    If you're signing a new two year agreement, yes. This would just be a plan change so there's no reason you couldn't do it.

    Ah ok

    Well, the earliest I can get my new smartphone is the 17th at costco which is pretty farking awesome as my due date is actually the 27th according to the verizon store, but its the 24th for costco and they can call in and decrease the due date by an additional 7 days!

    Costco just rules period.

    I"ve printed the flyer out so I have proof in case this new plan isn't being shown in my area next week.

    Verizon can change the date too. Customer service is who either we or Costco would be calling.

    Interesting. I've been able to have the dates changed before. Both phones already have SD cards out of the box.

    I'm going to keep an eye on this and probably stop in to VZW to discuss my options. I have 4 months left on my contract. I'm not going to lock into the 1 year extension if it means I can't upgrade at contract price for another year. With 2 smartphones and a dumb phone on my account, I can save a decent chunk of change, especially if I give my son my phone.

    Contract dates and upgrade dates don't have to coincide. My contracts up way after my NE2 is.

    I think there could be 2 reasons for Big Red doing this:

    1. They are trying to get people to come over to their network before LTE starts rolling out and they charge a premium for LTE service (circa Sprint).

    2. This iPhone rumor is almost a sure-thing for release early 2011 on Verizon. They would obviously charge a premium, like ATT, to use iPhone. If they use the plans as they stand now, it would start at, what, $89 for the 450min plan? Plus an iPhone premium would put them well over $100, which I believe is more expensive than ATT. It makes sense for Big Red to drop their intro minutes/data plan to $69 because then they can charge a larger premium for iPhone data and make more money off those users.

    While #1 seems to be a good possibility, I think #2 would be the smart thing to go for in order for Verizon to capitalize on their service charges once the iPhone comes to their network.

    No, no source or proof whatsoever. I think the giveaway would be when I said "I think" repeatedly. Just my "conspiracy theory" I guess.

    I was told it is a email promotion and you need to forward them the email in order for you to get it.
