    I purchased the droid on 12/09 and I thought we get to upgrade after a year for the discount price plus $20? It says I'm not eligible.

    I moved your post as it was not a droid related question.

    Ha, sorry I wasn't paying attention. I just want to get an iphone and sell it, but it says I'm not eligible for an upgrade.

    Yeah it's been known to happen before. I'd second the notion to give them a call and see what they say about it. Better to get it straight from their mouth then to get possibly second hand information.

    I think he's more talking about any upgrade at all. He's saying he isn't elligable for any. He was just gonna use it for the Iphone. Unless that was sarcasm about the Iphone being lesser..in that case...toúche sir toúche.

    Don't know the terms of your contract. Ask Verizon.

    Yep, I'm eligible.

    And I was gonna get the iPhone to sell it and make like $400. The line I was going to upgrade is a line I will always have so I don't mind extending my contract. And I have another line used for REAL phones lol.

    You might want to rethink your thought there....if you get an upgrade and don't activate it on one of your lines you will get charged full price. Key word is activated.

    Really? So I guess Verizon isn't like at&t when it comes to upgrades.

    Oh well no big deal.

    all you have to do is just activate it then activate your old phone, you wont have to take the phone out of the box or anything like that.

    How much is your voice plan per month? If you are on a voice plan that costs less than $49.99 a month; you are not eligible for an annual upgrade. Found that out a couple of months ago. I switched to the 450 minute plan back in 11/09 when I bought my Droid, since I was only using ~300 minutes per month, and lost my annual upgrade eligibility.

    Actually you will, because you have to plug into itunes to activate.
