This deal has ended.
Amazon now has the LG VX8500 "Chocolate" Phone for Verizon for only $74.99 after a $50 rebate through 9/10 (you'll see the rebate on the 2nd page). This is compared to Verizon.com's $149.99. The much-hyped Chocolate has 512mb of memory for MP3 files (and an optional 2gb memory card) and has a 1.3 megapixel digital camera. Shipping is free and there is no sales tax (there is sales tax at Verizon.com or at a Verizon store).
