    upgrading phones???

    is it possible to upgrade your phone without a new two year activation. What I mean is i got a droid in November. Is their anyway to get the droidX or Droid 2 for only 200$ (or however much they cost on release). I'm fine with being contracted into a new 2 years but i wouldn't mind upgrading to a new phone, but there no way im paying 600$. Thats outrageous. Any help would be nice.

    In a word, no.

    You can upgrade at the 20 month mark on a 2 year contract.

    You can also do an annual upgrade, but you're still a ways off from that.

    You can upgrade whenever you want. However, you're not going to get a subsidized phone without a contract extension (whenever you're eligible for it).

    $600 isn't outrageous. That's what they cost. Again, $200 or whatever they're sold for with new activation or contract extension is the subsidized price. The US is fairly unusual in that subsidies are used in this way. Full price is the norm, not the exception -- no matter how entitled American consumers feel they are to getting subsidies.

    How do you do an annual upgrade again? I'm about to get my own contract at the end of the year (separate from my families plan) and I'd love to do that...i'd even pay more for my plan if I could.

    With Verizon the primary line gets an annual upgrade, the secondary lines get to upgrade every 2 years. So, if you want to be able to upgrade every year, then you either have to use your primarys upgrades or go on your own plan. If you don't mind resigning a 2 year contract then just upgrade your phone. You also can upgrade and then if you wanted, take Assumption of Liability and take your number to your own plan..

    Oh ok that's perfect. I'm about to go on my own plan with me and my fiance, so she will get one every 2 years and I will get one every year.

    Sounds great!

    I was under the assumption that you could upgrade whenever you wanted. Even if you were in a New Every 2......they would just extend the contract out. Am I wrong? Because I believe I did this before with Verizon and it wasn't an issue.
