Best Buy getting locked out of Droid Pro and Droid 2 Global for selling them too cheaply?

Chris Ziegler

Drama! We're hearing from many, many tipsters right now that Best Buy has issued a stop-sale on two of Verizon's latest (and presumably more popular) models. Officially it's a "recall" of some sort, but the word on the street is that the carrier's preventing activations from Droid 2 Globals and Droid Pros sold at Best Buy locations. Why? Seems Best Buy may have committed the most vile of sins by selling the dynamic duo for too little -- $100 and $50 on contract, respectively, violating an agreement the company had in place with Verizon and quite likely cutting into corporate-owned Verizon stores' numbers. Phones are being pulled from Best Buy shelves as we speak... so yeah, if you want one of these two right now, look elsewhere for the moment.
