Couple of things I wanted to point out. First, I'm not eligible to upgrade until this Monday, 9/26 according to VZW's site, but Amazon Wireless said I'm eligible now. Odd. I entered in my acct info and everything and it said "success, eligible for upgrade" or something like that. Is that common?
I can confirm that it is $79 for an upgrade on family plan.
Has anyone had success with the Radio Shack promotion? They are claiming $100 off any smartphone, even when upgrading. I find it hard to believe because Radio Shack is the devil but here is the link: The ShackŪ Blog | The Official Radio Shack Blog verizon
