    when i look at my account it shows my contract runs out in 7 months.

    I clicked on early upgrade and tried to go through the steps choosing Droid X and it gave me the new two year contract price of 199.99.

    Is this right??

    If I do this will it eliminate an upgrade again in 7 months, if they are giving me the two year contract pricing at all times i may wait until the newer phones are released.

    I always assumed i would need to pay full retail before my 2 year contract was up.

    I could be mistaken so dont quote me but verizon is doung away with 2 year discount upgrades so I think they are teying to get everyone to up now or maybe the opportunity too before the change takes full hold. Their way of leveling the feild before bulldozing it so to speak.

    That was my thought at first. Wondering if this will go away and I should take advantage of upgrading now. I think i may prefer to the next wave of new android phones in the next few months if this pricing would still be available. May have to jump on it now and order the Droid X.

    You are upgrading with 7 months to go so you pay for the phone.
    And you are not choosing the cheapest one they have.

    not sure what u mean with either point. Full retail for the droid X is 600 and they are giving me 200. When i look on verizon site as new customer they also offer 200.

    And what are u saying is the cheapest???

    I think the cheapest right now is either the r2 droid 2 or maybe the fascinate. Anyway for a complete answer you should probably just go to verizon and lay out your situation. As it stands now, yes they are changing the new every 2 policy but that shouldn't matter for you since you signed a contract almost 2 years ago. Changing the rules on you specifically would be breaking the contract. So as far as I'm concerned you should be able to wait till your contract is up and get one of the next line of droids. However I don't work for verizon, nor do I know the lengths they'll go to to try and screw you over.

    Dell had a sale on the Droid X for $49. Shop around, Verizon is the most exspensive place to buy.

    But isnt the only way to get it for that price is if, you are starting a new contract? i dont think you can renew for the price. i hope im wrong cuz for 50 bucks im sold.

    Yes this exactly. The reason i was surprised by this was because of the fact that full retail was so expensive, I dont wanna bring it to verizons attention if it is a mistake lol

    See the first part I quoted -- this is precisely what "early upgrade" means. ;)
