My contract is up in Feb (although the guy on the phone last night said I was eligible for an upgrade in DEC) I was told that I would probably be eligible for an early upgrade but I had to go in stores to get it done. It would cost me $50, but I would HAVE to buy a phone through a sprint store. I couldn't use wirefly, amazon, best buy, etc I want the Note 2, but do I really have to to go buy in stores? I can't call Sprint over the phone and just buy out the contract? Maybe I just got a confused rep?
