    My current phone I bought in January 2008. The 1.5-year contract I signed with it expired nearly a year ago.

    If I found a Best Buy with the Incredible, would they allow me to upgrade for $199.99 on a 2-year contract?

    How easy is it to work with the employees there to set up a new contract? Are they better or worse than Verizon employees?

    Forgot to add- I'm an existing Verizon customer wanting to upgrade. Will they still let me upgrade then?

    I had no problem getting mine from best buy. The only thing is to watch out for their BlackTie service plan sales pitch.

    Try to get them to match Amazon.com's price. Worked for me and I saved $50!

    It's worth a try, but mine wouldn't do it.

    The rep initially told me no. I has her check with the manager and she approved it.

    Best Buy is great and I even made them waive my activation fee and put on a free Zagg protector. They did a good install.

    But DON'T do their Blacktie protection. It's horrendous.

    Either go through your insurance company, asurion, or nothing at all.

    Reports are people wait about 5 weeks to get their phone back and meanwhile you have to deposit 150 dollars to use a crappy old phone so essentially you are putting a $30 data fee down the drain on top.

    It also does NOT cover lost or stolen.

    I got it, the only bad thing is that I have to wait a month for it. Its been two weeks that I have been waiting. And I didn't have to deposit 150 dollars for the loaner phone. And they also took off my Data plan when using their loaner phone and nothing has changed on my Verizon bill.

    As for lost or stolen, for the past phones that I have had that had insurance, its never because it was lost or stolen, its mostly because of damage.

    Your welcome.. you bring in your phone. They ship it out. Then it has to get fixed. Then they have to ship it back.

    Google best buy black tie protection and you'll see the reviews.

    If you have a Blackberry or Iphone the Btp is really good, Blackberry's we exchange right there on the spot and Iphones take about 3 days to get back.... I wish they would speed up all the Android phones though, a month is way to long

    And they also cover water damage, so it's ok to get a little wet as it will still get replaced. I pay $10 a month per phone for that coverage, which can be a lot...
