    So today is my wife's birthday and she really wants an Eris but her line isn't due for an upgrade until August. Is there any kind of discount or method I can use to not have to pay the full retail price? I mean I understand they don't make much on the secondary line but hell I've been with Verizon for at least 2 years now and I bought an Eris for myself at 250 bucks. I would hope by now they would have made their money back on my phone.

    Call verizon and explain the situation. They might be willing to move up her upgrade date. Also, tell them that you bought your eris right before they started the 'buy-one-get-one' campaign and see if that helps.

    Personally, since your on Verizon, you should get her the HTC Incredible instead of the HTC Eris since Verizon has listed the Eris as end of life soon.

    Add another line, order the eris, then activate it on her current number

    The Eris is a GREAT phone, don't listen to those who would push you the get the "latest and greatest". Unless she is a geek of all geeks or a super-smartphone-user, the Eris will be more than enough.

    Go ahead and call Verizon, I bet you they would be happy to accmodate you... they let me upgrade 5 months early.

    If your wife does not have a smartphone yet, you may be able to just go to a corporate store/premium retailer and have them do an upgrade, since they will be getting an extra $30/month.

    I agree that an Incredible may be too much depending on her needs. Also Verizon will probably be more accommodating with a less expensive phone that they are looking to sell out of.

    I would totally go incredible. Women get frustrated with dumb things like laggy dialer....which the eris has unless you install a app and other things.
