    Ok you guys. My official upgrade date is on Nov. 4, 2012. On Friday my mom called Verizin to see if we could upgrade because some of our phones weren't working at all and they granted us updates but only if we order over the phone. So my mother and I want to order our phones from Radioshack. (I'm getting the Razr HDfor $150.) But we're not sure if we can just order the phones from Radioshack now and then just call Verizon to activate them. Also, the Verizon rep said the earliest we order from an actual Verizon store is on the 29th, a week before the official upgrade date. So if we can't order the phones now, do you think it's possible to order the phones from Radioshack on the 29th? or do we have to wait to the official date? b/c my dad and sister just got their smartphones (b/c they bought theirs over the phone) and now im so anxious to get my phone!

    So if anyone has any experience in ordering a phone from Radioshack or any second-hand stores.. plz post them or even iif you have any type of information on this process.. plz comment!!
    thx!

    I got my Bionic from Radio Shak for $100 when they were still $300 at VZW. The transaction went smooth. I can't answer your other upgrade issues.
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    You have to wait for your actual upgrade date to get it from Radioshack. They can't override it for you. And Verizon will usually only allow you to upgrade early if you upgrade from them.

    This is partially true. With Verizon you are able to actually upgrade 7 days before your listed eligibility date.

    Needadroid listen to jackiescivic she is in the business and is quite knowledgeable on the topic. From my personal experience Verizon on the phone will let you upgrade before anybody else, they can override their own rules somewhat. Jackie is queen of this topic.
