    You will get the promotional pricing.. whatever it is.. like $199 after $100 rebate with 2 year contract.. or whatever.. you get the point. If you want the NE2 discount then you will need to wait till month 20 of your current contract. The annual upgrade, for me at least, is $50 and my NE2 is $100. The amount varies depending on your plan and stuff.. but yes you can wait for Bionic and use your upgrade and get promo pricing. Just when you sign on again if you choose a 2 year contract then you will not be eligible for the promo pricing until month 20. If you pay the extra up front and get a one year contract then you are good come month 10. Make sense? Either way you go you will not get the extra on top of promo pricing unless they come out with a new plan once you sign a new contract.

    Oh and one last thing I have found out.. You have 6 months to use your upgrade.. Now this is not 6 months from now if you are on a two year contract. Once you are eligible for updgrade (month 20 for a 2 yr and month 10 for the one year) THEN you have 6 months to use it. However if you have a 2 year and you are eligible right now for the annual.. like me.. .You stil have time. The 6 month clock will not start until end of contract. This is what I have found reseraching online and according to reps.. I think this is stated in the official announcement too.. Any one know other on this piece?

    I have to say that this thread has been a very interesting read. Especially the part where someone was threatening the Early Termination then going to try to sign back up to another contract....... good luck with that. Also if any of you can't stand Verizon's "new policies" so much then what other phone company are you going to jump ship to? Where I live Verizon has the best coverage and they don't even have a store within 45 miles of my house. The other phone companies that are 15 miles away have crappy coverage.

    I'm not trying to rag on any of my fellow Droid fanatics. Just offering my 2 cents. I'm going to hold off on the new every 2 upgrade as long as possible. When I become eligable at the 20 month mark I will still wait a couple of months to try to get the best phone for the buck. I'm going to set a notification in the calendar app so I don't miss that 6 month window.

    With all of that being said I can't wait to see what kind of phones will be out this time next year. The phone that I pick will most likely be the one that all of the devs show interest in making roms for. After being rooted for so long I would feel wierd not having a phone that I could completely trick out. Maybe by then they will release a Droid 3 that will be a limited edition "C3PO" gold version that will complain every time that you get a text or email message.
