    I know there are several VZW employees on this forum . I dropped my wife's thunderbolt the other day and cracked the screen . what are the odds of VZW letting me have an upgrade 2 months early??

    I'm not a Verizon employee, but I've heard/read of people begging and getting an upgrade early, especially when you're not THAT far from her upgrade date. I've also heard it's better to call into customer service, rather than going into a store.

    I've heard of maybe 2 week early upgrade due to accidents, but 2 months is quite a difference. You'll have to call Verizon and see if you can catch a break. Also agree with jnt, call Verizon, don't go into the store.

    I got a 4 month early upgrade. You just have to talk to the right person

    As I expected. 2 months is just too big of a gap. Good luck!

    Back when I worked for VZW, there was some leeway for your situation, but from friends still there, that leeway is pretty much gone now. If you get a month early, consider yourself very lucky, the matrix is apparently 2 weeks now.

    Don't know if I fully agree with that... :tongue: Honey tastes better than than crap. I've always found giving CS people "honey", instead of giving them crap, works a LOT better at getting what I want/need/deserve/whatever.

    i will just be respectful to them they are just doing there job. i work in a field that people get mad at me for something that is out of my control i just have to enforce rules and notify them if they break them .
    i learned you get more if you treat them with respect . its my fault i broke the screen not VZW. just my opinion

    Agree.....if its your fault then no need (didn't read your 1st post).

    Now if its Verizon that's a different story. And, depends on who you talk too

    Not all of us have gotten great CS. And unfortunately in our society, the ones who "express" their concern are usually the ones treated at a more escalated level.......
