    I've had my galaxy nexus since like march or April and while I've had no problems with it I've really been wanting the galaxy s 3 since it came out. Is there any way I can upgrade to the gs3 without paying the full retail price on the phone?

    I dont think you can. If you want the upgrade price you'd have to start a second line on your account or wait another year and a half for your existing line to be eligible. Plus if you did do an upgrade on your line you would lose your unlimited data.

    Depends how close you are to the end of your contract. I've heard maybe 3-4wks is the earliest, but I've heard some got 3mo ahead of time. Depends on your situation really.

    It also depends on who you talk to. I just got an early upgrade from May next year. Tell them you will agree to a new 2 year and that they know they can get a supervisors approval.
