    Right now, I have the Samsung Fascinate. Lately, it has started having problems where it doesn't read my touches, making it really hard to type on the phone. This only happens occasionally, but it still causes me trouble. In general, I am getting sick of the phone as well. I always get my early upgrade in October, but I don't really want to wait that long.

    I have the insurance that Verizon offers on the phone where I could pay $50 and get a replacement phone. I've also noticed that the Fascinate is out of stock online, which I am guessing means it is out of stock in stores. My question is, if I break or lose my phone to get a replacement, is there any way I can get an early upgrade? Especially since the Fascinate is out of stock? Thanks in advance.

    If something happens to your phone while the insurance is in effect, you can contact Assurian. They will likely have replacement Fascinate's. If not then they will have defined an alternative phone to offer in place of the Fascinate.

    Unless you can find a VZW store manager willing to approve of an "early early upgrade" it's not likely that Verizon will offer you one without some seriously compelling circumstances.

    I figured that the answer would be no, but I was curious anyways. Thanks for the reply.
