    You can only Upgrade early if your contract is up between now and December. If after that you will have to wait. My question to you is when is yours up?

    Is your 12 month early upgrade option up in Dec or is your contract up in Dec? If it is your upgrade option, then it doesn't apply. Your contract has to be up. But try calling 611 - they'll often do something if they can, and if you are persistent and nice.

    I'm interested in their response to their promotion then, since you appear to fit the bill.
    Have you found the press release yet? I don't think that link to nexus404.com is going to do much. ;)

    That nexus404 page says they got the info from the end of a press release - didn't you read that?
    I don't know where their press release page is with that info. Did you try googling for it? I don't see a link to it from that nexus404 page either.

    Here it is I found it for you...

    http://news.vzw.com/news/2010/06/pr2010-06-22.html


    Customers can add the optional 3G Mobile Hotspot service to their DROID X for $20 per month. The 3G Mobile Hotspot allows customers to turn the phone into a wireless modem for up to five compatible Wi-Fi devices. In addition, current Verizon Wireless customers who have contracts ending by December 31, 2010, can upgrade to any smartphone, including DROID X, without penalty.

    In addition to what others have stated, you can not currently have a 3G smart phone, your bill must be current, and you can't use a buddy upgrade.

    I have an EnV Touch which is not a 3G smartphone
    I live in PA(pennsylvania
    THEY told me i HAVE to wait for my standard 2 year upgrade
    ----------------------------------------
    As far as you guys are telling me, i fit everything needed to get the phone when i went, unless they are pulling some scheme to charge me for something i dont know about, then they are just turning me away...

    Call Customer Service and talk to them. They can update your account to show you're eligible for an upgrade. If the CSR doesn't, escalate to a manager. They'll do it for you. Then all you'll have to do is wait a week or two to get the phone.

    That's cool. Verizon will work with you. They want you in their contracts. I'm leaving the Storm 1 world and jumping ship to Droid also. I hope it's everything I think it's gonna be.
