    Hi All! Technically, I'm not due for an upgrade until july of 2011 but i was wondering if there were any possibilities of getting good ol' verizon to hook me up with a D2 anyway w/o paying full retail price. Anyway, try it?

    Good luck. I've been trying for the x and even talked store managers. No luck.

    Funny you ask, I got a Droid1 the day it came out, and then upgraded my other line to a droid x. Well just got a nice nifty little pamphlet today from verizon inviting me in to go extend my droid1 line (no need to since i have an x of course...) but hopefully you'll get lucky enough to get a pamphlet as well!

    Verizon is letting a bunch of people upgrade early. I've only had my Storm for 8 months of a 2 yr contract and I was able to upgrade to a droid 2 with the discount. Lots of people are getting this deal right now.

    I wanted to give some kudos to the service rep who helped me, Larry Montero. He was very friendly/helpful (knew his stuff) and not pushy although I did get a couple accessories after he offered some nice discounts on screen protector and cases.


    anyway, if you are going to jump on this deal give him a call. His number is 888-924-7934 ext 8032. You'll skip all the phone tree menu stuff this way too.

    I was able to upgrade early, but I got a text message from VZW telling me that I could, so I didn't even have to ask.

    I now have a new Droid 2, and I have a good home for my original droid.

    My New-Every-2 was going to mature on Dec. 31st, but I just added the Droid 2 to my cart and it came out to $199. I didn't get any text message saying that I could upgrade early. Also, it looks like I don't have to bother with a rebate either because they only charged my CC $199.

    It's too bad I didn't see the $25 coupon until after I ordered. I did find a free overnight shipping coupon though.

    i will say call and ask. Be nice to them when doing so. They are doing this on a case by case basis. Store Managers cannot ovverride this

    My girlfriends upgrade was May of 2011. She called and complained about her BB saying it was slow, not running right and just said every single thing that was wrong with her phone, and she said she wanted to upgrade to a phone. They said yes right away and noted it on the computer. She picked up the droid 2 yesterday.

    some of the comments sound promising. Perhaps, I'll visit a local verizon store and ask nicely. The D2 being faster, having a much nicer keyboard and with more on-board storage is a very nice upgrade.

    I could have already upgraded, but i would have had to pay 200 dollars. This is why im waiting to spend my money on a real epic superphone like the Htc Merge or Droid Pro.
