Verizon HTC ThunderBolt 4G now just $0.01 with contract at Amazon

The HTC ThunderBolt 4G was Verizon’s first 4G LTE smartphone. Since its release, we’ve seen it discounted by Amazon a number of times. Prices ranged from $179.99 to $129.99 and even $99.99. However, Amazon now offers the ThunderBolt 4G for the best price of all: free.

Well, almost. You will have to pay one penny (so yeah, $0.01) for the device. But that’s (literally) a small price to pay if you’d like to take advantage of great data speeds on your phone.

As you may have expected, you do have to agree to sign a new two-year contract with Verizon in order to get the phone at that price. Be that as it may, you now have the possibility of getting a high-end 4G Android smartphone for roughly the price of an upcoming midranger such as the LG Enlighten.

Yes, the ThunderBolt isn’t the newest (or most powerful) hardware around anymore, but it’s still got plenty of oomph. If you’re interested in picking one up, just go to Amazon now and place your order.

As a side note, Verizon’s other two LTE smartphones are also being offered for a penny. Just follow the links below to take a look:

LG Revolution
Samsung Droid Charge

    here i go complaining again…

    I don’t like it that tech writers always quote the price of a phone for a “new customer” 2 year price. I don’t mind the 2 year commitment part (at least for quoting prices). I have a problem with the “new customer” part. Most people I know have already picked a carrier and are therefore already WITH that carrier. For example, AT&T sucks in my neck of the woods and VZW is good. So i already have service with VZW. I don’t want to see “new customer” prices with VZW phones. I want to see RENEWAL prices. That’s what really matters. What’s the statistics on the # of people who sign a new 2 year contract with a NEW wireless company? It’s probably a lot less than # of people who STAY at their current wireless company. So what do I care about a “new customer” price. I know that some people actually switch carriers because of phones, but let’s be honest, the only that that really happened (at least with large #’s of pple) was with the iPhone on AT&T. Now that the playing field is somewhat more level (vzw and att both have it), most people i know pick a carrier FIRST, then pick a phone.

    bottom line: I ask that you tech writers, as a compromise, discuss phone prices for both new and current (renewing) customers. Thanks
