    Smile Early upgrade to the Motorola Droid?

    I'm on a family plan with four lines and the primary line can get a phone upgrade on April 29, 2010 after I pay a fee of $30 to end the contract after a year and renew it early. My family has been with verizon for over 11 years. The thing is, I need an early upgrade so I can have a smartphone for business (but I also just really want the Droid, lol) and right now I just have a basic phone without a data plan. Is there any way that I can get an even earlier upgrade? I'll be paying $30 more per month anyway so they'd get more money, but the official store tells me that I have to wait until late April. Do any of you know a way around this? I don't want to pay for a phone off of ebay either (too expensive, plus the warranty is voided since I didn't purchase it from them).

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't go to the official store!!! Go to one of the unofficial stores...they got a lot more freedom there...that's How I got mine...like 45 days after I began a brand new contract with a BB Storm...they helped me get a droid very easily... ;-)

    I've always dealt with a Corp store and they have no problem giving me early upgrades...

    YMMV

    Wrong! I went to an authorized dealer and they said I wasn't eligible until feb...tough luck....the girl didn't even get out of her chair.

    I went to the corporate store near me and told them if they can get me the droid today they have a sale. They did it. That was in Dec.

    Well they wouldn't for me...but we had just started a new 1 year contract and the 30 days had just expired...I think that's the main reason they wouldn't...

    Well is there anything that I should specifically tell them? I've tried with 2 different corporate stores and they told me to wait.
