Not sure why but my contract with my bionic is up in September but as of may this year I have been eligible for an upgrade. I only have the one phone too.
I have been with Verizon around 10 years now. Before the bionic I had the BB storm which I kept over its two year contract, probably had that phone 3 years.
So just like I watched and followed the bionic awhile once it came out I have been doing the same on the S4. I know lots of bionic owners have gone with it. I'm just not sure yet.
I'm pissed. Last week VZW told me I could get the S4 upgrade 7/22 (though I was due 8/22). I called again today to confirm it and now they're telling I was told 7/22 in error. I'm pissed.
Well, after waiting 2 weeks, we finally went to the kiosk at Costco and decided to get the upgrade. Costco system would not let me keep the promotional 4Gb for $30 data plan. Wasted an hour on that. We'll try the corp store today. Sigh.
Upgrade date was 8/15. After many calls I got a rep to make a note on my account to say I may be eligible for an early upgrade 30 days early. Called on 7/15 referenced said note on my account and got early upgrade. Never had a late payment and been with them for 5 years. Rep needs manager approval in order to do so. Also iPhones are not eligible for early upgrade
