Amazon has the LG VX8500 Chocolate phone for free after rebates and instant savings. The phone normally retails, straight up, for $500, but Amazon is offering a $425 instant discount and $75 mail-in-rebate as long as you hand your manhood (or femalehood) over to Verizon through a new contract or service plan.

Going directly through a Verizon retailer, this phone will set you back $100 to $150, even with a contract.
