    A week ago I called and spoke to a rep who tells me it's possible that I may be able to get my Droid X at the contract price (I am not eligible until August of next year), because I can get my annual upgrade in December of this year. He say's it depends on who you talk to in the call center, and your credit history. He looks at my history and tells me it's the best he's seen in 3 years, which I know he's bsing me, but anyway. He says he'll check with his supervisor and call me back.

    I call them today to discuss this, and there's no record on my account of our conversation, and the girl says "Sorry, you're not eligible until December, Bye"


    Unreal.

    I've often found similar results. Really does depend on what CS rep you get. Someone will stale mate you, others will bend over backwards for you.

    Luck of the draw my friend.

    What I've always done.
    Don't get my wrong, there are things that they will not bend on, no matter who you speak to...

    Oh, I completely understand that there are things they can't bend on. But holy ****, I"m a good paying customer, I am on automatic deduction, and I have a corporate business line!

    I may be just screwing myself by even pursuing this though. I should just wait until December to get this rumored "DroidPro". Because I know when December rolls around, I'll want that thing, and then VZ will tell me to go f myself.

    What you just said is exactly why I'll either buy the X for full retail or just bypass it all together. I'm gonna play my hand when the 2ghz device comes out.

    I'm even willing to pay retail for this thing, but I know it's going to be in the 500$ range. But no one seems to know this for sure yet.

    You are New Every 2 in Aug but you can get contract price in Dec???

    I got the Droid opening day. Does that mean I can get something new in Dec?? I'm missing something.
