    As you might imagine the phone requires a new 2-year contract. You might also imagine that it is only good for one day — Friday, October 22.

    So head on over to Best Buy tomorrow or simply order via the website.

    I only paid $10 free shipping no rebates as a new customer for mine. The deals are out there if you look for them.

    They can't do upgrade customers. I tried the first week of the program. Verizon has prevented Best Buy's system from doing early upgrades for customers. :(
    The only option would be to get a new line & cancel your existing line and pay whatever early termination fee you owe.

    I'm still contemplating, but I'm not certain how worthwhile it is with the math.
    My situation is this.

    Early termination fee = $150
    Return restocking fee for the Fascinate I just purchased = $30
    New line & activation of new line = $30
    New "free" Fascinate on new line = $0
    Total cost to get a "free" Fascinate = $210

    vs.

    New Fascinate with early upgrade = $299
    Early upgrade rebate = -$100
    Early upgrade fee = $20
    Total cost for early upgrade Fascinate = $219

    So basically, I save $9 but i'm stuck with a new phone number that I have to distribute to EVERYONE I know basically...a number i've had for going on 10 years now.

    Someone please double check this information, but I believe you are not able to do an early upgrade via bestbuy.com.

    Verizon allows you to upgrade 2 months before your actual renewal date, however, I think this is only allowed at Verizon stores or on vzw.com and not through third parties like best buy.

    If I weren't waiting for a Cortex A9 phone I would have jumped on this.

    3 days away is not the same thing as an early upgrade.
    Early upgrade is when Verizon offers you a new phone at the discounted price when you've fulfilled the first 12-14 months of your 2 year contract. Best Buy can not honor this early upgrade discount. Nor can Amazon, or any other retailer besides Verizon.
