If you thought that Best Buy selling the Droid 2 Global for $100, or the Droid Pro for $50, was a crazy-mad bargain, it seems that you weren’t the only one.

Engadget are reporting that Best Buy have issued a “stop sale” on the two handsets, and are officially dubbing it a recall. It’s so serious, in fact, that it seems Verizon are no longer activating any phones bought at Best Buy.

But, with no serious issues known on the handsets, why would they do such a thing?

The explanation making its way across the webs today is that, by selling the phones for so little, Best Buy violated an agreement they had with Verizon. Verizon are miffed because selling them for so little has likely eaten into the Verizon-branded store’s profits.

So, it seems that, no matter how big you are, it’s never wise to bite the hand that feeds you.

If you were thinking of picking up one of the phones at this low-low price, it seems that the ship has sailed, my friend.
