    Well, I called VZW today and they confirmed I can get an early upgrade of 30 days. I'll settle for that. I was due for an uprade Aug. 22 so now it'll be July 22. Better than nothing :)

    Definitely. He checked my actual usage and said that with the loss of unlimited, I wouldn't notice a thing. I'm excited. 18 days and counting :)

    If your carrier is VZW, then I couldn't see why not.

    I've been with Verizon for 8 years and I tried to upgrade a day early once and they wouldn't let me. Unreal but true!

    Amazing. I've been with them about that length of time as well, and if they had told me that, I'd have told them to disconnect my service. That really stinks.

    They will usually do it if you have perfect payment history. Thats one of the more popular metrics with which they determine pre-eligibility.

    The biggest thing for VZW in regards to early upgrades is payment history. As long as you have no late payments they will usually allow an early upgrade up to 30 days early.

    If you have an exceptionally long history, it can be sooner. I've been a customer for many years with Verizon, and I've negotiated upgrades months ahead of schedule.
