Default Incredible/Verizon Owners

Well, I am thinking about moving on from the Incredible, and it has been just that. What I am wondering is this, I can "Upgrade at a discounted price" right now. If I waited until my actual upgrade date how much more of a "discount" will I get?? Is it worth it too wait or will the prices only lower by like $20-30?

I believe you would get $30 off the contract price.

So, I can get a new phone right now for $199, but if I wait until actual upgrade date it will only go down to $169?

No, you can't upgrade until 20months. When your eligible and do upgrade the phone is $199 minus the additional $30 NE2 discount, if your eligible for the NE2 that is. Otherwise the upgrade is $199

You can't upgrade before your eligible (20 months) You can't upgrade say at 18 months and get the new phone for $199.

That is what he is saying in quotes.. When my 20 months was up... On the web it said "Available for a Discount"... That was the $30 discount for the NE2.. $30.. So yes, if that is what you are saying by upgrade at a discount then yes, it will only cost you $169

He still has the online early upgrade option. Same as NE2, everyone on those old terms still has one last use. Before I left Verizon, I got my online upgrade available at 12 months and was 8 months away from my NE2.

Like others have said, the $30 discount becomes available at 20 months, the subsidized price (usually $199 or now $299) becomes available at 12 months.
