    I am 3 months away from an upgrade. If I buy through Amazon, will I get the 199$ price, and then be billed the 250$ later (449$ total)? Or will they immediately reject my upgrade and charge me the full 599$ ?

    I really want this phone, but $600 is a lot of money for a phone I will probably replace in less than a year for the next version.

    Has anyone tried this?


  2. I think you'll have to pay the full retail price.

    I also agree you will have to pay full price.

    Full price on verizons site is only 529

    it wont work. amazon verifies with carrier, before giving u the cellphone. even if the order succeeds they will later increase to full or allow u to cancel. if you are only 3 months away, u can probably convince a verizon rep to give it to u. forget the amazon price though.
  5. If you want, you can try calling VZW directly, and asking if they can move your upgrade up a bit. I know that several members on here had that done, however it seems a bit arbitrary on how close you have to be to the upgrade date, and how long you've been a member (probably will have a better chance if you've been with VZW for quite a while)
