    I've been a Verizon customer ever since way back when it was Airtouch Cellular. My 2 years is up on Marh 10th, but I'd sure like to get my Droid sooner than that. I've asked at the V Store a couple of times, but they don't seem to want want to let me move up from my Blackberry Curve until March 10th. Does anyone out there have any suggestions on how I can get this done sooner without having to hock my motorcycle along with the 2 family cats? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

    I just e-mailed Verizon Support saying I want to get a DROID but my New Every 2 Year isn't up till January. (This was back in december).

    The person just replied and said something like: "Thank you for your interest in DROID, I unlocked your New every 2 Year Discount, you can use it immediately if you wish."

    That was it.

    Call customer service, I NEVER go to the stores, reps on the phone always worked with me. I also have threatened to leave and they will come up with all kinds of discounts to keep you. Ask for the loyalty program.

    T-Mobile...Hmmm... I think they might see through that one!!! They can say what they want about Nexus. It's still not a Droid and I wouldn't wish T-Mobile on my worse enemy.

    I think that may be my best option. I'm a Volunteer Coordinator with the Metro Fre CERT Program and really need the capibilities of the Droid in order to help be better prepared in case there's a disaster situation. It's a public service and safety thing!!! That might work :icon_wink:

    My "new every two" wasn't due until July...but in November I got a text message saying I was eligible for an early upgrade. Just had to resign a 2 year contract.

    Apparently your 20 month upgrade eligibility is March 10. Your eligible if your two years is up on March 10. You'd have been eligible since November if you were.

    since your a long time customer you may want to see if your elegible for the VIP program. Heres the login page.

    https://store.verizonwireless.com/nevip/default.aspx

    with this you can upgrade every year... actually once you hit 10 months your elegible for an upgrade. 30% off accessories no activation fee's on new phones and other discounts too. Its nice to be able to switch phones every year and not have to pay the early upgrade charges.

    heres some of the info on it...

    I went to the store 4 months before my upgrade date, and they just said we will waive the additional cost. I did upgrade 2 phones to droids at the same time though.

    Funny, my very first cell phone was an Airtouch. Had Nextel and Sprint for the next 10 years and now just got the Droid!!

    Good luck getting your Droid:rockon:

    Ya this will be your best bet. I did that for my wife and they let her upgrade before the ne2 date while the store was saying no.

    they just sent me a notice.... i do know you need to be in a 79.99 plan or higher and make all your payments on time... i was in the program within my 1st contract with them.


    ive been told that they will enroll you within 6 months sometimes but dont know how true that is.

    I just talked to customer service 2 hours ago about V.I.P. She told me exactly what garrett said. You have to be on a 79.99/month or higher plan for 6 consecutive months with no late fees. She did confirm however that it would expire on Feb 2010. I asked her if they would start any different programs to replace vip and she didnt know.

    I can confirm without a doubt, the VIP program is ending positively for sure in February 2010, and at this time there are no plans to replace it with anything else.

    How do you get into the VIP program? How much do you have to spend?
