    I'm not due for my actual uprgrade until March of next year and because I'm not the account holder I cannot access the upgrade information through the vzw website. Could anybody shed a little light on this for me? Like what kind of price difference there is to upgrade early? Also would they make you change your plan at all? Not trying to lose my unlimited data. Thanks

    As far as I know you're just required to pay an extra $20 above what the 2 year contract price is.

    You can start your contract over and get the low price on new phoned by simply paying 20 more?

    If u use your annual upgrade then its whatever the price is with a.2 year contract. The new every 2 would give u an extra $50 off the contract price

    the only line that can use the annual upgrade is the primary line and that line can upgrade after 13 months as long as the current plan was started before January 16, 2011. The rest of the lines must wait at least 20 months to upgrade at a discount. If they want to upgrade before that they must pay full retail for the new device of choice.

    Any contract started or extended after January 16, 2011 must complete at least 22 months before they can upgrade. (This applies to all lines)

    Edit: ^^ Of course you beat me by a few minutes...

    Well as your not the main line on a family plan (just assuming here) then AFAIK you can't upgrade early unless you call in and ask nicely and they let you. Right now the price to upgrade without a new contract is roughly 600-650 for the new high end phones, with an upgrade available its usually 250-300 (mostly 300) using the annual upgrade the price of the phone stays at the normal contract price, ^^ is correct about the 50 dollar discount with the new every 2.

    No more NE2

    New every 2 is dead, correct? (Verizon Ends New Every Two and Early Upgrades)

    "As of Jan. 16, the company will stop offering the credit to new customers and won't re-enroll current customers in the program after their next New Every Two upgrade."

    So this is the last of the less expensive upgrades for us.

    No, the article is correct, what he meant was anyone who signs a new contract after Jan. 16th will not get NE2, and if you have a NE2 on your account then you have the discount for one last time.

    Yikes. So basically I'm gonna lose unlimited data when I upgrade and that will also be the last NE2 discount for me? Aren't they making plenty of money as is?

    If you have unlimited you should be able to keep it. Recently my family upgraded to iphones and my sister's line which is unlimited will still keep her unlimited.
