Yep, I received a flyer in the mail yesterday from Verizon. I almost missed it, but on the back cover of the flyer it listed the 4 phone numbers of our family plan and what each number was eligible for. ALL 4 were eligible for early upgrade NOW, even though two of us (my Moto Droid and my daughter's Droid Eris) just purchased our phones in early November when they were first released. Offer expires August 31. I'm REAL tempted, but I'll wait for the froyo OTA update first - which hopefully will be at least a week or two before the end of August. Then I'll make my decision on whether to upgrade to an Incredible or an X - or keep the Droid...

For those that got the flyer in the mail or were allowed to upgrade early, what did your online VZW account say? Did it say you were still about 11mos or so away from your upgrade? The reason I ask is because my wife and I bought Droids in November much like others here and we would like to upgrade to X's but no way in heck am I paying the $549 price for upgrading. Our account says we're not eligible for an upgrade yet but I'm curious what others had experienced. If yours said the same thing and you were still allowed to upgrade via phone calls to customer service then I'll start the phone process.
Wife and I did our NE2 upgrades on the day the Droid 1 came out last November. I'm the primary line with a droid; she's secondary with a regular phone. With the current promo they let me upgrade my line to a Droid X. My new 2 year contract will end 2 years from the date I activate my new phone. As is always the case with NE2, you can upgrade at the 20th month of your contract and get the NE2 discount; you don't have to wait until the 24th month. Incidentally, individual plans and the primary line of a family plan can upgrade annually, but without any additional NE2 discount and you may have to pay a fee ($20 or $30) to do the early upgrade. So, when my X arrives I'll give my current droid to my wife. Since we weren't able to upgrade her line early the original contract dates still apply: she'll be eligible to upgrade in the 20th month...next July. When that time comes I'll most likely use her upgrade to get a newer Android phone for myself and give her my X. She's okay wth my hand-me-down phones, because I'm the techie and she has the benefit of having me help her learn her "new" phone since it was previously mine.
