Okay I have a question...I am eligible for an upgrade today and went through the preorder process and when it came to the payment part I always select the one that lets me add it to my next Verizon bill...it did not have that option is that because the phone is a preorder or does Verizon no longer have the add to bill option when purchasing a new phone? Hope this is clear...thank you in advance.
Sometimes customer service able to offer an early upgrade over the phone. There is no hard-set time frame for an early upgrade. It depends on payment history, length of time as a customer, etc. I have seen early upgrades as much as 2-3 months early. Now then, when you do an early upgrade you are NOT restarting your contract. Additionally, early upgrades are not eligible for pre-order devices. Only currently fully stocked phones (non back order) are eligible. Also iPhones cannot be offered for early upgrade. Hope this answers your question.
Hey Mandy, Thanks for the great info. Couple of quick questions if you don't mind while I wait eagerly (impatiently) for my new phone. Does VZW put any less pre-installed software on this phone than others, given the fact apps can't be moved to the SD card? I think I read that's a JB thing, though. How much branding has Verizon done to the phone and do you consider it unattractive or unobrusive? Got a lot of questions on how useful the new "tricks" are in your opinion, but I don't want to overask my welcome.
Thank you all for the replies. I am up for my upgrade today...unfortunately I cannot preorder since I cannot afford to put it on a credit card and now I am stuck waiting to order until the day of the release I cannot wait get this phone...it looks awesome!
I think my favorite feature is the hover. Basically, I can eat cheetos and read text messages without getting my screen cheesy! Do love that.
