Like most people waiting months to get a Droid Bionic, I had one in my hands at a Verizon kiosk at Costco A couple hours ago. Paid for but not processed. During processing, their computer showed I was not eligible. I've been on the unlimited data plan for 22 months and I might add that the My verizon moble app states I am eligible for an upgrade. Upon calling Verizon, their representative told me that "EARLY upgrades were only available at Verizon Stores and she would be happy to send me one or I could go to a Verizon Store. Of course, she would not give me an equivalent Costco deal. (280$ for the phone and 160$ of free accessories) Their strategy is obvious, however, a few dollars they would make on the phone are definitely off set by the 115.00 I pay them every month. (2760.00$ over 2 years) Does everyone realize that when you trade in your phone to them for a gift card. You are stuck with a data plan and no phone if your new phone is returned for any reason? Your call Verizon!!
