    Verizon doesn't publicize it, but if you haven't hit month 20 yet you may still be able to get subsidized pricing. The annual updgrade program is going away, but many of us get one more shot to use it. Here are the requiremnts:
    • Upgraded line must be the primary line on your plan
    • Voice package of your plan must be 49.99 or greater per month
    • The last updgrade on your primary line must be prior to Jan 16, 2011.
    • Last upgrade should have been at least 12 months ago.
    Verizon doesn't publicize this benefit and it won't show up online or in your MyVerizon app, but most retail stores will honor it and if you have trouble there call customer service and they can note your account for the subsidized price or they can order the phone for you.


    I emailed Verizon CS and had 2 reps call me and confirm I am elligible for a subsidized upgrade (Last upgraded Nov 2010).

    Unfortunately this program goes away with all upgrades after Jan 16, 2011.

    Mine actually showed up online once I made my 12th month payment. Showed me as being eligible for an upgrade (then displayed the NE2 date for about 8 months later). So, this benefit may show up online for at least some as it certainly did for me.

    It took 24 hours but they called me instead of emailing. Was a 910 area code.

    One other thing to remember.... only Verizon honors the annual upgrade. You can't use it at other retailers (Amazon, BB, etc....). If you use their sites to check for upgrade eligibility, it will show that you aren't eligible for an upgrade until the 20 month time period (NE2, if you still have it). Verizon's site should show pricing for you at the 2-yr contract price.

    Mine just showed up online!! Schhhweeeeet! Can't wait till the website allows me to order. All I have to say is Verizon is crazy. By not releasing this phone when you know they have a warehouse full, they are keeping themselves from getting my money.

    They should put this phone online only for a month if they want to push bloat phones in their stores. Keep us happy while making money on bloat.
