I'm a current VZW customer, with a Blackberry that I'll have had for a year come mid-July. Once upon a time Verizon allowed an "annual upgrade" but that seems to have disappeared, much to my dismay. I stopped by the local corporate store today and got this confirmed by one rep. I didn't go into detail with him as far as ways to get a Droid X next month. He wouldn't even acknowledge that the phone existed. (I was in a bit of a hurry so I didn't take the time to point out it's on Verizon's own website now.) I have a $125 ETF fee that I'm willing to pay to unload my existing contract to get the Droid. But I do NOT want to change phone numbers. Any suggestions?
