    If I have a phone upgrade that is scheduled in December, does that mean I'm eligible to upgrade? I'm not exactly sure when my contract ends because I'm on a family line.

    If not, then I will just purchase it at full price. This phone is too good to miss! :)

    Not necessarily. I can upgrade now, but my contract doesn't end until 12-2011. You can look online.

    If you have an early upgrade in 2010 does anyone think they'll do that

    I just got off the phone with Verizon customer service. The representative said they have not been trained on the Droid X or the upgrade policy at this time. I assume you are referring to the "primary line" annual upgrade. I'm in the same boat and hoping for the same.

    I just got off the phone with VZW and they confirmed that if your contract is up or you are eligible for an annual early upgrade in 2010 you can get the DX for the upgrade price. My anual upgrade is December 22nd so I just barely made it in.

    I'm wondering if you have to get a 2 year contract. Can I pay more and get a 1 year?

    Quick question that i hope someone can answer. I have a secondary line that is eligible for an upgrade or discounted equipment on September 9 2010. Am I eligible for the early droid X upgrade?

    I think this should help:

    MyDroidWorld - Droid X Fever - VZW Upgrade Eligibility

    If you use the early upgrade on the secondary line, you have to sign a 2 year contract and can not use it as a "buddy upgrade", meaning you will be locked in to the $30 plan for the whole 2 years.

    well when i added the extra lines i actually ended up just giving the main line to my little brother so i use the secondary line that is eligible for the upgrade...therefore i should be ok correct?

    So it looks like the contract end date has to be in 2010? My contract ends in 2011 but I have an annual upgrade available in 2010.

    I highly doubt it. I am sure if they are gonna upgrade you even earlier than your annual, they are gonna lock you in for two years.

    So you can only get the deal if your Contract is up in 2010 or is it if your eligible for a upgrade in 2010? Not even the Verizon reps no the answer, Someone please find this out please !!!

    The annual upgrade sometime in 2010 doesn't make any sense. So you could have upgraded your phone December 30th 2009, now only 6 months later you are eligible for the Droid X at the $199 price? Seems too good to be true.

    I called yesterday and they had no idea anything about it. The guy I talked to said they usually don't know about new phones until the day before it is released unless someone like myself makes him aware.
