It also depends on who you talk to. When I got the OG Droid on release day nearly 4 years ago, I asked the store manager whether I could get the upgrade date on one of my other lines moved up by 2 months so that I could also get the Droid. He said no. I then called customer service and was told no as well. I then contacted customer service via the Verizon website contact page and the next day I got an email telling me that they moved my upgrade date up. What also probably helped was that the line I wanted to move up the upgrade on was a feature phone at the time and would have upgraded to a smartphone. I have heard that they are more inclined to move it up if you're switching from a feature phone to a smartphone. I have also heard that they are less inclined to move it up if you want to upgrade to an iPhone.
Please keep in mind that Verizon's early upgrade policy has really changed the most in the last 6 months. Specifically, the retail channel can NEVER offer an early upgrade. Agents can never early upgrade. Tech support can never early upgrade. Basically, you have to call customer service and request a review for an early upgrade. They will look over your length of time as a customer, and your payment history. The number one determining factor of early upgrade is payment history. If you have missed any payments then their is pretty much a slim to none change of an early upgrade. A thirty day early upgrade must be approved by the CSR's supervisor.
A little off topic but I'm wondering if, with an extended battery and back, I'll still be able to use the cordless charger. Can that stick-on thingy be attached to the fatter battery?
