 at $24.99, the same thing happened when it launched in February, the website seems to reflect corporate discounts.

    Sorry, but the Pre 2 is a very nice phone, and a significant upgrade over my Pre+. Even during the short period that it could run at 1GHz (it would reboot after a couple of hours), my Pre+ was a dog compared to my Pre 2. This phone feels more solid than my Pre+ did when it was new. For anyone looking for a new webOS phone, but unwilling to part with what will likely be around $150-200 for the Pre 3, this is a steal. If VZW doesn't push the 2.1 update out, or, better yet, jump right to 2.2, then I'll just meta-doctor.

    This forum!!! Gawd. also I already have one pre2 so don't tell me it's not worth it. I know better.

    I only know what the pre3 countdown app says. It's in the preware feeds.

    I see it at $4.99. Sorry you guys don't.

    I never said it wasn't a great phone. Just understand that to Verizon you'll always be a second-class customer if you have a webOS phone. I love my Pre 2, but I hate the fact that I will never see an update within 6 months of its release.

    The Pre 2 is a nice little phone, but I would not pay $49.99 for what has become an non-supported device on VZW.
