Several BlackBerry Storm owners on Howardforums are reporting that they’ve recently received a text message from Verizon offering a free BlackBerry of their choosing provided that they open another line of service on their account. This promotion is apparently some type of subset of the “buy one get one free” offer that Verizon has been running. Under this new promotion even users who bought their BlackBerry Storm on launch day are receiving the offers:
VZW Free Msg. As a loyal VZW customer & BlackBerry Storm owner, you’re eligible for another BlackBerry of ur choice FREE when you add a line to your account w/2 year agreement on an email plan! To take advantage of this limited offer, call 800.483.3266 today! Offer ends 3/31/09. Valid for this MTN only. 2 opt out reply X.
The added BlackBerry isn’t exactly free because you’re forced into a $30/month data plan and additional fees for voice on either a standalone or family plan. Still, this may be worth looking into if you’re enjoying the Storm and want to spread the BlackBerry love within your family.
