    How do yall bypass the 2 yr contract?

    I'd really like to get the nexus s if it becomes available on Verizon, but I still have over a year left on my current contract. Anything I can do?

    They won't tell you at Verizon, but if your base plan (no counting additional text plan or data) is $49.99 or higher, you're eligible for an upgrade every 12 months...

    others just pay full retail... but we're not all that fortunate to be able to afford that.

    Does this also work for family plans?

    What about trading or selling? How difficult is it getting all of your information switched around?

    Shouldnt be hard, I dont know about you, but Im a year out still and theyre constantly badgering me to upgrade early. Seems everytime a new phone comes out I get something in the mail. Only reason I have was becasue there wasnt anything I wanted and I didnt have the money. Im waiting for an LTE phone.

    Did you get anything when the X or the Fascinate dropped?

    If that doesnt work you could pay full retail, if you want it bad enough, and sell your old phone for what you can get out of it.

    Hmm, I've never heard of upgrading early. How does that work?

    I got the Inc when it was released. I really wanted the Nexus One, but we all know how that story ends lol.

    It works, i just done it, i'm on a family plan and like stated above the primary line was available for the ANNUAL 12 month upgrade.. Of course i called Verizon 3 times until i got a hold of a rep that would push it through..

    But i had to, i got my upgrade 1 month earlier than my annual so basically i got my upgrade in 11 months instead of 12, then i did a ESN swap and "POOF" i'm a happy droid x owner..

    I buy used off CL. I don't spend more than 300. About what u spend after tax, give or take.

    Its easy to spot fakes.

    Saves my upgrade for a real worthwhile unit, like the D1 last year.
