We expect Verizon users will be stuck with the HTC Trophy for at least the next 6 months, but this does not mean Microsoft cant help push the now venerable device.
The Microsoft store is now offering the Windows Phone 7 handset for free with free shipped both to the buyer and back if they are not satisfied, and with a $35 Visa Gift card as cash back.
This does of course come in exchange for signing up for a $59.99 contract, but then nothing is truly free these days.
Having said that, the HTC Trophy is still a great device â€“ I use mine every day and it has helped me so far resist any urge to upgrade to a newer handset. On Verizonâ€™s store the handset still has a 4 1/2 star rating from close to 1000 reviews, just behind the iPhone.

Thanks Jeremy for the tip.
