    (Sorry if I'm not posting in the right forum.. I thought this was the closest one to my question..)


    I've got the original Motorola Droid, and really want to get something better (like the Thunderbolt)..

    I upgraded to this phone on 08/04/2010.. and signed a "2-year contract".
    Online it says I can upgrade "For full price", and that I "am eligible for an upgrade on 04/04/2012". I don't want to wait until then, and I certainly don't want to pay full price for a phone!

    Anyone have anyways of getting around this / getting Verizon to let you upgrade early??

    Verizon had an annual upgrade if your line is the main line or above $40 this is going away but you may receive one in august at the one year mark as a final one, good luck!

    The absolute soonest they were letting people do the early upgrades was after one year. Is the TB the only phone you'd be interested in, lots of folks trying to sell phones in the wake of the TB, might be able to get a deal on ebay/craigslist. This could maybe hold you over...
