    Interesting points....I'm guessing VZW negotiates prices with mfrs on various issues, such as guaranteeing a minimum number of sales and as you point out, RIM also cares about the length of contract (although I doubt individuals matter - RIM would have server contracts with the company).

    I'm not sure how the whole 3G to LTE conversion is working, but I have a suspicion that some of the motivation here is VZW pulling LTE customers forward and locking them into 3G for another year or two, which makes sense on a number of fronts. Plus, the rumored Q4/Q1 beasts coming are probably going to kill sales of existing handsets, so they could be trying to artificially stimulate demand a bit to hit promised sales targets.

    My gut feeling is those of us hoping to get a shot at an early upgrade to LTE are going to be disappointed. By the way, leaving 3G unlimited and going tiered on LTE is another way to try to balance demand on the two networks.

    It all makes sense now. My phone broke 2 days ago, contacted VZW to see if I could magically upgrade 2 months early (Sept 24th upgrade date), and they said "yes, I'm special". Or something like that

    That was yesterday though, so start asking and checking snail mail confirmations!

    I didn't get anything in the mail, but I did receive a text message that informed me I could upgrade early with the lowest possible price. So I called. Getting my Droid X for $99.00. Good deal in my opinion. The lowest price I have seen has been $179.00. I also got them to let me upgrade my wife early to the DX as well for $199. Thought I was special, but guess not. At least the VZW rep was nice!!

    I was going to go into the store after work. Maybe I'll just try calling and see if I can get it that cheap too!

    I think the ease in which you get a very early upgrade depends on which office your call gets routed to. My BB was due for upgrade in July 2011, and I was able to get an upgrade to a DROID on the first shot. A few weeks later I wanted to upgrade my son's non-smart phone to a DX. His upgrade was due for August 2011. I spoke to a rep in Indiana, whose supervisor told the rep it was too early, so no. I called back and got connected to a Chicago office; same result. I asked the rep how calls to Verizon get routed; he told me that calls to go random offices during busy times. I told him that I would simply keep calling back (and getting different offices) until I got one that would agree to let me upgrade. He laughed and said that is a strategy to try. Third time was a charm; DX should be on the way soon.

    So, what I found is that the supervisors have huge lattitude to allow early upgrades, so call during a busy time, and keep trying until you find one that let's you do what you want.

    i've never had issues with *611 and complaining about phones and getting upgrades did it for my wife, my mom, my bro and myself when all of us had over a year left on our contracts, now the past 3 days i been trying to call and noone wants to help me no matter what i say, getting kind of frustrating, the guy today told me they dont have the authority to do it however during my streak of having it happen they all had no problem doing it, funny how some people on here are finding it easy now i found it easy months ago, and now its hard as hell. hopefully next call i make i get a local office

    It also had my wifes phone, that isnt eligible until Feb of 2011, as able to upgrade.

    I Might have to consider getting the X now.... I love the sbility to customize of my droid tho. Its a tough decision.
    I just don't get this. I've been a loyal customer of VZW for 11 years, and I've had my Droid since November, and our lines aren't eligible.
