That rumor yesterday about Verizon dumping rebates on smartphones priced $150 or greater? Yep, it's looking more legit than ever now that BGR's scored Big Red's latest rebate form -- and nearly all of the big-ticket smartphones are now gone. Also notable: the Droid 2 R2-D2, currently priced at $199.99, is on there with a $50 rebate, which suggests the phone could see a price drop to $149.99 on or around Monday. At the end of the day, you'll be paying the same for most of these phones -- but it'll be nice to pay a little less upfront.
