    Hi I just wanted to see if anyone else had heard this before.

    I ordered my phone from amazon and paid 199.00 no tax and when I called to activate it with Verizon, the lady told me that it wouldn't change my upgrade date.

    I looked today on my account and the phone that was eligible for an upgrade, still says its eligible.

    How could this be possible? What a deal, It was cheaper then ordering it from Verizon, I got it about a month faster because I ordered it last friday and received it on Monday, and it doesn't change my upgrade date.

    It just sounds too good to be true.

    Yeah dude thats pretty awesome. I ended up uprading almost a year early but I really don't think verizon is dead set on the 2 year policy if you are getting smart phones.

    I signed up for a 1-year contract with my Incredible for only $30 more than a 2-year, meaning I'll be "upgrade eligible" in 12 months, as opposed to 24. Since it costs ~$200 to upgrade even at the discounted price, it's not something I plan to do more than once a year (with perhaps some exception), so I figured that $30 was a solid investment. Next year I want a forward facing camera, and probably a 4.3" screen too.

    I've been able to upgrade after 1 year but I waited to get my NE2 which I was able to get on launch day for the Inc. Anyway if I wanted to upgrade after 1 year on a 2 year contract I would get the 2 year price and pay $20 for the early upgrade.

    The biggest complaint seems to be the shear size of the new phones including the Moto X. I think the Incredible has the perfect form factor. Works for me anyway. :)

    Mine did the same thing. It still shows I'm eliable for an update.

    My worry is that Amazon was unable to properly sync with Verizon and that eventually they will charge me the full retail price.

    I'm going to contact Verizon about it when I get around to it.

    Agreed... If your upgrade date didn't change and your contract didn't renew then Amazon won't be getting their commission for the sale. Don't be surprised when Amazon charges you extra fees on your credit card and then you'll need to call around to get it straightened out.

    If you currently have a smart phone and you pay for the data plan.. you are eligible for upgrade after 1 year.. thats how I got my Droid Inc. This information is available on VZW website.

    I haven't even been a Verizon Customer for a year. Switched to Verizon in AUG of 09, Called Verizon in late May inquiring about prices for a refurbished Palm Pre Plus for the fiance because she just wasnt a fan of her Blackberry. The salesperson I spoke to offered an early upgrade at the one year price, and on a whim I asked if she could do the same with me for the Incredible and she did. But we are both still eligible on our original upgrade dates according to their website, which is fine by me.

    Verizon is very good about custom support IMO , yes I've talked to the shitty CSR but most the time they will take care of you if you ask (within reason of course)

    Had a friend that used her upgrade for a Chocolate Touch and hates it but didn't decided she hated it for almost 3 months after getting it. And went on a long bitching fit about how bad Verizon is because when she went in all they offered her was another Chocolate Touch and wouldn't give her a new phone. So she cancelled her service paid the early termination and now is with Cricket lol
